Hello lovelies!

I’m back with another post! I meant to have these swatches up last week, but never got around to posting them for whatever reason, but here they are now! This Indie Showoff posts features more beauties from Love, Angeline, so yeah, on to the photos.

When He Shakes His Mane was released back in 2014 as part of the This Is The End collection (which I believe was inspired by the Chronicles of Narnia? Possibly? I’ve never actually read the books or watched the movies…) Anywho! While I think this polish is really lovely especially when you’re looking for something soft and delicate to wear, I’m not a 100% in love with this one. The formula tends to be a bit streaky (which is fairly common with pastels,) but I’m also realizing that it doesn’t play kindly with my skin tone (no fault of the polish, just personal preference.) Overall, this polish is kind of a miss for me but I bet there’s other people out there that would love this one.

This is another polish that was released in the 2014 This Is The End collection! If I remember correctly, there were a few polishes released that all had a similar shimmer and flakies but featured different base colors. Now, this blue color does play better with my skin tone and I’m loving it! The formula is slightly streaky like the above polish and I am noticing some patchiness in my swatches, but this polish makes a great nail art base so I can overlook those flaws.

Now, onto some nail art!

For the nail art featuring When He Shakes His Mane, I wanted to paint something soft to match the polish. This quilt from Red Pepper Quilts was the perfect inspiration find! Shockingly, I really loved this look!

  1. Start with three coats of When He Shakes His Mane.
  2. Then using a striping brush and acrylic paint, lay down the diagonal lines.
  3. Go back in with a dotting tool to add on the polka dots.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a layer of Cult Nails Wax That…

Now, for Sons Of Adam I really didn’t have anything specific in mind for the nail art but I knew that I wanted something to contrast the blue color. These earrings from Rustica Jewelry worked wonderfully as inspiration!

Unfortunately (again, sorry guys) both of these polishes have been discontinued. But don’t forget to look at blog sales and destashes! I believe that’s where I found these two. To see what Love, Angeline has been up to recently, check out the following links:
