Alessandro Go Magic! – Royal Crash

Alessandro Go Magic! - Royal Crash by Parokeets

Maestra found Alessandro Go Magic! – Royal Crash set on one of her journeys and she kindly picked up one for me. My set consists of: Crash Base (gold), Crash Coat (black crack polish) and Top Coat.

Comparison: OPI – Tease-y Does It vs. Collistar – Melanzana Glitter

Comparison: OPI Burlesque - Tease-y Does It vs. Collistar - Melanzana Glitter

Our reader Marta said that Tease-y Does It reminded her of another gorgeous polish Melanzana Glitter made by Collistar. Marta, thanks for your comment, I would never think of this comparison.

Surprisingly I loved Glow Up Already! more than Show It ...

p2 Gorgeous

p2 Gorgeous swatch by Parokeets

Without the doubt, p2 Gorgeous! is the winner of yesterdays contest. Gorgeous is really gorgeous violet polish, that applies beautifully. It has little bit thicker formula, so you can get away with only one layer … if you use a little bit more polish. As with other p2 polishes, brush is very easy to guide. I used 2 layers + ...
