Do you have some colours that you love and wished they stayed on for longer?
I know I do.. OPI Rainforest, Jasper Jade, Zulu, Essie Starry Starry night.... I could go on and on.
I know I get cranky when I want to wear the colour for 1-2 weeks and it chips half way through. I recently went to a Young nails course and found the perfect solution for me. Its a soak off gel so comes off with acetone, but it cures like gel so doesn't move until you remove it, lasts up to 2-3 weeks! You can actually mix ANY nail colour you love into the gel and pop it on your nails like polish.... cure and u have lasting polish!
I will be doing a starry starry night soon, so hope to show u! Its worth looking into if u have fallen inlove with a colour and cant stand to remove it. Hmmm holo my private Jet might be worth a try!
Just thought would show you a set I had fun doing today. A set of IBD gels using extreme clear for strength and glitter pieces for the smile line.
I am going to do my nails tomorrow with OPI pink flamingo gel, so it will be interesting to see how close it is to the colour in the bottle. I was thinking what is OPI my private jet like in gel.. I bet its not the holo version which sux!
Hope you are all doing well. Today I have for you some SephoraOPI's. I really like this brand, but being in Australia its kinda hard to get my hands on them. Two I got recently are Social Climer and Opening night.
I am not a huge fan of silvers or the more paler colours but really didn't mind Social Climer. I was surprised at how nicely it applied and the good coverage of the polish. The polish only needed 2 coats and wasn't streaky at all. It was glossy prior to top coat too!
The other Colour I received was Opening night. I just love blues and dark colours so was very excited by this one. This again applied really well and only needed 2 coats. This it a mix between OPI Yoga ta get this blue and Russian Navy. Soooo in love with this one!!!!
Today I thought I would show you something I just moved to my swap bin. Orly Gorgeous, even though its gorgeous it wasn't enough to keep me from putting in my swap pile. This looks so much better in the bottle than on the hands. In this pic I used 2 coats and you can still see the nails underneath.... not something i like. The things I like about this polish is the shine and the purple undertones to it... just lovely!
Sorry it has taken me a while to do a post, but most of you are aware I just had a baby. My little one was born on March 16th and I named him Liam John. Here are some pics of the little man.
I wanted to cut my nails prior to going into labour but it didn't happen lol.... so there i am chewing my nails off after having the baby..... heheh too funny. All the nurses commented on my chewed up nails hehehe.
I thought i would show you a few pics of nails I had prior to cutting them.

Today I have for you a few colours I got a few weeks ago and finally gave them a try today. There are 4 new colours that have been released for Asia and I was lucky enough to get my hands on a set of them. I love pinks so was thrilled when I got these, I have to say I like them all.
The first one I tried was Pink Cupcake..... Oh I just LOVE this one. Its a real girly bubble gum pink with a lovely shimmer throughout. The shimmer gives the polish a lovely purple glow in the shade. Did I mention I LOVE this one...
I was not so sure about this one when i saw it in the bottle, but on the nail it looks lovely. Its not a bold over the top pink. Its a subdue light pink with small glitter throughout. It really is a soft pretty colour that is great if you don't want something over the top... but one something that has a lovely glow.
Pink a peach
This looks light a lighter version of pink cupcake but doesn't have such a purple glow, this one seems to be more gold based. I love the shimmer thought this one... so pretty!
Last but not least
Sugar cookie pink
I just loved this colour instantly when I saw it in the bottle but was a little disappointed about how sheer it is. I had to use 4 coats to get a similar look to what is in the bottle. This one is a really light jelly based colour and if you wanted you could incorporate it in a french mani or do the 4 coats and have a soft barbie look. I prefer to 4 coats... but don't have the time to let it dry!
