Week #8 – Trip to Dalston

So I visited Pak’s Cosmetics in Dalston where you won’t pay more than £1.50 for a nail colour.

The quality is very thin so it is yet another of these 4-coat situations, but sometimes you can’t argue with spending £1 instead of £10. It’s up to you. Lion King, Lion Queen, as they say.

WHAT WE USED:

L-R:

Beauty Forever – 30

Beauty Forever – 49A

Beauty Forever – 130

No 7 ‘Stay Perfect’ in Betty Blue (so blue it’s actually black after one layer)

Standard cheap as chips eBay striping brush.

7.5/10

I didn’t feel as though this contrast nail really worked well with the rest. It was a clash…not enough to be gaudy and satisfying, but enough to slightly irk.

Was very into the custard / skin colour, though. Hope to put to better use in future.

The glittery polish was so gloopy and thick it took an age to dry. About two weeks later there is still no sign of chipping to these nails, so they have been incorporated into the next look.
