So, the ever-difficult first post where unfortunately I feel like I’m writing to myself. Since my infatuation with nail polish began just over a year ago, I thought it was time to jump on the nail blog bandwagon.
My intention with this blog is to be different. I am in no way in a position to show off a new nail polish every day, but I am in a position to show you the trials and tribulations of the average Joanne living in Australia. Where beauty products not only cost a fortune, but we also usually get them up to six months AFTER their release in the USA or Europe. Anywho, back to my blog being different. Let’s say I hope to bring you more than swatches and NOTDs. I want to present you with my journey into the nail polish world with a lot of fun along the way!
To start Dry, Dammit! here’s what I’ve been wearing for the past couple of days. The base is Sportsgirl Nail It! Moonlight Sparks with Revlon Knockout tips. Moonlight Sparks has perfect application in just two coats and I didn’t struggle with any goopy-ness, which is what I’ve read is the biggest complaint about the Sportsgirl polishes. Knockout was perfect in one application for the tips, which I created using chevron nail guides. I know many might disagree with me, but I really like Revlon polishes. Not only are they easily accessible, but they’re usually good quality. Pity though they’re expensive (AU$15 a pop!) and have a excruciatingly slow-changing colour line.
So, what do you think? Let me know. Thanks for reading!
