NOTD China Glaze Vampy

20 Oct

A vampy color for the vampy season, perfect color for autum. In these pictures you see the vampyness in the first picture and the gorgeous shimmer in the second. The dent I have no idea how got there, it just got there. Too bad I didn’t notice it when just got there as I could have used my Orly Smudge Fixer. It is still unused and that is not a bad thing, but hoped to try it 🙂

Coats: 2 Orly Armor, 2 Vampy and 1 Nubar Diamont.

NOTD OPI Ink

18 Oct

I got this in a swap and fell in love immediately. The beauty of the color is not shown entierly in these photoes, it has tons of beautiful purple and blue shimmer in a blue base. The shimmer is borderline glitter, it is big. The light is changing here, so I’m having a harder time getting good pictures – we’re getting closer to winter and that means shorter days and less time for gettting good pictures.

The polish is from the same collection as I Only Drink Champagne, Night Brights.

Coats: 2 Orly Armor, 3 Ink and 1 Nubar Diamont.

NOTD – OPI I Only Drink Champagne

12 Oct

Well I don’t only drink champagne (no alcohol at the moment…) but I love this polish! One of the few in my collection I’ve worn more than once (too many untrieds!) and this weekend it was for a special occasion. My sister celebrated her wedding and as this is her favorite so we both wore this on Saturday.

Polish is from OPI Night Brights from 2007 – same collection as My Private Jet is from. It is a suprisingly opaque golden champagne color with sparkly shimmer. The shimmer is mostly yellow/golden but in some lights you can see some blue and red shades – but it is very sparsly.

Coats: 2 Orly Armor, 2 IODC and 1 Nubar Diamont.

Wizard of Ooh Ahz

8 Oct

china-glaze-wizard-of-ooh-ahz-teaserBack by popular demand! The original collection came out many years ago and the original polishes are very hard to find. ChG have listened to their customers plees and am bringing it back. It will be out spring 2010 and I’m guessing all my fellow nailblogger will be hunting it down and e-tailers will sell out quickly…

Colors from left to right:
Ruby Pumps – jelly (core color and part of the christmas collection 08 and 09)
Cowardly Lyin’ – frost
The Ten Man – frost
Dorothy Who – jelly
C-C-Courage – frost
Good Witch – frost

I’m back!

5 Oct

So after a very long break I’m back and am using again 🙂  I’m sorry for the lack of posts, but sitting in front of a computer has been a challenge and as I work in front of one all day I’ve had no energy for anything else.
Had my first many the other day, Nubar Peacock Feathers. Sadly no picture, I’m terribly out of shape and it was not deemed good enough for broadcast. PF was very watery, and even with three coats it wasn’t perfect. And to top it of I had problems with shrinkage, only ever had that with SV before.

The picture is my new project, getting up to date with my nail wheels. Am hoping to finish real soon and posting the pictures – just hoping for sun.
