Andrea Fulerton - Gemstone Overcoat

I spend a fair amount of my free time reading other blogs, and trawling the internet for interesting nail varnishes.  While doing this, I came across a blog entry on Varnish Me, where Olivia uses Golden Rose Scale Effect 06 as an overcoat.  I absolutely fell in love with this look and went on the hunt for Golden Rose nail varnish in the UK.  They have just come to the UK however I believe the scale effect nail polishes have been discontinued as they are not listed in their catalogue.

Whilst hunting, I came across the Andrea Fulerton range.  Seeing that they stock it in Superdrug I decided to pop in and have a personal look at the range. Wow was I impressed!  So many choices to create some brilliant looks!  I had a hard time picking my favourites, and to be honest I came away with a fair few which I will most definitely be showing you as soon as I wear them (one of which matches the Golden Rose style on Varnish Me).

I was looking for something easy to pop on before work this morning, and the Gemstone Overcoat caught my eye - sparkling away in my nail varnish box.

It is meant to be worn as an overcoat, but to be honest I really couldn't be bothered to pick a colour to layer it over!  So I popped on a base coat, and then layered two coats of the Andrea Fulerton Gemstone Overcoat, followed by a top coat.

I absolutely love it! I found myself getting mesmerised by it all day at work as it continually catches the light and reflects beautifully between orange and green.

It's a scaley polish, so by no means does it produce an opaque result - hence the visible nail line, but it was never my aim to make it opaque, I just wanted to one of my new varnishes that was easy and stunning - and I think I most definitely got it!

I have to say I really am excited to try this as an overcoat, and also try the others that I have bought, so keep your eyes peeled for more stunning swatches from the Andrea Fulerton range!
