Guy Fawkes Night Nails!

Published November 5, 2014 by clairestelle8

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?

Liquid Sky Lacquer Fuchsia Illusion

Published November 4, 2014 by clairestelle8

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.

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!
