Today I have ‘Will’s Alive’ by Canvas lacquer, an unusual polish and a stunning colour. It reminds me of tropical blue seas, don’t you think? in fact it doesn’t look quite real – if you know what I mean. I have embellished it with tiny stars from Born Pretty Store by setting them in clear polish. I love this colour and an added bonus is that it glows in the dark! Have a great week all!
October is here, the leaves on the trees are changing colour, nights are rapidly drawing in, the clocks will soon go back and summer is now certainly a distant memory. With that in mind I wanted to use colours that have a strong Autumn vibe to them.
Here I have combined two polishes for each nail. We have:
Yellow: Potion Polish – Marvelous Maple Topped with il etait un vernis – Hello Sunshine
Purple: Leighton Denny ‘Raspberry Afair’ Topped with Tonic ‘The Answer is 42’
Blue/Green: Nails Inc ‘Gosfield Street’ Topped with ILNP ‘Interstellar’
Red: Nails Inc ‘Saville Row’ Topped with ‘New Burlington Place’
How beautiful is this limited edition polish ‘Broadway Baby!’ from Colours by Llarowe!?!
It is a multi chrome that shifts between royal blue, turquoise and purple.
Now my school uniform at middle school was royal blue and I hated it so much in fact that I haven’t worn that colour for years but this polish has changed my mind – with the colour shifts I found myself admiring it all of the time, I even had to be extra careful when I was driving as the colour would catch my eye when stopping at traffic lights etc and distract me – he he!
Believe me, if you love multi chrome shades, you need this in your life!
Yes I own literally hundreds of polishes but this is just so beautiful that it hands down beats everything I own.
Tonic Polish – ‘Dragon Tears’
Made with a scattered holographic multitone pigment, the colour shifts through green, blue, purple, red & peach and even looks copper at some angles and also has a spattering of tiny silver holo micro glitter to finish off the look – not too many, just the perfect amount as to not dull the colour shift. The consistency is pretty thin so it flows on nicely and three coats result in a smooth, brushstroke free finish. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m pretty sure that it would look equally stunning over black or a dark colour to create a different look.
If you haven’t come across ‘Tonic’ before I highly recommend that you check them out they have such unusual shades you will fall in love. They haven’t been around all that long – I believe that they started trading last year but it is my belief that they are definitely ones to watch!
