Color Club Antiquated

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

Yay, I managed to do a post about a non-holographic polish! Here’s Antiquated from Color Club’s Foiled collection, it’s a champagne colored foil. I’m pretty sure I used two coats, and it dried fairly quickly.

The first photo is with the sun shining in through the window:

It has a beautiful shimmer in the sun.

And one in indirect light:

Here it looks more matte, and I like that look as well.

I wasn’t really sure if this color suited me, but I quite liked it anyway. But to be honest I got a bit tired of it after a few days, I want more colors now!

Color Club Perfect Mol-ten with some Mistletoe Kisses

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

Say hello to my shorter nails! I had a crack in one nail and a scratch along the tip of another, so I thought it was time to shorten them a bit. I felt a bit amputated at first, but now I’m used to it. My father-in-law was quite clear on what he thought looked best.. =)

So, this is the manicure I had last week before Christmas, it’s two coats of Color Club Perfect Mol-ten (which I wore alone for a few days at first), a cool green foil, and then I painted the tips with China Glaze Mistletoe Kisses, a green jelly with silver glitter in it, and then topped it with Seche Vite. There wasn’t much daylight to photograph in but I think I got some fairly decent pictures of it.

I’m not good at freehand, but as these colors are so close together, and there’s glitter as well I think I got away with it =)

When I first wore Perfect Mol-ten I thought it reminded me of something else, and I’m pretty sure it was China Glaze Cherish. It has a similar finish, but this one is a much cooler green. And this one is a lot easier to handle!

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas/Hannukkah/Holiday/Whatever =)

L.A. Girl Graphite

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Here’s yet another polish from L.A. Girl’s Metal collection, which I’ve only had good things to say about. And I’m not stopping now! Graphite is a dark grey foil with silver shimmer, and I love it in every way! The formula is fantastic and easy to get along with. I applied two coats and topped it with Seche Vite.

I took these photos under a construction light. It’s not the best lighting, but I’m trying out some options in my home while I wait for the sun to come back.

Do you have any L.A Girl polishes? What do you think of this brand? It’s definitely on my top 5 list when it comes to polishes.
