All the polishes are from Cherry Culture and was only $2, cheap and cheerful! Have not tried any yet, my untried list has grown lately and have over 30 I still haven’t tried or swatched 🙂 Will post a list of them later, maybe I have some you want to see?


NOTD OPI You Ottaware Purple + Chg Orange Marmalade Pedi

26 May

Purple OPI from the Canadian Collection fall 2004. I love purples and this is no exception. It took 4 coats to get close to bottle color, so a bit thin. The color a vivid medium purple, and it looks maroon/purplish on the first coat but gradually builds to a nice purple shimmer. (Please excuse the tip pull/wear, I’m working on eliminating it!)

2 coats Orly Armor, 1 coat CND Stickey, 4 coats polish, 1 coat SV.

Pedi after jump.

Shopping: Nubar polishes

25 May

Peacock Feathers, Diamont tc, Pasadena Purple

Nubar is one of the brands that you can’t get here in Norway where I live. I have been lemming these for so long, so was very happy when I found out that an e-tailer in Denmark sold these, Aromatique.
I am very pleased with the three I got, it might not be that obvious in the picture but Peacock Feathers is a gorgeous purple and green duochrome. I will write a review and a comparison of the tc later this week.

NOTD Essie Sexy Divide

10 May

I love this color! From my favorit color group purple comes this sexy Essie – far from their usual reds and sheers! It is part of the 2008 winter collection, all of the colors were dark, shimmery and beautiful! (NOTD pictures taken a couple of weeks ago, nails were shorter then).

The color is heavily pigmented, but due to my habit of dragging polish (not something you’d want to learn…) it took three coats to achieve opacity on the entire nail. But formula was ok and the skinny Essie brush is not to bad once you get used to it.

2 coats Orly Armour, 1 CND Stickey, 3 Essie SD, 1 SV.

Get the party started, some previous NOTDs
