I went out last Saturday night with my friend I went to University with and her friends for a meal. I've not been out "out" for quite a while and couldn't work out what I wanted to wear etc (the usual...)
I had to pop into Boots to pick up some vitamins and of course, couldn't help but take a peek at the make up section! I spotted this...
It was also the only bottle left, so I couldn't leave it on its own! ;) I also bought a bottle of a black colour "nightshade" to go underneath the silver and a bottle of a turquoise blue colour "seabreeze" also (which I will add pictures of at a later date!)
The two plain colours were £2.99 each and the top coat was £3.99. They were on offer at 3 for 2, so it worked out quite reasonable! :) Here is a picture of the finished product! Sorry for the poor quality of the photo, I used my phone to take it, and it's pretty rubbish!! :(
I used the black shade to paint a base coat. I did not really rate the quality of the black nail varnish, it was a bit wishy washy and you had to put quite a few coats on, which didn't look even. But, obviously this wasn't such a great problem as it was going to be partially covered! I wouldn't however use the polish on its own.
The crackle top coat was amazing and so simple to use! I was a little dubious as to how it would turn out and whether I would have to do anything special to it. I literally painted it on and voila!
I did put a coat of clear nail varnish over the top and I think this helped it stay on for a bit longer. It did last quite a while and if I did get a little chip, it wasn't as noticeable because of the effect.
I had so many comments about them on my night out! My friend who I was out with loved them (I've actually picked her up a bottle too!) and her friends were all amazed by them and convinced I'd been and had them done professionally! I was being asked who did them/where can they get them done! I even had a positive comment from my brother, along the lines of "Woah! Your nails! They look awesome!" hehe.
I loved the nails so much but unfortunately I'm not allowed to wear nail varnish at work so had to take it off, but will definitely be wearing it again soon!!
