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

Wow, it's the first of December. How did the year fly by? To start off the month, I went with LynBDesigns December - Saggitarius from the brand's zodiac collection. It's described as a "muted purple base with blue shimmer and blue to purple to red to gold shifting UCC flakies". Three thin coats.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi  Beautiful! This is a shade I could see myself wearing regularly! 💜

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @Shosh85! It's really such a pretty shade - I've had the color on for a week now and am debating whether to use it again or go for another polish. Ive meant to switch up my mani's more frequently this month in an effort to get through more polishes but I've been liking this shade too much to change it. 💜

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi   Purple is always beautiful 💜💜

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

So true @Cissy63! The lighter pale base is beautiful and I love the effect the flakies add to the look and feel of the polish. 💜

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi 

Purple and sparkle always make the best combos, this is fantastic! 💜💜💜

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Yes @RGbrown, purple and sparkle make a great pairing! This is such a pretty polish; I have a couple of nail art ideas I want to try with it. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Maybe it's because of the name ️ but I love this extra @itsfi 😉

I hope you can incorporate it into more looks, it's a very cute one! But understandable if you get distracted by your other gorgeous polishes 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@CynthieLu, I hear that! The details matter! 😀 This is a gorgeous color. I was trying to find another light or pale blurple in my stash to pair with this one but that search hasn't been fruitful in that regard. I have, however, found some greys and purples that could work out well with this pretty Sagittarius shade. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

So Beautiful @itsfi ! 😍 I haven’t seen any polish from that collection that I don’t like. All the ones you got are gorgeous!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

She has so many beautiful polishes @Saradestin! 😍 If I have more time this month, I may try to use this as a base at another time, for some stamping, or incorporate it in some other form of nail art. 💅 I tried stamping with a silver but it didn't show up as boldly as I'd hope. Maybe a white or black polish to do the stamping would work better. We'll see if I have the patience for it or if I get distracted by another polish. 😂

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I also tried to stamp with a silver polish and it was a fiasco @itsfi 😅. It was regular polish so I blamed it on that 😜

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Saradestin, I use Revlon Molten Magic which is a great silver for stamping - learned of it from @RGbrown! I think the flakies might have competed with the color. The other thing may be that I left the polish on the plate too long before picking it up because it looked more faint on my stamper than it normally does. I'll see about giving it another try. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi  @Saradestin 

I definitely second Revlon Molten Magic! Or another smooth chrome type (Revlon is discontinued; last I checked, it was pretty widely available on eBay and Amazon, but I suppose that won't always be true lol. I'm sure there are others out there though!)

 

Here's a quick shot that I think helps illustrate the difference in the two.

Left is Revlon, just a tiny dab smeared out super thin. You can see the color and coverage is nearly completely smooth, like the silver is a liquid chrome. Trixie, on the right, also just a tiny bit that's been brushed thin, breaks down into a clear base with tiny silver particles. It's a neat effect, I've done it with a similar gold, but if you're looking for full coverage, chrome looking silver, it's not the one to pick.
