If there was any holiday more appropriate for this, I don’t know what it is.
However, I’ve opted for the beautifully muted Color Club “Sheer Disguise” blue. Top Coat of Essie Luxe Effects “Shine of The Times” (THANK YOU Liza! I am in LOVE with this top coat!! it’s like an iridescent flake-filled jelly = fun!)
My nails reflect the kind of celebrating I plan on doing this evening to bring in this new year: Calmly chilling with a nice sparkle.
My nails wanted to make a statement. Wanted to be “heard”.
So I pulled out bold and bright primary & a couple secondary colors in the loudest temperature I owned. And let them scream.
For some odd reason the blue base in the purple is so strong it’s difficult to differentiate it from the blue in the pictures. If I can get a clear picture to show PURPLE instead of blue, I will post asap!
Felt like a princess with a little crown after this manicure.
Maybe my expectations are too high now because I am not at all enamored with the formulation of this polish. It’s a pretty color, but it’s thin, and slightly streaky. You will most definitely have to use a minimum of two coats for any remote coverage and opacity. I will still use it again… because like I said, it’s a pretty color. Plus, I feel like a beautiful girl with it on.
I loved the Christmas polish adventures…. but being happy that it’s over, I don’t really want to see anymore red and green polish for at least a couple of weeks!!
so I ventured as far away from Christmas as I could when I painted my nails this time.
…but just some little freehand dotted flowers.
China Glaze “White On White” – acrylic paint dot flowers
As many others have reviewed “White On White”…. they are all right. It’s a very pretty and creamy white polish…. once you get enough coats of polish on. It’s a streaky polish, but I only had to use 2 coats to achieve these results. I had initially planned on purchasing OPI Alpine Snow… and actually, next time I will. #NoDiss
Cutest. design. ever. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to try it.
So, I used my favorite… OPI “I’m Not Really A Waitress”… striped OPI “Black Onyx” across and made a “Glitter Hologram” buckle….
Voila! Santa’s belt.
I absolutely love this design. So fun! Really may work for any time of the year – if you’re a diva…. it’s all in the context. Because it’s almost December 25th, we’ll just say this is holiday nail art.
