Gumdrops

 Opi gumdrops candy is dandy 2

This is one of the nicest textured collections I’ve seen, there’s a good mix of colours and they’re quite sparkly in real life, more so than on camera! I always find textured polishes so easy to apply too and these are no different. They dry down to a matte finish, but you can add a thick top coat to make them shine if you prefer.

Nicole by OPI Candy Is Dandy is another favourite, a sweet pink shade with silver glitter and larger iridescent hex glitters. 2 coats.

Acrylic application is actually a lot about the size brush you use. The brush sizes vary, usually in increments of 2. So 2, 4, 6, 8, 24! I’ve never seen a size 24 brush in person, but searching online has revealed that they do exist. Has anyone used that size? I’d love to get some nail tech chatter going about the preferred size, manufacturer, and shape of brush to apply acrylics!

Mastering acrylics hasn’t come to me yet. I imagine it will take lots of practice! I have laid a set on a friend in the salon though, and so far, they’re holding up! It’s been about a week. Here’s what they looked like after application and polishing was complete:

Layla Coral Glam 2

Hi guys! Today I have another one of the awesome Layla holo polishes to show you, yay!! This one is called Coral Gam and it’s a kind of tan/pink base color with holo rainbows like whoa. I didn’t think much of this in the bottle, I only bought it because I hoard holos like no ones business. On the nail this was punching me in the eyes with it’s rainbows of win much like all the other awesome holos I’ve tried from Layla.

Today’s mani is all about the colour peach! I used three coats of Barry M – Peach Melba on most nails and Catrice – I Scream Peach! for some accent nails. The circles are from Konad plate m65 and I stamped with Konad Special Nail Polish in White.
