OPI The Show Must Go On!

Hi guys! Today I wanted to show you a polish I've been eyeing for a while but it has been quite hard for me to find. This is OPI's The Show Must Go On from their Burlesque Holiday collection a few years ago! This is a supposed dupe for MACs Bad Fairy.

It's a pink and orange foil duochrome and I really love it. If there's two colours of nail polish I don't gravitate toward it's pink and orange but I totally love this polish.

Ofcourse duochrome is my cameras least favourite finish to photograph so bear with me!

Essie A Crewed Interest!

Hi guys! So I recently recieved this Essie polish in a swap and I'm really loving it so I wanted to give you a quick look! This is A Crewed Interest. It is a super light peach colour that deffinately gives a neautral/nude work appropriate look.
I love it! I've read online that many people had formula issues with this polish but I didn't. It's possible it's previous owner may have thinned it, I don't know, but I did two fairly thick coats and it turned out lovely!

Thanks For Reading!
Have you had any polishes that you''ve heard are horrible to apply but work well for you?

Ruffian: OPI Designer De Better & Mermaids Tears

Hi guys! Today I wanted to do a ruffian inspired by Coewless which is probably one of my favourite blogs, but it isn't in english so I just ooogle over her gorgeous nails!

Anyway I remember seeing this combo ages ago but after I had done it I went back to go check and Coewless actually did a half-moon manicure which looked a lot better. Anyway. It was fun to give it a go!

Don't you think this design makes my nails look fat! lol

I free handed this ruffian so be nice!
Polishes used are OPI Designer De Better and OPI Mermaids Tears

China Glaze Caribbean Blue

Hi guys! Today I wanted to show you one of my old favourite polishes from China Glaze! This one is called Caribbean Blue and it came out with their Bahama Blues collection in 2008.
It's a sky blue packed with silver micro glitter giving it a quite unique finish.
This is two easy coats!

I love re-visiting old favourites!
Have you re-discovered any goodies lately?

A-England Bridal Veil

Hi guys! So today I wanted to try out another A-England product I recieved a few months back. This one is from their Legend collection and it's called Bridal Veil.
I was a little dissapointed when I got this polish as I was hoping it would be a bit more holographic, but it is still very pretty and I really enjoyed wearing it. I used one coat.

Are there any polishes you've picked up thinking they were holo but ended up being a bit disapointed

Essie No More Film

Hi guys! Today I wanted to show you a polish I recently picked up from this years Resort Collection by Essie. This is No More Film. No More Film is a dark creme blurple which to me leans a bit more blue than purple.
It applied nicely, requiring two coats for full opacity.

Did you pick anything up from Essie's resort collection this year?

Deborah Lippmann Just Dance over OPI Fly

Hi guys today I wanted to show you my new favourite polish! This is Deborah Lippmann Just Dance! It's a bright blue / turquoise glitter that is so super shiny! I decided to layer it over OPI Fly from the Nikki Minaj collection released earlier this year.

I used two coats of just dance over Fly. If you wanted to wear it on its own you would need three coats probably. The glitter applied evenly and I didn't need to "place" the glitter on.

Trust me, these pictures don't even do justice to how beautiful this is in real life!

Flakie Layering! With NFU-OH #520 & #50

Hi guys! I recently posted about Crush Cosmetics now carrying Nfu Oh Polishes. While they don't have the whole range they do have some of the favourites inclusing Nfu Oh #51 which I paid ebay prices for before Crush started carrying the line. 

So I picked up a couple of them! This is Nfu Oh #520 from their creme collection. It's a medium blue toned purple. A little on the thick side and prone to streaking unless you get the exact right amount on the brush. It's a bit of a pain to apply but I'm going to try adding thinner before I decide I don't like the formula.

I then decided to layer #50 over it. #50 is a blue/green shift flakie topcoat in a sheer pink base.

Thanks for Reading!

OPI Germany Collection Fall 2012: My Picks

Hi guys! So I'm back with nail posts YAY! My skin has healed almost entirely which is what was damaged in my "accident" involving fingers and a car door lol and all the bruising has gone down.

Anyway, I thought I'd start off with the couple of polishes I picked up from OPI's Germany Collection! 

Every Month Is Oktoberfest.
This is beautiful deep purpley shimmery vampy goodness poured into a bottle.
I think it looks more red in the bottle, but on the nails it's deffinately purple with a few red and gold specks.
Two effortless coats!

This is another awesome colour! It's a reddish brown shimmer which on me looks like it even flashes an orangey colour in some lights. Beautiful.
Easy two coats for full coverage!

Thanks for reading guys! 
Did you pick up anything from OPI Germany collection??

My Sugarpill Collection Swatches!

Hi guys, today I thought I'd show you my sugarpill collection. Why? because it's beautiful! 

I keep all my sugarpill eye shadows in a Large Z-Palette. I used a sugarpill sticker and black piece of card to cover the see through plastic because I feel it looks neater :) Sugarpill eyeshadows magnetise automatically to the z-palette.

 Top Row: Love +, Flamepoint, Acidberry, Tako, Poison Plum
Middle: Buttercupcake, Mochi, Afterparty, Midori
Bottom Row: Poison Plum (Yes I Have Two), Velocity, Dollypop

I got most of my eyeshadows in their palette form which you can see here, But a few were from compacts which are really easy to de-pot :)
Please excuse the nicks in some of the shadows, that's what happens when you re-arrange them with long nails lol
