Guest Post ~ Knitty Nails

It’s great fun setting up a blog but once it’s up and running you do feel the need to keep it going for all your loyal readers so when Jade was unwell and needed a few guest posts I knew how she felt. Here’s my contribution and hope you feel better soon Jade x.

I have blogged something that I think is very special. Kerrie from Quirk designed a set of polishes, with the proceeds going to a charity called St Peters Hospice. Each was a one off and I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of them.

An Ocean Potion is a stunning mix of gold hexes, smaller blue, teal and gold hexes and tiny shimmery glitters, a perfect combination of ocean colours. The glitters capture the light beautifully, picking up a range of colours as well as blue, green and teal. It does have a teal coloured jelly base but for my nails it really needs undies.
This is quite a dense glitter and I imagine I’d get full coverage with a couple more coats; I probably will try it again soon and allow the pretty base colour to show.
Anyway, I generally like to set my glitters against a contrasting base and I chose Jacava Purple Promise. I love the contrast of the blue, green and gold against the deep purple, and I love that as I move my hands the predominant colour is purple and then teal depending on how the light catches it.
I have used 2 coats here, and the teal base has probably altered my Jacava a little but I am still very happy with the finished look.
This really is a very beautiful polish; I am so pleased that I was there at the right time to buy it! It will always be one of the special ones in my collection.
