Hello Lacquer Luvers! Today I get to share with you an oldie but goodie. While visiting family and friends during the holiday's I made a few trips to Sally's & this was one of the polishes that I picked up - China Glaze Secret Peri-wink-le. This beauty is part of China Glaze's 2008 Operation Color Collection.
For my mani today, I began with China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat followed by two coats of Secret Peri-wink-le. This dusty cream is essentially exactly the color of it's name - periwinkle. It's right in between being lavender and blue. The formula seemed a bit watery (not sure if it was just my bottle or if it's because it's an older color and the formula itself has changed). I was, however, able to reach full opacity in just two coats and didn't have much of a problem with application.
For nail art, I went ahead and water marbled all of my nails. For my marble, I used Jordana French Manicure polishes in White & Barely Pink. Barely Pink is a sheer polish & when you use it for marbling it has a transparent effect that allows the base color to peek through. Pretty cool, huh? To seal in my manicure, I used Essie's Good To Go topcoat.
I really like how this came out. It's simple but pretty. Secret Peri-wink-le is a very unique color in my collection and I can see myself wearing this alot in the spring. Do you ladies own this color? What do you think of my marble? As always, I hope you all liked this post my dear Lacquer Luvers and I look forward to sharing my next post with you, xo!
