NOTD: Going Indigo

Rimmel Blue My Mind is the perfect indigo polish. The consistency is between jelly and cream, it's opaque in two coats and dries very fast and glossy. The color is exactly like the description of Indigo, a cross between blue and purple.
My new camera is very good with problem colors. As you know, most cameras can't truly capture colors which are a cross between blue/green, blue/purple and red/pink. Most of the time, the pictures come out closer to the cooler one of those both colors. For example China Glaze Four Leaf Clover is a very bright Kelly green, but most pictures suggest it's a bright turquoise. The camera I'm using can capture the color of Four Leaf Clover perfectly, but it still fails to capture the true indigo. I think it's the most problematic shade to capture with a camera =) The color is tweaked a bit to resemble how it looks IRL.




The pattern is from disk bm16, and the stamping polish is Golden Rose Nail Art #107. That nail art polish is such an opaque, shiny, foily silver; never had a silver stamping polish that looks so mirror-like! It's amazing, if you can find this line, don't skip on the metallic shades. Other than silver there is a gold, bronze and a brown. They all work great with konad.

Rimmel Blue My Mind, jel ve krem arasında yapıya sahip bir oje. Rengi indigo, yani çivit mavisi. İki katta opak oldu ve çok çabuk kurudu.
Kameralar genellikle mavi/yeşil, mavi/mor, kırmızı/pembe arasındaki geçiş renklerini iyi yakalayamıyor. Bu renklerden soğuk olanına dönük çıkıyor resimlerde renkler. Benim kameram genellikle yeşilleri, mercan renklerini çok iyi yakalıyor ama bu renkte sınıfta kaldı =) Her kamera gibi maviye dönük çıktı resimlerde, ben de gerçek haline benzesin diye biraz oynadım rengiyle.
Desen bm16 diskinden, damga için Golden Rose Nail Art #107 ojesini kullandım. Kullandığım en ayna gibi metalik oje herhalde. İnanılmaz opak bir oje ve konad'la çok rahat kullanılır. Alix Avien de buna benzer bir oje çıkarmış, daha rastlamadım ama. Bu seriyi görürseniz, simli hariç bütün hepsiyle konad yapılıyor, özellikle metalik olanlarla. Bu hariç altın, bronz ve kahverengi var, ben hepsini denedim, konad ile çok uyumlular.

  8. I'mma check out those Golden Rose polishes you mentioned and also this beautiful Rimmel polish! I don't think I have anything like it.
    I love that when i visit your blog I can go out to the store and look for stuff instead of ordering them online.

  10. They sell Golden Rose here at every subway station! They're pretty cheap, too! About a dollar, a dollar fifty or something like that.

    I'll be checking them out as soon as possible! Maybe even this Friday

  22. Why, why Rimmel sends in Italy only boring colours, WHY?
    This one and the teal in your previous post look great :^/

    ReplyDelete
  23. thanks, everyone! =)
    @Başak aksine cok guzeller ama ben nail art degil konad icin kullaniyorum, o yuzden simlileri tavsiye etmedim =) su an icin buradaki en iyi simli nail art onlar, hatta mor olani normal fircayla tum tirnaga surmek lazim =)
    @Smaltoitaliano, these two weren't available until a while ago, I suppose they will be available there, too =) Other than these both, only colors I've seen of Rimmel here are lady-like colors =)

  24. I never managed to make a stamping out of foil nail polishes right. I'm not a big fan of konad already and this makes it worse. But you guys always make it so perfect that I always give it a second chance... is this my problem?? I really wanted to make a stamp right! Yours are just perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  25. @Akuma Kanji I've seen some of your konad designs, and they look pretty nice to me! not every foil polish work nicely, I suppose. this is a nail art polish, it's supposed to be opaque in one thin coat, so it works great with konad. =) you can try to find some nice metallic nail art pen and go from there, maybe?

    ReplyDelete
  26. That silver polish is the BOMB for stamping. Your photos are crisp with great coloring. I love that mani!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. @Kimberly thank you =) my cam can take really fine macro pics =) but on the downside, it makes my skin look too bright and unnatural =/ my dslr cam does a better job on this issue =)
