Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Due to some technical glitches with the original Show Me Your Nails Thread, I am starting a new thread with @vegchililover78's blessing (She says "hello," by the way!).

 

Please share your nail looks, nail art and manicures!

Wow, that's stunning @Saradestin ! What's the shade?

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@makeitup305 @Thank you! It is ILNP Mega X and I am obsessed with it! It makes rainbow-like reflections. It is really gorgeous 🌈 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Saradestin I've had that one on my wishlist but now it's going in the cart. So stunning!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

My green/blue box is overflowing, but not enough to warrant splitting them into two, so it's time for a little mismatched blue skittle mani 💙

 

Left hand, testing navy creams!

IMG_20211228_132240713_HDR.jpg

 

Thumb and index: Morgan Taylor Laying Low

True to my love for the brand, this was a super easy two coater that applied like a dream with no streaks or patchiness. It's perhaps the lightest here by maybe half a hair or so, but really, all of these are close enough to each other to count as the same shade, so formula and brush are the biggest distinctions. If you need/want a navy cream, this is my pick (it's from the fall collection, so I'm unsure of availability though...Sally's still had it quite recently, for half price no less).

 

Middle and pinky: Londontown Lakur Buckingham Blue

This is my first cream from Londontown, and I have to say, their formula and brush give MT a run for the money. This was also a super easy two coater, with zero application issues. Nearly indistinguishable from the MT, it's perhaps just a touch darker in shade, but I swear, the more I look, the less I can tell if that's true or not lol. Price is a huge factor for me (they're what, $16 or $17 for full size bottles?), which makes this my second choice personally, but I definitely still give the brand a thumbs up and would be happy to pick up more with a good sale!

 

Ring finger: Butter London Lock In

Ever so slightly dustier than the other two, but not really enough to be noticeable. This is one of Butter's mini bottles with a mini brush, which made application a little more difficult for me. The formula seems good as best I can tell, I still got it down in two coats, but a skinny brush always gives me trouble getting clean lines around my cuticles...I'd go for a full size bottle with the paddle brush if I had it to do over again.

 

The topper is one coat of China Glaze Make a Spectacle, with iridescent green to orange shimmer, and larger iridescent glitters in orange/gold and green/blue. Completely smooth with only one coat of top coat, and I'm digging on the color scheme, especially over the navy base. 

 

 

And moving into a blue-teal-grey mix on the right hand!

Pinky: Black Dahlia Lacquer Mystery 8

No-name from one of my mystery bags, this was a tad difficult to work with. One the first coat, I just thought I didn't have enough polish on the brush, and I dunno why my mind went there instead of "maybe it needs thinner" like it normally does, but on the second coat, it was apparent that thinner was needed after all. It applied a bit lumpy, and even dried with a few bubbles from its too thick state. Ah well, I've added thinner for next time and have higher hopes for it then! It's a pretty shade, a dark, slightly dusty denim, with subtle (very subtle) linear holo running through it.

 

Ring: Live Love Polish Juniper

Easy two coater, a deep blue-leaning teal holo with a fairly strong rainbow in better light than my phone can pick up...it's the strongest of the three holos I'm wearing. Easy application, even with a terrible skinny brush 😋

 

Middle: China Glaze She's So Extra Terrestrial

From their Halloween collection this year, this is a slightly lighter, slightly greener, dusty teal holo with a decently strong rainbow. Not quite as strong as LLP, but pretty good for a drugstore polish. Easy two coater, and I always watch CG new releases because they tend to have something a little different from some of the other mainstream brands, even if I'm not a huge fan of their brush (wide, but with square corners).

 

Index and thumb: Kiko Power Pro 208

A gorgeous steely teal gunmetal shade, super easy application, two coats with no streaks or patchiness. Lovely metallic finish and a nice paddle brush. Kiko doesn't have much in the way of shades that I don't have already, and what they do have is fairly basic, either creams or common shimmers, or else I'd shop there more often, but I've always been happy with most everything I've gotten from them, and their prices are nice, especially when having a sale.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown Both are absolutely stunning but I am living for that top navy nail look. 😍

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@QueenMarceline 

Thanks so much! 💙

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown, I am bookmarking your post. Those navy polishes are beautiful, and with the gorgeous topper too. It's so hard (well, for me, at least) to find a deep navy that doesn't show up black. I love how these navy polishes look like navy polishes. 😍

 

You know I love smokey blue-teal-grey shades (along with reds, and purples and blah...blah...blah...). Seriously though! So pretty. Especially the LLP and CG polishes.-

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi 

Almost blacks have their place, but I definitely prefer dark shades that don't wander into that "too dark to tell what color it is" territory too. These are all great choices! 

 

...and pinks and greens and silvers and oranges and... 🌈🤣💖

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Wow!! Gorgeous!!! ❤️❤️❤️💙💙💙

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Saradestin 

Thanks so much! 💙

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

All the blues look the same to me. 😄  I love the ones with the toppers, @RGbrown ! 😍

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Titian06 

They look the same to me too 🤣 Thanks so much! 💙

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown My favorite is the topper over the navy. Such a pretty style, especially for winter.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@makeitup305 

I really like this topper! I tend to go for purple/pink/blue/silver in my glitters, so this one has been a really nice change of pace for me 💚🧡

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown  Crazy how similar they are. Especially the blues. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@ather 

It is! I fully expected the blues to come out at least a little different from each other, but even IRL, I don't think anyone would ever be able to tell I'm wearing three different shades 🤪

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

A reindeer sighting ...

Zoya Amal is part of the brand's matte velvet line. It's a lovely classic red with red flakes. This was a gift and one I adore. 💝 It applies and dries as a soft matte; the top coat gives it the shine in the photo. 2 coats. 
 
Reindeer - Saw the reindeer nail art on IG [@enamelle] and thought it would be a fun one the kiddoes would get a kick out of. I really need to work on growing my nails next year; Rudolph here would have looked better on longer nails. Base color is Zoya Taylor, a light, warm-leaning beige creamy. Took 3 coats. Nail art colors - Zoya Cinnamon (for antlers), a light brown metallic with yellow and gold shimmers; Zoya Willa (for eyes), a black cream; and Zoya Amal (for the nose).
