Essence Special Effect Topper over Essie French Affair - Pink Wednesday

Hello everyone, 

Here's my Pink Wednesday post for you. Today, I have decided to do a simple and quick manicure. I am wearing Essie French Affair with Essence Special Effect Topper. I love this combination. Essie French Affair is a bit streaky and hard to work with, but with a glitter top coat I can hide some imperfections :)

Have a lovely Pink Wednesday everyone!!!

OPI - Skull and glossbones

Skull and glossbones is a unique light and creamy greenish grey. The colour is mild enough to be worn to work, but still pretty unusual and fashionable. It goes on smoothly and after drying it looks nice and glossy even without a top coat.  Three coats will give you flawlessly opaque creme coverage, but you could get away with two. It also dries really quickly. Totally recommend!

Catrice - Khaki Perry 680

Catrice Khaki Perry came out in limited Modern Muse eddition.Catrice describes this edition as:

“So Brigitte Bardot, so beautiful – the new Limited Edition “Modern Muse” by CATRICE interprets the legendary style icons of the 60’s in a whole new manner this August and September 2011!
The nails – elegant, with a metallic shine – perfectly suited to the style. Modern muses – that’s us!”

I find this polish hard to describe so I will just say that it is khaki metallic with silver and gold shimmer. The formula was a little bit thick but a few drops of thinner solved it.
The coverage was pretty decent, but it required 2 coats. Definitely not one coater as Catrice describes it.
I will definitely enjoy wearing this polish all autumn.

3 coats, no top coat, no base coat

Lucky me!!!

I was recently lucky enough to win Sigma Miss Taylor Kabuki brush from Lip Gloss Gossip. Please check out her blog if you haven’t already.  She does really amazing blog posts :)

I also love the card that Sigma sent me together with my brush.

I would like to thank Sigma for sending me this amazing brush. I love how super soft this brush is. The quality is amazing and I just adore the colour. I was also impressed how pretty fast it arrived. It took less than a week!!!

Please don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't already!!!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Pink Wednesday - Avon Pink Radiance

Happy Pink Wednesday :-))
This week I have chosen Avon’s Nailwear Pro in Pink Radiance.
This is a lovely girly pink foil, so bright and fun. I think it is a great colour for summer.
It doesn’t streak and it goes opaque with one coat, but I but I used two coats for full coverage.
The only disadvantage is, that it takes a while to dry. 
Overall, I am happy to have this polish in my collection, I love wearing it on my toes too.
