Swatches of Emily de Molly's 3 "Forces" Shades!

Posted on August 15, 2013 by Wenche Angelinn

Today I have swatches of (and some tips for applying) the Emily de Molly "Cosmic Forces", "Oceanic Forces" and "Dark Forces" :)

I actually heard some customers had problems with these colors, the application and the drying time, and getting the circles on the brush. So here is what I did:

I placed all the bottles upside down for a few minutes. If you do this the large circles will come easier on your brush.

I started off with a base coat (Cult Nails Get it On has been a favourite of mine for quite some time now). After dry, I applied a very thin coat of the polish without taking any large glitters on the brush, remember this one is with a jelly base so you have to build it up to coverage. I also put on  a second coat without any large glitters. In the third coat I put on the circle glitters and I hardly had to fish at all after them. I also used an orange stick to move the circles where I wanted them. And to get full coverage and some layering effect I put on a fourth coat.

To get it to dry I first used the Nailstation Dry Drops and some CND Solar Spray, finishing it all off with the Cult Nails Wicked Fast topcoat. I did not have any more problems with these polishes than other independant glitters. The Dark Forces were a little thick, so it were more difficult than the others, but remember, use thin coats.

Pictures are taken with flash. I tried to take without flash but it didn't quite show the effect correctly I think.

Swatch: Lumina Lacquer Spring in Iceland

Posted on April 02, 2013 by Wenche Angelinn K.

This is the beautiful Lumina Lacquer Spring in Iceland over Essie Avenue Maintain (from the spring collection).

Today is World Autism Awareness Day, so many bloggers paint their nails blue.

Lumina Lacquers are so packed with glitter that there are no fishing involved. She has the most amazing color combinations. It's pretty difficult to capture the shimmer in this but I tried my best.
