I hope you're having a great day. Mine's gone pretty well so far, I haven't been up to much, mostly painting my nails and drinking tea, which suits me fine! I do have some housework to be getting on with, which is why I'm sitting here blogging haha.
Today I bring you the third installment of my Pretty Jelly reviews. I bought 4, and have already reviewed Bullet Rouge HERE and Grape Escape HERE
This one's called Diamond S-teal-er, which you would think makes it teal. To my eyes it's more like an icy mid-blue, not really enough green tone in it (in my opinion) for teal, but that doesn't make it any less pretty. And of course it's holographic anyway so who cares!
The holo is there, but it doesn't jump off the page with this one, although of course because I want to swatch a holo, it's grey and drizzly today, so that doesn't help. Here's how it looks:
I still have a bit of glitter left in my cuticles from wearing Nails Inc's fine sprinkles, but oh well.
This is two coats, with just regular basecoat and no topcoat. The formula on this one seemed a tad more gloopy than on the others I've tried. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't too awkward, but it didn't quite seem to glide the same. Dry time seemed a bit slower too, I wonder if I need to thin it a little bit? I think the lump on my middle finger is a bit of leftover glitter, I obviously wasn't very rigorous with my last removal! It had the same lovely high end finish as the others I've tried.
Here's a pic under the kitchen light to show the lovely holo:
I told you it was there! Lovely holo rainbow.
I already knew when I started painting my nails what nail art I was going to do on this, as I woke up with it in my head (sad I know). As Spring is on its way, I thought I would cheer it along with some flowers.
Daisies are a double win, because they're one of my favourite flowers, and also they're mega easy to do with a dotting tool. All you need to do is start from the outside of a petal and drag to the centre, repeat four or five times, then do a dot in the middle. If you can make a dot, you can do these flowers.
So here's what I ended up with:
I used OPI Alpine Snow for the petals and Collection 2000 Hot Looks in Lemon Soda for the centres. I didn't topcoat it because I didn't want to kill the holo. I took two pics I couldn't decide between, so I'm showing them both to you.:
And here's what it looks like with its holo kick:
So pretty! And because I've been a bit lax at remembering to do it lately, here's what the brush looks like:
You can buy the Pretty Jelly polishes from the Etsy shop HERE and I paid $10, which equates to around £6.50. Obviously alot of shipping on the top of that though because it came all the way from America.
The polishes are 3-free and cruelty free so happy days.
Unfortunately for me there are now some new, different, gorgeous, holo's in her shop, and I want them all!
What do you think?
Until next time...
