Allo polish Pals! Goooood morning to you all! Or afternoon.. or evening, depending on where you are and when you are reading this. I hope you had a fantastic weekend? I had a fairly quiet one again but we did go out for dinner on Saturday evening. It was ok - but when you are eating the parts of steak you can eat and complimenting the salad leaves above everything else that's kinda saying something!
Today I have a double whammy, two product reviews in one post. These items came from BeautyBigBang and they are Dried Flower Nail Art Decoration and Silver Nail Dust Nail Glitter Powder - item no. . I decided to pair these with something a little more subtle..
Lets begin with the powder. My first thoughts when I saw this was.. why.. why is it in a baggie? *Tears* T.T The powder is very pretty and reminds me of winter, its a soft white, silver glitter powder and the bag contains approximately 10ml of product. That's quite a good amount and I think that will cover quite a few uses however.. Back to the bag.. This is not an ideal packaging solution for something so fine and messy, I would have had higher marks for this had it of been in a pot for easy, clean storage. It does have one of those seal lines but I would have preferred a pot.
That said, I do really like this nail glitter and decided to wear it on top of my top coat for a more textured effect.
On to the colourful dried flower wheel. These cuties come in 12 different colours and there are approximately three of each. With my first manicure I also tried to seal these in with a gel top coat however the centres of the flowers are quite thick leading to a really uneven manicure. Now, you guys know I can wear enormous gems and studs but the feel of that really irked me.
I tried again and this time left the flowers in their delicate state which I felt looked prettier. I applied them by dabbing a small amount of top coat and sticking them on top. The longevity of the flowers is probably half the amount of time than if worn with gel but I felt that it preserved their delicateness.
Overall I really like these and I think I'll have fun deciding how to wear them. They are really unique and I love the range of colours they came in. Wouldn't they look cute paired with some decent stamping (Not my version of stamping, baha!)
