Kleancolor Sweet Pea

Not had a Kleancolor on in a while. This is one that my husband picked out the drawer for me to wear. It's a lovely light green with a subtle sparkle.

With flash.

Artificial light.


 


This is easy to use, easy to apply but VERY slow drying and I mean slow. It needs 3 coats for a good finish and took ages to dry. It dents if not fully dry, but once it's dry it lasts well. You need patience for this one!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. It's a lovely colour but I'm not sure about the 'shimmer' part in the name, certainly didn't spot it lol! Sadly scuffed easily but didn't chip!

Asda George 89 Beach Bum

OMG it's been like weeks since I last posted. Had intended to be posting regularly as I've got some great polishes to wear, but sadly the weekend before Halloween I took ill and it lasted about 2 weeks. Was nasty and my hubby had to look after me. So painting my nails wasn't top of the list! I'm back and feeling much better now. So on with the show.

Haha not another Asda one! This is golden greeny one.

Artificial light.



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. The brush is really good and the lid is comfortable to hold. It lasted well for £1! I think Asda have them on offer at £1 so might as well stock up on them!
