Theme Week: UnTried Polish – Black Holo Glitter

This is the last of the posts for the UnTried Polish Theme Week.  It was a great success for me, 15 polishes checked off!  This mani is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear In the Spotlight and Wet ‘n’ Wild Kaliedoscope (not untried) over China Glaze Cosmic, with a base of WnW Black Creme. Accent Nail is WnW Silvivor with the two glitters on top. Cosmic wasn’t as glittery as I was hoping from the bottle, the base was too thick to let the colors come through. So I had to bling it up…maaaybe too much, lol.

Theme Week: UnTried Polish – Orange Glass-Fleck

Woohoo! Two more untries down. I loooove anything nautical, so I bought the entire Anchors Away collection. Tried Lighthouse, White Cap, and Hey Sailor earlier this week and enjoyed them all.

My mani is China Glaze Life Preserver with Wet n’ Wild on the accent. This is two coats of Life Preserver, I would have done three for no visible nail line (VNL) but it was sooo late and I wanted to sleep.

This polish is a bit darker than it photographs, its a teesy bit more red-orange than yellow-orange…think old school life preserver color that you see on ferries and stuff. I wasn’t sure how it would look with my skin tone, but it is playing nice.

Only one coat of the WnW on my ring fingers.
Topped with Seche Vite.

Please excuse the tip wear…I type violently and I was too lazy to tip wrap, lol.
