The Nail Challenge Collaborative presents: Stripes - Nostalgic plaid

Hi all!

This month's theme for the Nail Challenge collaborative is Stripes. I wasn't feeling it until I realised that plaid is made of stripes as well. Thought it would be rather appropriate for autumn and so is Nostalgia. I wanted this polish since it was released in December 2013. I bought my bottle in April this year and it was sitting in my Helmer unused until now. I wasn't feeling the colours for spring or summer. But for autumn, absolutely, it's perfect! It's all the colours leaves change to in autum in one bottle!

Only two polishes for today:

I am wearing two coats of Nostalgia (no black undies!), it looks rather sheer on the first coat, but it is opaque with the second. It does show brushstrokes and I'm not the best at avoiding those. I added black stripes in a random plaid pattern on all the nails with a striping brush. My bottle of Black is getting thicker, rather annoying, my stripes turned out alright though. When it was completely dry I added a coat of G&G HK Girl top coat.

Photographing Nostalgia (or any other multi chrome) is difficult, but hopefully my photos show how pretty it is. It shifts from green to mustard yellow to copper and red. It's gorgeous.

All the colours in one photo! Yay! You can still get your hands on Nostalgia here. There's also a holofied version if you like!

More stripes down here!
