Thermal Flame Drag Marble manicure with Polish ‘M and Fancy Gloss

Purchased by Me buttonSo, I’ll be honest, I can’t find my notes on this mani for the life of me. Logically, they should be in my nail notebook that I write all manis and swatches down in, but it’s not. And I’ve looked multiple times. I guess I’m just winging it today. 🙂

Thermal Drag Marble manicure with KBShimmer We Make Your Dreams Come Blue and Fancy Gloss Siren’s Lure

Hi everyone! I hope you’ve had a good weekend. I’ve been working out more often and trying to get more fit, so I’ve graduated from walking, then walking with running intervals, then running with walking intervals, and now full on running. Don’t get me wrong, running isn’t my favorite thing but I am trying to vary my workouts. I have discovered I enjoy lifting weights, so there’s that! Anyway….today’s mani is a thermal drag marble with KBShimmer We Make Your Dreams Come Blue [gift] with Fancy Gloss Siren’s Lure [purchased myself].

Pahlish Munchkinland is a pale pink base with rose gold flakes of different sizes. I layered 2 coats of this over OPI I Couldn’t Bare Less for a more pronounced white look. I dotted with Fancy Gloss Pixie Rose.

Fancy Gloss Pixie Rose is a pink holographic micro glitter with green flash/shimmer. Formula is very thick, and dries very textured. I used 3 thin coats but it took me THREE coats of top coat to get a glossy shine. I had no texture after 2 coats of top coat but no real glossy shine. :/ No bueno.

I used OPI polishes to create the black & white watermarble. Of course, my other hand came out a bit better (and of course, I didn’t take a picture of her).

I love how this turned out – it’s just kind of a funky skittlette manicure (and you know how I like those!). What are your thoughts?
