Happy Holiday Ladies!
Even if my blog is really on the back burner at the moment, I couldn't resist showing my christmas manicure.
This is A England Perceval, a glowing red shimmer. This is a beautiful, true red with a hint of darkening at the edges to really bring that glow out. The color pops at you from a distance, but not in your face, just elegantly red.
To compare it to other red shimmers I showed, it is not as brown as Illamasqua Viridian and not as bright and orange hinted as China Glace Red Stallion.
(and please excuse my even lesser skills in photography way back then. Hrrm, something has changed for the better at least.. )
It behaves beautifully too, almost opaque in one coat, I used two over usual Lumos base coat, Seche Vite as top coat. Unfortunately it chipped badly within a couple of hours.
I will not put the blame for the chipping on A England without another go at it though, as my nails are in such a bad shape right now, weak and splitting as there were no tomorrow.
I guess it is the Blog God punishing me for not updating and posting regularly :-p
