Nails: Brown Animal Print

Another attempt at nail art, think I am getting better but not quite there. Think I might get a machine at some point. I like this one so much more than the bright pink!

This is some kind of animal print done with:
-ELF - Smokey Brown Polish as the base
-ELF - Chocolate as the stripes

What do you think?

Swatch: ELF - Dark Navy


Generally ELF's nail polish is great, this navy is more black / blue (wish my hair would go that colour!) but I do like that. It doesn't dry as shiny as the other colours I have tried, not matte but not shiny either. Also this colour seemed to chip so easier than the other shades I have tried. Chipped within one day which isn't so good!

Two days of wear with two coats, going to try again at wearing this nail polish but with clear coat on top to seal it see if it lasts any longer.

*edit* I tried this polish with a base and a top coat and this did help the colour stay on. Lasted two days chip free that way which was better but not as good as the other shades I have by the same company.

Anyone else try this colour?

Dupe Alert! Lippmann - Bad Romance

I saw this in Superdrug and I got very curious as to if this is a dupe of Deborah Lippmann's Bad Romance

Its Revlon and looks like a very close dupe to me, apparently its a new shade for A/W 2011

I wanted this to wear during my wedding in November and now its mine and it was just £6.49 rather than the much more expensive £14

Nails: Fluorescent Animal Print

As you can tell I wasnt keen on the pink. Although I think with the black it looks better, my first time doing anything like that and this was done by my left hand (right handed) so I think I might need to practice some more! Nice though I think!

Swatch: ELF - Fluorescent Pink

NOTD - ELF's Fluorescent Pink
(£1.50 - 10ml)

Completly not my colour but for free I can't complain! I think I won't wear it like in the above picture but might go nice with some sort of nail art against a black base. Very barbie pink though, just how I remember their heels were as a kid lol!
