It's been quite a while, hasn't it? Rest assured, my love of nail polish hasn't disappeared. In fact, I've been on what you might call an indie nail polish binge lately, and I've picked up so many beauties! I think I'm going to do a post on what's currently on my list of untrieds, and you can give me a shout if there's a spesific polish or combo that you'd like to see?

For this post, however, I'm going to give you some pics of some various nail looks that I've been sporting recently. The pictures I take are by no means professional - I don't have a light box set-up, or a professional camera, and I usually take pics of my nails on my way to work, because that's when I remember, and the light is decent, haha!
Anyway, I hope you enjoy these. I love comments, so if you have anything to say, be sure to leave a note!

Right, so first up is a mani I unoriginally dubbed "Peacock Plumage" because it consists of Isadora "Peacock" as the base, and Candeo Colors "Plumage" on top. This is two coats of each color, plus base and top coat.

Next is the infamous Nfu-Oh 51, which, if you ask me, might be the queen of all flakie nail polishes. I adore this one so much! This is 3 or 4 coats to build it to full opacity, although I've worn it over a black and over a purple base too, to avoid doing so many coats. 

I'm sad to say I don't remember which polish I used as base for this last mani. More than likely it was a random turquoise polish I had laying around. But! The real action happens up top, and is caused by two or maybe three coats of Candeo Colors "Divebomb". This mani ended up looking a little wonky, because I put waaay too much top coat on, which is why it looks uneven in the pics. It still looked pretty good in real life, though, enough so to get me compliments from random strangers at work. The same thing happened with "Peacock Plumage" above

Until next time, lovelies!
