A Box, Indied - Ho Ho Ho (HO3)





The next polish of the december "A Box, Indied" is Different Dimension HO3 (or Ho Ho Ho).





HO3 is a vivid red holo. Depending on the light, it looks almost raspberry, the warmer the light, the less blue toned the polish. I used three coats for opacity.




For this "christmas wrapping paper design" I used Barry M. Gold Foil on MoYou London Festive Collection plate 01. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top finished this mani.














Different Dimension polishes can be found on Etsy, at Mei Mei's Signatures or at Llarowe. HO3 is exclusive to the december "A Box, Indied". The box with five polishes is available at Llarowe as a one month only box or as subscription (50$ per box).

52 Week Challenge - Crinkly Tape / Glitter Topper








This week the two 52 Week Challenge mottos are crinkly tape and glitter topper.

 


I started with Essie Take It Outside (Dress To Kilt Collection), a greige creme with very slight purple undertones. I had no issues with application, the pictures show two coats.




For the finished design I added a zig zag design using chevron Nail Vinyls and OPI I São Paulo Over There (Brazil Collection), a taupe creme with purple undertones. The glitter topper I dabbed over the "Essie stripe" is ILNP Her Highness. "Made with the perfect combination of fuchsia, brown, and gold glitters, Her Highness adds a subtle touch of class to any manicure." (Source: ILNP) I finished with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.










ILoveNailpolish are available on Etsy and at their own shop.Apparently, they have stopped producing any glitter toppers.

A Box, Indied - A Twinkle In Time






A new week, a new "A Box, Indied". The first polish of the december box I want to show you is Girly Bits A Twinkle In Time.





As base color I used OPI 7th Inning Strrretch (MLB Collection), a frosty steel blue shimmer. The formula was very nice, not too thin and not too thick, perfectly opaque in one single coat.






Then I added one coat of A Twinkle In Time, a clear base packed with tiny silver holographic particles and small hex glitter in all colors of the rainbow (plus some silver holographics).




I'm sure A Twinkle In Time could be worn alone for an extra super duper sparkly mani, but I preferred it layered, even with one thin coat it's already very (very very) sparkly. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top finished this mani.











Girly Bits polishes are available at her own storeLlaroweHarlow & Co.Overall Beauty and Mei Mei's Signatures. A Twinkle In Time is exclusive to the december "A Box, Indied". The box with five products is available at Llarowe as a one month only box or as subscription (50$ per box).

I Don't Think Brit Chicks Exist






Fall's over now, but I still haven't shown you all my fall manis. Here's one I wore about four weeks ago.





My base color is Catrice Brit Chick, a brown, brick red leaning polish with silver shimmer. I used two medium coats for opacity.






Then I dabbed on one coat of Dollish Polish  R.O.U.S.'s I Don't Think They Exist , a clear based glitter topper filled with small copper hexes and teeny tiny multicolored glitters (red, blue and green). There are also a little bigger gold hexes, and some of the glitters are holographic. (Dolly herself describes this polish as "Jammed packed with hexagon & square glitters in shades of Gold, Champagne, and Caramel")




Application went quite easy, one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top provided a smooth finish.











Dollish Polish are available at their store, at Llarowe and at Overall Beauty.

52 Week Challenge - Chevrons / Red And Gold







This weeks challenge themes are already Christmas-y with red/gold and chevrons. I used a color combo that reminds me very much of Sunnydale High School...





My base color is Essence A Piece Of Love (Breaking Dawn Part II Trend Edition), a warm, yellow toned gold shimmer. The pictures show two coats.





After three hours of drying time (I added some topcoat to speed it up), I used chevron nail vinyls and added one thick coat of Artdeco 171, a dark red, almost maroon shimmer,. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top finished this mani.

A Box, Indied - Turkey Coma





Today I want to show you the next polish of the november "A Box, Indied", Colors by Llarowe Turkey Coma.





Turkey Coma is a bright, vivid red holo, somewhere between tomato and apple. I used two coats for opacity.





For this "brocade" look I stamped with Mentality Tempest and MoYou Fashionista Collection plate 07. No topcoat on this one, I wanted to keep the matte, velvety look of the Mentality polish.
