Glisten & Glow

Hi everyone. Today I am sharing with you all swatches of Glisten & Glow polishes that I bought from The Indie Shop event. These are my very first Glisten & Glow polishes and I also got there HK girl top coat at the event. So here are the swatches.

Raspberry Margarita : Raspberry Margarita is a very saturated bright pink with linear holographic polish. This one is my favorite of the two. It was originally from Glisten & Glow's Cocktails Anyone? Collection. I used 3 thin coats for the pics below and sealed it with Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat.

Black Roses : Black Roses is a grape purple holographic polish. Very easy formula which looks dark and intense when exposed in sunlight. I used two coats for the pics below and sealed it with Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat.

Heart Drag Marble Mani

I am very happy as I type this post. After lot of trying and failed attempts, I have successfully created a hearts drag marble. I have tried this technique before but never had any success with it, until now. I got this beautiful polish from HnM last week called PurpleHeart Pearl. It was on sale in the HnM store for $1 and I couldn't resist buying this beautiful red shade of all. On this using Formula X's Dainty and a thin nail art brush, I created the drag hearts design and added some dots afterwords to give some life to the mani. I even created a video tutorial on how to create this nail art. Scroll all the way below to watch it.

HERE is the VIDEO TUTORIAL. Have you seen my YouTube channel - Nails Context yet?.

Polka and Pink

I have been out of nail art ideas lately and this is what I felt like creating, a cute pink design. I used Marc Jacob's Shocking (You can see it's swatch HERE) as the pink base. Then using Formula X's Dark Matter, I added thick lines and using Formula X's Dainty I created the dots and thin lines, free-hand using a nail art brush. Hope you all like it :)
