Oceania






My base color is Manhattan 36L, a duochrome shimmer shifting from light blue to aqua. I used three coats for the pictures. Something didn't seem to be right with this polish, in tthe pictures with the topper you can see, that it just melted away under the other polish, producing these weird wrinkles on my nails...





The glitter topper is Candeo Oceania, a clear base filled with white, grey and aqua hexes. I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.













 Candeo polishes don't seem to be produced anymore.

26 Great Nail Art Ideas: Insects and/or Bugs








For this week, the challenge theme is insects. I don't like most insects, they just have too many legs for my liking. But I really like butterflies, they're just beautiful! So butterfly it is for this challenge.





As base color I used three coats of a multichrome Enchanted Polish. I can't tell you which one it is, it came without a name tag, and I bought it so long ago, I just can't remember the polishes I ordered back then. But it shifts from magenta over copper to gold and contains holo glitters, so it might be I Am The Walrus.





For the stamping I used MoYou London Black Night and Pro Collection plate 05. As usual, I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.
