NOTD: Dirty Pink Mauve "37.8C" by UNT

 


A very brief NOTD featuring a rather recently-acquired UNT nail polish.  The pics above show my left hand under cloudy sunlight *i.e. natural*, and my right hand under office fluorescent lighting *i.e. artificial*.  Clearly, my left hand painting my right hand is significantly sloppier than the opposite.  Anyway...

UNT nail polishes are sold mainly on their website.  Consistency-wise, it is very very good for its price.  I used 2 to 3 coats to achieve this effect, but I'd say 2 should be enough if your application is even.  They name their polishes with lovely names, e.g. this is called 37.8 degree Celcius. (external link to a Chinese blog)

This shade, however, is not as pretty as I thought.  It is a little too dark and flat and mature to my tasting and skin colour.  It would be the perfect lady-like grown-up pink for skin tones darker than mine.  It looks too beige-brown on me.

Anyway, I'm gonna conclude with what I used on my nails: OPI Nail Envy Original, UNT AS015 37.8, Seche Vite top coat, Orly Flash Dry drops.

 


Beautiful wishes,


Lazy silly Jacq :")
