Celestial body

Monochrome texture

The base is OPI Incognito in Sausalito and then I use hole reinforcers once the base is dry and I added OPI Kiss Me At Midnight.

I’ve applied two coats of OPI Wharf! Wharf! Wharf! from the San Francisco collection. Then I’ve used OPI Pussy Galore for the pink dots. It took a while to dry because I couldn’t use topcoat but then the manicure lasted for four days without chipping.

Wing Dust Waking Dream Swatch 2

Wing Dust Waking Dream is a dark purple jelly with pink, red and silver glitter, including hexes, circles, stars, and tiny hair glitter. It also has a very subtle shimmer, but it’s not very noticeable on the nails. I do love how dark and dreamy this one is – a classic Wing Dust! Application was good, but I recommend two coats of top coat (or Gelous) to smooth out the glitter. This was 3 coats.

Day of the Doctor

 Day of the doctor nail art 01

For the base colour I chose a polish that fits the theme perfectly… Cult Nails Time Traveler – a polish named after the Doctor’s big blue box

On my ring and pinky fingers, I stuck some 1 mm flat backed pearls and painted them copper to look a bit like Daleks!

My index finger is painted with Essie As Gold as it Gets and stamped with W7 Black and a design from MoYou London Plate Pro Collection 10. This is meant to look a bit like The Master’s fob since this is a piece of imagery that really stood out to me back in the days when I used to watch the show. Wasn’t The Master a brilliant character?!

The galaxy nails were created using a couple of polishes including the holographic polishes A-England Rose Bower and Princess Sabra.

Today I have more polishes to show you from Wing Dust Collections! I am finding myself falling in love with this brand; the polishes are beyond beautiful and they apply so smoothly. They are unlike any indie polish I know because they don’t require any dabbing or fishing for glitters – you can apply these polishes like a regular polish, and they turn out beautifully. The polishes I am showing you today are from their summer collection, but they are going to be restocked in mid-November, so you’ll have a chance to pick these beauties up.

First up is Pool-side Par-tay, a beautiful blue polish that looks perfect for winter as well.

Let’s take a moment to drool at this beauty! Pool-side Par-tay is a royal blue packed with varying blue, silver, and holographic glitters in different sizes, as well as a copper microshimmer. All of the glitters were suspended perfectly in the base and required no fishing – above is three smooth coats, no dabbing necessary!

Different Dimension This Is Not Fir 2

Different Dimension This Is Not Fir is a green jelly with silver and green circle, square and hex glitter throughout. This is nice layered or on it’s own. I used it on its own for my swatch but I think next time I’ll layer it, I think it would probably look great over China Glaze Holly Day! The formula was good, it is a little sheer on it’s own but builds to be opaque in 3 coats.

Hey guys! Today I have a some polishes to show you from Wing Dust Collections, a Canadian indie brand with beautiful unique polishes that will make your jaw drop! They are packed with glitter and amazing color combinations, and I love them. These polishes are from the Fall 2013 collection, which will be available on November 18th.

Did I not warn you about how beautiful these polishes are?! Muskoka Sunset is a bright purple crelly filled with bright pink, orange, periwinkle and lavender glitters that suspend perfectly in their base. This polish truly looks like a beautiful sunset, and it is so unique. Shown above is three coats, no fishing or dabbing required.

20131009 charme lacquers time square

Times Square is a bright blue shimmer filled with holo hexes and dots. The glitters are buried in the base, but it’s a beautiful effect. I placed three round neon studs in a row at each cuticle.  (2 coats polish, 1 coat topcoat)

First up is my favorite from the collection, Beauty Queen. Guys, there is nothing better than a polish done right, and trust me, this polish is done right. It’s a smooth black jelly filled with gold, silver, and pink holographic hex glitters and holographic silver circles. Would you believe this is just one coat over black? Look at how much depth is in this polish! And not only did it require no fishing, but it applied like butter by far the easiest application I’ve dealt with in a long time.

Serum No 5 Love Preview 1

Serum No. 5 Love, Preview is a black base with various sizes of gold glitter. This also glows bright blue in the dark! This is such a great representation of all the gorgeous polishes Victoria makes, it’s beautiful in every kind of light and I really enjoy the glow in the dark! The formula was good, it was easy to apply and opaque in 2 coats.
