Alright so I haven't posted any of it yet but I am just addicted to outlining and doing geometric designs on my nails lately! I've decided to actually update this blog once or twice a week while I am abroad that way I can show off these designs I've been playing around with and well, maybe I can talk about any polish I spot in Ireland, England and Paris? Oh I didn't think I mentioned it before - but that's where I am going and I'll be flying in just two days, ahhhhh! So much to do! But it's Tuesday so let's chill out and celebrate Cheap Polish Tuesday.
This one is a bit "old" in the fast changing polish world but this is Essence Dive With Me To The Island from the 'Ticket to Paradise' capsule collection. It's one of those 'Tiffany blue' type of shades and is meant to be a jelly (or as they say a "semi-transparent nail polish"!) as the other shades in the collection. The formula was good, my second coat applied a bit patchy and I was worried but it was self-levelling and evened out. Only needed two coats after all! Here's my swatch in two coats, with no top coat:
And for funsies, I finally took out Rainbow Honey Bubble Beam to add a bit of shimmer over top. Not the best colour to showcase Bubble Beam in all her blue shimmery glory, but it can be subtle too!:
And here it is matted with Cheap Polish Tuesday's favourite cheap matte top coat from GOSH. There's really no taming that shimmer at all:
Overall, I still love this polish - it had a nice natural shiny finish; sure it's not unique but it had a great formula. Another winner, another great "bang for your buck" in Cheap Polish Tuesday.
So now that I am bringing a checked baggage, I think I might bring my nail strengthener and a couple of polishes, hehe. Is this absurd? I hope not. What do you think of these Tiffany blue polishes? Have you had enough of them? I certainly haven't!
