Beauty Big Bang ~ Chameleon #004


Beauty Big Bang ~ Chameleon #004
Green to purple-ish duochrome shimmer

I have said it before but I’ll be happy to say it again: There are five polishes in this collection of colour shifters and I bought all five of them. There’ll be a list to all of them by the end of each post – I’ll put the links up as I publish the blog posts.

The formula of this second one is more sheer than the first sister I tried. I wasn’t quite sure how many coats I would need when I saw what it looked like after the first layer. But fortunately it builds up in two layers, phew! The drying time is good. The polish dries up a bit brush stroke-y, but I don’t mind that at all.

I made three dots by the base of each nail with Picture Polish’s “Tease”.

Here’s the whole thing including a layer of topcoat. The photo is taken in daylight.

And here it is in the lightbox. The colour shift isn’t very prominent in this one – it just looks green most of the time. Fortunately it’s a nice green :D

This is #00 on its own, no topcoat yet. Isn’t that a nice green?

I tried to get more of the shift to show off in the lightbox. You can see the purple around the edges of the nails.

Here are the two polishes I used today. I think Tease is my favourite Picture Polish :)

#003 Purple to blue
#004 Green to purple

Overall impression: Good polish, a bit sheer on the first coat though, colour shift not very prominent
Buy again: I probably would

Beauty Big Bang ~ Chameleon #005
Brown to golden duochrome shimmer

There are five polishes in this collection of colour shifters and I bought all five of them. There’ll be a list to all of them by the end of each post – I’ll put the links up as I publish the blog posts.

The formula of this first one is good and it covers really well. I used two easy coats for full opacity. The drying time is good too. The polish dries up a bit brush stroke-y, but I honestly don’t mind that.

I put on some star stickers to make it look really pretty.

Here’s the whole thing including a layer of topcoat. The photo is taken in daylight.

This is #005 on its own, no topcoat yet. It’s not quite my colours but I really like this shift a lot.

Buy again: Only as a part of a set

CND Creative Play ~ Dazzleberry

CND Creative Play ~ Dazzleberry
Pink jelly with microglitter

Today’s polish is a topper. It might actually work on its own, but I guess it may require 4+ coats to cover.

I used it over a pink shimmer polish from Kiko, number 019.

I put on a few floral stickers before I sealed it all up with topcoat.

This is my final manicure photographed in daylight, no sun.

It’s a really pretty topper.
