Boho Gold Nails

NAME: BOHO GOLD by Maybelline Color Show
I’m fairly picky about my gold and metallic colours, but when I saw the new Maybelline nail polishes in stores, I HAD to get them, I have 4 from this collection, and 2 from the new limited edition ones, including this one. In the bottle this looks very similar(dupe!) to Deborah Lippmann’s Swagga Like Us — these colours definitely look nicer in the bottles than on the nails, but whatever. It also looks similar to OPI’s Just Spotted A Lizard, but I think that one gives off more of a greener finish and it’s more opaque looking than this one. This one took about 4 coats to get to this opacity, and you can still see my nails underneath, which is rather annoying, as the formula is quite thin. It has a brassy look to it, which some may or may not enjoy. This isn’t anywhere near one of my “most worn” type of colours, but for an every once in a while thing, this is great and a much cheaper alternative to the more pricey high end polishes! This retails for around $4-5 in Canadian drugstores. The lasting power was also mediocre, or more than mediocre. It lasted for ~5 days without chipping, and that’s without a top coat. As you can see in this picture, which was taken after 4 days of wear, there was some wearing of the tips, which tends to happen with a few of my polishes(maybe it’s just my nails)bohogold


Holiday Nails

Hey guys, I know it’s a little late, but I did these during exams, they looked better in person, hard to capture the natural look through a lens, but it’s an idea for holiday nails! My nails definitely look better lately, but this is just to give you an idea of a potential look. Nude with coloured tips!

Polishes used

  • Nude Polish –> Gray Suede by Revlon (my favourite nude polish!)
  • Red tips –> Wine Not by Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure
  • Glitter –> Icebreaker by Nail Art Deco
  • Clear top coat –> Clear by Revlon (of course!)


2013 bring it!

Hey guys, I apologize GREATLY for lagging with the posts, BUT I have not forgotten about this blog! I have taken TONS AND TONS of photos of nail designs that I have done in the past couple months and I WILL be uploading them ASAP! I have all my programming photo editing things all sorted out! So be expecting more(I mean it!). Thank you for those of you who have stayed with me! I appreciate it sooo much! 🙂

Hope you enjoy the new designs!
