Lately I've been attracted to glittery/foil nail polish. Normally, I don't like glitter too much because of the effort required to remove it (which is why I only did 1 nail on my left hand and 2 nails on my right hand with the foil). Ever since this fail, I've been wary of cheap foil nail polish. A friend recommended this one though, so I had high expectations.

BK Nail Polish Fashion Color in Dark Blue (the foil)
Only two coats for full coverage, but I did have to put on a thick coat of Seche Vite to smooth out the gritty surface. In real life the bottle pulls a little navy, but on the nail this picture is a good representation. It has large chunky silver/holo glitter, as well as small silver and blue glitter. It dried quickly which I approve of. As with all foils however, a pain in the butt to remove!

Etude House Petit Darling Nails HD Beam in BL504 Star Ultra Marine (seriously, who comes up with these names in Korea? such a mouthful!)
I got this polish a while ago, and have worn it before, but never posted it. The name of the shade fits it perfectly, it is a marine blue. In the bottle it has tiny purple and navy shimmers, but once on the nail I can hardly notice the purple. It comes across as a slight blue shimmer. Two coats for this photo as well, great consistency and fast drying.

That's all folks!

  7. Has there been any word if BK does animal testing?

    I love their polish as they are affordable and I heard that it's pretty good, but I'm iffy about getting products that condone animal testing.
