Challenge Bugs 1

I painted my base with 17 Peacock and added a dragonfly with acrylic paints. To make it a bit prettier I put some rhine-stones on the body and painted the wings with opalescent glitter.

This is I Love Nail Polish Sirène. This teal-y chrome shifts to blue, violet and red. It’s even more amazing in person! My swatch is three coats.

It is a little deeper and little dustier than Mermaids Tears – which makes it more finger-wearable for me. I know I should probably get rid of one of these, but I really can’t bear that right now! I just love this colour – it’s very soothing. And I need some of that in my life.

Colour Base + black

For the base layer I used a beautiful blue from Boots 17 called Catwalk Couture, it has a very slight shimmer to it, followed by a layer of Orly Galaxy Girl a stunning purply red with lots of blue shimmer that tied in nicely with the Catwalk Couture, followed by the last layer of a-england Lancelot a blackened red to tie in with the Galaxy Girl.

Gumdrops

Nicole by OPI That s What I Mint 1

Nicole by OPI That’s What I Mint is a teal texture. This is part of their Gumdrops collection, I don’t know why this wasn’t included in the original release of the Gumdrops but I found it at Target when they finally put out the display a while back. Is it just me or does anyone else wonder why this has “Mint” in the name…it’s not really minty at all o.O. The formula was good, it was nice and opaque and easy to apply. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

This is a gorgeous shimmery teal polish.  It has great application in two coats.  Isn’t it just beautiful?

Gradient  Zoya Wednesday Zuza and china glaze optical illusion 1

I’ve used two coats of Wednesday as a base and then did gradient tips with Zuza. That was not contrasting enough so I added gradient China Glaze Optical Illusion.

Hits Moonbow 2

Today I have an awesome multichrome glitter from Hits Phenomena Collection to show you guys! It’s Moonbow, which is my favorite of the 4! The Phenomena Collection is 4 multichrome glitters, they look a lot like the Ozotic Elytra polishes if you’ve seen those (528, 529 & 530).

Strippy McStrip Stripe Na...

This is my first time trying striping tape! I decided to get one from Born Pretty Store to see if we would get along and I’m pleased to report we’ve become good friends. I’ve purchased a set of ten rolls from eBay here for an absolute bargain of 99p so prepare for more stripy nails in the future.

Leaping leopards

I started off with a base of OPI My Vampire Is Buff and did the leopard print in Essie Where’s My Chauffeur? and Wet N Wild Wild Shine Red Red.  I sealed everything in with Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat.

Bond. James Bond.

Revlon Elusive 1

Revlon Elusive is a black base with blue glitter. This is another polish I picked up at Target not too long ago, I don’t think I’ve actually seen it anywhere else unless it’s just been sold out or something. I’m not sure if it was meant to be matte but it dried to a satin matte finish and I liked the way it looked so I added a matte top coat on top of it instead of a shiny one. The formula was good, it was nice and opaque and the black base didn’t hide the glitter which was nice. I used 2 coats for the photos below.
