BOW Thermo Top Coat Black

Hey guys!

Today I have a swatch and review of BOW Thermo Top Coat Black to share with you!
Thermo Top Coat Black is a thermal polish that ranges from a sheer light grey to black with tiny holographic flakes.

The formula is good. I applied it over the nude polish Cirque Colors Dakota stamped with the black polish Essie Licorice and the MoYou London Holy Shapes 03 stamping plate on my middle and ring finger. It applied beautifully with one easy coat, but unfortunately it did make streaks in my stamping nail art.
The thermal shift is stunning and it shifts quickly in different temperatures.


Above the polish is in its hot state and below it is in its cold state.


It really is a shame that it smeared my nail art, because I think the disappearing nail art effect is awesome!

BOW Thermo Top Coat Blue

Hey guys!

Today I have a swatch and review of BOW Thermo Top Coat Blue to share with you!
Thermo Top Coat Blue is a semi-sheer thermo polish that ranges from a bright cobalt blue to a light periwinkle blue with tiny holographic flakes.

The formula is okay. I applied it over the light blue polish Deborah Lippmann Blue Orchid and it applied streaky and difficultly on the first coat. On the second (thick) coat it evened out.
The thermal shift is definitely what is amazing about this polish and it shifts beautifully!


Above is the polish in its cold state and below is the polish in its hot state.


I am so excited to wear this polish and observe how it shifts in different temperatures!

Palate Cleanser

Hey guys!

Today I have some simple nail art to share with you! I really needed something simple on my nails to act like a palate cleanser for me.

For the manicure I started off with a taupe nude base of Essie Go Go Geisha on all my nails. Afterwards I used a small nail art brush and Dance Legend Silver Leaf top coat to create the glitter gradient.


Close up!


I love a simple glitter gradient as this one!

F.U.N Lacquer Incredible

Hey guys!

Today I have a swatch and review of F.U.N Lacquer Incredible from the new F.U.N Lacquer 4th Anniversary Collection.
Incredible is a magnetic multi-chrome that ranges from magenta to gold to green.

The formula is great. Like with F.U.N Lacquer Believe I applied two coats over a black base and used a magnet to get the magnetic effect. The shift in this polish is not as intense as in F.U.N Lacquer Believe though.


I had to make this awkward hand pose to capture some of the magnetic multi-chrome effect.
And here's a closer look!


I have to say that I am a little disappointed with this polish after having tried Believe to compare this to.

F.U.N Lacquer Believe

Hey guys!

Today I have a swatch and review of F.U.N Lacquer Believe from the new F.U.N Lacquer 4th Anniversary Collection.
Believe is a magnetic multi-chrome that ranges from aqua blue to emerald green to purple to magenta to copper red. The shift in this polish is insane!

The formula on this polish is great. I applied two coats over a black base and used a magnet to get the magnetic effect. The opacity is great as well and you can apply one or two coats over black depending on how strong of a multi-chrome magnetic effect you want.


The multi-chrome magnetic effect was so hard to capture on camera, but you can see the shift from aqua blue to emerald green to purple on the picture above.
Close up!


I am in love with the crazy effects in this polish!

Halloween

Hey guys!

Today I have some Halloween nail art inspired by @lieve91 to share with you!

For the manicure I started off with a yellow base of By K. Dandelion on all my nails. Afterwards I used a make-up sponge, the burnt orange polish OPI It's a Piazza Cake, and the black polish Essie Licorice to create the gradient base. Afterwards I freehanded the tree, the haunted house, the tombstones, and the bats with watered-down black acrylic paint and a small nail art brush.


Close up!


I am so happy with how these turned out!

Lead Light

Hey guys!

Today I have some lead light nail art inspired by one of my old manicures and by Anna Gorelova to share with you!

For the manicure I started off with a white base of Essence Wild White Ways. Afterwards I stamped the leaves with MoYou London Tropical 06 stamping plate and the black polish Essie Licorice. Lastly I colored in the leaves with OPI Chromatic Orange, OPI Pen & Pink, and OPI Purple Perspective.


Close up!


I will never get tired of this manicure!
