You know what's a little off putting? When you receive unsolicited advice about the quality of your photography and when you start developing a complex about your white balance. I have never pretended to be a professional photographer and nor will I ever become one. I am in awe when I see amazing photographic work. It's a skill that I would love to become better at but so is cooking, swimming, learning on how to contour/highlight/apply blusher on your face properly and millions of others things I would love to become better at.
If you can bear with my white balance and assorted photography crimes, here are some VERY quick snaps of a gorgeous nail polish from European brand Essence, which I have acquired from a dear Spanish friend in a makeup swap. This nail polish is called 'Gagalectric', one of the 5 polishes released in the not so very cleverly named 'Holographics' limited edition Collection of Essence, released some time ago.
There is nothing holographic about Gagalectric but if you can go past the annoyance of the name, you will be able to enjoy the delights of a gorgeous duochrome nail polish. Life is too short to apply 5 coats of polish to achieve full opacity so I chose to treat my Gagalectric as a topcoat and wear it over 1 thin coat of Boots no.7 Lucky Lilac. My photos show 1 coat of Boots no.7 Lucky Lilac (see worn on its own here) and 2 coats of Gagalectric.
About to be stuck in a train for a long journey, got minutes of a meeting to type up, this polish will keep you entertained for hours as you will not be able to help yourself admiring the colour changes as you move your fingers. Despite the noticeable brushstroke marks, Gagalectric is simply mesmerising and I get all excited thinking of all the colour combinations of I could achieve with different layering options.
Oh I wish England sold Essence polishes.
