Since Nordic Cap’s pale pink shimmer 14 was so girly I decided to go with the pink all the way 🙂 I stamped feathers with Barry M’s Raspberry, dotted with Barry M’s Silver Foil and topped it off with dots of Sinful Colors’ vibrant pink shimmer Forget Now. This isn’t very… me 🙂
Nordic Cap’s number 14 is a pale peachy pink (a tad more pink IRL) polish full of white shimmer. The application was decent, it needed three coats for opacity and had the same drying issues as the other Nordic Caps I own.
Normally I apply top coat immediately but this time I wanted to experiment and see how long it took for the polish to dry. I ate dinner and when done the polish was almost dry. You could still dent it with your nails but you didn’t run a risk of snagging off some of it in passing.
Indies are my new weakness… I got my recent orders from Pahlish and Darling Diva Polish the other day and oh boy… Amazing doesn’t even begin to describe it. And to think that I swore not to get into indies before… Pfft. Madness! Pahlish is the BEST at creating dense glitter/shimmer/fleck mixes in greens and blues and I just had try DDP’s holographic top coat.

My order from Darling Diva Polish contained Ringer, Dreamy and Bitches Have Birthdays.
With Essie’s Going Incognito as the base I dotted flowers with Gina Tricot’s light green Another Bite. For the centers I used Gina Tricot’s yellow Aspen Gold and China Glaze’s Four Leaf Clover (which was also used for the dots between the flowers).
It’s Green Wednesday again over at Vacker&Underbar 😀
Essie’s Going Incognito is a lovely emerald green creme leaning on teal. I just LOVE this color and it actually was on my wish list a long time before I finally ordered it 🙂 so pleased to finally be able to use it both by itself and as a base for nail art.
Application was good although the formula was a bit on the thinner side and tried to escape and pool at the cuticles. Fully opaque at two coats and dried reasonably fast.
Over China Glaze’s Grape Pop I dabbed two coats of Glitzology’s Cotton Candy which consists of a lavender shimmery base full of medium sized light blue, white and pink hex glitter, red and light pink square glitter and smaller hex glitter in pink. I had some issues with dispersing the glitter evenly on each nail but it doesn’t make the polish less pretty 🙂
Daddy’s Little Girl from Girly Bits (here over OPI’s dark blue Roadhouse Blues) has been a lemming for a long time… Finally mine! 😀 It contains blue glitter in many, many sizes and small purple hex glitter.
Lindas Nailorama has adopted Blue Monday 🙂
I was in the mood for some kind of tape manicure and decided to my whip out my trusted Scotch tape and just use Cult Nails’ dark brown Swanbourne as the base since I was already wearing it. Barry M’s Silver Foil and Cult Nails’ Power Thief are used for the second and third layer. Brown polishes are few and far between in my stash and I can remember why now… I rarely like the outcome when matching them to other polishes, unless it’s something minty ^^
I need to make more tape manicures from now on though… They are a ton of fun to design and paint.
It’s Nail Art Sunday @ LeLack 🙂
