Frankenpolish: By the swamp

Hello!

Just a quick post today, exams are coming and that means less time for anything, that is not school related :( It's been some time since I showed you any of my frankens. For this one I mixed yellow and shimmery glass flecked blue (I believe it was LA girls Punk). The result is shimmery green with blue flecks. It looks so swampy and dirty and I love it :) The only bad things is that it's sheer so it needed three coats.

Etude house PWH905 Boom Boom Boom

Hello!

Glitter bomb wiiiiiii :) Who doesn't like that? I got this baby a while ago on eBay and it's a fun mix of different shaped chunky glitters (bars and diamond ones) in white, black, silver, red and purple. For the base I used Essence Got a secret, two coats of pale grey creme. Then I added two coats of Boom Boom Boom. I needed two coats cause I'm ditsy and didn't notice that the glitters sunk down a bit. Should have shake the bottle and then one coat would be enough. The glitters are quite chunky so I added a thick coat of topcoat which sadly resulted in some bubbling. I still like this combination :)

Catrice Mint me up

There is a special place in hell for you, Catrice. First they ruin the brush even more and now the quality has one down the hill too. I am no Hulk, I just opened the bottle to check how bad the brush is and when I closed it, it snapped and broke. Fortunately I had a few empty bottle around so I could pour it into a new bottle, otherwise I could just toss it in the trash. Gah it's so sad since Catrice used to be one of my favourite brands :(
The only thing that I like about this polish is the color. Pretty mint/seafoam green with bronze specks and gold shimmer. Application wasn't the best, the polish is quite thick and goopey. I can't even imagine how the application would go with the "new and improved" brush :) Oh well Catrice, it was fun while it lasted.

Summertime gradient

Hello!

I usually don't do gradients but when I do, I pick colors that are too similar for my camera to tell them apart. You're welcome :)
For the base I used Essence Off to Miami!, gorgeous bright coral which I love but my camera always freaks out with shades like this. Application was not the best, the polish is pretty thick yet still sheer. I believe it took two to three coats, depends on the nail because the polish is streaky and isn't self leveling. Then I used a kitchen sponge and sponged some Essence Naughty and pink! on the tips. The gradient was more noticeable in real life, I think the coral base was messing up my camera too much so it just gave up and was like fuck it, I'll make every color look the same.
Gradients are really easy and fun so I will do it again in the future, just with a bit more contrasting colors.

Golden rose Jolly jewels 107

Hello!

How is everybody? This is my last "old" post, photos I took before my nail broke and it got better so you can expect new and regular posts from now on :) That makes me really happy and I even included damage photos at the end of this post.
I was craving swimming lately and this polish is perfect cause it reminds me of the sea.
This is Golden rose Jolly jewels in 107, too bad this beauty doesn't have a name. I got it from Gin from her trip to Bosnia. Jolly jewels is a really good collection, too bad it isn't available in Slovenia. They're such great quality, I love the brush and the glitters are really packed. On photos I have on one coat of 107 over a blue base (Essence Let's get lost). You could probably get it opaque in 2 to 3 coats.
In my opinion this combination of blue glitters is just perfect <3





 

My nail broke while wearing this mani, I know we all love pics like this :) Please ignore how horribly stained my nails are.
