Colour Alike ~ 516

Colour Alike ~ 516
Deep magenta scattered holo

Today’s polish is magenta; I really like magenta on my nails.

The formula is good, and this is a one coater. I applied a second coat to see if it made a difference but it didn’t. Drying time is good.

Here’s two coats taken with flash:

Here’s the same thing taken without flash. It’s a really nice colour.

I decided to try some of my bigger chevron nail vinyls. Smaller chevrons work much better on my relatively small nails, but I decided to give the bigger ones a go anyway. I used another Colour Alike for the job, namely “Red Moon”, a lovely burgundy metallic that I’ve used for nail art before. I made two dots on the other nails, applied a layer of El Corazón’s topcoat No. 421h/25 et voilá, my mani was done.

The topcoat from El Corazón is really cool. It has got little holographic flakes in it and can spice up pretty much any mani.

Here are the three polishes I used:

Great polishes all of them. I’m a fan!

Number of coats: 2 (but 1 would have been enough)

  1. I love my Colour Alike's and I have a good few of them! I don't think I've got this one though!

  2. Lovely mani, I know both of these nail polishes.

    1. I was almost sure that you knew them :)

  3. Gorgeous mani! Really would love to try that brand one time :-)

  4. Colour Alike polishes are so awesome. Love the combination you made!
