Quick Post with Alix Avien Golden Nails

I recently bought myself Alix Avien's 24K Gold Nails set. The set consists of two 5ml polishes, one black and one gold leaf topcoat.

I already owned Zoya Gilty, but did not use it, because you know, I might finish it and never get a spare bottle... Sigh, this thought only is killing me... :(

Anyway, I thought I should give this little guy a try... But instead of a black base, I used a turquoise, Maybelline Urban Turquoise, a lovely shade, in my opinion....




This maybelline is a one coater, totally opaque in one coat! But I'm afraid it is going to be stainer.... :(

After painting all my nails one coat of Urban Turquoise, I painted a thick coat of Depend Holographic Ocean Green on my pinkie...

Then I picked my golden leaf top coat and started painting my ring finger...

First impression, the formula is very watery. You cannot get enough leaf on the brush. So you start dabbing and placing the gold leaves... At this point, O was glad that the formula was watery, because as it dried, it did not streak...

You see two coats of gold leaves dabbed on my ring finger...






Well, it may not be the perfect polish, but it still looks nice and it is all you can get for 13TL...
