NailNation 3000 ~ Awesome Sauce



Happy New Year, sweet readers! 

2014 was an awesome year for me when it comes to blogging. I got a lot of new friends and I appreciate each and every one of them. Thank you, you know who you are ♥

Let's start 2015 with a polish with an awesome name: 
 

NailNation 3000 ~ Awesome Sauce
Bright orange to coral linear holo

Today I’ve tried a new technique: Dry brush. It’s not new as such as I’ve seen it on many blogs, but it’s new to me since I’ve never tried it myself before.

Let me show you my final mani first:



It reminds me of an abstract painting. The base colour is NailNation 3000’s Awesome Sauce, and I made the brush strokes with NailNation 3000’s “Marthe” and Pahlish’s “Blood of the Mountain”.


Awesome Sauce is a colour that I’m torn about. It’s orange, which I’ve come to like recently, but it has also got a coral touch, and coral is so not my colour. But I really like the neon-ness of this polish. Take a look at two easy and fast drying coats here:



Here’s what it looks like in low lights.


I dig this polish despite the coral touch. When I wore this it actually made me think of what grandma polish would look like the day she decided that her nails would be neon, haha! Neon grandma-polish :D

Here are the three pretties:



Have you tried the dry brush technique? If yes, did you like the result?


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Fast
Finish: Linear holo
Overall impression: Unique colour, great quality, nice rainbows
Buy again: Yes

  4. I think corals are really pretty but I think they look horrible on me :( I really like dry brushing as well. I think it's a technique that also looks great up close and at a distance.

    1. Corals have to be pretty special to look okay on me, but I like this one :)

  5. Seriously, neon grandma polish bwahaha! I'm a bit torn on the coral-orange but I love the dry brush technique. It reminds me of a Jackson Pollack painting. Very cool.
