Been on a mini-hiatus visiting family. I've been painting my nails in the meantime, but wow, have I been dealing with a LOT of breaks. I picked up some Duri Rejuvacote as something new to try, and strangely/luckily, it rang up as $3.95. Pretty sure it's supposed to run $8-$9? But I'm not complaining.
I did manage to get my hands on Pixi Lime Lustre. I've been hearing so much about what a unique shade this is, and that's definitely true. It's a nice pastel lime green with gold shimmer throughout. I did have a nightmarish time with application, however. The first two coats went on super streaky, and the third one to smooth it out seemed to be a bit overboard as far as opacity. I have the same type of trouble with Illamasqua, so this might just be a problem I have personally. I think I have a hypersensitivity to any possibility of lobster hands, and this one triggered my possibly unfounded concern maybe a little bit... Pastel greens can be hard to pull off for this reason.
Without further adieu, here's the pics!
