Mare!!! She has a awesome little blog

I had all the entrants names in a document, and was going to the grand pulling out of the hat; but I ran out of printer ink.  Which is probably a good thing for the environment but no fun hat pics for you :(  So off to random number generator (next time definitely using a form) and came back with the winner!!

Thanks so much to all of you who entered; will probably having another one shortly given my increased polish purchasing and limited space to store them :)

St Patrick's Day.. Green with Ivanka

I have a obsession when it comes to green nail polish; I have more green than any other colour.. even my beloved purple!!
Zoya; Ivanka
I was saving Ivanka for a special occasion and today definitely counts as an occasion for all things green.  It is a little sheer, I had to do 3 coats and I'm considering doing a 4th!! The finish is great, shiny; sleek and smooth!! The wear is not brilliant, definitely recommend a top coat for colour longevity alone!! But enough of the teensy downfalls just look at that colour!!! (right now I'm making a Homer Simpson-esque guttural drooling noise)

Hope you all have a marvellous St Patrick's Day

Anniversary Giveaway!! Update!!

Now I have the long arduous task of sorting out all the comments, double checking links and whether anyone has commented twice.. Almost third of the way through.. so shouldnt be too long now

Zelda Mani

A moody green

A while back I managed to get some claire's Mood polish on eBay; it's not the most dramatic colour change of  the mood polishes but it's still quite fun!!  Halfway through the 2nd day I got China Glaze's Fault Line in the mail and decided to enhance my mani.. Hardly any crackling though the colour is fabulous (it is purple) I'm really hoping that a solid dash of polish restorer will increase it's crackle effect
Crackle FAIL!!

Jayd Coral Colours Swatches

Artificial light
You can best see the shimmer in this polish in full sun, though it looks more blue than it is that picture also, best pic of the colour is in the shade, as it didn't make my hands look as "lobstery" as the artificial light would suggest. It dries quickly, the first coat was a little streaky but only needed another coat to reach a nice opaque finish. As this is a limited edition shade I would definitely recommend hunting it down at your local chemist.. Or you can buy it straight from the Coral Colours website!!
