Oh my gosh, so many steps to create this mani but it is well worth it. It came out really nicely and I have been flashing and moving my nails around a lot. I’ll detail the steps I took below! Continue reading
Shleee Polish Annihilation, chameleon chrome magnetic polish
Don Deeva Cardiac Arrest’ed [previously swatched], purple when cold to teal when warm thermal polish
I’ve been in a bad place lately with my anxiety and even though my nails are at a really nice length (*knock on wood*), I haven’t felt like painting my nails at all. I almost had an anxiety attack the other night because I couldn’t decide on what to use to paint my nails. That’s something I really hate about anxiety – the freaking out about stupid – absolutely stupid & pointless – shit. I’ve barely left the house because crowds give me anxiety as well as just general anxiety about being out in public.
Anyway, in a group I’m in on Facebook (Magnetic Polish Lovers), Christine (@shortywhatwhat) shared a mani where she layered a clear to purple thermal with a magnetic polish. I thought it was such a nifty idea and tried it with a clear to blue thermal and a different Shleee Polish (that mani will be coming soon) and it didn’t turn out. I really wanted this concept to work so I decided to experiment a little bit and found out a combo that worked in some flame drag marble nail art. I almost used Don Deeva Box Office Bitch – which I may use in a different thermal magnetic mani combo. Continue reading
Don Deeva Stripper Glitter
Don Deeva Box Office Bitch [previously swatched]
This is 1 coat of Stripper Glitter over Box Office Bitch with 1 coat of top coat. This is top coat hungry but applies even and has good consistency.
Don Deeva Sylvia “Sylveon” Bernstein
Don Deeva Glocks & PopRocks 3 coats [previously swatched]
The glitters on Sylvia Bernstein slightly stick up so I needed 2 coats of top coat.
Don Deeva Varnish Glocks & PopRocks (3 coats no top coat); Good consistency, applies a little patchy
So hi again! Have I mentioned lately that life is just busy? I’m sure everyone is running around like a chicken with its head cut off so hopefully I’m in good company. Anyway, tonight how about Don Deeva Keep My Name Outcha Meowth?
Keep My Name Outcha Meowth is a super sheer neutral holographic polish with bronze specks. This has a good consistency and dries matte. This is 3 coats plus top coat.
I haven’t yet tried this over another polish – I bet over a gold or neutral would be a fun manicure! What do you think?
Hey everyone! I’m currently sitting here typing this up to schedule in advance with a drink in my hand. Yeah, it’s been that kind of day. But as always, nail polish and pretty nails makes everything (mostly) better. Let’s take a look at Don Deeva Varnish Box Office Bitch.
Box Office Bitch is a tri-thermal polish that shifts from very light purple/clear to blue to purple. It also has scattered holographic effect and UCC flakes. Continue reading
