I’ve been stamping again! For this mani I used two polishes of the Velvet Collection by Dance Legend. As the name suggests they dry to a semi matte velvet finish. The base color is two coats of number 644. For the stamping design I used number 637 which is such a gorgeous polish. I’ll be showing a full swatch of that one in the near future. It has so much more to it than it shows here. The stamping plate is by MoYou London, number 04 (Pro XL). And of course I didn’t apply top coat here. Thanks for stopping by! :*
Have you seen Adina’s recent collection called the Rossetti’s Goddess Collection? There are four gorgeous holographic shades to choose from that all have a little extra to them. The one that caught my eye was Captive Goddess:Such a complex shade. Me loves! It’s grey/blue with a bright blue flash to it. And lets not forget the holographic finish. Just lovely! The formula is great and application was a breeze. Shown is two coats plus top coat.The Rossetti’s Goddess Collection is available for purchase at Hypnotic Polish (worldwide shipping).
Today I have my first blobbicure to share with you:I used Die for high heels by ANNY as my base colors and Deep in love (orange) and Indian sun (yellow), also by ANNY.
I thought this technique was more difficult than it turned out to be. I found that it’s best to use polishes that are more fluid (newer polishes for example). I started with one coat of my base color and gave it a while to dry. Then I applied one more (generous) coat of my base color (one nail at a time!) and applied the other two colors while the base was still wet. I simply used the brush of the polish itself for this. Give it a while to dry and then add top coat for extra shine :D
Have you tried this technique yet?
The Caviar Collection by Dance Legend consists of 12 different colors packed with black and white micro glitter. Some of them also have metallic micro glitter in the mix. Pseudochromis (1008) also has metallic magenta glitter besides the black and white. This one has a pink leaning purple jelly base. I used three thin coats plus top coat here.
Asteroidea, the pink one from this collection is still available at Hypnotic Polish.
All Dance Legend polishes can be found on their website.
Today I have an oldie to show you. As you might know I love to collect old polishes. You know, the hard to find ones that are mostly discontinued. In case of OPI’s, give me all the Black Label polishes and I’m a happy girl. Even if they have a weird stinky formula. Yes, I’m weird like that ;)
Thoroughly Modern Millie is one of them. It belongs to the Holiday on Broadway Collection from 2003 (I believe). If I recall correctly I purchased this together with La Boheme as a set. That one was on my wish list for a very long time. Such a beauty!
Anyway, this is a sheer slightly tinted base with silver micro glitter. The sheer base is somewhat duochrome. In some angles it seems pink/purple while in other angles I can see hints of green. Very unusual. I applied two coats over black undies here.
The pick below shows the green better:Any thoughts about old polishes? Do you search the web to find that particular discontinued polish?
For this years Kingsday I decided to create another water marble nail art. This reminds me how many things I still need to share here with you guys. I’m so behind with posting!
This is not perfect but I’m pretty happy with the outcome:For this design I used the following polishes:
Essence: wild white ways – 33 (white)
Essence: topscorers (red)
Essence: electriiiiiic – 31 (blue)
OPI: A Roll In The Hague (orange)What do you think of this design?
Thanks for stopping by! :*
How about another creation by Hare Polish? Here’s My Log Has Something To Tell You:I picked this one up because of it’s lovely base color. And of course because it contains flakies :) It’s described as a greyed out taupe with reddish copper flakies, blue flakies, plus metallic silver and gold flakies. Lovely!
Shown is three thin coats plus top coat. That’s all for today! See you tomorrow :*
