NOTD: Galactic Glam under the sea


Haga click aquí para la versión en castellano.

Hello sweeties! How are you Today?
We have a little sunshine today, and I think it is a great time to share with you an "Under the sea" themed manicure made with Essence nail polish "Galactic Glam". I know the Summer is almost ended now, but I think I still have just the time for one last little seashell!




For this manicure I painted two coats of Essence Galactic glam and let them dry well. In fact I wore this polish by itself for 3 days! without topcoat! and snapped a pic on the third day, take a look:


Isn't that amazing? Wow! I'm impressed with the lasting power of this nail polish. This colour reminds me of Zoya Charla, it is not a dupe though because Charla has large golden flecks. But a pretty close shade for 2,75 CHF :) As there was a bit of tip wear, I decided to cover that up with a bit of gradient sponging using Zoya Muse from the Bubbly collection and Zoya Ziv, which is a golden foil. As a final touch I added two little golden seashells from Born Pretty Store on my ring and thumb fingernails. And that was it! I took the pics a couple of days ago and there was no sunshine! Such a pitty because Zoya muse has gorgeous holo glitter that were flashing and gleaming, but that gorgeousness is not shown in my pics :(
As I always go a step too far, after a while I also painted some fish-scales on my middle fingernail, but I totally regret it and prefer the other version.




I think that would be my (first and) last under the see themed nail art for this year, but I'm so not looking forward for Fall. I really enjoy September untill mid October landscapes... but hate foggy November :P

I hope you've liked the mani and don't hesitate to leave your feedback, it is always much appreciated!

Love,
Nati

    1. Ciao Ilaria, grazie per i complimenti! haha, ci ho dovuto riflettere un po a quale Sebastian ti riferivi! certo la Sirenetta! communque non c'è stato stamping coinvolto nella manicure, le squame sono free hand!

  15. This is beautiful! That seashell decal is such a great accent, perfect with the gold and blue. I didn't think I was ready for fall, either, but then I started swatching the new Zoyas and now I've got my summers all stashed away again, lol.
