NOPI - It's All About The Glam

Hello lovelies!

Today I'm wearing Nicole by OPI - It's All About The Glam.

I don't own a lot of NOPI, but this is possibly one of the nicest and I've never been a fan of white polishes but this one is a wee bit different.  It's got a lovely silver shimmer running through it which makes it less harsh.  



This was 3 coats of It's All About the Glam.



I got this is TK Maxx in a set of 4 for £12.99 (I think that's how much it was if not it was £14.99).  I thought I'd use it as white undies but it became a stand alone beauty.

Nails Inc - Luminous Metallic Red & Maybelline - Boom Box Black

Hello lovelies!

Today I'm wearing a limited edition (I got it when I bought Colgate toothpaste) Nails Inc - Luminous Metallic Red topped with Maybelline Boom Box Black.
The red is a typical metallic red, it's pretty and a good formula but tbh it's nothing special.  Considering the toothpaste was a lovely shade of blue I think they'd have been better to go with that.



Boom Box Black by Maybelline is one of their new Street Artist glitter topcoats.  Despite what the name suggests this isn't solo black, there's a lovely green (lime?) in the mix.  So we've got glitter, bars and large hexes in black and lime green.



The glitter definitely saved this mani!

365 Days of Color - Thankful

Hello lovelies!

Today I'm wearing 365 Days of Color - Thankful.  This was released in November as part of Sunny's 12 Months of Color.



A sheer nude with chocolate glitters and golden yellow hexes.  I did 3 coats and there was visible nail line, this would also look good with undies.



A nude mani with a twist.

Revlon - Mysterious and OPI - Snowflakes in the Air

Hello lovelies!

Today I'm wearing Revlon - Mysterious.  I got this in Poundland, I do love that shop!
An almost metallic blue with a hint of teal.



As pretty as this polish is I couldn't resist adding this glitter topper OPI - Snowflakes in the Air.  A mix of silver holographic glitters that really twinkle.



Such a wintery mani.

Glam Polish - It's So Fluffy I'm Gonna Die!

Hello lovelies!

Today I'm wearing Glam Polish - It's So Fluffy I'm Gonna Die!  Another minion inspired polish by that Australian genius Glam Polish.


       

A gorgeous white polish full of various sized pink and yellow glitters.  These are the colours of Agnes' beloved Unicorn that Gru won for her at Super Silly Fun Land.

      

      

I like Agnes am a HUGE unicorn fan, this polish was so pretty I wore it 2 days in a row, a rarity for me.

365 Days of Color - The Boy Who Lived

Hello lovelies!

I decided to recycle my mani (Ciaté - Kiss Chase).  This was done by adding an awesome indie and some stamping.


        

I used 365 Days of Color - The Boy Who Lived.  This is a black jelly with stunning teal holographic glitters.
I also used GA38 from the Gals Fairy Set to add these cute umbrella's.

        

        

This mani was fun to wear.

Ciaté - Kiss Chase

Hello lovelies!

Today I'm wearing Ciaté - Kiss Chase.  I got this in one of the Colourfoils Sets but I've not actually got round to trying the foils yet.


        

A nice bright pink, two coats for full coverage.  I've been favouring bright and cheerful colours recently, I think it definitely means I'm ready for the summer and hopefully we have a summer like 2013's!



Such a lovely girly colour!

Hello lovelies!

Today I'm wearing Essie - Camera. And I've done a few "designs" using Born Pretty Store Matte Top Coat.


Essie - Camera is a lovely neon coral, it's really eye-catching!


I'm a sucker for a matte top coat and this one from Born Pretty is 1 of my top 3.

Born Pretty Store - Kse Ria 009

Hello lovelies!

I've got a super pretty polish from Born Pretty Store to show you today.


You can buy this fabulous polish here for $4.36 or £2.65!


A milky mint coloured polish with teal micro glitters and copper and silver glitters.


This is two coats and it has a lovely smooth finish.  This polish is so "on trend" at the moment and for a fraction of the price that some other brands are selling similar polishes for.

Nailz Craze NC02 Stamping Plate

Hello lovelies!

I'm going slightly out of sync but here is NC02.


This plate features those stunning mythical creatures, unicorns and pegasus.


This lovely plate can be purchased here.


I used Konad black for the pretty patterns.


These are poundland falsies in lilac this time.


This plate is so dreamy, I love everything about it!  Though again my small nails prevented me transferring the whole pattern but I managed to "adapt" it.

Nailz Craze NC03 Stamping Plate

Hello lovelies!

Some more stamping from me.


I've used Nailz Craze NC03 which can be purchased here.


I love this plate as I'm a huge Matryoshka fan.


The patterns are all so pretty but even with falsies I've small nails and the largest Matryoshka image was too big for me.


Again the falsies are the colour they were, a nice lemon. These falsies are fool proof if you don't want to do any more with them than pop them on.


I need to practice centreing my patterns and covering the whole nail.
