Hello lovelies,

If you've liked the Autumn splatter manicure from few days ago you'll probably like this one too. I love it!

Here's how you do it:
Start with applying two coats of SpaRitual Marble. When the polish is completely dry you can start applying the gold colour. Put two drops of Aurum on non-porous surface (eg. Back of a stamping plate, plastic re-sealable bag, piece of aluminium foil). Use a corner of makeup sponge and dab the gold polish on ¾ of the nail. Always dab first on the first half of the nail and when the colour payoff is not strong continue towards the cuticle creating gradient effect. Repeat this with Conduit, bronze shade.  At last repeat the process with Rusted Lux which you’ll dab only to the tips of the nail and a little bit towards the middle of the nail. Then use a drinking straw and dip it into the black nail polish and blow over the nail. Repeat this as many times as you need till you get the desired splatter effect. When dry apply topcoat to seal the manicure.

Hello lovelies!

Just a quick post with a swatch today as I'm actually working very long hours this week. So excuse me if I won't be able to post every day. 

Today I have here Sparitual Marble from the Rock collection for Fall 2012. You can read about the colours and inspiration behind the collection here. Interesting is that each polish is infused with Rhyolite (volcanic magma) from the Lipari Islands. I have previously reviewed Lithophonic, Slate and Basalt shades.

Marble - frosted white shimmer with white glass flecks. Lovely shade that would be great for the Holiday season as it looks like snow on nails. It applied easily but I needed three coats for the full coverage. The finish is nice and sparkly, you almost wouldn't need a topcoat (but I'd recommend it to make it dry faster). Otherwise the drying time is average and the removal was easy too. I thought the glass flecks would cause me some troubles but they didn't.
