Here’s a kind of skittley mani, due to a comparison I wanted to do. It started out as LA Girl Allure with an accent nail of Black Dahlia Lacquer Fuchsia Flower, but then I switched my index nail to Orly Ablaze since I wanted to see how it compared to Allure.
Ablaze is more orange, while Allure is more coral, and of course they have different shimmer as well; Orly’s gold shimmer is larger flecks while the LA Girl’s is very fine.
Fuchsia Flower has blue glass flecks in it, which aren’t showing up very well on the nail in these pics but you can see clearly in the bottle below.
I stamped on the mani using Fingerpaints Minimalistic Mauve (over the coral/orange nails) and Picturesque Purple (over Fuchsia Flower), and plate Hehe-040.
Picture Polish Douceur is a very pretty pale pinkish-beige nude shade with scattered holo and small and medium magenta hex glitter. I used two coats plus top coat. With flash (as are the later photos with the accent nail):
Under Ott Lite:
I stamped an scaly-patterned accent nail using Finger Paints Minimalistic Mauve (which I think would have been better named minimalistic magenta) and plate Hehe-005.
Echoes Polish is a Canadian indie that makes all vegan friendly polishes and is most well-known for their thermal polishes. Today I have Now You See Me to show you. When cold, it’s a dusty sage green colour, and it has beautiful green glass flecks throughout. Shown are three coats plus topcoat.
I had a couple of helpers while swatching 🙂 – Thor:
When warm, Now You See Me changes to a taupe-beige colour, making the green glass flecks really stand out. The shade was inspired by camouflage print. Here it is in transition and fully warm:
I decided to stamp it with a wavy stripe pattern from Hehe stamping plate Hehe-029, using China Glaze Con-fused (the green magnetic). Cold state, in the shade:
Mostly warm, with flash:
Northern Star Polish released We’re Not Worthy at the end of March as part of their third anniversary trio collection (with a Wayne’s World theme which very much pleases the early 90’s 14 year old I once was!).
We’re Not Worthy has a yellow-toned beige creme base with gold shimmer flecks, holo particles, and pink and blue micro-flakies. When I first saw a swatch of this I knew I had to have it! It’s basically perfection in a bottle. 🙂 Shown in two coats plus topcoat.
I tried adding a faux-watermarble stamped accent nail using Hehe plate Hehe040. Umm, kinda missed the nail tip, oops!! I used two polishes on different areas of the stamp before scraping, Kleancolor Pink (up near the cuticle) and Kleancolor Metallic Pink. Turns out Pink doesn’t stamp as well as Metallic Pink does!
Well, I LOVE this polish even if my accent nail didn’t turn out quite as planned!
