Manhattan "Retro Glam" - Dive In (Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!)

Hi everyone,

We're looking at petrol today, and I've got another old photo for you, from nearly two years ago. You're probably beginning to wonder how many more of those I have stored away in the depths of my hard drive, and, well... Let's just say there's lots more. I'm just gonna try to use as many of them as I can in all the series I've foolishly set myself up to participate in, and then I might just lump the rest into a few "blast from the past" sort of posts. Let me know what you think, peeps!

I'm guessing that this might've been two coats, with top coat. I took a second photo to show the shimmer more.

CbL Colors by Llarowe - Cabaret (Wir lackieren...)

Hey everyone,

Today, I have a non-holo polish for you. But it is a glitter. Actually, let me just admit it now: I don't have a single nail polish from CbL that's not holo or glitter. There, I said it.

I needed three coats for opacity, simply because the base is really sheer. I would say the glitter makes it busy enough for it to be okay at two coats, however I wasn't quite pleased with what I saw just yet. Top coat was also applied, as per usual with polishes that don't have any sort of special finish.
