Anny ~ Sexy Nails, Get your Kicks and Manhattan 67V

Anny ~ Sexy Nails, Get your Kicks and Manhattan 67V
A stripycure

I did my nails while watching something on Youtube, so I completely forgot to take step by step pictures, so today you’ll have to do without. I hope you’ll survive that.

I might as well show you the final mani right now:

The base colour is the polish I’m holding in my hand: It’s Manhattan’s #67V, a deep purplish red with shimmer that covers perfectly in two coats.
The stripes are first an ordinary white crème – in this case Savina’s Fantasy Files.
On top of that I made another stripe with a pink textured glitter: Anny’s Get Your Kicks.
I finished the whole thing off with a layer of a lovely pink/iridescent shimmer from Anny: Sexy Nails. I love that name, haha!

Here is a low light picture so you can see the iridescence in the topper. Uh, I love that!

Here are the polishes I used for my mani.

The shimmer topper somehow made the purplish red look a bit brown, which disappointed me a bit. Next time I use that lovely topper, I’m going to test it on a nail wheel first, just to be sure that I get the wanted effect.

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Shimmer (etc.)
Overall impression: Manhattan makes good and cheap polishes. The Anny topper is a gem. My boyfriend gave it to me last time we were in Germany, Yay!
Buy again: Yes to all of them
