Sinful, Revlon and Wycon in a dry marble manicure

Sinful, Revlon and Wycon in a dry marble manicure
Magenta, purple and silver holo glitter

Today’s manicure is an attempt to practice my dry marble skills. I would also like to water marble more, but the big advantage of dry marble is that you can use glitter as well; and I love glitter!

I used these three polishes:

Sinful Colors: Real Regal, which is a beautiful magenta shimmer
Revlon: Showtime, a dark shimmery purple
Wycon: #25, a mix of silver and holo glitter in various sizes

I ended up with this manicure:

I really like these colours together. Plus I was very careful when I cut the polish to fit the nails, in order to make clean up easier. That worked quite well today!

This is how the dry marble looked before I cut it into nail sized bits and attached it to my nails.

Here are the three pretty sisters I used. I love all three of them!

I think this turned out really well – I am so pleased with the result. I hope you like it too! :)

Painted Polish ~ V-Necks & Vinyl

Painted Polish ~ V-Necks & Vinyl
Fuchsia linear holo with silver holo glitter

Today is going to be really simple because that’s what I felt like.

I applied two easy coats of V-Necks & Vinyl and let it dry. The formula was good and so was the drying time. I topped it with a layer of topcoat.

Here’s what that looks like. It’s two coats and one layer of topcoat taken with flash.

I love the rainbows!

Here’s a daylight shot. No flash or sun. The glitters make this polish special in my opinion.

I didn’t do anything with it. No nail art nor nuffink. I just wore it like this. I enjoyed it too :D

V-Necks & Vinyl is a limited edition polish.

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Linear holo with glitter
Overall impression: Nice colour, great rainbows and glitter
Buy again: Yes

CND Creative Play ~ Orange You Curious

CND Creative Play ~ Orange You Curious
Orange shimmer

I love a good orange polish! What does it take for an orange to be good? To me it needs to be clear and bright and non-Autumn-y.

I used two easy coats for my manicure. The drying time was rather slow.

I added a couple of flower studs to the base of my nails. I stuck them in a layer of topcoat.

Here’s my final manicure including a layer of topcoat.

And this is what the polish looks like on its own. It’s two coats and no topcoat on this picture.

Here are the things I used. I don’t use these studs very often because shapes and colours are mixed in the container and it’s such a hassle to get them sorted out.

I like this orange a lot.

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Slow
Finish: Shimmer
Overall impression: Great colour and quality, not impressed with the drying time
