Companion post to yesterday’s, on my other hand I did the opposite version of the mani – Indigo Bananas Blue Rose with a needle marbled accent using Cherry Pie. Thermal polishes with colour shifting “unicorn pee” pigment. Two coats except on the accent nail. Again, probably should have used three coats since there are some bald spots visible in the warm state… Pics in various different lighting (and temperature)!

Someone on Makeup Alley’s nail board was asking about dupes for Zoya Natalie so I did some comparisons. First, here’s Natalie.
Here are the bottles I compared:
OPI Ginger Bells, Zoya Natalie, Kleancolor Brown, SpaRitual Clay.
SpaRitual Quartz, Zoya Natalie, Joe Fresh Terracotta, OPI Schnapps Out of It.

No exact dupes but some similarities here!
I recently got a few soak off gel polishes from Madam Glam, including some magnetic gels! This is Always Together. They recommend using these over a black base, but I decided to do three coats alone. I used their magnet on each coat to get the gold magnetic stripe effect.
The pink sparkles have a golden duochrome effect:
On my thumb I alternated Always Together with another of their similar magnetics, Viva Drama, which has blue-to-purple sparkles (so this is four coats total, two of each polish).
I used Madam Glam’s peel off base coat under these. It works well, but I haven’t been able to get it to work for me, in the sense that I always get bubbling under it so far! It doesn’t show here since the sparkles camouflage it… Not sure yet what the issue is!
