A’dor Beauty Supplies Queen

Evening! Hope your day has been lovely. Tonight I have to show you A’dor Beauty Supplies Queen. Queen is a beautiful purple creme with purple and blue iridescent shimmer and small and large gold hexes. It’s very pretty!

What you see above is two coats of Queen over one coat of Ulta3 Royal Fever. I don’t actually think this needs undies, but I did it just in case because Royal Fever was a very good match for the purple base. Queen dries gritty so you will need a top coat, I found one layer was enough.

Queen has a really beautiful purple/blue shimmer to it that I think made this polish extra special. Queen is actually one of the first polishes I bought from Etsy and I can’t believe it’s just now I’m trying it (about seven months later)! I loved wearing it. What I love about this polish is that it’s vegan as well as being Big 3 free.

Well that’s me for another night! Let me know what you think of Queen. Thanks for reading!

Entry for Nails by Kayla Shevonne’s indie nail art contest

Hello! Today I have something a bit different for you – my entry into a Indie Polish Nail Art Contest hosted by Nails by Kayla Shevonne.

The whole idea of the contest – if you haven’t gathered from the name – is to create a nail art design with indie nail polish(es). This is very challenging considering most indies are glitters as opposed to a solid colour. You can use non-indie polishes but they mustn’t be the ‘star’ of the show, if you know what I mean.

As you can see, I decided to go with skittle design also incorporating a diamond shape on top in a complementary colour. The polishes I used were:

  • Pointer finger – Gloss ‘n Sparkle Fruit Tingle and Alanna Renee Purple Addiction
  • Middle finger – Emily de Molly Ego Friendly and Ador Beauty Supplies Kokomo
  • Ring finger – WingDustCollections Hope and Ador Beauty Supplies Lux
  • Pinky – Love Thy Polish Peppermint Patty and Emily de Molly Stuck on Blue
  • I used a black Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen to outline the diamonds

I’m very excited about this competition! There’s a few entries now and the calibre is high, so I’ve got my fingers crossed. There’s three prizes up for grabs and they all sound great.

So, what do you think of my design? Reckon it’s a winner? Thanks for reading!
