I haven’t worn a metallic in ages, but I felt like something red and white so broke out my LA Colors Antique Burgundy, which is a gorgeous deep red with some hidden golden flashes to it, and stamped over it with a Bundle Monster plate.
My pinky and ring finger have Dandy Nails You Set my Soul Alight, which is just absolutely gorgeous, especially in the sunlight, and the rest of my nails have the amazing A England Ascalon with some generic black stamping and black rhinestones.
OK, so I am crazy in love with this. I won the new Bundle Monster plates in a competition by the lovely Chrissie, and this one pattern I knew I just had to try right away. This is one coat of a cheap Primark blue/purple duochrome layered over black and then stamped over with a white polish. Absolutely enchanting to me :)
I was so in the mood for a specific kind of purple, and turns out I own one. I guess that’s the good side to owning way too many polishes, you can almost always find what you feel like :P This is two coats of a Beauty UK purple with some Nina Ultra Pro Glitterific dabbed on.
I’ve been having some top coat issues, so please forgive that aspect, but other than that, these nails were astoundingly pretty. It’s a soft peachy pink with holographic glitter with some silver glequins added for good measure.
I recently bought some foils because I haven’t tried them, and they were cheap. But oh lord is i finicky, and doesn’t last very long, and doesn’t look very nice, and maybe I’m just bad at using them. Turns out I am also terrible at choosing complimenting glitters when I’m tired, please do forgive me, this is truly awful -.-.
I bought this and a pink polish from tmart recently as they were advertised as colour changers, and I’d never tried that kind of polish before. HAHAHA colour changing my butt :P There is absolutely no shifting happening with any of the polishes, regardless of the freezing or boiling conditions you put them under. At least they look kind of pretty as they are, I guess. This is Lemon with a topper of Maybelline Chalk Dust.
This is O.P.I Pink-ing of You with freehanded golden tips with Barry M Christmas Gold and Sally Hansen Gilded Lily. I really am getting more confident with the nail art brushes, especially for simple things like this :)
I’m really, really not happy with this one. I think the half-moon stamps work, but I should have gone for a different colour scheme, and where I used the full stamp on the ring finger, it just looks weird. Ah well, we live and we learn.
Sometimes that’s the only excuse I need though :) I mainly wanted to try out my new Barry M Crystal Glaze, and thought I’d mix and match around that. I really like how it turned out, and I ended up mattifying it a couple of days later which looked amazing, but unfortunately went unphotographed.
