Good Evening! Somehow I've not been feeling very inspired lately or there's too many I want to do that I ended up clueless on which nail art to do. Hahaha! Classic, eh? Well, no fear! When in doubt, swatches shall take over! Fortunately, I have tons of nail polish still awaiting me to swatch them for you. :P
So this is Peripera Rose OR406, which is actually rose scented nail polish. It's a yellow creme polish which leans towards the orange side. You would have seen me used this polish a few times before in my nail arts, but I have been procrastinating on the swatch. Hahaha! I bought this at Watsons. This collection priced at MYR 15.90 each.
Formula wise, it's pretty opaque. On my nails are two coats each. As for application, it was rather streaky on first coat, but definitely obtained decent coverage on second. Somehow, these doesn't dry glossy. It's not exactly what I'd call matte finish either. I think it dries a wax finish? Dry time - not too long. The scent however, could be strong or mild or acceptable depending on individual. For me, it's alright.
Well, all I can say is this is really a beautiful orange-y yellow (or sunny yellow) to get. I love this bright yellow shade which feels like the right kind of yellow to have in my collection. Best of all, opaque in just two coats! Great to wear alone and excellent for nail arts! :)
Here's another goodie I got from The Face Shop. I bought it together with 02 Vanilla Sugar Yogurt. However, this one is priced slightly more expensive, MYR 16.90. Which, I sort of don't mind because I've been wanting a black and white glitter topper for soooooo loooongggggggg :)
Macro shot of the glitter. You can see that it's matte mix of glitters in all sorts of shapes. From bars to hexagons to squares in various sizes. (okay, just the squares. the bars are mostly just 1 size and there's a hint of diamond shapes in there too).
I was going to swatch it over black or white polish, but I figured it would be redundant as doing so will just eat up either of the glitter colours. Since the whole point of swatching is to show you just how gorgeous/wonderful this polish is I've decided to swatch them over Peripera Rose OR406, which compliments this polish very well.
Sad to say, that the glitters in The Face Shop CMX324 Glam Stud is rather sparse. Using the same technique, on my nails are all two coats of coverage except for the thumb, which took three coats instead (well, it's wider...hahaha!). But still turned out rather alright, eh? :)
Contributing to my recent obsession with meshes and squares, here's a simple nail art to go with this combo. Hahaha, when I was done with them, they kinda reminded me of Barbecued Corns. Usually at this point, I'd share how hungry I am but I'm not. Cause I don't eat corns ;P Haha!!
Heh, I'm really looking forward to more new lines introduced by The Face Shop. They did a good job with these recent ones! Till the next post! :)
