{December 17, 2012}   Nails Of The Week #14

 Aplogies for the rushed post, with xmas coming so quickly things have been so busy. I have updated my swatch page for anyone who is interested. I have been drawn to Summery colours this week. Its freezing here and looking at a bit of colour cheers me up a little. My nails seem to be taking forever to grow back.

Rimmel 60 Seconds

Rimmel 60 Seconds, Funtime Fuscia and Sunrise, both are lovely to work with, great formula and fast drying.

Tuesday, Rimmel Lasting Finish, Double Esspresso.

Tuesday, Rimmel Lasting Finish, Double Esspresso. I cant say anything about this polish, the formula is good, drying time is good, everything is good so I dont know why I feel blegh about this one.  Its just,,,,, blegh.

Wednesday

Wednesday, Technic Tawny Port. Recieved in my Beauty Box subscription, one of the worst polishes I have ever used, which is a shame as Technic are usually good polishes. The chipping started within a few mins of drying and massive chunks has chipped off by morning. I was planning on regifting this but I’m not that mean, its in the bin.

Thursday - Another hit from the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure range.

Thursday – Sally Hansen, Casting Call. Another hit from the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure range, purchased in Poundland. I went back for more shades and these are selling really quickly. Streaky on the first coat but it evened itself out on the 2nd (and last) coat.  Big brush which I love.

Friday - Rimmel Lasting Finish, All Spice. I only paid 50p for this and for that price it performed well, I need four coats as its quite sheer, which meant it took longer to dry, but considering the amounts of coats a ten min wait is pretty reasonable I think. I love the shade but I dont think it suits me, maybe with a tan it would be better?

Saturday-Sally Hansen Extreme Wear, Emerald City. Watery formula and a skinny brush made this tricky to apply, I used three coats in total as its not as opaque as it looks. Chipped the next day, same as the others I've tried from the Extreme Wear range.

Sunday. I've not used pink in a while and have been unlucky with every attempt at using Essie's Mod Squad. I always smudge it, so I decided to give it another go, it turned out ok, I aded two coats of Calvin Kliens Hallucinate for sparkles. Hate those tiny square calvin Klien lids, you need to hold it at an angle in order for the brush to be flat on your nails.
