BPS Flourescent Polish #15 review + palm tree mani;

hi :)

a few weeks ago, i was offered to review a few items for Born Pretty Store; i got a few items so i'll split them up and do a few separate reviews. first review, Flourescent Polish #15.

two coats. the polish was just a bit thick but it applied beautifully. for being a bright neon, it covered perfectly in two coats ... just amazing! its sooo bright & pretty. looooove it :) its a vibrant, bright, neon yellow with slight green undertones.

here's a picture with flash. the color looks a bit shrek-ish here .. but irl, its not. just imagine less green.

i decided to do a bright, neon gradient...

this is my instagram'd picture so its not exactly color accurate. the pink is China Glaze's Flip Flop Fantasy.

then i decided to do a palm tree mani;

this picture shows the polish colors better ..

but this picture shows the gradient better. irl, the colors more neon & vibrant.

Dermelect polishes review + floral mani;

hey :)

a few weeks ago, Alyssa over from Dermelect Cosmeceuticals kindly offered me to review two polishes from their new 'ME Collection'. i was sent Persuasive & Above It.

2 coats of Persuasive. the formula was just the tiniest bit thick but it was easy to work with.

2 coats of Above It. the formula for this one was just a bit watery, but again, it was easy to work with.

the bottles are just adorable! and the polishes are beautiful and very easy to work with .. so i decided to do a floral mani with it.

the colors of Persuasive & Above It are off in this picture ... but they complimented the floral so well.

you can check out the polishes here. again, a big thanks to Alyssa of Dermelect Cosmeceuticals.

have a good one,
