Severina 3D ~ 310 and Catrice ~ Blue Cara Ciao

Severina 3D ~ 310
Lavender holo


Catrice ~ Blue Cara Ciao  
Vibrant blue crème

I couldn’t decide whether to do stripes or dots today, so I ended up doing both!

I started out with a polish that I got from sweet Anastasia from Little World of Coloured Nails. It’s Severina 3D #310. It’s a holographic polish, and it’s a mix between pale lavender and silver. The holo isn’t the strongest I’ve seen, but it’s definitely there, and the polish is also pretty when the sun doesn’t shine on it, which is a huge plus in my book!

Here’s how two very easy and fast drying coats look like – there’s no top coat on yet:

Then I cut out thin stripes of masking tape and masked my nails down the middle. I applied one coat of Catrice’s Blue Cara Ciao and removed the tape while the polish was still wet. Blue Cara Ciao is an amazingly beautiful blue; I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a vibrant blue before.

When the blue was dry, I covered up the line between the two polishes with a black striper from Claire’s, and then I dotted on the same blue polish on the holo line down the middle of my nails.

One coat of NYC Fast Drying top coat completed my mani:

And from another angle:

Here are the polishes, I used:

I love this! It’s fun and eye catching, and still relatively easy to do. The most difficult thing was actually to cut out the stripes of tape :)

What do you think? Is it cool or not cool?
