Botanical Jewel






For today's mani I used two polishes by the swedish brand Kicks. I bought them during my trip to Oslo last august.

 


The base color is called Botanica, a light blue creme with grey and green undertones. I used two coats for opacity. I'm not 100 % sure, but I think this one was a little greener when I bought it almost a year ago...

 


Then I used Jewel Of Denial, a dark, shimmery teal, and Bundle Monster plate BM-212 to add this pattern. One coat of aEngland The Shield finished this mani.

Jewel Of Denial looks not really dark and quite blue in the thin stamped layer, but worn on its own with two coats, it's much darker and greener.

    1. Thank you so much, love! I don't really understand why I waited almost a year to wear these two. Well, my stash of untrieds knows the answer ;-)

      Mein Oslo-Urlaub letztes Jahr war recht Nagellacklastig, was die EInkäufe anbelangt ;-)
