Emerald Plumage






This mani is a copy of one I've seen ages ago (I think it was last summer or fall) on a blog, and I just can't remember where. As it is nothing special, just some simple layering, I hope the blogger won't be mad if I don't credit her (if you think it's your blogpost I copy, please comment, so I can still credit you).





As base color I used China Glaze Emerald Fitzgerald (Vintage Vixen Collection), a blackened base with lots of teal shimmer. Formula was good, a little on the sheer side, I used three thin coats for opacity.




On top of Emerald Fitzgerald I dabbed one coat of Candeo Colors Plumage. "Plumage has a sheer base and is loaded with silver shimmer, green, turquoise and dark blue hex glitter. A liberal amount of seafoam square glitter is also included."

Application was good, all glitters came out of the bottle willingly and lay flat on my nails. I added one coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer for a smooth finish.










Then I added one coat of Essence Soft Touch topcoat to mattify it.














Candeo Colors polishes, including Plumage, are available through their own website. A few selected colors are also available through Llarowe.

    1. So do I :-) But I have to admit, I'm not that crazy about it anymore as I was last year. Last year I was all "OMG, this polish has square glitters, I NEED it!", this year I'm more about circle glitter. I wonder what shape it will be next year ;-)

  2. I prefer round glitter, but from afar I still like the effect!

    1. As I mentioned to Squeaky Q, I'm all into round/circle glitter too, but I still like the square one. But circles are awesome :-)

    1. Ich finde den Namen auch super. Ich liebe spezielle/lustige Namen bei Lacken, es gibt in meinen Augen nichts schlimmeres als Namen à la Manhattan, 1010N oder so, die kann ich mir nie merken (ausser eben dem 1010N, das ist der schwarze Creèmelack ;-) )
