I wasn't actually going to wear green again this week*, but it has made its way into my favourite colours. This is good, cos I've always had an irrational fear about wearing colour (except for purple and blue) and am generally found stomping about in black.
Anyway, my local chemists had a surprise in store for me t'other day. A green surprise.
Laura Paige 57 Limited Edition was the green surprise at the chemist. It's a metallic shimmery apple-green that isn't quite as vividly green as a Granny Smith apple, and not quite as golden as a Golden Delicious. It went on well, only taking two coats to look good and dried nice and fast. The finish was a little bit bumpy which was easily fixed with a quick going-over of top coat, and it was about then I realised that this polish would look bloody brilliant mattified.
I was wondering which matte top coat would win in a fight and put some to the test. The index finger (left) is sporting some Mavala Matt Top Coat, middle finger has Rimmel Pro Matte Finish and the ring finger got some ELF Matte Finisher. Couldn't decide which one was the best -- the Mavala was definitely the mattest but the other two looked more shimmery.
Today's Konad abuse is made with Superdrug MUA Shade 2 (black), Bundlemonster plate BM201 and the number '9'. The nails did originally have a stamping of gold but it hardly showed up at all. Can't go wrong with black, though.
Have to say that these new Bundlemonster full nail designs are really nicely done, good work!
*Did actually fancy wearing a bit of blue but there's an election & referendum today and I didn't want people thinking that I was a Tory :O
