Coastal Scents ~ Comet

Coastal Scents ~ Comet
Dusty blue shimmery polish


This is my first polish from Coastal Scents. I like dark blue colours that don’t pretend to be black, so I decided to give this one a go.

The formula was quite good. Having said that, the first coat wasn’t very easy to apply evenly, but the second coat made up for that, and glided on like a dream.

Drying time was a bit on the slow side though, especially the second coat. Here it is, two coats, no top coat yet:


I wanted to stamp on it, and went for Bundlemonster’s plate BM15, the lizard.
I used Konad’s white stamping polish. After that I applied two coats of China Glaze’s Fairy dust, to add some shimmer and life to the lizard. I quite liked the depth it brought to my mani. One thick coat of Poshé’s top coat, and the mani was done:


There’s a funny thing I want to mention. The first little finger is always the hardest for me to stamp on, and this was no exception - so the first lizard ended up without a head. Doh! So I tried to stamp that on carefully afterward, but forgot to turn the stamp, so it ended up with the head on upside down! :D
Here’s my little mutant lizard: 


You think anyone will notice? ;)

Opacity: 8/10
Colour, prettiness: 6/10
Durability: 7/10
Value for money: 7/10
Overall: 7/10
Buy again: No

  1. LOL! I don't think anyone will notice the mutant lizard. This is a great manicure though, it all works together really well, especially the added coat of Fairy Dust :-)

    1. Thank you so much! :D I must admit that I was pleased that the mutant lizard came out that cute! And the Fairy Dust gave it that extra that was needed. :)

    1. Jeg har købt en del Color Clubs hos både nailsupplies.us og hos transdesign.com. Det er vist samme ejer. Jeg har kun haft problemer med dem en enkelt gang, hvor en af deres lakker var udgået, så de annullerede hele ordren og sendte prompte pengene retur. Så var det bare med at genbestille det, de nu engang havde. :)
      Jeg har godt nok ikke set, at de skulle ha' topcoats fra Color Club, der ligefrem dufter af andet end neglelak. :D

    3. Njaeh, nogen gange gør jeg. Andre gange går jeg lidt amok, og må jo så bare betale hvad SKAT synes, at det skal koste. :/
      Jeg tror på dig - jeg mente bare, at jeg ikke tror, at de har dem på de hjemmesider endnu. ;D
