Strippy McStrip Stripe Na...

792

This is my first time trying striping tape! I decided to get one from Born Pretty Store to see if we would get along and I’m pleased to report we’ve become good friends. I’ve purchased a set of ten rolls from eBay here for an absolute bargain of 99p so prepare for more stripy nails in the future.

Leaping leopards

1 PC063297

I started off with a base of OPI My Vampire Is Buff and did the leopard print in Essie Where’s My Chauffeur? and Wet N Wild Wild Shine Red Red.  I sealed everything in with Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat.

Bond. James Bond.

Revlon Elusive 1

Revlon Elusive is a black base with blue glitter. This is another polish I picked up at Target not too long ago, I don’t think I’ve actually seen it anywhere else unless it’s just been sold out or something. I’m not sure if it was meant to be matte but it dried to a satin matte finish and I liked the way it looked so I added a matte top coat on top of it instead of a shiny one. The formula was good, it was nice and opaque and the black base didn’t hide the glitter which was nice. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Sloth 5

Sloth is from the 7 Deadly Sins of Summer collection from Nostalgic Nail Lacquer. Sloth has orange, burgundy and copper glitter. This is a pretty awesome glitter. The formula was beautiful – not too thick and not too thin – and I only needed to dabble just a little bit to get glitter placed where I wanted. If I let Sloth thicken a bit I could easily wear it without layering but I like to layer.

Ob 336c99 bad apple 3d arkansas over chg tongue chic 5

Bad Apple 3D Arkansas is a blue duochrome with a shift to dark blue and purple. In its lightest it almost looks like turquoise, it’s very beautiful! I’ve applied one coat over China Glaze Tongue & Chic which is dark emerald/teal shimmer. The formula was easy to apply but not very pigmented. I would need three coats for full coverage so I’ve layered it over darker nail polish. Dark or black polish makes the duochrome effect to stand out much more and you’ll need just one coat of 3D Arkansas.

Charla3

This is Zoya Charla, and she is outstanding!  Magical!  This is sort of similar to Color Club Metamorphosis, but they are definitely not dupes of each other.  Charla has large glass flecks and a duochrome in the base that flashes green (not blue/purple like in Metamorphosis).  I love blue and teal polishes, so I am very happy to have both of these beauties! =)

Caviar Collection

Dance Legend Zebrasoma is a cool blue jelly loaded with micro hexes and squares in black and white.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.  I absolutely adore this one! Shown is two coats of Zebrasoma.

I Love Nail Polish Reminisce is a bright green that shifts to a deep teal then blue. The finish is seriously chrome. I wore this one out and got stopped three times…I kid you not. Again, I used three coats.

Liquidus Blue Diamond Turquoise is a deep glossy teal.  So beautiful!  As a true jelly polish, you’ll want to apply thin coats and be patient while each coat dries so you can build up to a rich color.  Here, I’ve used three thin coats, but you could do two if you’d like, but you’ll have more visible nail line.  I used Out the Door top coat with this swatch.  In real life, the visible nail line isn’t nearly as noticeable as it is in the photos under the bright lights!

As if in space

Bluefinal

You Are NOT My Nemesis has a clear base with blue shimmer, silver and teal hexes and large teal diamond shaped glitters. This is two coats over Essie Licorice. Check out that shimmer. Very pretty! It makes the black base look navy blue! I love that effect.
