NYC Hudson Breeze and Rimmel Pop Art! Topcoat and Jamberry

Hi again everyone! :)

Let’s just pick up where we left off: (and ignore the long absence!)

This is NYC Hudson Breeze, a gorgeous bright blue, and for extra fun, I added a coat of Rimmel Pop Art! glitter.

The accent nail is a free sample, from the fabulous Kami at Jamberry nail wraps. You can find them, and her, here!

Jamberry is now available in the UK guys! I cannot wait to finally get my hands on a full set, they are the best nail wraps I have ever tried! Yay! *mini happy dance*

Essence On Air! and Rimmel Midnight Mistletoe (Glitter Bomb)

Hi :)

On Air! is one of the new gel polishes from Essence. I’ve tried a few of the new gel polishes and they are fantastic! They are so smooth and shiny. They look like they have a great squishy layer of topcoat built in!

There’s also a new base and topcoat, I haven’t tried them but I will! I have to now because I can’t believe the difference in the gel polishes, I really love the formula so much! I wore polish without a topcoat for the first time in my life, that’s how great they look.

I also found another Rimmel Glitter Bomb, called Midnight Mistletoe; which is a red, green and holographic polish. The Glitter Bomb’s are really pretty and I put the two together and ended up with Christmas mani in May :)

Maybelline Purple Dazzle

Hi :)

Maybelline Purple Dazzle is a purple jelly polish with pastel pink, purple and blue glitter and tiny pink and green glitter. It’s so colourful! It’s looks like you put the worlds prettiest sprinkles inside a bowl of jelly. So sparkly and squishy! :D

I posted the blue version of this last week, Skyline Blue, I love them both. (Ok I love the purple one a bit more, OK a lot more! But shhhhh! Don’t let the blue one know, it’ll hurt his feelings.)

I loooove jelly polishes with glitter! Actually I’ve posted a bunch of them, like this one, or this one, or this one, or this one or this one and I love them all! (Not equally though…shhhh!)

Ciate Candy Cane

Hi :)

I got one of those Ciate Tree Trinkets for Christmas. It’s a lovely little gift. It’s a clear plastic bauble that you can hang on the Christmas tree and it has a mini nail polish inside. It’s made for polish lovers right?

Except that Ciate apparently stole a nail polish blogger’s original idea. Then sold it as their own and sent legal paperwork to the bloggers who created or used the nail idea which ordered them to stop posting said nail idea, because it now belonged to Ciate. You can read more about it here, here and here, if you’re interested in the details. :/

There was a widespread boycott of all Ciate products because of this. I have enjoyed a few free mini polishes that were given away with magazines but I never purchased one because they really went too far.

This all happened long before I was a blogger, and although I have very few original ideas, (damn you Pinterest!), if I did have one then I would be reeeeallly upset to have a huge nail polish company take it and order me to stop doing it! and then make a huge profit off my idea!

So I love my gift and the polish is really pretty but I just can’t purchase any Ciate products. They just went. too. far.

Sinful Colors Savage and L.A. Colors Confetti!

Hi :)

 

EDIT: Thanks to the girls on reddit! The name of the glitter is L.A. Colors Confetti :D

 

I need your help today! I don’t know the name of the glitter I used below, and I’m hoping one of you lovelies might recognize it :)

I bought a bottle of glitter, I think it was an american brand like Wet n Wild, and I dropped it and the bottle broke! I always keep an empty bottle of basecoat/topcoat in my dresser for just such an emergency, (a tip I picked up on MUA), and I poured what I could save into the empty OPI bottle and binned the broken bottle without checking the name!

Now I can’t remember the name or the brand! I was so busy trying to clean it up that I never wrote it down. :/ (P.s. there’s still a circle of glitter on my carpet – I kinda like it though! :)

The other polish is Sinful Colors Savage, one of polishes I hauled from Dealz, and it’s a really pretty green and it dried matte to my surprise! :)

Here’s a pic of the glitter, not in it’s original bottle, (it’s definitely not OPI), anyone? Any guesses? :)

It’s got red, gold, pink, silver and green glitter (the same colour as Savage.)

Orly Beach Cruiser and Born Pretty Store Neon Pink Glitter

Hi :)

Now that we finally have some sunshine here, I want to wear neon! I love neon nails, they look so vivid in the sun. Do you wear neon in the Summer? I get a lot of comments when I wear neon, not all of it positive! (So rude!)

I put on two coats of Sinful Colors Snow Me White, the best white nail polish I have ever used, then put striping tape down the middle of my nail and added a thick coat of Orly Beach Cruiser on one side.

Beach Cruiser photographed a bit darker than it is in person but it’s so difficult to capture neon, especially in the Sun. The camera reacts like my cat when I’m trying to give it medicine, “No! NO! NO!“.

Then I added some round neon pink glitter from BornPrettyStore.com. The glitter is 1.68 euro and they do free worldwide shipping AND this code will get you a further 10% off, which makes it a bargain in any language! :)

Maybelline Skyline Blue

Hi :)

Maybelline Skyline Blue is really gorgeous in person, but quite hard to photograph, the colour is so vibrant and the glitter so reflective; but that doesn’t translate to the pictures.

It’s a blue jelly polish with lots of blue, silver and tiny pink glitter.

It looks like a clear blue sea with sparkling gems at the bottom. I really enjoyed wearing it, it sparkled something fierce in the sun :)

This is two coats of Skyline Blue and two coats of NYC Grand Central Station topcoat.

Barry M Prickly Pear, Essence Cinderella The Glass Slipper and Bornprettystore.com pastel studs

Hi :)

One of the free samples Bornprettystore sent me was this fab little pot of different size studs. The colours are so pretty, they’re a mix of neon and pastel. I thought when I saw them on the website that they were all neon, but when I got them and saw that half of them were pastel, I knew I had to do a look for the #NAILLINKUP. (Click the image to go to CraftyNail’s website where you can find out more :)

Naillinkup-april-2015

I used Barry M Prickly Pear, one of the Gelly polishes, and the new Essence Cinderella glitter topper called The Glass Slipper.

The Essence is jam packed with pink/purple glassfleck and silver glitter and it’s soo freakin pretty. In the bottle the polish looks green too but that doesn’t show up on the nail.

Then I added a few of the pastel pink studs at the cuticle. I love adding one stud to the top of the nail, it’s so simple but completely changes the entire look.

Born Pretty Store Gold Glitter, Gold Cat and Essie Licorice

Hi :)

BornPrettyStore.com sent me more free samples! Hurray! This time I have some amazing gold glitter and some gold cats! I’ve already posted a few items from their website and I think their products are great quality and the prices are so low! Plus they do free worldwide delivery. AND they gave me a 10% off code that you can use – I do love a discount code! (Does anyone else Google discount codes before they buy online? You should!) I love everything they’ve sent me so far and I’ve picked out some more stuff myself, they sell evvverything! :)

The #12 gold glitter is gorgeous, it comes in a nice big pot so there’s plenty. It’s a rich, bright, gold colour and it’s really sparkly. It glows like it’s real gold! (I wish!)

The 3D cat is the same colour gold and it’s super cute! It has a little rhinestone on it’s tail! You get five, so order two packets if you want one for every finger :)

Here they are together with Essie Licorice; The glitter is loose, so I painted my ring finger with one coat of topcoat and dipped it into the pot of glitter while it was still wet. Then I brushed off the excess with a fan brush and then added two more coats of topcoat. I have to do a full mani with just this glitter! So glowy o.O

Here’s a better angle of the Cat, isn’t she so cute! Look at her little paws and ears! :D (Can you tell I’m a cat lady?)
