Nail and Make Up Review for brand A.K.A (Also Known As)
I have decided review A.K.A whose make-up strap line is ‘Awaken the ‘other you’ with this cutting edge, modern collection of make-up products’.The make-up brand was launched in 2012 and has been an undercover secret amongst make-up artists for a while because of the unusual colours and long lasting formulas. Taking the industry by storm with it’s on trend colour palette and fierce brand attitude, the A.K.A creative team have sourced the best quality ingredients to base this brand resulting in premium quality make-up products.
The white packaging is very simple and almost scientific looking. I liked the way it reminded me of 1920s make-up which was all about the product instead of marketing hype.
Nail Colour Review:The first product that I have reviewed from this range is the A.K.A Nail polish in a shade called Hidden Secret. This was a silvery black that looked full of swirly marble in the bottle. On application the shade went on very easily, not gloopy at all. I needed 2 coats and the varnish dried quite quickly. As it is a very dark shade I would say to be careful around your cuticles as it catches very easily. Upon drying, the colour was a glossy, marvellous black shade that gave the look of gel nails. As it had a metallic element to it, the colour was hi-shine and dramatic. Perfect for the party season. I would definitely use this shade again and perhaps use some glitter or nail art to intensify the wonderful glossy black canvas it gives you.
