Nouba Silver Holographic 482 LA1521

Nouba is an Italian brand I discovered while in California. The colors are numbered rather than named. I love a silver holo! This was my first Nouba purchase (482 LA1521). It was a bit pricey at $8.50 for a 7ml bottle from a boutique beauty supply house but I had to have it.

Application was quite easy, requiring only 2 coats. I did not apply a colored base coat and I enjoy the effect of my nail peeking through the glitter. HKG top coat was used but not really necessary as the polish is surprisingly smooth for so much glitter and bars.

I hope you enjoy it!

Fantasy Makers R.I.P. Once Upon a Time Halloween red glittah fest

Fantasy Makers R.I.P. Once Upon a Time Halloween red glittah fest

This color is part of Wet n Wild's Halloween 2012 collection. The bottles are rectangular with a rounded faux granite "headstone" top that reads R.I.P. Adorable.

Stunning dark grey gel base color that keeps building to black and sandwiches the red chunky glitter to your customization. Love the depth you can achieve with one product. This is 2 coats of Fantasy Makers R.I.P. Once Upon a Time over Yellow Stopper base coat with Hong Kong Girl top coat. IRL it reads as a black polish with shots of red but in order to capture the glitter, I had to take the picture in bright sunlight.
