Twisted by Fingerpaints is a lemming that is one my wishlist for like forever. I can’t find it anywhere! Fingerpaints came up with a new flakies collection though. From what I’ve read and seen these seem less vibrant than for the first collection. Nevertheless I like them. They’re flakies, what can I say? ๐Ÿ˜€ This one, Vivid Reflection, was gifted to me by Nailluminati, thanks sweetie!ย fingerpaints - vivid reflectionIn the bottle it just looks like translucent flakies in a clear base. As said, there isn’t much color on the flakies or the base. So of course this needed to be layered over a base color. Instead of black I chose Eurso…Euro by OPI as my base color. As with most flakies the formula is a bit thick, but not too thick. Depending on the angle I see mostly red and purple. Such a pretty effect, don’t you think?ย fingerpaints - vivid reflection1Enjoy your Sunday! :*

L’Orรฉal: Sexy In Sequins

First things first… the new Retro Collection has been released this morning. Check out the shop page for swatches or directly head over to the shop ๐Ÿ˜€ Happy shopping!

Again a textured polish today ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t get enough of them. Sexy In Sequins byย L’Orรฉal was sent to me by my dear friend Nailluminati. Thanks so much!loreal - sexy in sequinsThere is a lot going on in this polish. I think that is exactly why I love it so much. There is fine gold glitter and bigger silver glitter and I even spot some pink particles. Lovely! The formula is great. A tiny bit on the thick side but I found application very easy. This is just two coats.ย loreal - sexy in sequins1Beautiful, don’t you agree?

Zoya: Odette & Monet

I was eyeing on Odette by Zoya for quite a while but it was constantly sold out everywhere. But here it is:zoya - odette - monetI am so in love with this color! It’s opaque in two easy coats. I added one coat of Zoya’s Monet on my accent nail. The formula of Monet is very thick which made application quite difficult. I love the iridescent hex glitter though ๐Ÿ™‚ย zoya - odette - monet1What do you think of Odette and Monet?

Meet Jemma from Eeeek! Nail Polish!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

We’re halfway on to the weekend ๐Ÿ˜€ Woot woot!

I proudly present to you a stunning mani by the sweetest Jemma from Eeeek! Nail Polish!:

I’m Jemma from Eeeek! Nail Polish! and I am so, so pleased to be guest posting on Sabrina’s fabulous blog! Sabrina was my first ever follower and was (and still is!) incredibly supportive when I first started my blog answering any questions (I had loads) and just being well, bloody marvellous! So, not only is she a fantastic blogger but Sabrina is a wonderful person too! However I do hold Sabrina fully responsible for my diminishing bank account – I have lost count how many times I’ve been on a ‘no buy month’ only to see one of her swatches that made me (that’s right MADE me! ) buy that polish there and then! lol

So, when Sabrina asked for us fellow bloggers to help her out following a particularly bad nail ‘snafu’ with some guest posts of course I said I’d help! This is what I came up with – I hope you like it!

I used the following polishes for this mani:

  • Essie ‘In The Can-Ana’ (2 coats) pinky finger & thumb (not shown)
  • China ‘Glaze ‘Tart-y For the Party’ (2 coats) index finger
  • O.P.I ‘My Boyfriend Scales Walls’ (accent nails) 2 coats
  • Dotting tools
  • Rhinestones & Studs
  • Seche Vite

Meet Jade from Passion for Polish

Happy Monday everyone!

I’d like you to meet Jade from Passion for Polish:

Hi All,

I’m Jade or Jelly Bean from Passion For Polish.

I am so excited to be doing this guest post ๐Ÿ™‚ It is my first guest post so a little bit nervous too (Blush face)

Bows have been an obsession of mine for as long as I can remember and when I started nail art I had to try them out – I must say that the first time I tried them they came out terribly but I have been practising them – in all shapes, sizes and of course colours too.IMG-20130826-WA0002

Rainbow Tag

Hello my lacquered loves!

I hope you’re all enjoying a fantastic weekend!

My nubbins are slowly growing back which is great because I really don’t like them that much when they’re so short. I know how shorter nails can look great, but it’s just not for me. So, I hope to be back soon. Actually I need to because I’m ridiculously behind with my swatching plans. And I have some new inspiration for nail art that I’m dying to share with you guys.

On to today’s post! A while back I was tagged by the sweet Brijit from Brijits Digits to participate in the Rainbow tag. I’ve had a hard time picking my favorite polishes. I just searched in every drawer of my Helmers, color by color, and picked the ones I loved most. I have many more fave’s than the ones I’m showing you here. I can go on and on… But who wants to read a post that looks more like a book than a blog post? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Also, there are some that I haven’t showed here in action yet but you’ll see them on this space in the near future for sure! Here we go…

OPI Big Apple Red is probably my favorite red ever. It’s discontinued (boo!) so I’ve picked up two back ups ๐Ÿ™‚
ANNY Woman in red is another fave. I wear this a lot on my toes. They can’t be left behind, can they?!1 Continue reading
