Golden Oldie Thursday - Day 10 - Purple
Golden Oldie Thursday, round 10. This weeks theme's purple.
I've been planning to follow this tutorial by Angela (aussie indie brand Gloss n' Sparkle) for quite some time, but I thought it to be even more time comsuming than it actually is (I expected it to take at least three hours, but in fact, it took me "only" two).
The polishes I used are Zoya Katherine (Gloss Collection), a sheer plum colored jelly, and Essie Beyond Cozy (Leading Lady Collection), a warm toned silver foil. I took five turns with each polish, so in total this mani contains of 10 layers (12 if you count base- and topcoat).
As always, you can check out all the other parcitipant's manis below.

Beautiful mani and another perfect choice of colors/finishes - 10 coats that would be a novum for me!!! But the result is totally stunning!ReplyDelete
Thank you Christine! I'm used to wear a lot of coats, but this one is really extreme ;-)Delete
Wow it was worth the time!'ReplyDelete
I'm glad you think so, thank you :-)Delete
wow that is such a cool idea, I really want to try it out! You've done a great job it looks gorgeous :) xReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Emily. You really should try it, while it's quite time consuming, it's really easy to achieve :-)Delete
Wahnsinn, 12 Schichten. Hat das gehalten? :D Ich finde die Optik auf jeden Fall grandios!ReplyDelete
Vielen Dank!. Ich trage meine Manis ja meist nur für einen Tag, und den hat sie gut durchgehalten. Es sah einfach ein bisschen aus wie Gel-Nägel, wegen der dicken Lackschicht ;-)Delete
I haven't seen this type of manicure before. Love the way it looks :)ReplyDelete
Thank you Helena, I'm glad you do :-)Delete
I've been tempted to do this manicure, but the thought of all those layers put me off. It does look gorgeous on you :)ReplyDelete
Thank you! While I love the outcome, it's nothing I'd want to do on a daily basis... ;-)Delete
