Testing out Turn Your Toes Teal...

Look at this cute polish! 

What an epic colour!

This polish is created by Ovarian Cancer Awareness NZ. Each bottle is $10. More info about buying these can be found on the Ovarian Cancer Awareness NZ Facebook page. 

Look at how cutely (is that a word?) it was packaged! 

This polish is smaller than my usual size. I'd say about 7.5ml (which is the size of maybelline and China Glaze mini's).
The brush is a pretty standard small brush: 

The colour is so lovely! 
This is a shear polish, I'd say it's a crelly (?) - it's quite sheer and jelly like with a slight milky-cream-like-ness to it... 
This is one coat (looks yuck just one coat!) 

Looks heaps better with two-thick to three coats:
This is just overall a lovely polish. To be fair I don't have many jelly polishes or sheer creams come to that. I think I will actually get a lot of use with this. 
I can't wait to try a jelly sandwich with this one! 

Isn't it beautiful? 

Hope you enjoyed my photo-spam.

Boyfriends-Choice: PSYCH!

So one of my favouritest favourite shows is psych! 
For those who haven't seen it watch it! For those who have you will understand the pineapple reference... I remember reading somewhere that they "hide" a pineapple in every episode- what fun! 
We watched the latest episode this afternoon, so the boyfriend suggested psych nails! 

I used China Glaze: Solar Power and Tree Hugger for the pineapples. 

Do you like them? 
Do you like psych too!? 





Boyfriends-Choice: Playstation nail art!

Finally got around to posting these.... 

I was pretty impressed with myself over these. 
I asked MyLove what to paint on my nails- and this was his suggestion...

My Facebook followers would have seen this sneak peak photo already... 

But here's more. And my favourite nail, my thumb, with the classic Play Station One logo...


What are your thoughts? 
I think I might need to make this a regular thing... Boyfriends-choice-Monday....

Gradient stripes

One of my favourite designs at the moment!!

To be honest I am positing this so late and cannot remember if I did the gradient first for the striping tape first. 
Next time I do a design like this I'll try to make a tutorial...



What are your thoughts? 
would you be interested in a tutorial for this?

Swatch // Cult Nails : Morning Glory

Oh my goodness I love this polish!!

For those of you who know me well, know I LOVE pink. It is my favourite colour for just about everything! (Orange is a very close second)

So when one of my polish friends was destashing this beauty I just had to grab it! 

Introducing Cult Nails- Morning Glory
The colour is AMAZING!! 
This is everything I could want in a hot pink polish! 
The formula was smooth, consistent and super opaque!
It actually dries a little matte (the photo is on plastic nail enhancements) and with a top coat it's super dooper shiney!!!

What are your thoughts?
