Lacquester ~ Doomed Deluxe

Lacquester ~ Doomed Deluxe
Purple linear holo with a red/golden shift

Today I’m in the mood for purple, so purple it is. Doomed Deluxe is a beautiful purple linear holo with great shimmer in it.

The formula is really good and I ended up with two coats for full coverage.

So take a look at two coats and no topcoat in the morning sun here:

Doomed Deluxe is also really pretty outside the sunshine. This is taken in my lightbox.

I stamped on it. I used a motif from Moyou London’s stamping plate Holy Shapes Collection-03. I used two stamping polishes for the design: El Corazón’s White and Pink Neon.

This is my mani, including a layer of topcoat, taken in the sun.

These are the three polishes I used.

I really like this purple, I think it’s gorgeous. I think the stamping came out quite nice as well.

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Linear holo with shimmer
Overall impression: Now this is a nice polish, I like everything about it
Buy again: Yes

Ms. Sparkle ~ Come on Eileen

Ms. Sparkle ~ Come on Eileen
Green to purple duochrome with shimmer and colour changing flakies

This is my first Ms. Sparkle polish and it’s a special one too. It was made as a Facebook group custom in January 2017 and there actually weren’t enough polish for all the girls in the group because the maker ran out of supplies. So I was very lucky to grab a bottle.

The polish is sheer and like many of her multichromatic sisters she likes to be worn over underwear. Come on Eileen does build up in three coats. I wear three coats on my pinkie and two coats over black on the rest of my fingers. There’s also a layer of topcoat involved.

This first picture is taken in the sun to show off the pretty shimmer.

Here’s a picture taken in my lightbox. Now you can see the flakies.

The colour shift was way more prominent in the bottle than on my nails, which is a shame. It’s pretty nonetheless.

On this picture you may be able to see a bit of the shift.

Come On Eileen has two sisters, which I also bought. I’m going to get back to those later. The polish was limited edition and is no longer available.

Number of coats: 2 over black or 3 on its own
Drying time: Average
Finish: Duochrome with shimmer and flakies
Overall impression: I like this way more on the pictures than I did when I wore it
Buy again: No

Born Pretty round nail studs with dots

Born Pretty round nail studs with dots

It’s time for another review! Today I’m going to show you some really cool dotted nail studs I received for an honest review from
Born Pretty Store.

They are listed here. They came in a little bag with 30 studs in it and this is what they look like:

I decided to use them with a beautiful holographic polish (also from Born Pretty Store” called Ocean Kingdom. You can find Ocean Kingdom by clicking this link if you’re interested.

This is what the studs look like on the nails, including a layer of topcoat:

Here’s a flash picture as well, I just love the rainbows and the dotted studs really suits the polish in my opinion.

The last picture is taken in ordinary daylight on a cloudy day.

 The verdict:

Easy to work with
Makes a cool edition to a manicure

I think they’re a bit expensive: $2.26 for 30 studs
They come in a flimsy bag that isn’t easy to reseal
