Attitude ~ Scarlett Mistress

Attitude ~ Scarlett Mistress
Bright red micro glitter in a clear base

Attitude. You just gotta love a nail polish brand with a name like that.

This is one of five I bought – and there is a specific reason that I’m wearing the red glittery one today. I’m going to the movies tonight - and I wanted my nails to fit the movie, so to speak. I’m watching “My week with Marilyn”, and I’m looking very much forward to it. Red glitter seems appropriate, don’t you think?

The formula was quite thick, but very easy to apply. The brush is medium sized and sort of flat, which makes the application smooth. I could have gone with two coats – it was opaque at that point and there was no visible nail line, but I gave it three coats anyway. I think Marilyn deserves that my nails look their best. :D

Three coats, no top coat yet:

Red glitter is not enough by itself, though. I already had stamping in mind. I used two different Bundlemonster plates: BM02 and BM09. I stamped a different design on each nail, but I made the two hands alike. I used Konad’s white stamping polish, and topped it with Poshé’s top coat, which is my number one top coat. It doesn’t pull on the designs. :)

Here’s what it ended up looking like:

There’s a lot of love and kisses going on. :D I think this manicure is perfect for a night out with Marilyn Monroe.
