ABC Challenge - C is for China Glaze Caribbean Blue and circle glitter

***TÄLLÄ KERTAA SUOMENKIELINEN VERSIO KUVIEN ALAPUOLELLA***


Yay!! It's time for our weekly ABC Challenge again and this week's letter is C. For that I chose China Glaze Caribbean Blue with circle glitter. Enough C's there for y'all? LOL Circle glitter awesomeness polish is Stay Behind, Catch a Wave from Elevation polish.

I applied two coats of Caribbean Blue and one coat of Stay Behind, Catch a Wave. The circle glitter lays so flat that I only needed to use Inm Out The Door Super Fast Dry top coat to smooth it out. I'm totally in love with this circle glitter. Such a nice change from all the hex glitter I've had on my nails lately. So sparkly and looks like raindrops on your nails. Stunning! Can't wait to layer this with other colors too.

Stay Behind, Catch a Wave can be bought from Elevation Polish store but it's sold out at the moment.

Don't forget to check out what all the other amazing ladies have come up with this week! You can find inlinkz on the bottom of this post and you can also find links to their blogs on the ABC Challenge tab on the top of this page.









Mihin tämä aika oikein menee? Taas on keskiviikko ja ABC haasteen aika. Tässä ryhmässä sääntönä on valita joko kyseisen viikon kirjaimella alkava lakka, lakkamerkki tai nail art tyyli eli aika vapaamielisesti mennään. Tällä viikolla päätinkin soveltaa ja lisätä C lakkaukseeni vielä circle glitterin.

Lakkauksen pohjana on kaksi kerrosta China Glaze Caribbean Blue lakkaa ja päällä kerros Elevation Polish Stay Behind, Catch a Wave lakkaa pyöreällä glitterillä varustettuna. Pyöreä glitter tasoittui koostaan huolimatta hyvin kynnelle ja yksi kerros Inm pikakuivattajaa takasi tasaisen pinnan. Tämä pyöreä glitter on ihanaa vaihtelua kaikelle hex glitterille joita kynsilläni on viime aikoina nähty. Tämä kimaltelee upeasti ja näyttää tietyssä valossa kuin sadepisaroilta kynsillä. Kerrassaan upea tämäkin! Tekee heti mieli kokeilla tätä monen muunkin pohjavärin päällä.

Stay Behind, Catch a Wave lakan voi ostaa Elevation Polish nettikaupasta, mutta se on tällä hetkellä loppuunmyyty.

Käykääpä taas kurkkimassa myös muiden osallistujien aikaansaannoksia tuosta alapuolelta ja ABC Challenge välilehdeltä :)

  2. Yeah, definitely enough C's in this post! :)
    I love this kind of blues and I also love the glitter touch you added to this manicure. I'm a glitter junkie but I don't think I have nothing similar in my stash. :)
