Hello lovelies,

I've finally done another dripping nails, this time with Zoya Lovely polishes (reviewed here). I have done dripping nails back at the beginning of my blog in 2010 and they were just horrible so I won't even link to them :D 

I have used following Zoya shades: Piaf, Gie Gie, Julie, Blu and Neely.

Firstly I painted my nails with two coats of Piaf. Then using large dotting tool I've created the 'drips'. Then I've used black acrylic paint and thin brush to outline the shapes and added white highlight.  All sealed with topcoat.

Hello lovelies,

Hope you're all doing well! We are currently experiencing another very cold wave here in UK so I feel like icicle! But I keep going..slower but going :D Today I will show you two nail polishes from the Born Pretty Store which surprised me a bit so they are worth blogging about.

The nail polishes are in a small square bottle like Max Factor polishes. Each bottle contains 8ml of polish and costs $2.95 before discount (use code LHJ61 for 10% OFF anything). There is 42 shades available, you can check them out and purchase at the Born Pretty Store.

BK #28 - pastel blue creme shade. My expectations were pretty low so I was very surprised that it applied very smoothly and two thicker coats gave me this perfect coverage. The polish also dried quite fast and removal was easy.

BK #33 - pale green creme shade. This one was slightly different story. It also applied easily but the pigmentation was lower and I needed three coats for full coverage. It dries fast and removal is easy. I'd like to mention that it smells quite strongly.
