Harlequin Potion Master

 I think in times like these we all need some more glitter in our lifes, right?

As base for this glitter mani I applied two coats of Maniology Harlequin, a dark blue creme stamping polish with teal undertones.

On my base I dabbed one generous coat of CrowsToes Absolum - Your Potions Master, a chunky glitter topper in a clear base. There are silver holographic, green, blue and orange hex glitters in it, plus some black bar glitters. As most chunky glitters, Absolum dried a little gritty, so be generous with your top coat (I used KBShimmer Clearly On Top).

Crows Toes polishes are available at their own store (US only) and Color4Nails.

When Colours Collide: purple, copper and black

Hi there, long time no read. I've been working from home this past two weeks (I don't really have to tell you why, right?) and had thus more time than usual, but I didn't really feel like blogging. But I have so many pictures to show you, I just can't put it off forever. So here's my mani for the last round of When Colours Collide.

I started with three coats of Essence Elfin Whispers (Step Into Magic Wonderland), a lilac/purple metallic. A nice color, but too sheer for my liking. The three coats weren't really opaque, but with the nail art over it, it was OK. 

The marble effect was created with dry marbelling on my ÜberMat using Elfin Whispers, Essence Black is Back and the copper Maniology Spiced Orange. I transferred the marble pattern to my nails using a stamper and fixed it with one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.
