Hello lovelies,

 

Today I'm trying out F.U.N Lacquer polishes for the first time. F.U.N Lacquer is an indie brand from Singapore and I was lucky enough to be sent the Princess collection consisting of 11 holographic shades. Each polish is named after a Disney princess character. I'm going to show you five shades in this first part of the review:

Most of them are really beautiful and I'm sorry not to show them in the sun. British weather hasn't been nice and sunny for a long time. All polishes have good strong holo and they are truly beautiful in the direct sunlight.

 

Snow White - light grey holographic polish. I don't actually have any other grey holo in my stash so this one is really cool. I needed two thicker coats for good coverage.

Belle - yellow gold holographic polish. Very pretty and warm gold shade with strong holo effect. The shade is leaning towrds brown undertones so it's not a bright gold but rather a nice Autumn colour. I'm wearing two thicker coats.

Mulan - beige holographic polish. If you're looking for an elegant and subtle holo shade, this might be your pick. The shade doesn't excite me very much but if I would need an office friendly polish, this one would be a good choice. It is slightly sheerer so I needed two thick coat but three thin ones would do too.

Pocahontas - cool-toned brown holographic polish. It's that kind of rustic walnut brown, very nice colour.

Merida - red-based brown holographic polish. I think this brown suits me the best as it's nice and warm shade. The holographic effect is strong and the pigmentation is good as well.

All polishes have the same formula which was easy to apply and the pigmentation was generally good too. All I needed were two thicker coats to get nice and opaque finish. Another thing I look at is how the polish dries - they dried quite fast and smooth but I still needed a layer of topcoat to get completely smooth and glossy finish.

 

This was the part of the collection consisting of neutral and brown tones. The next part will show the rest of the collection full of bright holos!

 

If you'd like to get your hands on the F.U.N Lacquer Princess Collection, hurry up because it is available till stock lasts and will be discontinued. You can purchase it at F.U.N Lacquer store, each full size bottle holds 16.7 ml of nail polish and is sold for $13. Mini sizes (7ml) are available too for $7.50.

Hello lovelies,

 

today I'm testing nail foils from Tmart e-shop I got for review. I love to play with nail foils and I'm always after new patterns and colours. Once I figured out how to work with nail foils it meant endless possibilities and combinations...only if I'd had more time on my hands.

 

I have decided to test out a plain gold foil that can add a super effect to almost any colour. In this case I've chosen dark brown Zoya Louise as a base colour and gold foil from the Tmart 12-colour nail foil set. I wanted to achieve kind of a ragged look, not just smooth foil so I've used the Best Glue Ever which is thicker than regular nail foil glue. The thick glue causes uneven glue finish when applied with a small brush.

So basically what I've done is I've stamped the pattern with black nail polish so it would be visible but not intrusive. Then I applied foil glue to the black pattern and once it dried I stamped the foil on nail. The foil worked very well as did the other colours so I can only recommend it. These are all the nail foils I got in the set but apparently the colours may vary:

The set of 12 foils cost £6.35 so that works out at 53p per one...bargain if you ask me! There is free shipping so no extra cost there either. Each comes in a plastic container protecting the foil. You can check them out and purchase the '12 Colors Star Paper Professional Nail Sticker' set here. It's a strange product name as these are not really stickers and they are not a paper :)

 

Do you use nail foils? Leave me a link to your manicure and I'll be sure to visit your blog and check it out!

 

Have a lovely day
