Grandma had Fun Intended! :D

Hey girls! I am so sorry for the lack of post because I have been really busy that I am dead tired when I reach back home so it’s just shower and sleep immediately! Tonight’s post will be about last Thursday when I spent a day of Fun Intended with my maternal grandma. Nothing much. Just spent the entire day doing a little manicure for her. (:

I had brought along 3 different nail polishes for her to choose from. One bright pink, one purple and Jindie Nails Fun Intended. My grandma is coming 87 years old, and she chose “Fun Intended”. I guess when dementia hit her, she started behaving like a young girl again, choosing loud colours. Well, being a sensible granddaughter, Fun Intended was indeed too loud for an old lady, but that does not mean she can’t have it on her nails. Hence, I used OPI’s Planks alot as the main colour. It’s a light pastel purple which looks pretty decent on an old lady’s hand (: Added some snowflakes to brighten her nails up too. Then, I used “Fun Intended” as a contrast colour on the 4th finger for an accent nail (: And the results:

Tada! Pretty sweet right? Fun Intended is a really funky polish to play around with. A bright pastel neon pink crelly filled with a mix of neon orange, neon pink, metallic magenta, metallic orange, metallic pink, metallic silver and tiny white hex, short bars, dots and stars! Not forgetting my favourite, neon pink butterflies!! I used a total of 3 coats on my own hands and my grandma’s 4th finger for it to reach full opacity. The 3 layers I used a rather thin because due to my lack of practice, thin layers can actually help prevent the final touch to look blotchy, especially when there is so much glitter goodness in the bottle.

My final results was a little blotchy because while trying to fish out for the butterflies and star, I ended up having too much polish on the brush and hence I had a thick layer on 1 or 2 of my fingers. So thin layers are important. You can also use a toothpick to stir the bottle first to fish for the bigger glitters (: I used Sally Hansen’s Top coat and it did help to smooth out the surface.

Jindie Nail’s Princess Consuela Bananahammock

Hello! So this is my swatch of Jindie Nail’s Princess Consuela Bananahammock! I took the pictures in white light of my bedroom.

Princess Consuela Bananahammock is from the series ‘Friends’ when Phobe changed her name to this hilarious name! It is a bright yellow crelly (me likey!) with a whole lot of small matte satin red, neon pink, orange hex glitter, medium neon orange and neon dark orange hex glitter and matte red tiny star glitters. I used 3 coats for this polish before it was fully opaque.

The hex glitters, both small and medium, weren’t that difficult for me to fish them out. To prevent my nails from looking too bulky with overload of glitters, I tried to make the first 2 layers as clear of huge glitters as I could. For the 3rd layer, I made the bottle do headstands so that I can fish out the bigger glitters and hence the results. Hexes aren’t difficult to fish, it is the stars that are difficult. I only managed to get one on my left thumb. LOL!
