Aqua Fantasy

Another post from the vault, and probably the last one from the series "omg were my nails really THAT long?!" :) The pictures were taken this January, and since them I keep my nails half the length you see below :) I just figured out how to cut them quickly and easily - with the tips for false nail. Yeah, I'm a monster, I know :P The shade I am showing below - Avon Aqua Fantasy - looks great even on my long nails, at least this is my opinion :) 

Avon Aqua Fantasy

Aqua Fantasy is a mint/turquoise shade with silver nanoshimmer, almost not visible but creating a slight pearly effect. Application was easy-peasy, 2 quick coats and you are done. Dries quite well.

My question has been if Aqua Fantasy is a nice polish to have or just one of many turquoise shades out there... Well, even if it's not extremely unique, the silver nanoshimmer and the glossy finish make it more voluminous. At least that is special!

How not to apply a stamping pattern over such a pretty base colour? I added the floral tips using BM-318 plate and American Apparel Peacock as a stamping polish (great 1-coater!).

Fuf, finally, 9 out of my 9 Avon polishes are swatched and published. In some posts I'll show all 9 together, and it's gonna be my first and biggest monobrand post :)

  1. I love the stamping on your tips! I think that only looks good on square long nails :)

    1. Thanks!! Well, it's very conditionally "on the tips", but yea, you are right, it would look weird on short nails I think.. :)

    1. I know why you were happy, it's a really nice polish! :)
      About cutting... hmmm.. I'm not sure how to show it in a blog post. I just bought a cutter for false nails, smth like this: http://www.shopix24.com/false-nails-tips-clipper-cutter-3-ways-silver.html
      and now I cut my nails within minutes. BUT my nails grow very quick and they are thick.

    2. Does it cut square shape? My nails are not that thick, if I use a standard nail cutter it makes the sides peel-off. Not sure about this one. Lately I just file down without cutting at all, but they are growing quick, too, so I have to file basically twice per week!

    3. I had the same problem with standard nail cutters (tried many of those!!), my nails were peeling, the edges chipping etc.. And I just hate filing my nails with any kinds of files :{ The false nail cutters cut a straight line, and they do it in miliseconds - I really like that! Besides, I got mine from a euro shop for 2 or 3EUR, so you can give it a try because it's a cheap thing :)
