Nail art with Fancy Gloss and Darling Diva Polish

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
Darling Diva Polish Rey, 2 coats [previously swatched]
Fancy Gloss Mystery Box Prototype 2016, holographic purple with blue shift

I loosely based this nail art look on something I saw from koba_nails_studio on instagram. I started with Rey; painted the Fancy Gloss on a piece of saran wrap. Then using a stamper, I smooshed it on the polish, then kept smooshing it over itself until most of it was pulled up (I hope this makes sense, I’m writing this late at night!). Then I applied it to the nail. I’m thinking either the base color should have been either lighter or darker. It was hard to really see the beauty of the Fancy Gloss. :/

Darling Diva Rey nail polish swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
Darling Diva Polish Rey, 2 coats and no top coat. Formula was sheer and thin but removal was fairly easy.

Sigh. Man, I have so much to do right now and I don’t wanna do anything. I wanna pour a big glass of wine and sit in quiet time. I have zero wine though and there’s definitely no quiet to be had. :/ Anyway…I used Rey as the base to some upcoming nail art and thought you might like to see it by itself. It’s quite a lovely neutral shade!
