IsaDora Graffiti Nails!

First I tried Barry M's Instant Nail Effects and yesterday I was cajoled by my sister into trying the IsaDora Graffiti Nail varnishes!  They have them in so many colours and at €7.50 each, we decided to get one each.  I've been wanting a white one for yonks and so that was the first choice.  The second choice was a bit harder but we settled on 805 Spraycan blue.  It's an amazing navy/electric blue colour and we thought it would look gorgeous over a pink base.

What I decided to do is to use 5 different nail varnishes on both hands and show what the two Graffiti Nail varnishes would look like over the top of them.  Starting from the thumb and working towards the baby finger, we have Rimmel's Pop Rose, Sephora's Curacao, Barry M's Dusky Mauve, China Glaze's Cheers to You and Barry M's Turquoise.

It has a wide brush like the Rimmel Pro nail varnishes and you know how much I love these brushes.  This makes applying the nail varnish so much easier than the Barry M Instant Nail Effects.  It has a thinner formulation than the Barry M one which means it's so much easier to get an even coat.

Above is the IsaDora Graffiti Nails in the colour 802 White Art with and without flash.  I love it over the pink, the silver and the turquoise.

Above is the IsaDora Graffiti Nails in the colour 805 Spraycan Blue without and wish flash.  It's gorgeous over the pink, silver and turquoise and Sephora's curacao on my index finger.  I don't think Dusky Mauve was a good colour to mess around with here, I should've used a brighter colour.

If I had to pick just one out of the white and blue Graffiti nail, I think I'd pick the blue one.  It's so different and it makes me happy, I don't know why!  I love how if you look at the same nail on both hands, the top coat makes the base coat look so different.  At one point I had to look at my index finger properly after I'd applied the Graffiti Nails because I thought I'd painted them with different base coats!

I would most heartily recommend these and suggest taking a look at the different shades :)  It's great that we now have the choice of more than just a black crackle nail varnish!
