H & M Liberty Girl fimo NOTD

Why oh why are purple polishes so darn hard to photograph??? I had SUCH a hard time capturing the true colour of this gorgeous polish sent to me by Anita from KONADOmania in our swap. Please excuse the quality of the pics in this post as I had to play around with my camera settings. It kept capturing the colour as blue and not purple which really frustrated me! I must have taken at lease 2 dozen shots and the ones below are the ones closest to the colour in real life.

H & M Liberty Girl is a gorgeous pastel purple creme. I love purple polishes and this is no exception! Unfortunately the formula is quite thick which made application for me really tricky. I must add some thinner to this for next time and hopefully application will be easier! The 1st coat is quite streaky but a 2nd coat evens things out however I still had some bald spots. Below is 2 coats without top coat and it dries to a nice glossy finish.

I then used CM Nail Art striping polish in Pearl to draw 2 lines across the tips of each nail. In real life CM Nail Art striping polish in Pearl looks exactly like the name - it's a pearl polish off-white in colour with a pearl finish. However on top of Liberty Girl here, it appears silver which was unexpected and surprisingly I'm really liking it! I then placed some flowery fimo on a couple of fingers and topped it off with a coat of Nailene Acrylic Strong Topcoat.



Hope you like it!
