Here are some really old pictures of a favorite polish of mine. Usually charcoal polishes tend to be a bit bland and borins. Love & Beauty’s Charcoal is far from boring and it even has a perfect formula; easy to apply opaque at one generous coat and it dries fast.
I wore China Glaze’s Stone Cold to work the other day and when it started chipping (no polish lasts more then a day on me… help!) I decided to create some kind of nail art on top of it to wear to work next day. I used Cheeky’s Jumbo plate B and Barry M’s Silver Foil on top for stamping. After that I dotted with Nordic Cap’s neon pink 15.
It’s also Nail Art Sunday over at LeLack’s and this fits the free theme perfectly 🙂
It’s Holo Friday over at Skimmerskuggan’s again and this friday I do have a post for you 🙂
Holographic polishes are a double edged sword for me… I like the effect (although the name itself is totally illogical…) and they’re incredibly beautiful on other people. Most of the time I think they distract from the color underneath though and I don’t wear them alone very often. Color Club’s Revvvolution is one of a few exceptions.
The base is a lovely dark grey, charcoaly color and the rainbows in my bottle are a little bit understated in most lighting besides the sun. I also percieve the rainbows as a little bit golden in person? Not sure why. As far as I know there are different versions of Revvvolution that vary in how strong the holographic effect is and I’m not sure which one I own.
The formula is amazing; besides drying really fast application is a breeze as it goes exactly where you want it to. You could also get away with just a single generous coat (but I used two due to user error).
And lastly… A lovely song 🙂
It’s Green Wednesday over at Vacker&Underbar’s and I decided to use striping tape to create a tape manicure 🙂 China Glaze’s green Zombie Zest was the base for chevrons painted with Misa’s charcoal-y Dying Love.
