Mish Mash Challenge Week 7: Least expensive polish - Golden Rose Matte Velvet #105


Happy hump day! For once I'm getting my post up on Wednesday :D This week we are using our least expensive polish/polishes. I chose Golden Rose Matte Velvet #105. This one was also in my untrieds so it was an easy choice. I found this from a discount bin at a local store and it cost me 1 euro. I believe I have never bought a polish cheaper than one euro :)

This is two coats of Matte Velvet 105 alone, no undies, no top coat.





Application was great and two coats is enough for an opaque result. This dries to a semi matte, shimmery finish. Very beautiful color :)  I have no complaints.

Now I'm off to check out what kind of awesome findings the other ladies have to show for this cheap polish week :D

Lynnderella - AquaMan Candy


Here's more Lynnderella for you from the new "Once Upon a Prince and More Man Candy" collection. This is AquaMan Candy, a stunning mix of glitter on a sheer base.

Here's how Lynnderella describes this polish "AquaMan Candy is made with a cyan-shimmered cyan base saturated with cyan glitters with red, pink, white and green accents. Perfect for mermaids and mermen".

This is two coats of Essie In The Cab-Ana, two coats of AquaMan Candy, a thin coat of Glitter Food and G & G HK Girl top coat.








AquaMan Candy applies perfectly. This is very packed with glitter so no fishing needed. There was also no need to place the glitter or even dab. I love the color combination on this one! Very unique and beautiful!

Try It On Tuesday: Essie - In The Cab-Ana



Here's my TIOT mani for this week. This is two coats of Essie In The Cab-Ana with G & G HK Girl top coat.





This applies nice and smooth and two coats is enough for opaque result. I really like this color and it's such a shame I let it sit there unused for almost the whole summer.

ABC Challenge - A is for Age Of Aquarius

***TÄLLÄ KERTAA SUOMENKIELINEN VERSIO LÖYTYY LOPUSTA***

I decided to join the ABC Challenge that is hosted by Kimber from Kimber's Lacquer Corner. There's quite a few of us doing this challenge and it's not too late to join in if you're interested. Just contact Kimber and come aboard, the more the merrier. We are posting once a week, on Wednesdays and rules are really simple. You choose a polish, brand or style of nail art that starts with a certain letter, naturally this week it's A, next is B and so on. The list of all the lovely ladies on this challenge can be found at the end of this post and from the ABC-Challenge tab on the top of the page.

I had actually already started this challenge on my own before Kimber announced that she is starting it and I post the letter A already. So I'll be lazy and use the same polish, Color Club Age Of Aquarius and photo for this too :P The original post is here and the English version can be found below the photo. 




Kuten osa varmaan huomasikin olen jo kertaalleen postannut tämän aloituksen ja kuvan, mutta päätin liittyä lähes samanlaista haastetta tekevään ABC Challenge-ryhmään ja aloitan nyt siis koko homman alusta. Laiska kun olen, niin en jaksanut valita uutta A-lakkaa vaan käytän nyt samaa. Alkuperäinen postaus löytyy täältä.

Kirjoitamme kerran viikossa aina keskiviikkoisin. Säännöt ovat yksinkertaiset: valitse lakka, merkki tai nail art-tyyli joka alkaa aina kyseisellä kirjaimella. Jos kiinnostuit niin mukaan voi aivan loistavasti liittyä tässäkin vaiheessa. Ota reippaasti yhteyttä Kimber's Lacquer Cornerin Kimberiin ja tule mukaan hauskaan joukkoon :) Lista muista osanottajista löytyy alapuolelta sekä ABC Challenge välilehdeltä.

Lumene Natural Code - 9 Live It Up

Tässä on Uudenvuoden manikyyrini. Lumene Natural Code sävy 9 Live It Up on kaunis turkoosin-vaaleansininen runsaalla hopeisella micro-glitterillä. Upea sävy sopii oivallisesti aurinkoiseen pakkassäähän. Tätä lakkaa tulee varmasti käytettyä useamminkin, sen verran kiva ja raikas sävy tämä oli.

Live It Up oli melko läpikuultavaa ja kolmen kerroksenkin jälkeen oli kynnen raja hieman näkyvissä. Tämä kuitenkin levittyi hyvin ja kuivui nopeasti. Poistaminen hiukan normaalia lakkaa hitaampaa micro-glitterin takia, mutta ei kuitenkaan liian hankalaa. Kuvassa OPI Nail Envy Soft & Thin x1, Live It Up x3 ja päällä Seche Vite.

This was my New Years mani, a mini nail polish from a Finnish brand Lumene Natural Code shade 9 Live It Up. Beautiful turquoise-light blue polish with a lot of silver micro-glitter. Perfect shade for a cold and sunny winter day. I think I'm gonna wear this a few more times this winter, such a nice and fresh color.

Live It Up is quite sheer and even after three coats I still had a visible nail line. Application was pretty good and it dried fast. Removal was a bit slow cos of the micro-glitter but not nearly as bad as glitter polishes usually are. In this mani I used: OPI Nail Envy Soft & Thin x1, Live It Up x3 and Seche Vite on top.

Since this is a Finnish brand I have no idea if you can buy this outside of Finland.
