Adorned Nails: Etos Effect Nails No. 18



Here's an electric blue polish for you. With its fine shimmers and its jelly finish, how can you not be drawn to it?


The colour in the bottle looks like the colour of Bristol Blue Glass.....or so I thought. It was close but on the nails, it looks more like Bristol Blue Glass held against strong sunlight. I have here three coats on. Two was OK, but I could still see faint traces of my nail tips. This polish was rather fragile. Drying time took ages and I had a couple of little accidental dents and fingerprint marks on the surface. So, a good top coat is advised.



I love tribal designs. This one's from the old Essence Nail Art Stampy Set 2 Have Fun. As mentioned before, I have only one full-nail stamping image which I used previously on Sparitual Epicurean. So, this time around, I stamped the tribal design multiple times to fill up each nail. A stamping frenzy.....umm, would that make it a stampede?



I used an old silver nail polish from Catrice called Silver Moon for the stamping. I think the silver complements this striking blue beautifully!



Check out the KOH and Co. Giveaway. This electric blue polish is part of Prize Package 2.

This look reminds me of fine china! So exquisite. =D You're so lucky that you look good with any nail polish color. I tend to stay away from bright or dark colors b/c I just don't think I can carry it off. =\

Witoxicity said...

@Shop N' Chomp
Haha, thanks, my dear! Sometimes, I think it's all in the mind. You may THINK it doesn't look good on you, but others may have a different opinion about it. :)

Ermm..kinda look a tad similar to the blue I did....;)

Witoxicity said...

@Vonvon
It's close, but I think yours is more aquamarine with a very metallic finish. Yours is gorgeous! :)
