When a Selkie meets and Elephant!

So, a little while ago in my posting world I posted my swatches of China Glaze Elephant walk, it was nice but I thought I could improve upon the end result. How you may ask? Well, since I have been blog stalking I have noticed that Fingers Polish Mania puts Selkie from Lilaquer polish on *every* mani and it makes it pop that much more. So I ordered a few polishes from Lilaquer's Etsy Store and one of them had to be Selkie! Selkie is a blue/green duochrome top coat that is just lovely and can turn any frown upside down I reackon! LOL.

 As you can see, this has transformed Elephant Walk (which I thought was a bit meh) to something I would love and admire for hours and hours :) Selkie is an awesome topcoat over any polish as you can see it add just a little bit without subtracting anything from the original polish or changing it. Green/blue shift is right up my alley, but Lilaquer also make some reds/orange shifting top coats. So go check out the etsy store! 

What do think of a duochroming top coat, do you need one? I do!

  1. Grey nail polish is not one of my faves. Selkie is aptly named,makes Elephant Walk look much prettier. I once saw a movie about a Selkie who took a human husband.Tragic :-(

  2. Selkie looks gorgeous. I have Girly Bits Cosmic Ocean but I'm still tempted to pick up Selkie. I love topcoats like this that just add a little something extra to a polish. It can make boring polishes gorgeous or just keep you entertained in a creme mani after a few days. :)
