Hundred Years Winter by Femme Fatale is such a beauty and quite unique to my stash. My photo’s doesn’t do it justice. It has a gorgeous icy blue glow in it. The formula is great. I used two coats for full coverage. On the nails of my middle- and ring finger I applied water decals by MILV (number S47).
The macro shot below shows the blue glow a bit better but still not as much as it shows in real life. Take a look at the bottle, so pretty:Femme Fatale polishes are available at their website. Note that they have pre sales every once in a while which lasts for only 5 days. So if you have some Femme Fatale’s on your wishlist, I recommend to follow them on Instagram so you don’t miss out on future pre sales. I’ve ordered twice and they are gone within an eye blink.
Oh, and they also stock other fantastic (indie) brand plus they have their own line of various unique cosmetics 😉
Another polish that was sitting in my pile of untrieds for way too long is Bonkersby piCture pOlish:What a lovely creamy purple polish. This has a nice formula and is opaque in two coats. For my accent nail I used water decals by MILV, number N187. I’ve only tried a few of MILV’s designs and I seriously am in love! They are super easy to work with and application is a breeze. Some designs, including this one, are designed to wear over white undies. I’m so pleased with how these turned out.
As mentioned in a previous post, my new camera has a macro lens and I am over the moon excited about it. Not only because now I can take macro photo’s but more because you can see every single tiny detail which aren’t that noticeable with the naked eye. I can recommend it to everyone. So much fun! For example… see all the pixels of the design in the photo below:I was like ‘holy crap’ when I saw this on full screen. And yes, you can also see the imperfections, such as the fold of the design. But hey, who cares when you can see all the fab details. Have you tried MILV decals yet? They are available at Hypnotic Polish and come in many different designs.
The minute I saw that Maria from Hypnotic Polish added MILV water decals to her store I knew I needed to try some. They look fantastic and I have heard nothing but great things about them. The ones that caught my immediate attention were the peacock decals (number N156):The packaging says to use exclusively a white base color before application. That’s what I did here. You can cut the designs however you like, a great plus if you ask me. That way you can also choose to just add a little piece and save the rest for another mani. And they are different sized. Also, this particular sheet has three different peacock designs.
After the white base was completely dry I added the piece to a cup filled with water and waited about 30 seconds. I used tweezers to gently slide of the design of it’s back paper and placed it on the nail. I’ve found that dabbing a little water on the nail before applying the decal gives you more room to set in in the right place. Then gently press on the design and give it some time yo dry before applying top coat. Don’t forget to seal the tip(s) of your nail(s) with top coat to prevent the design from chipping.
I paired this design with Washeteriaby MAC. What a lovely color. The formula is nice and creamy. I needed two coats for full opacity. Have you tried MILV water decals yet? They are available at Hypnotic Polish and come in many lovely design.
