Easy going to Fifth avenue

Hi lovelies,

Yay I could finally make a random post title with the names of the polishes again!  I hope you’ve had a fantastic week!  Mine has been busy but productive so a total win.  So glad for weekend though!

Today I have some nail art that I am still not sure if it is a win, a fail or a half and half.  I went backwards and forwards so much while doing this.  I had an idea, changed it slightly and then I went half way with it before changing direction and going in a completely different direction.  As we do of course 😉

First I want to show you this beautiful polish. The first time I saw it I knew I had to have it.

China Glaze – Fifth avenue

China Glaze - Fifth avenue

This is 2 coats with no topcoat.  For me this was a bit of a chameleon.  It’s a very classic dusty pink / nude shade.  Once it dried on my nails it went a bit darker.  I then looked at it again later in the evening and in the darker light it looked completely different again.  I say ‘dusty pink’ because it does have a slightly pinkish tone to it but it has a nude / brown tone to it too.  I think it is such a classic shade.  It’s close to the ‘granny’ colour but it’s absolutely stunning.  It does change on the nail though which I think gives it even more magical powers.  This reminds me very much of the Kylie Jenner lip colour craze.  It has a stunning formula too and the opacity is great.  You might get away with 1 coat (but really shouldn’t 😉 )   Ok let me show you what I did with it.

I started with 2 coats of China Glaze – Fifth avenue on all my nails except my ring finger and then I topcoated these.  On my ring finger I started with 2 coats of Sinful Colors – Easy going.  Once that was all dry I stamped on Fifth avenue using MoYou London Explorer plate 3 and my Essence satin matte topcoat.  I just LOVED how the matte looked on this colour.  On Easy going I stamped using the same image but with China Glaze – Fifth avenue and then topcoated.  Somewhere between the stamping and the top coating the image didn’t do so very well.  It smudged a bit but when just looking at my nails (without the close up joys of photos) you can barely see it.  So it looked pretty nice.  In hindsight I was super tempted to just do the matte stamping but oh well.

Cooking with gas

What do you think?  Isn’t that just a gorgeous colour?  I love the matte stamping on it too.  My original plan was to add black and gold stamping decals.  Even though it looked good I think it took away from the colour and I really wanted to show it off.  Anyway, have a fabulous weekend and I’ll see you on the other side!

Thanks for reading,
