A little Voodoo...



Hi lovely ladies! Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you have a wonderful celebration in this special time of year. Here in Mexico, as in many more countries, is just an ordinary thursday though :) we still have to wait one more month to eat that yummy turkey!... but we can definitely feel the holiday season coming up. Some neighbors and me have already all our Christmas decorations up.

This is my first mani post-challenge and I was a bit mind-blocked about what to do. This time I had to go through all my nail polishes and think of something! That doesn't happen often, I usually have an idea in my mind and maybe swing between colors, but that's it. Finally, I came up with a holographic tape mani.

I used Voodoo by LA Colors Color Craze, a beautiful emerald green as a base and then I did a triangle with Jade Groove by Layla Hologram Effect. I had never used holographic nail polish I was surprised by it's consistency, it seems that it has that it has to be applied in very few streaks and fast otherwise it becomes goopy.

And Voodoo....wow! you know this is super cheap nail polish (LA Colors), but it went on like butter and had a super soft finish. That is something I love about this brand. It may not be the best or most exclusive but it works really well and they have amazing colors. Have you ever tried them?

Well, that's going to be it for me...have a great day!

 
 
 
 

ESPAÑOL:

Hola chicas! Este es mi primer manicure después del reto y esta vez tuve que repasar tooodooos mis esmaltes para ver que se me ocurria hacer. Fue un poco frustrante porque casi siempre ya tengo la idea en mi cabeza y solo tengo que elegir los colores pero esta vez estaba un tanto bloqueada!

Vi este precioso verde esmeralda Voodoo de LA Colors Color Craze y decidi usarlo...esta increíble, además de que a pesar de que estos esmaltes son super baratos no esta nada pero nada mal. Tiene super buena cobertura y un acabado super liso. Nada de pincelazos, no, no, perfecto! Yo los consigo en Todo Moda a $20 pesos... fabuloso no? Eso sí, tienes que andarlos "pescando" porque no siempre tienen todos los colores, asi que cuando veas uno que te guste compralo! quiza a la proxima vez ya no esté.


El esmalte que usé para los triángulos es el tono 05 Jade Groove de la línea Hologram Effect de Layla. Nunca había usado un esmalte holográfico así que no conocía su consistencia. Se debe aplicar rápido y sin pasar muchas veces el pincel porque se hace chicloso...y después de unos segundos...taa-daa! el efecto holografico se revela! Súper!

Espero que les haya gustado y que tengan un lindo día!

  1. YAY! First Christmas mani of the season! It's the Most Wonderful Nail Polish Time of the Year!!!!! :)

    Mari...confession here: Last weekend, I pulled out our artificial Christmas tree from storage, and set it up. It's one of those with lights already built in. As soon as I washed all the dishes from my family's Thanksgiving feast? I plugged the Christmas tree in! LOL.

    LOVE the mani. It screams HOLIDAY BLING!
