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!

...And don't forget to check out @Beadshopgirl's Nail Stamping Thread for stamping inspiration! ❤️

Vesper is definitely my least favorite as well, especially considering it swatched like this (lone one on the bottom right):

I know one coat on paper isn't a perfect representation of a color, but I test combos this way pretty frequently and I've never had one change so drastically with a second coat before. There was no hint of muddy brown at all 🤨

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown - Thanks for sharing your swatch!  That is a gorgeous color!  How disappointing...😞

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown I'm laughing because I get a weird sort of joy from swatching my polishes on paper and just admiring them 😂.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@CookieGirl1 

I love looking at them this way too 😅 I have swatch sticks for all of my polishes, but still enjoy testing them out this way before a mani...weirdly, I feel like it usually helps me get a better idea (not always though, apparently lol)

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown Beautiful rainbow!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Mellmars1185 

Thanks so much! 🌈

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

More Cupcake? Yes? How about a selection of shifty shades today? Yes, I thought so 😅

 

The shifts on most these are surprisingly difficult to pick up on film...one is subtle IRL, but the rest are quite vivid, so I collaged a bunch of pics together for this one to show off multiple angles and light sources. I figured 7 pics in one post is a bit much, even for me 😅

 

Three coats for all, none were fussy, I just don't like visible nail lines and wanted full coverage. 

 

Right hand:

Keratoconus Awareness (pinky, middle, index) is a red jelly base with green to gold shifting shimmer, and at just the right angle, I can even see a touch of purple. 

 

LA Lluvia (ring, thumb) is a lavender jelly base with pink/gold/green shifting shimmer

Left hand:

Moongate (thumb, ring) is an aqua jelly with pink to gold shimmer. Three coats, though I swear I must have missed a coat on my ring, as it's still super sheer/visible nail line-y, way moreso than my thumb.

 

All Tide Up is a dusty lavender/grape, more creamy in texture than the rest, with a subtle teal shimmer.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown - All the colors are great! 💖💖💖  Color combination-wise, I love the aqua and purple on your left hand! 💙💜

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Titian06 

Thank you! It's hard to go wrong with purple and aqua 💖

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Oooooh, the base colors and the shift on your right hand is gorgeous @RGbrown! I need to check if I have those in my reds and purples. 🤔 And how can you not love the mermaid vibes from the mani on your left hand?!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi 

Thanks so much! Cupcake has some lovely shifters! 💖

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown These shades are so beautiful! I need these!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Mellmars1185 

Thanks so much! Cupcake has some really nice polishes ❣️

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

A collection of sparkly Cupcake polishes for today

 

Right hand, Blue Tourmaline and Garnet

Holo glitter bombs in the best possible way ❣️ Blue tourmaline is filled with blue and green holo glitter (with a pinch of gold maybe?), and Garnet is packed with red and purple holo glitter. Both are stunningly blinding and easy two coaters.

Left hand, Water You Doing? and Plum Perfect

Smooth and easy linear holos with a very vibrant rainbow. If you have a good holo in either of these shades already, I won't say you need them, but if you don't? Cupcake holos are amazingly strong and worth the outlay! Two more easy two coaters.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown, the Cupcake glitter and holos really come alive in your photos. They really do a nice job with their polishes. Nothing like a little sparkle to brighten up the day. 💅

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi 

Thanks so much! ❣️ Sparkle is always a fun accessory 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown Cupcake is such a fabulous brand, I only own one polish but it's seriously one of my favorites. Maybe I'll do a mani in that color

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@QueenMarceline 

Yes, Cupcake is amazing! Which one do you have?

 

@Mellmars1185 

Not to enable, buuuuut...if you do browse their site, CPLOVER takes 20% off. They've also got the Glisten & Glow top coat, if you maybe wanted to try it 😁 Check out their bundles too, they're a great value at $10/bottle instead of $13!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown I own a color called Chicago, it's a medium-hot pink with some purple undertones and holographic shimmer. Quite beautiful. I was drawn to this while making an order a whiiile back on a nail polish retailer (I forget what it's called but they sell mostly indie polishes) and I think I splurged on it because I love packaging and product names that are sentimental or special to me. I was drawn to the "cupcake" cutesy polishes during my first order but I decided to skip it but the second time when I saw this color in this name (the city where I'm originally from) I just had to get it. I'm super impressed with their quality.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@QueenMarceline 

Chicago is a gorgeous polish! 💖

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown Thank you! I took note of Glisten and Glow. This would be a good time to take advantage!
