To days of inspiration, playing hooky, making something out of nothing
The need to express, to communicate
To going against the grain, going insane, going mad – RENT
So for Christmas the UK Indie creators got together and did a secret santa for each other. I was super lucky to get Georgia from Dragonglass Nails who made me some wonderful polishes inspired by the musical Rent.
I have nubbins for New Year and I was going to wait for a bit more growth before I got back to blogging but I decided that I wanted to share this beautiful polish more than I was feeling bad about the shortness of my nails. Embrace LA VIE BOHEME!
I will hopefully get around to swatching up the other polishes soon but I just had to get THIS ONE on my nails.
I am working on convincing Georgia to release this polish as I think other people NEED it in their collections and lives. In the mean time, why not head over to the Dragonglass shop and facebook page. Dragonglass is becoming known for its great colour combinations and it’s dense glitters which really are quite special, I’ll add some links to some of the other polishes I’ve used at the bottom of the post.
I used just one coat over Barrym Gelly Lychee. La Vie Boheme is a shimmery golden sheer base with flecks of cinnamon glitter and an array of metallic hexes. This reminds me of rich exotic luxuries – I love it and can’t wait to try it over other base colours and to build it up on its own. The formula on this was a breeze to work with and the brush was always loaded up with the right amount of everything. Although the base is shimmery it doesn’t obscure the glitter at all and just adds fizz to the nude base that I’ve used.
Yes I really am that pale – I am using my new lightbox lights which have daylight bulbs – it definitely makes a difference!! They are brighter, lighter and ermm hotter (sorry for the lack of poses today but I was distracted trying not to burn myself on the new lights). I’ll hopefully get some pictures of my new kit soon but it’s going to take some practice to figure out light placement to combat shadows and just get used to a new set up. Any tips from fellow light box users?
