Guest Blogger of the Month - July 2012: Scrangie

I am pleased to announce this month's Blogger of the Month.  She barely needs introduction, because I can say with confidence that she is the most well-known nail polish Blogger in the world.  That's right, not just America, everyone from Brazil to England knows who she is.  It is an honor for me to have her swatches here today: Scrangie.  She is the most notorious blogger in the Beauty industry and there are many reasons why.  Most times when I google swatches I type in brand, name, and Scrangie; why? because her swatches are flawless.  If I want color accurate pictures, a great review and description, and gorgeous nails, I turn to her blog.  When new collections are out, I want to see her swatches first, and I want to know what she thinks too, her blog really is the ultimate shopping guide for nail polish lovers.  Moreover, she is an inspiration to me and so many Bloggers out there.  She is super nice and always there if you have questions.  On top of having awesome swatches she is a total sweetheart.  Below is what she said about today's pictures.

"First, let me just say what an honor it is to be featured as a guest poster on Sparkly Vernis! Thank you for having me. For this occasion, I wanted to do something special on my nails, so I chose a layering combination that reminds me of my favorite season: Fall.

To create this look, I followed a 'jelly sandwich' layering technique using two of my favorite polishes. First, I applied a coat of Maybelline Juicy Tomato, one of the first jelly polishes I ever owned, and still one of my top favorite jellies of all time. Next, I applied a coat of Jordana Bronze Fest glitter followed by one more coat of Juicy Tomato, a final thin layer of Bronze Fest, and then topped off with a coat of Seche Vite topcoat.

The warm red color of Juicy Tomato combined with the golds, browns and bronzes in Bronze Fest makes me think of all the autumn colors that I love so much. Red, gold and brown leaves falling from the trees, the bright red apples that turn into amber-colored apple cider, and there's even a small amount of orangey-copper glitter in Bronze Fest that reminds me of Halloween pumpkins.

Layering the jelly polish over the first coat of glitter gives the look so much more depth than just layering glitter on top of a creme. The glitter particles underneath the red jelly sparkle and glow like embers, and the final coat of glitter on top showcases all the different shapes, sizes and colors that make up Bronze Fest.

It's nice to have a little reminder of fall on my nails just as we're in the middle of the hot, humid weather of summer. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!"

  2. I am warming up to more reds in my old age. The brighter and juicier the better. Perfect name for this polish. Glitter doesn't hurt either ;)
