Happy Friday! Even though this was such a short week it felt like a reeaaaaaallllyyy long walk from Wednesday to Friday 😉 How was your week? Do you have any weekend plans? We are actually off to watch Avengers this weekend and I am really excited to just relax for a bit and do nothing. Have you seen it yet?
I showed you the beautiful The island of misfit toys collection the other day and I don’t know about you but that red just completely wow’d me. I knew that I wanted to use it again soon. When I emailed about the collection I also noticed that Dolly had listed some polishes she found on the facebook group and one of them was a long time lemming of mine, Squirrel!! I immediately snatched it up. Once I got the fantastic Stiletto vinyls from Because I Shop I knew exactly what I had to do. I had to combine these 3. Let me show you what I did,
I started with 2 coats of Dollish Polish – Why am I such a misfit? and left that to dry completely. I then used the stiletto vinyls and went over it with 2 coats of Dollish Polish – Squirrel!!!, making sure to remove the vinyl immediately after I was done and the polish wasn’t dry. I kinda like dit but it needed something so I grabbed my thin nail art brush with Nubar – Noir and made a thin black line where the red and nude met. I topcoated and voila!
My initial reaction was that I really loved it. Then I started to get some wonder woman vibes. Then someone mentioned iron man and I was a goner. I wasn’t sure if I still liked it. I kept it to post because I really liked the polishes and the stiletto vinyls (although I could’ve changed up the colours for this purpose) and also, I made the black line freehand and I am super duper proud of myself for how well I did it. It’s by no means perfect, but it is not too shabby. What do you think? Is it too super hero-esque or does it look ok? Let me show you this polish though
Dollish Polish – Squirrel!!!
This is 2 coats with topcoat. It is a nude holo with a stunning formula. It leans a little gold in some light but it is definitely more nude and the holo is just stunning! I have been lusting after this polish for so long I can almost not believe I now have it. I’ve worn it twice and both times I walk around staring at my nails. It’s absolutely gorgeous.
What do you think? Do you have either of these polishes? Do you love a nude holo as much as I do? Let me know what you think about my stiletto *cough* nails. 😉
Thanks for reading,
