52 Week Challenge - Patchwork / Bright and Happy







For this week's challenge mani I decided to stick with just one of the themes: bright and happy.





I started with a white base (Essie Blanc) and used Catrice Earnie & Birdie (yellow), Catrice Virgin Forest (green), Essie Size Matters (red) and Essie Hide & Go Chic (blue) for a dry brush mani. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top finished this mani.

Blue Monday





When I applied this polish called Blue Monday, I just knew I had to show you this one on a monday...





Blue Monday has a cerulean blue jelly base filled with white hexes and squares, blue hexes and tiny silver holo sparkles. I used three coats and added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top. As you might guess from my pictures, the surface wasn't completely smooth, so a second layer of topcoat wouldn't have hurt.











Gloss n' Sparkle polishes are available at their own store (Australia only), at Femme Fatale Cosmetics and at Edgy Polish. Blue Monday is an older shade and has been discontinued.

Where The Wild Things Are





Where The Wild Things Are is the name of today's polish, and it's by the swiss indie brand Cadillacquer.





Where The Wild Things Are has a slightly blue toned jelly base filled with golden shimmer, plus silver holographic and iridescent hex and square glitters. I used three coats and finished with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.










Where The Wild Things Are is no longer available, but a lot of other Cadillacquer polishes are available at Hypnotic Polish, at Llarowe and at Harlow & Co. The Bigcartel shop seems to be closed, but if you live in Switzerland you can also order the polishes directly from Madeleine (Miss Cadillacquer herself) via Email on her Blog.

Peace (H)




Today I want to show you another of my ILNP Ultrachromes, the holo version of Peace.





"Depending on the light and angle of your fingertips, Peace (H) will magically shift through vivid hues of blue, purple, fuchsia, pink, and even a subtle coppery gold.

The vibrancy of Peace (H) is something you have to see in person to believe! This polish is so beautifully perfect, it’s almost guaranteed to be a distraction to you and the people around you. Oh well! :)"
(Source: ILNP)






For the stamping I used aEngland Camelot and Pueen plate 83. As always, I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.










An this is how this mani looked like on day 8 (yes, eight). Sorry for the crappy cell phone picture, but I guess you'll see what I mean...





ILoveNailpolish are available on Etsy and at their own shop.

Shimmer Me Timbers





Shimmer Me Timbers is the name of today's polish by Jindie Nails.


 

Shimmer Me Timbers has a very sheer green jelly base with green flakie shimmer and glitters in all colors and forms, blue, purple, brown, green, gold, black, hexes, dots, squares. I used three coats and as you can see, the jelly base is nowhere near opaque. For an opaque look, I'd recommend layering it over a creme base. Shimmer Me Timbers dried very gritty, so I added one coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food and one coat of KBShimemr Clearly On Top for a smooth finish.













Jindie Nails polishes are available at their own store, at Rainbow Connection, Norway Nails, MeiMei's Signatures, Femme Fatale and at Harlow&Co.

Bring On The Night







Today I want to show you another one of my Cadillacquer polishes: Bring On The Night.





Bring On The Night has a black jellly base with emerald green squares and microglitter, plus some subtle magenta shimmer particles. I used three coats and added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top for extra shine.
















Bring On The Night is no longer available, but a lot of other Cadillacquer polishes are available at Hypnotic Polish, at Llarowe and at Harlow & Co. The Bigcartel shop seems to be closed, but if you live in Switzerland you can also order the polishes directly from Madeleine (Miss Cadillacquer herself) via Email on her Blog.
