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.
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:
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)
and added some red glitter with a nailart glitter pen.
now that's what I call a festive look!
