W7 Earthquake Silver- a Silver Crackle NOTD

when i was leaving UK, the only thing i was sad about was tht i will not be able to shop everything online in India, bt boy i cm here nd saw many eCommerce sites have started nd providing very good services. then a day came when i started reading beauty blogs( i felt so guilt .. y didnt i start it while i was there).. nd my life changed :D :D :D

nyway I recently got W7 Earthquake Silver which is a silver crackle from  Brandsfetish after reading about Anamika's haul from there . I wasnt sure about its quality bt it was so cheap there just INR 299/, so i thought to give it a try. Today i got it and i am quit impressed by its performance. See the pic:

Here's how it looks:
i was so surprised that nothing was mentioned about the color or the shade no..then i turn the bottle and saw a sticker on the cap , in which the shade name was mentioned
now i  was sure tht there is sm disaster when i opened it and applied it on my nail, all doubts clear.. the bristles are super soft and gentle and gives so nice strokes on the nails.
I really like this polish more than china glaze crackles. I actually applied this on the matte nails from matte about you post. Here is the pic with only base coats:
and after applying silver crackle:
i like the texture of cracks. 

Finally , what i like about this crackle:
1. cheaper thn other crackles
2.nice texture comes with a nice brush
3. gives an instant nail art effect.

What i don't' like:
the main problem with this is its availability. i was charged INR 50/- each for 2 different products came in same parcel and thts i found very weird. 

have u guyz tried silver crackle ??  and do you also got something from brandsfetish and charged for shipping separately for each product. plz share ur views... :)

Essie's Matte About You matte finisher

i am so excited while writing this post.. matte polishes are all over the web these dyaz.. and i really wanted to try some too so i started my search for matte colors and brands and i come across this fabulous matte finisher Matte About You by Essie. i took no time and ordered this one from 365gorgeous as it got such a nice reviews as compared to Orly's matte finisher. It costs me INR 546/-  but absolutely worth it. :) Here's the first look:
Application is very simple. Apply base coat thn 2 or 3 coats of desired polish finally apply matte about you in single thin coat. I first tried it with my creme based polishes:
(2 coats of each, and no top coat)
and after applying matte finisher, it looked like:
then wanted to try black, brown and grey also so
 (2 coats of each, no top coat)
i don't have a  cream grey so used this one 
after such fab results i went crazy :D :D and thought of trying some glitters also
(2 coats of polish, i coat of colored glitter polish, no top coat)
it dries very quickly.. i tried and tested this on my nails prior to this post to know chipping time and the life of matte effect. Typically it didnt chip for 4 days after that i took polish off with remover and at the beginning of third day the polish started look satin again( bt nt completely shiny ,a little shiny). for me I think that's ok because i generally lost interest in wht's-on-my-nail after a day itself. :D :D... and if the polish isn't getting chipped then u won't mind turning matte to satin.

It's a little pricey bt u won't mind if u cn get any matte color with this plus i really like wht it done to glitters.

hereby, I officially declare that i am in love with-->

hope u guyz like it .. hv u tried this or Orly's matte finisher.. plz share ur views :)
