Flower Road

Flower Road sounds like spring, but the colors of today's polish definitely call "fall".

Flower Road is one of Born Pretty Store's Magnetic Holo Series. They're not really holo, despite their name, but magnetic multichrome shimmers with some flakies. Flower Road shifts from magenta to a golden green. In the bottle you can also see some blue hues on the egde of the bottle, but no blue was visible on the nails. I appplied two coats over a black base (Essence Black Is Back) and magnetized the second coat, then I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

When Colours Collide: black, purple and pastel blue

Black, (midtone) purple and pastel blue are the colors that were asked for in the latest round of When Colours Collide.

I used my purple as a base, two coats of Essie Shades On. Then I stamped with tow different patterns, first with light blue Born Pretty Store stamping polish and ÜberChic Texture-Licious 3 plate for a more textured base, then with black Born Pretty Store stamping polish and MoYou London Crystal Collection plate 04 for the diamond gradient. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top added last.

Butterfly Nebula

Butterfly Nebula (by Different Dimenion) is today's polish.

Butterfly Nebula has has a deep cool toned purple jelly base filled with miltichrome hex glitters shifting through the whole rainbow. The color shift is better visible in the bottle than it is on the nail, but I love the polish nontheless. I used three coats and added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

Different Dimension polishes can be found at their own shop and at Hypnotic Polish. Butterfly Nebula is no longer available, but there are a lot of other lovely shades.

When Colours Collide: Yellow, Grey and Brown

I took a short break from blogging, but not from polishing my nails, so I have a lot of manis to show you. Let's start with the latest round of When Colours Collide with the prompt yellow, grey and brown.

Not my favorite combo, to be honest. It has some industrial vibe to me, so I went with a distressed mani. As base I used three coats of Girly Bits Peel Here, a light grey with a subtle silver fleck shimmer. Then I applied the brown (Catrice Dilce & Havanna) and yellow (MoYou London Sweet Custard) directly with the almost dry bottle brush. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top sealed the mani.

Girly Bits polishes are available at her own store, Harlow & Co. and Mei Mei's Signatures

Silver Texas Tea

A blue and silver combo is more winter like, but who says you can't wear in in summer?

My base are three coats of Colors by Llarowe Black Gold Texas Tea. The name sounds like a black polish, it looks charcoal in the bottle, but on the nails, it's a navy blue linear holo.

For the stamping, I chose a flower pattern from ÜberChic plate 1-02 and the silver holo Color Club Harp On It. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top finished the mani.

Colors By Llarowe are available at their own storeHypnotic polish, Color4Nails, Harlow & Co and a lot of other retailers.

Peacock is the name of today's polish, and it matches the colors perfectly.

In the bottle, Peacock looks mostly green, since the green hex glitters are stuck to the bottle. On the nails, the deep purple jelly base and the silver shard glitters are more prominent. I used three coats and added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

Picture Polish are available at  Harlow & Co., Pshiiit and their own shop (plus many more, here's a list of additional retailers).
