Nail Pattern Boldness Inner Beauty Is For Amateurs swatches and review

Nail Pattern Boldness Inner Beauty Is For Amateurs is a very unique nail polish. It’s a red jelly stuffed with different kinds and sizes of shade-shifting shimmer. The texture is quite unusual – it goes on thick but very pliable, and the swatches show just one (!!) coat of NPB Inner Beauty Is For Amateurs. It dries quite gritty though, and you may need two coats of topcoat. Removal isn’t hard and it doesn’t stain. First off, let’s look at the bottle and all that shimmmmah….

More after the jump!

I even broke out my macro rings for this one since there’s so much going on…

Sadly, I only had the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri topcoat on hand, and it goes on quite thin and didn’t give me the glassy look I wanted.

The name “Inner Beauty Is For Amateurs” made me chuckle =)

Overall I liked how Nail Pattern Boldness Inner Beauty Is For Amateurs looks on the nail, I must try it again with some thicker topcoat)

Etude House Sweet Recipe Ice Cream Nails Apricot swatches and a jelly sandwich!

Etude House is a Korean makeup company, which has produced great nail polishes in the past, and this spring they presented a limited edition collection called Sweet Recipe full of cute food-related packaging. There were several nail polishes in it – both solid colors and glitters, all packed in “ice-cream cone” bottles. I have the cute and delicate Etude House Sweet Recipe Ice Cream Nails Apricot today to show you, so on to the swatches!

Etude House Sweet Recipe Ice Cream Nails Apricot is a sheer nude jelly with beige undertones, full of multicolored one-size glitter hexes. It’s buildable on its own or it can be used as a top coat or in glitter sandwiches. And that’s exactly what I did, pairing it with an equally sheer nude jelly, OPI Bubble Bath.

Both polishes apply equally well with no streaking or dragging. The glitter load is medium, you can easily vary it according to the desired effect. The swatches show one layer of Etude House Sweet Recipe Ice Cream Nails Apricot between two layers of OPI Bubble Bath.
