Black holo japanese glitter POTD – and a new series! October 13, 2009

Hello again!

So, review first for those of you who don’t like looking at pedicure pics 😉

This polish was extremely sheer as well, so instead of using 4+ coats on my uneven toenails to get it somewhere near opaque and smooth, I just layered one coat of holo over a basic black creme. Drying time was OK, though, it didn’t take as long as expected.

So, on to the swatches:

If you don’t like ’em, don’t scroll further down than here!

Inside, artificial light, no flash. This is pretty much what it looks like outside on a cloudy day.

Theeere we go. Imagine this effect x3 and you know what happens when the sun hits my toes. This is also indoors, with flash.

Sorry I couldn’t get any sunlight photos, but I’m really busy with university now and….well, Kyoto University is the second oldest university in Japan and ranks Top 20 in every worldwide university ranking I have seen so far. Therefore, both students and teachers are extremely proud to be able to work and study here. Kinda like Yale or Cambridge or something like that, plus strong Japanese patriotism. Now imagine what they would do to a girl sitting in the entrance of one of the venerable institutes, painting her nails and taking photos of her naked feet… :/ Yes, exactly.

So probably I will only be able to post proper swatches and NOTDs like twice a week or so. There will be a new series, though, featuring funny or interesting things I discovered here. It’s starting right now! Hope you enjoy it!

This is from my Japanese lecture today. The teacher doesn’t speak english, only Japanese, so she draws little cartoons or uses gestures to explain new vocabulary. We had a lot of fun in this class^^ Can you guess what the Kanji (chinese characters) in the brackets mean?

    Good idea to swatch over black! Pretty glittery polish. How about a picture of you painting your nails at University!?
