Petropolitan Camouflage






It's already december! Is it just me or does time really fly?




My base color for today's mani is Catrice Petropolitan, a green leaning teal with a blue glass fleck shimmer. Petropolitan is on the sheer side, it was just about opaque after three coats.








On top of Petropolitan, I dabbed one coat of Lumina Lacquer Camouflage. Camouflage has a clear base with lots of various glitters: green microglitter, green hexes and dots, teal squares, two sizes of teal hexes, lime green hexes, big translucent neon green hexes, matte green stars, small and big black hexes, black hearts and huge teal holo dots.




I placed the bottle upside down for about half an hour before using it, so even the bigger glitters came out of the bottle easily. But the base was not as packed with glitters as I expected, and it was a little thinner than I prefer, so I had a lot of base on my nails until I was happy with the glitter distribution, and due to the thick layer of polish, the glitters started to slide to the sides of my nails. Some of the big black hexes (not all of them, though), were curling, so I could still feel them through the layer of KBShimmer Clearly On Top I applied.














Lumina Lacquer are avaiable on Big Cartel and at MeiMei's Signatures, where I got mine.Camouflage is discontinued, but there are a lot of other beauties available.
