So it was only natural to pick up a few polishes in Japan, so why not choose some pokemon polishes! A shop called ‘its demo’ seem to have a massive pokemon colab deal which included some super cute stationary, accessories such as keyrings etc, as well as cosmetics for example eye shadow pallets, lip balms and polishes. (Admittedly if I didn’t know it was a colab I would be tempted to think it was some knock-off stuff,  with the pokemon slightly altered so as to not infringe copyright issues.)

I picked up 2 pokemon polishes, which unfortunately don’t seem to have names only numbers, and a grapefruit handcream which smells lovely. I’m not a huge make-up wearer so as cute as the pallets were it would have been a waste of yen.

The first polish I chose to use seems to relate to pikachu as the glitter mix includes lightening bolts and it’s definitely a glitter topper so I created a yellow base for it.

I sponged a few coats of the glitter on first to create a more densely packed look and then one final brushed on coat to help seal in all the glitter. Looks cute right! Its definitely a novelty polish as I’m not sure how often I’ll wear it but for 450yen (about £3) why not huh.

I couldn’t just leave it as a ‘swatch’ so I painted the ‘its demo’ style pikachu. Unfortunately mines is looking a little uncomfortable about something, maybe even in pain… Sorry Pikachu.
