Today I will be showing you guys how to do a simple gold and black tape mani, playing with matte and shiny finishes.
All polishes used in this tutorial were provided by the wonderful Live Love Polish. They’re currently having a Black Friday sale from now until Monday Dec 1st. Don’t miss out! Today’s tutorial features LVX Alchemy. This is a gorgeous high-shine gold jam packed with shimmer.
The swatches below are taken under direct light so you can see it’s beauty. *_*. The formula is excellent, fully opaque after 2 coats with a top coat. (Top coat is really optional for this polish).
For today’s prompt I decided to paint Loki in all the shiny nail polishes. *_*
I’ve recently developed an obsession for holographic nail polish as it is beautiful under the sunlight as well as to photograph. The one featured here is ILNP Iconic on my thumb. It’s a soft, exquisite gold holographic. It may look like your normal typical gold in the shade, but bam! When you see it under direct light, this polish just comes to life.
This color is so fun. Heroic is part of Formula X’s Effects collection called The Shifters. Sephora describes it as a two-toned metallic lacquer that shimmers with a kaleidoscopic effect. Heroic’s color is a lilac-gold. In one direction it looks like a shimmery lilac, in another direction it looks more gold. It’s a great classy shimmer if you’re looking for something mature but fun.
