Toujours Pretty

Paul & Joe nail enamel bottles are super pretty! That was the main reason to purchase one. I chose number 29 Toujours, which means 'always' in French.
Toujours is a lovely peach pink creme which needs3 coats to become opaque. The formula is good and it dries fast. 
Since I made the glitter nail art wheel, I find it easier to make glitter combinations. Today's combination will be Toujours with 2 layers of Nubar White Polka Dot. White Polka Dot is a clear base with lots of white hexagon glitters and micro glitters that shine blue and green. 

Have a great one!

Present and Past Visions

This is another one from the Essence Breaking Dawn Part 2 collection: Alice Had A Vision - Again
It's a dark purple base with lots of purple and green glitters. The formula was a bit thick. The pictures show 3 coats of Alice Had A Vision - Again plus topcoat.
There is another mani created with one from the old Essence Vampire's Love collection.
I used The Dawn Is Broken as base. Then I draw a rectangle with Essence Galactic Black and placed gold bullion beads on top of the black rectangle.

Have a great one!
