KIKO Nail Lacquer – Pearly Blue Peacock (530)

Hello,
today I have a swatches of KIKO Nail LacquerPearly Blue Peacock (530) for you.

Kiko 530 Pearly Blue Peacock

As its name suggests this nail colour looks like iridescent peacock feathers. The base is dark blue with loads of shimmer. Depending on the light it changes colour from dark blue to emerald green with a hint of rich violet or golden brown. Unfortunately my camera didn’t quite capture this iridescence.

The formula of this polish is great and the the application was smooth. These photos are 3 coats of polish and taken after two days of wear.

Gelish Trends – Lots of Dots

Hello,
today I have swatches of Lots of Dots from Gelish Trends collection. Lots of Dots was released in October 2013, so it is available for a while now.

Lots of Dots is a gel polish which can be worn over another gel polish colour or as a stand-alone product applied over a gel base coat. It contains different colors of tiny little dots in a clear base. What differs it from most of toppers is that it does not glitter.

You can see on the photos how loaded with dots it is. Don’t forget to give it a good shake before the application.

Below are swatches of Lots of Dots over white tips.

You can see that one coat already gives pretty nice effect. I applied it using dabbing technique, so it took a bit longer, but application was easy and smooth. Gel was self leveling and didn’t pool at the cuticles, so moving the dots around with the brush was easy.

Here is my mani I am wearing right now. I applied one coat of Lots of Dots over three coats of IBD Just Gel Polish – Seashell Pink. I finished my manicure with one coat of gel top coat which was enough to seal the dots and get smooth nail surface without the bumps.
I think this gel polish is pretty great because you can overlay with it many different gel polish colours and get new looks.

Blue nails with pink and green dots

Hello,

Today I have for you very simple and fast nail design.
Recently I bought three nail polishes which are very good for spring and summer. I wanted to see how these colours look together.

Maybelline Color Show

So here are the nails

Blue Nail Design

Base colour is Maybelline Cool Blue. Green dots are made with Maybelline Pow Green, pink ones with Maybelline Pink Boom. For the dots I used a dotting tool.

Have a nice weekend!

Maybelline – Color Show – Cool Blue

Hello,
Today I have for you swatches of MaybellineColor ShowCool Blue (651).
I am a huge fan of blue nail polishes so when I saw this one I knew that it must be mine.

Maybelline Color Show Cool Blue 651

When I painted my nails with Cool Blue I fell in love with this shade. It has creme finish without any glitter or shimmer. Just pure blue!

Maybelline Color Show Cool Blue Nail Polish

The formula of Cool Blue is similar to the two other polishes I have from this collection (Pow Green and Pink Boom). It is a bit too thick, but application is not bad. The difference is that you need only two coats to get beautiful, even coverage. Actually if you are very careful when painting (and lucky) then one coat is enough.
On the photos my nails are covered with three coats of Cool Blue. I wanted to check if there is any difference between two and three coats. I don’t see any.

This polish has a strong colour and a creme finish.

I must say that I cannot wear this kind of pink polishes because I have the feeling that everybody are staring at me (but tons of glitter and huge rhinestones on my nails are fine).

Maybelline Color Show Pink Boom Nail Polish

On the photos my nails are covered with three coats of Pink Boom. Two are not enough to get a good coverage. The consistency of Pink Boom is a little bit thick, but application was not bad.

Below you can see the picture of Pink Boom in cold artificial light.

Overal it is a good colour for the summer, but only if you love this kind of flashy pinks.
