Purple Week - Jade Fascinio Violetta

Hi Goddesses

Hurrah, it's Friday !!  Wow that feels good :)  4 day weeks RULE !!

Ok, considering how much I wanted them, I have been ridiculously slack in getting the Jade holos up on the blog.  The honest reason is that I delayed wearing all the holos I bought this year til the summer arrived and I could photograph them in the sunshine.  Well, summer came and went in the blink of an eye in the UK, and never for more than 1 and a half days at a time, so all my glorious holos remain unworn.  Sorry, we're just going to have to photograph them in indoor light :(

I have been mightily impressed with the Jades so far.  They apply easily, they're vibrant and they have a beautiful holographic compostion.  This is the first time I've been disappointed, but I think I know why, so bear with.

At 2 coats this was glorious - beautifully scattered, delicate... but so was the colour.  It just didn't have the grapey depth I wanted from my purple, so I added a 3rd coat.  And that's why I think this mani went wrong.   

At 2 coats, this bent beautifully with the light.  At 3, it's got that horrible clunky bend the CG holos have - it looks fake and lacks finesse.

So, gorgeous polish, gorgeous about ooooh 20 minutes before I took this photos.  Oh man, you know what that means don't you?  I'll have to wear it AGAIN !!! Siiiiiigh .... such a chore :)

I bought all my Jades from

Enjoy xx
