essence "good girl BAD GIRL" - Once I Was An Angel (Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!)

Hey guys!

This week we're looking at magenta. I'm not sure I've hit the nail - not only not on the head, but at all. Anyway, here we go!

I thought this was a crackling polish, but turns out, it's actually meant to be a leather finish. Essence isn't too great with this type of polish, so after two coats the texture is mostly lost. No top coat here, of course.

Rival de Loop Young - night fever (Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!)

Hey guys!

This week we (or at least I am) are out to prove that black nail polish doesn't have to be just plain creme (not that that's not awesome). Here we go!

This is two coats. No top coat, since it is a sand polish. No, I still haven't got enough of these. If it placates you in any way, I'm sorry. I love the bits of colorful glitter in there, it makes it fun. And weirdly enough it kinda reminds me of Christmas. Let's not examine that too closely...

Barry M - Key Lime (Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!)

Hey guys!

Just before another week of my favorite series is over, I'm getting my submission for light green in.

Two coats and top coat here. You can make this a one-coater if you leave more polish on your brush!

essence - live, laugh & party and Catrice - LilacLike (Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!)

Hey guys!

I'm not even gonna say it, just gonna let you look...

Two coats of Catrice "LilacLike" as base. The glitter on top is from essence "live, laugh & party". This experiment took a wrong turn somewhere along the way... Anyway, the Catrice polish is super pretty. And, as you might be able to see, matt! I need to try layering "live, laugh & party" over something else. Something that will look a little less strange with it, perhaps.

essence - polka holga (Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!)

Hey guys!

How many times can I say that I'm super late before it gets really old? One more time, right?

Two coats and top coat here. Still some VNL, as they say, but good enough for me. This picture is with flash on, but it shows the color the most accurately out of all the photos I took. Imagine this with a tad more red to it.
