Today I’ve created a cute turtle mani in different blue shades and textures. I’ve also embellished the mani with a little turtle made of Fimo. Read the rest of this entry
No, I’m not talking about the hard rock band Deep Purple … I’m talking about the gorgeous “I mist this (color in my life)” from Chick Pick Polish 😀
Kari’s new matte collection is amazing. Well pigmented and very nice finish. She started her own indie line of polish late last year and offers international shipping through her online shop. Well, back to the polish.
“I mist this (color in my life)” is a blackened purple with shimmer which makes the polish almost look metallic even though it’s matte! I really love this polish. The application is flawless. The first coat won’t cover the nail but the second coat evens it all up and you’re done 🙂 I always use base coat under my nail polish, and this time is no exception. I used OPI “Natural base coat” and let it dry completely before I begun to paint with the purple.
For today’s nails I’ve used Glam Polish (again, it’s my favorite brand), a new matte polish from Chick Pick Polish and panda water decals from Born Pretty Store (BLE1493). I really like how these turned out! Cute and funky 🙂
Glam Polish “Tinker Bell” is really a bright lime green. I love it, you must feel happy with such green nails!! This is two coats and top coat. And the white matte polish “Snow Fresh” from Chick Pick Polish is gorgeous. This is three thin coats and of course no top coat.
This is my contribution to Green Wednesday at the Swedish blogg Vacker & Underbar, go there to see more green manis!!
I have a lot of stamping plates but rarely use them 😦 so I’ve decided to do more stamped manicures in 2015. Practise makes perfect, doesn’t it?!?
For this manicure I’ve used Crows Toes “L’il miss Sunshine”, Chick Pick Polish “Golden Meadow”, a little China Glaze “Fairy Dust” (just one thin coat over green “Golden Meadow”) as a base and then stamped it with OPI “Do you have this color in Stock-holm?” . The stamping plate I used is Princess 01 from Moyou and I chose a flower pattern.
Crows Toes “L’il Miss Sunshine” is a beautiful purple shimmer polish with Microsoft flakes/shimmer that shifts in green, silver and violet blue. I have three coats on my pictures.
Chick Pick Polish “Golden Meadow” is a warm golden to olive green chrome polish. Two coats plus one thin coat of China Glaze “Fairy Dust” to add a little sparkle to match the purple.
I think this mani turned out to be very spring-like, I think of tulips when I see my nails and I just love tulips!
