Peripera Metallic Green

Hello again! Sorry for not posting for another week! I was so caught up with getting my life back ever since I became free from assignments hahahaha! Today I have for you Peripera Metallic Green and I got it after seeing how awesome it was on The Polished Perfectionist. It doesn’t have any fancy name, and the name Metallic Green certainly is not showing its true prowess!

Check out the awesome bottle!!!!! The bottle cap is cat-shaped with this cute little tail! Peripera is actually a Korean brand, although I’ve never heard of it before. The bottle totally shows how duochromish this is, but check out the following pictures for the full effect! Oh and also, the logo imprint on the bottle is HOLOGRAPHIC! Omg all the effort they’ve made all just for the design of the bottle! ❤

Peripera Metallic Green is a frosty gold/olive/green/blue duochrome. I hate the frostiness of it because the brushstrokes show so easily and you really have to paint with caution so that the brushstrokes are more even and less obvious. If not because of the awesome duochrome I would have hated how frosty it is! This is two coats although if you’re careful you could really get away with just one coat, and the brushstrokes can kinda be reduced by Seche Vite but it can still be seen.

Oh by the way, the polish has this very nice scent! When you polish, you won’t be able to smell it but once it dries the nice perfume scent comes out! I wore this polish for a week and it is still there faintly! Freaking awesome stuff. I hated the brush though, because it is totally like the OPI Pro-Wide brush, which isn’t suitable for my tiny fingers at all ): Other than that, no complaints! I love this soooooo much!!!

Words can’t describe how awesome this polish is. Just look at the amount of photos I took. Hahaha.

Then the weirdest phenomenon happened when I was at Ion Orchard. I dunno what angles did the light came at and made Metallic Green look so freaking awesome!

It kinda looks like I’m wearing some sort of magnetic polish right?? SO PRETTY!! ❤

Zoya Faye (Sunshine Collection)

Zoya Faye is the first colour that I fell in love with from the Sunshine collection. I also own Tanzy and am hoping to get Rica and Apple in future!

Zoya Faye is a warm royal purple glass fleck glitter with duochrome gold/rose gold shimmer! It is so gorgeous in real life and has a very regal look to it. This was three coats. The first coat was pretty sheer but at the second coat it was nearly opaque. I just had to do three coats cos I’m like that. The formula is very smooth and buttery to apply, and I especially love the Zoya brushes cos their bristles are pretty short but they fan out easily due to its flexibility. It was very easy for me to paint a perfect curve at my cuticles (:

This picture is where you can see most of the purple and lesser of the duochrome gold shimmer!

Let me explain the term ‘duochrome’ to the people who don’t already know. A polish is considered a duochrome when you can see more than one colour when the light falls on the nails and changes when the light hits the nails at different angles. Multichromes are even more amazing. They usually flash at least four different colours and are VERY fascinating to look at!

I’ve already tried Tanzy but I need better swatches so maybe I’ll redo them in future! Can’t wait to order more polishes from Zoya when the Smoke and Mirrors collection becomes available!
