Acid Trip

Buongiorno tutti!

Just a quickie to show you the 2 new gel polish shades I bought from eBay (which I mention in a previous post.) I’ll let the picture do the talking first:


Um, hiyaaaaaaaaa how fit are these acid brights?! PERFECT for Summer… Ok Summer’s nearly over but I’m going to Ibiza soon so… yeah. I’m yet to try the green so I’ll be rocking it over on the White Isle fo’ sho’.

Consistency wise the orange was a bit less opaque than some other polishes and I applied it quite thinly, which I think contributed to it having a few small chips within a week. Most blogs I’ve read or YouTube vids I’ve watched recommend you apply v. thin coats to stop it chipping but I think this may be a weaker formula than the name brands and would benefit from having one of the coloured coats applied thicker. I had a few chips after a week but the thing is they are sooooooo cheap and have way more colour options than I’ve ever seen before so I don’t really mind that they don’t last as long as my actual branded Gelish colour (which has been known to last 3 weeks, boom!) I think it may just be a case of adjusting my technique slightly to find how to make it last as long as poss. But hey, a whole week without chips is still gut enough for me! Plus a massive saving of around £30 by DIY-ing? Not too shabby at all my friend.

Anyhoo, the day after I was on the Overground to Hackney and realised my nails matched the train! So I made this beautiful work of art with my new favourite app, Line Camera…


That’s ‘so cute’ for those of you who don’t watch Happy Endings (what are you doing with your life? Go watch it NOW!)
