Peacocky

Decidedlydeciduous

Peacocky is sure to be a hit with you guys! It is a multicolored jewel glitter topcoat with red, pink, gold, and blue glitter in it. For this swatch, I layered two coats of Peacocky over OPI Rumple’s Wiggin. It is a very dense glitter and a lot of fun! No application problems — it just went on smoothly for a bit of instant bling.

Twenty Ten is small square red glitter, microfine and small blue hex glitter in a sheer black base. This color was one of my first ever made, it has had a few versions over the last couple of years and I am quite happy with this final one.

The base is a very sheer black so you will need 3 coats for a squishy look, or apply 1 coat over a black base color for a more solid dark black look.

Electric Cinder

This color is so amazing and so is the photograph!

I choose Orly Rock Candy to pair with OM’s “Cinder” pigment. Cinder is a dark smoky black with teeny tiny purple glitter flecks. This was actually the second franken I made with Cinder…the first being a FAIL. Not a huge fail, but still not what I wanted, and these pigments are so darn pretty they deserve nothing less than a 100% effort on my part! Rock Candy was a wise choice, and I only needed about a teaspoon of Cinder pigment.

Katniss, Girl on Fire

After re-reading the Hunger Games in the last couple of days, I was reminded that Katniss herself had her nails done for the interview directly preceding the beginning of the Games. In the book, Katniss says Cinna’s team decorates her by “painting flame designs on [her] twenty perfect nails.” So of course, I had to do a flame design.
