Jelly Glitter with NYX

Essence - Peel Off Base - Ready for Boarding LE
NYX - Pimp my Nail (2 Coats) / NYX - Paradise Nude (2 Coats)
Essence Glitter Topper - Julia
again one Coat of the base colour from NYX on top of the Glitter Topper
Essence BTGN Top Sealer

edit: Essence Limited Peel Off Base didn't work well in this case. It was very hard to remove it. The removed pieces hat a size of 2-3 mm and in the end there was still a sticky layer on some parts and I had to work with polish remover. My nails didn't look damaged or dried out at the end. That's the only good thing about. Maybe I had to much layers on. I know some girls had better results with this base.

Konad m83 + Blue Rhapsody

For Base I used my old manicure which is in the last post or here
Today I added a stamp with
Konad m83
&
Catrice - Mission Lilac - Revoltaire LE



The purple / pink polish by Catrice came out not that intense as it really is, but in this case its perfect because it simmilates the metallic effect instead of beeing only a creme colour polish. I don't try my designs on seperate arificial nails, so I am not always proof about the effect it will become. But in this case it's a really good combination, I think. Also, I didn't have done lots of nail stamps and a decision for only a few colours is always hard, as you know.
