ABC Challenge: D is for Dream On & Debris


Hi there, everyone!  It's time for another ABC Challenge manicure!  We're on to the letter "D". I think I missed the obvious "doticure" here when I was coming up with something to do.  I decided to combine 2 polishes that start with "D" instead.  Here's what I got:


....more after the jump....





 I started with 1 coat of Sinful Colors Dream On, a fuchsia jelly, then topped it with Cirque's Debris.  Debris is a clear base with micro holographic glitter and black and silver square and hex glitter (my high school English teacher is cringing at that sentence, I'm sure).  After Debris dried, I decided I wanted a jelly sandwich, so I applied another coat of Dream On and topped everything with Seche Vite.



Again, you'll notice the camera freak out.  Dream On is a difficult color to capture and I had to do a lot of fiddling with color correction.  I've just about had it with my camera/lighting situation, so look for some changes coming soon!


I will say that this mani rocks!  Who doesn't love a good jelly sandwich?!  The color really pops and I love how the black bits in Debris look like seeds almost.  

I'm so excited to see what the other gals in the Challenge have come up with this week.  Please go visit a few of them and give 'em some love!  You can find the links below :)

Thanks so much for reading!

  3. Looks great! Cool idea to sandwich it :) My camera freaks out with colors like this too but for some reason my iPhone 4S handles them like a champion.

    1. Thanks, Ria. I tried to catch it on my Samsung Blaze as well, but that camera couldn't handle it either. Maybe I'll look into an iPhone for my next smart phone :)

  4. I feel the same way about my picture situation. I want a camera that actually captures colors true to real life.

    But, this mani is cute! I love Dream On, too :)

    1. I'm still learning a lot about photography in general, and I'm convinced it's something I'm doing or not doing. My camera is actually fairly decent, but who knows?
      Thanks!

    As for your English teacher, I think she'd approve.

    1. I used to really dislike them because they dry to a weird semi-matte finish. I didn't realize you could top coat them and bring out all the fabulous squishy color! Thank you!
