Alanna Renee ~ Sugar & Spice & All Things Nice



Alanna Renee ~ Sugar & Spice & All Things Nice
A mix of pink and purple holo hex glitter and holo particles

Let me show you another Alanna Renee polish. I showed you “Snips &Snails & Puppy Dog Tails” the other day, and today it’s “Sugar & Spice & All Things Nice” which I’m going to show off. I think the names are a bit long, but seriously, I love them! Sugar & Spice & All Things Nice is a mix of pink and purple holographic hexagons and glitters, mixed with holographic particles. It sounds like my kind of polish, doesn’t it.

I chose another Golden Rose Matte Velvet as underwear for this pretty glitter, namely #107, which is purple with shimmer. A beauty, which is well pigmented and dries really fast. I’ll show you what it looks like at the end of this post.

I placed some striping tape on my nails before I applied the glitter. I pulled it off again right after application, and while the glitter was still wet. On these first pictures it isn’t really visible what effect that had, because these first pictures are taken in full sunshine. There’s a layer of topcoat over, btw.

Take a look at how pretty it is:


On this next picture you can almost see the stripes. Check the middle nail, that is the one it shows the most on.


I really like the look of this glitter!


Here’s a blurry pic to let the holo glitter show off!


This picture is taken in daylight, but out of the sun. That shows the stripes really well, and I love that I made that detail!


I promised you to show you the Golden Rose Matte Velvet I used as underwear. The entire collection is great as base for other stuff. They’re pretty much all one coaters and dry really fast. If I had worn this #107 alone, I would have applied two coats, but this dear ladies, is just one coat:


I’m happy with this. Would you also have been happy, if you were me?

  5. Not really a fan of that glitter when just looking at it in the bottle, but I do love it when it's over that purple!
