Metallic mirror nail polish



Metallic mirror nail polish from Beauty Big Bang

Today I’m going to show two things I got from Beauty Big Bang recently in return for an honest review. Beauty Big Bang is a web store that sells all kinds of stuff for nails and nail art and they ship internationally.

The first thing is listed as “1Bottle Red Purple Metallic Nail Polish & 1Bottle Stainless Steel Mirror Silver Base Coat”. It’s a set – a metallic nail polish and a base coat that makes the polish easier to apply. The set looks like this and it’s listed here.


I applied a layer of the base coat first. It’s easy to apply evenly. The drying time is slow. I have this habit of gently touching the nail with the upper lip to feel if a polish is dry… I can’t recommend you do that with this base coat. Any little surface imperfection will show, so you just have to wait until you’re absolutely sure it’s dry :D

When it was finally dry I applied one coat of the metallic polish. It’s easy to apply and it covers completely in one coat.

It’s a very pretty polish! Take a look – this is one coat and one layer of topcoat.


I really like the colour too.


That brings me to the next thing I’m going to show you: Skull head crystals! They are duochrome; they look like this and they are listed here.


I added one of them to my manicure. I applied another layer of topcoat and pressed the little skull into the topcoat.

This is what it looks like on the nail:


I think it’s a really cute skull, I love the colours!


It’s only for show though, or for girls with no C-curve. There’s no way that I can make this stick to my nails for an entire day. Take a look at what it looks like on my nail.


Here’s all the stuff I used for my manicure. 


The verdict:

Pros:
The polish is really pretty
The polish can be used for stamping
The polish is not prone for brush strokes
The skulls have a really great colour shift
The skulls are super cute!

Cons:
The base coat dries slowly
The polish will show every irregularity on your nails
The skull are just for show or for a really flat c-curve

Golden Rose ~ Holographic Nail Colour #04



Golden Rose ~ Holographic Nail Colour #04
Rose pink linear holo

Today it’s time for my third Golden Rose Holographic out of the four I bought. I usually save the best till last so check in again tomorrow to see my favourite of the bunch.

The formula is really good and the polish covered in two easy and fast drying coats.

I made little lines in red and turquoise on it and sealed the whole thing up with topcoat.

Here’s the final mani including topcoat. The picture is taken in the sun.


 This picture is taken in the lightbox. It shows the true colours of the holographic. It’s not as pale as the first two polishes I showed you.


Here’s the holographic on its own; two coats. The picture is taken in the sunshine.


Here are the polishes I used:

Golden Rose Holographic #04, Colour Alike: B. a Rudolph & B. a Raindrop

I don’t think I’d wear the holo on its own but it’s definitely more wearable for me than the two first I tried.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Strong linear holo
Overall impression: I love the strong rainbows!
Buy again: Yes

Holographic Peacock Chameleon Nail powder –green to blue

Holographic Peacock Chameleon Nail powder –green to blue from Beauty Big Bang

Today I’m going to show you a nail powder I got from Beauty Big Bang recently in return for an honest review. Beauty Big Bang is a web store that sells all kinds of stuff for nails and nail art and they ship internationally.

The powder is a holographic duochromatic nail powder. It comes in a small container along with two applicators. It looks like this in the container, and it’s listed here. The one I am reviewing today is number 9a.


If you have been here for a while, you will know I don’t do gel nails. I used Dance Legend’s glitter base as my base, and the powder sticks just fine to that. I used black as my base colour today. .

I rubbed the powder onto the dry base and the effect came out. It is really beautiful.

Here is what it looks like. There’s a layer of water based topcoat involved.


Look at that shift – isn’t it just beautiful!


The powder contains holographic pigment too! Let me turn on the flash for you so you can see it:


The rainbow effect isn’t as prominent as in the powder I tried a couple of days ago, but it’s still pretty. The duochromatic effect makes up for the lack of strong rainbows for sure!


The verdict:

Pros:
Amazing shift
Pretty rainbows
Easy to use

Cons:
You need a base that the powder can stick to
