Hello! Today’s polish is chosen by my husband. I asked him to pick out his favourite nail polish from my collection, which apparently turns out to be Max Factor Candy Blue. Why? Because he once saw a woman at work wear the colour and thought it looked nice! And then asked her the name of the polish and told me to buy it. Should I be worried? Ha ha.
Candy Blue is a really pretty blue creme, which was opaque in two coats. The only thing that annoying about it is that it comes in one of those teeny tiny mini bottles and consequently has a teeny tiny brush to go with it. If you’re a bit heavy handed like me you might struggle, but a bit of practice helps. I don’t know why they don’t do this in the larger Max Factor bottles. The mini colours are much better than its larger colours, but I’m thinking it’s all a marketing ploy to make people buy more. I mean, it only makes Fantasy Fire in the mini bottles and that’s exceptionally popular.
- Where to buy: Priceline
- Cost: AU$5.95
- Volume: 5ml
- Coats to opacity: Two
Over the weekend I decided it might be a bit fun to do some newsprint-inspired stamping thanks to Vivid Lacquer plate VL004. This plate has some really pretty designs on it, including a TV, a city skyline and butterfly wings. Sadly though when I applied the top coat it pulled some of the polish I used, which was Fing’rs Flirt Nail Art Stamping Polish in white (this is part of a stamping kit I hope to review sometime soon). I should have waited for it to dry more I think.
So, what do you think? I reckon the newsprint would work well in a black-on-white combo, as you see with documents and books. Next time maybe. But I like the white on Candy Blue, too. Thanks for reading!
