Today I wanted to do something really fun. I was going for a night sky look, and I think I achieved it. I started out with Wet n Wild Black. This is truly the best black to use for layering. It's super cheap and readily available at drugstores. My base coat is Essie 'Feed Me' and then a coat of Barielle's Camo. There is no top coat on this, and look how shiny it is!!!!
I took these pictures indoor. Not my favorite way to take pictures, but I work full time during the week and it is always dark by the time I get home. Darn winter *Shakes fist at Winter* lol!
The next picture makes me giggle. It looks like I have hair, and other foreign things stuck to my nails, but it's really just the glare off the awesome Shine (and remember this is without a top coat)!
I love how easily this applies and how smooth and shiny it is. This is the perfect black in my book. It is opaque in one thick coat or two thin coats (which is what I have done).
I then topped it off with Models Own Mixed Up. Though the Mixed up looks like it's in an opaque black base, it is not. This needs to be topped on another color. You definitely have to wear underwear with this. So far I have only tested it on black.
I took these pictures outside once I topped it with the Mixed Up. Since it fell on a weekend I got daylight :) I wonder if I'm the only one that goes outside in the cold with a big baggy coat on to take pictures of my hands lol! I'm greatful I live in the country and my neighbors can not see me running around my deck snapping 100 pictures of my hand holding a nail polish bottle.
This came out sooooo Sparkly. I tried my best to capture this with my photos, but IRL they are amazing!!!
It has gorgeous Holo glitter that flashes so many colors (Silver, Green, Blue, Red etc). It looks like a night sky and has an awesome twinkling star effect.
I am very very very pale. Ghostly White to be honest lol. You can see that my fingers are a little red here as it was getting REALLY cold outside. My hands were freezing LOL! I do not Photo Shop my pictures. I only use Picasa 3 to crop, straighten and sometimes do auto contrast. I usually just straighten and crop as I'm too lazy to do much of anything else - ha. I also add titles when needed.
I also topped this with a coat of Barielle's Manicure Extender, and it has been shining ever since (I did the Black Mani on Friday and then topped it with Mixed up and Manicure Extender on Saturday and took pictures)
Thanks so much for visiting!
