Hello lovelies,

 

I'm sure you've seen swatches of the China Glaze Sea Goddess collection already but you haven't seen mine ;) Sea Goddess collection introduces six textured glitter shades in mostly light spring colours. I've received three to review so here they are...

 

China Glaze Sea Goddess collection - Review and swatches of 3 shades

 


Sand Dolla Make You Holla - milky base colour with pinking undertone packed with multi-coloured glitter. The polish has gritty textured finish. The formula was a bit sheer but I managed to make it work in two thicker coats. It applied ok and dried rather average.

Shell We Dance - raspberry cream base with pink and silvery glitter and textured finish. I like this shade much more partly because it's better pigmented and a bit more sparkly. It applied well but it took its time to dry/harden.

Teal The Tide Turns - mint green textured base with green glitter. For some reason the base reminds me of frog eggs I used to fish out when I was kid..yuck! Anyways - I've applied two coats which were opaque enough. The polish went on well but dried rather average as the other ones.

The last pictures show the polish with a coat of topcoat but it wasn't enough. It would take two coats of topcoat to get smooth finish. The removal hard as with any other glitter polish so I'd recommend the foil method of peel off base coat.


I must say I'm not that keen on this collection as I prefer different kind of texture, finer and sand-like. I like these polishes much more with top coat.

 

China Glaze polishes are available at your regular stores and e-shops if you live in US. In UK they are sold at Sally's, The Nail & Beauty Link etc.

Hello lovelies,

 

I've quite enjoyed doing some previous manicures inspired by fashion so I've happily accepted a store credit from BANK Fashion to purchase some clothes and do inspired post! Today I will show you studded manicure to match a Lipsy studded jumper I got. This type of manicure has been done before many times but it was the perfect match for this jumper.

 

First of all I had to find nail polish closest to the colour of the jumper...my choice was OPI Incognito In Sausalito which is pretty close. Then I added gold studs from Born Pretty Store (save with LUHH10 discount code).

What do you think of this studded look? I've never really done whole nail studded manicure before and I really liked it! I don't think I would be able to keep myself from picking on the studs though :D 

 

I'm really glad I got the offer because the jumper is just so cute on. I'm not fashion blogger so no pics of me in it but I tell you it is super cool and you can see it in the first pic ;) Have you ever heard of or shopped at BANK Fashion?

 

Love, Lucie x
