Tony Moly Shooting Star

Tony Moly is a Korean cosmetic brand and the name means: "putting style into packaging". That is indeed what it promises, because they bring the cutest bunny lip gloss bars and many other products with adorable packaging.

Of course, my focus is on the nail polishes. This is GS09 Shooting Star:
Shooting Star is a pastel purple with lots of multi-coloured goodies in it. There are tiny silver, gold, red, blue and green glitters accompanied by larger hexagon glitters in gold, fuchsia, silver, green and light blue. I used Essence Peel Off basecoat to save the removal trouble. Maybe that is the reason why Shooting Star ended up looking pink on the nails, but it is definitely the cause of the tip wear.
Shooting Star looks great on its own for a glitter sandwhich mani or over a pink/purple base colour. The pictures show 3 coats of Shooting Star without topcoat.

Have a lovely weekend!

Twilight fan and you love nail polish? Then you might want to get the Breaking Dawn Part 2 collection from Essence. This collection offers 4 beautiful nail polishes. This is the first one:
Jacob's Protection is a dark grey base with lots of shimmers in blue, green, red and purple. On the nails, the blue shimmers are more visible.
The pictures show 2 coats of Jacob's Protection with one layer of topcoat.

What do you think of this collection?

Have a great one!

Framed Blue Heaven

In my previous post, I swatched the Color Club Blue Heaven which is a beautiful blue holo.  Today, I added a design to it:
I stamped with KIKO 386 Light Pastel Blue and used the design from BM 203.
The answer to the question whether Blue Heaven is also suitable for stamping is: YES! I tested on a nail wheel, but I didn't make a picture. So, I'll come up with a mani later.

Have a lovely one!
