Pinstripes

“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”.

  1. Oooooh schööön! Dieser Glitzer taucht das Grau in eine Art Zwielicht, das sieht richtig toll aus! Irgendwie magisch… ❤

  2. Ooooh, der helle Lack ist ja toll 🙂 Die beiden passen perfekt zusammen, aber ich finde ja den helle Lack ein bisschen spannender!

  3. Ich finde es auch toll, irgendwie hat es durch den Glitter und die Streifen was “bewegtes”, also irgendwie lebendig-3D-mäßig, wenn man so will 🙂
    Bin schon gespannt auf deine Auswahl zum Mittelblau morgen!
    Liebe Grüße,

    • … und ich erst! 😀
      Ich bin heute erst spät nachmittag von einem stark verlängerten Osterwochenende nach Hause gekommen und habe noch so gar keinen Plan für morgen. Erstmal muss ich sowieso gucken, daß meine Nagelhaut und ich wieder Freunde werden, die habe ich die letzten Tage ziemlich leiden lassen. *seufz*
      Danke für den lieben Kommentar! 🙂
