NOTD Beetle Juice and China Glaze

Today is the end of our 21 day nail challenge but after spotting Make up Savvys 15 day nail challenge we’ve decided to extend it till tomorrow as we both wanted to try tomorrows theme (film inspired).

Today’s nails are metallic. I kept the simple and did my favourite type of manicure a plain accent nail. 

I used Nail Envy Maintenance (my favourite base coat ever and the best in mu opinion, I read somewhere a while ago after using the original nail envy to switch the the maintenance version.) The colours I choose were China Glaze Coconut Kiss purchased from eBay ages ago and Models Own Beetle Juice Purple Blue purchased from the models own website. They are also available in boots.. 

Coconut Kiss is a gorgeous metallic purple. As with all China Glaze polishes it is a gorgeous finish and perfect in two coats.

Purple Blye is a metallic purpley brown blue colour and looks different in different lights. This polish I had an issue with. I bought it at Christmas time and have used it once since buying it and it has gone very gloopy and thick already. I’m not sure if this is just due to the consistency of beetle juice nail varnishes or all models own ones do this. It turns different colours in different lights and seems to have a fine glitter imbedded in it.

I really like the contrast between these two colours and how they go together. Coconut kiss is a colour I need to use more I really love the colour it comes out on the nails.

Have you enjoyed are NOTDs over the past three weeks? I’m going to miss having an excuse to paint my nails so much. Though I have been bad this week and bit all my nails off. I’m so annoyed at myself. I’ve not bitten them in over a year now and this week for some reason I’ve gradually bit them all down to stubs :(.

Love M

    I love those colours! I will miss the challenge too but it'll give me a chance to cut my nails and grow them properly, they're breaking like it's going out of fashion 🙁

      I think that's why mine have all broke from painting them too much!! x

    Coconut Kiss looks so pretty. As do your other polishes, but I really like this one.Mom Fitness Journal | Beauty and Fashion in Seattle | Cheap Makeup Reviews
