Dream Catcher Nail Art

Hey, hey, hey!

Finally some nail art! I’m very conscious of how many swatch blog posts I put up so I’m always really excited to share nail art! When I first started out blogging I pretty much only posted nail art but after a while I started getting more and more interested in the newer collections and indie polishes too. I know whenever I purchase a polish I look up swatches and read other blogger thoughts on them before I decide so I like posting swatches too.

Anyhow, I tried out another cute polish tutorial but I changed it up a little bit. Well, really what happened was that I mucked up the string part and ended up just winging it instead of taking it off and starting again. I think it worked out fine!

I used the following polishes for this look:

– Color Club Pucci-Licious
– Picture Polish Marine
– OPI Teenage Dream
– LA Girl Nostalgic
– Sinful Colors Snow Me White
– Black striper

And I followed this Cute Polish tutorial. Try it out for yourself and share your recreations!

Étude House Minnie Mouse Polish

Hey, hey, hey!

This is a long overdue post, considering I got this polish for Christmas. It is so incredibly cute! The cute factor is just way up there.

I got two of the Étude House Xoxo Minnie nail polishes for Christmas and I tried out this Mickey/Minnie Mouse shaped glitter recently. There are a few different ones in the collection and this has no name on it but the bottle has got a number 6..? Korean polishes.. Drives me mad not having the names on them!

I layered the glitter over two coats of Essie Turquoise & Caicos. The large glitter is quite hard to get out and I think that this polish would benefit from the sponge method as it’s not a very densely packed glitter topper.

Swatch: Pahlish Bitter Sweet Symphony

Hey, hey!

Yes.. Yet again it has been a while since my last blog post.. So here’s a quick run down of my life in January 2014.. I moved house from a big one bedroom place all to myself to a tiny inner city apartment shared with two (fab gay) guys. The apartment is extremely warm which makes it quite difficult to paint my nails as you can imagine. Also the fumes don’t have anywhere to escape as my room is an internal room (read as no opening windows). Life has been shaken upside down and all around but we live and go on!

I’ve had this Pahlish polish for a while now but I haven’t posted a blog post about it mostly because my mind was so wishy washy about how I feel about it. I actually didn’t like it at all when I first tried it but it has grown on me! The first coat is quite sheer but two coats makes the black base opaque and the glitter doesn’t require any fishing at all. So many kinds of glitter in this one!

It’s still not my fave but it’s still a really cool indie polish!
