Pearlescent

Hey guys!

Today I have a swatch and review of some pearlescent powder from Born Pretty Store (#39324).
I bought color #7, which is a pink to aqua blue to green powder (when over white)


I applied the powder over white (here I used Essence Wild White Ways) using the chrome powder technique by JauntyJuli. It was really easy to apply - I was actually surprised by how easy it was to use.
The only downside to this product is the fact that you can not use a regular top coat on top of it, as it will ruin the effect.


I think this powder is so beautiful! The pictures does not do them justice, but it was hard to capture the effect and I had to take pictures outside my light box to capture more of the effect, which unfortunately made the picture quality worse.

Lemming

Hey guys!

Today I have a swatch and review of a long time lemming of mine: the beautiful Cupcake Polish Berry Good Looking!
Berry Good Looking is a purple linear holographic nail polish.

The formula is amazing and it applies smoothly to the nails. The opacity is incredible as well and it is almost completely opaque in one coat (I applied two coats on the pictures below though).


Close up!

Edit: I have been made aware that there is numerous formulations of this polish - this one being a darker purple than the original (that I have seen swatches of online). I have to say that I am disappointed and even though it is a stunning shade, it is not what I expected.

Stay polished.

piCture pOlish Blue

Hey guys!

Today I have a swatch and review of piCture pOlish Blue.
Blue is a bright cobalt blue creme (it is actually a dupe to Chanel Vibrato - let me know if you want a comparison).

The formula is amazing on this polish! It stays exactly where you put it, which makes it incredibly easy to work with. The opacity is good and it needs two coats to be completely opaque.


I always gravitate towards this shade of blue - seriously so beautiful!

Glitter Gradient

Hey guys!

Today I have some nail art to share with you - a glitter gradient inspired by @funlacquer!

To create this negative space glitter gradient I dapped the silver holographic glitter F.U.N Lacquer 24 Karat Diamond onto my naked nails with a make-up sponge.

Look at that beautiful holo!

Multichrome Glitter

Hey guys!

Today I have a review of this multichrome glitter that I got from Born Pretty Store (#39391).


The multichrome glitter goes from yellow to pink to purple to aqua blue - so beautiful.
I applied it by using the make-up sponge that comes with it by dabbing it onto semi-wet nail polish (here the base is the black Essie Licorice). Then I just removed the excess glitter with a fan brush.
This glitter goes on really easily (it is almost hard to control the amount of glitter that goes on the nails).


The only downsides to this multichrome glitter are that it reacts really weirdly to top coat (it turns all dull) and the mess it makes around the nails.
Except for that, I think it is a great product.

Then and Now

Hey guys!

Today I recreated my absolute most popular manicure ever - this rose gold french manicure.


For the manicure I started off with a milky base of Essie Adore-A-Ball on all my nails. Afterwards I freehanded the rose gold tips with the beautiful Essie Penny Talk.


I think it is so fun that this is my most popular manicure ever (it is really trending on Pinterest), because it is in no way the manicure I am most proud off!
