This Guacamole is quite Hectic
I did not plan to post today at all, for the lack of time. As it seems, all the work in the world is waiting for me ... but you gotta see this. I remember asking for Guacamole at the last moment, when I saw the post on Tudo Sobre Esmaltes and fell in love with the name. The glitter looked great too, but I'm a huge fan of guacamole sauce and the word itself. It sounds so fun! Luckily Eveline was able to get me a bottle. I immediately thought Illamasqua's Hectic would be a great base for this baby. And they make, for me, a perfect combination. I'm wearing this for the third day now and I'm still not sick of it, not one bit. I think this will be one of the really rare moments when I have to remove the polish because the nail growth shows too much and not because I got sick of it. Oh, and FYI, third day going and minor tipwear on only two of my nails. Honest!
Taken in artificial light. As you can see, the neon finish of yellowish green glitter turns into 'normal' greenish one. Love it.
Frankly, BBF is perfect in all lights. I freakishly adore this glitter. And I think it looks perfect on the unique green that Hectic is. Three coats of Hectic and two of Guacamole. Oh, and the brush is great on Guacamole. It hugs nail perfectly and the glitter is distributed evenly.
BBF is otherwise, if I understand correctly, an indie brand that is also a reseller of some known brands (also Penélope Luz!). BBF has some pretty great collection of nail polish, especially glitters, from what I remember off their official page and FB page. For some unknown reason their official page doesn't work for me right now, hopefully they bring it back soon. Anyway ... I'm really impressed with Guacamole. Seriously awesome glitter and Eveline, you're awesome for sending me this one! :)
Do you know BBF?
Thank you for reading!
