NOTD Essie Starry Starry Night, now with matching earrings!

22 Nov

I love this! It is one of my favorite polishes of all time and I now have the matching earrings 🙂 They are made with the polish (how I have no idea!) and is bought from the lovely Tracey of GingerKittyDesigns. You can find her store on Etsy.

Now onto why I love this. Blue is my favorite color and paired with the gorgeous glitter – the silver glitter layered in the blue polish gives it a depth. It is semi-smooth and with another topcoat it might have been even more shiny, and with better application it could’ve been perfect.

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

Double NOTD – Color Club Wild at Heart and Sinful Fiji

14 Nov

My camera is back! Turns out my husband didn’t do a great job when he was searching for it and found it a pocket of his jacket yesterday. Next time I’m looking for it myself, not relying on others!

Any how, moving on. On the camera I found my NOTD of one of my new favorites, CC Wild at Heart. What a great polish! The pictures you see is 1 coat (I know!!) and it is perfection. It is the same great holo we’ve gotten used to from CC, but million times better than Fashion Addict (the light purple holo). It goes straight into my Top 20!

Coats: 2 Orly Armor, 1 Wild at Heart and 1 Nubar Diamont.

Second is Sinful Fiji. Pictures are not exactly accurat, hard polish to photograph – especially as sunlight and even daylight are scarce here at the moment. It is less foily and more purple in real life. It was only ok, very similar to OPI You Ottaware Purple in formula (thin) and opacity (not great). It also didn’t dry very well, the marks are from me putting on tousers about 3 hours after applying – still not dry! The tipwear is from shopping at Ikea…

Coats: 2 Orly Armor, 4 Fiji and 1 Nubar Diamont.

Missing camera…

2 Nov

So after some days away I was ready to post and raring to go. Only to find that my camera has gone missing… I have no idea where it is, and neither does dear husband who had his hands on it last. So no new NOTD just yet, need to take out the other camera and start the nail painting. Got some new polishes I want to show you as well, been some great weeks with lot’s of new pretties arriving in the post 🙂
