Nail Pattern Boldness “Aquamarine”
Today it’s Wednesday again and I’m wearing green to participate in “Grön onsdag”/Green Wednesday at Vacker & Underbar. I decided to try on a new dark green polish I just got the other day. It’s a store exclusive polish for Edgy Polish from Nail Pattern Boldness called “Aquamarine”. It’s a dark green jelly filled with magenta glitter. It dries kind of textured due to the glitter so top coat is a must if you want glossy nails! The formula was good but because it’s a jelly I had to paint 3 coats to get it opaque.
It’s a beautiful polish … but, I can’t really tell what’s wrong, it just doesn’t do the trick for me Sad, because it’s gorgeous, but not on me. Well, sometimes it’s just not right.

A bit closer
There’s no snow in the south of Sweden where I live, it’s just grey and dark 😦 and today I’m sporting grey nails as well. Not just an ordinary grey but a stunning grey crelly/holo polish from Glam Polish called “Avalanche”. To sparkle it up a bit I added swirls with nail vinyls from Twinkled T and Glam Polish “Bewitched”. Using nail vinyls is easy nail art for beginners. Just make sure your polish base is dry before you start!
Glam Polish “Avalanche”, photo with flash
This mani was tricky to photograph … No natural light in the evenings (and I don’t yet have a light box) and with flash I get the holo finish to show but the swirl patterns isn’t showing very well. On the other hand a photo without flash gets quite dark but then the swirl pattern is showing.
No flash, dark picture but here you can see the nice swirl pattern.
Strangely enough my pictures is showing much more blue tone to the polish than in real life and in daylight. And yeah, I haven’t figured out photo editing programs yet. You just have to bare with me ’til I figure this whole photographing thing out.
I have bought both bottles, “Avalanche” and “Bewitched” from Edgy Polish.
A little of the holo effect is showing …
“Avalanche” has great formula, this is two coats over Aqua Fix base coat, plus top coat.
I got nail mail yesterday from a dear friend on Instagram ❤ and I had to try one of the polishes right away, Catrice LE Viennart Collection “Pearlescent Purpose”.
It’s a gorgeous warm white pearl and I thought it was the perfect base for a subtle holo gradient so I added Indigo Bananas “Do you have a Flag?”, which is a gorgeous white/silver holographic polish. I didn’t sponge this gradient, I only used the brush and painted several layers on top.

I just love the effect! ❤ It’s elegant, soft and very feminine.
Do you se the holo effect?
I think these nails will stay on for the whole weekend 🙂 But you never know, I’m known for changing polish often!! Ha ha!
