Golden Oldie Thursday - Something Tropical
Today's theme of the Golden Oldie Thursday is "something tropical". I chose a tropical ocean :-)
My pinkie, middle finger and thumb show three coats of WingDust Collection Ocean Tears, a turquoise jelly with slight grey undertones, filled with aqua and turquoise holographic hexes and some holo-shimmer pigment. The first coat was very irregular, all the polish assembled on one side of the nail, but the other coats applied easily to a regular surface.
On my ring and index finger I used two coats of aEngland Galahad, a creme polish in almost the same shade as Ocean Tear's jelly base. On my ring finger I used some Born Pretty Store water decals (I actually expected to get the tropical fish, like the first picture. I ordered twice, but I got the sea shells both times...), on my index finger I stamped some fish using MoYou Sailor Collection plate, Essie Turquoise & Caicos and Size Matters, Catrice Vanilla Love and Salmon & Garfunkel.
One coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer finished this mani (and smeared my stamping...).
a England polishes are available at various places, you'll find a complete list of retailers here.
WingDustCollections polishes are available on Etsy and at Llarowe. As Ocean tears is a golden oldie, it's not available anymore.
