Good afternoon all!!
I have a quick post for you all today of a mani I did way back when. I've got some catching up to do on blog posts of manis I've done LOL!
I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with my I <3 NY collection, and specifically Can't Colour Enough. If you are not familiar with this collection or lacquer, it was a collection I came up with inspired by my fave TV show, Sex And The City. It is a five piece collection of glitter jellies, each one inspired by the five main characters: Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, Charlotte, and Mr. Big. Can't Colour Enough was inspired by Samantha Jones and her colourful and out-there personality and fashion. It's a neon pink jelly with a little bit of extra fine holographic glitter for that shimmer and sparkle to represent the life in the fast lane aspect of Samantha. It's then loaded with many different glitters of different shapes and sizes kind of like a party confetti to represent all the high profile PR events and parties that Samantha attended and organized/hosted. And for those unfamiliar with Samantha's famous quote from the first movie, the girls were all sitting having coffee/breakfast and Charlotte had her daughter Lily with her and didn't want the girls using the word "sex" so they used "colour" instead so they could still talk about sex without Lily really knowing or understanding. Samantha said "I can't colour enough, I would colour all day every day If I had my way, I would use every crayon in my box". Hence the name of the lacquer :)
So for this mani, I used two China Glaze neon lacquers from last year's summer neon collection - Hang-Ten Toes and Flirty Tankini. I did two coats of Flirty Tankini on my ring and index fingers and did two coats of Hang-Ten Toes on my remaining three fingers. I then did one thin coat of Can't Colour Enough over top everything and topped it all with Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.
All photos were taken indoors near a window for natural lighting and without flash.
If interested, you can purchase any of the lacquers from my I <3 NY collection from my etsy shop here. Each lacquer is $8.00 CAD for full-sized bottles or you can purchase the entire set of 5 full-sized bottles for $32.00 CAD (basically buy 4, get he 5th for free) with code "NYSET32". I also have a mini set of the entire collection available for $16.00 CAD.
