Playing catch-up!

I plan on spamming everyone with many pictures, lol! Hope no one minds-if you are curious about a polish and I haven't listed it...ask, and I shall find what I used!


First hmmm, maybe my pink/Breast Cancer Awareness manis... I know, October is over, but they were still great manis!


Above, Sally Hansen Twisted Pink with  diluted Nina Ultra Pro holo topcoat that spoke to me...
That's the full-strength version below, with my new all time Zoya Holy Grail topcoat. If you have bought any of these new NUP polishes in this different bottle...the brush is unbelievably HUGE! My poor skinny pinkie was swamped...

The Polish Hoochie introduced me to the Seche Ultra V-Best thing for slow drying Zoyas---I can now really love Zoyas!

Below, I can't remember if this was Sinful Colors...but I think it is...pretty slate gray with a blue-ish sheen to it. I stamped over it using LeaLAC stamping plates and Konad special pink stamping polish
Below... I think I used the diluted NUP holo polish (above)...not totally sure, though...But I liked it!
Below, my very first successful water marble!! Whoo-hoo! I used my 6Harts Secret Galaxy for the blue you see. I know I used my dotting tool a bit much, but that is ok, I guess, I was very proud of the result!
One last mani...My best friend gave me a Zoya that just  wasn't her color (not sure I believe her!) and here is my mani for the fist time using the Seche Ultra V....this was stamp-able in under 10 minutes, I was SO happy! Such a vibrant color, I thought, but clean-up was bugger...
 
 
 
Ok, slide show over...I hope you liked these!

I love being spammed like this LOL - a lot of cool manis, and I'm impressed by your WM, haven't tried that one myself, and feel confident that I cannot do it LOL

The Seche Vite Ultra V - is that for UV curing - or is it a new version of the "normal" Seche Vite - which I love and couldn't live without either....?

Gottwinkies said...

Maria-Thank you so much, you are so sweet! This Seche is very like the regular SV-BUT-it does not dry on its own, it has to be cured for 3 minutes under the UV lamp. It doesn't dry as thick and glossy with 1 coat, but it has the following perks: it can be used with polishes that don't tolerate "quick-dry" tc (Zoyas) and it doesn't shrink! It removes just like normal polishes, so it is not a gel. It does, however have a black pepper smell which I kind of like...

Thank you so much for explaining this. It really sounds like a very interesting top coat. I don't have a UV lamp, but I bet it also makes the polish longer lasting on a vacation or otherwise!

Maria, I was cheap and shopped around for a lamp-got one on Amazon for $30 USD...I figured that was 3 polishes, plus I wanted to try an duse to gel/lamp to do some other crafy things. I am really happy I got it now-My best friend has a ton of Zoyas she has been wanting to share with me...now I can try them!It does last fairly long..but not as long as regular gel polishes. I forgot to mention it cures all the polish layers under it...so nice!

Marias Nail Art said...

Yes, I know they are pretty cheap, but it would be too much for importing it within the "free of tax and fee" limit to Denmark from a non EU country. Ah well, I don't have many Zoya's but they do the shrinking on me too...

Abop Laquerlove said...

Congrats on the water marble! That SV sounds like the perfect topcoat for any nail art that requires pressure - stamping, tape manis, rub-on decals...!

You're so good at stamping, I wish I had that steady of a hand with those tools (mine always go a little sideways of where I want to put 'em) :D

Gottwinkies said...

Thank ABOP! I was just thrilled to have a way to enjoy Zoyas! They take well over an hour to dry for me, and then I was too tired to stamp!

Gottwinkies said...

You are a sweetie, Nail Nerd! Your nail art is kick-ass! No need for stamping if I could do what you do with a brush!
