(Edit: not the first I ever made, but the first I show here :P)
Ok, it's blue, but it was totally unintentional, I swear.
These are two coats of Essence "Cool And The Gang" and - boh? - one or two coats of my franken (I don't remember :D):
Again, in the sun *________________*
This is the other side of this polish:
Under artificial light ♥
This franken was the result of a broken bottle :D
Together with the other polishes I pictured here, I wanted to show you another Essence auto rip-off: "Caribbean Sea".
On the right, the older version, on the left the newer, do you see something different?
(Essence "Caribbean Sea": left, new version; right, old version)
The new version contains that slightly duochromy metallic pigment Essence seems to own in a container-like quantity, so they use it like sugar in a bakery shop.
Well, after taking some pics, I moved bottles, but the new version suddenly crashed on the floor; since I couldn't keep a blue metallic blot in my kitchen, and given that bottle broke in a way it was impossible to keep it (brush remained screwed in the neck of the bottle), I poured the leftover in a semi-empty Essence clear nailpolish, add some of Specktraflair pigment, few drops of Essence "Cool And The Gang" and this is the result:
What about the formula?
TERRIBLE, I should've used a rolling pin to apply it instead of a brush :D
That's because I used an aged clear nailpolish base, I think, plus the "Caribbean Sea" is pretty dense itself (these Show Your Feet are meant to be one-coat polishes), so adding new pigment makes it even heavier... I tried to dilute it with thinner, but I hadn't any more space in the bottle, lol.
In a few hours, holo pigment settles in the bottom of bottle, it takes a while to re-distribute it, even if I added four steel balls.
I'll add more thinner in the future, now that I've used some for this mani, hope it will get better :D
Have a nice day/night/whatever and thanks for your attention ;¬)
