Koh - Glamourous Purple

Hey guys! Hope everyone's doing well.. Today I wanted to show you a lovely nail polish by Koh and I also wanted to tell you how I paint my nails, because I've been getting a lot of questions about that :-).

You're looking at Glamourous Purple, a lovely duochrome. This is 2 coats over 1 coat Smokey Violet (also by Koh). The formula of these polishes weren't too great, but the colors are really nice. I think this mani kinda looks like a less saturated version of Nubar's Purple Beach!

Second, how do I apply my nail polish? Well, it's nothing special really. I do have several ground rules:

  • good lighting
  • hands resting on the desk
  • enough polish on the brush to cover the whole nail at once
  • start in the center a little bit above the cuticle push it towards the cuticle and then straight up - then the same for the sides, starting from the middle.
  • jagged line around the cuticle? Please read Megan Chair's amazing tutorial on how to clean up!

I'm not saying this is the way it should be done, but it works really well for me :-). Hope you found this useful. Take care and till next time!
