Scandal Polishes

Hiya All

I am sorry about the delay in swatching these. I bought these a while ago and just haven't had the change to use them. I finally got around to swatching them on a opaque false nail. These bottles look exactly like the NFU-Oh bottles. These are not only lovely to look at but the colours are really nice too. All the pictures are all with 2 coats of polish and 1 coat of top coat.

Olive Pearl. This one is a lovely emerald green glitter polish. It is full of large and small glitter pieces and is fairly heavily glitter packed.

Madelene Green. I really like this one its a dirty olive green with silver glitter throughout, application on this one was excellent.

Love Holic green. Oh I LOVE this one, its a creamy grass green and applies like a dream!

Olive green. This is a light olive green colour packed full of gold glitter

Shining purple. OH I LOVE THIS. This is a heavily packed purple glitter polish suspended in a jelly like base, just amazing!

Dynamic Pink- This is a pink jelly base with rainbow coloured glitter pieces floating throughout. As its a jelly base its somewhat a little sheer but still lovely.

Red Spindle - A light pink jelly based polish with a mixture of small and large glitter pieces throughout. This is somewhat a little sheer for me.

Purple Star - A VERY light purple based glitter with small glitter pieces and large star glitter pieces, looks good in the bottle but I just don't like it on the nail.

Disco Purple. Oh I love this one its kinda in between Dynamic Pink and Red Spindle just lovely

China Glaze - Meteor Shower

Hi All

Hope you are all well. Today I actually got around to painting my nails.... mind you I did it outside so the smell was somewhat subdued. This colour arrived in my mail today and I just HAD to try it. China Glaze Meteor shower, oh it looks amazing in the bottle.
I found it looked gritty and clumpy with the first coat but the second coat seemed to fix it up a little. The colour is truly lovely, its a blue base with multi coloured glitter throughout that doesn't over through the blue.
I am however disappointed with the finish. The finish is gritty and the polish was gloopy to use. The finish is very much the same as China Glaze Flying dragon... GRITTY... so you will need a really good topcoat. Even with top coat there is some grit to the polish. Overall I do like the polish, the glitter and depth of blue is just stunning!

intl date line

Hiya All
Hope your all doing well. Today will be a very quick post of a oldie I have sitting around. Int'l date line is a colour I am iffy over, I have only worn this twice and still cannot decide if I should keep it or throw it.

The application is lovely but that's due to the fact its the old formula and full of lovely chemicals. In this pic I have 2 coats and the nail is fully opaque.
Should I keep it or throw it?

Also for those who have been waiting I FINALLY have some wedding pics to show you

OPI Nordic Nights

Hiya All

I know I know I have been MIA lately... but for good reason. Some exciting news... I am having a baby! I am currently at the 1/2 way mark now.. all the morning sickness has gone, but guess what the smell of polish makes me feel sick... how crap is that.

Anyway I have a few back ups of pics I took ages ago that have been sitting in drafts so thought I would work my way through them until I can handle the polish smell. This polish is called OPI Nordic nights, its a fairly old polish so it has the old formula and applies wonderfully. This is a lovely creamy dark bluish red. This is actually one of my fav reds .... darn OPI for discontinuing it.. I don't have much left!!

OPI Concept store Malaysia

Hi All
Going through some of the honeymoon pics today and have found some I thought I should show you. While in Malaysia I went to an OPI concept store... I had seen it on the Internet and was excited about it so thought I would pay a visit. My jaw just dropped when I saw the store... the whole wall was just plastered in OPI Nail polish.... THAT'S MY KINDA PLACE LOL . Every treatment in the store was using OPI products which was fabulous.

The only disappointment with the place was the hygiene. I thought being an upmarket salon they would have taken more care and pride in their store. All the products for pedicures were in these crappy buckets and I didn't notice any sanitising of metal utensils. Sorry but I am a stickler for hygiene when it comes to working on peoples nails. Apart from that the store was amazing... I think I spent around an hour just browsing the polishes... pure heaven
Here are some pics

I'm BACK !

