SMYTC Challenge Day 5: Reindeer
Okay, I’ve seen quite a lot of cute reindeer nails recently, but I’m not sure my freehand skills are good enough to master any of them, so I decided to take a different road.
I started out with a polish I got in a swap with sweet Anastasia from Little World of Coloured Nails. It’s Pupa #136, a lovely deep burgundy with shimmer. It turned out to be a one coater! The formula is fantastic, the polish was almost self-applying. I need to write more Pupa polishes on my wish list!
Here is what one coat of Pupa #136 looks like, without top coat:
It leans more towards purple on the nails, which is an amusing colour shift. It’s very pretty, so I don’t mind that it doesn’t turn out to be the same colour as it looks like in the bottle.
First I did some layering, using some of my untrieds. On my pinkie I applied a layer of Nubar’s White Polka Dot. I’ve used that before, but it was a long time ago. On my middle finger I applied one coat of Eva Fashion Colour, it’s either called Mosaic or #061; I’m not quite sure. It’s a lovely blue/purple duochrome, and I also got that from the swap with Anastasia. On my index finger I applied one coat of Sephora’s flakie “Purple Jewelry”.
I decided to stamp on a reindeer on my ring finger. I used XL stamping plate H and a white no name stamping polish.
I sealed it all up with a layer of top coat:
The stars on my middle finger are from the same XL stamping plate:
So there’s my reindeer. Perhaps I feel skilful enough to draw one of my own next year :D
Here’s the mandatory bottle shot:
