Zoya Aurora, and a caviar mani

Zoya’s Aurora and all it’s sparkly goodness was meant to be my NYE mani. Which it was, but straight after it had dried I was on the floor with a torch scouring the house for one of the diamonds out of engagement ring. It was found thankfully! My poor mani suffered some tip wear though. Instead of removing it, I added another coat of Aurora.

 Caviar mani’s never really appealed to me. Maybe it was the price of Ciate’s caviar that put me off. My sister came across MUA nail constellations whilst out shopping, and surprised me with it. My niece picked the colour out. I opened the front door and she thrust it at me declaring I had a present. Love her to bits. My sister is really supportive of the blog, and knew I hadn’t tried a caviar mani. I got Gemini.

It’s like a rainbow having babies on that thumb. Me and my mom spent about 10 minutes trying to get the caviar open thanks to the tiny piece of plastic keeping it in. The rubber gloves were out, and everything. Turns out you pop the top off not screw it off. Apparently my sister spilt it everywhere yesterday ha ha.

This is the caviar without a topcoat. If I had a party or was going up town I would leave it without the topcoat, but I want to see how long it lasts with topcoat.

I promise it doesn’t have that ugly sheen to it, it’s just the camera. When I applied top coat the purple balls immediately started to lose colour. I applied basic topcoat then Seche vite on top.

On this hand a few of the purple balls held their colour. The bottom of the nail is missing a few, because when I was poking they came off I didn’t apply more as then there would another 2 layers of topcoat then another of SV and it wouldn’t have dried. At the moment I’m impressed with it. I will get back with the results of how long it lasted.

Products used: Mua nail constellations in Gemini, Sally Hansen double duty, Seche vite, and Zoya Aurora.

Thanks.
