New in: Make up store - Siw

Hejsa! :-)
Jeg var en tur i Make up store i dag for at se på deres holografiske lakker. Jeg synes at de er så smukke, men også ret dyre, 125,- :( Men endte alligevel med at købe Siw (<3), en blå holografisk lak. Den er så smuk. Så da jeg skulle til at betale, begyndte damen at fable om den fantastiske aqua base man skulle bruge til den, for så ville den holde længere. Jeg sagde dog at jeg ikke var interesseret, da jeg ikke gad at betale endnu 125,- for en lak. :P Derefter smuttede jeg i Matas og købte en Fix Base Coat fra Gosh. Jeg ved ikke endnu om den får det til at holde længere, da jeg ikke har den på, men jeg swatchede Siw uden Fix Base Coat, og med Fix Base Coat. Farven bliver mere pigmented med Fix Base Coat, og mere sådan en blå, end en lyseblå, og mere holografisk. Åh, det er svært at forklare. Men altså, den bliver i hvert fald flottere med Fix Base Coat. :-)
Håber I har haft en god dag. :-)
Har I også ferie, btw?

Hello! :-)
I went to a store called "Make Up Store" today, to look at their holographic polishes. They are so pretty, but expensive, around 24 dollars! But then I saw Siw and fell in love... and bought it..... <3 It's a blue holographic polish. When I was paying for it, the lady started to talk about the fantastic aqua base coat, she recommended me to buy. She said that the base coat made it last longer. I already knew that, but didn't want to pay another 24 dollars for a polish. One was enough. After that, I went to a local drugstore and bought a Fix Base Coat from Gosh. It's supposed to be used for holographic polishes. And it was cheaper, around 11-12 dollars. Then I swatched Siw with and without the Fix Base Coat. I don't know if it makes the polish last longer, but when you use the Base Coat it makes the color more pigmented, holographic and prettier. :-) 
I hope you had a good day! :-)

  1. 24 dollars for a polish!! That's a robbery! But we're sooo weak sometimes.

    It's gorgeous, though. Holos are said to need a special base coat, I'll take that into account when I buy one.

  3. @SM: Btw, what did you use to make the swatches? Where did you get those? E-bay?

  4. marox79: I used fake nails I bought from a local store, but I am sure that you can get some for really cheap on E-bay! :) Fake nails are great to use for swatches!
