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

@itsfi  pretty neutral color, and I love the purple mani with flower nail art too! I haven't tried any MiniLuxe polishes before - how do you like them?

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@caitbird, thank you! I have my fair share of reds, purples and netural nudes/beiges but the purple is a new one for me - or, at least, I haven't found one that's so close to it in my stash that I feel like it's a dupe (or maybe I just tell myself that so I don't feel the need to declutter any? Hahahaha!)

 

I am enjoying the MiniLux polishes, though I'm finding that some of their cremes have more of a demi-matte or matte finish than I was expecting. The metallic shades that I have though are excellent! ๐Ÿ˜˜ I'm in the shopping my stash phase (again! ๐Ÿ˜…) with my nail polish, but there are a few brands (and shades) that I would consider hitting  "pause" on my no-buy for, and MiniLux is one of them, though to be fair, there'd need to be a sale, in most instances. The novelty of the brand vis-a-vis my current collection has a lot to do with it, along with the packaging,  and the colors themselves. ๐Ÿ’…

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi both are stunning

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@CorgiMommy, thank you. I've been liking the MiniLuxe polishes. Their metallic shades in particular have been quite good.๐Ÿ’…

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Both colors are gorgeous, @itsfi !  I've been leaning in that neutral bronze/topaz direction with my makeup.  I'd love to have more nail polishes in that color!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Titian06, thank you. I love the neutral nudes/browns/bronze shades for eyeshadows. It's funny that I only have a few of that color family as far as nail polish goes. I know you've been growing your nail polish collection (fun!!) ๐Ÿ˜ - are there any brands you're particularly liking or find yourself picking up more polish from than others?

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi - I have the most polishes from Zoya because they have "too good to pass up sales."  I think ILNP is my favorite formula.  Cirque Colors is the brand I reach for most frequently.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I finally figured out what the problem was for my magnetic nails and why I wasn't getting the velvet!!!!!

 

Wasn't my technique, I just didn't have the right polish!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@jaaayp  These are beautiful!! ๐Ÿ˜ what was wrong with the polish you used before? And what did you use this time??? 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@ather @caitbird @Titian06 thank you! I'll do a separate post with explanations hehehehe ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@jaaayp  wow, this is gorgeous! What technique/polish do you use to get this effect? I'm so curious!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

These look gorgeous, @jaaayp ! ๐Ÿคฉ  Can you explain a little more what the problem was/how you corrected it?  We'd love to know!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Ohhhh, the finish looks so velvety soft and smooth @jaaayp๐Ÿ˜ Gorgeous!!! Excellent work! What polishes / brands are these?

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @itsfi ! I think it needs some refinement in terms of application but I love the new polishes! These are from Amazon, a brand called "MIZHSE" cat eye gel nail polishes. I think the biggest difference for these vs my other gel polish is the size of the glitter. These only have 42 reviews but I did read on here that they offer "micro particles" so that definitely gives it the smooth look vs sparkley look (although we love both ๐Ÿ˜‰
