Hello! If you missed part 1 click here! I’m not going to say anything else about Pirouette My Whistle (PMW) because it’s all in part 1. But I will say that I love it and I will be using it again in a post, who knows when though?
So here’s the right hand! PMW is 2 coasts on all nails with Sally Hansen Intsa Dri Topcoat. Sorry about the middle finger I was already beyond frustrated to fix it!
Kleancolor Melon Green is 3 coats. Kind of frosty builds nicely.
3 coats of Sinful Colors Secret Admirer. This doesn’t dry real fast but it doesn’t take forever. 2 coats probably would have been fine. I’m not exactly sure what I was thinking when I choose this. Individually this is different from a regular black because it’s loaded with very fine silver glitter that is just a tiny bit smaller then the silver in the in PMW. So is basically the same as my other index finger just a bit more silver glitter. 😛
Revlon Minted is in 3 coats. This is another polish that likes to bald badly. So I ended up putting the last coat thick. So apparently while picturing the left hand first I must have pressed it to hard into the camera. I was pretty sure it was dry and since I already had to monkey with it just to get it on the nail in the first place I didn’t want to go through another headache to fix it. Pretty much the same as SC Unicorn on the middle finger, left hand.
3 coats of SC Nirvana. It seems like a few of the SC’s like to bald and never dry. This one isn’t as bad as Unicorn but you have to carefully lay it on thick.
3 coats of SC Ruby Ruby. I pretty good formula especially compared to the majority of the other SC’s I used for this swatching.
I hope you enjoyed the swatches of PMW.
Hi there! Around V-day Zoya had a promotion where you spent at least $4 and you could get any red polish of your choice (and maybe free shipping too? It’s been awhile). I don’t really own a lot of reds, especially cremes. As I looked through all of their reds they had this one “Carmen”. I thought picking my red would be hard but that name made it easy for me because that is my mothers name. It’s been over a year since she passed and I guess you could just call me silly but that’s why I picked this color.
Zoya Carmen done in 2 coats. This is a very bright red, with a tiny tiny bit of blue tone to it.
To me this red is still like “WOW!” Haha. Surprisingly, I really do like it! I’ll have to do it on both hands someday and see how much I
hate like it. 😀
What about you? What about matching lips and nails?
This design was one made by Dollface22772 on Youtube Titled “Cherries Jubilee”.
This is my own variation of it. I didn’t have any of the cherry fimo slices so I had painted the cherries using a dotting tool. Also instead of using a pink crackle polish, I painted over the white edge on one corner with a red polish. Then covered it with a white crackle polish.
Polishes I Used:
- Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
- Top Coat: Seche Vite
- White: Salley Hansen Xtreme Wear “White On”
- White Crackle: Chine Glaze Crackle Glaze “Lightning Bolt”
- White Stripe: Sinful Colors “Bad Chick”
- Red Stripe: Sinful Colors “Be my Valentine”
- Green Stems: L.A. Colors Art Deco “Bright Green”
