OK, so I said I would be posting a mani featuring Shades of Phoenix ‘Bad Kitty’. But literally as I pressed publish on those words, a package fell through the letterbox containing these two gorgeous polishes, so I had to try them out! Warning, pic heavy post ahead…
More after the jump!
I saw a preview of ‘I’ll Need Wine’ on the Freckles Polish Facebook page, and knew that I had to have it. A beautiful burgundy colour, with holo shimmers running through.
I started with a coat of OPI Nail Envy, and then followed with two coats of ‘I’ll Need Wine’. In my excitement I painted every nail, and had to remove the ring fingers (on both hands!) so I could use ‘Kicking Up Leaves’ for their stamping base. Application of both colours was easy, on shorter nails you might get away with one coat but I needed two. This pic is two coats plus a coat of Seche Vite, taken with flash because the sun is refusing to shine today.
I then used ‘I’ll Need Wine’ and a Cheeky stamping plate to stamp the spirals on my ring finger.
I find stamping a bit difficult because my nails are quite curved, and I had to restamp by the cuticle, but hey, its only my second go so far!
Hopefully my photos are looking better now, I’ve finally got a new battery for my DSLR.
As the sun refused to co-operate, the best I could do was an overexposed flash shot to show the holo in both these polishes
Freckles Polishes are available from their Etsy shop, I bought the mini size which are now sold out, but 10ml bottles are available for £6.50 and are 4-free.
Aren’t they gorgeous? I’m keeping this mani on as long as I can!
