Today I have for you a deep forest green polish from the wonderful Alter Ego Nail Enamel called Balsam Beauty. It is part of her brand new Winter Wonders Collection and is now available at the Big Cartel shop here. Cynthia, the lovely maker of these semi-matte polishes, was inspired by the fir trees the original owner of her house planted many years ago! The deep green base tinged with the darkest blue and dusted with fine copper makes the Balsam Beauty a must have for any collection. I used two coats and followed up with Alter Ego's very own top coat. BB applied flawlessly! I also am throwing in a little nail art that I created with the use of some chevron nail vinyls.
Alter Ego's dry to a semi-matte finish unless you use a top coat which I find to be a great option. Sometimes I feel like a matte and other times I like to bring on the shine. Her polishes are available now so head on over to her shop on Big Cartel to pick up some new lovelies for your collection. Please stop by her Facebook page also listed here to watch for any specials and just to say hi.
