Layering Thursday: NYX Purple Avenue over OPI Live and Let Die

Hello my dears! How is your week going? 
A lot of wonderful things are happening this week, small things, but that just make me happy. My baby's first tooth has come through yesterday, it is so cute! And we also finally found a crèche for our baby of which I'm actually happy. Many things I've been worried about come to a solution, so it is quite a relief.

Into the polish. As I was very busy today I didn't have time to do a new manicure but I thought why not using one of the great polishes I've labelled as "to layer". So, I've picked NYX Purple Avenue and did two thin coats over my yesterday's mani OPI Live and Let Die, and I was so happy with the result I decided to write this post.

What I wasn't so happy about were these pictures. Well, I know the Sun is the closest star to the Earth, but we haven't been seeing it in the neighbourhood. So these were taken under artificial light, or very deemed natural light. Which is really a pity because the photos don't do justice to the gorgeous and sparkly green flecks.

I've also realize how many of my polishes are destined to be "layered" and I never ever do layering!!!!!!!  So from now on I've decided to write a post about "Layering of the week" LOTW every Thursday, which is usually my busiest day of the week. What do you think? Do you like layering for freshen up your mani?

  1. It's a nice manicure!! I love flakies and Live & let die is such a pretty polish!
    I'm glad to hear you found a place in a crèche for your baby, that's so difficult!

    1. Hi Nailderella, so nice to have some Swiss readers! thank you for your comment, and yes, it's been hard to find a place for my baby.
      Your blog rocks!

  2. Hi again Natalia :) Glad your week is going well. Sometimes the little things can be the biggest things, right? :) Grats on your baby cutting its first tooth! I love the combo you did here, The green reminds me of the posters for the play wicked! I don't own any nyx polishes..But maybe I ought to! Becoming a blogger is going to make me so poor lol.
    Layering is GREAT! Great for a look, great for refreshing up a look and making two looks out of one :) Beautiful look!

  3. Thank you Ithfifi for your nice comment.Glad you liked the mani, I know what you mean about blogging & buying, LOL! Right now there is a sale on NYX Switzerland, so... I'm mostly a "sale girl" but from time to time I do buy new trendy items, but I try to keep it on my budget! It is so HARD! LOL

  4. Very beautiful combo!!
    I love green flecks!
    I must be better at layering too... ;)
