Pegasus is the name of a chunky glitter nail polish by the Korean brand Innisfree. It caught my attention because it is such an unusual shade with it's rose gold, silver and white assortment of glitteriness that I found myself quite taken by it at first glance.
Isn't it lovely? Isn't it won-der-ful?
It brings to mind convoluted images of an art-deco mansion in neglected decline. Picture it...peeling white paint, dilapidated rose gold fixtures.
I've decided to wear Pegasus on top of OPI's Pearl of Wisdom as it has a lovely dichroic effect with a subtle shimmery lustre.
Excuse my battered fingers. Jewellery making. sewing and art has taken it out on them a bit but it is a satisfying feeling to have.
Pegasus does contain large glitter particles of many shapes and so a good topcoat is essential! I always use Japanese gel topcoat for this task as they are thicker and do a marvellous job of holding down the glitter under a smooth, clear and super glossy layer.
I use Parado gel coat with Pegasus.
If you are interested in trying the Parado gel coat. I have a spare one that I can sell for £12.00 (UK only) do email me if you are interested.
