blue ombre mani

*Purchased by Me

Hey all!

I swung by the post office  today to pick up my fimo flowers which Tmart finally shipped, I’ll be doing a post on them next week, do look out for that! ^^ I still have dried flowers yet unsent, so hopefully they’ll reach soon.

Anyways, I have a post on an ombre mani which I did. Actually I was just bored and decided to use all my blue polishes, which isn’t much! Here they are in all their glory:



(From L>R: The Face Shop BL602, Couleur Inc Beid 97, China Glaze For Audrey and The Face Shop GR501.)

Beid 97 is actually much darker compared to For Audrey, but it was tough translating it into pictures!

IMG_4250 Here’s a better shot.

Beid 97 leans more teal, while For Audrey is a much darker shade as compared to the robin blue than I expected. Perhaps it could be due to my skintone?

Anyways I decided to swatch Catrice Goldbusters over this ombre mani.



Goldbusters is basically a clear based polish with gold flecks for layering. Very shimmery.

It did not merge very well with the lighter blues; I’m guessing something darker is more suitable. I’m not very happy with this swatch, so you can expect a swatch of this polish over black sometime soon!


I was also rather surprised to learn that I did not have as many blue polishes as I remembered, but happy that they were all different! (:
