Golden Rose Paris #110

More Golden Rose! :D
This is Golden Rose #110 from their Paris line. A light brown creme nail polish that applies nicely and dries quickly.
On my nails you can see 2 coats without top coat. By the way this nail polish chipped only on the 7-th day of wear :).
Have a nice evening!

Born Pretty Store Nail Wheel Review

For today I have a review of nail wheels from Born Pretty Store.
I've got 10 pcs Clear False Nail tips Art Display Practice Wheel. The parcel arrived quickly. Nail wheels were good packed and arrived safely.
The set contains 10 nail wheels (each nail wheel has 20 nail tips on it) and can be purchased for 6.15 $.
Nail wheels are made from a pretty good clear plastic. They can be used for swatching or nail art.
When I've got nail wheels I immediatly started playing with them :).
I'm not sure why lower left corners on my photos look dark because I didn't cover the flash with my finger (I checked! :D ).


...and some blues :)


I'm totally satisfied with these nail wheels :).

El Corazon Kaleidoscope t-01

Hi girls!
I'm back with a swatch of my first mood nail polish El Corazon Kaleidoscope t-01.
I suppose that El Corazon is a Russian brand. I found on the label only address in Russia, but it's not said that the nail polish was made there.
The bottle contains 14 ml of the polish and it costed 5 $.

Sunlight. Without flash.

Application was normal and drying time was regular.
For my swatches I used 2 coats and probably I should also applied a layer of top coat because this nail polish contains some gritty particles.
"Warm" and "cold" colors appeared together only when I was playing with cold and hot water. Otherwise this nail polish was always one-colored. The color could be a bit darker or a bit lighter, but most of the time it looked like on the photo below.

Daylight, overcast. Without flash.

Close-up to show the gritty particles. They look darker than the polish.


This is how the polish looked after a really cold (with ice cubes! :D ) water.

Daylight, overcast. Without flash.

After a hot water the color became lighter and when I went outside to take photos, my warm wet tips quickly got colder and the color of polish became darker there. I should mention that the temperature outside was below zero :).

Daylight, overcast. Without flash.

And this is what happened with the color when I first put my fingers in a hot water and then dipped half of each nail in a cold water. I hardly captured the gradient before it was gone.

Daylight, overcast. Without flash.

Overall I'm disappointed because I hoped that gradient effect would be visible at least when I'll be going outside from a warm room. If I knew that the result would be like this I wouldn't buy this nail polish.
Have a good weekend! :)

Golden Rose Jolly Jewels #115

Golden Rose Jolly Jewels #115 is a milky white base with different sized multicolored glitter.
Application and drying time were ok.
For the photos below I uses 2 coats of #115 and a thick layer of top coat.
I'm sorry for a weird skintone, but I'm taking photos outside and it's winter now, you know :). I'm already happy that it was a sunny day :).
I think I can strike off China Glaze It's A Trap-eze from my wishlist because they seem to look really close.

Merry Christmas Eve to all who celebrates today! (*)
