I was nearly obsessed with La Couleur Couture 1972 - I already posted about this - and wore it (that was before the mosaic Skittlette) with an accent nail using Opi Don't Burst My Bubble and Opi Which is Witch?:
I applied two coats of La Couleur Couture 1972 over Essence XXL Nail Thickener. For the accent nail I applied two coats Opi Don't Burst My Bubble to my ring finger and one coat of Opi Which is Witch? Very soft and delicate.
Come Tuesday I was still in the mood for soft and delicate. From Opi's Wizard of Oz Collection I only picked two polishes, Witch is Which? is featured above, my second pick was Don't Burst My Bubble. Worn on its own it looks like this:
To amp up the look I applied one coat of Picture Polish Mardi Gras:
I love the small sized glitters of Picture Polish. They are not super densely filled with glitter but their consistency is perfect and dries down to a smooth finish.
As mentioned above M was incredibly sweet and sponsored me some nailpolish - swoon!!! On top of my wishlist sat Dior Diablotine - somehow my nails urge for happy and bright corals at this time of the year.
The application was a DREAM, dry time fantastic!!! It dries down to a slightly dull finish due to the amount of sparkle in it, on the above picture I have not applied any Top Coat yet to show the shine induced by the sparkle.
M was really generous and I could get another Dior. I choose Pourpre Revolution - this was released I believe in Fall 2012 (but am not sure here). It is the darkest possible purple looking just a hairline off black.
Again application is a dream and Pourpre Revolution dries down to an incredibly high shine. I used two coats of Dior Pourpre Revolution over Essence XXL Nail Thickener. I finished the look with Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer.
I am a Cultie and of course pre-ordered the Cult Nails Spring 2013 In The Garden Collection. Right now I am counting the days to the anticipated shipping on 10 April - from there it is probably another 10-12 days until these babies arrive at their new home. To sweeten my waiting anxiety I threw Cult Nails Afterglow from their Behind Closed Doors Collection onto my nails.
I know, I know, this is more of a wintery shade. But then I find it just too beautiful to wear it only during winter. I applied three thin coats over Essence XXL Nail Thickener (this is NOT the ideal base coat for Cult Nails - it causes the tiniest polish shrinkage, but nothing that tip-wrapping could not handle). The consistency is sheer - the first coat looked very see-through and a bit streaky but it built up nicely in three coats. I used Butter London Hardwear to finish the look.
Do you have any favorites here?
