While browsing Nail Polish forum, I spotted Cantare nail polishes. Next time I went to DM store, no.132 went home with me.
Closest I could come up with color description is royal blue.
Packaging is not so great – you can not screw cap all the way. And polish has only 3 month expiration date.
This is creme shade with really dull finish. Top coat is a must.
Fanken polish mixes (home made polish mixing you see on Dr. Frankenpolish blog) are quite popular in our country right now.
I personally never mix different polishes together, since I don’t have time to study about different chemicals and their properties. Why do I think I should? Here are few of my reasons:
- you can get poisonous gas/chemicals from two or more harmless ingredients;
- not even polishes from the same collection necessarily have the same ingredients;
- I’m safety freak so I would have to invest in protective wear: gloves, mask, goggles, buy pipets for precise measuring … so expenses would ad up.
I usually add micas or mineral eyeshadows to polishes I want to spice up.
This time I applied Sweetscents Hope eyeshadow (mixed with Pretty Woman Vitamine Coctail basecoat) over Cantare 132 polish.
Larger detail picture:
Hope has the same effect on polish as it does on its own – it becomes almost silver in artificial lighting.
Cantare 132 bottle contains 6ml of polish and costs around 0,80 € in DM stores.
