Here in Vienna the weather is getting a little nicer – more sun and warmer temperatures! I’m really happy about that because my poor skin suffers from cold and dry weather, and my hands are rough and my cuticles look horrible. Luckily, I made those pictures after a night of excessive moisterizing (I love those gloves I can wear during sleeping), so no horrible pictures for you.
I wore flormar U31, one of their supershine miracle polishes (that’s how they call it, not my idea!). It’s basically a glassfleck duochrome nail polish. U31 doesn’t need any underwear, it is opaque in 2 coats.
As always, duochromes look the best in daylight. That’s when the colour shift is most apparent (see pic above for proof!).
I decided to pair U31 with a scarf I brought back from India; it is one of my favourite scarfs. I just love the pattern, and the Indian blockprint is beautiful. If you visit India, you should go by one of the Anokhi stores. I love their home furnishing ideas, the clothes, the scarfs…
After a day I was bored so I added some crackle polish over U31. I’m so not over crackle polish, especially if I want to add something but not remove the nail polish. I used 2 different crackles, both from bpretty, which is the in-house brand from the Austrian drugstore chain bipa. The purple one is called “pure lilcac” and the green one is called “shiny grass”.
Do you like flormar polishes? And are you over the crackle trend yet?
