Nail Polish From Japan. Part 1 Eternal Basic Nuru 06

A rather lovely friend of mine went on holiday to Japan last year, and brought back some nail varnish! Seven bottles and a dot artist kit! 😀 Much better than a postcard!

The first polish I’m going to show you is from a company called Dear Laura, the range is Eternal Basic and the colour is Nuru 06. you can find the website (in English) Here

Nuru 06 is a pale turquoise creme polish, this really isn’t a colour I would have chosen myself, it’s good to try new things! After wearing it for a couple of days I’m starting to think it’s not that bad lol!

I found the formula for this polish to be on the thin side, and there was a bit of dragging and streaking while I was applying the second coat, but luckily the third coat built up the colour really well, and with the fourth coat it’s not noticeable at all.

The polish is really glossy, a lot more than my pictures are showing!

I have to say. How cute is this tiny bottle? I keep thinking it looks like a tiny blue pumpkin!

This polish really didn’t smell too bad and it dried really quickly even with having to apply four coats!

I think I would like to try a some other colours from this polish range… but it’s very unlikely at the moment… One day tho 🙂

Foiled Again! Stamped Peacock Feathers.

Foil Peacock

I started this with a base of two coats of Black Magic from Revlon. For the stamping I used a combination, of Cold Metal (blue), Perfect Mol-Ten (green), Hot Like Lava (pink) and Antiquated (gold) all from the foil range from Color Club.

I put a drop of each polish on the image and and poked them all around with my scraper until the stamping image was covered, before removing the excess, I did mess up a couple of times as I wasn’t quick enough transferring the image to my nail. The Color Club Foil polishes dry really fast, I didn’t even have the chance to line up the image :/

This is the first time I have tried stamping with more than two colours! I really like how it turned out 😀 even tho it was a pain to do!

The stamping plate I used is Messy Mansion Birdie plate MM14, which is available here.

I finished it off with a coat of color club top coat, The top coat is not too bad, it applied nicely and importantly didn’t mess up my stamping and it didn’t shrink…

After writing this I’m starting to think that this top coat might actually be rather good rather than not too bad! Lol.

It’s just I’m so used to using Seche Vite now that any other top coat lacks the thick glassy finish and seems to take for ever to dry! :/ Maybe I should start trying out other brands of topcoat, so is Poshe any good? What about HKgirl? 🙂

Halloween Spooky Green Spider Nail Art!

Behold! My spooky spider Halloween nails! 😀

Spooky Spiders!

Spooky Spiders!

I started off with a couple of coats of Happy Ending from Sinfulcolors which is a bright green with gold shimmer, when it was dry I used the cling film technique with Emerald City Which is a sparkly Matte polish from Revlon, I followed that with a coat of Seche Vite.

The spiderweb image is from Moyou from the Pro Collection XL 05 I used Night Moves from Barielle Shades, I find that It’s a really good silver polish for stamping, then another coat of Seche Vite.

For the spiders I used Konad special polish in black and my unbranded Halloween plated that I picked up on ebay, they are not the best quality but I like the images 🙂 And then, yes you have guessed it, another coat of SV. I like to use SV in between each layer of stamping in case I mess up the next image, this way I can carefully take off the offending bit of polish with a cotton bud dipped in acetone with out having to start again 🙂
