I know i'm a bit later than usual with my posts - I am trying to get my sleeping pattern back to normal!
After my last manicure I felt so damned gaudy... I felt like I had to step it up a bit.
This usually happens - after wearing black I tend to go for something totally different, then that ends up feeling like it was way too overkill so I usually go back to black.
But somehow I don't think that me having every other post with black nails will quite cut it, will it now?
So I went for something a bit different.
I still wanted something vampy, but something warm, something with class.
Originally I was going to go with a red but I found this in my little box of tricks and couldn't stop staring at the bottle! I made it a bit different by doing a half moon manicure with it.
I did this last night before going to sleep so excuse the sheet marks! Ack!
But isn't this colour just DIVINE?!
It's a burgundy purply elixir.
This one is "High Mantenance" by ChiChi - an Aussie brand.
Find out about them here:
I love ChiChi - the names are amazing - Mortisha, Mermaid, Jitterbug - too cute! Also, most of them go for the sort of names like -"Plain Jane" "Movie Star" "Soapie Addict" "Paparazzi Princess" "High Heeled Housewife" "Corporate Femme".
Not to mention it applies like a DREAM.
This is two coats but it would have been fine with one - Except I'm a total doofus and bumped one of my fingers.
The moons are the "natural" colour from a french manicure kit by Sally Hansen - this one is "Sheer Romance".
But seriously, Sally Hansen? Natural? I'm a half british goth and that is in no way natural on ANY LIVING PERSON.
Also - it applies HORRIBLY.
It streaks and its sheer in a way that you end up with gross patchy globs.
Originally I just wanted a wash of colour but it just wouldn't work for me.
So I ended up just applying until it was opaque.
I lost count at 6 coats. SIX!!!!
Has anyone else tried these?
So what do you think?
I can't stop looking at my nails because of how much this colour ROCKS.
