I just wanted to share two quick NOTD’s before I hit the hay to recover from my flight (I *hate* planes), so here is my last manicure before I traveled, which was Pompous by Rimmel. It’s a gorgeous dark purple with pink & blue glitter bits- just like Essie’s Sexy Divide but much more purple and it definitely does not look black indoors, it’s quite vivid. I added a small Konad fleur de lys, I can never leave my ring finger plain, haha!
Application is not the best here, but the polish was really hard to deal with- I think I need a new base coat.
And now my first manicure AFTER returning, I did this just before posting here earlier! It’s Sally Hansen’s Sheerly Opal french manicure kit. I got it mainly because my mum has an ancient Sally Hansen kit and the white polish was drying out, but it had the BEST brush- it made free handing effortless which I loved because the stickers just end up in a mess, for me personally. Anyways I’d never seen the opal shade, and it was prettier than its beige cousin that is sold everywhere here- but unfortunately they’ve changed the brush! It’s needle thin and terrible, so I’ve exchanged it with the older brush, and ta-da! Easy freehanded french!
The blue opal-y flash was really hard to capture, unfortunately.
I’ll admit I’m rarely a classic french kinda girl but my mum LOVES it, and she gets so happy when I wear it, haha! The little flower decal is one of the bunch I picked up during my holiday 🙂 I also got so sick of wearing one colour for over a week so the neutrals are a nice break until I swatch my new purchases for you all!
