Illamasqua Viridian ombre + a total disaster

Here it is in all its hideousness. No point in tarting it up.

And how the nightmare was wrought.
It was NOT a good idea to franken with the myface polish because it was thick and streaky on its own so why did I think it would make a good base for adding Viridian? Because I'm a cheapskate, that's why. Thought I could use it for good. Who am I? Superman?

So - DON'T use rubbish polishes for frankens.
DON'T neglect the thorough blending of the 2 shades.
DON'T persist with it when it's obvious from the first nail that it's no ruddy good.

Such a shame as the Illamasqua is a lovely polish.

Two for just over a tenner from asos.  That's not a lot for such quality items. And I eff it up bigtime. Maybe I should try foils or something. Something FOOLPROOF for people like me who are fools. *grump grump*

Off to Boots to see if they have the new Barry M crackles in stock. And get a nail buffer.



  1. What's wrong with it? It's green and it's shiny and I like it. xxx

  2. Oooh I got the same deal from Asos :D too excited for them to arrive! xx

  3. I like it, it's green and metallic!
    The Illamasqua polishes are such a great bargain! :)
