Xmas Manicure #1 : Sliver Wonderland

Etude House: Grey with blue base with silver shimmer/flecks of irregular size 
Beauty Credit: Glittery Silver with gritty-ness
Nature Republic: Chrome Silver (blue tinge)

 Without Beauty Credit's Silver Glitter, hence a really nice chrome look. Application for Nature Republic's chrome needed to be a little careful, brushstrokes can be visible, best to load brush with sufficient polish for one coat.

Taken after 3 days of wear. Pretty solid I must say. As usual with Seche Vite on top. 
Jewels stayed on pretty well too... Pictures taken in natural light!

//* thank you all for the comments in my last post :) Glad to hear positive remarks! Am still trying to be perfectly straight with my lines, the tip to move the finger and not the brush helps! ;)
Am glad i gave Ole another chance. The first time I used it as a mani i thought it was streaky as hell! I just had to give it some time to settle and all is well :D

//* Cheryl from Legally Polished has tagged me in an award :D A Spanish one too! I have taken Spanish before and love it!
