Benecos Ice Ice, Baby! with Diamond Glitter Half Moons | Twinsie Tuesday

For the glitter placement prompt for Twinsie Tuesday, I have some diamond glitter half moons, and a review of a new (to me) polish brand.

I’ll start with the polish first. This pastel blue is Ice Ice, Baby! from benecos. There are eighteen colours to choose from, and 6 of those are new, as part of the Spring/Summer 2016 collection. They come in round bottles of 9ml for £6.95 each. I’m never so keen on the larger round lids for handles, but I have to say that I love the benecos brush itself. It’s lovely and slim – think old-school Chanel. [Complete aside – why did you change your brushes, Chanel?]

The benecos polishes are vegan and 5-free. You can buy them from Whole Foods, selected outlets and online from Ice Ice, Baby! is from the Spring/Summer 2016 collection of 6, complimentary colours. I’ll review 3 more in the coming days and weeks.

For the glitter placement, I have created some some diamond glitter half moons using glitter I got in a previous Ciaté advent calendar. It’s called Tinsel Trail and is a mini Ciaté polish bottle, full of blue and silver diamond glitters. Initially I tried to place the glitter horizontally in a line across the nail, but I was woeful and it was so crooked! So I removed that and tried something easier.

I ended up with a half moon design, which was not only easier, but also looked better (in my humble opinion).
