IBD – Just Gel Polish – Scarlett Obsession

Hello,
today I have swatches of IBD Just Gel Polish Scarlett Obsession to show you.

IBD Scarlett Obsession

Scarlett Obsession is a really stunning dark red with red shimmer.

In the sunlight it looks brighter and more vibrant. I guess it’s because of this gorgeous shimmer.

The formula and application of Scarlet Obsession was good. The polish didn’t pool around the cuticles and I didn’t notice shrink back. It is opaque with two to three coats without streaks.

Overall, Scarlett Obsession is a beautiful, elegant deep red perfect for Valentine’s Day manicure.

Thank you for coming!

Shimmery Gradient Nails

Hello,

today I have my Shimmery Gradient Nails to show you.

Unicorn Nails

Back in the old days when I was painting my nails a lot with regular nail polish I loved to wear gradient nails, but I never before made this kind of gel manicure. This is my first attempt.

Sparkly Nails

As a base colour I used IBD JGP Seashell Pink and EzFlow TruGel Magic & Mischief for the tips. Blue Gel Polish is applied with a makeup sponge instead of brush. It is an easy way to create a gradient. Over the blue part I applied very fine glitter to add some shimmer. On some of the nails I applied silver rose nail stickers.

I was very careful with the sponge application to not create too much mess around the cuticles. I was afraid that I will not cleanup properly before each curing and after that it is too late. I focused so much that in the end there was nearly no need for any cleanup at all. I didn’t mix the pink and the blue for a middle part of a gradient but I will definitely try to do it next time because it makes colour transition prettier.

Blue Sparkly Nails with LeChat Perfect Match MOOD – Skies The Limit

Hello,
today I have photos of my recent gel polish nail design to show you.

Perfect Match Skies The Limit TruGel Magic & Mischief

To make these sparkly blue nails I used:
– on the middle finger nail – EzFlow TruGel Magic & Mischief. It’s really lovely pastel blue. If you want to see my other post with swatches of this gel polish click HERE,
– on the ring finger nail I dabbed two coats of transparent blue glitter. Usually to cover a whole nail with a glitter I apply three thin coats of glitter mixed with a top coat. Here I used only two and it doesn’t look as good as three coats,
– on my thumb nail, index finger nail and pinkie I am wearing LeChat Perfect Match MOOD – Skies The Limit.

LeChat Perfect Match MOOD Skies The Limit

Skies The Limit is a thermo gel polish which reacts to temperature. I am totally in love with this polish. It applies like a dream. It is completely opaque with two thin coats without streaks. Depending on the temperature it changes colour from light turquoise when it’s warm to a prussian blue (I was searching for how to call this colour and I think that would be right name for it, but I am not sure) sort of colour when it’s cold.

I had a huge problem taking a good photos of this gel polish during the colour transition because it’s changing so fast. My hands were all the time cold so catching the darker shade was easy, but then I was trying to keep the hands in warmth so the polish would change to turquoise. As soon as I was going out to make a photos in a decent daylight the colour was changing back. I don’t know how girls which swatch this kind of polishes make so beautiful swatches while colour is transitioning 🙂 My just didn’t want to show up like I wanted and when I wanted but as soon as I packed my camera back I had beautiful two toned nails ready for a snapshots.

Ok, so here is the photo of Skies The Limit when it is cold.

Here is the photo when Skies The Limit is warm with a cold nail tips.

To add some finishing touches to this mani on the index finger nail over the Skies The Limit I added blue holographic stars and two shades of blue glitter. It shines AND changes colour 🙂
