Music Challenge 6: Smoke on the Water (Deep Purple) – take 2
This is my second take on the challenge of letting myself being inspired by the song “Smoke on the Water” by Deep Purple. You can see yesterday’s take by clicking here!
Today I’m going to do the exact same mani, just with different polishes than yesterday. I started out with two coats of Gosh “Holographic Hero”, which is a strong linear holographic silver. It’s the first time I’ve tried it on, and I’m well impressed.
Here it is, without topcoat:
It was nice’n easy to apply. I used Gosh’ Fix base coat as underwear, and the two coats I used glided on easily without problems at all. This polish dries really fast. When I had done the last nail, the first one was already dry and ready for coat number two. I like that!
I love the rainbows on my nails. I’m not crazy about it in low light, where it just looks like a silver polish, but I can live with it because of all the rainbows I get to see in a good light :)
And now for the “smoke”. I used Magnetic’s “Shimmering Titanium”, which isn’t a magnetic polish, but a shattered black holo. I got it in a swatch with my sweet friend Kvacka from Rainbows and Blues.
I used the same technique as yesterday. I dabbed the black polish on the tips of my nails and dragged the polish upwards with a needle.
Here’s the result. Smoke on the water:
These pictures are all taken in artificial lights, as I haven’t seen any sights of the sun recently. *pouts* There’s no topcoat involved either.
What do you think? Is this an OK take on the challenge? Is it better than yesterday's take, or do you like that one better?
