Glitter In The Air!

Here we are! Finally got around to wearing this...

In natural light:

 In artificial light:

This was 2 coats, over 2 coats of OPI Bubble Bath. Next time I'll try it over something more opaque, but for now, I actually really like how this looks. The visible nail line ruins it slightly though!

Thanks for reading! Have a nice afternoon :)

The One That Slipped The Net

This is from a few days ago, when I forgot to update! This is Sexagon, a very light purple/silver holo. It's one of my favourites out of the set!

In artificial light:
In natural light:

This is an old photo, I think it's from when I was still living in uni halls, the holo shows up really nicely though :)
I just love it!

Thank you for reading, I'll be posting more photos of newer nails polishes that are actually still available soon, I promise! Sorry if I'm boring you all the hard to find ones instead.

China Glaze Ruby Pumps

Quite possibly my favourite nail polish ever!

In artificial light:
 In daylight (omg, it's actually sunny!)



Ruby Pumps has a red jelly base, with red glitter suspended in it. It's truly lovely. Red is most definitely my favourite colour, but I really love that this is a jelly too. It looks so shiny as squishy. And it perfectly matches the red cardi I'm making.

This is 2 generous coats, with Dior top coat. My bottle is going slightly goopy now as it's down to the very last bit, I'd usually do 3 thin coats.

Thanks for reading :)

Let's Do It In 3D

Let's Do It In 3D is a gun metal grey holo. And I really, really don't like it. It looks so nice in the bottle, but not on my nails.

It's rainy and overcast outside today, so these are in artificial light only:






It took me a while to work out why I didn't like it, and what it reminded me of...


That's all for now, hopefully I'm not boring you all with all my holo polishes!

How About A Tumble?

I'm home, I have all my nail polishes here so I'm going to be blogging more and posting more photos! Yay! I'm also thinking of getting some Konad and/or Bundle Monster stamping plates to play with soon.

Anyway, today's nail colour is China Glaze How About A Tumble from the Kaleidoscope collection. It's a gorgeous, cool toned pink. I really like this, really really. Please excuse the horrid bits of skin around my nails.

In artificial light:

I used Nubar Diamont Shine topcoat, which was a bad move. It dulled down the holographic-ness of it and it's started peeling off already! Next time I think I'll just forget the top coat.

Miscellaneous ranting...

Argh.

I ordered my Deborah Lippmann polish after all, it arrived, it is beautiful. Worth all the pennies I spent on it and more. I ordered some nail polish from feelunique.com to go under it so I could use it as a topcoat, seen as the other half of my collection is at home. After an entire weekend wondering where it was, my mum sent me a text to say it's back at home. I have changed my postage address on there so many bloody times, and they still can't get it right!

Also, I've been using OPI Nail Envy Matte for a week now and my nails are even worse than when I started. I wanted to try it out because my thumb nails keep breaking, but now I have nails that are breaking and peeling to boot, but I'll go into more detail with photos another day. To say it cost £18.99 I'm pretty appauled with it. I think I'm going to start doing proper reviews too, just for fun. I've had so many nail varnish failures recently it's not funny.

In other news, I really really really want to try out some Zoya polishes. I have none, I'm sorely tempted to get some posted over from an American website, they're only $6 but they're £9 a bottle here. Insane!

Well, er... That's all for now. The new series of the Apprentice is calling! Goodnight,

Glitter in the Air?

Firstly, I need to say that I am in so much pain right now. My brother was swinging on his chair at the dining table this evening and all 11 stone of him (plus chair) came crashing straight down on my little toe! I have never screamed so much in my entire life. It hurts so much and it happened like an hour ago... :( Also, I'm going back to Geordie land tomorrow because I have some exams, not really looking forward but it's only for two weeks. At least the Scouse gob-shite (flatmate that I don't like) has already left! Which makes things slightly better.

Anyway, moving on... Deborah Lippmann - Glitter in the Air.

I've wanted this for so long. I've heard it's got really bad application problems but when people get it right it looks so nice that I just had to have it.

It is a really sheer, barely there baby blue with baby blue and baby pink glitter. There are tons of photos where people have layered it over baby pink and baby blue nail polish and it looks gorgeous! 


I haven't paid for it *yet* though, just waiting to see how much postage is but if it's too much and I can't get it I will be so disappointed.
