Blue Addicted

Today's polish is Essence Blue Addicted.

Blue Addicted has a dark blue jelly base with aqua and green hex glitters and blue microglitter. My bottle is quite old, they haven't used this design for years now, so the three coats I used dried quite gritty and the polis was somewhat gloopy (You can see in the bottle shot, that about one third of the poish is gone, but I've only used it once. A lot of it must have evaporated over the years). I can't promise it, but I guess a newer bottle might be smoother. I added two coats of KBShimmer Clearly On Top provided a smooth finish.

Nail Crazies Unite: Delicate Print

Delicate Print is this week's challenge theme. If you've been reading my blog for some time now, you might know that I really like delicate stampings, so this prompt felt like a home game ;-)

My base color is Cadillacquer She's One Of A Kind, a light blue polish with a strong copper shimmer. I used three thin coats for opacity.

For the stamping I used aEngland Tristam and MoYou London Suki Collection plate 07. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top finished this mani.

Cadillacquer polishes are available at Hypnotic Polish and at Harlow & Co. If you live in Switzerland you can also order the polishes directly from Madeleine (Miss Cadillacquer herself) via Email on her Blog.

aEngland polishes are available at various places, you'll find a complete list of retailers here.

I Got Distracted

I Got Distracted by Cult Nails is today's polish.

I Got Distracted has a black jelly base filled with silver holographic microglitters and small green hex glitters. I used three coats for opacity. I Got Distracted doesn't dry really gritty, but it "drinks" topcoat like a camel drinks water after a ten day hike through the desert. I added two coats of KBShimmer Clearly On Top, but after both coats the polish felt kind of textures, as soon as the topcoat was completely dry. So after two coats I gave up and just lived with the textured surface...

Laugh Myself Lily

KBShimmer's Laugh Myself Lily is today's polish.

Laugh Myself Lily has an aqua jelly base filled with silver holographic microglitter and lots of hex and dot glitters in various colors. With the three coats I used the polish wasn't completely opaque, but wearable. Laugh Myself Lily dried a little gritty, so I added two coats of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

Laugh Myself Lily is discontintued, but other KBShimmer polishes are sold on their website (US only) and at Harlow & Co.

26 Great Nail Art Ideas: Yellow and 1 bold color

Yellow and one bold color are askey by this week's 26 Great Nail Art Ideas. Well, yellow already is a bold color, so it's actually two bold colors ;-)

I decided to combine yellow with red and used MoYou London Sweet Custard and Autumn Harvest plus MoYou London Kaleidoscope Collection plate 04 for this mani. I added ove coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top to protect the stamping and give the mani some extra shine.

Steeling Diamonds

Today I want to show you Emily de Molly's Steeling Diamonds.

Steeling Diamonds has a light grey jelly base with strong blue undertones. The polish is filled with white, aqua and charcoal hex glitters and silver holographic diamonds. I used three coats for opacity and added two coats of KBShimmer Clearly On Top, since Steeling Diamonds dried a little gritty.

Emily de Molly polishes are available on Etsy and at their own shop (Australia only) and at a lot of international stockists. Sadly, Steeling Diamonds seems to be discontinued, I couldn't find it in the shops anymore.
