Painted Polish ~ V-Necks & Vinyl



Painted Polish ~ V-Necks & Vinyl
Fuchsia linear holo with silver holo glitter

Today is going to be really simple because that’s what I felt like.

I applied two easy coats of V-Necks & Vinyl and let it dry. The formula was good and so was the drying time. I topped it with a layer of topcoat.

Here’s what that looks like. It’s two coats and one layer of topcoat taken with flash.


I love the rainbows!


Here’s a daylight shot. No flash or sun. The glitters make this polish special in my opinion.


I didn’t do anything with it. No nail art nor nuffink. I just wore it like this. I enjoyed it too :D

V-Necks & Vinyl is a limited edition polish.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Linear holo with glitter
Overall impression: Nice colour, great rainbows and glitter
Buy again: Yes

CND Creative Play ~ Orange You Curious



CND Creative Play ~ Orange You Curious
Orange shimmer

I love a good orange polish! What does it take for an orange to be good? To me it needs to be clear and bright and non-Autumn-y.

I used two easy coats for my manicure. The drying time was rather slow.

I added a couple of flower studs to the base of my nails. I stuck them in a layer of topcoat.

Here’s my final manicure including a layer of topcoat.

 
And this is what the polish looks like on its own. It’s two coats and no topcoat on this picture.


Here are the things I used. I don’t use these studs very often because shapes and colours are mixed in the container and it’s such a hassle to get them sorted out.


I like this orange a lot.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Slow
Finish: Shimmer
Overall impression: Great colour and quality, not impressed with the drying time

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel ~ 710 Beatnik



Sally Hansen Miracle Gel ~ 710 Beatnik
Medium blue crème

I bought a bunch of Sally Hansen polishes on special recently. Beatnik was one of them :)

I used two easy coats for my manicure and the drying time was good. The polish is from the Miracle Gel collection but it doesn’t dry up gel-like at all; having said that, there’s nothing that a layer of topcoat can’t fix.

I used a couple of water decals of Snoopy and Sally Brown, and made dots with white and pink on the other nails. I topped the whole thing with a thick layer of topcoat and then my manicure was done.

This is what it looks like:


I love the mix of blue, pink and white here, and Snoopy is always a hit here!


These are the polishes I used.

Sally Hansen: Beatnik, OPI: Angel with a Leadfoot, El Corazón stamping polish: Pink Neon

I love this!


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Pretty good
Finish: Crème
Overall impression: Great basic polish
