Illamasqua Week - Harsh & Boosh Nail Varnish Duo Part 1
Hello darlings! A very quick one today, for I have no time at all. Next in our Illamasqua week is Nail Varnish Duo called Harsh and Boosh, today I put Harsh in front, and it's quite fitting for it is a Harsh Tuesday!
Sparkle check photo.
So, quick explanation of mani - on my index and ring finger are 4 coats of Harsh alone. On my middle and little finger is one coat of Boosh, with one thick coat of Harsh on my middle finger and one thiner on my pinky (that looks by far more awesome). Then I did a scotch tape design as you can see, as always inspired by Erika from Chloe's Nails, on Harsh fingers only, with one layer of Boosh. On my index finger Boosh was rather thick, I didn't like that much, but I liked the design on my ring finger.
Hars is extremly sparkly and glittery and just insane, seriously people, it's one of the sparkliest polishes I've ever tried on. But application is not so good. I don't mind it being a 4 coater, for it is a glitter polish, you have to expect that, but it's a bit goopy, I had hard time spreading it on my more bent nails, like ring finger that is in the exact shape of an U. The silver particles are different from usual glitter, it's quite awesome, people, like someone cut really really fine particles of silver. I think that those with smaller or shorther nails would manage with three coats. Removal of it is glitter appropriate, don't get it on your skin, it's a PITA to get it off it. It's interesting how it can get removed from it's base when you remove it, it was floating in the air, I had it on my pants, everywhere, really.
This is a very "in your face" polish. I mean really. I couldn't have it on my nails more than a few hours, because it looked just to blingy for my taste, being silvery white. I'd die for the other Nail Varnish Duo though - Ruthless and Untold. Beautiful reds!
I'll talk more about Boosh when it'll be its time to shine, but all in all it's a good combination, very blingy, very holidays or special occasion appropriate. I love it much much more with Boosh as the main colour though.
What do you think? About the whole package and my mani? :) Don't forget to check the video to see how insanely sparkly Harsh is!
