Revlon - Royal + Shaka - n. 800 Glossy Blue

| | Comments: (8)

Hi : >
I love blue (what a news), so some time ago I tried this combo...

I had something in mind, but you'll see it later.

"Royal", you all know it, blue and jelly... But I decided to add on top of it another "blue and jelly" gem, Shaka n. 800 "Glossy Blue".

This particular nailpolish has a lovely shimmer, very very fine, just like a fine blue diamond dust, which gives it depth and a really nice finish.
I hope pictures are showing this effect, in real life nails look like under a layer of a precious glass : >

Best performance? In the sun <3

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

Latest buyings :>

... I mean, latest from June and July.

Pupa n. 032, bought when Pupa put holos and others on sale, and Layla "Flash Black", brought to me (at a lower price) by Stregalice <3

H&M "Fantasy Ocean", still don't know if it's the tenth teal-with-gold-shimmer I own...

Next, the new Shakas: together with the holos, Shaka released some "collections": the only one I could recognize is the one dedicated to planets, but honestly I don't know the others - and I repeat, Shaka's site is awful.

Shaka n. 660 "Ternder" (spelling mistake, I suppose :D), n. 670 "Deep Passion" (look!), n. 775 "Forever Green", n. 860 "Universe" (the one in the "planets" collection).

These colours are to die for, so I decided to make some cap-swatches:

N. 860 "Universe" has a dark teal base with electric blue shimmer *_*
N. 660 "Ternder" has a beautiful and glowing pink accent in a lavender base; a little watery, though.

Next, the masterpiece, in my humble opinion:

N. 670 "Deep Passion" has a blue base and DEEP red shimmer, I BET this will be STUNNING once on my nails <3 <3 <3

N. 775 "Forever Green" looks teal in the bottle and grass green on cap, but I've discovered it's a blued green jelly: here I put just one coat (quite saturated!), I think two coats will be enough and more similar to bottle's colour, even if not so dark.

Next, thanks to a blogger whose name I can't recall now, I bought the polish on the left straight after I read her post on Rimmel's "Night Before" :D

Since that I already own "Blue Me Away", I decided for a small comparison:

"Night Before" is darker and less blue, while "Blue Me Away" is absolutely blue °_°

Shimmer (which is lightly duochrome, by the way) is the very same, I think, only inserted in a different jellish base.

Last, random picture :D
Some lovely italian girls send me "Grumpy" from the Snow White Essence LE, you all know how much I love electric blues <3

And I picked a couple of Basic Beauty for me, there were an offer on all the makeup items...

N. 76, the purple one, is VERY dark, very vampy.
N. 67PE, is a magenta PURE jelly (picture show it lighter). Yes, it's the third pink jelly from BB I own, I'll do a comparison in the future when I'll come back home.
BB, why don't you make more colours in jelly formula? :°°°

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

NYC - n. 264 Lincoln Square Lavender

Hi all!
After a little idle phase, here I am with a softer-than-usual colour :>

I have some pinks in my stash, but they're mainly cool pinks, the ones with that blue touch, or muted, dusty...
This is called "Lincoln Square Lavender", but as you can se it's not a lavender shade, it's just a pink with a hint of purple:

Every now and then I like to wear them, and I'm happy I've found this beautiful shade.
I think it looks good on me :>

Honestly I can't remember how many coats I used, I'd say two with some touch-ups? Three? Anyway, easy application, no problems.

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