Hello darlings! How are you? Already healed of all the hangovers? ;) I have a lazy Sunday, as usual, and I'm slowly getting adjusted to idea, that I have to study my butt off, starting tomorrow. But that's for tomorrow! Today it's lazy nail-polish day. I'm kinda bummed about Tronica not being that holo as I wanted it to be, but I still like the base colours, so the hunt is still on. I still want a few from OMG collection and I wish they did more different colours. Like black or grey holo. And dark green holo. And dark blue holo. That would be super awesome.
But I'm also loving two colours from Zoya Intimate collection, have you seen the swatches? Scrangie and Vampy Varnish already put them on. We were chatting about them on Alluring_mum's neck of the internet and I didn't think much of the collection after seeing the colour drops. But swatches of Gemma and Danni made me fall in love with them! Totally awesome colours! I'm thinking about Caitlin too, I think it would be good with my skintone. And it's a cute colour. We'll see. All in all a nice surprise from Zoya!
But now to the swatches. Another Nubar (sorry, Nail crazy ;) :D) and this one is even more unique than the others, if that's possible. Prevail!
It dries up in satin finish that I think really suits this colour. And it also surprised me. I had in my memory the glossy swatch Scrangie posted, with TC, that made me fall in love with Prevail. And you know I had to ...
I think this one shows the best what I adore about this colour. See how it remains purple in every light, but gets dark purple on the edges? That's how it looks like all the time. I could have eaten my nails wearing this, it was so yummy.
This is two coats of Prevail, later followed with one coat of Seche Vite. I adore it, i think it's really unique. It reminds me of Catherine the Grape, but it's not the same, it's much darker and satin or glossy, it gets this amazing glow that I adore. I think it looks better with top coat, but it's also awesome with satin finish. All in all a great, really great greyed purple, a part of a really awesome Fall 2009 Nubar collection called Modern Matte. I really want Avant-garde too from this collection.
The application is very neat, much better than with most of matte polish. It gave me hardly any trouble, it applied like every other Nubar. Quite awesome, I'd say. I got bigger tip-wear on the second day, being matte and all, but still, I think it would last through the third one without a problem, but I removed it.
Awesome colour, don't you think?
Thank you for reading, have a nice evening!
