I was SUPER excited to get the Mario Dollish Polish collection recently (I'm not 100% sure it's called "Mario" but you know what I mean). I had to wear Dyno-mite Yoshi first!! I chose a dark green creme StrangeBeautiful from volume VIII to wear under (two coats).
Let's see...I am pretty sure I used two coats of Dino-mite Yoshi here. Then I used a coat of Gelous and a coat of Butter London top coat over everything. It was smooth except for a few spots where the little white glitters were (they remind me of eggs!). Those white glitters are very poofy and three dimensional.
Okay, so this picture above? It was getting ready to storm when I hurriedly snapped these pictures. The sun got covered up there for a second, but I like how the gold and red little glitters are glowing.
I can't help but realize that this mani could also easily double as a Christmas theme, however, being the major Yoshi lover that I am, I have to insist that it's perfectly perfect for anytime that you want to think about the cute little dinosaur or happy times playing Mario video games!
Here are some bonus shots of the super cool Happy Hands Lolita. I took these pictures indoors tonight, thus the lame lighting. Also, the camera freaked out about the color. It's a bright pinky coral and there is much more differentiation between the colors of the glitters inside - pink, red, and yellow - than what you see here.
I used two coats of Milani Neon Pink Rocks! underneath a thick sort of coat of Lolita, applied in a combination of brushing and dabbing motions. I topped it all with two coats of Gelous and a coat of Butter London top coat.
I absolutely love Lolita. It's so ridiculously pretty and I hardly ever say that or feel that way about a pink polish. It's gorgeous! I wish I had better luck with the formula, though. I was probably rushing it because I had quite a few bubbles.
I ordered StrangeBeautiful vol. VIII from Lucky Scent, Dollish Polish Dino-mite Yoshi from Llarowe, and Lolita from Happy Hands. You can click on the names for links, if you like.
