Barry M Coral

Hello my loves ♥

I've been busy lately, sorry for not posting so much anymore :/
I've been painting my nails everyday, as usual, and taking pictures as well, but the time to post it is a whole other story.
Barry M Coral is a very summery color, and since it's summer here in Brazil, so the color fits perfectly! Coral is a very nice color, it's pink but it isn't at the same time, it has traces of orange. It's a really great color, I love it. Right after I bought it I decided to wear it, for some reason the formula was very thin, so imagine my disappointment. Today I decided to try again, maybe I would have better luck, and I did. I don't know why but the formula changed, it's not so thin anymore, and two coats were enough, different from the first time, 4 coats and it was still not enough...
I decided to do a little experiment, let it dry by itself, with no topcoat, but I did not have the patience to let it dry, it took way too long, so I just put Seche Vite over it, and I was a happy bunny.

It's a lovely color, don't you think? :D

OPI DS Sapphire Stamping

Hey there ♥♥

I had this mani on my camera's memory card for a while now, I had this done about 3 or 4 days after I put Focus on, just cause I didn't want to take it off.
As you know Focus is a wonderful polish, the color is incredible. I usually don't wear polishes for more than a day, but Focus? I just didn't want to take it off, so to change it a bit I stamped over it with DS Sapphire and I used CK-04 stamping plate.

I liked this combo a LOT, which helped me keep Focus on for one more day.

Illamasqua Noble

Hello lovelies ♥

Sorry I've been so absent lately, but I'm back to school, and things have been a little crazy lately.
Illamasqua Noble is one of the best blue cream polishes I've ever worn. Noble has this sky blue color, that it's impossible not to love.
If you apply it VERY carefully you can easily get away with only one coat, but as you can imagine, I've used two, and one of Seche.

Perfect color, you all must agree with me.

Rainbow Stripes

Hey there ♥

Today's post is one big failure. I tried to copy a mani I saw on Tumblr, and as you can imagine, it didn't go as planned.
I used two coats of Illamasqua Scorch for my base in all my nails, then I put the striping tapes on all my nails and painted with the colors I needed. I had one accent nail in both hands, my ring finger. For the rainbow I used six polishes:
Colorama Gabriele
Illamasqua Gamma
Jordana Mellow Yellow
Revlon Posh
Illamasqua Noble
Colorama Noite De Gala
For the black polish I used Fantasy Makers Black Pearl.

As you can see huge failure. Despite the outcome I like the idea, and I'll probably try again someday.

Ninja Polish Sapphire Dreams

Hello ♥♥♥

Sapphire Dreams is such a pretty blue, and we all know how much I love blue.
Sapphire Dreams is a blue with loads of shimmer and some flecks, I think I saw flecks anyway :D
I used two coats of SD and one coat of Seche.

Illamasqua Stance

Hello there ♥

I've been trying to make this post for SO long, but every time I've worn this polish and tried to take pictures of it I failed. My old camera just couldn't capture the actual color.
Yesterday I was looking through my stash to pick a polish to wear and I saw Stance. I thought I should put it on, since I have a new camera. I had to poke around my camera to see if I could find a way to capture the true color, AND I DID. I was pleasantly surprised to see that I was able to take pictures and get the actual color of the polish.
Back to the polish, Stance is a purple based pink polish, some might say it's a cream, but it's a jelly, and I think you can see it clearly in my pictures. Two coats as usual and one coat of Seche.

This is a wonderful polish, and the color is so pretty. Illamasqua became my favorite polish brand and I haven't hidden my love for it. What's your favorite Illamasqua polish?

Picture Polish Focus

Hello ♥♥

Today's polish is one of the most beautiful polishes I've ever worn, and I'm not a pink polish fan.
Focus was created by Sheila, from Pointless Cafe. Focus has these flecks in it, and I can't describe it, but it's amazing. Here's how it's described by Picture Polish:
 Focus is a red/violet saturn creme with a stunning mix of silver/blue micro sparks for that extra special touch!
I used only two coats of it, and one coat of Seche so it would dry fast.

Is it perfect, or is it perfect? :D
