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

Aw, thank you @peculiarzmakeup very sweet 🥰

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I can mostly ignore Cirque; their prices are high for such a small bottle, and they just don't have much that speaks to me most of the time...but their jellies are my absolute downfall and I bet I wind up with most, if not all, of these. Sigh. Now to start watching for sales!

 

Glazed collection, launching tomorrow!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown oooh, I've hardly been on IG for the last couple of days so I hadn't seen this since they announced that a new collection would be coming!  I like Cirque.

@CookieGirl1 

They actually sent this via email lol, I couldn't tell you the last time I opened IG 😋

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Time for some bright color after my last set, candy style! My choices from the China Glaze Wonka collection plus a bonus Clionadh Wonka themed polish 🍬

 

China Glaze Pure Imagination: bright purple crelly with pink/orange shifting shimmer. My camera doesn't pick up the shimmer that well, but it is most definitely noticeable in real life. Two coats got me smooth and even coverage, nearly opaque, though I added a third to see if it got any richer or deeper, and maybe it did a little, but I'm not sure it was necessary. This is a gorgeous color, very easy to work with. 

 

China Glaze Noodle: dusty teal shimmer, somehow both bright and muted all at once. In some lights, the shimmer appears to have a blue to purple shift, though it's subtle and not likely something anyone but you would notice. Nearly one coater, very easy formula.

 

Clionadh I Want An Everlasting Gobstopper: clear base filled with silver (microflakies? large particle shimmer? not sure what exactly it is, but it's certainly sparkly ) and a generous dose of flakies in pink, red, purple, blue, green, and gold, and a pinch of holo as well. I was mostly sure I had full coverage at two coats, but did a third just to be sure. 

 

China Glaze For The Dreamers: deep berry jelly with super sparkly glitter. This one was a bit thick and gloopy, getting gummy almost immediately on the nail, but adding some thinner helped tremendously and made it much more workable. This one seemed to get very textured as it was drying, so much so that I watched a few swatch videos today just to see if anyone else thought it might have been intentional on CG's part to mimic a Zoya Pixie Dust, but none of the swatchers mentioned that theory, so maybe that wasn't the plan 🤔 In any case, I added two coats of clear polish before topcoat, and it's a glassy smooth sparkle bomb 💖

I wish the sun would come out, but it's a cloudy day ☁️

The contrasting shimmer in the purple is so hard to pick up for some reason, but this catches a bit of it on my pinky. Bonus blurry toes which happen to be wearing the same polish 🤣

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Impressive @RGbrown !! 😍😍😍 I can’t choose a favorite! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Saradestin 

Thanks so much! And me neither 😂🩵💜🩷🤍

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Wonka would be proud of this set @RGbrown! The polishes look fabulous together! Clionadh I Want An Everlasting Gobstopper is dazzing and just fits perfectly with the China Glaze polishes you selected! 💅

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi 

Thanks so much! I love how well Clionadh worked with the CG set, so sparkly 💖

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown  I love this theme!!! I want an everlasting goobstoper is gorgeous! I feel like I saw another Charlie and the chocolate factory collaboration also! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@ather 

Thanks so much! It really is a fun theme, always lending itself to bright and sweet colors 💖

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Wow, gorgeous colors/combination, @RGbrown ! 💜💙🤍  I love the new shape of your nails too.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Titian06 

Thanks so much! I kinda like this shape so far, but I've encountered a fairly serious issue that I haven't been able to overcome...I can't figure out how to take my contacts out anymore 😣 I normally wear them for days straight anyways so it's not a massive problem yet, but I may have to file them way down and eliminate the points soon. I don't understand why this shape is such an issue, I could do it easily with even longer squares, but for some reason, I absolutely can't get them out, and just wind irritating my eyes with repeated attempts until I finally give up for the night. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown - I don't wear contacts, so I can't help with this issue.  Have you Googled it? 🤔

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Titian06 

I've tried a few different methods, but my biggest problem is me...I've been doing it the same way for 35 years now (geez, that long?!) and seem to have some sort of mental block against sticking my fingers in my eyeballs any other way than I normally do, so my reaction is almost a mini panic attack. I'll figure it out soon or file my nails down, one or the other 🤣

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown - That's why I don't wear contacts.  It took me forever to have cataract surgery on both my eyes too.  The thought of having surgery on my eyeballs caused me to have panic attacks and anxiety.  I know exactly what you mean.  You found a way that works for you.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown  Wow they are gorgeous!  Love all of them 💜💙🩵🩷
