So for this super simple design I used some ‘Chameleon Stones‘ from BornPrettyStore. I chose the blue ones as I liked their iridescent quality, the pictures don’t do them justice but they showed gold, green and purple too. I paired them up with a Primark polish called ‘Meteorite’ which I previously swatched here. Since then I’ve realised that even with top coat the polish chips rather quickly but for £1.50…
So this is the final polish that I purchased from Primark. It’s called ‘interstellar’ and behaved much like the others; smooth application, very good coverage, not overly smelly.
I wore this design to work and unfortunately it chipped really badly. Now if you take in to consideration that I’m in a swimming pool for 2 and a half hours, there can sometimes be some lifting or peeling, but I was a little bit disappointed by just how much came off. Never the less, the polish only cost £1.50 so….
P.S why the fish? Well I’m off fishing tomorrow – fingers crossed for a successful catch!
So today’s post does not contain any nail art. Here’s the two excuses as to why; firstly I’ve been very busy with general life, and secondly I’ve been working on designs for an up-coming stamping plate review meaning I’ve nothing else to post about.
Out of the three Primark polishes I bought last month, I’ve already used ‘Supernova’ and decided to use ‘Meteorite’ next. It’s quite a silvery, blue and not very metallic so it was a bit of a disappointment in that sense. But it did have amazing coverage, has a very smooth formula and didn’t smell horrendous. For £1.50 I’d say it was worth it!
So I’ve finally broken my ‘no buy January/February’ by purchasing 3 polishes from Primark. They were so cheap at £1.50 each, really only equating to the price 1 ‘good’ polish and we are now in to May almost June so I think I’ve done pretty darn well. I’ve enjoyed not buying, I feel like I’ve broken the habit (or addiction, whatever you’d like to call it) and it feels good! However, I am feeling a slight relapse coming on as I’m getting a little bit bored of my current supplies – my fingers are twitching at the keyboard, eager to start scrolling through BPS again. Maybe that’s why I ended up buying some new polishes actually!
Anyway, the first polish I tried was ‘Supernova’ which is a metallic pink pink according to the bottle, however on the nail it comes out a sort of lilac pink. It applied wonderfully smooth, it didn’t steak quite as badly as Models Own metallics can, and it didn’t smell horrible either. (Please excuse the two sort of scuff marks, I managed to bump my nails whilst they were still drying)
That was way to boring to leave the house with so I added a quick splash of glitter! In reality, I think the pink glitter helps to lift the polish a bit more in to the pink side and out of the purple side of the spectrum.
So I didn’t actually own a ‘Coral’ coloured polish, therefore I was just going to miss that days challenge. But! I found one for £1 in Primark, so obviously purchased it. It’s actually quite nice: thick but applied a bit streaky, dried semi-matte looking and definitely needed two coats but for one singular pound – I’d pay that any day. These are top-coatless, as I managed to smudge the black (too keen) whilst applying it and it looked nasty.
