What exactly is “supernatural”? Is a dragon? …probably not. Any other mythical beast that I want to paint? Nope. Ghosts are overdone. So, I settled on alchemical symbols!
My base is two coats of Poppy, by Anne Kathleen. While I like the color combination and I love the glowing finish of the yellow, I really couldn’t get past the grittiness of this polish. The tiny orange matte glitters rest on top of the polish when you paint your nails, such that they stick up. Two coats of top coat did not completely fix this…and I want my nail polish to be SMOOTH. (Unless, of course, it is designated as a textured polish, which this is not). So, while I like the color and the concept (and the polish went on smooth and easy in two coats with a fairly fast dry time), I just don’t like the grittiness of the glitter!
However, the glowering yellow-orange provided a perfect base for my celestial nail art. We have Mars, Jupiter, Mercury, Saturn, and the Sun. Given that I used my left hand to paint these, I think I did pretty well!
As I mentioned, even with lots of top coat, this polish was still gritty and textured. However, in the sunlight it really really glowed! I don’t know what could be done to make the polish a bit thicker (so that the glitter melds in) but as soon as I can figure it out I’m wearing this again. A yellow that is actually attractive!
- Yellow: Anne Kathleen – Poppy
- Black: Julie G – Black Sheep
This polish is part of Anne Katheleen’s first collection, Blossoms. I have one other polish from this collection which I will be showing in a few days (after the challenge ends!). A lot of these colors look really cool, if a bit odd!
Poppy retails for $10
