In todays post I am trying out the aurora supreme pigment from Whats Up Nails. So I didn’t technically buy this. If you placed an order within a certain time period, you got this pigment for free with your order. Never having tried any pigments or powders at all I was obviously hooked and I wanted to buy some more vinyls anyways. Talk about two birds with one stone!
I couldn’t find the aurora supreme pigment on their website but I found the aurora pigment right here. Honestly don’t know what the difference is, I assume that the supreme one is supposed to be better (finer pigments?).
Disclaimer up first: I did not apply this pigment the way that Whats Up Nails recommends on their website. But I honestly really like the way mine turned out so yeah… The only thing I will do differently next time, is to buy either a gel top coat or a water base one. You’ll see why if you keep on reading!
So first off, as always I applied the ‘Nail Repair’ base coat from PRO-FX. Then, I moved on to ‘Black to Black’ by Sally Hansen. You don’t have to do two coats for this if you don’t think it’s necessary. I only applied one coat.
It’s pigment time! This is honestly so exiting and it’s going to make your life a bit more sparkly, believe me. Take the pigment and your finger or a makeup applicator to apply the pigment to your nails. Make sure the black polish is NOT completely dry yet. It has to be a bit sticky for the pigment to hold on to. The amount you apply is really up to you. You can cover your entire nails or do a fine gradient. Or you can cover your nails in a light dust of the pigment, it really is up to what you prefer. Look at that:
P.S. This is how the pigment looks over black polish and as I recon most dark shades. If you apply this pigment over lighter shades they will look more ‘unicorn’ like. You can use this pigment with whatever shade of polish you fancy. I will try to put them over clear polish one day, as soon as I do, I will link that post to this one.
When you’re done with this step. Apply a top coat first, before you try and remove the pigment that is going to be all over your skin. I used the ‘Color Therapy’ one from Sally Hansen. This is the only top coat I currently have so I had to use this one. After the top coat is completely dry you can go ahead and wash your hands, the pigment comes off very easily.
Here is why I personally would use a different top coat the next time I’ll be using this pigment. I mean, it’s not like they look ugly with a normal top coat, but they would be shinier with the correct one.
