Jordana - Supernatural with mattefied scotch tape try
Heya guys. I feel like typing this away today, although I didn't plan to. I've been a potato woman whole day long, which happens if you're still recovering from a nasty virus and your mom wakes you up with terrible news that make you feel like you got kicked in the stomack. o.O Not really my best day, but that's probably the reason why I changed a perfectly good mani and edited some pictures and am writing this down. If anyone says you're wasting your time (and money) with nail polish and blogs, just let them now how good it is for when you're feeling down. You know the movie The Enemy Of The State? Will Smith plays (really hot) lawyer guy and he explains to his wife, at the end of a weird day when he starts to blend a smoothie to relax, that some people jog, some drink, some do some other stuff ... and he blends. I do my nails and buy nail polish. :P
Anyway. This one is special. I've shown you Supernatural before, in a comparison and I said in that entry that I have to wear it as a full mani ASAP. That comparison was done in November. So much about successfully going thorugh my untrieds. For the record - I think a polish belongs in my untrieds box untill I've worn it as a full mani, comparisons don't count.
Why is this one special? My BF picked this one out of the box for our special day. It was really a coincidence, I planned to have something completely different on my nails, but he was here and said I should wear this. And I must admit, he has some awesome taste. Supernatural is gorgeous. I wore it for quite a few days, after a few days I mattefied it too. Here are the pictures.
I left most of them totally large, so you would see the details of the glitter, I recommend enlarging it, the matte versions too, because the glitter looks totally awesome mattefied.
As always, my scotch tape tries are inspired by the amazing Erika and her Chloe's Nails. Funny though, no matter how much I try, it never turns out as cool as when she does it. ;) With this one I like my ring finger, but I think it would be best if I left it as an accent finger and just put matte TC on all the rest. I hate especially my little fingers design, it's really like whatever. Oh well, you live and learn.
About Jordana - Supernatural itself ... well, it's perfect, isn't it? Little black with bright blue glitter perfection. Not to mention the name reminds me of one of my favourites show on the planet. :)
This was three coats, all Jordanas glitters need three coats, but trust me, it's completely worth it. I added 1 coat of Ultra Shine Nfu Oh TC and then SV, to make it dry faster. I was really happy to see that appearantly one coat of a Nfu Oh TC prevents the shrinkage of SV that I already got with Jordanas glitter. So yay! And two coats of TC are enough to make this baby smooth, it doesn't eat TC, luckily. :)
Anything else? Don't think so ... what's your favourite glitter in the whole wide world?
Thank you for reading, have a lovely evening!
