Long time, no blog, huh? I have to admit that inbetween sorting out the notebook/connection issues (I finally have both), traveling back to my parents place and getting ready for Christmas, there wasn't so much time to blog!
I hope though that you all had a wonderful Christmas with your families and loved ones and that you 're getting ready for New Year's!
So, this will be a short post, just to share with you my recent obsession: gunmetal nails!
At this point, I should probably admit that I 'm a huge fan of shimmery and metallic nail polish in general, even though my collection mainly consists of cremes.
I should also add that I 've been looking for a steely grey shade in absolute ages - thankfully Illamasqua's Snap came into my life and ended that quest:
The Illamasqua website describes this as a shimmery pewter colour. To me, it's a gunmetal grey (can appear blue-ish under different lighting), that is more on the metallic side, than just the average shimmer. It's consistency is really thick and reminds me of enamel paint, something that I personally love, since it allows it to go opaque with the first coat. I added a second coat as well as a top coat and it lasted about 4-5 days, before it started to chip.
All in all, I 'm very happy with my first Illamasqua nail polish experience and can't wait to try out the second one I ordered... it's the golden one! :)
Have you ever tried a metallic finish nail polish?
And, do you have any other gunmetal grey recommendations for me? :)
