Kingsday is almost coming up, which means that it’s time again to take out anything orange out of the closets. Etos has a few products in their own brand collection that are perfect use for creating a Kingsday Look, including a Limited Edition Holographic Lipgloss which I’m going to show you today.
To create a Kingday manicure, you will need the shades Hearts, Marry Me, Blue Lagoon and Go Holland. As I’ve mentioned in previous reviews, I love the formula of the Etos nailpolishes. They’re super affordable and usually are fully opaque in two coats, as are all of these shades.
I used two coats of Go Holland on all fingers except my ring finger. I created the Dutch Flag as an accent nail, using two coats of Marry Me to start and carefully applied Hearts and Blue Lagoon over top just using the brush and cleaning the edges where I went outside my nails, only needing one coat since we already have the white shade as a base. It’s a really easy and quick mani for Kingsday.
The Limited Edition Etos Holographic Lipgloss is a product that is only shortly available, from the 10th to 27th of April.
It is a sheer gloss with an orange base. I wouldn’t call it Holographic myself though but it still looks nice. Holographic to me is shifting to all colors of the rainbow. This gloss gives a slight duochrome effect depending on the lighting, shifting from orange to yellow/green. Since it’s sheer, the base will look different from person to person depending on the pigmentation of the lips.
I have very pigmented, pink lips so the Limited Edition Etos Holographic Lipgloss looks slightly peachy on me. It feels sticky and re-application is a must from time to time since it’s a gloss. I like that the gloss has a subtle orange shade because this makes it more wearable, also for people who don’t usually wear make-up or bold shades. If you want a bright orange lip look, I would suggest to use an orange lipstick as a base and use the gloss for a super shiny and duochrome effect.
With these Etos products, you can create a really easy and super affordable look. What’s nice about these products is that you can use all of them outside Kingsday as well so it’s not like you’re only able to use these once a year. The nailpolishes have great shades that are good to use on their own. The gloss isn’t a crazy bright orange shade so it’ can also be used for a Summer look for example.
All the Etos Nailpolishes and the Limited Edition Etos Holographic Lipgloss are available for €1,99 Euro each at Etos stores. The Holographic Lipgloss is only available until the 27th of April so get this shade while you still can!
