NOTD China Glaze Month - VIII + Atlantis
The CG vs. Avon post was already so full of pictures I decided to post my NOTD separately. After I put VIII on and saw it's basically a black creme with a hint of purple, I wanted to spice it up a bit. Just a bit. So I pulled out Atlantis or as I call it - effing liquid glitter! It's totally sparkly and glittery and just whoa! And since I'm not usually so fond of glitter, I used it only on two nails, on my ring fingers. I don't know why I'm writing about this stuff when you can see it on the pictures ...
Isn't it fascinating, how a camera can totally kill the glitter?
An extra blurry one, so you can see, just how insanely sparkly Atlantis really is. Play of every colour!
I have three coats of VIII, although it's a two coater, and one coat of Atlantis, like I said, i don't like my glitter too thick and too much in my face.
I discovered with this manicure, that I have appearantly somehow gotten glitter into my Seche Vite. And I clean the brush every single time! Grrrr! It really made me angry, because you can't really fix anything with SV on, it dries up so fast. So I have an accidental speck of glitter on my middle finger. And it's not from Atlantis, it has to be from previous manicures. I hope it's the only one. Or that the others will have the decency to land on my glitter manicure, and not on the extra dark creme! -.-
Like it? :)
Thanks for reading!
