On a personal note: I’ve been quite busy these days and I know that I’m behind with posting – I did some other swatches and will blog them soon. I am currently writing up my PhD thesis, which is kind of a nightmare… Moreover, we had a guest, one of my best friends, with us for the weekend; I took loads of photos – since we did some nice outings – but accidentally deleted them before having them transferred to my laptop. 😦 So sad about these lost memories!)
But back to business. Here is my first experience with MAC nail polishes, Ice Cream Cake from this year’s Quite Cute Collection, pink with a touch of pastel and a crème finish.
I must admit that I’m not that much into MAC polishes, since I do not really like the shape of their bottles and most colours just do not seem of interest to me. But as for Ice Cream Cake, I could no longer resist. It is not unique, but so girlish and princess-like and cute at the same time. Application turned out to be good; as for the first coat I had too much polish on the brush but afterwards it worked very well… this is two coats. Please excuse the bump on the middle finger; I was wearing a glitter polish before.
Here’s the latest swatch, taken on 20 June 2012. This looks much nicer, also capturing the actual colour much better! Ice Cream Cake is indeed a lovely shade.
