From The Vault: My Dark Valentine

I'm not really fond of this manicure and there is still a lot of time till Valentine's Day, but I decided to post this because it involves my new find which makes me greatly happy. A few days ago I discovered Rimmel London's metallic polishes. I don't know about the name of this collection, but all names have something to do with the word "Rock". I got 4 of them, and left out the silver, the gold and the bright pink (for which I might go back). I was about to leave this polish behind, too, because I'm not really interested in red polishes; but then I discovered that it was pretty opaque for a red, and I thought "Could this be?"
If you're familiar with konad, you probably know how hard it is to find a red that is visible on darker colors, such as black. Well, I'm happy to inform that I found my dream stamping red =)


Rimmel London Rock'n Red is really good for stamping, being visible on both light and dark colors. I stamped the lip stains from BM02 over black with Rock'n Red, and the images came out pretty crisp and clear.


Nails were uneven at the time I did this manicure, so only two fingers.
I don't know how recent this collection is, but if you can't find this polish, I think Jessica Cinderella Red shows up really well on black. Maybe you can try that one out if it's easier to find. =)

Bu manikürü fazla beğendiğim söylenemez, zaten daha Sevgililer Günü'ne de çok var. (Bence dünyanın en saçma özel günü ya, neyse =) Bu yazıyı yayınlamamdaki asıl amaç, yeni keşfettiğim bir ojeyi sizlerle paylaşmak istemem.
Birkaç gün önce Watson's mağazasında Rimmel'in yeni (?) ojelerini gördüm. Tamamen metalik renklerden oluşan bu koleksiyondan 4 oje aldım. Aslında şimdi göstereceğim ojeyi bırakacaktım çünkü kırmızı ojeler o kadar ilgi alanıma girmiyor, ama şişenin kapağını şöyle bir açınca ojenin kırmızıdan beklenmeyecek kadar opak olduğunu gördüm. Konad ile ilgilenenler bilir, konad'a uygun kırmızı oje bulmak zordur, açık renkler üzerinde çoğu kırmızı belli olur ama koyu renkler üzerinde belirgin olanına henüz rastlamamıştım ben ve arıyordum. Ve şu an gönül rahatlığıyla bulduğumu söyleyebilirim =)
Rimmel London Rock'n Red damgalamak için çok uygun, metalik yapıda olduğu için de hem açık, hem koyu renkler üzerinde çok belirgin. BM02 diskindeki dudak desenlerini siyah üzerine uyguladım, ve çok belirgin gözüktüler. Bu manikürü yaptığımda tırnaklarım biraz farklı boylardaydı, bu yüzden bu günlük sadece iki parmağımı gösteriyorum =)

  4. I've only tried stamping with red once and it was a big fail -_-. This looks so opaque and nice. I wonder if we'll get this collection in the US.

  6. I can't describe in words how much i love this manicure. It's so simple yet so beautiful <3.
    You should really do a post with your favorite stamping polishes because i love doing konad but all my regular polishes aren't opaque enough to use them to stamp so maybe you have some that i could buy in my country that work.
