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 :)

Sinful Colors Cream Pink

Hi :)

Sinful Colors Cream Pink looks dark pink in the bottle but when you put it on your nails, it’s actually a light, neon pink! When I put it on, it dried slightly matte, and I thought maybe it was meant to be a matte polish, like Savage, but when I walked by the window I realised it was neon!

It’s not eye searingly bright, it’s a little neon, a baby neon. If you think neon is too much for you but you want to dip your toe in the neon water, then this might be perfect for you. It also has beautiful gold shimmer. This would be perfect with a tan and it was so pretty that I wore it alone.

Essence Who is Mr Brown? and Gold Foil

Happy Easter!

Hope you all enjoyed the long weekend, we got some sun here finally and it was so nice. :)

I was trying to think of an Easter themed mani all weekend because I’m trying to follow the prompts on the #NAILLINKUP, (and because it’s Easter :P),

Naillinkup-april-2015

 

but I couldn’t think of anything! Then, yesterday, I was eating my chocolate Easter egg and playing with the gold foil and thinking how nice the foil would be on my nails and I realised I have nail foil! So at the last minute I had this idea to do chocolate colored nails and then put some gold nail foil over it :)

Nail foils are so pretty but they are temporary because they either go dull, wrinkle or just wear away almost immediately. I took these pics straight after I put on the foil but they were wrinkled about an hour later and had half of my jumper stuck to them by dinner time. (Because of the glue you use to adhere the foil to your nails – it’s very sticky! :)

Anyway! Here are my Easter nails a.k.a. a gold foil covered chocolate Easter egg!

Binky Gold Rush

Hi :)

This is Binky Gold Rush, a lovely pale gold texture polish. I already posted the pink and purple texture polishes from Binky and said how much I like the formula, that the polishes are really pretty and that they are a great price at four euro.

However, while wearing this pretty polish today, it did not hold up well. I spent about an hour cleaning and about half the polish came off. I was really disappointed because I planned on collecting all the Binky’s but I think I may leave the rest of them on the shelf.

Because I change my polish at least twice a week, wear time isn’t high on my priority list, but I need to be able to wash the dishes! If the polish can’t last that long then it really isn’t worth wearing at all. It’s a shame because I really do like the polish!

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

Sinful Colors Kissy

Hi :)

I kept on theme after St Patrick’s Day and wore another green. I found this fabulous green polish, with green and gold glassfleck, in Dealz/Poundland!

I actually found a pile of Sinful Colors, if I’m honest, the chap at the till looked really confused. Do any of you get weird looks when you buy a lot of nail polishes? (Do any of you buy nail polish in bulk? I can’t be alone here!)

This is two coats, the finish was gorgeous!

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:

444.3 Wet n Wild Under Your Spell and Catrice The Hunstman

 

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.

#Conflicted #NeverNude

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

IsaDora Bronze Patina

Hi :)

IsaDora Bronze Patina is a dark brown polish with tiny gold glassflecks that give it a lovely gold glint. I was very surprised that I liked this polish as much as I did. I usually don’t like brown polishes and it looked a bit dull in the bottle, but the lovely shimmer of the gold against the dark brown drew me in.

I liked the gold in the polish so much that I wanted more, so I added some gold leaf. I didn’t plan to apply it so randomly, but handling gold leaf is like trying to grasp smoke. I liked the random placement afterwards because the gold leaf was very reflective and the light would catch each finger at a different time, making typing more fun that usual. :) (If looking at your nail polish is fun, which it is!)

P.s. sorry for the mess around the cuticles, I switched back to Seche Vite topcoat and sometimes it will shrink the polish like this :/
