“Grau” (grey) – this weeks color for “Lacke in Farbe … und Bunt!” by Lena and Cyw – is another of my favourite polish colors, so I had a hard time deciding which one in my collection to use. I managed to narrow it down to two bottles, but then just couldn’t bring myself to put one back in my Helmer. So I used them both in a classic pinstripe design:
“Immortal” is the darker of those two and packed with incredibly gorgeous multi-colored glitter flecks. It has a barely visible hint of green, which makes sense as it was part of a Halloween LE. 🙂 Application and drying time was ok, two coats and you are done.
“Discipline” has pretty much the same flecks, but they come in a much lighter and more jelly-like base. I used three coats, but as you can see, it still isn’t 100% opaque. It also took ages to dry, so this might be a polish better used for layering or as shimmer-topper instead of on its own.
For the pinstripes I simply used striping tape to mask the lighter stripes and added one coat of “Immortal”.
