Finally we had a little bit warmer summer day here in Finland too, so at last I can get to the summer mood, yay! Quite appropriately I have a really bright and summery manicure to share with you guys today.
I bought total of four polishes from the huge KBShimmer summer collection and for this look I compined two of those new polishes to one manicure. I used two coats of the gorgeous faded neon coral peach called Bahama Drama. Then I did a simple glitter gradient on top of Bahama Drama using KBShimmer holographic silver glitter called Alloy Matey!
Just a little while ago I also bought some new water decals from Hypnotic Polish. These are from a Russian brand called MILV and these are pretty new at Hypnotic Polish. They have quite a wide selection and I think these are great as they are a bit different than regular water decals. I was especially interested in trying out those silver/gold designs as I've been struggling a bit with silver and gold water decals. I've bought quite a few different decals in silver or gold, but pretty much all of them seem to have some quality issues. Based on my first try these MILV ones didn't really disappoint, I think these are the best quality silver water decals that I've used. They are quite thin so you need to be careful when applying your top coat over them but other than that they were pretty perfect.
Bahama Drama is seriously the most stunning summer shade there is, this is just pure perfection! I think it's the kind of neon shade that suits pretty much everyone. It's a bit bleached neon, so it doesn't look wrong with pale skin tone either, but it's still so very bright. The quality and formula were pretty great also, I only needed two easy coats for full coverage. If you haven't found your perfect coral summer neon yet, you should definitely check this one out!
