A Few Recent Manicures!

I bought myself several polishes over the holiday break, so here’s a quick post with some shots of various manis I’ve had since the start of the year!

My new years’ nails were a simple stampicure– Bifrost, a deep blue holo by Smitten Polish, stamped with Rollin’ With The Chromies by Essie. A nice mani for nails I was growing out after several nasty breaks.

This is Colors by Llarowe’s Madame Vastra, a green/yellow/orange flakie in a sheer purple jelly base, over two coats of Cult Nails’ Flushed, a royal purple. I matted it, which is a cool effect, but mattes ALWAYS chip on me inside of two days, no exceptions.

And a shiny flakie mani– this time I used Bonanza! by Indigo Bananas (a blue to green shifting flakie) over Liquid Fear by Arcane Lacquer (a magenta crelly with blue interference). I was a little underwhelmed by the formula for Liquid Fear. Three coats to opacity, and I still see bits where it’s uneven, and I got tip wear within 24 hours. But at least this combo makes my inner Jem-loving six year old flail with joy.

That’s it for now. I have a few more thermals I’m aiming to do next!
