Hrm, according to Google and spellcheck ‘vegetabile’ is not commonly used in English. But I don’t care. I always liked that word and it’s way more fitting than ‘floral’.
As usual with purples, all photos have been corrected to remove the overly blue tint.
Here’s what I used:
- essie rock solid
- Rimmel 60 seconds 625 Sir, Yes Sir!
- LOOK by BIPA nail tattoo liner 11 gold
- LOOK by BIPA nail tattoo liner 13 silver
- essence gel-look top coat
- Seche Vite
First I applied two coats of rock solid, three of Sir, Yes Sir! and one of Seche Vite.
Sir, Yes Sir! is a rich plum crème, slightly muted and quite gorgeous. Some might consider this colour autumnal. It’s the kind of purple that suits me best, even though I adore vivid blue-toned shades, too. I’m not sure why I expected this to be a two-coater, it really needs three (or four thin) coats.
The first two coats were rather uneven with Sir, Yes Sir! The viscosity is a bit higher than average, but the polish levelled well and wasn’t prone to pooling or dragging. The application was effortless and easy, aided by the flat brush with a rounded tip.
Overall: definitely recommended, just remember that the opacity is not as great as I had hoped.
Here’s Sir, Yes Sir! in two coats without top coat:
And here’s Sir, Yes Sir! in three coats with Seche Vite:
I then decided to add some leaves to my nails using the golden liner. I one of my usual ‘not knowing when to stop’ moments I added some golden dots near the cuticles and then decided that I hated them. So I changed them to squiggly grass/root/branch things and added some silver accents. Since I had wibbled for a while over how to fix the dot situation I first added a coat of essence gel-like and then one of Seche Vite.
Christ on a bike, is it hot. Me no likey. I may have to migrate north if that’s how it’s gonna be from now on.
