I'm not great at maths, so it seems quite incredible that I have spent a large proportion of my professional life working in banking, finance, and accounts, dodging well-meaning managers who were keen for me to study accountancy by night.
Beauty maths, though, are a different story.
Here's one equation that I worked out for Beaut.ie recently:
Today's Talon-Tastic Thursday is the product of a similar experiment.
I added a bright purple glitter polish and a squishy black jelly polish in hopes that the solution would ape Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance.
Now, I know that Bad Romance also contains large hexagonal glitter, but I really just wanted to see if I could create an approximation of it rather than a true copycat.
Here's how it turned out:
Oh yes, works for me. I think I'll call it Good Romance.
If that hasn't sated your lust for a more Bad Romance-alike polish complete with hexagonal flakes, Revlon's Facets of Fuchsia looks like a good bet for a dead-on budget dupe.
It's not out until October, though, when it'll cost 9 of your finest Eurobux; I'll be quite happily making do with my DIY version until then.
