Gabrini Elegant 371 – flossed

As I already mentioned HERE, I had special manicure in mind for Gabrini 371.

I quickly fell in love with Gabrini polishes – the apply well, have lot of colors to choose from, their staying power is good and they have cute bottles. This time I have for you polish from Elegant collection – my favorite line from Gabrini.

Gabrini 371, 364

Gabrini Elegant 371 is almost blue black shade. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to buy it or not. Is this another black polish trying to be something els or is this really dark blue color. Fortunately, I bought it.

Sun kept hiding so shade came out little bit darker than in reality. I applied 2 coats + top coat. If you’re little more careful with application than me, one layer is enough.

I like this polish better in shade than in the sunshine.

First time I used this polish I wanted to do something special with it. I wanted something asymmetrical, not neat. If you’re not a fan of those kind of manicures – read on at your own discretion.

I knew I wanted to use chrome polishes and something in violet color. But with what should I apply them with? I didn’t want to large of a mess, and thread was to neat. So I used dental floss. I wasn’t using it anyway since it was to thick, so I might find better use for it, right?

I present to you the whole team from left to right: floss, Stargazer 236, Sally Hansen Crystal Chrome: Chrome Crystal, Peach Crystal, Lilac Crystal; Golden Rose 218 and Gabrini Elegant 371.

Technique it self is nothing special: I coted floss with polish and pressed it onto the nail. Here’s the result:

I had special top in mind to go with this manicure – sleeveless roll I decorated with Swarovski rhinestones.

Top swarovskiColor is more realistic in small square. I used Swarovski Aurora stones – they change color according to the colors surrounding them.

I usually combine the top with one of the three bracelets in my collection … depending on the occasion.

BraceletsI made the black one for the same dance performance as the top. I don’t wear it much these days. Top bracket I wear on more “gala” occasions, preferably with a skirt.

Last one is “party” bracelet – you could say this one has most of the mileage.

    Love the manicure. It almost looks like barbed wire on your nails. Your top with the crystals is really cute. Love the bracelets.

  2. Manikura je čudovita!!! :stars: Top in zapestnice sicer niso ekstra moj stil, po pravici povedano si jih tudi na tebi ne predstavljam, a k plesalki vsekakor sodijo. :wink: Verjetno je že vsaka prava plesalka kdaj lepila bleščice… :biggrin:
