Good Evening Lovelies!

Essie Shine of the Times Swatches and Comparison to Color Club Snow-Flakes

Essie Shine of the Times Swatches and Comparison to Color Club Snow-Flakes

Good Evening!

Where do my days keeping disappearing to? This post has just been sitting in my draft box all week waiting to have words attached to it and only now have I forced myself to finish it!

Today’s post is about Essie‘s Shine of the Time from the Luxe effect collection. I picked this beauty up for $6.00 NZD from the local importer clearance sale. Usually you have to fork out $30 NZD for this one here in NZ, if you can find it. Today I’ve layered it over black, red and blue to show you what it looks like.

Onwards!

OPI Jinx

OPI Jinx

Good Afternoon!

How has your week been? My has been busy; I flew down south to watch Mr Gabby’s graduation parade and after that we have done nothing but watch movies and go shopping all weekend. It was awesome!

So my post today is all about Jinx from the OPI‘s Bond Girl Liquid Sand Collection. Usually I do not do textured polish and I had been a bit meh about OPI’s previous liquid sands. However when I was out with Mr Gabby he thought the colour was pretty bad ass, now when Mr Gabby likes a polish I don’t argue and I just buy it. And I’m really glad I did, because Jinx is gorgeous!

Have a look at the photos (there is a few of them cause Jinx can be hard to get photos of) and I’m sure you’ll need it too!

Nail Polish of the Week – OPI Unfor-Greta-Bly Blue

Nail Polish of the Week – OPI Unfor-Greta-Bly Blue

Good Evening!

This week to make sure I started to use more of my nail polish collection I picked a polish that would be my base for the week. I started my challenge off with OPI‘s Unfor-Greta-Bly Blue from the Germany collection. Also known as Captain America’s Butt, by my awesome fangirl work mates ❤

So the whole idea of this challenge is to dig through my polish collection and use more of it. Sometimes a polish gets swatched and I don’t wear it again for months. So each week I pick a colour which has to be the base colour for my nails for the rest of the week.

Here is what I did with this week’s polish.

W7 Crimson

W7 Crimson

Good Afternoon Lovelies!

So we all survived the end of the world (again) like we all thought we would. I have been off from work this week playing video games (I’m now onto God of War 2) and buying far too much nail polish. AND next week is Christmas :3 Already I have seen some amazing Christmas inspired nail polish and nail art and I was feeling a little bit left out. Now I am not Mrs Uber Christmas so don’t expect too much from me! This week in my latest polish binge I picked up yet another W7 polish, Crimson. I thought it was a vaguely festive colour and that you would like to have a look at this sexy red and how I made it Christmassy.
