Pink-a-BOO!

Wearing not very alizariney colors - will it ever end? Not yet. I saw this bottle at a friend's, and fell in love with the shimmer. Thought "This will be perfect for work!", forgetting I don't have one at the moment. Anyway, I couldn't capture the shimmer in Essie's Pink-A-Boo. In reality, it's very pretty, here it's just washed out. I wore this manicure for several days before I got tired of it. Am I getting old..?






In this last picture you can sense the greatness of the shimmer. Imagine it a million times better in reality. I used three coats. Like I've said a bunch of times before, I'm not very skilled when it comes to application of pastels and sheers and the like, so I need to build them a bit to get rid of unevenness. Also, it makes me feel a little more comfortable, since I'm used to wearing opaque colors.

Have you surrendered to this prettyness yet? Will you? Is it okay that I have? asks the girl woman who used to avoid feminine shades.

Swedish word of the day:
tjejigt -adjective girly
Huh? Wait... What?

  3. Känner igen mig. Tyckte oroväckande nog att denna var riktigt söt. Ska försöka lägga på minnet så att jag kan införskaffa en dag.

  5. The shimmer looks great, I wonder how it would look layered over some other colour, have you tried that?

    1. Not yet, I have a feeling the base will make the underneath color look a little streaky. Besides, I have way too many layering shimmers to choose from. :D

  9. That's beautiful! Seeing this, I want to change my purple polish to white even though I just applied it.

  10. It looks beautiful on you! I have it and I love it!! It's not for old women, maybe you're needing light colors after a long winter... I sure do!

  11. You have talked me into this one finally! I have been on the fence for a long time with this shade wondering if the shimmer would show and also if it would be too sheer and build up as I wanted to wear it looking chalky. It's not chalky and I can deal with doing 3 coats - no problem! Now to find it!
