Nails Of The Week: Hey, Dreamer!

          The Holidays are coming and it is the time of the year to be festive. I will be starting this season with my nails by packing lots and lots of glitters and other sparkly things. I am so glad I will be able to share with you my Nails Of The Week, the type of posts I write about back then when I still have the time in the world. The last I posted something like was way back in January (10 months ago!), which is kind of inconsistency my part considering that I used to post a lot. Haha! That's life, we grow up and go on our own. We need to work for ourselves because we can't be dependent on our parents forever. Okay. Enough of blabbering. :)
          Just this week, I purchased a couple nail lacquers from Watsons. Season-appropriate colors were my target as I wanted share posts about nails again. As I have searched the racks of the nail section, I spotted this some sort of cornflower blue shade. Sometimes, it appears to be more on the violet side, and sometimes more on the blue side. I thought this kind of resembles a White Christmas feeling. Isn't it cute? This is the Chic Nail Color in the color "Dreamer" from the Boho Chic Collection

          Going back to the main purpose of this post, I have applied this on my nails. I went for two coats for opacity. You could see the swatch of this product on the picture above. 

          Then I have layered my nails with two coats of this glittery nail polish called Bobbie Premium Nail Creme in the color "The Big Bang" (Glaze). As you can see in the swatch, it appears to be a grey glitter nail polish with octagon-shaped bigger glitters in different colors. I was expected a clear polish but I didn't mind. I thought this would a step up the combination a bit. 

          The combinations looks like this. It's kind of different, right? I love the outcome. It looks like s mermaid-inspired nails. Please excuse the mess, I will clean that later. Haha! How I wish you could see this in person. It looks prettier. I think the natural light might have washed out the colors. 

          Here's an another close-up shot of my finished nails. You can now see the colors better. By the way, I applied a top coat on the Dreamer nail polish before I layered it with the The Big Bang polish to have a smoother smoother look. 

          Do you like the combination as well? Do you want more posts like this? Please let me know by leaving a comment. If you have done something like this, please post a picture on Instagram and tag me. :) I will check your post. I hope you enjoyed this post. Thank you so much for reading and stopping. I'll post again soon. Have a nice day! Stay safe. Enjoy the holiday. XOXO
