Berry Blast Off


This is 3 thin coats of NYC Manhatten, followed by 2 coats of At Deco pink stripe polish, a purposely messy addition of Raspberry glitter and a few of those fake rhinestones set into wet Top Coat. I really should have used 2 coats of top Coat, becuase this glitter textured and marred what should have been a shiny surface.

It's strange how some glitter nail polish is smoothe and only needs a light coat of Top Coat, and some glitter polish needs 2 or even 3 coats to get a shiny even surface. I got these fake rhinestones from the DollarRama and if they are covered by polish, any polish, the shiny finish clouds over. So now I just set them into wet top coat.

These fake rhinestones hung on for the day despite being placed into wet Top Coat..... My thumb nails and ring nails lost a few gems towards the evening but none of them got stuck in my hair.... this time!


NYC New York Color Manhatten, Art Deco Pink Stripe Polish, Icing Raspberry Glitter






I used a piece of spaghetti ( not cooked lol ) to pick up these gems and place them into wet TC

My Right hand, which I plan on adding to more posts.... my left hand gets all the glory

Icing No-Name Glitter...... I think I'll call it Raspberry Glitter

Really lovely as usual... great colours!!
But this time I have to confess I would have skipped the glitter over the design... I think the stones and the shapes would have stand out more without it!

I'm so happy your using so many NYC polishes. Also happy that I've got them all. This is a beautiful shade. I think I like the manicure before the glitter.

What a great look! I own NYC 'Manhattan' and am very tempted to try something similar with this polish. Thanks for a great look. :)

Well named! I love the colors together. Oh, and I think that polish may be a mini of Icing's Party Hardy (just checked my stash, boy do I have a lot of untrieds!)
