Basic Bauty - n. 67 + Essence - Glisten up!

| |

Here's my choice of this week: first of all, sorry for the poor quality of pics, I had to take these early in the morning because I was leaving for Paris, and then there was just bad weather and rain, so this is the best I can offer you.

Another beauty from Basic Beauty!
A deep blue with light blue shimmer; in the bottle you can even see the purple tinge of the jelly base, in fact this isn't completely a creme, but more a dense pigmented jelly with shimmer well distributed in it.
Formula is easy to work with, but you have to be a little careful when applying this, as you can leave bald areas while putting the second coat; in pics, it looks like I have those, but I assure you it's evenly layered, they're just the reflections of light in my bathroom - I was standing in front of the mirror.

Two coats and it's done; it dries fast - at least, for me - and it's really a jeweled shade, I love colours like these :>
But I decided to add something even more "precious" on top - hey, Paris deserves LOTS of sparkles :D - , so I layered one coat of Glisten Up! by Essence.

Nihrida was right! It's really really beautiful over dark blues, not too strong, but still visible, like encrusted pieces of shell on your nails...

Unfortunately, I didn't catch its real effect, but I guess I'll retry this combo, in the sunshine is simply amazing .

Every bottle is 10 ml for a price of € 3,99.
I'm happy to inform you, italian ladies (is there anyone out there?), that Basic Beauty is having an offer on polishes, a classic 3X2 that we all always appreciate, so today I'm going to get the other shades I liked :>
: just discovered that there's no running offer, at least in the shop where I usually buy Basic Beauty polishes. Girl told me it's a special and random (lol wut) promotion that's not valid in all Limoni shops, and - my thoughts - Lord only knows where it's applied. She told me it's not even necessary applied on polishes, it could be on other makeup items too...
Website doesn't mention anything useful, but banner exixts:

and it says it's applied on ALL Limoni shops and Basic Beauty Store, from 16 september to 17 october.
Ask your local Limoni, if they're running this offer, probably they're exposing some sort of advert on display window.

EDIT about wear: after four days of intense traveling, polish has lost its shininess, but I just have massive tipwear - and a little broken angle on my middle finger, oh well :^/

Have a nice day/night/whatever and thanks for your attention ;¬)
