Max Factor Mini Nail Polish: Elegant Mauve (??)

So first we had Ivory which was actually a pale gold glitter, and now we have Elegant Mauve. Guess what? It's not mauve.

Review: Australis MegaLash Mascara (Electric Blue!)

I had a bit of cash to spare and wandered into Price Attack to get a new mascara. They didn't have either of the two that I like (one is Covergirl and one is Maybelline), but when I saw this baby I decided it was definitely worth $10ish to try a coloured mascara. I grabbed a plain black Australis as well, which I'll review later on. It's in the same family as this mascara (MegaLash).

Max Factor Mini Nail Polish: Ivory

I snagged 6 Max Factor minis from Kelly's blog sale :) the bottles are ridiculously adorable

First shade I tried is a neutral gold foil/microglitter polish with the odd name of Ivory. It required three (thin) coats for full opacity but you can easily wear this as a sparkly sheer. It dried really fast. I'm not a big gold person but I really liked how elegant and pretty this polish looked! I'm going to try layering it over some neutral cremes next, I don't really want to be applying 3 coats every time I use this polish or very soon the bottle will be empty!

Ivory? For serious?!

Teeny adora-bottle!

The brush was really easy to use, it was short but fairly wide and although not completely flat like CND brushes, it wasn't totally round either. Ivory dried quite smooth, but I used topcoat anyway.
