John Russo "Deep Blue Sea"


Hello lovelies!

A while back, I won a giveaway at SassyShelly.com and I won the prize pack from OverallBeauty.com! There were two nail polishes. The first one from Pretty Serious, called "Viscous Vampire", which I showed you HERE

Now let's look at the other one, John Russo "Deep Blue Sea":



Deep Blue Sea is a fantastic blue with a subtle shimmer and to top it off, it's a one-coater! Yes folks, this intense result was obtained with only one coat. I am astonished as well! 

I wanted to do some nail art and practice my one-stroke technique. I decided to try to create some half-moons with white acrylic paint:



It ended up looking a bit like clouds. I'm not super satisfied with the result, but it is a classy manicure!  I love this blue <3

  1. Looks like you're getting the hang of the one stroke technique. Mine always turn out a muddles mess. That blue is simply gorgeous, so much depth and shine!

    1. Oh thank you! Yes, I find it hard too.. It also really depends on the polish, paint and brush, I must say!
