Gina Tricot Zinfandel

Yaaay! We’re finally at the end of the ABC-challenge. Today’s letter is Z, and today’s polish is Gina Tricot’s Zinfandel. Gina Tricot is a Swedish clothes store who started selling their own collection of nail polishes hmm last year, maybe? Or was it in 2011?

Anyway, Zinfandel is a beautiful burgundy, sort of a dark red color with a little brown in it. Creme finish, smooth application. Below are two coats of Zinfandel with one coat of Seche Vite top coat. Unfortunately it stained a lot when removing it, and I had to go over my nails an extra time with a cotton pad and nail polish remover. That’s too bad. But since it’s so pigmented, maybe it will work well as a stamping polish? I’ll try that some day.

Thank you for joining me during my ABC-challenge! I will now take a break from challenges who are as long as this one, and I’ll also start writing in both Swedish and English. Enjoy!

Nah, I’ll keep writing in English. I need to practice.

Burgundy and bronze gradient

Hi everyone! Today’s Nail art sunday at Lelack and here’s my entry:

I did a gradient with two coats Gina Tricot’s Zinfandel as a base. Then I used a small piece of a make-up sponge and sponged on some of H&M’s Bronze (see picture below). Then I applied one coat of H&M’s Stay Golden (also on picture below), which is different shapes and sizes of gold glitter in a clear base. I then sealed the nail art with one coat of Seche Vite top coat.
