Foil Wonder

It’s been a gloomy week with overcast skies and the monday blues.. so I thought I’d chase them away with really bright, shiny nails :)

ImageIsn’t it such a gorgeously beautiful colour? Unlike some polishes that appear lighter in the bottle and darker on the nails, the Faceshop’s FACEit polish in GL111 comes off perfectly on the nails as it does in the bottle. I couldn’t stop staring at my nails… then I decided that *omg* if I wear this shade to work it’ll blind people when I wave or gesture. HAHA! 

So I decided to do some dark tips, somewhat inspired by Madonna’s gladiator get-up during the Superbowl. It was really easy to execute, using this technique – and voila! In less than half an hour, my tips were done 


This was just such a great mood uplifter. I couldn’t stop glancing at my nails every now and then :)

Satisfaction + Pride + Perfection = Happiness.

Here’s a quick rundown of the polish:

  • Colour: Gold Foil
  • Opacity: Achieved in two coats. Attempted layering this over another polish, it pretty much obscured the other colour almost entirely in one coat, but on a bare nail, two coats are definitely required for complete coverage.
  • Dries: medium fast. vulnerable to scratches in the first 3 minutes
  • Imperfections: very easily covered up! some of the gold foil polish got chipped in the middle of the nail and I just painted over that patch, TOTAL INVISIBLE COVERUP. Awesome for clumsy fools like me! :) 

Overall, I’m pretty pleased with the polish, can’t wait to experiment with other polishes, though the formulae is slightly too runny to use as nail art, i think!
