Put some glitter on it

Hello sweeties,

Yes, I know. ANOTHER NAIL POST. I must say that I’d like to talk about something else, but I don’t really have the time to. I haven’t been to the cinema for quite a while, I don’t have the time to read graphics (I really, really miss that), I’m not doing cooking experiences at the moment, I’m not that much on the Internet neither. Because, you know, the word that can’t be said… EXAMS. But I promise next month will be funnier.

Back to the nails. I wanted to try Smoldering by NYX for a while, because that colour intrigued me, as I couldn’t really identify it.

In the bottle it looks like an iridescent brown. But on the nails, I have to admit that I’m pretty floored. It’s between very dark brown and charcoal. I’m very tempted to say that it’s a fake black, with a fine purple undertone. It’s very pretty, but hard to define and to take a pic of it. I really like this shade, but, of course, I couldn’t help myself putting some glitter on it.

glitterI used Dorthy by NYX, 2 coats on the ring fingers and applied in gradient on the other nails. The 2 nail polishes really match, as the light iridescent side of Smoldering softens the colour. I think if I applied Dorthy on a real black, it would be too kitsch, too much.

I believe Smoldering would do a great base for galaxy nails. I should try another time. Meanwhile, you can buy Smoldering and Dorthy here.

So bright that it blinds you

Hello sweeties,

Let’s talk about one of my last bought E.L.F. nail polishes, Coral Dream. I know, it’s not an *appropriate* colour for winter, but I just couldn’t wait till summer to try it.

The colour is very bright, almost fluorescent actually. It’s a little peachy, there’s a lot more of yellow in the shade than it looks like on the website. The brush’s hairs are quite thick, which is not very practical. The application might be tricky. But the texture of the nail polish and the intensity of the colour are great to me. I applied 2 coats, but if the brush’s hairs were thinner, I guess one coat would be enough.
