Essence Gorgeous Bling Bling, two coats. Burnt orange-brown creme with gold flakes. Back when my nails were long…
Grey-t To Be Here, three coats. Light grey creme with pink shimmer flecks.
I’ve been tempted by these Nicole by OPI “Roughles” textured polishes that came out this spring, but didn’t want to spend full price on them (10.99 each here in Canada!). Since they seem to be starting to disappear from some of the drugstores without being put on clearance I decided to try my hand at frankening something similar.
Here are the ingredients I used to try to dupe the yellow one, Sand in My Shoe: mostly Color Club Coastline (white texture) with Jordana Yellow Madness (yellow texture) added, along with one drop of the green China Glaze In The Rough and three drops of the orange Toe-tally Textured, and one small scoop of tiny coral-pink matte glitter.
I think maybe it could use a touch more of the matte coral-pink glitter, but overall I’m pretty happy with it! :D
Sorry for the lack of posts! I haven’t been swatching/photographing lately but I still have plenty of photos I never posted so I think I should start posting them even if I don’t have tons of time to do elaborate write-ups or anything!
This is Indigo Bananas Endless Nights, a plum/burgundy duochrome holo with strong blue/pink duochrome. I can’t remember if this was two or three coats.
Under Ott lite:
One coat over black:
Haven’t had much time to edit photos and posts lately… How about another green?
This is a manicure I did a couple weeks ago using the glow-in-the-dark OPI Zom-body to Love, which was released for Halloween 2011, and LA Girl Glitter Addict in Synergy sandwiched on the accent nail.
Three coats of the OPI (which dries super fast due to all the glow-in-the-dark pigment, by the way), and the LA Girl glitter is sandwiched between coats two and three on my ring finger. Plus top coat, as the glow-in-the-dark also dries quite matte and slightly gritty.
