Nail polish from Japan Part 2. Berry Color Nail.

This is the second polish I have to show you from the amazing collection of nail varnishes brought back from Japan for me by a rather lovely friend of mine!

This brand is called Berry Color Nail, unfortunately I have no idea what shade this is, my Japanese really isn’t that good lol. But if you know what if is please let me know! 😀

Again this is a colour that I wouldn’t have chosen myself, as I’m not really drawn to pale colours. But after applying it I think this is really rather pretty!

This is pale blue/green with gold, silver and iridescent micro glitters, it applied really easily, which is amazing considering the amount of glitter they managed to cram in!

It did take a bit longer to dry than I’m used to, but I think some fast dry top coat would sort that out!

It only took two coats to be opaque! When it dried the polish was really smooth and glossy, there was no grittiness as with some heavy glitter polishes.

I really think that I need more glittery nail polishes like this!  😀


Bird Cage Nails

I couldn’t resist doing a bit of stamping over Eternal Basic nuru 06 from yesterdays post!

I used Messy Mansion plate MM14 Which you can find here

For the little birds I used Color club Lumin-Iceant which is a lovely icy blue/silver foil.

I had a bit of trouble with getting the stamp for the cages to work, so I made a stamped decal using Color Club topcoat, Konad Special Polish in Black, and some more of the Lumin-Iceant. I had a bit of trouble sticking the top corner of the decal to my nail but I think that’s just because I made it a bit to thick.

I really like how this turned out, I have to say I don’t think that I have ever worn a pastel shade for so long lol


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 🙂
