Firstly I’d like to say sorry to those who are sick of me waffling on about polish, I promise my next few posts will be about actual makeup. I’ve just been on a bit of a polish kick lately as I’m still trying to grow my nails so I have to paint them every two days to stop me chewing. Yes I am disgusting and bite my nails. I never claimed to be ladylike.
I have been craving Fortune Teller since it came out but was never able to get my grubby little mitts on a bottle. If you haven’t seen it, or haven’t seen it matte Google Scrangie China Glaze (I covet her nails!) I read somewhere that you could use Gosh Rainbow flakies to create a dupe. I don’t remember where I saw this so if it was your blog sorry! Just comment below and I will edit the post to give you full credit for the idea. So here is my attempt using a random black polish (think it was Collection 2000), Gosh Rainbow and Essie Matte About You. I show it here without the matte top coat first then in all its mattified lusciousness.
Now I don’t have the actual fortune Teller to compare it to but from the photos I’d say that’s a pretty darn good dupe! Rainbow does flash iridescent yellow in certain lights, I don’t know if FT does that but I like it anyway. The matte top coat takes a special looking mani to new ethereal looking heights. Come Autumn I will probably be wearing this combo ever day. In fact I’m considering buying another bottle of Rainbow just in case I run out. Is that weird? I know some of you fellow polish junkies out there will understand.
So anyone out there have the actual Fortune Teller? How does this combination compare? I think I probably put a touch too much glitter on and I *think* the chunks are bigger here. Thoughts? Comments? Opinions?
*P.S. I just wanted to quickly say thanks to everyone following my blog. It really means a lot to me! I’ve almost hit 30 :-D As I’ve said when I hit 50 I will be doing a giveaway so fingers crossed we get there soon so we can have some giveaway fun xxx
