So, this is what we’ve learned so far about Magda’s colour preferences: pinks and reds-no, browns and oranges-yes. But what about blues?!? Much like Friday’s leftover Chinese food on a Sunday, it’s a maybe. Buuuut, I did promise to branch out. So, following the advice of my bestie, Marta at Chitchat Nails, I decided to give Rimmel Midnight Blue,a deep royal blue, a whirl.
Ok, I’m not gonna lie, I COULDN’T STOP staring at my nails!!! This blue colour is gorge on its own. The formula is fantastic, and covers really well in just two twin coats. Rimmel also did a fantastic job with the wide brush. And I do have to say that after three days, no chips in sight! I figured that adding a contrasting stamp would bring out the shimmer in this polish. And, boy, was I right. Using China Glaze Hi-tek and Bundle Monster 207 plate I applied the design vertically. A complete epic fail! This was my first attempt at stamping vertically, and we didn’t hit it off right away. But, much like that whole bike riding thing and the heavy European accent, I will over come this as well! 😛
Thanks to this decadent colour, being blue isn’t such a bad thing for once! 🙂
So, are you dabbling with these oh-so-of-the-moment darks?
