Fashionista Nails in Fortune

Fortune is the second set of Fashionista Nails that Esther sent me to try. Rather than using a silver polish as a base for the decals, as I did last time, I decided to use a holographic polish, like Lacquered Lizard did, so I used GOSH Holographic. The results? Absolutely wonderful. I only took pictures of one hand this time, since the designs on each hand were similar enough that you'd have to inspect them closely to tell the difference.

*sigh* I am in love. Remember how I went crazy over the first set? Well, I like these even better. Yes, it's possible. I think this pattern goes particularly well over a holographic polish, though I'm sure it would look fantastic over gold, silver, or bronze as well - I may have to try an accent nail over Orly Luxe with one of the extra strips I have left. This time, I did a wear test, and these suckers lasted for four days, which is longer than my polish usually lasts on its own, and much longer than GOSH Holographic lasted on its own the last time I wore it. I don't have a picture because I'm stupid and forgot to take one, but after four days, one nail peeled most of the way off, and that was it. In fact, I think they would've lasted longer, but I inspected the edge of the decal that lifted up, and I appear to have not covered the edge completely with top coat. I suspect that my hot showers made them lift off, but to stay on for four days is nonetheless very impressive! I told my mom that she might have to get me another set of the Fortune decals for my birthday. She said maybe. :) 

Here's a new nail blog I discovered yesterday. They're almost to 100 followers - who wants to be the 100th? :)


Until next time!

  8. Oh. My. Gosh. These have got to be the funkiest nail design I've ever seen! Would you believe it - I've never tried decals before. :P I'd been thinking of doing some multi-coloured checkered design on my nails for a long time, but just didn't how to go about it. This seems to be the answer! :)

  9. I would definitely recommend trying these! For me, the learning curve for water decals was very small, and the payoff is definitely worth it. :)

    Thanks for the great review. These really do "POP" over a holo polish. Thanks for mentioning my blog too! So glad you love them as much as I do!
