I'll kick you off with unexciting Australian pics of what I saw on my trip ... I didn't go anywhere overly exciting like a capital city but it was a free vacation with the family ...
Lazy ass kangaroos that were too busy sunbaking to get up to pose for a photo. I purposely made sure I had a kangaroo photo since the most common questions I'm asked about living in Australia is usually about snakes or spiders ... but after that it's about Kangaroos [No you don't keep them as pets but yes they do just roam the countryside and then put a giant dent in your car if they get in the way!!]
Now that I've gotten that out of the way ... Here's todays nails ...
Kink - Showgirl
Purchased from Coles $8.00 AUD
[on sale this week for $5!]
The Kink cosmetics are ONLY available at Coles Supermarkets but they always have a promotion on to buy 2 and get a 3rd free. While their nail range isn't overly huge some of their other cosmetic items look pretty cool. I also LOVE that it comes sealed in a bag! I know that testing cosmetics isn't allowed blah blah blah - but I'm sure we've all got a bottle of polish somewhere that you aren't 100% sure that it hasn't been used before.
I won't lie - I was disappointed with the first coat of "Showgirl". I originally put it straight into the "looks great in the bottle and awful on nails" category but it grew on me. I wouldn't consider it a favourite but it turned out a lot better after 3 coats then I thought it would originally.
While it's blue glitter on a blue base it's awfully sheer plus you don't get that many glitter particles sticking to the brush. I can still see my real nail under this polish so you really need a nude as a base. Actually the photo makes it look a lot better than it really is.
I don't "hate" this polish but I'm disappointed that it's not as vibrant or thick as the bottle makes it out to be. I'm hoping that this will be a great base polish for some stamping though *gets too it*
For the price though I can't complain too much - I've paid a lot more in the past for glitters less satisfying than this.
