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!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Titian06, thank you! Purples always make for a good mani.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi So pretty! I like the four dots on your index. It brings the whole look together beautifully 💗

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Mellmars1185, thank you! I considered adding dots to the other nails but decided to just keep it this way. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi  Love this berry mani! Leisel's very pretty on its own, with pretty good coverage in 4 coats for a sheer topper. 💜

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@WinglessOne, thank you. Leisel is such a pretty color. 😍 I will have to try it over a white base and a black base to show it off as a topper. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Purples and berries are a great way to welcome fall! Fabulous!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @RGbrown! I love purples and berries. They’re great year round but will see even more use in the cooler seasons. 💜 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Very cute, @itsfi.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@CookieGirl1, thank you. A quick and easy peasy mani with some pretty colors - I’m down with that! 😀 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Forcing my 5 newest polishes to somehow kinda sorta work together. 
 
Indirect overcast daylight through a window.Indirect overcast daylight through a window.Used flash to show the holo in Everyday I'm Shovelin'.Used flash to show the holo in Everyday I'm Shovelin'.
Details: 
Spoiler
Everything is 3 coats, though a couple might’ve been okay at 2. 
 
Thumb: KBShimmer Everyday I’m Shovelin’. An icy aqua blue > purple > royal blue multichrome loaded with random holo glitter (KBS calls it micro flakes) that flashes rainbows at all angles in nearly all types of light. Any glitter that looks gold in my first (non-flash) photo is actually holo. I can’t believe I had doubts about this one while awaiting package delivery. I kept thinking it might be underwhelming or too similar to something I already have. I was so wrong: it’s my favorite of these 5 polishes. It speaks directly to my love of winter. 
 
Index: KBShimmer My Fla-vor-ite Color. Grape with an aqua blue shimmer shift that, in some lighting at certain angles, pulls magenta, fuchsia, and turquoise. Easily one of my favorite purples in my polish collection. This was fine at 2 coats, but a 3rd coat deepened and enhanced the grape. 
 
Middle: Emily de Molly Meet Me in the Dark. Dark burgundy jelly base full of iridescent blue, pink, orange, and green flakes. It was fine at 2 coats, but I added a 3rd for extra flakes. It's Mardi Gras on my nails. This polish has the same obnoxious round brush that Cirque Colors uses; I need to see if KBS/G&G brushes will work with EdMs. 
 
Ring: KBShimmer Hidden Potential. A copper and plum multichrome that shifts through nearly all colors of the rainbow at various angles. I especially love its teal and blue shift. This polish is very appropriately named. Possibly my second favorite of this bunch. 
 
Pinky: Cirque Colors Groove Thing. A chartreuse > grassy green shifter with a persistent shimmery flip of gold and coppery red. Theres also some random holo glitter in the mix, but its sparse. I shouldve swapped out Cirques round brush before applying this polish: the formulas very watery (but the colors still quite pigmented), making Groove Thing slightly hard for me to control without a flat paddle brush. The end result is worth the trouble, though. I shoehorned this green into my very purple/blue toned mani, forcing Hidden Potential to bridge the 2 color stories, because I couldn’t wait to see Groove Thing in action. 
KBShimmer’s multichrome formula kinda goops up along my nail tips, no matter how thin a layer I apply. I can’t call it overall goopy, and I had no problem getting even coverage across whole nails. 🤷‍♀️ I did my right hand first, and the goopy edges are most obvious on my right index and ring fingers where I tried to level out polish while capping those tips. By the time I got to my left hand, I’d figured out it's best (for me) to cap the tip before painting the nail with these polishes. I’ll have to remember that next time I use one of these; it's not an issue with most other brands' multichromes I've used. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@WinglessOne  I love all these together!! Hidden potential is such a great colour!! Your collection must be really growing!! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thanks @ather ! I still have more lipstick than nail polish but, at this point, that just means I have waaaay too much lipstick. 😂 I now have exactly 300 nail polishes, based on how many swatches I've done. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@WinglessOne  Wow. 300!! I have maybe 100. When I was swatching mine my husband was like and how much is each bottle. I told him I don’t need his negativity in my life. He got the hint 😂

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@ather  🤣 

 

100 is impressive! It took me decades to accumulate around 80 polishes; I discovered that while pulling together all my old (pre-covid) bottles, mostly Essies and Revlons. Now I wonder how much nail polish the average person (who regularly paints their nails) has. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@WinglessOne  I agree. I have a friend who only has a few. But I like to do different colours all the time. I usually change mine once a week!! I wonder how much people normally have also! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@ather @WinglessOne - @itsfi  and @RGbrown were discussing the large increases in their collections this year the other day, and I jokingly said my collection increased from zero to 30 in one month!  I, however, don't consider myself the "normal" person due to this thread! 🤣  I already have more nail polish now than I did years ago before I stopped and tossed everything.  So eventhough my 30 is a drop in the bucket compared to 100, 300, or 1400, it's still a lot for a normally conservative person like me! 🤭

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Titian06  I think 30 is doing great! I have been only doing my own nails for 4.5 years now. I use to go get manicures all the time but when we got posted to a small town and I was on Mat leave I thought I should cut some of my expenses!! So I have been building my stash for a while! For the longest time I only had a handful of colours! And I also feel like I go through buying and not buying times. I’m sure your 30 will multiply!! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

LOL - @ather !  I'm sure it will, but the good thing is it's a lot less expensive than my yarn addiction! 🤣🧶🧶🤭

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@WinglessOne Spectacular shades. They are all really unique and pretty. You thumb is really catching my eye! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @Mellmars1185 ! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I remember liking your initial swatch of "Flavorite" when you showed it and I REALLY like it on your nails.  That's my kind of color!
