Blogust #6 - Short NOTD
Please excuse the condition of my nails in these pictures. They were post-holiday and I chopped/peeled off some of them for no special reason. I'm calling this Short NOTD because I will keep this short! Short description and review of the items used will be discussed below:
OPI Nail Envy Original - one of my all time favourite base coat. it doesn't perform growth-miracle to my nails, but does keep my nails in good condition. dries quickly and colour polishes layer over it smoothly. a bottle lasts pretty a long while. recommend!
Essie #Love, Beverly Hills xx - a gorgeous red, with real gold particles inside. one coat can be enough, but i went with 2 as usual. the consistency is spot on, but i hope they improve their brushes! (heard that the UK diffusion line has modified brushes, would like to try those...)
Models Own #Gold Rush - this could be my favourite gold nail polish out of the dozens. it has a near-foil effect. very shiny. the shade is a standard gold, not too yellow, not too pale, just right. consistency is very nice as well. if i could change something, i will change its brush, but well, for its price, it is already 'perfect' to me :D thx Sam for sending this to me!
DIY Top coat - half of it is Essie Good to Go, half is Seche Vite. very gloopy and gooey and thick. disgusting almost. but keeps colours vibrant and shiny for many days. warning: it is not a very good idea to mix topcoats like this. but i did so because i have too many bottles of half-used top/base coats.
What bright nail combo are you rocking in the midst of Summer? Is gold/red too much for me, or you? :D
I will be blogging daily in the month of August and calling this my Blogust'12. This idea was inspired by Sandra from this blog. Have a fabulous Summer break before the Autumn returns!
