#18

Yesterday’s choice is a mix I made years ago. I started out with Nivea 97 Berry gloss. This was a jelly like polish and these, in darker colours, never work on me because of my deep ridges. I seem to have added a cream blue and some silver sparkle to it, or a sparkly very blue…

15, 16 & 17

For 15 I wore a black with subtle warm-toned shimmers. 16 was a dud that is going into the garbage, not only is it yellow (bought to mix into greens, no doubt) It’s also runny and somehow, simultaneously, gloopy. So off it came to make space for 17, which is red. It is a double…

#14

I still haven’t even looked at the pictures in my camera’s card… Here comes another nail polish phone post. I applied two layers of my usual base coat, Catrice 9 in 1, and actually realised it looks pretty nice on its own, it even conceals the yellowing somewhat: Or perhaps I’m just feeling super lazy….

#12 & #13

Hi! I’ve been on vacation ;p I still don’t have access to my computer and the pictures in my camera, so this is a quick phone post. I don’t have pictures of #12. It got a bit screwed up right after application, and I was on vacation and I couldn’t care less. It was black…

#10 & #11

This is the colour I’ve been wearing for about a week, but it is too sheer to wear with no opaque base underneath (plus I didn’t do a good job to begin with). Correction: I actually like it more worn sheer -it is way more mermaid that way-, but this doesn’t combine well with my…

#9

Ok, enough with the easy colours: This is a shade I mixed myself, when my hair was orange.  That was years ago and of course  have no idea what I mixed anymore. I wanted the perfect warm brown to match my roots, I suppose I was going for some sort of monochrome thing, although perhaps in…

#7 & #8, corpse ombre

I have mixed feelings. It is the first time I do an ombre paint job using a sponge, and I failed at it. On the other hand I really like the colour scheme, because I’m a bit of a goth: I applied the translucent white as a base coat, then feathered one layer of the…

#6

I continue picking out the nice colours on my nail polish challenge. Today it was Kiko’s 300’s turn. A rather bright teal/petrol. It looks darker in the bottle and I wish it was deeper, in fact, it’d match the tips of my hair better. I’ve begun filing my nails to a point. A shallower ojive tip, a…

#5

Tuesday (yesterday) night I had already tired of my previous nail polish. Details on #4, which I’ve updated. To detox, I filed my nails a little rounder and went for a dark colour. Kiko 227, dark rouge noir, is fantastic, a blackened berry. It is nearly black, but obviously enough still red. This bottle is…

Nail polish challenge #3

I feel like I am cheating on this, taking the best colours first. Last week’s nail polish was a hurried application at a friend’s, and I didn’t use a base coat. I used the Kiko topcoat mentioned below, which I don’t think is very crack or scratch resistant, bit soft… By yesterday (Thursday) it was…

For the record… (Nail polish challenge #2)

I’ll update later with which colour this is (it’s Essence). Didn’t have the bottle at hand, or the right lens, but here it is anyway, week #2 of the nail polish challenge thing. Since I dyed my hair blue, it’s blue: Edit: Essence show your feet toe nail polish antibacterial formula (?????) 02 deep blue…
