Hello lovelies!

It's another day of Summer Challenge and today's topic is Red + Orange + Yellow Mani. I've done a simple three-tone gradient manicure using China Glaze Sun-Kissed, Orange You Hot? and OPI The Colour of Minnie.

As you will noticed I gave the gradient a 'grainy' look. I've achieved this by using a sponge for dish washing instead of makeup sponge. Sealed with Poshe Fast Drying Topcoat.

Hi everybody!

I finally own Ozotic Elytra polishes!!! I absolutely love them in the bottle but they've disappointed me a bit on the nails. I will try more combinations so I can explore their full potential. Today I've layered Ozotic 529 over KIKO 379.

Ozotic 529 - multichrome glitter in a clear base. It is really hard to describe this polish. The glitter shifts from dark blue, almost purple through lighter shades of blue to pink and burnt orange shades. Amazing! I was staring at the bottles for a very long time when they've finally arrived. I don't know if it's just this combination but it didn't look as good on the nail. I haven't used any topcoat so the surface is uneven.

The removal was the same like with all glitters - difficult to say the least :) Use the foil method or at least hold the soaked cotton pad on your nail for few minutes. That's what I do instead of preparing foil stripes.

And here is the mattified version using MASH Matte Top Coat. I actually like the mattified version much more, the top coat makes it very elegant.


I've bought the Ozotics at Harlow & Co. and MASH Top Coat can be purchased at mashnails.com
