NOTW-ish



So here is my mani at the moment Billie " Steel Blue " and a cute mini Mavala "Salerno".... I think. The " Blue steel is only 2 coats, I could easily get away with 1. This red/orange-y polish is a "jelly", and took 3 thick coats to get it to look like this... I am not a fan of sheers, but I had to but this cute tiny bottle, { it was only .75 cents..... }







I really wanted to try this brand, I have rarely seen it in stores... I know these colors clash horribly, I am just testing this productout..........

They're both great looking. I like a good steel color. The red/orange is yummy looking.

Loving Blue Steel!

Mavala is a common brand here in Sweden, if you have a chance i recommend their basecoat and their quickdrying topcoat. They're a great budget alternative.

I like both colors. Hadn't heard of the Billie brand. I have been reading about so many different polishes lately. It's nice to know about other polishes and how long they last.

I found that cute Maval mini at a shop in town and just wanted to try it, I look at the European beauty/nail blogs, and they are very pretty colors... however the one I picked is a very transparent "jelly", and it took 3 thick coats to get it like this.

The "Billie" brand of nail polish I found at the .99 cent store in my town, so far these polishes have been really great, I can get away with 1 coat sometimes. I hink I have like 10 to 15 off this brand,,,, I am planning on doing a few more manis w this brand...

I have them swatched on my super-awesome nail boards, They apply well, last a long, long time ( two weeks with barley any chips on MY TOES!!!!! ) and they do not have astron ng smell. It was a fluke that I found this brand.


I looked them up { Google} and so far they are only for sale through dollar store type shops.

I am always surprised and very happy when I buy a cheap "no name" polish and it works good for me.
