Sea Blue by Kelly Cris over Illamasqua Phallic
Hey people! Two in a row, yay! Here in Ljubljana is snowing so hard. I can't remember the last time snow was falling so thick, it's like someone up there tore their pillows in a pillow fight. It looks nice when you are inside, covered with a blanket and drinking warm tea.
I put this combo on yesterday and I absolutely love it. Illamasqua Phallic has been waiting for me to reshoot it again for a while. First pictures turned out really bad. I like the new ones much better, although I doubt any photo can capture the amazing shimmer Phallic has. It is one crazy ass gorgeous blue.
Then I put on top another Brazilian beauty. I had some troubles figuring out who is the artist behind the polish, as it is an indie brand and only Sea Blue is written on the bottle. With an adorable bow on the handle too! As it seems, Kelly Cris is the creator and she does not have a blog, at least I could not find it. But Esmaltes da Kelly (not the same Kelly from what I can see, as Esmaltes da Kelly has her own polish line called EDK) shows the collection [HERE] and the polish looks amazing! BTW, Brazilian girls really know how to make nail polish. EDK also has some amazing colours, Morning Dew stole my heart. <3
So yeah ... Eveline was so awesome she sent me Sea Blue and I am in love with it. It looks absolutely stunning over Phallic, and the irregular sized blue glitter (there is a holo glitter thrown in there as well) makes it even more perfect, I love love love it!
The light was too poor to make a decent video, so I made a blurry sparkle check photo, to show you all the wonderful colours of sparkle.
This is just one coat of Sea Blue. It is a tiny bottle, but the brush is great and it is not hard to get glitter on the nails to spread nicely. You also need only one coat of TC to get smooth nails, another extra point for Sea Blue!
And to show you Illamasqua Phallic alone. It is a beauty. Two to three coats, depends on the nail (and my clumsiness).
There you have it. Two blue beauties.I love them. Eveline, thank you for Sea Blue, you are awesome for sending me these Brazilian gems!
Do you like the combo? What is your favourite Illamasqua colour?
Thank you for reading, have a great weekend!
