Flormar Wild Nails ~ CW102
Green with a metallic finish
I got a bunch of new Flormars last time I swapped with sweet Aylin from Posh Nail Art, and this Flormar Wild Nails is one of them. It’s a lovely green, and I was very interested to see if it was just as good a polish as my other Flormars.
It turned out that it was. Application was easy, although I got a few visible brush strokes. It was opaque in one coat, which I love. I gave it two anyway, to see if it made a difference. It made a slight difference: The brush strokes became less visible, and the polish seemed more even, if that makes any sense.
Here’s a pic of two coats, no top coat:
I have seen something on other blogs that I wanted to copy. It turned out that I hadn’t figured out what those girls really did. I wanted to make some dots on my nails, and then pull a need through the dots and create a line of hearts. What I didn’t know was that the base polish is supposed to be still wet. Mine was dry… I made three dots with a dark green polish from Ulta called “Envy”, and pulled a needle through the dots a couple of times. It didn’t look like hearts at all. In fact, it looks like three dots connected by a thin line – take a look: :/
Hmmfr! Not what I was looking for at all! I did what I always do when I fail a mani: I reached out for glitter! :D I applied a coat of Rival de Loop “Silver Glam” from their Glam Rock collection, and here’s what it ended up looking like:
I like all three polishes, but what ruins it for me is the fact that the dots didn’t react like I expected them to. I guess that I have to make the dots while the base colour is still wet and then pull the needle through it before it dries. At least that is what I’m going to try next time!
Here is a pic of the polishes I used:
Have you tried the needle marbling technique yourself? Did it work? Have you got any tips for me, so I’ll do better next time?
