nail transformations

by maccosmetics


texturize clear leather-effect topcoat
highlight sheer blue pearl transformer
liquid pigment – pink pearl sheer pink pearl transformer
liquid pigment – green pearl sheer green pearl transformer
liquid pigment – gold pearl sheer gold pearl transformer
shadow sheer blackening topcoat
skin light peach beige (cream)
quiet time being nude (cream)
rebel mid-tone cream plum (cream)

so what did I get to try and play around with? I got the shadow sheer blackening topcoat and this little bugger darkens almost every nailpolish color. I tried it with several colors and I think it needs at least two layers of nailpolish to really darken the tone. I think it is really nice to have a darker accent nail. so what did I do?I painted all my nails in one color and then I choose an accent nail, usually I always go for the ring finger and add three layers of the shadow sheer blackening topcoat – thats it!

I went to the maccosmetics booth inside Globus and was able to play a bit with the whole collection. One makes the nailpolish look pinker, one makes it look greener and one makes it look golden or blue. then there is one that makes the nailpolish look like leather. there are three colors that can be used as a base but let me tell you, they work with any kind of nailpolish as a base. 🙂 have a look at the collection << here >>

a couple of days ago I told you about the Alessandro Striplac Starter Kit and that I really had a good start and that I got some more colors to try and have fun with! so, here we go!

I will start from left to right (see photo above)

#45 dark violet
a very nice and dark plum color

#87 hawaiian dreams
a light creamy pink

#27 secret red
this color comes with the starter kit, a nice red with a berry undertone

#98 cashmere touch
a very light beige perfect for a nude mood! It looks amazing with golden jewelry and tanned skin!

#81 peachy cindarella
a creamy pinkish peachy orange – with this color you are ready for spring!

#62 surfin USA
a very light greenish babyblue – perfect for summery toenails!

#76 New York grey
this is perfect for the days where you dont feel like wearing a color, its not a very dark grey so it still looks very classy.

and I already have a couple of new colors on my #wishlist 🙂 like the
#15 mandarinas manarine a rather orangy red
#84 cherry cherry lady a very nice burgundy color

I had so much fun with Simone from SIMONEMAKEMEBEAUTIFUL.COM at K PONY today. I m very happy with the result! We chose the THANKS A WINDMILLION and YOU DONT KNOW JACQUES nailpolishes by OPI and used brown for the tips and mintgreen for the base.
