Twinsie Post with The Polish Owl: Takko Lacquer Kiss the Sky

If you are a regular reader of my Blog you probably know that I am friends with Radha from the Polish Owl. She is one of the most supportive, quirky and sweet girls out there and never gets tired to encourage me. Recently I dipped my nails into new e-shop land by ordering FINALLY from Mei Mei's Signatures . This was a long nurtured wish of mine but I was afraid to loose control over my shopping cart - LOL!!! To make the long story short: Radha treated herself with some Takko Lacquers and I caved ;-). Both of us just LOVE Takko Lacquer Kiss the Sky, and Radha being the spontaneous and open lovey I got to know she immediately jumped to the idea of a Twinsie Post - thanks love <3!!!

I really had no time to redo my nails completely so I just applied one coat of Kiss the Sky over my existing mani with Passe Nati Olho Turco

Kiss the Sky is sheer but has a perfect consistency. And look at this shimmer, looks like anything out there multiplied by X!!! Kiss the Sky dries down to a satin finish which really brings out its myriads of sparkles over the dark shimmer of Olho Turco.

I finished the look with one coat of Vefic Top Coat and look:

Yes, you see correctly, sparkle gone - it brought back the underlying Passe Nati Olho Turco. While I like the result I am left with sort of mmpf over the lost magic.... I cannot tell you how much I had to twist my hand to get the amount of shimmer visible :-S

I cannot let the story end like this, finally Kiss the Sky on its own. You see here three coats of it over Essence XXL Nail Thickener.

and one other picture in a hopefully similar lightning like Radha:

Enough of my babble, time to hop over to The Polish Owl and have a look at her beautiful hands .....

Thank you Radha for joining me for this post. It was so exiting and fun to do, I hope we can repeat this in the future. Oh and Kiss the Sky looks awesome on you <3!!!
