Rose Gold Mirror Pigment Review

Some items in this post were provided for honest review.

Hi everyone!

I have another Beauty Big Bang product to share with you today! Earlier this week, I showed you their loose chameleon flakies. Today, I have their rose gold mirror pigment to show you.

Painted Fingertips | Rose gold mirror pigment nails - Beauty Big BangI applied these in the exact same way I did the chameleon holo flakes. I started with a black base, and then painted a coat of Yellow Stopper. Once it was almost completely dry, I used the applicator that came with the mirror pigment to gently rub it onto the surface of my nails. In this case, the pigment didn’t provide quite as opaque a layer, so I added a second coat of Yellow Stopper and a second layer of pigment.

Although this pigment is described as rose gold, to me it was more of a coppery colour (and no less gorgeous for that!)

Just to see what would happen, I added a regular top coat:

I’m sure gel would work fine (but the whole point of using Yellow Stopper instead of a gel base is to avoid the annoyance of gel), or a water based top coat, which I still haven’t gotten around to getting!
