Color Club Wild and Willing over Wet n' Wild Black Creme + Color Club Magic Attraction on little hands :)

Shines wildly in the bright midday sun. Not captured in these spam. Almost a dupe to Orly's Space Cadet. There's purple, pink, green, gold and orange in this layering effort. A coat of Seche hides all bubbling and imperfections :P

2 coats of Magic Attraction :) for a 8 year old cousin :)
Somehow, it peels off her nails after a day or two. Im wondering if its the body chemistry rather than my normal basecoat + CC + topcoat routine... hmm. Gotta do this on me soon.

Stardusted nails part 2

long awaited sequel :P
really sparkly in the sun due to the Pink Topaz number from Etude House LUCIDarling nails collection i added all over the nail.
mixure of LA Girls Rockstar lacquers, Double Platinum for the holo glitter, Live on Stage for the tips, and also some Ottie Oriental Glitter :)  

looks very much better in natural light... kinda regretted layering the Pink Topaz on, made it a tad too blingy :( but overall, understated bling ;) loved it!

Holo skittles which means a comparison :D

I did a holo skittles cuz I wanted to break in all my Daiso holo polishes at one go!
Red holo :) no. 7

From bottom up:
Black/charcoal holo no. 10
Green holo - From Beauty Credit GN06
Blue holo: no. 9
Silver with some iridescent shimmer with holo: no. 8

China Glaze GR8,  a gold holo, least scattered holo!

From left:
Purple holo: no. 4
Pink holo: no. 3
Beige/orange holo: no. 6
Darker orange holo?: no. 1

As you can tell, Im lacking 2 more Daiso holos :) Havent had the patience to remember the numbers im lacking :P

My mother and sister loved some of them and had me do a mani or two for them with these! :D
What do you think of these?

Daiso holos costs 2SGD for about 5ml, a little pricey but the effect is really not too bad! Granted, it is more scattered holo. Even Beauty Credit has a tad more rainbowy effect in the sun, but Daiso holos apply without streakiness! 2 coats are good. If too thick, due to people testing them in stores, some thinner will do the trick!

Love these!

Borghese Stellare Notte vs Etude House WH004

Essentially, both have the green/purple duochrome. But...
 Stellare Notte is duochrome in shimmer style. With a teal base, not a black one...
 Added one coat of CND Jade Sparkle. On another nail, added a red and silver glitter in red jelly base and also another coat of iridescent glitter :)
 Added iridescent glitter over CND Jade Sparkle. lol.
 Yep, OPI Show it and Glow it! Over Stellare Notte...

 WH004 is duochrome in glass flecks style, with the green/purple in flecks suspended in a black base.
 Tip pull by Seche Vite. *shakes head*
Love both! :)

I got Stellare Notte from the Vampy Giveaway prize on Libby's blog!

What are your thoughts?

*both are hard to photograph properly and WH004 looks black most of the time! Stellare Notte is much better ;)
