New Years Eve Holographic Tape Mani!

I am happy the sun is shining today yay! it has been raining for the last couple of days and I haven't been able to take any good swatch photos.

I decided to do a really fun mani today for new years eve, a tape mani with all holographic and glitter colors, I used OPI DS Sapphire, OPI DS Extravagance, China Glaze DV8, China Glaze LOL, China Glaze TMI, China Glaze L8R G8R & to top it off OPI Crown me already.

I am really happy how this mani turned out being my first tape mani it's not perfect but I think its a great first attempt.

I also took a couple of pics of just the holographic polishes before I added the glitter I like these too OPI DS Sapphire looks awesome it is one of the best holographic polishes I own.

Ivanka - Zoya Sparkle Collection

Wow I took these photos on Xmas day but didn't look at them until last night OMG I was amazed at how truly gorgeous Zoya Ivanka looks in these pics I am in love Ivanka is now my new favourite green. Also when looking at my swatches last night they reminded me so much of the emerald city from the Wizard Of Oz!

I don't normally wear my polishes many times as I swatch new polishes every day but I am going to have to work Ivanka into my nail art and stamping just so I can wear it a few more times!

Sinful Colors - All About You

I only grabbed two bottles of Sinful Colors when I was at Walgreens in November as by that stage my husband was really sick of nail polish shopping at was hurrying me every time I went into a drugstore. All About you is a gold glitter with flecks of red it photographed really well I am very impressed with both the Sinful Colors polishes I brought and will definitely be buying more next trip.

Pink Wednesday - Nubar Essence

I don't normally post colors from the same collection two days in a row but its pink wednesday and I am still running low on pink polishes even after receiving my xmas haul. Essence is a light metallic pink with holographic glitter I am not a huge fan of this color it is a bit too girly for me I prefer neon or bright pink polishes.

Nubar Prisms Collection Skittle Swatches!

I am totally addicted to holographic nail polishes and have wanted the Nubar Prisms collection ever since I saw the swatches on temptalia I know she only gave the collection a B rating but that didn't stop me from wanting them.

A couple weeks ago I was lucky enough to get ten of the very hard to find China Glaze OMG collection colors I did not know when I got these colors that they were going to ruin a lot of other holographic polishes for me, don't get me wrong the nubar prisms colors are very pretty but do not compare at all to the OMG collection.

My two favs from the nubar prisms collection are Absolute & Treasure, I will not be swatching the three brown holographic colors from this collection as I really don't like brown/taupe polishes and learnt my lesson after OPI DS Classic that they do not suit my skin color.

Thumb: Prize, Fingers: Treasure, Absolute, Brilliant & Essence.

Xmas Day Stamping!

I was so excited to get new Konad stamping plates for Xmas that I had to try them out straight away, in these pics I used Zoya Savita (Matte) with Sally Hansen Celeb City and the konad m84 stamping plate, I really love the stars, this image was the only reason I ordered the m84 plate but it was definitely worth it.

Thank ZOYA It's Xmas!

I decided to do this blog post as I had such a great experience ordering my xmas pressies during the Zoya flash promos this month that I ended up with a great haul of Zoya products in my xmas stash. I have to say the customer service at Zoya is absolutely fantastic I had to contact them once via live chat and they were really helpful and able to fix the issue straight away, I love that Zoya included so many color charts with my orders it was a really nice bonus and I have found a lot more colors to add to my wishlist!
