Veil nail art with Polish ‘M and Tonic Polish

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
1 coat of base
Polish ‘M Cold Hands, Warm Heart, 3 thin coats. This applied really nicely and evenly. I would describe this as a pale sky blue base with glitters of white, pink, blue.
Tonic Polish Hush
Dreamland Lacquer Ooh Shiny QDTC, 1 coat

I can’t believe I waited this long to wear this Polish ‘M. It is so interesting! I think it would be too blue with the added blue shimmer and glitters, but it just brightens it up. Also it did not dry too gritty either.

magnetic drag marble mani with Tonic Polish Becoming, L.A. Colors Hot Blooded | Be Happy And Buy Polish

This is my current mani and while I like it, it didn’t turn out like I expected. I think the red dried darker than I expected so it doesn’t pack the punch against Becoming like I wanted. It’s still a glorious manicure, which is why I took a lot of photos. 😛  Continue reading
