Quicksand In The Spotlight

I was busy deleting photos from my phone when I came across pics of a mani I’ve never shown you! I was quite surprised since I’m quite good at posting what I’ve done. This was ages ago. I’ve only ever done one mani that I disliked so much I didn’t even take pictures. Anyway, here it is.


I started off with a base coat of Tip Top Miraculous Results. On my index and pinky I painted 2 coats of L.A. Girl Quicksand. I was pleasantly surprised to have no drying issues with this texture. The green and gold from this collection take ages to dry and really irk me, but this purple was on par with my China Glaze texture drying time. On my middle and ring nails I painted one coat of Sinful Colors Mint Apple and then one coat of Sinful Colors In The Spotlight. Mint Apple is a beautiful green polish with a silver shimmer. It is so pretty. In The Spotlight is a glitter topper with a lot of fine green glitter and then larger multi coloured glitter. I sealed the two green nails in with a coat of Seche Vite and voila. The result:




I must tell you I was quite pleased with how this turned out and this purple texture, although dark, has found a soft spot in my heart. I usually go for lighter/bright colours, but this purple can stay. I absolutely love it. What do you think?
