Girly Bits ~ Crantini & Star Spangled



Girly Bits ~ Crantini & Star Spangled
Magenta linear holo & Deep blue jelly with blue and red microglitter

I started out with Crantini, which is described as cranberry coloured. The application was really easy and it took two coats to make it opaque. Drying time is good, no worries there.

Here’s what it looks like; two coats and no topcoat. The pic is taken with flash:


Isn’t this just a lovely colour?


Here’s what it looks like outside. The sun wasn’t out, so this is just ordinary daylight:


When it was dry I taped my nails diagonally and painted the tips with Star Spangled. I made a row of dots with Star Spangled too, to make it all come together. I finished it all with a layer of topcoat.

Here’s my final mani:


I think these two colours go really well together!


Here’s a lightbox picture:


Yes – this is how I wanted it. I love it when that happens!
Star Spangled is now discontinued and no longer available.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Linear holo / Microglitter
Overall impression: Polishes thumbs up for both these pretties!
Buy again: Yes

  2. I like the shade in ordinary light. It's kind of funny and positive with the nail art.
