Good morning all of you! Let's see a show of hands of all those who share the same love for denims! *raises both hands* lol. Okay, about a week ago another gift prize from Tip Top Nails South Africa arrived on my doorstep! And there's a lot of goodies in it - what a sweet surprise! I'd talk more about it in the coming days. This is going to be quite a long post... hahaha!
So in the lovely package that arrived, lays my very first twin polish! Well, more like a 2 in 1 kind of nail polish, named - I Luv Denim!
I'm not sure what are your reactions upon seeing this polish, but mine went something like "ohh soooo denim-ish. Wow, that's a lot of tiny-micro silver glitters. But, I wonder if...." - and I decided to give this a try.
My oh my. I honestly thought I wouldn't like it as much. But after laying them down on my nails, I fell in love! I've never seen any other matte polishes (yeah, this one has a beautiful, one of a kind matte finish) that applies as smoothly as this baby does! And it dries pretty fast! Instant satisfaction! I thought I wouldn't enjoy the silverish glitters in it, how wrong I was! This nail polish has quickly rank as one of my favourites of all time! The matte effect just drives me mad with love for them! They are also very pigmented. While I've used two thin coats for the light blue shade, the darker shade is totally good-to-go at just 1 coat. If you are in a rush and do not have the time to wait for nail polish to dry, may I suggest you give Tip Top Nails South Africa - I luv denim a try :)
I absolutely couldn't resist the thought of attempting a denim inspired manicure as a tribute to its wonderful name! I was inspired by bleached denim I found on etsy. (view it here).
Ta~dah! This how they turned out. Honestly, I would have added some whites in it (although not too sure if that'd ruin it or make it better, have yet to try). But Katy from Nailed It, is holding a nail art competition to celebrate her blog's 1st birthday!
Happy 1st Blog Birthday, Katy!!
The competition is open internationally with part of the regulation is to only use 2 bottles of polish and create a nail art. I thought I'd give it a try and challenge myself to only use two colours instead of 2 bottles. Hehe. Overall, I really love how the nails turn out. Feels good to have ideas that turned out better than what I anticipated :D So, yay to that! ♥
