Brand Week: Elianto Racing Green and Night Glitters

So much for hoping that I could complete a Brand Week with no breaks.
The weather was fine, but life happened.
I fell sick, then a good friend got hospitalised.
 
Perhaps next time, I should just keep quiet instead of writing about it.
Kinda feels like I jinxed it now when I wrote about it in the last post.
 
 
 
 
#18 Racing Green,
2 coats + Seche Vite TC.
 
Gorgeous emerald green with green flakes.
Love this one loads.
It's the polish that got me interested in the Elianto brand.
 
 
 
 
#19 Night Glitters,
2 coats + Seche Vite TC.
 
Brackish green base that reminds me of a swamp with gold flecks swimming in there.

This one is really pretty,
once you get past the weird nail shape.
Well, I'm currently in the process of re-shaping my nails to try the almond-stiletto nails.
Hopefully when I finally get there, it won't look as weird as this.

Brand Week: Elianto Shimmer Violet and Mahogany

Here's comes the second batch of swatches.
For once, if this weather keeps up,
I should be able to get them all swatched and done in time for a proper without breaks.
*fingers crossed*
 
 
 
 
#10 Shimmer Violet,
3 coats + Seche Vite TC.
 
Pinkish purple foil.
My least favourite of my entire lot of Eliantos.
 
 
 
 
#12 Mahogany
2 coats + Seche Vite TC.

This one looks like the colour of mahogany wood that's been shot through with gold.
Quite lovely.
I wouldn't mind having furniture this shade of wood.

Brand Week: Elianto Glitter Bronze, Salsa Pink and Lilac

It's Brand Week again!
And this round, I picked an Asian brand.
Heh. And its not Etude House.
 
 
 
 
#04 Glitter Bronze,
2 coats + Seche Vite TC.

Yellow gold foil.
This one reminds me of old-fashioned gold jewellery.
 
 
 
 
#08 Salsa Pink,
2 coats + Seche Vite TC

Bright pink foil with gold shimmer.
The gold shimmer doesn't seem to show up well in my pictures,
but its there in real life.
And gorgeous, especially under low lights.

 
 
#09 Lilac
3 coats + Seche Vite TC.

Sheer, lilac foil with pink shimmer.
I've posted this one a long time ago,
but I still wanted to put it up again since its so pretty.

Nail Art Weekend: Can't let go of the Nordics yet (Part 1)

Yeah. I wait months before I bust them out of The Stash.
And then I can't seem to stop using them.
 
 
 
 
Viking in a Vinter Vonderland,
dry-brushed glitter gradient using My Voice is a Little Norse.
Accent nail was a nail wrap I brought back from Bangkok.
 
I'm also developing a stash of nail wraps.
Need to start using them more before I run out of space for those too.
 
 
 
 
Viking in a Vinter Vonderland,
with My Voice is a Little Norse for accent.
