Blueberry Swirl

Blueberry swirl 4

I started off with two coats of China Glaze At Vase Value, followed by one coat of Seche Vite.

Using the polish brushes, I placed some random blobs of China Glaze Crimson and At Vase Value.

Using a plastic bag, I pressed it onto my nail and twisted it a bit to swirl the polishes.  I finished with one coat of Seche Vite.

Tip fix

Definite tip wear! So typically when this happens, I take the polish off and put a new one on… but I just wasn’t ready to part with Carly!

Blue Lagoon is another sheer one, again 4 coats and still a lot of VNL. This blue jelly polish is filled with aqua glitter, light blue holo glitter, and tiny silver glitter/shimmer. I can’t wait to layer this one over a dark blue!

Anyway just a quick swatch of Barry M Denim I did before I broke my nail. The important things to say about this polish is that it dries to a matte finish and the formula is uh-maz-ing.

Liquid Crystal Tips

I want to declare my love to Crushed Velvet from Diamond Cosmetics. It’s my fav dark purple creme, so smooth and dreamy… I love it to pieces! And with China Glaze – Liquid Crystal sponged on the tips I love it even more.

In The Universe

About the collection: All three colours are inspired by the gorgeous, sophisticated women entering the 2013 MISS UNIVERSE® competition, held November 9, 2013. “The colors are very glamorous – ideal for special occasions, a night on the town, or even being named the most beautiful woman in the world!”

OPI Miss You-niverse deep plum purple creme. Another gorgeous purple that I enjoyed wearing. The shade is rather blue-based and very dark, perfect for the winter season. It is well-pigmented and all I needed were two regular coats. I didn’t have any problems with application or drying and I’m wearing a topcoat as well.

Brazilian Rainbows!

OPI Brazil Textures Rainbow Nail Art Nailart009 

OK, you all know I love texture polishes so these shades included in the OPI Brazil collection were a treat. The only problem? They are minis :( I wanted to show off each shade while creating a fun nail design…take a look!

Royal blue

Blue nail polish

a-england, per usual, knocks it out of the park with Order Of The Garter.  It took 3 coats for a solid finish, but I don’t mind being that extra-layer-patient with something so beautiful — just look at that sparkle!

Deep Ocean Nails

China Glaze Towel Boy Toy

The base, which you can make out near the nail bed, is China Glaze For Audrey, which I’ll really need to use sometime all on its own because it’s just darling.  Then went in with a couple of makeup sponge rounds using China Glaze Towel Boy Toy

Intensity

Runway pearl 024

Dancing in the Sheets is a really dark purple with bright blue shimmer. The color is interesting, but the formula is what really wow-ed me. I barely needed any clean up, it flowed onto my nails perfectly in two coats.

Brrr…

Pretty & Polished Hybrid is a pale blue shimmer thermal that shifts to medium blue and then to purple when cold.  The formula was smooth and very easy to apply.  I absolutely love the triple shift in this one!   Shown is two coats of Hybrid.
