NOTD: Glitzology - Raspberry Beret

Hi all!

A pink Glitzology to show you lovelies today.

I started with 2 coats of Nails Inc Malibu Cosmo. A purple/pink creme.

Then 2 coats of Raspberry Beret - this is a clear base with a flakie like shimmer that has a pearlescent effect. It shimmers pinks, blues and purples. Add to that pink glitter and square flakies. The flakies again have the pearlescent quality with pinks, blues and purples. It's quite similar to Pixie Dust, very delicate.

Today I decided to paint my accent nails with Nails Inc Hyde Park Gate and add a little gingerbread man to continue the festive theme.

Do you like them?

NOTD: Glitzology - Corset & Fishnets

Hi all!

Today's Glitzology polish is Corset & Fishnets.  I'm not too sure what inspired Stacy to call it this but for me it reminds me of something from The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

After 2 coats of A England Avalon I layered 2 thin coats of Corsets & Fishnets.
This is a dark jelly base full of black glitter, black bar glitter, grey glitter and to make it pop purple glitter and shredded purple foil.

Add to this the fact that I'm continuing my Christmas themed nails throughout the month so added 2 accent fingers of Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

He looks suitably evil/jolly at the same time... yes?

NOTD: Glitzology - Nebula

Hi all!

Today I'm showing you Glitzology - Nebula.

I have put 2 coats of Nebula over 2 coats of Nails Inc Windsor (from the Royal Collection released April 2011 for the Royal Wedding).

If ever you were wanting to do a galaxy mani then this is the polish for you, without all the faffing of sponging different colours etc...

A clear base, packed to the brim with shimmer! blues, purples, greys, silvers, all jammed in there! Add to that square and hex glitters AND once more silver stars. This is a polish made in heaven!

Check out all the galaxy glittery goodness!!

NOTD: Glitzology - Robots in Love

Hi all!

Today's Glitzology polish is Robots in Love.  

I started with 2 coats of Face of Australia You Blue Me Away which you can see just peeping through with the flash pictures.

Robots in Love is a clear base full of silver shimmer and holographic silver micro glitters.  To top it off there are stars and heart glitters! 

I used 2 coats of each polish and there was no fishing required to get the hearts or stars from Robots in Love, it was just a case of placing them where I preferred.

Couldn't resist adding some little penguin dudes.

Check out this glitter bomb!

And that sparkle!

NOTD: Glitzology - Starry Night

Hi all!

Another beautiful Glitzology polish today - Starry Night. I think this is one of my favourite because a) it's blue and b) star shaped glitters.

I started with 2 coats of Essence - Let's Get Lost. This is a lovely smooth polish. I used 2 thin coats to even it out but 1 would have been fine if I didn't have such small nail beds.

To this I added 2 coats of Starry Night, a clear base full of deep blue micro shimmer that gives the base a navy look. Add to this blue micro glitters, silver holographic hexes and twinkling stars. This polish is AMAZING!

And keeping with the Christmas theme I went with some reindeer. Of course you all recognise Rudolph with his pretty, oh so red nose. But I've also featured one of his lesser known chums - Chet. (This will only make sense if you've seen The Santa Clause 3 and if you haven't seen it then you must! It's brilliant!)

For these lil dudes I used Nails Inc - Fashion Fawn (appropriate name) then some Models Own Nail Art Pens as well as Essence - Kiss On Top Of The Rock for Rudolph's nose.

Who's your favourite Christmas character?

NOTD: Glitzology - All or Nothing

Hi all!

Another Christmas/Glitzology themed mani today. This time featuring Essie - Where's My Chauffeur? and some pretty snowflake stickers.

I used Glitzology All or Nothing over 2 coats of Nails Inc Kensington Park Road.

All or Nothing is a clear base with pinks, blues, purples and silvers. It's a real mishmash of shapes and particles, glitters and foils. Some of these even have a lovely holographic sheen.

I used 3 coats of this fabulous glitter to get the density I fancied. Only thing I did wrong was not let the KPR dry enough, especially between coats that it went a bit squelchy. This is what happens though when you finish work at 11pm start back at 7am and insist on changing your nails in between lol.

Hope you are enjoying the holidays!

Happy Boxing Day!

Hi all!

Just a quick Happy Boxing Day to you all. Are you hitting the sales?

Today's nails are a base of Revlon - Royal with 1 coat of Shimmer - Stephanie (which I obviously bought as its my name).

NOTD: Glitzology - Black Friday Madness

Hi all!

Happy Christmas!! I hope Santa was good to you.

In honour if the big man I've done some Santa Claus nails (ring & thumb) along side my Glitzology Black Friday Madness mani. (Please note I actually wore this on the 14th I'm just well ahead at the mo).

Glitzology Black Friday Madness is a very funky polish, and I think I'm correct in saying that Stacy is considering moving it to her permanent line, which would be great as its such an awesome polish!

I layered 3 coats of this beauty over 1 coat of Color Club Gingerbread Man (it actually smells like ginger). BFM is a clear base with small black & holographic glitters, black bar glitters, medium silver glitters, gold squares and silver and black diamonds. It's pretty unique.

I could have used a coat of Gelous but as I was to lazy to look for mine I settled in a few coats of sech vite.

I definitely recommend you pop over to see Stacy and your hands on this little beauty.

Hope you're having a wonderful fun filled day!


Hi all!!

Happy Christmas! Hope Santa's been good.

Quick NOTD: A England Tristam base with Darling Diva Polish: Snowball.
