Here’s an extra post to show you the newest addiction to the shop. Meet At The End of the Rainbow, an intense lavender holographic glitter polish. Not your ‘regular’ holographic awesomeness though. This sparkles like crazy. Shown here is two coats plus top coat:Natural daylight:And a macro bottle shot in direct sunlight:Like it? Get yours at the shop 🙂
Catrice recently released a new limited edition collection called Viennart. Today I have two of the four polishes from this collection to show you.For my base I used two coats of Vienna Rose Woods. This has a lovely shimmer running throughout which sadly my camera refused to capture. The formula is nice but I think you’ll need three thin coats for full coverage when you wear it on its own. The warm red is called ARTful Red, also two coats. I love that one. It has a gorgeous shimmer or are these flecks? Either way, it is so pretty! The formula is perfect and it has a great pigmentation. This turned out to be a pretty combination, don’t you think?
Ahhh look at this gorgeousness! This is 512afrom the Confetti range by El Corazon.
El Corazon keeps amaze me with the amazing formula of their polishes. This is another micro glitter but this one is holographic. Yay! Lilac and holographic micro glitter swimming in a pink base. It dries super fast to a semi matte and slihtly gritty finish. I used two coats for full coverage. Then I added two coats of top coat. This polish is top coat thirsty so one coat simply doesn’t give a smooth and glossy finish. Nevertheless I absolutely love this!
This polish is, along with many other amazing polishes from great brands, available at Hypnotic Polish (worldwide shipping!).
I’m back with a thermal polish! 😀 172 from the Termo range by Dance Legend changes from silver/white when warm to purple/crimson when warm. It’s jam packed with shimmer. L-O-V-E! The formula is great, opaque in two flawless coats.
I’ve found a gorgeous polish that would be especially perfect for Fall. Amethyst from the Sahara Crystal Collection by Dance Legend is such a gorgeous color! This textured polish is packed with lots of fine magenta glitter/shimmer which makes it very interesting to stare at all day 😀 It’s very pigmented. The formula is good. I used two coats for these photo’s. Lovely, don’t you think?
When I saw that Catrice released an Ombre Top Coat I just needed to try it out. I mean, wouldn’t it be great to create an ombre look by just having to apply multiple coats of top coat?
Oh and have you seen their new Luxury Lacquers for Fall? There are eight new shades. This time they come in square shaped bottles which give them a chic look. I will be swatching and reviewing them soon, so stay tuned!
On to the Ombre Top Coat. It looks brownish in the bottle. The formula is extremely liquid and therefore slightly runny. But no worries, with careful application that shouldn’t be a problem. The label on the bottle says: “Get the exclusive Ombre Look on your nail. The Ombre Top Coat turns your light nail polish colour one shade darker with each coat“. It should work with all light colors. Alright, time to put it to the test! I used three coats of Lilactric, also by Catrice as my base color. Love this shade! Then I did the following: pointer: one coat of HK Girl top coat by Glisten & Glow; middle: one coat of Ombre Top Coat; ring: two coats of Ombre Top Coat; pinky: three coats of Ombre Top Coat.
As mentioned, the formula is extremely liquid. Also, I find that it doesn’t apply evenly, meaning you can see some brushstrokes that turned out darker. Nevertheless, I really like the effect that this top coat gives. I do think that it works even better with a non shimmery base color. I will try that soon too. Also, of course I need to try if it works with darker colors, even when the bottle says it’s meant for lighter colors. I’m curious!Tell, me… what do you think of this top coat?