Hi everyone,

Hope you have all been well!. I had a lovely wedding and fab honeymoon.
For the Honeymoon I went to Malaysia and Thailand. They are both amazing countries and all the people there are lovely. During the trip I think I had about 3 massages and 7 pedicures... every street had a beauty place.. so I thought why not.

One of the most interesting Pedicures I had was a Fish pedicure. Basically there is a massive tank filled with fish that like to eat dead skin and scales of other fish. At first I was a little unsure whether to get one or not.... but thought why not, I am not here everyday so why not try it.

I was so pleased that I tried it as I ended up loving it.

Here is a pic and by the way the hairy leg in the water is not mine hahahah... that's the hubby.

A scandal hall!

Hi All

Hope you are all doing well!

Today I thought I would pop in and show you some Scandal polishes I got the other day. I am dying to try them... but alas I will not be able to until I return from the Honeymoon. So thought I would show you some pics and close up pics. These bottle look VERY close to the Nfu-oh branded polish.
I have used scandal polishes before and I find them great to work with. The one thing I really like about them is they contain a lot of glitters in their collection and some yummy greens. Anyway enough talk on to some pics.

OPI DS Divine, Asia Version

Hiya all
Had some spare time so thought I would post. How have all of you been???? It is getting close to the wedding day now, getting excited and nervous all at the same time. I had a few spare minutes to paint my nails today so I thought I would show you a pic of OPI Designer series Divine made for the Asian market.
I am totally loving this one, its a super crazy packed medium purple glitter polish, heavily packed with silver glitter. This polish applied extremely well. I used 2 coats in these pics and no top coat... and look how glossy it ended.
Loving this one!

One of the places I am going to is KL in Malaysia. I am so excited to go there as there is a massive OPI concept nail bar there. Apparently this was the first one in the world to open and from pictures it looks amazing.

I am certainly going to spend a few hours here.

OPI Blooming collection

Hiya all
Sorry for the lack of posts lately, have been busy with wedding preps. I have one more post after this one and then will be taking a break for a while. The colours I have for you today are from the OPI blooming collection, which is an Ulta exclusive. I found all of these colours to apply well.

The first colour I tried was OPI Fuchsia Fling, I absolutely love this colour, its a darkened creamy fuchsia pink. Hot stuff!

The next colour is OPI I'm OK You're bouquet. I was a bit sceptical about this colour as I am truly not a fan of light or baby pinks but I actually surprised myself and loved this one. This is a creamy baby pink with a blue undertone.

Last but not least OPI The Violet-ter, the Better. This colour I adore. This is a medium purple that leans towards pink. It applies like a creme and has a very subtle shimmer to it.

Bloom Bonnie

Hiya All
Still feeling a little on the sick size, but nearly all better. Think a few more days in bed may fix me up. In my crazy haze of sickness I cut my nails. The good thing is now i can wear hot dark colours on my nails. I actually managed to change the colour on my nails this week. Today I have for you Bonnie which I had on for 1 day and then went back to wearing nothing on my nails.
Bonnie is an awesome colour from Bloom and I would have to say this is my fav from their collection. Its a lovely dark blue packed full of micro blue glitter pieces. The application is excellent, 2 coats and the nail is opaque. It also dries glossy so its super glittery. Just love this one.
Oh I also made my nails even shorter today again hehe. I think I will be applying some false nails on for the wedding, simply due to the fact the management over the wedding will be much easier for me... So will show you what they look like when i get time to apply them.

Orly Silent Night

Hiya all
Hope your well. I am sick as a dog with the flu, hence why there hasn't been a recent post. Had a fever last night with a temperature of over 41. Finally broke this morning and feeling better.. still worn out and tired tho. I guess that's what happens when winter comes along.

Over the weekend when I was feeling much more alive I swatched a colour I have had for SOOO LONG but have never tried..... Orly Silent night. This colour is a lovely blue based colour with both blue and silver glitter suspended in it.. looks like a night sky to me. The application was really good for an Orly. It took 3 thin coats to get the look what the bottle shows. As for wear... as I have been sick I have been unable to change my nails :-( but glad to say this one is still on and going strong. Only minimal tip wear to be seen.

I love this colour but desperate to change my nails!.. however wont be happening until i am better.
