Hi Everyone

Hope you all had a great weekend. I worked (at my full time job) but also but managed to get my 3 posts sorted and scheduled for this week. So a pretty productive weekend.

Today i am excited to share with you my Manicure Monday look at it features one of my favourite top coats i’ve ever used.

Hope you enjoy

First i prepped my nail and cleaned it with nail polish remover.Β I let it dry for a couple minutes. I then applied 1 coat, yes only 1 coat is needed of the Essence Colour Boost High Pigment nail polish in the colour (10) Instant Adventure.

Instant Adventure is a dark purple, its so dark it can look black once on the nails. The formula is thick but perfect for only 1 coat and its easy to work with. Its super shiny and has a very smooth finish. I let that dry for about 10 minutes before i applied the glitter top coat

I recently bought the (34) Glamaxy Far Far Away top coat nail polish from Dis-Chem. I have tried this top coat on both lighter and darker nail polish colours and it definitely pops better on the darker colours.

Galaxy is a top coat filled with multi-colour glitter – also described as cellophone – particles to create a space look. The only colours i saw in this colour was yellow ,orange and green.

I applied this 10 minutes after the Colour. I only applied 1 generous coat. You can also top this with a clear top coat if you wanted to but i didn’t with mine. Its become one of my favourite top coats that i own. I’ve worn it twice in a row now when doing my nails. How beautiful is this combination!

Colour Boost – sells for R 39.95
Glamaxy – sells for R 44.95

Both Essence nail polishes can be found at Dis-Chem and Clicks stores
