Wet n Wild Eggplant Frost

Hi :)

This is another amazing polish from Wet n Wild. They do the most beautiful colours and the formula is amazing. Plus, they’re reasonably priced. I have an official polish crush :)

This is a purple polish with a vibrant blue shimmer. It was so hard to capture but it is really gorgeous. I have a thing for purple/blue polishes and this one is a great addition!

What do you think?

I want to quickly show you the cute nail art brush set I got in Penny’s too, it was 2.50 euro and it’s adorable!

I love the pink dipped brush heads :)

Wet N Wild Under Your Spell

Hi :)

I wanted to do an Anti-Valentines day mani for all us single girls, who may or may not, get really bloody annoyed at seeing pink love hearts everywhere! Everywhere! :)

I thought this polish would be perfect. It’s a sheer black polish with lots of dark red, almost burgundy, shimmer. It gives full coverage after three coats, which is what I used. Even the name is perfect! :)

Wet n Wild Under Your Spell:

444.1 Wet n Wild Under Your Spell

Then I used my No.2 Born Pretty Store brush, (that I reviewed here), to make a negative space heart. (For the empty heart shaped hole where love should live but it doesn’t! It’s empty!) (Bitter? Moi?)

444.2 Wet n Wild Under Your Spell

I was reluctant to try negative space manis because I can’t bear the thought of having naked nails, even partially naked! I added topcoat just to have some polish over the heart, I know it’s weird. I’m a nail NeverNude.

So I panicked and used the dotting tool on the bottom of the brush to put glitter inside the heart. (The way I put chocolate in my real heart, to fill the gap.) (Emotional eater? Moi?)

Wet n Wild Under Your Spell and Catrice The Huntsman:

At this stage the girly, sparkly side of me came flooding out when I filled the little heart with glitter and I put glitter on everything! (There’s a metaphor in there somewhere..)

444.4 Wet n Wild Under Your Spell and Catrice The Hunstman

So there’s my confused mani! It doesn’t know whether it’s a sparkly Valentine’s day mani or a dark, empty Anti-Valentine’s day mani.

Which look are you going to wear for the big day? :D

Model’s Own Gun Grey and L.A. Colors Tinsel

Hi :)

In my Christmas stocking this year I found the cutest little gift set. Model’s Own and Impulse released limited edition sets, each containing Model’s Own nail buffer, nail polish and an Impulse spray.

Now of course I love any nail polish and I needed a new buffer (score!) but I was really happy to get an Impulse spray too! Impulse are like chocolates, (try not to read that in a Forest Gump voice, I dare you!), because, (no, not because “you never know what you’re gonna git”), because there are no bad Impulse sprays.

I got the set that included the Very Pink (Roses and Grapefruit) spray and the Gun Grey polish. Of course, the spray smells lovely and you can see the polish below. However, the polish smelled terrible, in ironic contrast to the lovely spray.

It’s a black polish with multi-coloured shimmer, mostly green and purple, but you can’t make out the colours unless you hold your nails under your nose. The shimmer makes the polish look more like a dark grey and slightly metallic, hence the name!

Model’s Own Gun Grey

430.1 Model's Own Gun Grey

I really liked the polish on it’s own and had no plans to do anything to it but then I dented one nail making a cup of tea, (with chocolate biscuits, mostly I wanted the biscuits), so then I added a coat of L.A. Colors Tinsel. A very sheer peach polish with glitter.

I liked the result – it kinda looks like the sky at night, or reallly simplified Galaxy nails, do you think?

Essence Who Am I? (Porcelain Effect)

Hi :)

Super simple nails today. No nail art, I promise!

This is another polish from the Essence Good Girl Bad Girl Collection. Who Am I? is an off white polish with a delicate pink shimmer throughout so it actually looks like a very pale pink.

I was expecting super shiny, smooth nails from the Porcelain Effect sticker on the bottle but it actually has a matte finish. I was surprised! I’m having a love affair with matte polishes right now so I loved the look and I never did topcoat it. (but I didn’t ruin it with a weird tribal design either!)

Revlon Powder Puff (Matte Suede)

Hi :)

I found my wedding nail polish!

Oh, what’s that you ask? Am I engaged? Why no, I’m not.

Do I have a boyfriend then? Well.. no. BUT I have my wedding nails sorted! Yaaaay! :D

Revlon Powder Puff is a gorgeous sheer white polish with very subtle, yet noticeable, blue shimmer and the thing that make it absolutely perfect? It’s matte!

It looks so natural and pretty on and the blue shimmer could be the something blue you have to have when you get married. (Yes, still totally single, but a girl can dream! and in that dream, I’m wearing this nail polish!)

As it’s sheer, you can still see the nail line, which I usually hate, but because the polish is white, the nail line just looks whiter, so it’s a very subtle french mani sort of effect.

Perfect! Perfect! Perfect!

Wet n Wild Disturbia and Orly Luxe

Hi :)

After my success copying the Jessica Biel mani, I wanted to try some more nail art. I was on a high and success breeds confidence! However, I’m not very skilled at art or very creative so I went to the always impressive The Nailasaurus for inspiration and saw this.

The Nailasaurus created this look by hand drawing the gold lines, but that’s way out of my league, so I thought I might recreate it with striping tape.

It wasn’t a huge success but overall I thought it was cool looking (from a distance). It turned out to be the same, general, kind of look? Similar? Well at least I tried! :D

I used Wet n Wild Disturbia which is an almost black nail polish with beautiful purple shimmer, (that doesn’t translate to the nails), and Orly Luxe, the best gold nail polish on record. (My record, in my head.)
