Simple Glitter

Hi all, super simple mani today, these are actually the nails that I wore for new years eve, so only three and a half months late right? haha.

I started with a black base, and added glitter when It was tacky.  Very shiny, and very pretty.  Sadly I didn't get too many pictures.

Very beetle-like.  That's all from me today.

Ciaté - Loop the Loop & Bronze Stamping

Hi all,

Today I have a really simple mani, really simple stamping, that as always looked better in person.  This was actually my first ever Ciaté polish and I really loved the formula, though as it's a mini, I disliked the brush.  A thank you goes out to one of my managers for getting this for me for a little christmas pressie :] I also got a Ciaté christmas mix glitter (can't remember the name now).

On to the mani:
Base Coat: CND - Stickey
Base Colour: Ciaté - Loop the Loop
Stamping Colour: Revlon - Cooper Chrome
Image Plate: Bundle Monster BM410
Top Coat: Sally Hansen Advanced Hard As Nails

Sadly I forgot to take any swatch shots, but it's a gorgeous creamy pastel yellow. I'll definitely be using this again soon as the Spring weather is making me excited for sunny days!

I really love this image too, I think I may use it next time over a tie-dye type base so it shows through the "arrow head" like space.

That's all from me today, hope you've all had a good weekend :]

Gosh - Frosted Plum Swatches

Hi all.

Scheduled post from me today as I've recovered enough from Friday night to get some coherent sentences together.

This is a pretty pretty polish that was bought for me from the lovely Ashlyn at work =3 As the name would suggest Frosted plum has a really deep base and dries to a sugar-matte finish, and sparkles like no-other! From the bottle it reminds me a little of Models Own - Pinky Brown, just in the colour of some of the flecks.
Gosh - Frosted Plum
There's just something really lovely and warm about the glitter, but it's almost cool-toned too. Here's some pictures with a top coat :

And for good measure have a super blurry shot which shows how sparkly this bad boy is.

That's all from me today.  Hope you's had a nice weekend.
