Bourjois – So Laque – Adora-bleu

Hello girlies, sorry for my absence yesterday. I’ve caught a big fat cold (thank you, horrible cold, wet May!) and wasn’t feeling too clever at all.

However, this week hasn’t been a total fail, I got given the most beautiful gift from a friend – nail polish of course !

In the words of the great Run DMC : “Check this out !”

Swatch – O.P.I. – Can’t Find My Czechbook – NL E75

I’m a total sucker for pale blue polish this spring. Can’t Find My Czechbook is from the O.P.I. Euro Centrale Collection and totally scratches that itch.

The formula is okay, you can see it streaks a bit – especially on my middle finger – you need to get the brush loaded just right, since it sets pretty fast. But since blues are always tricky to formulate, and pastels are usually streaky, I think it could have been a lot worse ! I’m sure top coat would have evened it out.

This is 3 coats, you can see the finish is pretty nice. A great, standard pastel blue for sunny days 🙂

O.P.I. – I Theodora You

I was totally lemming over this polish for a while. And it’s pretty nice !

The formula is pretty good, it doesn’t dry very fast but does have a glossy finish. However, it did streak a bit, which was especially noticeable on my super-white tips, so I did 3 1/2 coats to get this effect. Admittedly, I’m crap at applying gellies, I just coat them too thin so they don’t level too well. Anyway, I would recommend 2-3 thick coats on this instead of going with skinny layers.

Anyway, very happy with this one, it’s summery, girly and office friendly 🙂

Pre-Spring Challenge Day 7 – Pastel

So this weekend I added a photo to my gravatar. As much as I love taking photos of my hands, I’m not a big fan of my face, so this is a big step for me !

Today’s theme is a pastel tape mani. I used this as an excuse to try out an idea I’ve been thinking of for a while, it’s a fishtail, but with tape to create a small gap between the colours. I think the lilac is a bit too pale, but this turned out pretty well 🙂
