I haven't worn glitter mani's for so long now, I've almost forgotten how striking they can be! After my Pretty Serious Golden Ticket mani I couldn't wait to try some more glitter polishes from the Pretty Serious Rooftop Soiree collection. So the first one out of the box is Moments Til Midnight which looks like being the Cinderella of the collection as I have not seen as many reviews of it and yet it is my favourite! I just love blue polish and this one is no exception. It's a wonderful navy blue jelly jam packed with different sized gold holographic hexes and is seriously gorgeous!
As you can see the sunlight has bled out all the rich colour from my photo but it doesn't do this in real life. (Might have to fiddle around with my camera settings grrr) So on to my mani then, two coats of Pretty Serious Moments Til Midnight followed by two coats of Seche Vite to make my mani glassy smooth.

Pretty Serious Cosmetics recently held a pre-sale event for their Rooftop Soiree Collection, which has six gorgeous glitter shades perfect for the forthcoming party season with each sure to match or enhance your party outfit. Oh Glitter! be still my beating heart. And if that wasn't enough Pretty Serious also released a Limited Edition of just 100 Evie's First Christmas a beautiful vibrant red with red and gold shimmer it looks just stunning in the bottle and I can't wait to wear it. But even more rare was the Limited Edition Golden Ticket randomly put into just 15 packages and guess what I was lucky enough to get one! I was super excited when I realized what it was and my work colleagues were also very interested to find out what all the fuss was about!
And I had the perfect occasion to wear it at our works Christmas Luncheon held at a stunning waterside location in Sydney. It was a perfect day. On to my mani then, two coats of Pretty Serious Golden Ticket followed by a Seche Vite top coat.

Yes it's that time of year again when I'm wined and dined by my employer for a job well done along with everyone else! I'm afraid I wasn't really up to it this year but I tagged along and this is my mani I wore to match my turquoise lace dress. So two coats of Dior Diorific Lady stamped with MoYou London Gothic Collection 04 using Mundo De Unas Turquoise #5

Well we've moved, we are nearly tidy with just a few stray boxes left and my nails have grown a bit so all is good. Femme Fatale had a grab your Enchanted Polish wish list type sale on just recently and I naturally had to take part! Amongst the colours I got was this beautiful holographic gold called The Good Life and there you have my tenuous link for this post!
Adventures in Stamping a facebook page had been awash with white and gold mani's. I could not believe how beautiful they all looked so I jumped on the bandwagon with Enchanted Polish The Good Life stamped with MoYou London's Gothic Collection 04 using Mundo De Unas White

Well we have finally moved and I'm afraid a couple of nails didn't make it! Neither did the TV but that is a whole other story! So no nail polish for the week of moving mainly because I couldn't locate everything followed by a week of so short nails leaves me searching through the archives to find my birthday nails from last month!
They had to be blue of course my favourite colour so I chose Cirque Midsummer Night stamped with MoYou London Zodiac Collection 08 Virgo using Cult Nails Lethal my go to silver stamping polish.

After days of sunshine I thought Summer must surely be here soon so I decided to do a really firey sunshiney mani! The minute I had it on my mitts the weather turned grey for a couple of days. But we are now back on track so all is good.
Seeing quite a few mani's with different but connected designs, I thought I would have a go too. And I must say I'm quite pleased at how these turned out.
On to my mani then two coats of Barry M Blueberry for the bright Summer blue skies I'm expecting with an accent nail in Barry M Mango. I then stamped with MoYou London Zodiac Collection 07 the Leo plate using Mundo De Unas #11 Yellow and #53 Geranium. And to give this mani extra sparkle a quick coat of Northan Lights Hologram top coat gold before finishing with Seche Vite.

Having seen a lot of mani's that are just a neutral nail plus stamping in white aka the famous bridal nails which are in fact stickers I thought I would do the same but in colour and not the same image! Plus I had just bought a new gorgeous top with these beautiful spring colours so...
On to my mani then, just my regular base coat I use Trind Nail Repair Stamped with Barry M Blackberry a dark teal blue and Barry M Key Lime (the name speaks for itself) which I found didn't really show up as much as Barry M Blackberry so I stamped over the top of that with Barry M Kiwi using MoYou London Bridal Collection 07. And then top coated with Seche Vite I seriously cannot live without that stuff! And I must just say that Barry M polishes are divine and the Hi Shine's stamp beautifully.
