Sorry for the lac of post ladies, I had a little mini bloggers breakdown. I found myself overwhelmed with everything I needed to get done and had no motivation to do any of it. So I took a few days off and treated myself to no blogging action, it was hard not to check my stats. But I did treat myself to some much needed time with friends, laughs, food and shopping. I'm now back and I feel energized, prepare to see a fairly full on week for Nail Gun XS the blog and for Arcane the polish.
Enough sob sob, poor me, woe is me, let's get on with the polish.
Alanee Renee recently sent me a few polishes to review, I of course jumped at the chance as their polish has been on my hit list for a while. The three I have picked come from the new Magical World Collection.
First up is Drink of Despair, it's no surprise I picked this one as my recent green kick as been driving my polish choices as well as my shopping purchases. This one is LOADED with green hexes n a few different sizes but all the same shade, if you wanted to you really don't need a base colour. But I chose to use Ulta3 Lucky Bamboo to offset the glitter and help it pop on the nail rather than loose the glitter detail by layering it on it's own. So that's 2 coats of Lucky Bamboo and 1 coat of Drink Of Despair.
Next is Golden Snitch which is a hell of a lot prettier in real life and it's polishes like these that really need the natural light of outdoor photos, but as that isn't an option for me right now I had to make do with the lightbox. So I played around no light and just flash, flash and light, no flash with just light. I would ideally like to re-swatch this during better weather conditions.
2 coats, no undies needed, isn't it pretty?!?
Lastly we have Horcrux which is my favourite from this bunch, with a dark black jelly base with blue and what looks to be purple micro flakies, this one dried a lot quicker than the others; I put this down to the density of the polish. I really adore this, it looks like an opal. I know nothing about the Harry Potter movies so I dunno what all these names represent, sorry :( Can anyone enlighten me?
