Hope you all had a good weekend! Mine wasn't great - I lost my favourite nail on Saturday (my left thumb nail - my longest and strongest is now my shortest *sniff*).Today for Sun-Tried-Day I have three more essies bought from Fragrance Direct, for £1.99 each! Unfortunately since then their stocks have been seriously depleted, but I'm always browsing over there, so if they do get them back in stock, I'll definitely pick up a couple more! They're a great brand - I can see why people rave about them. I'm just too cheap to pay £8 for them!
Would you believe me if I said I had no idea Action was a neon until I put it on? Because that's the truth lol. In the bottle it looks like a bright orange, sure, but not neon! So I didn't put a white base on. This is 3 coats for full opacity (with a white base, you would only need 1 or 2).
|I hurt my arm, so my 'claw' pics look a bit weird - sorry!|
I would say this is a lesson to Google swatches before buying, but I actually did! I still didn't realise it was neon lol (the pictures were all with topcoat - sneaky!)
Bikini So Teeny is a colour I've seen a lot of online, and I'm trying to expand my blue collection, so in the basket it went. This is 2 coats.
|Still struggling with the old hand position!|
It's ever so pretty - a pale, pastel cornflowery blue, soft and dusty. It reminds me of a hot, still, summer afternoon, and it's very different to the sky blues I have a hundred of. To be honest I need darker blues (I don't own a navy creme!), but this is a welcome addition to my blue collection.
Mojito Madness I threw in my basket, just because it was green! I've accepted the fact that I love green polish. I might not be happy about it, but I've accepted it. This is 2 coats.
I suppose that from the name, this is a lime green polish, but personally I wouldn't describe it as lime. I would describe it as an appley, grassy green, which is why I'm not in charge of colours lol. This isn't my favourite green - it has a slightly dull, muted quality that I love in some shades, but dislike in this one. I'm contrary! But I would probably reach for Revlon Emerald, or OPI Jade is the New Black over this one. They can't all be winners! It might grow on me though.
