“True Blood” Lilypad Lacquer
Today I have yet another gorgeous holo from Lilypad Lacquer to show you. This time it’s a vampy dark plum shade. Oh, so beautiful especially when the light hits the nails and the gorgeous holo shows ❤
Sadly this shade is discontinued/LE so the only chance you have to get your hands on this beauty is a destash or on Ebay etc. But if you come accross it I definitely recomend you to buy it!!
Two easy coats, and perfect finish like every other shade from Lilypad Lacquer I’ve tried. I enjoyed this shade a lot when I wore it.
Lilypad Lacquer “Nature Child” is the base for this mani with quatrefoil and a French Lily
Today’s nails are green because it’s Wednesday and I want to participte in Karin’s “Green Wednesday at her blog Vacker & Underbar. You know how it works by now 😉 Read the rest of this entry
Lilypad Lacquer “Molten Minx”
I’m very fond of nudish gray/brown colors and this is a very good example of my taste! This is Lilypad Lacquer “Molten Minx”, a holographic polish that’s grayish brown/bronze and very beautiful. Two easy coats and top coat – good to go! I bought this from Edgy Polish who’s a new stockist of this Australian indie brand. Read the rest of this entry
A England “Dancing with Nureyev”
As an old ballet dancer and a ballet lover it’s natural that I love everything ballet themed and this stunning blue holographic polish from A England’s collection Ballerina is no exception.
“Dancing with Nureyev” is a violet-blue shade, a soft romantic blue yet very sophisticated and very suitable to a ballet theme. Depending on the lighting the shade looks violet or blue and the scattered/prismatic holo particles give another dimension to the polish.
A romantic and elegant violet-blue
The formula is stunning, as all polishes from A England. This is two coats, but I think you could get away with only one if you apply it a little thicker.
To emphasize the romantic feeling I’ve added a little stamping on my ring fingers, the swirly tree pattern is from Moyou Mother Nature 11 and I used Mentality “Opaque White”.
Stamping with Mentality Opaque White and Moyou Mother Nature 11
Mentality “Opaque White” is a white stamping polish that’s pearlescent or a bit on the silver side and not that matte white I’m used to with stamping polishes. I think it gives the stamping a very elegant feel to it.
Matches my distressed jeans perfectly!
You can find both A England and Mentality Nail Polish at Edgy Polish, as well as some Moyou London stamping plates and rhinestones.
Black Dahlia Lacquer “Wild Orchid”
Today I’ve got a gorgeous orchid colored polish from Black Dahlia Lacquer to show you. It’s called “Wild orchid” and it’s a pinkish purple or purplish pink 😀 No, orchid purple is the best term, I think! Anyway, it’s a stunning color and it’s a holographic polish so I’m in love! I saw a swatch of this polish about two weeks ago and just knew I had to get my hands on it. So glad I did!
It’s part of their new Valentine’s day blogger collaboration, it’s total 6 shades in this collection.
The formula is great but I needed 3 coats to get full opacity. Maybe you could get away with 2 coats but I did 3 quite thin coats.
You can order Black Dahlia Lacquer from their own website or on Etsy.
Today I have a gorgeous turquoise polish to show you – “Cerrillos” from Cirque Colors. I bought this in June last year and haven’t worn it until now(!) I ask myself why? because it’s absolutely beautiful!!
“Cerrillos” is a linear holographic and it gets opaque in two coats. For my long and ring finger I topped “Cerrillos” with a stunning glitter from Homei “17T”. Homei is a Taiwanese brand I think and I got this polish, along with 3 others, from a friend in Japan 🙂 All my photos are taken indoors sadly, with flash, but at least you can see some of the holo effect.
Cirque Colors “Cerrillos”
Homei color 17T
I think these two polishes compliment each other perfectly
My bottle of “Cerrillos” I bought from Edgy Polish and I got Homei from a friend in Japan. I really don’t know if they have any retailers outside Asia or if you can order direct from them.
Such a majestic purple shade
Majestic purple with a tone of magenta, shimmer and a scattered holo ❤ that’s my decription of A England “Crown of thistles” from their Elizabeth & Mary collection.
Two easy coats plus top
This polish has a smooth formula that applies like butter, two easy coats and you’re done 🙂
For this look I also applied black holo rhinestones. I put them on when my top coat is still wet, usually I don’t need to glue them. Theses rhinestones I bought from Twinkled T.
A little closer, look at the magenta flash!
Unfortunately it’s very dark at winter here in Sweden so most days I don’t have time to photograph my nails in daylight, so all these photos is taken with flash. I hope the sun comes out tomorrow so I can see the real holo effect.
Blue sky and sunshine!
