So, in the UK November 5th is the day we um….celebrate a plot to blow up Parliament and the King in 1605, by lighting fireworks and standing outside in the dark eating jacket potatoes and declaring that burgers cooked on a bonfire are the best food you’ve ever eaten…even when you are a vegetarian like me! We have some very unusual traditions here but Guy Fawkes or Firework Night is great fun so I decided to celebrate with a firework inspired mani!
I started with a base of Models Own Purple Blue and free handed some fireworks with Liquid Sky Lacquer polishes in What Was Your Name Again ( a vibrant holo pink). Swerve ( a stunning holo teal) and Turn Up ( a zingy bright holo green) and Nails Inc Sumner Place( a lemon yellow). I then topped it with dashes of Models Own White Light.
I had great fun doing this design and am looking forward to all the fireworks…and potatoes tonight! How are you celebrating?
Today I am showing you a thermal polish from one of my favourite indie brands – Liquid Sky Lacquer’s Fuchsia Illusion. This is a stunning deep purple holo when in its cold state. In England,where I live, the weather conditions are perfect to show thermals off like this!
And warm it shifts to a brilliant pink holo
I was never warm enough for it to change completely but I did get a rather interesting effect at times with a striped shift of colours!
I then added a bit of stamping with Color Club Harp on It ( a gorgeous silvery holo) and Moyou plate Tourist 21.
And a picture of it in shade
Fuchsia Illusion, like all of Liquid Sky Lacquer polishes I have used, applied very smoothly and easily and was perfectly opaque in two coats. And I always find wear excellent! It didn’t shift between states terribly easily but I think I should hold the chilly English autumn weather partly culpable!
