Fashion Playground – Essie
Top Coat – O.P.I
(Crystals from a craft store)
I did a quick review of Fashion Playground on my Collective Haul.
Mint Candy Apple is one of my favourite colours as well as a cult favourite. So when this polish came out, I grabbed it straight away. From memory this is apart of the Spring 2014 Collection. It has white shimmer and it is significantly more sheer than Mint Candy Apple. It needs a good 4 coats for it to get to full opacity which is a bummer. The colour itself is slightly different with Fashion Playground being on the more green toned while Mint Candy Apple is more blue toned.
As mentioned above, this manicure took 4 coats to become fully opaque and even then it would be streaky. Keep that in mind when purchasing this polish. The gems were added by putting some top coat on where you want the crystal to be, then placing the gem on top. Finish with a layer of top coat to secure everything in place and give the manicure some shine. The gems were added for some holiday bling although I doubt it’ll last until then.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
