This was actually a little challenge I came up for a quick warm up sketch by drawing both Kamui’s and Azura without references and without using a rough sketch (and I thought I would fail at remembering male Kamui’s hair xD)
Sinful Colors Hottie with a dab of Kleancolor Chunky Copper, overlaid with Wet n’ Wild Kaleidoscope.
Riften overlaid with Chunky Holo Black.
Lilac Coolers overlaid with Chunky Copper, Chunky Holo Black, and Fantasy Fire.
OPI Just Spotted the Lizard overlaid with Dragonspell and Chunky Copper; fades to Hottie.
I couldn’t decide what to do, so I DID IT ALL.
The real Chunky Holo Black is incredible, especially for a $3-$4 polish; it’s ridiculous.
I was worried about Riften upon seeing it flat on my palette, but it’s awesome on the nail. Berry-amber shift (like Sally Hansen Nail Prisms - Amber Ruby) with a subtle golden green on the edges. Makes me miss running around with my sword and spells in the Autumn Forest. Highly recommend PrettyJelly; she’s great.
L'Oreal Lilac Coolers is pretty and layers well.
Dragonspell by ALIQUIDLaquer. Beautiful & unique.
Essie’s Bouncer, It’s Me!. I wanted an electric blue jelly and since Essie is so popular I expected good quality. But the application is streaky and uneven, and it dries to a finish that looks like cheap blue candle wax. Not one to wear without a topcoat, for sure.
One week until the new season of Game of Thrones! I can’t wait to see what happens with Jon Snow and Khaleesi! I really love the dragon scale nails and the iridescence and 3d look. They actually are textured, created by painting the base color first and then when it is still a bit wet, you sort of carve the angles out of them.
