Happy Friday! Well, almost Saturday, but still! So, when I pulled WHITE for my prompt last night, I had a little bit of an idea of what I wanted to do. And I'm really happy with how it turned out...
1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler
3 Coats SinfulShine Kovet
Essie Leggy Legend
Pahlish Autumn People
Pure Ice Get In Line
2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite
For the past two weeks, I've been obsessively using Leggy Legend and Get in Line together. Oh, and I've been putting just a smidge of Autumn People on top, because I still can't quit that polish. I'm not sure why I didn't buy a backup or five.
Get in Line is a sheer turquoise shimmer that was just made for layering. It's subtle at some angles, but when the flash catches, it's strong. Combine that with the super pigmented metallic copper of Leggy Legend, and it's all over. What's especially cool is the fact that the combo works well over light and dark colors, and looks a little different (but still fabulous!) over each!
The WHITE polish I used for my base is none other than Kovet from SinfulShine. Part of the Kylie Collection, it's a white crelly with turquoise shimmer. If you're on the lookout, be wary, there is another white polish with gold shimmer in this collection called Koko-Nuts. I almost passed on Kovet until I picked it up and saw the flash. I had to have it!
I know I've said it before, but when it comes to SinfulColors, shimmer is their thing. They put out a lot of interesting combinations on a consistent basis. Some of the colors from the Trend Matters Collection are just gorgeous.
For this seriotype, I started out with 3 coats of Kovet. I did wait a few minutes in between each coat to help with streaking. Not exactly necessary considering I was planning to cover most of it anyway, but still. After that, I painted on Get in Line and dabbed randomly with saran wrap. I followed up with a coat of Leggy Legend and Autumn People, dabbing each immediately after putting it on my nails. Two coats of clear coat helped mesh all of that together and blur the edges a bit. Finally, I locked everything in with a coat of Seche Vite.
All in all, I really like how this seriotype turned out. It has a little bit of a marble effect to it, which is pretty cool. I'm definitely keeping this on for at least another day. As far as the weekend goes, we're not going to talk about the fact that it's been raining since March. We're just not. I'm planning on a relatively chill weekend. Hope yours is too!
