Something rather strange happened today… I was planning on creating a stamped gradient but I did the sponging and my nails where so pretty that I just couldn’t bring myself to stamp over them! oO
Blue Black Gradient
I started with two coats of Black Magic from Revlon, and made the gradient with Sally Hansen Diamond Strength in Pure Midnight and Cold Metal from Color Club.
It’s so shimmery and sparkly! 😀
Blue Black Gradient
I think this is a case of less is more!

Today I have some Swatches from Jess to show you, Pixie, a teal iridescent, Dancing Queen a pink foil, and Atomic a purple duo-chrome. The Jess nail polish range is from Poundland, and cost rather obvious £1 each! 😀
This is Pixie
This is a really nice and my favorite of the three. The colour is a dark teal iridescent with a gold flash. The application was easy, the formula is actually really nice, if a little thin, it does smell of cheap nail polish, (probably because it is lol) it’s very chemical. But it’s really not bad for £1. This is two coats with no base coat or top coat.
This polish is called Dancing Queen
Dancing Queen is a pink foil polish, again it has a very chemical smell, the application was ok, there was a little dragging from the second coat and there are some visible brush strokes, it’s a very bright pink colour, it’s worth £1 but I wouldn’t spend any more than that on it. This was three coats with no top or base coat.
Finally this is Atomic
In the bottle this polish looked really pretty, purple to green duo-chrome, on application unfortunately it was rubbish, there’s hardly any pigment in this polish at all 😦 I first tried without undies first but I think it would have taken 6 coats to reach a decent amount of colour! so here it is, two coats over Revlon Black Magic.
It went blue! And hardly any sign of the duo-chrome finish, and it had the same chemical smell as the others 😦 Is it worth £1? No, which is a shame as I love a good duo-chrome polish, and a nice one for £1 I would probably buy all of them! lol!
Out of these three I really like Pixie, it’s worth the £1 and the smell lol!
