Manicure Monday: Lioele Lavender9:00 AM
Hey guys! For today's manicure I wanted to share with you a polish that was a totally unexpected love for me. It all started a few weeks ago when I was preparing for my panel at Kcon. They had asked me to share a quick tutorial so I thought an ombre nail how-to would be fairly easy and informative. Unfortunately the tutorial was scrapped but fortunately for me, my ombre mani for the day started with this newly discovered Lioele Lavender polish.
I couldn't wait too long to apply it again, just so I could show you how awesome this shade is!
Here I used CND Stickey Base for my base coat and 2 coats (2! And I'm a serial 3-coater!) of Lioele 37 Lavender with Seche Vite on top to give it that super glossy finish that I love.
Overall I've been very consistently happy with the quality of Lioele polishes, from the smoothness of the texture to the flat-wand brush design. Unlike many other companies that use a flat wand, Lioele's brush edge is not curved which I find quite easy to maneuver for really crisp cuticle edges. The formula of this particular offering is nice and opaque in 2 coats and it was easy to control during application. Can I also just say that creme finish pastels are just so rewarding to wear? It looks very clean and you can really appreciate nuances of color.
