"I'd like to be under the sea
In an octopus' garden in the shade."
(The Beatles - Octopus's Garden)
Octopus's Garden (Imagine Collection) is, as a lot of Enchanted Polish are, a multichrome scattered holo. It changes from a deep indigo over purple and dark pink to a orange-y red in extreme angles. I used three coats for opacity and had no issues with application.
For my accent nail I used a technique I've been admiring for a long time now, but never tried it before: water marbeling. I used Octopus's Garden and a England Camelot for the black marbeling pattern. My first try didn't end up very good, I had some huge bubbles in it, that's why I added a picture of my "Cinderella" ring finger, where I took the second attempt, that turned out a little better :-)
Enchanted Polish are available at Harlow & Co., Mei Mei's Signatures, Norwaynails, Pshiiit and Big Cartel.
Oooooh, mesmerizing effect!ReplyDelete
I'm glad you like it, Melissa! Sadly, they are very hard to get nowadays... :-/Delete
Ahhhh one of the choosen ones and I see you also have it in the old bottle like me. These days it takes a determined mind and a huge amount of luck to haul any EPs ;-) Beautiful!!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Christine. I miss the days' when EP were sold in the round bottle, you could put 4 polishes in your cart and actually check out with 4 bottles. Today you're lucky if the stock lasts for tree seconds instead of 1.5...Delete
Ich finde den Effekt auf dem Ringfinger total toll.ReplyDelete
Vielen Dank, Wiebke! Der erste Versuch hätte schlimmer herauskommen können ;-)Delete
