Untried Polish Challenge - Number 5 In Season

Today I bought a few polishes from the GOSH spring collection Tilted Blue and Venus, as well as a pretty mint from them called Miss Minty. For these nails I decided to use Venus from their spring collection as well as a white that saw the big polish remover accident of 2012 and is now just a bottle without a label. I am guessing it's Revlon from the shape of the bottle.

GOSH Venus and (Revlon? white)


Oops looks like I missed a little bit of polish on my thumb in clean up :p

I decided I wanted something a little retro, since I feel that the GOSH spring collection are really nice retro colours. Venus is a great polish, and is pretty opaque and goes on thick so I ended up only using two coats to get great coverage. I tried for the look of an old diner with the two colours of wallpaper by doing dots of Venus over the unnamed-untried white with silver micro-beads to separate the two and really bring out that old diner feel.

Also I may just be addicted to using micro bead >>;

I over all I am very happy with how it turned out and Venus is a fantastic colour and went on so nicely that I know I will be using it again.

    1. Yes, but that's not as horrible as it sounds :D I use my dotting tool to pick them up and it normally takes about two or three at a time and so it only took me a few minutes to get it done ^_^
