Glitz and glam

I have such a pretty polish to show you guys. Etude houses magic kiss #2 from this summers limited edition bling in the sea range. I wasn’t going to buy magic kiss till my student loan had come through, but whilst browsing I found the site had taken it off :O. The horror. It got me all in a flap that I would miss out on them, so I popped over to ebay and brought the two from the collection I wanted. Considering it came from Taiwan delivery didn’t take long at all.

glitz and glam with etude hous and opiI apologise for the lighting; I wasn’t at home with my light tent or lights.

This is 3 coats of magic kiss by itself. I did think maybe it would be a dupe for Deborah Lippmann mermaids kisses, but the base is a couple of shades lighter. If layered over the right pink, then it would look like mermaids kisses. Two layers of seche vite was used to smooth it out.

To highlight the larger magenta hexagons I used O.P.I’s My address is Hollywood. Silly me hadn’t got around to using it. The shimmer in it is fantastic in the sun. You know me I’m all about the shimmmmmmer.

opi my address is hollywoodThe rhinestones are from a ridiculously expensive nail wheel I purchased from H&M. Now I will share  a  flaw of mine: Straight lines. When I try to draw a straight line it doesn’t happen. Naturally you go to the ruler next, well then you get a straight line at an angle. It baffled my art teacher, and myself. This is why all my studded and rhinestone lines are either wonky or straight just off centre, I’m guessing. This is a prime example here haha.

Thank you 🙂
