ILNP: Dreaming In Violet - Offset Cloud Manicure

Swatch & Nail Art

   My could manicure obsession continues!  This time I switched the color layering up by offsetting the "bumps" of the clouds.  It's a subtle difference but I like it!

  For this manicure I used a base of ILNP Dreaming in Violet, my one Pantone orchid-inspired polish... as of yet!  This is a really nice pinky-purple holographic polish.  It is linear, and stronger than what my photos show, of course.  While Dreaming in Violet's formula is very good (I only needed 2 coats!) there was just one thing I was let down about...

China Glaze Sweet Hook - and sweets!

   Hello everyone!  I had a really busy weekend because I had my first Bridal/Wedding Shower to attend!  Well, not the first one I've ever been to, but the first one where I was the girl unwrapping the prezzies.  ;D  It was tons of fun, and I made chocolate fudge, deviled eggs, and... something that I threw together and don't know what to call! to take to the party.  You can see what I made after the jump!

   First though, China Glaze Sweet Hook.  This is what I had on my nails!  Sadly these swatches were done right after I peeled 18 hard boiled eggs, so my cuticles were not the happiest, but oh well.  The other thing is that I took these pics in sunlight, and the color got washed out.  The polish in more purple than this in person, and a little darker on the nail than in the bottle.

  This is two coats and all I can say is I love it!  A "bright" pastel lilac shade.  No, it isn't the most unique bird in my collection but the color is so soft and pretty with a glossy shine that I adore!  It was easy to work with and 2 coats was perfection for coverage.  =)
