Accessorize ~ Lolite
Metallic silver with a purple tone
Isadora ~ Black Galaxy
Black with holographic glitter
Today I have another one of my tape manis for you. I started out with a polish which I got in a blog sale, namely Lolite from Accessorize. It’s a metallic silver, but with a purple/mauve-ish undertone. It says on the cap “Metalized – One coat”, and that is actually true. It is indeed a one coater, and an easy one to work with too! Drying time is good. The only downside is that it reveals every imperfection on your nails, but nothing that a good base coat can’t fix :)
Here’s one coat, no top coat:
You should be able to see the mauve undertone on that pic!
I waited until I was absolutely sure that my nails were dry before I taped them diagonally across and painted the “bare bit of nail” with Isadora’s Black Galaxy. It only took one coat to make it look good. I love black polishes with a little extra added to them, and the holographic glitter does wonder for this black.
I striped the line between the two polishes with a silver glitter striper from Flexbrush. Apparently it hasn’t got an actual name or number. Then I topped it all with two coats of BK top coat, and my mani was done:
Here are the pretty polishes lined up:
This is a design that I really like. It’s simple and looks so different depending on the colours you use. I think this black and silver grey look is totally awesome – but what do you think? Are you also into tape manis?
