Avon vintage blue + konad
Posted on Wednesday, October 27, 2010 | 4 Comments
I haven't posted in a while..I've been rather busy with halloween pumpin carving =)
Before I go into today's post I wanted to address the piggy polish question that keeps popping up in my email. A lot of you have been asking me when Piggy Polish baby I love your waves will be available online (if there's an ulta nearby they sell Piggy Polish too). I contacted Julie Lown, the owner of piggy polish, and she informed me that baby, I love your waves will be available on sale by the end of the month =) and they do ship internationally..yay!
Back to today, I am reviewing Avon's vintage blue.
This is 2 coats + top coat.
*second coat opaque
*I didn't find it chalky
*cheap, $2.99 canadian
*good brush, similar to a china glaze brush which I like
*the wear was great, the polish in the pictures is 4 days old
*first coat was streaky
*without a top coat it wasn't as shiny as I would have liked to it to be
So konading time!! I had trouble deciding what polish to konad with.
The first konad I did was using china glaze DV8 and the image plate m78
(these nails haven't been cleaned up yet so they still look rather messy)
It looks alright but I wasn't really happy with it so I removed it and rekonaded with Avon's mirror shine polish in glisten.
I like the 2nd konad better using avon glisten better =)
Tell me which konad you guys like!
btw: I konad with the double ended stamper I got from delaynee, and I love it! it is way easier to stamp with a double ended stamper than the short one sided stamper.
