What used to be Jade ~ Aurora



What used to be Jade ~ Aurora
Now purple linear holo

Do you remember Aurora that I showed you a short while ago?
It looks like this:


I was super disappointed in this polish because it didn’t look anything like the swatch pictures I had seen online. I don’t like being disappointed over my pretties, so I decided to spice it up a bit.

I poured some of it over into a smaller bottle. Then I added red, pink and purple pigments until I liked the colour. A good shake, rattle and roll, and then the polish was ready to apply.

This is what it ended up looking like. This is two coats and a layer of topcoat:


Isn’t it way prettier than the original?


The only downside is that the brush in the little bottle was really wonky and difficult to work with so I had it all over the place, grr. But that’s fortunately a problem that’s easy to solve.

Have you ever made good polishes better this way?
