Showing posts with label tip top

Hello lovelies,

After a very long time I started to participate in a challenge together with some other lovely bloggers. The challenge is called Deadly Sins Challenge and was put together by Alice from One Nail To Rule Them All and Nail Wish. I will do my best to do all the challenges (two per week) but it might happen that I'll do just one in given week. Here's the whole challenge:

So what did I want to do so badly for some time? I wanted to try drawing on nails using Sharpie pen. Well it was a fail :D I think I've chosen the wrong type of Sharpie pen so it didn't give opaque colour. I actually think I can produce better results with a brush and acrylic paint! Never mind, at least I've tried :)

I've used Tip Top Oh La La as a base colour (reviewed here).

Have any of you tried a different Sharpie or any other pen? Which one do you recommend? I have normal gel pens too but the ink pools and slips on the nail polish :-/

Hello lovelies,

Today for the first time, I'm reviewing South African polish! Have you ever heard of Tip Top brand? No? Well here's your chance to find out more.

About company: "Founded in 1981, Tip Top was widely regarded as a pioneer within the professional beauty industry, having earned a reputation for creating innovative, trendsetting products and treatments upon which the consumer could rely for excellent results.

Tip Top is renowned for its exceptionally safe products – all nail enamels are vegan, Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP (Dibuthyl Phthalate) and Camphor FREE – and made in South Africa with the best raw materials. Naturally, our made in South Africa products are not tested on animals. "

Oh La La - medium purple creme with silver and magenta particles. This is such a pretty and unusual purple, I don't have any dupe in my collection. The formula of the polish is good - it applied very well and I'm wearing two regular coats which were enough for a full coverage. It dried reasonably fast as well and removal was easy. Nice polish :)

I will show you more from Tip Top brand and you should really have your eyes peeled! Right now Tip Top brand is sold in South Africa only but they are looking at the possibility to go international.

What do you think of this polish? Something you would seek out if it would be available in your country or with international shipping?
