NYC Fashion Queen (Crystal Couture) and Wet n Wild Everyone Loves Redmond

Hi :)

NYC Fashion Queen was so deliciously sparkly and metallic that I couldn’t take it off, or stop staring at my nails, so instead I added a coat of a fab bright red jelly polish called Wet n Wild Everyone Loves Redmond.

The jelly finish of the red polish meant that you could still see the sparkle and metallic finish under the red, so I got the best of both worlds, squishy and shiny! :D

A jelly sandwich is when you put on a coat of jelly nail polish, then a glitter, then another coat of jelly polish, i.e. you sandwich the glitter between two coats of jelly. (Anyone else getting hungry?)

This was just a coat of jelly polish over another polish so it’s more like….jelly on toast? Anyway I liked how it turned out. :)

I used striping tape to make the V shapes and Seche Vite to seal it all in. I hope you like it :)

NYC Fashion Queen (Crystal Couture)

Hi :)

The NYC Crystal Couture Collection. *Sigh* It’s sooo pretty! I already posted Princess here and I thought that purple jelly with glitter was gorgeous but all polishes now pale in comparison to this gold creation.

This is not just a gold polish, not just a gold polish with gold glitter, but a gold polish with gold glitter and gold glassflecks.

So It’s not just metallic, not just sparkly but it has a foil finish! It’s shiny, sparkly and foily! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaa! I love it so much! I want to paint my entire house with it and live like Kind Midas!

Nails Inc South Kensington & H+M Jo Is In The House

Hi Everyone! :)

I wasn’t kidding when I said I’d probably still be wearing the Nails Inc Foil Effect polish! I couldn’t take it off – it is just so shiny! :)

However, I wanted to show you guys something new, so I added H+M Jo Is In The House. This is the prettiest silver holo glitter I have ever seen – if you’re going to get one silver glitter – definitely make it this one. I’ve been stalking my H+M for this polish since I saw it on TheNailasaurus a while ago. So, so glad I did! (Ok..I know I go on a bit, but these are really great polishes!)

Also, I was disappointed with my last striping tape tutorial and did another one – so keep reading if you’d like to see it.

1. To begin, cut off ten pieces of striping tape. Then, using a tweezers, place two pieces on your nail in the shape of an X.

2.(1) Then take two more pieces, and place them parallel to one side of the X, to make a smaller V shape.

3. Repeat this step on all four sides to get this design.

4. Then paint over the striping tape with one coat of polish (Collection 2000 All That Jazz).

5. Quickly, using tweezers, remove all pieces of tape and this is the end result! :)

Nails Inc South Kensington

Hi Everyone! :)

I am so excited about this mani. I realllly wanted this polish for Christmas after seeing Heather Berry wearing it on QVC. I didn’t get it then, but I did get my hands on a mini bottle yesterday and I put it on immediately. I was hoping it would look as nice in real life as it did on the telly, but I was wrong. It’s better! I love this one so much.

Out of all of the latest trends in nail polish, textures and crackles and such, this one is my favourite. I really don’t want to take it off…I think my next blog post may be “still wearing Nails Inc South Kensington”. :)

Heather did say to wear this on bare nails as it would apply better, but I always have to wear basecoat. So I put on one coat of Essie Millionails, one coat of Essie Matte About You and then the Nails Inc. She also said to wear it without topcoat, so I did.

This is one coat of South Kensington:

219.1 Nails Inc South Kensington 01

This is two coats:

219.2 Nails Inc South Kensington 01

 

and look, it matches!

219.3 Nails Inc South Kensington 01

 

What do you guys think of this polish?

 

Thanks for looking! :)
