Stoke of Midnight ...

6 CLICK HERE TO LEAVE A COMMENT
Hiya All


hope you are having a great weekend. I have managed to get some swatching done today and following on from my last post... here is another from the same collection. I believe it was the China Glaze Glass Slipper collection. It seems I have a few from this collection... without even knowing.


Today I tried this lovely blue sparkly polish Stroke of midnight. It seems to border on aqua and has a silver glitter throughout. I am loving this one.. its so shimmery. 2 coats and you have an opaque nail. The formula is great as well, its not too thick or thin.... just loving it!


On to the PICS!!!

China Glaze WICKED STEPSISTERS... um wow

5 CLICK HERE TO LEAVE A COMMENT
Hiya all


Well its Friday yay! I thought I would show you a yummy colour I am wearing over the weekend. This is HTF? I think it may be... Anyway this is a lovely deep shimmery red.

This one really reminds me of the summer days collection - Raspberry Festival. This applies exactly the same as the summer days collection. 2 coats of Wicked stepsisters and you have the perfect opaque colour. The only issue I have with this colour is noticeable tip wear... I have had this on for 1 day and my tips are already showing....... how annoying!

Anyway on to the pics!









Does anyone know the other colours from the collection with Wicked stepsisters?

Zoya Indigo... I love you!

Hiya All



well its hump day and hooray to that! It has been a very long week. Today I have for you something I put on today that blew me out of the water. Zoya Indigo, I have NO idea why I haven't tried this one sooner... its fabulous. This is a lovely indigo blue with sprinkled glitter inside. The application is lovely, 2 coats and the nail is completely opaque with colour. The glitter in the bottle looks fab but it is somewhat subtle on the nail. Still lovely to look at, this polish really looks amazing in the sun. So enough talk here are heaps of pics!

Bloom Bianca... oh this one is hot stuff!

Hiya All
I hope you are all having a great weekend. Today I managed to get a few swatches done and one of the polish I wanted to show you is Bloom Bianca. I have never tried bloom polish but and was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. The polish applied really well and had a great consistency.. not too thick or thin. In the pictures I have 2 coats on, I really don't think a third was needed.

I love how blue teal colour and how it takes on a whole new look in the sun. The only down side about the polish is the price... $20 a bottle.... or 2 for $15.

OMG Hot Topic Purple glitter....WOW and double WOW

8 CLICK HERE TO LEAVE A COMMENT
Hiya All

Today I have on a colour that has absolutely got me staring at my nails every 5 minutes. I got this one in a swap yesterday and as soon as I saw it I just HAD to put it on. This is such an amazing colour, it reminds me of OPI Ink but with more bang. This colour is such a glittery purple with a heavy blue base and just packed and I MEAN packed full of glitter. The application was excellent 2 coats and you have the desired look of the bottle. The only bad thing I have to say about this polish is that I HATE hot topic bottles, the brush and bottle are just not practical to use. To combat this I have bought an empty bottle of polish and I am going to decant this one.

My dream now is to find a back up of this one! I think I will cry if I run out!!!! I have attached a heap of pics cos I just LOVE this colour!

China Glaze DV8

7 CLICK HERE TO LEAVE A COMMENT
Hiya All

hope you are all well! Today I was looking through some of my pics I haven't shown you and I came across this little beauty. China Glaze DV8. This is from China Glaze OMG collection, which is still readily available. This is a lovely holographic teal, the application is excellent.. I didn't find it streaky but I have to say the lasting ability for this one is not the best. In saying that.... I tend to find holos don't last very well with me... not matter what routine I do!

So holo fans... what routine do you use to get lasting ability?

I just love how this colour looks on short nails.... its awesome.

Chanel Cosmic Violine 497... i love it!

Hiya all

Thank you all for your kind thoughts for my op. It went well and I should be back up and about in the next few days. For the moment I am feeling sorry for myself in bed, but at least i get to use the pc for a few hours..... thank goodness for laptops!

Today I have for you a Chanel I got a few weeks ago. Chanel Cosmic Violine, I know there have been mixed reviews about this one... but I love it. Its a lovely brown based red filled with gold and greenish glitter throughout. I find that the glitter is not as predominant as it is under artificial light. The polish applied like a dream, dried very quickly and the lasting ability was excellent. I generally find that Chanels wear really well on me... hence why I love them so.

This one is defiantly one you should try.

Hiya All

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Again no swatches done this weekend but I do have some old pics for you that I have never posted. This is one of my favourite pinks from Sephora.. $OPI Arm candy. A lovely medium creamy pink. I just think this colour looks brilliant on short nails.

I am going in to hospital tomorrow so will be off line for a few days. Should be back to posting in about a week. Hope you all have a fab week.

xxoo

Color Club Emerald Depths

2 CLICK HERE TO LEAVE A COMMENT
Hiya All

Well I have not had time to do any swatching so I thought I would put up some pics I did ages ago and haven't shown you. These are from last year...as the nails are short and cute. I am not a huge Color Club fan but I do enjoy this color. Its such a vibrant shimmery blue.... but the name doesn't seem to suit it... how is this colour Emerald? Dunno... but still love the colour.

OPI My Private Jet... Old Formula VS New

4 CLICK HERE TO LEAVE A COMMENT
Hiya All

I know this comparison has probably been done to death... but I had to see it for myself. OPI My Private Jet is one of my all time favourite colours. When it first came out I just could not get enough of the colour..... now it seems that OPI have changed the formula and ... I am sad to say I no longer like MPJ. I find the newer version to be less of a holo, have a somewhat purple base and applies like crap... far too thick. So I guess I will have to cherish the only bottle of OLD formula MPJ I have....... boo on you OPI!

China Glaze Moonpoool VS Zoya Madori

4 CLICK HERE TO LEAVE A COMMENT
Hiya All

Hope you are all doing well. Its been a mega busy week for me and I only managed to scrape this swatch together today. I was looking through some of my greens and saw Madori and thought hmmm that it reminds me of Moonpool... so hence the swatch comparison. I found them to look quite different in the bottle but on the nail they are very similar. The main difference is that Moonpool is slightly darker and the application is much thinner due to the fact the bottle is old. Other than that if you are desperate to get yourself a bottle of moonpool... I personally wouldn't bother Madori is super close and the applications is x10 better!

So onto the pics

Sorry for the lack of posts but I have been flat out! My sister has arrived back from the USA to live, I haven't seen her in 9 years....... so its been an amazing time for me. Well time for some Zoya pinks I loooove.
Gweneth
A real delight to apply. A rosy red based pink and only 2 coats needed to give you perfection on a nail!


Jewell

Zoya Ooh-La-La swatches..loving this collection!

2 CLICK HERE TO LEAVE A COMMENT
Hiya all

Hope your having a fab week. So happy its Friday tomorrow, I am totally over this week... far too busy!

Enough complaining, time to talk about my favourite topic.. nail polish. Today I have come quick and nasty swatches I did over the weekend from Zoyas new Ooh-La-La collection. I love all the colours in the collection except Emme.I found all of the polishes to apply well, last really well and look great, obviously with the exception of Emme. I found Emme to be streaky, you can see the brush stokes and not a pleasant colour to look at. So enough talk onto the pics

Madori
