Today's challenge was a hard one for me, and one I almost didn't do. I am not a lover of brown in ANY way, and thus don't own many brown polishes at all. I do own severallllll taupes, but I didn't want to cheat.
By beautiful coincidence though, I was asked to review some polishes for a British indie called Dark Metal Lacquer, and one of the ones she sent me was a brown holo called Holy Mountains! How perfect is that lol.
I am not going to talk about that polish in *this* post (it's time will come), but it made a wonderful contrast in this mani to the creme base of w7 Buff.
I have almost always sucked at needle drag, but seeing Sveta Sanders bring them back with such popularity persuaded me to have another go. Shockingly, it didn't go too badly, although I did have to redo 2 of the nails.
I learnt 2 things - don't overload your contrast colour. Too much of the second colour and you get a blur, not a swirl.
Secondly - look how well that holo worked against the creme. I am in LOVE with that contrast.
Aaaah, anyone else craving a hot chocolate right now?
