Love Actually

 Smitten polish you saucy minx barry m indigo glossy 002

I personally experienced VNL with both these polishes.  Now this could be because the whites of my nails are quite white, or it could be because the bottle is new, and will thicken up and therefore become more opaque in time …. Anyway – that’s why for the first polish, you’ve got it with and without top coat and with and without undies.  Ready?

Smitten Polish You Saucy Minx – on a base of Barry M Indigo, with top coat

CrowsToes Dragon In Drag 3

CrowsToes Dragon in Drag is a glitter topper full of various sizes and shapes of blue, green and gold glitter. This is my favorite of the collection, it looks all under the sea over blue! The formula was a little thick but very glitter dense and easy to apply. I used 1 coat over Misa Winter Bluesy Blues for the photos below.

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may have seen the EPIC nail mail I received from Barbra at ILNP awhile back. It’s no secret that I literally squeal over her polishes. Every creation is more fabulous than the last. I’ve been soooo backed up with swatch commitments and I knew the holidays would slow me down…so Barbra knew it may be some time before they made their appearance on WPP. But it’s been KILLING me to see all of these ILNP pretties just sitting there…waiting to be tried. I was looking at all the bottles lined up in a row and loved how four shades looked together. I took a cue from the Manicurator (who has done swatch posts with one matching accent nail) and put everything together in today’s post. All of these shades are STILL available in the ILNP store.  :)

I Love Nail Polish Molly…wow. You’re probably tired of hearing me say how much I like berry shades of polish. Add some ultra-sparkly holo and I’m sold. The finish is absolutely gorgeous! This one makes my heart melt. LOL.

Super Black Lacquers 3rd Degree is a rich, blood-orange with a golden shimmer and an almost metallic finish. Application was amazing with this polish. Does that ever happen to you? Where you use a polish and you think “Wow. This is dreamy.” LOL. Well that happened with this one.

 FUN Lacquer Christmas 2013 Wishing Star007

How lucky I am to be able to show you some FUN Lacquer today!! I’d been admiring the Princess Collection from afar so when I was offered the chance to review the Christmas collection I jumped at it. I’m pleased with every single one of them! Let’s take a look! 

FUN Lacquer Wishing Star a yellow thermal polish with gold shimmer. A bright sunshine yellow in it’s cold state, and it’s an icy pale yellow with shifts from gold, to green to blue when it’s warm. Three coats needed with this one for opacity. I couldn’t resist showing off Wishing Star with Decentber tips. Such an unconventional french, right?

Answer do

Daisies

For these I started off with a base of MASH – Black, then I used acrylic paint for the white flowers and dots, and then I used Butter LONDON – Jasper for the yellow centres of the flowers, all topped off with a coat of Seche Vite.

 Glam Polish Tinker Bell – a bright lime base packed with silver chrome shimmer. Very fun!

The Queen

 Ob 138372 triple darling diva combo 4

Today’s manicure incorporates three beautiful Darling Diva polishes from the Queen inspired collection (reviewed here). All three are duochromes with holographic particles in them so it’s given that they look stunning. I have used a striping tape to help me get straight lines and Seche Vite topcoat to seal the design. The shades used are: Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Bohemian Rhapsody and Killer Queen.

China Glaze Put a Bow On It is made up of fuchsia microglitter. This is two thick coats and if you look closely, you can still see some bare spots near the tips of my nails. I would recommend either layering this over a similar base color or doing three careful coats.

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!
