Nina Ultra Pro - Purple-xing

So, this was supposed to be my new year's eve manicure. I applied this purple glitter to my nails two days ago and I don't know why I expected it to last until today. Well, I almost succeeded, but then I took an arrow to the knee... Ooops, sorry. I meant to say it chipped off due to heavy duty dish washing and that means my nails will be naked for new year's eve. No problem, it's just another 'normal' day for me. =)

Here's a photo of Purple-xing with 1 coat of top coat.

This polish is unbelieveable top coat thirsty. I think I'd need 4 or even more coats to get a completely smooth surface. It's definitely not for the gritty-surface-hating ladies, or for ones who wear stockings. I must add it's much warmer in real life. My camera tends to turn purples into blurples. It's also much prettier in real life. I just couldn't catch the glitter the way I see it with my own two eyes.

  3. I passed on this polish before, but I'm thinking that I should probably get it eventually! It looks very pretty.

  5. I know exactly what you mean, purple is my nemesis too when it comes to photographing it, always turns up more blue tha it should... Anyway, it looks awesome nontheless.
    Happy new year! xoxo

  6. Doing work around the house sure kills a manicure. It's such a pretty sparkly purple. Can't you just slap another coat on over the chips? Sometimes you get lucky & it works. Have a Happy New Year. Hope the next one is much better than the last.

  8. Aww prelep je! :) Škoda, da ti ni zdržal do novega leta.. No, moji so bili tudi goli in čisto na sveže postriženi na kratko. :( Torej, high five! :D

  10. Če se meni pokvari po dveh dneh preprosto nanesen eno plast bleščic in te vse zakrijejo, ampak če si pa perfekcionist pa bolj pogosto menjaš ;)

  11. It is beautiful, but it sounds like it needs too many coats for my patience. I mean, four layers of top coat? That's a bit too many for my likings. :)
    Happy new year.
