Models Own Blue Moon + Dusty Mauve

See above
Boots expert  nail ridge filler
Misa Breakneck
Use of Mac iPhoto to edit major imperfections

2 Apply 1st coat of polish
3 Apply 2nd coat
4 Apply further coat (if necessary according to taste)
5 Wait 5 minutes before applying topcoat
6 Evaluate

Very pretty. Moon is a blue foil. Not unique but easy to apply and a typical foil
Mauve -  on the nail a soft grey but in the bottle more complex (see below)

Extension activity (sorry, I've lapsed into teacher-ese)
Very pretty but I messed up with a coupla dents'n'dings so the ol' Fairy Dust had to come to the rescue.

Voila. My most-used and rapidly thickening polish.
I am far too tight to buy a bottle of Seche Restore and I know not to thin it  (attempt to anyway) with remover so have you any budget tips for me, please?

Or I shall be very sad.......
I don't want my Fairy Dust to die! Help my Fairy Dust to live, I beg you!

Tatty bye


  1. I second your requests for a cheap nail polish restorer! Some of my oldies are like, decrepit. Nails Inc Brompton Place, for one :(

  2. Very nice :) I like the teacher style :) I have no idea how to help on the fairy dust issue. Tell us if you figure it out

  3. Ooh i like Blue Moon! Very pretty. The only budget restorer i've heard of is the remover trick so i'm afraid you might have to get a proper restorer :(

  4. Oh, f***.
    I like spending money on bright, shiny things (magpie) and baubles and not boring old paint-thinner.......*sulks*

  5. Using straight acetone should thin it just fine. That's what I use.

  6. Very pretty, your nails look lovely! I wish I'd got blue moon now! Next time :)
    As for restoring polish, I fail miserably, only advice I can say is be really cautious and don't just pour random remover in the bottle when over the sink...not good! I'm sure you have more common sense than I do though! :P

  7. Gemx: I've done it before (used remover), of course I have!!!! Am going to scour the garage for paint thinner.

  8. I use straight Acetone, I don't know what is so bad about it. Very nice colors by the way, I like the blue foil, a lot!

  9. Thanks, AP. Acetone it is.

  10. I have some Revlon and Mavala thinners - not sure how much I paid as I tended to stockpile the stuff in case I didn't see it again (before I bought salon sized bottles of Seche Restore). I'd be wary of using straight acetone - none of the thinners have pure acetone in, it seems to be butyl acetate, who knows what the difference is though!

  11. Your own report pгovides provеn
    necessaгy to myѕelf. It’ѕ extrеmеly helpful and you really are
    certaіnly quite experiencеd in thiѕ fіeld.
