Today I'd like to show you the vibrant Silken Cord from Essie. This is such a gorgeous coral red that is perfect for spring (which officially starts tomorrow here!) As expected the formula is creamy and easy to apply.
Two coats - no topcoat
Taken in my lightbox which detracts a bit from its shininess
I was kindly sent this gorgeous bottle of polish from USANailsOnline and I'm delighted to show off this amazing bottle of holographic flakiness! Fame & Fortune is from the Backstage Pass collection.
Look at those flakies!!!
This is one coat over Silken Cord.
In fact I enjoyed this combo so much I made it into a pendant!
Today I'd like to share this pretty pink from OPI's Dutch collection. Kiss Me on My Tulips is a vibrant blue based pink which is very pigmented and opaque in two coats. The formula is easy to use and dries quickly. This is one of the new plates from Bundle Monster and the image is very detailed and fine. I thought it transferred ok but it was necessary to clean the plate between each nail.
Base colour: OPI Kiss Me on My Tulips
Nail plate: BM-315 Stamp colour: China Glaze 2030
Topped with Essie Good to Go
I recently bought one of Bundle Monsters plate holders. This is a fabulous investment. Until now I had been using a credit card holder but with wriggling the plates in and out it was practically falling apart. I love how this folder is robustly made. It has a zip closure which means nothing can fall out and the little pockets have a cutout so it's easy to pull a plate out. There is heaps of storage and each pocket can store two plates.
The cost of the holder was US$14.99 plus US$4.00 for shipping - so a pretty good bargain!
