Multichrome smooshy nail art with China Glaze and Great Lakes Lacquer

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
Great Lakes Lacquer O R’lyeh? [October 2017 Polish Pickup Pack], 2 coats plus top coat. This was almost a One-Coat Wonder. Freaking beautiful!

China Glaze Thataway, 2 coats plus top coat. Super thin.

I freaking loved this mani. Flashy and just brilliant. Just one of those manicures that makes you feel amazing while you’re wearing it. Is that a little silly, maybe? I don’t care. 😛 I painted the two colors next to each other on a piece of sandwich baggie, then smooshed it with a stamper and placed it on the nail.

I don’t know how many people have seen this veil technique but this is now the second or third time I’ve done a mani with it and it’s so fun. I first saw this through nail_muse on instagram but I saw this variation and had to try my hand at it. I tried to do an accent nail with Tonic Polish Caliente with the veil technique but I don’t think it worked. :/ (It’s come to my attention that perfect10customnails is perhaps the originator of the veil neil technique. Just gotta give credit where it is due!) Continue reading

Current mani here! I’ve been wanting to use Bolide from Turtle Tootsie Polishes since I bought it but everything I tried just didn’t click. I finally forced myself to sit down with it and come up with other complementary colors and a technique. And yes, I know you’ve seen a similar technique earlier this week. This technique was one I saw from yagala on instagram.

I love how the fluid nail art really looks like swirled candy or chocolate or even coffee. I started off with a shiny top coat and though I liked it, I really wanted to try it with a matte top coat.
