Silver Dots

I grabbed a few polishes from A England during their last sale. The ones I grabbed were mostly from The Mythicals collection as I fell in love not only with their colors but with their names too! The Mythicals collection polishes seems like they were names after characters form the legend of King Arthur and Merlin. One of my favorite stories ever!
I wanted to try something new on my blog today took out my dotting tool and A England Excalibur. I first made a line through the middle of my nails with Excalibur and topped that with a thinner streak of China Glaze Exotic Encounters. I was thinking to add another stripe on to it but instead took my dotting tool and went to town! If anything went wrong I could always paint over the dots right? 😛
This is my first time ever using an A England polish and I can say I love Excalibur! It is a really nice silver foil and I think it may be a one coater! I shall have to try it on it’s own one day to find out.
I am looking at my mani and am thinking, Exotic Encounters is kinda like a dragon-y color and Excalibur was forged in the dragons breath – how apt! LOL.

Matte Love

SH’s Sun Kissed is wearing surprisingly well! Even after 4 days there was hardly any tip wear. I usually change my mani every 3 or 4 days but seeing how nicely this mani is holding up I decided to spruce it up one more time. This time with a matte top coat. And I am totally loving what I’m looking at!

My little bottle of magic is China Glaze’s Matte Magic. I actually got the mini (9.6ml) bottle because I was scared I wouldn’t like it. How wrong I was then!

My right hand actually looks better with the matte top coat if you ask me. The other colours seemed more muted which went well with the yellow on my middle finger.

The 3D effect from not using a regular shiny top coat is still apparent with the matte top coat 😀
