[China Glaze] Sun’s Up Top Down

It’s spring finally! At least the sun has come out and it is definitely getting warmer, especially compared to yesterday when the sky was grey and it rained almost all day long. I was so – literally – sick of the cold and dark wheather. Hope these fine days will last. 🙂 At least I carry some sunshine on my nails, Sun’s Up Top Down is a beautiful bright yellow with shimmer finish.

The formula is a bit runny with slight pooling at the tips. But somehow I managed a more or less smooth application (with three thin coats).

[China Glaze] UV Meant to Be

UV Meant to Be is a bright blue.

To be honest, its formula is pretty runny … nevertheless, UV Meant to Be is a beautiful colour and making up for the hard times application had given me. Two coats over white, and since this was so hard to capture again, photos were taken using my mobile.

There is also a new, white “colour booster base coat” (that’s actualy its name) by Essence, which I tried with UV Meant to Be, and it really worked in terms of colour-intensifying. Moreover, no stains upon removal, which I expected.

[Dior] Pink (599)

So finally this one. I have had Pink for a couple months now, without feeling the need to apply it … it’s more a salmon pink, but with shimmer, and that’s why I thought it might clash with my skin tone.

And it did! But not too much and not really visible in the pictures. 😉 What I liked most about Pink was, of course, its slight shimmer.
