Tired of taupe cremes? A layering experiment with CND’s Gold Sparkle, Jade Sparkle and Sugar Sparkle

 

Hi everyone!

I know, I know. Beeing tired of taupe cremes? Crazy talk!
But seriously. So many brands are releasing taupe/brown-gray/greige/indefinable nail polishes that at some point you could get a bit overwhelmed or even bored by them.
With Ingrid from their Vintage Vixen Fall 2010 collection China Glaze brought a breath of fresh air into the taupe hype with adding a bit of shimmer to the nail polish.

I am not tired of taupe cremes yet and I must admit: the more the merrier but after a few days of wearing American Apparel’s Mouse I got bored and wanted to remove it. Right in time an order with three CND Effects nail polishes arrived so I decided – inspired by Ingrid – to layer them on top of Mouse before I would remove it.

 

Let’s take a closer look at how CND’s Gold Sparkle, Jade Sparkle and Sugar Sparkle look over Mouse. :)

Edit alert! I added pictures of Crimson Sparkle and Amethyst Sparkle. 😀

Sigh.. I can’t get enough of the Sparkle Effects! :)
Do you have a favorite CND Effects or an other favorite layering nail polish?

Thanks for looking and have a great Sunday!

  1. i was thinking the same thing. i took a clean bottle and filledit 2/3 full of sallty hansen commander in chic and the rest with wet n wild color craze in shield, a shimmery, mettalic, cool gold. it looks really nice , i thought. i also got something that looks very similar to chanel’s paradoxal by taking another clean bottle and filling it again with about 2/3 commander in chic and the rest with opi’s ink. paradoxal kinda looked like particuliere mixed with vendetta, so it made sense to me.
