Piper Polish – Night Fall & Melon Balla

 

Happy Easter ! I hope that everyone has Friday off, here in France we have to work 😦

I have two Piper Polish shades to show you this evening – Night Fall and Melon Balla.

I ordered these a while ago, but I guess they got checked by the import people or something, because they took a while to arrive. Still, all’s well that ends well and they got here safe and sound 🙂

Night Fall is a cool gun-metal metallic grey. There is a smattering of blue to pink colour shift in the shimmer, very hard to photo !

This is just one coat. The formula was thicker than I am comfortable with, but okay. I added a bit of thinner after these swatches, and now it’s just perfect 🙂

It’s a pretty handy colour to have in my stash – good for any season !

I picked up Melon Balla because I’m a bit obsessed with finding the perfect apricot shade for spring !

This is a pretty original colour, the shimmer is a delicate purple. That’s not a colour combo I’ve seen before. The particles were a little larger and grittier than I expected, but the formula was about the right consistency for me, and it actually evens out very well. This is just 2 coats, as you can see, it is fairly smooth, even without top coat! I do love the almost-matte finish.

One thing I would say about these polishes is that they start to set very fast. I strongly recommend that you go for several thin coats and let the polish auto-level – overworking it will not end well – see my ring finger if you don’t believe me !

 

I also picked up the Piper Polish Spectraflair Top Coat – swatches coming soon !
