Nail Crazies Unite - Chevron





 


Today, the Nail Crazies Unite challenge wants to see chevrons, so here are mine.





As base I used three coats of Crows Toes Nidavellir, a multichrome polish shifting from (in my pictures not visible) teal over blue to purple. It's not a shimmer, but a clear base filled with myriads of tiny flakies, so clean up was quite a hassle. It also has some green glitters in it.








After the base was completely dry, I added some chevron nail vinyls and one coat of Kiko 625 (Emerald) on my ring and middle finger. I removed the vinyls immediatley after polishing the nails and added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.











Crows Toes polishes are available at their own store (US only), Femme Fatale Cosmetics, Color4Nails and Harlow & Co.

Spot On Melody Malone






Today I'm going work appropriate ;-)





My base polish is Pahlish Melody Malone. I wore this one last year, and I think it slightly changed color in the months sitting in my helmer. The last time I wore it, it was cleary purple/lilac, now it's more of a light taupe, but still with clear purple undertones and pink glass fleck shimmer. I used three coats for opacity.









That's how it looked last year:




For the sublte stamping (it was a little more visible irl than it looks in the pictures) I used Essence Spot On, a dusky rose creme, and Über Chic Lovely Leaves plate. As usual, I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.










Melody Malone is no longer available, but other Pahlish polishes are available on Bigcartel and at Overall Beauty.

My base polish is Pahlish This Song Is Ending, a vivid teal with pink shimmer particles. I used three coats for opacity.








For the stamping I used Kiko Mirror Lacquer 625 (Emerald) and MoYou London Asia Collection 09. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top finished this mani.















This Song Is Ending is no longer available, but other Pahlish polishes are available on Bigcartel and at Overall Beauty.

Lacke in Farbe und bunt - anthrazit






Lacke in Farbe und bunt is a weekly nail polish challenge by Lenas Sofa and Das Jahreszeitenhaus. Each week they have a new color scheme, and this week's color is anthracite.





My anthracite polish (ok, I admit, it's so dark, it's almost black) is P2 Classy, a very dark grey textured polish with small silver glitters in it. I used three coats for opacity.








For the stamping I used Barry M. Silver Foil and the DRK-D plate. No topcoat, obviously, the keet the textured finish.

Beyond Central Station





After a lot of blue, green and teal manis, I felt like something more neutral...





My base color is ILNP Central Station, a grey-ish taupe jelly with scattered holo particles. I used three coats of opacity.





For the stamping (yes, there is a stamping, it's just so subtle, it's nearly invisible) I used Color Club Beyond and Über Chic plate 1-03. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top finished this mani.







ILNP polishes are available on Etsy, Hypnotic Polish, Harlow & Co. and at their own shop.
