Happy Friday all! I hope you’ve been enjoying my Sweet Shop inspired designs this week. I have saved my favourite until last. One and all, I give you: Fizzy Cola Bottles.
Fizzy Cola Bottles is quite unlike any other polish I have in my collection. It’s a light brown creme with tiny flecks of gold glitter in it that give it a gorgeous shimmery finish. You get a bit of a texture to the polish when you sponge it in a gradient, as I have here, but as you can see from the other nails it dries to a smooth finish when you apply it direct.
What do you think of brown polish? I guess it’s not a classic colour but there is so much classiness to this polish that I might be tempted away from my brights more often. It’s the perfect complement to the other colours in the Sweet Shop collection and a nice palette cleanser after all that pink and red.
For me, this polish has absolutely captured the essence of fizzy cola bottles – the colour and the texture and the finish are all spot on. I decided this polish needed a gradient to mimic the two-toned sweets themselves and I love how this came out! I started with a base of Tara’s Talons Nude on all of my nails, then I applied a gradient to two of them. To the others I used the brush in the bottle to paint out the shape of a cola bottle, and I added in the details with a Barry M Nail Art pen. I haven’t added any top coat to this design. The smell of the polish is just divine – definitely one of my favourite scents from the collection (it’s a strong tie with Liquorice Allsorts)!
So there you have all five. To check out the other posts in this collection, just follow the tag Sweet Shop. Which is your favourite?
