Nail Crazies Unite: Vampy Matte




 


Vampy matte is the theme for the last Nail Crazies Unite week (I sure hope there will be another round...).





Vampy means dark colors for me, red or purple. In my untrieds I found this Pahlish Mystery Polish, a deep, almost black purple-leaning red that reminds me of ripe black cherries. It has some copper and purple flakie shimmer in it. I used three coats for opacity.








To match the beautiful fall trees, I added some golden leaves using Barry M. Gold Foil and B. loves plates B.04 leaves of happiness plate. After one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top I added one coat of Picure Polish G'Day Matte for the matte finish.













Pahlish polishes are available on Bigcartel and at Overall Beauty.

My base polish is Depend Nr. 372, a medium grey with blue flakie shimmer. This one is rather sheer, I used three coats and it wasn't completely opaque.








For the stamping I used China Glaze Little Drummer Boy and MoYou London Pro Collection plate 23. As usual, I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

Cherish The Fall Semester





Some teal and green for today.





As base color I used three coats of ILNP Fall Semester, a deep teal holo. As you can see, my bottle is quite old (they changed the bottle form years ago), but the formula is still easy to work with.





Then I stamped on a swirly pattern using China Glaze Cherish and DRK XL Designer plate 1 and added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.















ILNP polishes are available on Etsy, Hypnotic Polish, Harlow & Co. and at their own shop.

Hourglass Nebula






Yes, another fall colored mani. You're going to see lots of these in the next couple of weeks ;-)




My base polish is Different Dimension Hourglass Nebula, a chocolate brown crelly with color-shifting hexes and silver holo flakies. Sadly, the colorshift isn't really visible on the nail, only if you look very closely. I used three coats.








The stamping is created using Kiko Mirror Lacquer 617 (Taupe) and ÜberChic Lovely Leaves plate (and of course one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top).













Different Dimension polishes can be found at their own shop and at Hypnotic Polish.

Talk About Ruby Sky






I had something completely different in my mind when I started this mani, but in the end, I liked the outcome even better than my original plan...





My base color is ILNP Ruby Sky. "Ruby Sky is a seriously rich blue polish with delicious purple undertones. This stunner makes excellent use of high quality red and pink shimmers that effortlessly stand out in all types of lighting! Ruby Sky was specifically formulated to provide a wonderful base to shimmer contrast and noticeably buildable depth with each successive coat!" (Source: ILNP) Ruby Sky is a little too sheer for my liking, I used three coats and as you can see, it's still somewhat translucent. The next time, I'll probably layer it over a dark blue creme.








For the stamping I used Essie Penny Talk and ÜberChic Beauty Lovely Leaves plate. Of course, I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.











ILNP polishes are available on Etsy, Hypnotic Polish, Harlow & Co. and at their own shop.

Nail Crazies Unite: Sugar Skulls









This week's challenge theme is Sugar Skulls. These are absolutely on a thing here in Switzerland, so I only know sugar skulls from the internet. Did I nail it? I don't know, but I tried, and it's the thought that counts, right?





On my thumb, index and pinkie finger, I used three coats of aEngland Order Of The Garter, a blue shimmer. This one's way too sheer for my liking, it was still quite translucent after the three coats, as you can see best on my pinkie. Lovely color, but the first aEngland polish I'm disappointed by.

For the stamping I used Bundle Monster plate BM-413 an MoYou London White Knight, over a base of MoYou London Black Knight. For the eyes I used P2 So Cool! and a dotting tool. As usual, I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.











aEngland polishes are available at various places, you'll find a complete list of retailers here.
