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!! ❤
These are some of the responses that came from my friends because of my most crazy nails to date! Hahaha!
Milani Gold is a clear polish suspended with hexagonal gold glitter that are about 1mm in diameter each. Pardon my ring finger, I didn’t adjust the glitter properly at the tips 😦 It’s actually not that obvious in real life, because all the attention is taken away by the shine from the glitter! The tough part about using this polish is definitely the arranging of the glitter. You probably have to spam a bit so that they can cover every spot of your nail. To do it is very tedious, but I can assure you that the result is well worth it!!
Photo spam ahead!
Under my table light
The blurred photos are there to show you how crazily shiny it is! My nails are so hard from the glitter that they feel like gel nails. Try as I might, I can’t bend any of my nails! That’s seriously some cool shit going on 😛
We need a video here, don’t we?
Managed to take photos and videos in the sunlight this time round cos the weather is CRAZY HOT these few days ): I hope you like the crazy glitter nails but I’m guessing that it’s gonna be a BITCH to remove!! Maybe I’ll do a post on how to remove glitter polishes next 😀
I’m a big fan of Harry Potter and the seven books. To mark the end of the movie franchise, I just had to do a Harry Potter manicure to get myself hyped up. Anyway the movie was freaking awesome! I love it so much and was so happy to watch it but also very sad that it is over for real. It’s like a part of me is gone cos it all ends here ):
What I used (L-R):
MAC Creme Shirelle
Orly Liquid Vinyl
Essie Going Incognito
Tape (not shown)
The Face Shop Nail Art Pen in Silver (not shown)
Slytherin flag colours on my left hand, with the Deathly Hallows symbol on my thumb.
Gryffindor flag colours on my right hand, and also the Deathly Hallows symbol on my thumb.
Now you know why I did swatches with my right hand, cos Creme Shirelle was on my right hand and Going Incognito was on the left! Hahahaha. I painted them the night before so that they had ample time to dry to the core, and the following day I cut up small squares of tape and taped off 2 corners on each nail to do this checkered pattern.
For the thumbs, I painted them black and drew the Deathly Hallows symbol with The Face Shop Nail Art Pen.
I can has the Resurrection Stone on my thumbs! It kinda looks like my primary school school crest right??? LOL
Hahaha see, the same shapes are used!! Lol!
It’s gonna truly end when I remove this manicure and do the next one ):
