NOTD Orly Pixie Dust, and I’m back!

21 Jul

So having a little baby to take care of have so far kept me busy busy busy. But she is now going to bed around seven and sleeping through the night, which means I have some time to myself in the evenings. I will try and blog about two/three times a week, enjoy! And have a new blog design, fitting with pink when you have a little girl (who have not experienced the joy of polish yet, her dad would kill me if I put some on her…) Some of my posts that are coming in August are my nail wheels, am updating them now 🙂 Never counted my polishes but have at least 10 wheels I think.

On to the pictures, can’t really remember a lot about this polish other than I loved the grey and the sparkles, it was sunny when I took the pictures and that it was a multiple coater. But then again I am allergic to VNL…

January package from TD!

21 Jan

Am not on a no-buy, but on a one package a month buy. January’s package came from TransDesign and was a mix between polishes, gifts and mini treatments.
L to R: OPI Lincoln Park in the Dark (gift for friend), OPI Mad as a Hatter and Abseloutely Alice, Essie Mint Candy Apple, Orly Glosser and Bonder (minis), OPI  Thrill of Brazil (gift for my mom). And the bottom is a OPI Envy Express, mini treatments of OPI Nail Envy, Nail Maintanance and OPI Drip Dry drops.

The gorgeous glitter that is OPI Mad as a Hatter, from the January 2010 Alice in Wonderland collection.

The difference between an Orly mini and an OPI mini 🙂

Great mailing week!

NOTD Orly Glam

Orly Glam

As requested by avroys in the post about untrieds!

Am very sorry about my abscence, but life have once again gotten in the way of the swatching and have had no time to take any pictures or made any posts. Sorry, hope you my readers will be back 🙂

The Orly is an ok polish, like a poor mans option of Ruby Pumps (the ultimate red sparkle). In the bottle the sparkle looks silver, on the nail it becomes red – most likely because the base is red. And I needed 4 coats before it was opaque!

This is the first polish I tried Diamont on, love that it doesn’t pull the polish but I did have some problems with marks in the polish the day after I applied it. Will soon post a comparison post with SV and Diamont, putting them up against each other.

Hope the weather is nice where you are, here in eastern Norway we are having great summer weather at the moment 🙂

2 coats Orly Armor, 1 CND Stickey, 4 coats Glam, 1 coat Nubar Diamont.
