Squiggly Lines

This mani is a little different than what I usually do but did this as part of my ongoing quest to experiment more with layering and stamping.....anyway; here's what I came up with.

Started with two coats of Magnetic Largo Lilac; this is with no topcoat.  Application was good and it covered nicely in two coats which really surprised me as it is such a pale colour.

Magnetic Largo Lilac is one of three polishes in a boxed set called Florida Moods.  They are a trio of pretty, delicate colours.  However, as I'm experimenting more and more with layering for different looks and how they stamp, I decided to layer some glitter on top; after checking out my stash, decided on Icing Glitteratti.

Loved how this layering turned out...makes me wonder why I had never reached for Icing Glitteratti in the past!  Holo!...Glitter!...what's not to love? These two colours seem made for one another! 

Even though I loved how the layering turned out, rarely does a mani go by that I don't end up putting on some type of stamping...and again, am experimenting more with layering of polishes and stamping, so when I was searching for images, I seen the squiggly lines on MJ II and thought it would be a good image to still see the base and glitter beneath. The only problem was trying to figure out what stamping polish to use.  I decided upon Konad Red Wine, which is a little odd choice, but it didn't turn out too bad.

I did want to point out that IRL, this polish stamped a deep purple and complimented the base and glitter least I thought so!  However, under the glare of the lights for the photo, it does have a reddish is called wine after all! lol!  But I don't think it was this bright IRL.  None the less, I didn't mind it and as I say so often, thank goodness its just polish and can easily be removed anyway!  In hindsight, there are dark purple cremes that may have stamped well that I could have used....maybe next time!

Thank you to Nadia at Magnetic Canada** for sending this polish along with my order of Magnetic Freakin' Violet.  One of these days, I'll get around to showing Magnetic Freakin' is freakin' amazing! 

Hope you're having a fantastic day...thanks for looking!

**This polish was sent to me for review.  Please see my disclosure policy for further information.


  1. Wow, this turned out fantastic!! I absolutely adore the whole combination, including the wine squiggly lines and purple glitter, I think they looks aweseome together. BRAVO!

  2. I seriously love the stamping choice here, it's PERFECT.

  3. The squiggly lines are awesome! I need that plate! :)

  4. I must do that squiggle stamp! I've been playing with layering and stamping as well-but I usually layer on top of the stamp-maybe I need to try this way!
