Nailing it : Smokey Brown + Molten Lava

I recently got a few new Elf brushes and couldn't resist getting a new nail varnish. I have a serious problem, I'm admitting I need help.



This is number 12 "smokey brown" by Elf which you can buy here. I don't normally like browns but I thought I'd give it a try and I actually really liked this colour, it was really shiny. In two coats it gives you the finish you can see above.

The tips started to chip after about two days and I was going to take it off but then I decided to paint the tips. My brother's girlfriend gave me this for christmas;

 I don't know the brand 'Rococo'... Perhaps worth a google.



I very rarely do "extra" things to my nails but I really like this, and had the extra bonus of meaning I didn't have to take my nail varnish off :)
