Subtle Newspaper

Hi all :)

Still very busy, so I don't have the time to be creative :/ I miss it and will probably allow myself to take the time this week :)

This mani was just something quick I did a bit over a week ago.. Two polishes that instantly made their way into my top 10 of polishes.. Not that I have a top 10 defined, but these two would def be in it!

Unfortunately I only had the chance to take pics the night I did them, so in artificial light.. So these pics doesn't do the polishes justice and my hands look a bit creepy.. haha

Nubar Indigo Illusion and Collection 2000 Midnight Shine with very faint newspaper print..
Before I did this mani I actually wore the same combo without the newspaper print for a couple of days, but hadn't had any time to jazz it up..
I decided I wasn't done wearing that combo even though it had chipped, so I took it off and did the same mani again :p That is a VERY rare incident for me! haha.. That just tells how much I loooove these polishes!

Indigo Illusion is a multichrome and it's jsut amazing! Most of the time it's this green-blue-grey-ish base with a purple shift! Green/purple is my fave color combo! hah.. And you don't have to do a lot of wiggling with your fingers before you see bright green and gold.. Simply stunning and I spent a good deal of time looking at my nails :p

Midnight Shine is a purple-ish grey and therefore matches this one a lot! And it's very opaque!

Oh and the newspaper print was just a quick experiment.. I didn't want to cover up the polishes a lot and didn't have time to figure out what kind of subtle nail art to do, so somehow I thought of this.. I tried it on a swatch on a nail wheel first (on a random color already there) and it was easy and everything.. But it really didn't show up much on these colors.. But that kind of made me like it even more, because you could see different parts of the newspaper print with the different shifting in colors! AWESOME!!

When I took this mani off I thought it was fun to see a slightly different base color in Indigo Illusion and then all those tiny colorful specks.. Don't know if it makes sense, but I included a pic :p

And here they are...:

Allright that was a VERY wordy post.. That shows how much I looove these polishes! haha

It's so sad that I didn't get the chance to take pics of this mani in natural light, so I could show you the real awesomeness of them.. I would have to do that at some point! :D

Have you ever fallen this bad for a polish as I just did with these two? ;)

Have fun and take care =)
