Depend ~ #576


Depend ~ #576
Blue shimmer with a touch of pink shimmer in it

Today’s polish is from the collection Depend made to celebrate their 25th anniversary.

The formula is a bit sheer so I think it’ll take three coats to make it opaque on its own. I decided to layer it over a lovely blue from Sally Hansen: “Beatnik”.

I used it as a base for nail vinyl art: Gradient hearts. I used two Essie polishes for the gradient: “Venture to the Venue” and “City Slicker”.

I didn’t topcoat it because I liked the grittiness over the shimmer, take a look.

Isn’t it pretty?

This is one coat of Depend’s #576 over Sally Hansen’s “Beatnik” plus a layer of topcoat.

Here are the polishes I used today.


I couldn’t catch the pink shimmer on the camera, so you just got to take my word for it. It’s a beautiful blue shimmer, I really like it.

Cupcake Polish ~ Some Berry To Love


Cupcake Polish ~ Some Berry To Love
Dark pink linear holo

“Some Berry To Love” is from the The Berry Patch Summer 2015 Collection. It’s a gorgeous pink strong linear holographic.

The formula is really good and the polish covers so well that you can get away with one single coat. I used two coats though and the drying time is really good.

The stamp is from Moyra’s stamping plate “53-Textures” and I stamped with a dark purple shimmery stamping polish from El Corazón called “Restless Night”.

Here’s the final manicure including a layer of topcoat. The picture is taken with flash to show off the lovely rainbows.

Catrice ~ If Not Purple… Then What?


Catrice ~ If Not Purple… Then What?
Purple shimmer

Today’s polish is a lovely purple with a gorgeous shimmer. The formula is really good and the polish covers well. I used two easy coats for full opacity and the drying time is good.

I applied extra shimmer over it before I stamped on it. The shimmer is also from Catrice and is called “Offshore Beauty” and if from the line of “Shake and Seal topcoat”-polishes.

The stamp is from the stamping plate “ZJOY-048” and I stamped with El Corazón’s stamping polish “Sweet Symphony”.

Here’s the final result in the sun:

And here’s “If Not Purple… Then What?” alone; two coats and no topcoat.
