Nautica's Shipwreck





I already wore exactly this combination about a year ago, but as it was pre-blog, I decided to wear it again, and this time show it to you :-)





My base color is Catrice Nautica (Cruise Couture Limited Edition), a slightly purple toned indigo polish with a nice sapphire blue shimmer. I used two medium coats for opacity.





On top of Nautica, I added one coat of KBShimmer Shipwreck. "Ships lost at sea, churning waters, mythical creatures, and lost treasures,  inspired this polish. I started with a base of a deep blue green color. Then,  added several sized of hex glitters in teals, blues, greens, and purple. I can  almost see these colors being on a beautiful mermaid. A hint of gold, and a pop  of copper sparkle like hidden treasure and add depth to this polish."

Application of Shipwreck was easy, I dabbed it on like I do with (almost) all glitter toppers, but there was no need for fishing for glitters. I added one coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails top sealer.








As I'm really into matte manis at the moment, I added one coat of Essence Soft Touch Topcoat for a satin matte finish.













KBShimmer polishes are sold on their website (US only) and at Harlow & Co.

    3. Ich finde es super, vor allem, wenn ich eine Mani mehrere Tage trage und zwischendurch doch Lust auf etwas "neues" habe. Eine zusätzliche Schicht, die ohnehin fast sofort trocknet, und tada: eine neue Mani :-)
