Gothic Gala Lacquers Beach Duo + Nail Art

***Press Sample***

I tell you what, allergy colds that last over a week can just go off and die.  Going on day 9 now, and I'm finally able to hear fully out of my left ear.  Good thing it doesn't affect my nails, eh? ;)

Today I've got a perfect-for-summer brand new pair of polishes by Gothic Gala Lacquers to show you.  It is called the Beach Duo:

Let's take a closer look at the polishes individually, starting with "Ocean:"

Ocean is a lovely blue/green polish with an aqua blue/green shimmer throughout.  The polish applies like a dream and is opaque in about 3 coats, depending on how thick you apply (I always apply in thin coats, and am wearing three in the photo above).  It also dries very quickly in under 5 minutes to a shiny finish.

The second polish is "Sand:"

Outdoor shot in direct sunlight so you can see the glittery goodness of it!

Sand is a gorgeous micro glitter topper consisting of gold and brown glitters, as well as blue and green flakies that represent beach glass.  Because it is a micro glitter, there's a lot more coverage in each layer, so this polish could be full coverage in 2-3 coats (again, depending on how thick you apply).  It dries in under 5 minutes to a textured finish, so a nice coat of Smooth Me Over would even it out nicely, and a quick coat of HK Girl Glisten & Glow would make it shine nicely, and really bring out that shimmer and glitter.

This duo is so totally perfect for a beach scene!  It definitely reminds me of beach trips in the summer - so much so that I decided to do some nail art to emulate that feeling:

Little fishies and beach stones ^_^  That was my childhood growing up in Washington, taking trips to Puget Sound to play along the water's edge, flipping over stones to look for fun critters and crabs underneath :D
