Ophelia Is Impulsive






To fight the cold, grey november weather, a little pink for today's mani :-)




My base color is a England Ophelia (Gothic Beauties Collection), a blackened base with lots of purple shimmer, that sadly is more prominent in the bottle than on the nails. I tried to capture the purple shimmer in my pictures, but the bad lighting conditions made it nearly impossible. Application was a dream, as it is with (almost) all a England polishes, I used two coats for opacity.










On top of Ophelia I dabbed one coat of Aphrodite Lacquers Impulsive, a clear base with hexes in fuchsia, purple and silver holo, fuchsia dots in two sizes, holographic microglitter, purple and pink shimmer and huge silver and pink holo dots.




I placed the bottle upside down for about half an hour, so even the largest glitters came out willingly, that made application very easy. I added one coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food and one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top topcoat for a smooth finish.













a England polishes are available at various places, you'll find a complete list of retailers here.


 The Aphrodite Lacquers shop on Etsy is closed right now until further notice, but I hope Rebecca, the creator, will be back soon.

  1. Ich mag so große runde Plättchen echt gern in den Lacken :) und bei dem Lack sind ja echt viele verschiedene größen und Formen vertreten.

    1. Ich mag die riesigen Holo-Punkte auch sehr. Und da ich seit einer Weile hauptsächlich Indie-Lacke trage, finde ich mittlerweile die typischen Drogerie-Glitzerlacke, die nur eine oder zwei Sorten Glitzer enthalten, ziemlich langweilig ;-)

  2. Impulsive is stunning! I also miss Aphrodite Lacquers. I made some of my first indie purchases from them.

  3. Gorgeous. I don't own anything from Aphrodite. Yet :) Wish the A-England shimmers were more visible. That would have been one stunner

    1. I'm glad you like it, and I really hope you'll get the chance to get some Aphrodite Lacquers, the shop has been closed for quite some time now, and I don't know if Rebecca ever opens it again :-/
