Here’s another one for the pretty ‘n’ glittery mani files, this time a semi-successful pastel snowflake design atop a holographic gradient using a Glam Polish lacquer that always reminds me of round, glittery Christmas ornaments. Actually, save the base polish (lakur’s beautiful purple-grey Opal) and the bright turquoise creme on my index and pinkie fingers (A England’s Whispering Waves) I used three Glam Polish colours here, glittery, ornament-y You’re Entirely BONKERS, dusky pink Hey Mama and sea foam Ladies Choice.
I’m not sure how successful I was with the design on my two middle fingers – it looks more like coral or some sort of hanging flower than a snowflake. I suppose that’s a function of the colours I chose here – there really aren’t that many pink and blue snowflakes out there. And if there are…well, that probably can’t be good. 😉
Kicking off the week with another everything-and-the-kitchen-sink lacquer from Glam Polish, this time the super sweet You’re Entirely BONKERS from their It’s Only a Dream, Alice Collection.
Like Six Impossible Things, a polish I took a closer look at last week, You’re Entirely BONKERS (emphasis on the “bonkers,” gotcha) is a silvery-blue holo stuffed with iridescent mirco-glitter, tiny chromatic flakies and a smattering of razor thin glass glitter. Six Impossible Things’ pale pink glitter gives that polish a delicate, sort of romantic look, but You’re Entirely BONKERS positively dazzles with a disco’s worth of purple, blue and green glass glitter that actually looks like ALL the colours of the rainbow when it’s out in the sun doing its sweet thang.
Speaking of, also like Six Impossible Things, You’re Entirely BONKERS was just a total jerk to try and photograph, both in and out of the sun, but particularly in the shade where its iciness registers as out-of-focus. Another pretty polish that presents so much better in real life than in photographs, but gorgeous all the same.
