Hello! Today I did a simple freehand manicure to compliment F.U.N. Lacquer Happy Ending. Happy Ending is a lovely blurple (blue x purple) holographic with tiny flecks of gold glitter. The color is beautiful and most stunning under direct light as shown in my photos. Just a small word of warning, this polish does contain glitter so like any other glitter polish, it may require some extra effort to remove. I did not experience any staining.
Monroe is a lovely deep burgundy scatter holo jelly. It is opaque in 2-3 coats, and dries shiny and flat! The swatch photos below are without a layer of top coat! This is not a glitter polish either, so it’s super easy to remove as well.
Happy Chinese New Year everyone! :-) Hope you all were able to celebrate with friends or family. This is my third Chinese New Year away from home and this year we decided to do hot pot with a group a friends. For my nails I decided to do a look inspired by Fan Bing Bing’s outfit in The Empress of China. I haven’t seen the series yet, but the outfits look stunning! I’ve heard mixed reviews of the series so I’m a little hesitant to commit to watching it.
I also love the song that Jane Zhang sang for The Empress of China.
Like Rathy mentioned in her previous post, we were sent some beautiful polishes from Il Etait Un Vernis to try. The formula for these were absolutely excellent and a charm to work with. I think my favorite of the bunch would have to be Something To Remember. I love this mauve-y purple color, and thought it would look perfect with a little accent of gold. I tried some nail stamping for the first time using Born Pretty’s stamping plate item #17266.
How are you planning on decorating your nails for Christmas this year? I created a simple santa nails tutorial to share with you guys today, hopefully there’s an idea here you can grab for your holiday manicure.
