NOTD China Glaze Month - Bad Landing
Hey everyone! I just want to say: w-o-w, I have 30 followers! The number made my otherwise bad day brighter, thanks alot for the support, y'all! :)
Like I said, I felt a bit of post-travel sadness yesterday and I felt like wearing something totally not-me and really bright. When I feel like that, I go trough the other end of the shoe box, because I sort the nail-polish after my taste, and at the very end stand those that don't catch my eye at all. But every once in a while, I want something completely different, and thus I picked Bad Landing. In the bottle it looks almost orange, and so bright, it hurts my eyes. What I really like about it is, that it changes colour depending on the lighting. I tried to capture that with flash and different lighting, and sort of picked a few shades. It goes from almost orange, to really warm cherry red with shimmer to being a tad bit pinkish because of the soft red-pink shimmer that it has.
With strong flash, you can see the orange side of it.
This is outside, in cloudy weather, where it's bright red. It's like this most of the time, I guess, with the shimmer, that it's not visible on this picture, but one can see it on the nails.
This is also flash, just softer, and you can see the red/pinkish shimmer, that adds the warmth to the red colour.
Judging by the looks my friends and family give me (can't wait to see the expression on my BF's face :D), they think this colour is really a no-no, but here's the weird thing - I totally like it. Although it's a bit too sheer, I can still see my nail under three coats, has alot of orange in it and even pinkish shimmer. Go figure.
What do you think? :)
Thanks for reading!
