I love this blue (if you read my blog you’ll know how much!). A delicate cornflower creme blue perfect for spring. It is an old Misa, I could find any info about it and it’s not in their core collection (according to their website, http://www.misacosmetics.com). And it’s a lovely light creme perfect for the coming season! Picture is taken quite some time ago so can’t remember much about the application – other than I’ve done it in the dark (at least it looks like it!)
Coats: 1 coat OPI Nail Envy, 1 coat Orly Bonder, 3 coats Misa and 1 coat Nubar Diamont.

One of my favorite polishes of 2010. I found it on the counter at a hairdresser, and having wanted it for a long time I got it. The price was mad, and reminded me of why I seldom buy polishes here when I can get them from overseas.
It is from the fall collection, and part of the new more colorful (meaning less pink and red) road that Essie is taking – I like it. This muted green reminds me of army green. The shimmer is very subtle, so from afar and in this picture you can’t see it. This was my New Years mani, not very festive but it went well with my outfit and I had just bought it and had to try it! It was a very easy to apply, and very saturated – only two coats. Also taken with my iPhone camera, so not the best picture and maybe a bit lighter in the picture than in real life.
Coats: 1 coat OPI Nail Envy, 1 coat Orly Bonder, 2 coats SP, 1 coat Nubar Diamont and OPI Rapid Dry spray.
Light: Inside, Downlight.
Camera: iPhone 4.
It’s finally mine! 509 was quickly sold out and some stores didn’t get it so I missed out on it. Then my mom found it at Munich airport before christmas. She tried it and decided that it was more my colour than hers. And that is fine by me 🙂
I also found some NOTD pictures while organising my photoes yesterday, so have 3 new posts coming up this week.
So first mani of the year on the blog is my Christmas mani. My favorite red ever this one, from the Christmas 2009 collection. It is still available, but not part of the core collection. I say it again – I LOVE THIS! It is a very saturated red, this is two coats. I used my iPhone to take this picture, and it turned out ok – but I find that it is very up and down.
This is also one of my Top 20 polish favorites, check out my Top 20 page.

I know I keep pushing this list on to you, but just want to see if there is anything my readers would want to see. But if you don’t have any preferences I’ll be fine picking my next mani myself 🙂
As you see there are a lot of changes here from my previous untrieds list. Some have been manis, some pedis, some I’ve liked, some not so much and some are still untried. But I haven’t blogged about all of them. Will try and do better!
So you thought I’d disappeared? I’m still here, but my nails are seriously neglected… And so is the blog as well, so was very pleased to find the WordPress app for iPhone. The iPhone’s not got the best camera, but at least there will be more chance of me blogging.
But on to the main attraction. The lovely glitter you see is the Rescue Beauty Lounge Look Rich be Cheap. I got it in the annual half price sale they have, still expensive but so worth it!
It is a gold and purple glitter in a clear base. This was four layers, with two topcoats for shine.
Picture is taken in Instagram, my new favorite app- so colors on skin are a bit weird but you see the glitter. In real life you see a bit more purple.
