Ohhhh Essie Groovy Grape

6 CLICK HERE TO LEAVE A COMMENT
Hiya All


Today I have for you Essie Groovy grape. I got this one in a swap as its not one that's available in Australia... mega bummer as its super hot. A BIG thank you to the lovely lady who swapped with me... u know who you are.... *hugs*
This one I believe is an Ulta exclusive (which makes me mad... Grrr and double grrrr!). Essie groovy grape is a lovely vampy purple with a real blast of deep purple shimmer to it. The application of this one was amazing, I tend to find Essie polishes a little wishy washy but this one was divine, almost opaque in 1 coat and just seems to glow with 2 coats! Apart from being a super colour with super application it has awesome lasting power too!

My pics were taken when the sun was setting so they look a little on the crap side, but at least you can see the shimmer and the way the polish just glows.

China Glaze - Rain Storm

8 CLICK HERE TO LEAVE A COMMENT
Hi All

This week I am sporting blues... so today I have for you China Glaze Rain storm. After a week of reds I thought it might be cool to try and give you a week of blues. Rainstorm is a lovely lilac based light blue with blue glitter suspended in it. It is quite sheer so you need 2-3 coats. Its such a lovely colour. In the picture I have 3 coats on as its sheer but super glossy.

I prefer bold or dark colours but this is something I think I can just handle wearing hehe.


Enjoy!

Nicole by OPI............... Midnight Madness!

3 CLICK HERE TO LEAVE A COMMENT
Hi All


Well today I thought I would show you a colour other than RED. I actually got this colour about 2 days ago and just had to put it on immediately!. This colour is Nicole by OPI Midnight madness. I am not a huge fan of the Nicole colours but this one is definitely a winner.


This is a lovely blackened navy blue packed full of blue sapphire sparkles. The sparkles are really noticeable in the sun and shade. The application was excellent it was opaque at 1 coat but you need a second coat to show the true beauty of this colour. This is what I wanted OPI Midnight blue glitter to be.


1 more week to go till the Melbourne International Beauty Expo ... Yippeee!

Hiya All
Today I have another red for you. Gosh I have been spamming you with reds all week. I will have to give you some more variety next week! Today I have for you OPI Wanted red or alive, this is a lovely creme pinky red.....defiantly not a straight red.. it really has a strong pinkish tone to it. This one is fairy old, so it has the old formula and goes on like a dream. In the picture I have 2 coats and haven't applied a top coat yet.

This one is prefect for summer or winter, all round fabulous colour!

Hiya All

Oh my gosh the weather is really changing here in Melbourne. As Autumn is upon us here I decided to break out my favourite Autumn/winter colour grey. OPI you don't know Jacques is from the OPI French collection. It is a lovely darkened grey with a mauve undertone to it. It is a creme so it applied like a dream and you only need 2 thin coats to get an all over opaque look. The lasting quality is absolutely fabulous with this one. i have be able to go 2 weeks without chips with this colour.

Loving this dreamy grey!

OPI Bastille my heart....

2 CLICK HERE TO LEAVE A COMMENT
Hiya All

Today I have yet another swatch from the weekend. OPI Bastille my heart, which is from the France collection. This is a gorgeous red, actually I would say its a lovely berry vampy red. This one applies really well, in my pic there is 2 coats which gave the exact colour of the bottle. This colour has a shimmer through it which is noticeable in the sun and direct light. In the sun you can see the magenta shimmer ..... however indoors it really is a vampy red. I find it tends to look like a dull colour indoors. :-(

This one is something i would wear on the feet more than the hands, but that's only because i love loud colours.

Im ready to hit the streets!

5 CLICK HERE TO LEAVE A COMMENT
Another awesome red I tried over the weekend. OPI Red-y to hit the streets!. This one is close to dazzle me but the glitter suspended in this jelly is silver rather than gold glitter glitter. They are in the same vein of colour tho. This one applied like a dream and in the pics I have 2 coats. I do think, as this is a jelly you could really give it another coat if you wanted to... I personally thought it looked fine with just 2 coats.


On another note....I'm so excited I am off to the Melbourne International Beauty expo next weekend 4/5, I am hoping to bring back a truck load of interesting polishes to show you all.

Dazzle dazzle dazzle

Hi All

Today I have another one of the swatches I managed to do over the weekend, this is actually one I decided to keep on for a few more days than just Sunday..... cos I loooved it so much. When i put this on the first thing that came to mind was.... why the hell didn't I try this baby sooner.
Its such a lovely rich jelly red packed with glitter. It sparkles like mad in the sun and just looks so glossy in the shade. Its not one of those glitter packed polishes that look gritty, it really is a classy polish. I am certain to be sporting this one over winter for sure!

Ohhhhh Dress to Empess

Hi All

Today I got to swatch 4 polishes, that's a big effort for me, as never have more than enough time to do 1-2.... so it was a good day.

Today I have for you dress to empress from 2005 Japanese collection. It is a lovely bright glittery red. This one applies like a jelly and you need 2-3 coats to get the look of the bottle colour, however you can slightly see the nail bed still, I still LOVE THIS ONE!

Blue sparrow and nail wrap update

2 CLICK HERE TO LEAVE A COMMENT
Hi All
China Glaze blue sparrow is the colour I am sporting this weekend. This one goes hand in hand with China Glaze flying dragon. They seem to be the same consistency and texture. This one is a dark neon blue packed full of aqua glitter. The application of this one is good, really need 2 coats for this and a top coat is a must.... a top coat is also a must due to the fact it dries flat as its Neon.
No matter what the season this one looks fab for a pedi!





























I also wanted to give you an update on my nail wraps. The nail wraps have officially been removed. Its amazing the how much growth has come through since January.
