Spoiled by Wet n Wild ~ Distant Memory - with Funky Fingers stripes

Green with subtle blue shimmer

Striped with

Funky Fingers  ~ Baby baby baby  
Clear base packed with light teal and holographic glitter


I started out with two easy coats of Spoiled “Distant Memory”. The brush is quite wide but manageable, and the formula of the polish wasn’t as thick as on the other Spoiled polishes I’ve tried. It almost covered in one coat, but I had a few thin spots, so I decided to give it two coats.

It dried up to a semi-matte, almost velvety surface. I’m not really into matte polishes (plus, the top coat always glosses them over), but I do love this finish!


Here’s a pic from another angle. There isn’t any top coat involved just yet.


Then I went a long way around to achieve some stripes. I masked half my nail with masking tape and painted half my nails with “Baby baby baby” from Funky Fingers. I love the glitters, which Funky Fingers make – they’re all really pretty.

Then I painted one stripe of glitter on the green part of the nail, and one stripe of green colour on the glitter part of the nail, and here’s what I ended up with. It’s sealed with one coat of Seche Vite top coat.


I think this is pretty, but it wasn’t the look I was after. What I really wanted was a green half with a glitter stripe and a green half with a silver stripe. I guess I have to paint the stripe on very thin to achieve that look. Or alternatively: My nails aren’t wide enough. You pick! ;)

Either way – I’m keeping my stripy nails for now. :)
