Hey out there on a quiet Sunday night!
I have a simple swatch/work mani to show you today - Barielle's Misbehaving Mistress, from Fall 2008. I found this medium, taupe, with subtle, silver shimmer, gem-of-a-polish at Marshalls last week for $2.99... This is my first bottle of Barielle. I don't know where to buy these offline, anymore. Ulta use to be the only place I knew of, but they replaced them with Zoyas. Now its just transdesign.com... who is having a sale on their Barielle multi-packs, BTW.
Anyhow, the formula on this is really nice too; two coats, no issues.
I used Nina Ultra Pro's quick dry top coat for this mani for the first time. Just recently they changed their font, bottles and brushes. I like the new packaging but the new brushes are huge! Double barrelled, wide and soft. See the picture above? I don't know if people are going to like this....
This is just a preliminary review because I've only tried this top coat once. Nina's top coat does dry fast, 2 minutes to touch but I had some major shrinkage, noticeable at the tips after three hours. (I do wrap my tips). Shine was okay, but after 12 hours the shine started to fade.
Well, that's it for now, TTFN!
