Fire Opal

This time I want to share a quick experiment, sorry for the lazy looking "artwork". I've had a mani with Color Club "Sparkle And Soar" from their Take Wing -collection since Midsummer Eve. Working in the garden has been hard on my nails, so the polish was looking very sad. I had to make a quick repair for a sudden visit, so I just added to the old mani.

I love Swarovski's Fire Opal crystals, their vivid and sparkling colours. And there I got the idea: I used China Glaze neon polish "Japanese Koi" on the tips, about half the lenght of the nail. Over that one more coat of "Sparkle And Soar", top coat - and that's it!

In the photo I'm holding my earrings with bicones in Fire Opal, so you can see the resemblance. This mani is intriguing, looks a bit like duochrome. The neon polish layer shows in the middle fingers, but not in the pinkie and pointing finger. :) Love this mani, I have to do it properly some other time.

Midori Feathers

After a very, very long time I'm back with some nail art. Thank You for waiting, my dear reader.
I have been thinking whether to continue this blog or not. As I told earlier, I have psoriasis and it's affecting my nails, too. Now one bad phase is behind me and I will go on posting. :)

This is Zoya "Midori" polish, three coats, and some feathery water decals. I liked this mani a lot. As my nails are very bumpy, I use ridge filling base coat (this time it was by Nubar). And of course top coat; after Midori I applied a layer of Poshé quick drying top coat, then after putting on the water decals I added one coat of simple supermarket top coat, Rimmel.
