Hey lovelies, Happy Tuesday! (:
Quick post today- this manicure was done quite sometime back but somehow I never posted it, so here’s its time to shine on the blog today. It’s a simple manicure really, done using Docile polishes, namely D217 & D218 as well as a black Uniball Signo gel pen.
I did the leopard print as an accent french tip(sort of french tip, considering I didn’t really leave it as a naked nail) using my gel pen over Docile 218, a gorgeous shimmery silver. The other nails were done using Docile 217, an almost gunmetal silver-grey polish.
All nails were around 2-3 coats if I recall correctly, and absolutely shimmered under the light. These photos were taken late at night as that was when I was doing my swatching…

Hey dears, apologies for such a long absence…I’m popping in a quick blog post before I head back to doing school work! Most of my assignments are due next week so it’s a rush D: However, I’ve managed to get some swatching and nail art done(yay!) so this blog can be kept alive hehe.~
I initially did this combination for a pair of earrings for our shop, Little Rain Designs (which will be listed soon) and liked the look. I thus decided to recreate it on my nails!
Here I have 2 coats of Docile D218 with 1 and a half (dabbed) coats of Gloss ‘n Sparkle Goodbye Sober Day. The base polish is this shimmering silver, and I picked it up in Sasa, which I guess can be considered a drugstore with a section of cheap polishes. I’ve honestly never heard of the brand before but the packaging and colours looked nice- and it was on a promotion of buy 2 get 1 free- so obviously I couldn’t resist. 😀
Goodbye Sober Day reminded me so much of clowns that’s why I decided to pair the entire thing with a clown for my accent nail. Love.
Honestly I’m not a huge fan of clowns myself…but I guess movies do that for you: taking an innocent childhood symbol and creating it into something creepy. :S
I’m not a fan of horror movies at all though so I’m not sure why I feel this way.
Anyhoo~ The way Docile D218 sparkles and shimmers is simply beautiful. It’s a nice polish to go-to if I’m feeling more “toned down”. Also, please forgive the difference in nail lengths…my index nail was flaking so I chopped it off to be much shorter than its fellow buddies.
