China Glaze Lite Brites- Let’s Jam and What I Like About Blue!

 Let's Jam & What I Like About Blue

 

I did this manicure some time ago but I just saw I never posted it on the blog, so here it is.

China Glaze Let’s Jam is from the Lite Brites Collection for 2016. Lilac with blue shimmer- visible on the nail. Looks like spring on the nails.

China Glaze What I Like About Blue- hmm, sea blue with golden shimmer, dries matte. When there is no top coat applied the strokes from the brush are visible. The application wasn’t the best experience- one coat is not enough, and when you put a second one it has to be very thick, otherwise 3 coats for leveling it…

I did some stamping using nail polishes from the Layla Mirror Effect range for the circles, and then topped it with some feathers.

Paisley Gradient Manicure with OPI I Cannoli Wear OPI, Flamingo Tini Pink & You’re Such a Budapest

The weather gets hotter so I decided to do a paisley gradient manicure with OPI, Barry M and some stamping. For that particular mani I used three OPI nail varnishes: OPI I Cannoli Wear OPI, Flamingo Tini Pink and You’re Such a Budapest. They are such nice muted pastel colors so I thought they are perfect for purpose especially when combined with a bright stamping.

For the paisley  stamping I used Barry M Guava and Creative Shop Stamper.

OPI I Cannoli Wear OPI is from the Venice 2015 Collection and is a muted dusky light grey. I used it as the base for the whole project. Nice coverage and quite opaque with 2 coats.

OPI Flamingo Tini Pink is from the limited edition Hello Flamingo Collection and is a bubblegum pink pastel. Pretty nice tbh.

OPI You’re Such a Budapestfrom the Spring 2013 Euro Centrale Collection. Dusky lilac greyish, kinda periwinkle? Gotta test it alone in a mani some day.  Paisley Gradient Manicure with OPI IMG_1872 Paisley Gradient Manicure with OPI IMG_1881

Spring has sprung and it’s time for some strawberries. So here it is – OPI S-ageless Beauty!

OPI S-ageless Beauty is a muted pistachio green polish from the brand’s Infinite Shine 2 series – something like a gel effect nail polishes that should last longer, have intense colors and shine until removed.

I did some free-hand nail art aiming for strawberries. And then I decide to matte it- it looked really nice :

The manicure lasted good 6-7 days will I decided to change it. But to be fair I kinda don’t know if this Infinite Shine 2  polish delivers what is promised as usually the nail polishes last on my nails until I decide to change.
