So, when I was looking at my polishes and realised I had enough similar finish holos to do a rainbow skittle I decided to do just that for the end of the week.
You know, all nails in different scattered holos. (I actually slightly prefer scattered holos to linear holos and the formula is usually easier and the same base and top coat as with “regular” polish is non-problematic to use.)
Teeez Outta Control – Teeez Cool – Catherine Arley No 803 – Catherine Arely No 801
And Teeez Smooth on the thumb.
Having done that, I looked at my nails and thought — “Why not go for a gradient transition between the colours?”
I absolutely adore the effect! And it wasn’t even particularly difficult to do. 🙂
I could just go on posting pictures of this mani… but I’m gonna stop here. 😉
Here’s the 19th task of the challnge — galaxy nails. I love me some “galaxy imitation” nail polish and galaxy manicures. 🙂
This time I decided to take this in a different direction and go for dark blue and abstract. I started with one coat of another of the Golden Rose Matte’s — No 10. This I painted over with a coat of the sheer on its own Wet n Wild Midnight.
I love the tiny holo glitter in Midnight! But that wasn’t enough of course, so I sponged on in random places the purple holo of Teeez Outta Control and China Glaze Liquid Crystal.
I love Liquid Crystal so much! Can’t wait to wear it on its own. 🙂
So, I’ve arrived back to home sweet home. 🙂 I’ve done a lot of sightseeing, relaxing and some shopping. And not nail polish shopping if you’d believe it.
I still have to sort through most of my vacation photos, including the awesomely long-lasting mani I did for it (wore it for eight days without chipping) and some other stuff.
So, meanwhile, a mani I did right before leaving — Teeez’s Outta Control, which the most amazing grape purple holo. The application of this was totally in control as it applied like butter in two easy coats.
This is an utterly amazing polish — more red toned in real life, though — and if you have any chance of getting it, I totally recommend it.
And while I sort through everything else, here are some of my favourite vacation pics as well:
And there you have it! 😀
I’m desperately trying to play catch up with blog posts, so if there’s a particularly interesting mani you’d like to share, please do so in the comments.
