NotD - Brava Aquatica

If you live anywhere around here you probably haven’t been able to escape from the ‘teen magazine’ Bravo. Personally I haven’t read a single issue, but even I’m aware of it and some of its features.
Why am I mentioning this? MNY decided to release their Island Dream LE in Collaboration with Bravo Girl… I picked up a couple of the polishes.
I also picked up a pretty shimmer polish that I combined with it.

Here’s what I used tonight:

  • OPI Nail Envy
  • mixed up ridge filler
  • MNY 176A
  • LOOK by BIPA nail tattoo liner 1 silver
  • LOOK by BIPA nail tattoo liner 3 black
  • p2 deep water love 020 green lagoon
  • Seche Vite

I began by applying one coat of either base, two of 176A and sealed the polish with Seche Vite.

MNY 176A is a bluish green crème polish, greener than teal, bluer than pine, brighter than slate green. I love it, it’s utterly divine. And it’s lovely and opaque in two coats.
MNY definitely did something right there, ‘cause this applied smoothly and evenly. The viscosity is just on the thick side of perfect, making the polish spread and level quite well without pooling. As usual, I love the narrow flat brush, I rarely have to do that little clean-up.
I can highly recommend this polish to anyone who can find it.

Here’s MNY 176A in two coats with top coat:

Then I added a silver stripe and outlined it in black. Looks odd and scary, right?

But it all gets less frightening with the coat of green lagoon plus some Seche Vite.

So yeah, really basic (also done quick ‘n’ dirty), but I’m not going to spend hours on a mani when I have major cleaning to do in the morning. ;-)
