My Favourite Polish: Glitter Edition

Hey everyone!

My second edition of the 'My Favourite Polish' series. Today is going to be focused on... GLITTER! Now, to me, my subsection of "glitter" means that I need to put these polish on top of other polish.. Some polish contains glitter with a fairly opaque base and is okay without a base colour first.. so.. that is how I determine whether a polish is a glitter or not.. Yup.

Here are my top 10 favourite glitter polish - in no particular order!


OPI Glow Up Already - I have never actually posted a photo of anything I have done with this gem. How awful! It is a full out glitter gem with mostly greenish-gold toned glitter. And it is wonderful! I did like most of the glitters released in the Burlesque collection - but this one is definitely my favourite!

China Glaze CG In The City - Another polish that I haven't really posted using.. what is going on with me?! This is purple-y and silver-y and exquisite.

OPI Teenage Dream - All right. Another that I didn't post any looks using. WOW! This is making me seem like a complete fraud. I promise that I really do love these glitters! This one is pretty and pink and the name of my favourite Katy Perry song. I need to get to work and post up some manis using these gems, and FAST!

Wet n Wild Back Alley Deals - Purple and fuchsia glitter. Enough said.

Nails Inc Connaught Square -  This is a perfect glitter for galaxy nails! It is 3D and gorgeous! That is all.


OPI Crown Me Already! - Ok. When I think "glitter", I always think of silver glitter. This is the ultimate silver or silver on silver. It was the polish that I based my New Years nails on last year. Very pretty and very silver!

China Glaze Techno - This is another I don't have any posting for.. What have I been doing? Not taking photos for you all. This is AWFUL! Again, silver glitter with holographic silver glitter. It is just very, very pretty! A great addition to my collection.

China Glaze Snow Globe - Aptly named. It is seriously like the snow globe flakies.. perfect for Christmas themed manis or just for the 'something extra' touch to a single polish mani.

Nail Inc Bloomsbury Square - This is the other 'perfect for galaxy nails' glitter. I love it for that reason alone.

OPI Pirouette My Whistle - This is going to sound strange, and I feel weird writing it - but this is a delicate glitter. Two words that shouldn't really go together. I mean, glitter, to me, usually means IN YOUR FACE! But this one is so subdued and innocent. It really is perfection.

That is it for my top 10 glitter polish - what is your favourite glitter polish? Or even your top 10?! I'd love to know!!

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

Blonde Tortoise

Hello everyone!

I am not going to do a full write-up on my absence and such, just wanted to share these gem nails. I have been painting my nails/nail art'ing it up this entire time, but a lot of stuff I have done hasn't made me inspired enough to post it.. until now!

I came across THESE NAILS on instagram by Nailthoughts and wanted to do something like that.. and I liked the results a lot. I feel like mine are a little more 'grungey', which is usually where I like to take my nail art.


I used:
Essie First Base Base Coat
OPI Don't Touch My Tutu!
Elevation Polish (label sticker is off, but the dark brown from the tortoise shell collection)
Orly Liquid Vinyl
Gold Flake
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for now - have an excellent day!
