Hello there :)


It's Summer Challenge Day so it's my second post of the day. The theme is Sunshine and I really like the result. I didn't want to paint sun or anything obvious like that so I combined two techniques - gradient colours and stamping. 
I've used China Glaze Sun-Kissed, Orange You Hot? and OPI The Color Of Minnie for the gradient base and Essence White stamping polish and BM plate RA-106 for the stamping.


These are the girls participating in the Summer challenge, Check out their blogs and see their interpretation of the 'Summer Sunrise' theme:

Hello lovelies!

Today? Flakiiiieeees! I finally got my paws on Barielle Buddha-ful and I want to share it :)

Buddha-ful - green flakies changing to blue in a pinky-peach jelly. In this case I've applied one coat of Buddha-ful over Pink Quartz. By itself the polish is sheer and you would need about three coats so it's much better to layer it over a different polish. I was lucky to own Pink Quartz that is almost the same shade as the Buddha-ful jelly base. It applied nicely despite Buddha-ful having a bit thick formula.  I had to use topcoat as the flakies create a little uneven finish but we all use topcoat anyway, right?
