I love it when a neutral has a hidden something that just makes it pop. A shimmer, a flash, something. This brown, Warm He-art-ed by Finger Paints has a subtle red flash that you can only see at certain angles. I caught it a little bit in my middle finger and pinky, right around the light reflections. Love that. Anywho, then I decided it needed an accent so I added a coat of butterLONDON’s West End Wonderland to my ring finger.


Base coats are Orly Nailtrition and Butter London Nail Foundation. Top coat is Seche Vite.

The last sin I have to show off is Wrath. The challenge on this one was to show off something goth, vampy, or otherwise dark. I’d never done a ruffian mani before, and I’m not sue I really achieved it now, but I do like it. The gold is Bite Me! by Pure Ice and the main color is called WTF F 32 14 by Vivid Lacquer, or as I’ve nicknamed it Vamp Stamp. The WTF line by VL is one-offs and colors that didn’t make it into production. This one is a burgundy/purple jelly with purple shimmer and purple/blue flakies as you can see on my middle finger there. I’ll have to try this look again sometime.

For Gluttony, the key is layers. On some of these nails, there are 13 or 14 layers counting base and top coats. It’s supposed to be a goldfish bowl, but the goldfish is so hard to see!! The background blue is Zoya Liberty, the gravel at the bottom is Finger Paints Kozmotology, then the plants on my thumb and pinky are stamped in Sally Hansen Parrot using Vivid Lacquer’s Christmas plate VL016. The snail on my index finger is Essie No Place Like Chrome and the plate is Cheeky CH43, the goldfish on my middle finger was stamped in KleanColor Metallic Orange using plate CH43 plus a few bubbles of Zoya Monet. On my ring finger, the treasure chest is stamped in Orly Buried Treasure using CH49, then each nail got a touch up of the Finger Paints and a thin layer of Zoya Frida to give it that “looking through water” look. There are also MANY layers of SV in there.

This lovely polish is Chyna by Zoya, my take on Lust. The challenge was to make everyone seeing your entry immediately decide they needed the polish in question. Chyna is a deep ruby red texture polish with tons of sparkle. I can’t handle leaving the texture polishes alone though, so this has a generous helping of SV on top which just added to the depth.
