So, this mani started out with a polish I received a while ago in a swap with my friend Anastasia, from Little World of Coloured Nails. It’s an Eva Mosaic Fashion Colour and it’s got number 062. It applies easily, and the glitter spreads out like a dream. Drying time is good, and the glitter dries up completely flat on the nails. So all the right boxes are ticked. It smells a little bit odd, but not so much that it actually bothered me. I used two coats. If this had been a polish I’d wear on its own, I would have used three. But I hardly ever wear one polish on its own, haha!

Here’s a picture of what two coats and no topcoat looks like. The picture is taken in the evening sunshine:



Then I did something I’ve been meaning to do for a while. I took a striper and applied stripes on approximately 2 thirds of the nail. I used a new Cuccio polish I bought called “Brooklyn Never Sleeps”. It’s a deep purple that shimmers so beautifully in the bootle.

I was pleased with the result of my stripes. Take a look:


Isn’t that just cool? I really like it; it turned out exactly as I wanted it to, yay!!
Then I did the same thing with Funky Fingers’ “Sand and Stilettos”: I made lots of stripes on the bottom third of the nail. When it was dry I sealed my mani up with a layer of BK topcoat, and here’s what it ended up looking like:


And the sun decided to peek out from behind a cloud one last time before it went down completely. I took a quick picture:


I’m so glad that this mani turned out like I wanted it! I’m definitely going to do this again with other colours and finishes!

Do you like it??
