I did this lovely (ish) mani on Sunday night. Unfortunately I had already severely split my thumbnail and teabagging it wasn’t working, and then I split the middle finger on the other hand, so I guess my nails were telling me they were too weak, so I chopped them all down :’-( they feel really strange now, really sort of sharp and weak but they will start to grow again soon.
Anyway here is the said mani:
Base coat: Revlon (Color Beam Sheer range) Night Light - from the pound shop (or Dollar store as you guys call it which sounds so much better!)Konad was done in Deep Jungle and Blue Pearl Princess Polishes, and M29
The little pink flower gem came with my Pro Salon Kit (I'd like to add, I knocked THEM ALL out of the container and spent about 15 minutes picking them up with tweezers 😦 )
I’ve had the Revlon a while, bought it in the ‘dollar store’ because I really liked it, but it’s just TOO sheer for me normally. However I really fancied something a bit more sheer when I did this and it’s about the only sheer I have, so it got used. It says it is free of two of the big three, so I’m not sure if it’s free of all of them or not. It is very thin and watery but it did apply well, and although you can’t tell from these pics, it’s got a nice shimmer to it, and it’s a bit more lilac than it looks in these pics. The only thing I don’t like is, it makes the tips of your nails look green for some reason! I may consider using it to layer over another colour next time.
