Outer Space Marble - A layering experiment

Hi guys! Today I'd like to show you a layering experiment I did a little while ago. I started with China Glaze First Mate, on top went Milani Cyberspace from the 3D Holographic collection, OPI Last Friday Night, Golden Rose #10 aaand... *gasp* ...matte topcoat. That's a mouthful. I really love the endresult, it looks like some kind of marble from outer space hahah. Quite interesting. Surprsingly Last Friday Night, which usually turns any polish into magic, was a bit unnecessary this time as it was hardly visible on top of Cyberspace. Golden Rose #10 on the other hand is just mind-blowing gorgeous! Pretty red flakies. In the bottle you can see them shifting from red to gold, to green and blue. But even after a zillion shots I wasn't able to capture the complete rainbow. A shame, because it's so pretty in real life!
I used many polishes to achieve this look, but surprisingly everything dried pretty well, because I only used one coat of each. And as I said, Last Friday Night could be left out the next time I do this. Have a great weekend everyone :)

OPI You Don't Know Jacques + Color Club Covered In Diamonds

Hi readers! The other day I showed you OPI You Don't Know Jacques. It's a very calm and subtle color, very beautiful, but I was curious to see it with just a little bit more sparkle. So here it is with a coat of Color Club Diamonds. I like the combination and love iridiscent glitter/flakies. They're sparkly enough to add a lot of magic to a dull mani but yet they're subtle. Sounds quite contrary, doesn't it? :P So a party for the eyes but too bad Covered In Diamonds has such a thick formula. It made my nails look thick and plumpy. And I guess another layer of matt topcoat over them won't help either, but I just had to see what it would look like mattified :) What do you think about this combo? Thanks for stopping by!

Interestingly dirty

Good morning everyone! Yesterday I posted Catrice's Welcome To The Jungle and today I layered it with Gosh Rainbow. I thought the flashes of orange in Rainbow's flakies could look interesting against the green gold shimmer of Welcome To The Jungle. And interesting it is, the outcome is a strange and dirty, but intruiging blend of colors, I haven't figured out if it's in a good or bad way, but it's got my attention for sure. Of course I couldn't just leave it without a layer of matt topcoat, the curiosity was way too big and now that it's mattified I'm actually kind of starting to like it, though I probably won't be repeating this look very soon. What about you guys, would you wear this?

China Glaze - First Mate + Gosh - Rainbow

Hello dear readers and new followers! Since I'm still enjoying my 4th of July mani from yesterday, I'll be showing you some older pictures today. Pictured is China Glaze's First Mate layered with the beautiful Gosh Rainbow. It was part of the prizes that I won with my flowered tips entry for the Get Inspired nail art contest, hosted by Sofie from Swaafie. Rainbow had been on my wishlist for a while, and though Gosh is sold here in the Netherlands, I'd never seen Rainbow anywhere. But then I saw it could be won in Sofie's nail art contest! So I entered and the rest is history... Enough talking, picture time! Gosh, I love flakies...

And a bonus pic for the matt lovers like myself! ;)

Thanks for stopping by!

Cute skittle

Hi lovely followers, today there are over 500 of you! I can't believe there are so many people following this little blog of mine! I couldn't even fill my wedding with this many people! Not that that has something to do with it or that I'm intending to get married soon, just saying 500 souls is a lot, haha. Thank you so much for reading Nailside and leaving your comments, it makes blogging so much fun! Okay, let's have a look at my NOTD then. (Pic heavy!) For this happy day I decided to do something happy, in a cute way. So I did a skittle in pastels. I suppose the pink on my thumb doesn't count as a pastel, but it fitted the rest so well :) The polishes I used, from my thumb to my pinky:

Essence - Let Me In Pink
Essence - No More Drama
Rimmel - Aqua Cool
China Glaze - For Audrey
Orly - Ancient Jade

And then flakies! add some 'Wooow', lol. This time I used Golden Rose #4

And just for fun a layer of matt topcoat, to see how it would look. After the pics I made it glossy again, because this time I actually liked it better shiny :)

Awesome sauce from Golden Rose: #4

Thanks for stopping by again!

Essence skittle

Hi everyone! For today's post I'd like to show you a skittle I made with five Essence polishes from the Colour&Go collection; Perfect Plum, Lime Up!, Trust In Fashion, Just Rock It! and Break Through. Though I don't do skittles very often, I do like them very much. It's so simple, and I love simple :) Just pick five matching colors and BOOM! Awesome result. Zero effort. And it's an efficient way to go through your untrieds. Though I liked my skittle plain, I just couldn't leave it alone. I layered it with a beautiful flaky polish from Golden Rose Scale Effects, #15, which came from my untried stash. It's so pretty! And yes, then I mattified it... I'm really starting to get predictable... Anyways, hope you like it and thanks for reading :)

Golden Rose Scale Effects - #15
