Orly ~ Angel Eyes and China Glaze ~ Frostbite
I started out this very blue mani with two coats of China Glaze’s “Frostbite”. Frostbite is from their Ski-collection from 2007. I was so lucky to find it in a blog sale, and I was very happy to pick it up. It’s bright, in your face blue and it’s got shimmer in it too.
Application was easy; it was almost opaque after the first coat. The second coat evened out all irregularities and made it look stunningly pretty. Here’s what it looks like – without top coat:
And from a different angle:
It looks kind of matte on these pics, but it’s not. It’s bright and shiny!
Then I wanted to add glitter. I chose “Angel Eyes” from Orly’s “Naughty or Nice” collection from Christmas 2012. It’s blue microglitter with larger holo-bits of glitter in it. It is not a topper per se, it’s a “real polish”, if you know what I mean.
I let Frostbite dry completely and then I taped my nails. I painted Orly’s “Angel Eyes” on the taped nails and removed the tape immediately. And man, does that China Glaze look great over a darker blue! I was utterly impressed. Before finishing my mani, I made some stripes with Color Club’s “Blue Chrome”, which is indeed a striper polish.
I finished it all off with a layer of Poshé top coat, and here you go:
Here’s another shot:
And here are the involved polishes:
I must admit that I think that this turned out really nice! What do you think? Are you into blue polishes at all?
