Ingrid’s favorite clover

I like simple dotticures, especially when done with one of my favorite color combinations; browish/taupe and a lighter green or minty color. This is China Glaze’s Ingrid as the base and Four Leaf Clover for the dots.

China Glaze’s Ingrid

China Glaze’s Ingrid is a lovely brownish taupe with golden shimmer. It sure had a flawless application and was opaque at two coats (according to the pictures it could use another one though, wasn’t noticable in person).


Disturbing peridot

Wet N Wild’s purple Disturbia was used as the base for some quite subtle stamping with Chanel’s Peridot. I’ll try another stamp next time and perhaps another dark base as I quite like the toned down stamping of Peridot ๐Ÿ™‚

I decided to be part of NailArt Sunday over at LeLack for the first time. ๐Ÿ™‚



There are certain polishes in my stash with a clear, tinted base that are perfect for layering. Many of them I’ve never tried on their own, and I have no idea why…Kleancolor’s Green With Envy is one of them. It has a yellowish green tinted base with large green hexagon glitter and smaller green glitter.

After two coats of Essie’s Spaghetti Strap as underwear I painted/dabbed two coats of Green With Envy on top. I quite like the result and doesn’t the green look toxic? ๐Ÿ™‚

Illamasqua’s Glitterati

Illamasqua’s Glitterati is a dark raspberry (leaning on plum) jelly with a ton of small micro glitter and medium prismatic hex glitter. It needed two coats for full opacity and color depth. Unfortunately the polish looks more stunning in the bottle as usual but is by no means uninteresting on the nails.

Oh, and ignore the watermark… I went through a short phase of trying it but came to the conclusion it was too much work ๐Ÿ˜›
