>>Personal Review on: Sally Hansen Color Foil Collection 'Purple Alloy'

How can one resist from buying polish when one goes to Target to buy some Anti-Coolant stuff for her vehicle? LOL.. Well, this one is from Sally Hansen called 'Purple Alloy' from the new Color Foil Collection.
I just couldn't resist not getting one to try it out. I am glad that I started out with just one and you will find out why if you decide to stay to read my own personal review on it! ;)
I've gotta say that this bottle is almost exactly the same color of the polish on my own nails. I'm impressed by that for sure!
^ Here is two coats of it on my natural nails without any base or top coat.

^A photo shot of 'Purple Alloy' in direct sunlight.

^ On my nails here, there are three coats applied. & As you can see here on my nails, the polish is wearing off even with three coats also without a base or top coat.
I honestly think that this polish isn't really worth my $6.99 but it is my favorite shade of purple indeed! I find it very metallic like rather than foil and that made me a bit disappointed. The application itself was smooth like butter, though it dried very streaky. What I've noticed about this application was that at the first application, it was more metallic though it seemed foil like. After  second or a third apply, it became more metallic and streaky. If you haven't noticed, on my index finger on the third photo above shows a more smooth finished dry, while the other three nails looked streaky. I have not idea how that happened but it was pretty disappointing. I wished the rest of the other three nails had looked like the index fingernail. Though 'Purple Alloy' only recommended a no base application and top coat as it should be worn alone. Still, this wasn't what I had expected but I did enjoy this shade of color. Oh, and one last thing! I don't like polished that dry and show the rigged, fine and imperfections on your nails. It made me a bit sad but oh well!
Let me know what are your thoughts on this one?! ;)

》bornprettystore review on White Crystal Rhinestones #3767

I am happy to share with you all another review on some gorgeous rhinestones from bornprettystore.com that was given to me freely by the website owners themselves to review!

This product is called 144 pcs Bornpretty White Crystal Rhinestones SS10 Acryw UV Nail Art

My personal review on these gorgeous rhinestones will be a simple and short review because I simply love these! I love the fact when I used nail glue to apply it over my nails, it didn't rub off any of the color that was ln the rhinestone. Another plus is that even with a nice and generous top coat over the rhinestones and nails, its shiny, prismatic colors remained on the crystal rhinestones.

I highly recommend you this product bc even after a removal of your manicure, you can still also manage to save the rhinestones to reuse them later on! I, myself have saved over five of them and they still have their original look to them!

Come follow me at:

(First, apply your base coat to protect your natural nails.)

 Secondly, apply your base color. (If you want a more bold look like how I had done for this review, anything is possible!!) You can also apply a sheer natural color for a natural look for a French manicure instead too.
^Third, either wait 4-5 minutes for the base color to dry or apply a fast drying top coat..
You can afterwards apply one of the French manicure edge tip guide strips like shown. (I had three variety of designs to choose from but I chose the one that had a light v-curve on this manicure! Its the one in the middle.)
left to right: OPI 'I Just Can't Cope-Acabana', China Glaze 'Sun Of A Peach' & 'Petal To The Metal'

Fourth step, whether or not you choose to apply a white tip with a white polish or to dab some gradient over the tip guide like how I had done shown.. Either way, I find it very nice!
Fifth step, peel off the tip guide and apply a top coat and you're done!
