essence all I want – under the mistletoe + candy cane 2nd attempt

. Thursday, December 17, 2009

 

this polish is part of the current essence le all I want. there are 3 other shades, pinks and purples, nothing special to me. but I decided to go for this red, because I don’t have many reds, mostly darker and vampy shades. the picture looks a bit odd, because I had to adjust the color in photoshop, but now it’s rather color true. I guess, reds are even worse to take pictures of than purples.

underthemistletoe

under the mistletoe is a medium red with red shimmer. I can’t decide whether it’s cool or warm, it has hints of both orange and blue. application was good, and it was opaque with 2 coats. I think it’s to red for me, I guess, that’s why I don’t have any shades like this in my collection ^^ but it’s good for christmas manicure pimping ;-)

so here we have the second candy cane manicure attempt:

understamp1

stamped with m65 and konad white.

next I removed the “bead chain” (I could have done this before on the stamp, but I wanted to see how this looks)

understamp22

and added some red glitter with a nailart glitter pen.

understamp3

now that's what I call a festive look!

Richtig schön =)

Hat der rote auch - so wie pink&lila - diese mini mini shimmer/glittis? der pinke&der lilane haben beide dieselben, so pinkig bläulich.

Ich finde allerdings den Pinsel etwas kurz & er nimmt wenig Farbe auf =/
