Enchanted Polish: Entwined

Hi sweeties!

Before we jump into today’s (a-w-e-s-o-m-e) polish a little heads up: the SAMCRO Collection (part 2) has officially launched at the shop! If you missed out on the pre order, now is the time to grab your fave’s.

Alright, on to something super excited! Entwined is a collab shade by Enchanted Polish created together with the talented Dorra a.k.a. Didoline. This one is definitely one of my all time favorite polishes ever:ep - entwinedSuch a stunner! The formula is great. I used two smooth coats plus top coat here.ep - entwined2I took a bazillion photo’s f this and every time it looked different. ep - entwined1See that blue glow? Absolutely stunning!
One more…ep - entwined3If you need to pick just one Enchanted Polish, this should be it. As mentioned in an earlier post, these polishes are mostly exclusively available during pre-orders which only last for a couple of hours. If you’re planning on adding some of Chelsea’s polishes to your collection I recommend to sign up for their newsletter so you don’t miss out :)

Sophin: 274 + 269 – Neon Sand Effect

Happy Friday!

Neon AND textured? Of course I needed to try that! sophin 269 2742For this mani I created a gradient effect with 269 (pink) and 274 (yellow), both from the Neon Sand Effect line by Sophin. This brand recently launched at Hypnotic Polish and is definitely worth checking out. There’s a wide range of colors and finishes available for a reasonable price. These polishes do not need a white base to get that bright neon effect. I used a make up sponge to apply the colors over just one coat of base coat.sophin 269 2741I used black stamping polish by Mundo De Unas and MoYou ProXl plate 04 for the butterfly wings. sophin 269 2743 Have a fabulous weekend!

ThumbsUp Nail Wraps: Rorschach

Not satisfied with your nail art skills or don’t have the time for it? ThumbsUp Nail Wraps might be perfect for you! And… they are currently on sale at Hypnotic Polishthumbs up rors chachA huge thanks to Maria for gifting this set to me. This design is called Rorschach. I love it and was surprised how easy it was to apply them. A pack contains 2 sheets with 10 nail wraps each in different sizes. I applied base coat to protect my nails and after that was dry I checked which designs fit my nails best. Then gently peel the design off the backing paper en place it on the nail. I used tweezers to apply them on my nails (one nail at a time). I’ve found that they worked best when firmly press them on the nail beginning in the middle and if needed gently stretch them towards the sides and press again. If they are in place, stretch them towards the tips of the nails and fold them over the free edge. Use a file to get rid of the excess and your done. The instructions say that you can apply gel top coat for a long lasting and glossy finish. I didn’t do that here since they are glossy by itself. I did apply my fave top coat (HK Girl by Glisten & Glow) on one nail to see if it worked. That caused the design to wrinkle and cracks started to show up. I don’t know if it’s the top coat that caused this but I felt the need to mention it. Obviously I re did that damaged design :) Here’s a closer look to the individual designs:

ILNP: Black Orchid

There are moments that you see photo’s of a polish and instantly feel the need to have it. For me Black Orchid by ILNP is one of them. ilnp - black orchid2Such a gorgeous color! The photos above and below is taken in direct sunlight to show the holographic finish. Lovely! The formula is great and application was easy. I used three thin coats plus top coat but two coats would be fine. ilnp - black orchid1And below you can see how it looks in natural daylight:ilnp - black orchidThis beauty is, along with many other gorgeous creations by Barbra, available at Hypnotic Polish.
