So here’s my confession: I LOVE nail polish. Seriously, majorly love it. Some might say I’m addicted to it, to which I would reply, “Yeah, so?” I’m a dedicated reader of Scrangie, All Lacquered Up, Polish or Perish, Vampy Varnish, and all the other ladies in the nail polish swatch-and-review blogging circle. They’ve inspired me to start showing off my manicures!
I couldn’t resist starting with this one:
This mani consists of 2 coats of Avon Nailwear Pro in Vintage Blue, with 2 coats of Confetti’s Ice Ice Baby over the top. It’s finished off with 2 coats of Seche Vite, the best-est ever for an ultra gloss top coat.
I wore just the Vintage Blue for a couple days and LOVED it – Avon’s formulas apply like a dream and dry quickly. This color, a cream, went on smoothly without the gloopy unevenness and streakiness that creams are prone to.
Ice Ice Baby is what I would consider a base standard for an iridescent clear glitter – not as exciting as some, but classic and lovely. The iridescence ranges from pink in indirect light through to greens and blues. Here’s another picture for more glitter detail:
Isn’t it pretty? I’m calling it my Cinderella manicure, because it reminds me of the Disney Princess and her beautiful blue gown!
Let’s see: blue, twinkly, feminine, and sweet. Sounds like Cinderella to me!
I think I’ll see which other Princesses I can distill into manicure form – it’ll make me feel like I’m polishing for a purpose – and if the results are good, I’ll post them here!
