Colour Alike ~ Soul Bossa

Colour Alike ~ Soul Bossa
Lagoon blue with holo flakes

The more polish you have, the harder it is to pick what to wear – isn’t that just ironic!

After rummaging around in the box of untrieds for a bit I ended up with a beautiful blue polish from Colour Alike.

The formula is nice. It seems sheer but builds up to full opacity in two coats. The drying time is good.

I decided to go for a simple stamp today, in order not to overwhelm the beauty of the blue. The stripes are from Lina’s stamping plate “Feeling Shapely! 07”. I stamped with El Corazón’s stamping polish “Bisgue”.

Here is my final manicure, including a layer of topcoat. The photo is taken in daylight, no sun.

Here’s “Soul Bossa” alone; two coats and no topcoat. It’s so beautiful in ordinary daylight.

Here are the things I used today.

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Jelly with holo flakes
Overall impression: Nice formula that builds up in two coats. I love the effect.

OPI ~ DS Tourmaline

OPI ~ DS Tourmaline
Pink base with iridescent shimmer and glitter

Today I’m wearing pink! :D

The formula of DS Tourmaline is good. The formula looks a bit sheer but I manage to get full coverage in two coats. The drying time is really good.

I paired it with a neon pink from W7 which is called “It’s Pink” (great name, isn’t it), and I placed hexagons where the two polishes meet.

Here’s my manicure photographed in ordinary daylight, no sun.

And this is DS Tourmaline on its own; two coats and a thin layer of topcoat. This is also a daylight picture.

Here’s the stuff I used today lined up.

I didn’t use tape when I applied the neon pink. I covered up my little unevenesses with the hexagons :D

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Shimmer / microglitter
Overall impression: This is such a sweet and girly polish, I like it
Buy again: Yes

Born Pretty dream catcher stickers

Born Pretty dream catcher stickers

Here’s the last thing from the latest package from Born Pretty Store! It’s a package of nail stickers with cute little dreamcatchers on.

The sheet of nail stickers looks like this:

I think they’re all super cute! I was in the mood for the dreamcatchers though, so they were the ones I went with.

The base colour is Colour Alike’s “#511” dapped with two other polishes from Colour Alike: “In Your Eyes” and “Samba”.

This is how pretty it turned out. This photo is taken with flash.

This is the same thing taken in daylight.

This is #511 alone, just for the record. It’s two coats and no topcoat taken in the sun.

Here are the polishes and the remaining stickers.

The verdict so far:

Really cool designs
Easy to work with
Easy way to decorate your nails

I can’t think of any
