Good Evening Sistas!
I hope your lives are being great :)
I'm facing a quite hectic but kind of energetic time here getting ready for my departure and with so many changes going on in my job and trying to get things done in my life schedule too.
One of the things I'm trying to plan is our meeting, a couple actually, and I will post about this later.
Now let's go straight to the mani I'm wearing right now. I did it a couple of days ago and I'm super excited, happy and satisfied with it!
I think I will be doing a lot of plain swatches in the future, since I'm getting a bunch of new lacquers I am madly in love with and which are becoming my faovurites, so without any further hesitation, here come the pictures:
Matte blue and white base on alternate nails
I'm using the same top coats as last time:
- China Glaze It's A Trap-Eeze
- Rainbow Honey 20% Cooler
But this time I'm willing to try them on WITH a base color, as you could tell from the first pic lol! :D
I have to confess that this changed my mind A LOT:
- My actually favourite is now 20% Cooler, which I like better then It's A Trap-Eeze..!!Oh yes you have read correctly my dears. I find the quantity of flakies and the way they layer, their colors and the brightness more flattering, and I regret only buying the mini version of the bottle
- I find that they look WAY better with a colored base, that they even look more organized and neat. I think that the base enhances the beauty of the flakies and of the overall look.
On to the mani pics, this is very simple yet super fun and crazy I would ever recommend it to a young girl celebrating Mardi Gras.
I adore it! Even better then a lot of nail arts, and I already know I'll never ever want to take it off!
What do you guys think of simple but not to simple manis like this one??
Which of these two lacquers do you like better and why?
Have you ever tried them together? I highly recommend that you do!
P.S. Do you usually top coat those kind of enamels? I don't usually do that but I did this time, since I felt like China Glaze remained a little rough and harsh on me, and that I needed something to save my mani from coming off quickly (which happened with last one with those same products), but I'm not sure if it enhanced my look or maybe even made it look worse..
