My base color is Catrice Nautica (Cruise Couture Limited Edition), a slightly purple toned indigo polish with a nice sapphire blue shimmer. I used two medium coats for opacity.
On top of Nautica, I added one coat of KBShimmer Shipwreck. "Ships lost at sea, churning waters, mythical creatures, and lost treasures, inspired this polish. I started with a base of a deep blue green color. Then, added several sized of hex glitters in teals, blues, greens, and purple. I can almost see these colors being on a beautiful mermaid. A hint of gold, and a pop of copper sparkle like hidden treasure and add depth to this polish."
Application of Shipwreck was easy, I dabbed it on like I do with (almost) all glitter toppers, but there was no need for fishing for glitters. I added one coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails top sealer.
As I'm really into matte manis at the moment, I added one coat of Essence Soft Touch Topcoat for a satin matte finish.
KBShimmer polishes are sold on their website (US only) and at Harlow & Co.

Vielen Dank! Ich stehe zurzeit extrem auf mattierte Lacke, fast jede Woche trage ich eimal matt :-)Delete
muss ich auch endlich mal wieder machen :) hab mir letztens einen matten top coat von kiko gekauft, den muss ich noch ausprobieren :)Delete
Ich finde es super, vor allem, wenn ich eine Mani mehrere Tage trage und zwischendurch doch Lust auf etwas "neues" habe. Eine zusätzliche Schicht, die ohnehin fast sofort trocknet, und tada: eine neue Mani :-)Delete
Der sieht matt einfach nur hammer aus!ReplyDelete
Vielen Dank, ich war/bin auch ganz verliebt in die matte Version :-)Delete
