NOTD - Sparkles, Stripes and More Sparkles!!

In my last post, you all saw that I received my first indie polish, Lacquistry's Undertow! I couldn't wait any longer. I needed to have it on my nails AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! The bottle itself is so mesmerizing. I couldn't wait to see the trance it put me in once it was on my nails. I knew it was only going to be my accent nail, so my next chore was to figure out what to do with it. It's bright and beautiful so I wanted something that would add to it's beauty. First thing that came to mind was the new SinfulColors Frenzy that was in my goodie bag from Andrea at Finger Painting Fingers. I wasn't sure how thick Undertow was so I decided to put SinfulColors Hot Spot under it. And there was no contest as to what I was going to put under Frenzy, it was SinfulColors Dream On by a long shot! Gorgeous in the bottle!

I did 2 coats of Hot Spot on each ring finger, and 2 coats of Dream On on the other fingers. Hot Spot is a gorgeous deep shimmery navy. Absolutely beautiful! Dream On looks like it'd be a super bright neon purple in the bottle, but once it's on, it has a matte finish!! I was VERY pleasantly surprised! I love matte polishes! On the other side, it ends up be darker that I would have thought and not as neon. However, once the 1 coat of Frenzy went on and the 1 coat of Gelous and 1 coat of Seche Vite, it seemed to get it's neon back! I only had to do 1 coat of Undertow. It was practically a full coverage glitter, which makes me so very excited! I really didn't need Hot Spot after all. I then did 1 coat of Gelous. When that dried, I got a glimpse of the nail art brushes I just got in the mail from Set in Lacquer. I've never done nail art or used the special brushes, but I figured now or never! I grabbed the #1 brush and dipped it into Dream On and did 3 small diagonal stripes on each ring finger then topped with Seche Vite. Here's the final product! (I used the flash in all the pictures)

 So bright and sparkley!!

I'm in love with this mani!! I can't stop staring!! 

Happy Polishing!!
