Starry Summer Nights Nail Art with CF Beauty Cosmetics - Swatch & Review

My oh my, do I have a beautiful shade to show you today!! CF Beauty Cosmetics Nº2 Ocean Breeze is quite magical actually!

This one's again part of the 2015 Spring/Summer edition that I was sent for review by CF Beauty Cosmetics (check previous posts on this collection HERE).

Let's see what I'm on about then:

CF Beauty Cosmetics Nº2 Ocean Breeze

Ocean Breeze is a translucent kind of nail polish, with a metallic-y/pearly finish.
The only downside to its beauty is the amount of coats you'll need to make it look semi opaque - you can still see a nail line on my nails even though I applied four coats.
It's the only thing that'll make me think twice when reaching for it.
However, I'll say coats dry fast and the brush strokes aren't that visible considering the type of finish on this polish.

Starry Summer Nights Nail Art

I can understand the name Ocean Breeze - do you know those sunny days, when the light reflects on the water?
But I wasn't inspired by the ocean for this nail art though - all I kept thinking about were fireflies and starry nights.
 So, that's what I painted on my nails  and I couldn't have found a better canvas.

This colour is terrific indeed and I love the fairy light effect it has.
The nail art was done in black and white acrylic paint.

How do you like it? And how about the nail polish? Is the four coats thing a turn off for you or are you okay with it considering the beautiful colour?
I wanna know, so drop a comment below!

  1. Gorgeous blue and the nail art is lovely too.

  2. I love that design, so delicate and pretty! 4 coats wouldn't usually put me off so long as it's easy to apply.

  3. This is such a lovely design!! The dawn is absolute my favourite time of the day and this beautiful design reminds me of it :) I personally don't mind 4 coater polishes, as long as it doesn't get too thick :D

  4. This sort of polish I both love and hate. I live the pearly finish, it's so perfect for Summer! But they are so sheer and you need like five coats.. I have a bunch of polishes just like this and I love/hate them! Lol!! I love the nail art!

  5. Shame about the opacity but your nail art is so beautiful! Delicate and gorgeous!

  6. A lot of work but it does look so good and a lovely bit Art!

  7. That is so pretty! I love how little black you used, would have been to harsh maybe if those part were bigger. Now the balance is perfect!

  8. Your mani is so delicate, love it :) Too bad that you needed four coats to reach full opacity !

  9. Thank you, hun! And you're right, the whole four coats is a bummer

  10. Thank you so much, sweetie! I was going to add more black, but I'm glad I didn't :)

  11. Aww, appreciated, thank you, John! :)

  12. Thank you so much, hun - I, too, was sad - it's such a lovely polish!

  13. Exactly my thoughts - why do they look lovely but are devils to apply? hehehe
    The only thing that cheers me up is that the polish dries really fast, so it doesn't take forever ;)

  14. Dawn in the Summer, specially, is my favourite.
    This polish doesn't get thick and the drying time between coats is actually pretty good - I just usually shy away from four coater polishes, because it means I take double the time doing my mani ;(

  15. Thanks, sweetie! It is easy to apply and the quick drying time does help, but still four coats... ;(

  16. Thank you so much, Lisa *

  17. I love your nail art, it's so delicate as Dorra said, and the base is beautiful but I'm always put off by shades that are more than 3 coats :(

  18. I love the simplicity of this nail art. So subtle and so cute.

  19. Oh man, 4 coats is a bummer but I love your nail art so much! It's adorable!


You just made this girl smile! Thank you for your comment and for sharing your thoughts with me! :)
