Masura ‘Shooting Stars’

Just a quick one today, this is Masura ‘Shooting Stars’. It is a highly pigmented royal blue jelly with holographic glitter, it easily covered in two coats and certainly packs a punch.

CBL Broadway Baby!

Howdy!

How beautiful is this limited edition polish ‘Broadway Baby!’ from Colours by Llarowe!?!

It is a multi chrome that shifts between royal blue, turquoise and purple.

Now my school uniform at middle school was royal blue and I hated it so much in fact that I haven’t worn that colour for years but this polish has changed my mind – with the colour shifts I found myself admiring it all of the time, I even had to be extra careful when I was driving as the colour would catch my eye when stopping at traffic lights etc and distract me – he he!

Believe me, if you love multi chrome shades, you need this in your life!

My all time favourite Nail Polish

Yes I own literally hundreds of polishes but this is just so beautiful that it hands down beats everything I own.

Tonic Polish – ‘Dragon Tears’

Made with a scattered holographic multitone pigment, the colour shifts through green, blue, purple, red & peach and even looks copper at some angles and also has a spattering of tiny silver holo micro glitter to finish off the look – not too many, just the perfect amount as to not dull the colour shift. The consistency is pretty thin so it flows on nicely and three coats result in a smooth, brushstroke free finish. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m pretty sure that it would look equally stunning over black or a dark colour to create a different look.

If you haven’t come across ‘Tonic’ before I highly recommend that you check them out they have such unusual shades you will fall in love. They haven’t been around all that long – I believe that they started trading last year but it is my belief that they are definitely ones to watch!

6 – Nails grow faster during pregnancy
