Aqmore Aegen Blue

Ahh!! I am so late on doing this post!! I did my these before I chopped my nails off but forgot to post them because I forgot to move these photos into my laptop!!
Anyways, as I have mentioned in this post, Aqmore is a water base nail polish. Since I was my usual self, I did not read up on this product enough and only purchased a color polish without the special top coat or the cuticle oils and stuff from this company. After I found out that they do offer those items, I did want to go back and grab some but the price prevented me to do so. RM29.00 (~USD10) is not worth it for only 10ml of polish.
Upon application, I noticed that Aegen Blue was not a blue with shimmer. It was instead a pearl-y light blue. Not my favorite kind of finish. The photos are 3 coats of the polish. I saw somewhere on the internet that only ONE coat was required but it just did not cut it for me. At one coat, the polish was streaky and had a whole lot of bald spots. The second coat made it better but I prefer it most with 3 coats on.
You can still see the little streaks on the nails here. But it was bearable.
As promised, the polish did not have a strong chemical smell at all. the brush, though causes streakiness, was a breeze to use. I did not have to do any cleanup in these photos.
I did not keep this manicure on for long. I only gave all but one finger about a days wear. I was  just reaaaaaaaally eager to peel it off! Haha!
The removing was really fun! All I used was an orange stick and warm water. Once you pop a small side off you could just easily peel it off in one piece.
Remember I said I only removed all but one finger? Well, I wanted to see how well it lasted. It didn’t fare too well on me. It peeled back a little from the tips. It was definitely due to all the cleaning and scrubbing I did the 2 days I had it on. And the lack of top coat! I didn’t mind really because I was itching  for a new mani.

What do you think if water based polishes? Are you interested to grab a few to try on or are you happy using PVA under regular polishes?

Zalora.com.my : Part 2

Remember I was talking about the Free Second Day COD option at Zalora? Well, they did good on this. I received my package the second day before 10am. BEFORE 10AM! I am really really impressed!!

The packaging was super big for just one polish I was good and did not buy more 😀 but I didn’t mind as this was COD. They even included a RM10 cash voucher to be used on a food delivery site.

Here are a few shots of the polish I got!
(Please do ignore my stained nails!)
I got Aegen Blue which is a pastel blue polish with shimmer in it. I don’t know if i should call this a pastel blue shimmer or a frosty blue color :\
I did open this polish just for the fun of it and the usual chemical smell was not there! *win* It did seem a little watery though but we’ll see when I do use it. I will have a swatch of this posted up ASAP!
