A Midsummer Night’s Skittle

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

I had big plans for my nails for Midsummer back in June, unfortunately I had a nasty cold so I had to stay home and celebrate on my own, but at least I had a fun manicure to look at =)

I decided to do a Skittles manicure with colors that more or less matched the dress I was supposed to wear.

I decided to do the colors in the reverse order on my right hand.

The polishes L-R: Lovie No. 93, H&M Bella’s Choice, KleanColor Mango, China Glaze Gaga For Green, China Glaze Dance Baby

I think I applied about three coats of each polish, Mango needed four to get even.

And here’s a shot with the dress:

I’m all for happy colors now!

Lovie No 93

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

I wanted a color with a summer feel on my nails, so my choice fell on Lovie no 93. I’ve never tried this brand before, apparently it’s Greek, and I got it att ÖoB of all places (Swedish store Överskottsbolaget) for 39 SEK. It’s an orange coral shade, and my first impression is quite good. The brush isn’t too wide, the formula was nice and went on smooth. I applied three coats and then topped it with Seche Vite. There was a bit of VNL but I don’t know if a fourth coat would have made any difference. The color isn’t quite as bright as it may appear on the photos, but you definitely notice it! I’m guessing it’s quite similar to Eyeko Coral Polish, if you have that one.

More sunlight!

And after a few days I wanted something more on my nails, so I put on a sticker from Depend. All in all, this is a manicure that makes me happy when I look at it!
