BBAC 2014, Day 16: Stripes NoTW

BBAC 2014, Day 16: Stripes NoTW

Posted on Monday, at

I started out thinking that I'd do a simple pair of diagonal lines over a foiled color, black polish over the top of the whole thing, then pull up the two stripes. I decided to try three stripes…and put polish over the top of half the nail. I like how the overall look turned out, though - as I said - there are some places where I could stand to improve. I now am keeping all my striping tape...

A medium-deep tarnished-copper with no sooty leave-behind. (Maybe 1/3 of the colors in Aromaleigh v1's Elemental Lustres collection had sooty leave-behind. About 1/4 of the shades in the Egyptian Treasures do. This is not one of them.)

Another highlight shade, like Heroic or Amber Eyes. Reindeer Dust is a very soft orange-tan that almost blends in with my skintone. There's a faint satin finish, and a green duotone shimmer - and both of those are what I see most when I wear this shade.

Slightly deeper pink than I was expecting. The “foiled” finish developed an odd whitish…film-thing…that I don't quite know what it is, but I don't really like it. It didn't go away after 15 minutes, either, so this wasn't just a product of “it's still curing all the way through”. I'll stick to dry application with this shade.
