Pupa goodies


I can`t get enough of crackle effect polishes!! When i first saw pictures of Pupa releasing some as well, my eye immediatly fell on this combination. Purple crackle over a white bc....I was lucky enough finding it on a sale during my last shopping-spree in Amsterdam. Pupa isn`t being sold in many shops in NL and buying it online, I think is just expensive cause the "shipping"  costs would only add to it. So I did a little happy dance in the shop with the discount ;)

Hmm I didn`t wait long enough for the bc to dry as you can see on my middle finger. The crackle effect makes it look like I`ve got a small gap in my nail hehe. I don't consider this a white bc either, it's just an extreme glittery silver, but I love the combination of the 2!! It was all just like I'd expected. I love the quality of Pupa polishes, yes the bottles are tiny and quite expensive for what you get, but it's worth the money to me. I love this!!! next time I use it, I'll add a nice shiney tc so I can enjoy it longer :)


Today I was visiting my friend, and there is indeed a drugstore in her town that sells Pupa...I just had to take a quick peek ;) Luckily the big signs at the door saying they had a sale on all products for 20% discount lured me even more!! I automatically head to the Pupa stand and whalhallaaaa...but I couldn`t find anything I desperatly "needed" to purchase. Already walking towards the door when a small stand next to it caught my eye again...sweet butterfly boxes, filled with 2 eye shadow colors and 2 lip gloss colors. Sucker I am for pinks and purples I grabbed this cute box, which eventually costed 7,95euros...which is an okay price :) Look at the packaging, isn't it just cute!!

How is Pupa? They sell them here but I have never really umm trusted it? I don't mean to sound bad but the packaging (although very cute) looks a bit childish sometimes.

But how is it quality wise? I would love to know! (^^)

It's great quality!! Eyeshadows are always very pigmented. I'm a sucker for their "backed" eyeshadows, my favorite is a black/purple glittery one which was sold in Xmas 2009 which I still use. And their polishes are just great as well :) I was thinking of buying one of their foundations soon, casue they have nice pale colors as well which suit me more.

I started out playing a Nelf warrior, played her about 4 years and then went death knight after the expansion. Cause we went to Blizz in Paris and seeing it there as well, really changed my mind about the toons. I did play arms and furry with the warr for a bit, but actually went protection and as well witht the dk I`m a tank atm :)

OK, M. I'm getting the hang of Konad. (thanks for the help!) But my crackle isn't crackling. Is the key thin or thick? I assume one layer only, but my Katy Perry just goes in lines, not cracks. As usual, your nails look great!

Martje said...

Hey sweety! I can`t tell you thick or thin...you need the right amount ;) Somewhere in the middle and work fast, don`t try to apply it to smooth. Cause crackle polishes dry fast and if the layer is indeed to thick cohession will play up more and you`ll get lines only...so perhaps you were trying your best too much :) Just swing it on a bit and let the crackle do the work!
