When Colours Collide: red, blue and yellow

The latest round of When Colours Collide asked for the three primary colors.

I started with a yellow base (three coats of Catrice Earnie and Birdy). The red and blue Born Pretty Store polishes I applies with the almost dry brush for an abstract effect. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top finished this very quick and easy mani.

This mani I created for the When Colours Collide challenge some time ago...

I dry-marbeled on my ÜberMat using essence Wild White Ways and royal blue Born Pretty Store stamping polish as base. Then I stamped some snowflakes using Barry M. Silver Foil and B. loves Plates let it snow pale. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top secured the stamping.

Chunky Sunset

I still have lots of quite old mani pictures on my computer, like this one from september. The colors clearly state "autumn", but as the winter weather still hasn't arrived in Switzerland, it feels more fall than winter...


As base I applied three coats of Born Pretty Store Sunset, and orange brown creme.

Then I added one coat of Kleancolor Chunky Holo Black, a slightly reddish tinted base filled with translucent multichrome hexes that show the whole rainbow. I really can't tell why there's "black" in name of this topper, since black and white are the only color it doesn't show... One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top finished the mani.

Frozen Skies

It hasn't really snowed yet where I live, but I do love my snowflake manis in winter...

My base are three coats of Born Pretty Store Blue Skies, a dove grey creme.

For the snowflakes I used Moniology Frozen, a white metallic, and Maniology plate MXM019 (both of the november stamping box). I added one coat of Maniology Smudge Free Top Coat to seal the stamping.

When Colours Collide: brown, beige & purple

I've been very lazy with blogging in the last couple of months, but with the new year, I try to do better. Let's start 2020 with the latest round of When Colours Collide.

I started with two coats of OPI Did You 'Ear About van Gogh?, a light beige creme. Then I sponged on a gradient using the OPI and Catrice Dulce & Havanna, a medium brown creme. My purple is MoYou London Purple House, the stamping plate I used is ÜberChic 15-03. I secured the stamping with one coat of Maniology Smudge Free Top Coat and added one coat of Essie Matte About You.
