KB Shimmer - Elle, Candy Lacquer - Sugar Skulls, (Swizzles Matlow - Love Hearts lol).
First off I went for the KB Shimmer which has a lovely sheer grey base with a mix of red, holo, silver and white hexes, both big and small. I really like the red pieces, not bright red, a lovely pale/pinky shade; just beautiful in the grey. I am a huge fan of grey nails on my fingers and toes so decided to stay true to the base with the Barry M Grey. Two coats of that followed by two of the Elle. I loved it like that... but then I had an urge to pop a matte top coat on the top and boy, I loved it even more! :)

Next up the Candy Lacquer - Sugar Skulls :) Love this! A mix of small pink, white, blue and yellow hexes; with some large white and yellow hexes and some white and pink heart shapes for good measure! Sparce it is not! I took my inspiration for this mani from the name and decided to go for some actual sugar skulls too! Seemed obvious to me!! I chose a base of neon purple for the thumb, middle and pinky fingers and white for the index and ring fingers. Over the purple I did two coats of the Sugar Skulls polish; over the white I painted some sugar skulls using only dotting tools. I picked out the pink, yellow and blue from the indie polish and also took the purple from my other nails as the colours for my skulls. What do you think?? I only wish my nails were wider for a fuller picture! What are your favourite indie polishes??
