Aerial Nude

Today I am showing something you have NOT seen in this blog before: VNL pure. Visible nail line that is. Many times I wrote that I'm not any fan of it and I usually try to avoid it, layering as many coats of polish as it takes to cover it. But - rereading the name of my blog - I had to try it once :) The opportunity came together with a swap package from Zelinda - she sent me Cliché Areia as a nice extra.

You see, you see?? Here it is, the VNL! :) After 4 coats - this polish was never meant to be opaque actually, the name "areia" means.. NO, NOT AIR!!!

...but "sand". Oh well, I was confused till the last moment : ) The polish is a very light nude peachy jelly, very transparent as well, but I'd rather name it "air" than "sand". Application was quite easy but loooong, all these 4 coats + base + top, uff! At least all the coats dried fast.

Honestly speaking, Areia looks much prettier on the photos than in reality. When I was wearing it, I couldn't decide if I liked the nail look or not. The VNL thing was still confusing, but I promised myself to try this polish in a glitter sandwich :) It's called "sand" after all, I just need to find the "wich" part :)

After some days I added a BM-314 stamping pattern on top. I still wasn't sure if I liked the result, but it matched one of my T-shirts :)

What's your attitude to VNL? Love it? Hate it? Tell me! :)

  1. 4 слоя это перебор для меня, я бы с ним попращалась!)) А со стемпингом ОЧЕНЬ красиво, зря сомневаетесь, очень ажурно и винтажно смотрится! Мне очень понравилось)

    1. Спасибо!) Я не знаю, что меня смущает, наверное просто очень непривычно, у меня первый раз в жизни линию улыбки видно :) А 4 слоя.. для меня это не повод прощаться с лаками, штук 10 таких засранцев (простите :) в коллекции)

  2. I hate it :) but sometimes I feel like I need to try it too. But then again, I'm not happy with it. So it's an eternal circle :P
    I do like your manicure with the stamping on top!!

    1. Haha, alles klar :) I don't like VNL either but I HAD to try it once! I'm glad you like the stamping, I'm not sure I did, probably because of the "peachy" background.

  3. I'm with you in disliking VNL :) I'm not sure if I like the Sand alone, but it's definitely beautiful with the stamped pattern you chose!

    1. Thanks!! I'm glad you liked the stamping (I'm still not sure if I'm satisfied myself), and that you share my opinion about VNL :)

  4. I actually like this nude tone against your skin (I am also NOT a nude fan myself), and I think it would be OK the let it be sheer.
    But I must admit I love it even more with the stamping over it LOL

    1. Yes, I was also surprised that it didn't make my hands look red... I like nudes from time to time, but opaque ones :) I'm impressed that everyone likes the stamping... :)

    1. Я рада, что вам нравится, я до сих пор не определилась. Вроде и не плохо, но эта видимая улыбка... Вообще этот лак и в 2 слоя нормально лежит без проплешин, я просто старалась улыбку скрыть)

  6. I hate that kind of nail polishes... but maybe in a french mani it could be nice.
    Sorry for senting you something so bad! :s
    I loved the stamp in top of it!

    Kisses,

    1. NO NO NO!! I wouldn't call it bad!! It's just very unusual for me, thank you for giving me a chance to try such a polish :) A French mani is a nice idea! I'll try it! Or a glitter sandwich.

  7. This shade looks really good on you!
    I too normally try to avoid VNL, but I don't mind it on lovely nails like yours, with elegant & long nail beds, whereas mine are really short and with, err, what's-it-called, too much of the white tips :S (a sad result of years of biting)

    1. Well, thank you so much! Personally I don't have that I have a long nail bed, it's just kinda proportional to my quite long fingers. But thanks anyway for your nice comment! :)

  8. Я такие лаки люблю, но не в 4 слоя. Зато какая красота со стемпингом, просто чистый гипюр, супер-супер!
    И еще - вот тут видно, какая у тебя длиннюющщщщщщщая ногтевая пластина, красиво

    1. Спасибо :) Она на самом деле не длиннющая, просто пропорциональна довольно-таки длинным [и костлявым] пальцам. Знаю, что 4 это перебор, но так как выбирала не сама и в принципе планирую его пустить на сэндвичи - прощу :)

  10. I don't like VNL and try to avoid it if possible. Aeria looks ok on it's own but with stamping it looks fabulous :D

  11. Очень красиво на тебе ! Такие руки изящные, загляденье! Я тоже ВНЛ не люблю, но если бы у меня не были желтые ногти, то я бы поэкспериментировала с ней. А так - не судьба..

    1. Я знала, что ты заценишь, спасибо!!! :) Я кстати думала, что ты равнодушна к ВНЛ :) У меня та же история - желтые кончики, причем, если честно, я их даже отбеливать не пытаюсь, так как не выхожу без лака)

  12. I think you're actually one of not too many people who can sure pull it off because you've got long nail beds. so it looks great on you.

    I've got a polish that color-wise looks similar on me and - guess what? - it's called Samoan SAND! i guess it's because they're kind of beigey-yellowish nudes.

    i also love to wear it matified - the idea's not mine though - i've seen it on a couple of blogs. looks great!

    1. Thanks, that's very flattering to read :) Oh, if you mean the OPI Samoan Sand... I keep seeing the swatches and thinking: looks nice, but not my shade, won't match my skin. Maybe if I ever get to try it, I will prove myself wrong, who knows :) Thanks for the idea of making a nude matte, must be cool, I have to try it! :)
