What polish would you wear under this flakie top coat? New post and more photos on http://dowantmakeup.blogspot.com
Rimmel English Rose • Essie Pink Diamond • Konad image plate m57
The real colour of English Rose is somewhere between the two pictures.. it’s definitely not a brick red: it’s more of a berry and much cooler, but not as bright as the flash picture. Pink Diamond is a pearly light pink, so it ends up looking a bit like a subtle nude on top of English Rose. I got a lot of compliments on it ^o^
I tried a gradient nail look with Revlon Mad About Mango, Essie Flirt, and Rimmel English Rose. The result is waaaay brighter than I expected but I kind of like it and it reminded me of a sunset. I think I picked shades that were too close to each other, because the gradient effect is really subtle unless under bright light. Even under flash it’s hard to see Flirt and English Rose as two separate colours.
I took a million pictures of this and I’m still (slowly) sorting through them so I may spam a few more pictures in later posts haha :>
Essie St. Lucia Lilac • white Konad Special Polish • Konad image plate M57
This isn’t the prettiest set of nails but I thought I should document this ~special moment~ in my makeup journey, haha. The trickiest part of Konading for me is not the nail stamping itself but applying the top coat afterwards. You need a really light touch to avoid smudging the design (see: rightmost finger) while still making sure it goes on smoothly.
