Nailgirls - Taupe #1

Metallic taupe  

So Taupe #1 - is it taupe?  It seems to be more of a beige/grey shade but I suppose the purple tones in taupe aren't always visible in lighter shades.

Nailgirls descibe it as metallic mushroom which kinda fits...

I like it despite it being a bit frosty and a bit brushstrokey

Swatch shown is 2 coats, no top coat as usual

Alessandro - Turquoise Ocean

Bright blue creme  

This always happens, I manage to up my blog post rate for a challenge, in this case Nails Inc November, and then it all goes to pot once the challenge is over!

So trying to get back in the swing of things even though it's December and I've hardly done any Christmas shopping....

Turquoise Ocean is a lovely, if not super unique or very turquoise blue creme from Alessandro.

Application was great and the swatch shown is 2 coats for full opacity.

This is a mini, 5ml bottle that I picked up from the internet sale site Vente-Privee
