Magical Pegasus

This was was fun. I decided that Apricity looked like magical sparkles (all the little purple glitters and the larger purple squares and the greyed-out background) and so I went with something magical over it. In retrospect I wish I had used a darker stamping polish, but I do kinda love this manicure!

Apricity by Cadillacquer was one of my Thanksgiving weekend buys, and it is super pretty. It is a greyed out teal, think rainy day, but filled with tiny and small glitters of purple plus larger purple squares. I love square glitter. Other than circle glitter it is my absolute favorite. This polish is very jelly-like, so it took 4 coats. This would not generally be something I was pleased by, but due to how thin it was you could see SO MUCH GLITTER DEPTH. It was actually stunning and I will wear it again despite its 4 coat requirement.

I decided that something which looked like magical glitter sparkles (I was having a 12-year-old-girl moment) deserved mythical creatures. So I grabbed a Fairytale plate from MoYou London and went to town with pegasus! Little known fact: pegasus is one of my favorite mythical creatures because it is a standard pretty creature (horse) but with WINGS. Everyone else is always into unicorns. I like things that fly 🙂

In the end I didn’t adore this manicure, mostly because the stamping did not stand out as sharply as I would have liked. That said, I love the polish and it was overall a fun idea! Hope you enjoyed!
