After last weeks extremely complicated manicure I decided to do a very, very simple manicure this week.  No stickers, no rhinestones, just a very slight hint of glitter, two different base colors, one   stamping color, and one stamping design. I originally wanted my accent nails on both hands to be my ring fingers but because I did my traditional alternating mani, where one hand has more of one color than the other the lefthand  with the orange on the ring finger didn't turn out how I expected.  The glitter that I used was pretty much an exact match for the orange nail polish, so you couldn't really see it. So I decided to apply the glitter over my middle finger on my left hand because it was actually visible.  But because the glitter was so sparse, & it just looked way to plain, I used the same stamping design and applied a French tip on the nails with the glitter.


Here's what I used:
  • Base coat: +OPI Inc Nail Envy - original
  • Base color 1: Orange Wonderland by KleanColor 
  • Base color 2: Lunar by Almay
  • Top coat 1: Seche Vite Top Coat - I apply this before stamping, if I mess up I can remove the design without removing the base color
  • Stamp colors: +Konad Nail Brown
  • Top coat 2: IBD UV Top Coat cured under a 54 watt UV lamp for 5 minutes
  • IP: Dashica Beauty Shop - Big SdP X
Orange Wonderland by NanaCoco is a brilliantly, beautiful coppery-orange metallic polish.  Just like the other polishes from this brand, almost flawless. The brush is great, the application and formula are great as well. The only negative about this polish, is that it is not as opaque in one coat as all the others that I have try from this brand. It is slightly sheer, but not to the point where you have to apply two coats of polish. And you can see clearly see the brushstrokes in this polish; since I only applied one coat, I do not know if the second coat would lessen the visibility of the brushstrokes. But, I would still recommend this polished and still continue to use this particular color. 

Lunar, by Almay, was an extreme surprise!  It applied completely opaque and one coat, and the application was practically flawless.  Even though it has a small brush, similar to China Glaze, it's spread out perfectly and gave a beautiful application. The color is a perfect tan – nude color,with a slight bronze shimmer which unfortunately is not as visible.  The one negative about this polish is the smell… It is extremely strong and unlike the regular smell nail polish.  If you are sensitive to certain smells, I would not recommend this particular polish because it is very strong. I would suggest using this in a well ventilated area.  But other than the smell everything else about this polish was great, especially for the price of two for $1.

Poppy Fields, by KleanColor, is a coral – orange matte glitter, with fine and larger hexagon glitters. Sadly, I was utterly disappointed with this polish.  The glitter distribution of this Polish was just sad… hardly any gets on the brush.  Which is odd because the formula is packed with glitter, but I noticed that the brush was is larger and as you pull it through the neck of the bottle it basically wipes off the glitter.  I applied two coats, but it was still extremely sparse. If you don't like a lot of glitter this would  be a perfect choice. But I guess for $1 It's not the worst glitter I have ever tried.
