Watcher On The Walls

Watcher On The Walls is today's polish of Glimmer by Erica's Game of Thrones collection.

Watcher On The Walls has a sheer black jelly base filled with silver and aqua hexes, silver microglitter and big silver holographic dots. The dots tend to stick to the bottle and didn't want to come out, but the few I got looked like a full moon in a night's sky on my nails. Just like the sky John Snow would see standing on the wall with the night's watch... Gorgeous! Since the base is so sheer, I layered two coats over a black base (Essence Black Is Back). One generous coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top was enough for a smooth finish. 

Glimmer by Erica polishes are available on Etsy.

Aurora Borealis

I live way too much south to actually see the Aurora Borealis, but at least I can wear it on my nails...

Aurora Borealis is the name of this polish of the Born Pretty Store Aurora Magnetic Series. It's a beautiful multichrome shifting from teal over blue and purple to pink (and it's very camera shy, it wont show the shift too much in my pictures. The last picture probably shows it best). So the name is not really matching, since the actual Aurora Borealis shows mostly green, but the polish is gorgeous nontheless. This one is quite sheer, so I recommend layering it over a dark base. I wore two coats over a black creme (Essence Black Is Back) and magnetized only the second coat. One coat of KBShimmer gave the mani some extra shine.

Lay Down With Number 13

Lay Down With Number 13 is the name of today's polish by Girly Bits.

Lay Down With Number 13 is a dark green jelly with lots of pink glitters. You can see the glitters perfectly in the bottle shot, but sadly, they weren't as visible on the nails. I used three coats and added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

Girly Bits polishes are available at her own store, Harlow & Co. and Mei Mei's Signatures

Over The Harvest Moon For You

From green to blue an wednesday...

Today's polish is Pretty  and Polished Over The Harvest Moon For You, a sheer dark blue jelly with silver holo sparcles and blue glitters in hex, dot and moon shape, some of them holographic. Since the base was so sheer, I layered one coat over a dark blue base (two coats of Essie Midnight Cami). One generous coat of KBShimmer Clearly On top gave the mani a smooth finish.

Pretty & Polished sadly decided to close, but maybe you get lucky and find some bottles on blog sales or so...

Oppulent Sapphire Flowers

After the last rather monochrome week, let's start this one with some color.

My base are three coats of P2 Oppulent Sapphire (Secret Splendor LE), a sapphire green shimmer with iridescent flakies. At first, I was planning to wear it on it's own, but the flakies didn't really translate to the nail, so it looked somewhat bland...

For the stamping I used Kiko Mirror Nail Lacquer 626 (Lawn Green) and MoYou London Pro Collection XL plate 24. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top fixed the stamping.

The final Frontier

Today I have a rather old mani to show you, I wore this one on a SciFi convention about a month ago.

As base I used ILNP My Little Glacier (H), a multichrome with a subtle shift from an icy blue to a little darker shade and a as well subtle holo effect. For the stamping I used black Born Pretty Store stamping polish and MoYou London Sci-Fi Collection plate 10. I added one coat of Bundle Monster Smudge Free Top Coat and one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

ILNP polishes are available on Etsy, Hypnotic Polish, Harlow & Co. and at their own shop.

Thunder & Lightening

Since the last mani I showed you was all white, let's continue with a black one, shall we?

Today's polish is Models Own Thunder & Lightening, a black jelly with tiny holo sparkles. I used four coats, but didn't get it opaque nontheless. If you're aiming for a competely opaque mani, better use a black creme base. This one dries somewhat satin matte, but one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top gave it a lovely shine.

When Colours Collide: Negative Space in White

Negative space in white was the latest prompt of the When Colours Collide challenge.

This one really was a challenge for me. Not because it was a very complicated mani, I did a simple stamping. But I've been wearing nail polish on a more or less daily basis for the last, well, almost 25 years, and so my nails are quite yellow (that's why I usually don't show them without polish). I did use a whitening base coat, but my tips just don't get really white... But in the end, I liked this mani much more than I expected. I used white Born Pretty Store stamping polish and ÜberChic Lovely Leaves 2 plate. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top, that's it.
