Collection 2000 Gothic Glam Nail Polish Review 3 Deadly

Hi Hi! 😀

First Lookdsc_7157

The nail polish bottle has a long black handle and a sticker around it. The colour is a black with shimmery gold glitter.

The Nail Polish I tried

 I have Deadly 12ml

My Experiencedsc_7149

I found this nail polish too look pretty good in one coat but even better with two coats of nail polish. My cuticles are still dry and the wide brush made it difficult to avoid it. The nail polish dried pretty quick so again putting too much nail polish became an issue.

My Thoughts

I was quite happy to use this nail polish as it wasn’t just a plain black which I’m not actually a fan of. It was a subtle pretty nail polish.

Overall

I give this nail polish 8/10. I would definitely use this one again.

Using a brush for clean up

Elf concealer brushHi Hi! 😀

I thought would talk about something different. I have mentioned about using a nail polish remover pen to clean up during and after a manicure. To see the review please click the link: https://theheartofnails.wordpress.com/2016/06/07/nail-polish-remover-pen-review/

I do like using the nail polish remover pens but they are more of a disposable or on the go choice which you will eventually need to replace when it gets too dirty. I will continue to use the pens as they are easy to use except when they dry out. I have also started using a brush as a more permanent choice of clean up, which would be better for when you are at home, where you can pour some nail polish remover into a small cup/bowl or the cap from your bottle to dip your brush so a little bit fiddly.

I was looking at some of the nail art brushes that I have and tried them out but they were either to long or too thin. I heard about using a more flat brush so I ended up on Ebay. I found this  concealer brush by Elf for £2-3 and have had no problems with it except when a particularly dark shade of nail polish stained it slightly but it does not transfer on to the skin like the nail polish remover used to do when the nib needed changing. The brush works nicely in the sides of my nails whether the nail polish is wet or dry but easier when wet so best to clean up as you go along. After cleaning the polish on the skin I wipe the brush on the cotton pad before dipping in to the nail polish remover. When I am all done I use some hand wash liquid  to clean it then leave to dry.

Happy Raksha Bandhan

Hey Hey! 😀

To all that celebrate today:

Happy Raksha Bandhan!

To those who don’t know this day, it is the day to celebrate the relationship between brothers and sisters, where the sister ties a rakhi or a sacred thread on her brother’s right hand wrist for his well being and in return receives his protection of her.

May your family be blessed and receive good fortune on this day 😀
