I used Barielle’s Buddah-full as a base and used bright neon-ish summer colors for tips.
The colors I used for the tip starting from the thumbs are – ChinaGlaze’s Flip Flop Fantasy, CG’s Flying Dragon ( love this name!), Three Beauties Neon Orange, Neon Green and Neon yellow.

I was quite happy with the brush as its not thin like some. Although not as wide as Opi, it does the job.
I find the formula for this a little bit thick so I can imagine it will work well for stamping.
Some more pics! This looks amazingly different when I use flash. Check out the bling!

The color is a wonderful periwinkle violet which works quite well with my skin tone. I am waiting to take some pics under the sun. Am quite sure it will be gorgeous πŸ™‚

To add interest, I used bundle monster stamping plate and did a layer of lace like design to bring out the the base color more. Sadly, it can only be seen under the flash (shucks!).

Barielle Island Breeze

Standard

Hi there, I realized I have tons of polish waiting for me to swatch!!! Arghhhh too many polishes and too little time. Ah well..
As mentioned in my earlier post, I used Island Breeze from Barielle as a base for my panda nails.
I like this polish a lot. For a host of reasons. It’s 3 free, it covers in two coats and the formula is great to work with. Not too runny or thick.

Check out the color in the bottle

There is a lovely lagoon shimmer to the color and shifts subtly from blue to turquoise shimmer. Love it!
For interest I topped this with two coats of Γ‰tude House large purple shimmer.
