Colors by Llarowe ~ Smooth Criminal



Colors by Llarowe ~ Smooth Criminal
Purple linear holo

It’s a purple day today! I dug out Smooth Criminal from the infamous box of untrieds and decided that today is its day to shine! The sun is shining, you see, and my holos love sunshine to show off!

The formula of this blueish purple is really good. No special aqua basecoat is needed, any basecoat will do, and the polish just glides on. Two coats is what it takes and the drying time between the coats is fast.

Let me take this beauty out in the sun and let it shine for you. Two coats, no topcoat:


I love those rainbows, they’re amazing!!


Here’s a lightbox picture. The rainbows still want to play!


I stamped on it. Surprise!! I found a motif on Moyou London’s stamping plate Pro collection XL-01 and I stamped with a Chinese copy of Suzy Skis in the Pyrenees. I topped it all up with Poshé topcoat, and here’s my final mani in the sun:


And a flash picture for you:


And finally a picture taken in the lightbox:


Purple on purple. Shimmer on holo. There’s nothing I don’t like about this mani! How about you? Feel free to comment below! :)

    9. Maybe you will learn never to be cruel to polishes again and deny them their polish rights...
      OK, I get it, no matter what I'm not able to lure them from you *sob* *sob*, but I had fun trying :D
