Some Dazzling Polishes

June 20th, 2011

It’s been a while since my last post, sorry! I blame it on work, and an evil gum ache from hell (caused by one of my wisdom teeth). I didn’t have much motivation to do anything while my mouth was hurting 24/7, but now it’s fine again.

When I saw the blue and turquoise polishes from Isadora’s Ocean Drive collection I couldn’t resist. They look perfect for summer! This post is mainly about Dazzling Ocean. I keep confusing the names, I think this turquoise/aqua color should be named Acqua, and the blue one Ocean. But maybe that’s just me.

Bottle shot of Dazzling Ocean and Dazzling Acqua.

Both of the polishes seem to have a blue/purple flash in the bottles as you can see in the next photo, but it’s not very visible on the nails. I can see it in a certain angle in lamp light, but I only managed to capture one lousy photo of it in Acqua, which you can see at the end of this post.

I did the nails a little different this time, I applied my first coat of polish one evening while watching a movie, then the second coat the next morning while I was eating breakfast, and then another one. I didn’t apply a top coat. I don’t know if this is what caused the polish to bubble, as I did get some bubbling on a few nails. Fortunately it’s not that noticeable so I can live with that. What bothered me more was how sheer it was, but I do forgive it for being such a gorgeous and summery shade.

Here you can clearly see how sheer it looks.

With such a name I thought it would be fitting to splash some water on my nails =)

And then we have the other Dazzling polish, the blue Dazzling Acqua which adorn my toes. I’m not sure if this is quite as sheer as Dazzling Ocean, but I applied three coats here as well.

If there are any foot haters reading this..








You have been warned! =)

And here’s a crappy photo in poor indoor lighting, which was the only way for me to get the purple flash to show:
