Hello everyone! I have the glorious Divinity from Ninja Polish for you today! I received this and two other Ninjas from some wonderful polish girls I know through Facebook for my birthday last year, and I still haven’t written about them! Shame on me, I know, but here is Divinity!
Divinity has a warm purple base and loads of wonderful multichrome shimmer that, in the right light, goes from blue all the way through the rainbow to red. It was a little tricky to get the right lighting set up in my light box but I did the best I could so that I could show you guys the full extent of this magical beauty.
The formula was real good, but I was unlucky and got a slightly wonky brush which made application difficult – nothing a bit of cleanup can’t solve though! This here is two coats, but I think I’d prefer to wear it on a darker purple cream just to make the multichromatic effects pop even more. A stunning beauty of a polish, this. If you can find it anywhere, get it!
Hey everyone! This here was my number one unicorn for quite some time; Atlantis. I had a period when I loved everything green and blue, but then I must have grown out of it because I went back to reds and purples before long. However, regardless of your color preference, Atlantis is absolutely stunning.
It’s loaded with tiny hexagon glitter particles in teal with a holographic effect, suspended in a sheer teal base. You would never be able to get this opaque on it’s own (unless you applied like 6 coats, and good luck removing that!), so I layered it on Gina Tricot Beauty 179 Power Green, a medium dark petrol green cream polish. This is one coat Power Green, two coats of Atlantis and three (3!!) coats of Seche Vite top coat. Needless to say, it took some time to apply all of the coats, but damn, it was worth it!
Oooh, it’s wonderfully sparkly! I wore this for three whole days (and that’s a long time for me!) with barely any tipwear and one small chip on the one thumb. In fact, I took these photos just before I removed it! This is a three day old manicure! Don’t know who to thank, Gina Tricot, China Glaze or Seche Vite. Maybe they’re just a killer trio!
Here’s the minimal tipwear I got after three days at the computer at work. Not too shabby, if you ask me.
These beautiful rose decals were also part of my first order from BornPrettyStore, and I’ve used them once before I took these photos in a home gel-manicure. Decals work so damn well with gel polish it’s ridiculous, so if you have a set of gel polishes and a UV lamp, give it a try!
I’m wearing these decals on Maybelline Forever Strong Pro – Porcelain Pink.
Just like the hibiscus decals, these are printed on a white base and are a bit stiff, but will also eventually fall nicely into shape on your nail with a bit of massage and love. Some of the images are a bit big, so I had to cut them slightly to make them fit better, which is all fine with me.
They’re so girly and pretty! I’d love to try and wear these on a dense silver glitter polish (if I had one), or pale green and white stripes – makes me think of old fashioned wallpapers! And I just love the little swirly things and dots that fall from the rose, it’s all in the details, eh?
