... Modelista Flash Nails - On Location Berlin ...

Please bare with me for this post as I've been trying to figure out photoshop and have no idea what I'm doing. I need to simplify the way I've been doing my photos as I definitely have been wasting way too much time on it lately as the program I use is rather slow and likes to appear with errors. There needs to be a 1 button does all for impatient people like me!! Argh! Comments or Tips on Photoshop really appreciated!!!!!!! Thanks in advance!!

Modelista Flash Nails - On Location Berlin
Purchased from Target [clearance bin!] - $4.89 AUD

Apparently Modelista is an Australian brand but I've never crossed paths with it before but it's obviously been around a bit judging from the date on swatches I pulled from google. Couldn't seem to find anything on this particular colour though.

First things first - On Location Berlin is a black polish with a subtle blueish silver shimmer throughout. I've used 2 coats for this swatch but I'm sure 3 wouldn't harm it. It is surpringly quick drying and I didn't find any lumps or bumps and it definitely dries smooth without a top coat.
 Heads up - this one is a bit of a stinker. The smell hits you as soon as you open the bottle which I'm sure will be a bit off putting to some users. Also the polish itself is a tad runny. I had to make sure I had super steady hands for this as we all know that removing mistakes in dark polish colours is generally a pain in the butt!
 ** Final Verdict **
If you can see past the stench and have patience to apply [or remove!] then it's not a bad polish. The colour is beautiful with that shimmer surprise inside. I'm looking forward to getting my hands on some other colours from this line,

Oh and as promised here are some holiday vacation shots ... we only travelled to Victor Harbor which isn't too far away from home but hey - time away is good wherever you are!
Our temporary home ... which collapsed by half way due to strong winds! Whoops - either new poles or a new tent is needed before the next trip. The caravan park was really good with decent kids activities aswell.
It's the Southern Ocean - next stop Antartica!! Figure most of you never would have seen this particular ocean before.
And the pretty horse drawn tram with a carriage full of tourists that day - was choc-a-block as it was finally a cooler day after 3 days over 37'C [100'F]


  1. Victor Harbor is so lovely, lucky you got some warm days it would be cool down there now

  2. Yeah it's always nice down there. Couldn't believe the shocking weather though - you know it's hot when Victor is over 38'F with hot northerly winds :(

  3. I love the subtle shimmer!

    One thing I've found really useful in Photoshop is learning the keyboard shortcuts for things I use a lot. You can also use Actions to set up "one button that does it all", but I haven't gotten around to that yet. :P

    There's a tutorial here:

  4. I like it :) great pictures!


Thanks for the comments - they always make me feel loved :)
