A Post With Pretty Serious Kashmir

OMG! I don't know how long I have been away, but in that time I have worn countless mani's but not much nail art. I have taken photo's but that is as far as it got. Anyway moving on, Chanel have bought out their new Christmas Winter collection and the make up is gorgeous but the polish not so much so. What has this got to do with Pretty Serious Kashmir I hear you all ask? Well Pretty Serious Kashmir released in May 2015 (I know so slack) and only recently worn for the first time by me fits right in with those deep luscious berry shades that Chanel are only now touting!

Actually this is the second time I have worn Kashmir, as I keep going back to it as it is just so pretty in person being a deep berry purple with a ton of shimmer, flecks and flakies. This was two coats which applied perfectly and then a top coat of Seche Vite. I then did the gardening before realising I hadn't taken any photos so another quick coat of Seche Vite and I was good to go!

Pretty Serious - Iktsurpok

I must admit I love grey polish and Iktsuarpok is a beautiful and very sophisticated medium grey creme with silver flakes. Its designed by Hannah from Polly Polish for Pretty Serious. Pretty Serious polishes apply beautiful and I would say are on par with the more high end nail polishes.

On to my mani then, two coats of Pretty Serious Iktsurpok stamped with Uber Chic Plate 3-02 using Kleancolor Metallic Black. Followed by a Seche Vite top coat. Having not worn nail polish for two days everyone and their dog had something to say on the subject, so this mani was met with great interest. And one of the best questions was if my mani was Gucci!

Enchanted Polish Octopus's Garden

So in order to hurry up Spring I thought I would wear some of my holographic Enchanted Polishes, the ones that are not only holographic but also multichromatic too! Well they certainly caused a stir at work I can tell you. But they are oh so hard to photograph in all their glory, grrr

Enchanted Polish Octopus's Garden is absolutely gorgeous in real life and unfortunately the camera has only picked up a tiny bit of that gorgeousness. I.e. only the blue and purple and next to none of the holographic sparkle.

Oh well c'est le vie! as the French say.

Amazeballz Holo!

Remember when I wore my gold mani and everybody loved it, and a couple of customers wanted a bottle of their own? Well as I was ordering for everybody else, I thought I would get the newest member of the Amazeballz family namely Holo! for myself. (As you do!)

On to my mani then I very thin coat of Amazeballz Holo! which has holographic particles in it as well as the metallic flakes that all Amazeballz have, making it extra sparkly if there ever could be such a thing! Then stamped with Born Pretty BP 41 using Kleancolor Metallic Black. I used a different topcoat and I've noticed its pulled my stamping a tiny bit which is not actually that noticeable in real life. Anyway I really love this mani and I'm still wearing it now a week and a half later!

Daphne's Garden Party!

My daughter and her entourage paid us a visit during the school holidays just gone, and we all had to have our nails painted! My daughter not known for her love of glitter enquired upon the glitter I was wearing which was the stunning Pretty Serious Daphne's Garden Party a glitter mix of apricot, lavender, silver, turquoise and violet hexs in a clear base. In fact all the colours you would associate with a grand Garden Party, and declared she would have a full mani of glitter! Not only that when I showed her the Pretty Serious website she declared I should also get Daphne's Disco!

Miss 5 went down a different route and after checking out ALL my stamping plates decided on bunnies in red! As her nails are so tiny I was only able to use the bunnies head from MoYou London Festive Collection 09 with Barry M Gelly in Blood Orange. 

We also spent a wonderful day at Taronga Zoo and if you do happen to find yourself there, the bird show is spectacular.

Chanel Fraicheur!

Well as soon as I saw the first Internet pictures showing a green Chanel polish I had to have it! And Chanel Fraicheur has not disappointed me at all. Fraicheur is a beautiful spring green colour with a blue shimmer which is very subtle on the nail, but it does give a glowy look to the polish. I came to nail polish addiction late so I missed out on Chanel Jade and having done some research on the Internet Fraicheur is not a dupe.

Two gorgeous coats later with a Seche Vite top coat and we have perfection, Chanel Fraicheur is so beautiful, I ended up wearing this mani for two weeks!

Gold Perfection!

Well what can I say this may well have been my most successful mani to date! As soon as I appeared I was getting compliments on my most beautiful and sparkly gold mani.  When I explained this nail polish is not sold in Australia, I was asked by two separate customers if I would be so kind as to order it for them. Of course I was more than happy to oblige. (Any excuse to get even more nail polish lol)

One of my customers a self confessed gold freak said she had spotted my nails from across the room, they were that blingy! So what have I actually got on my mitts then? It is actually two coats of Lacquistry Amazeballz You So Fine! The most beautiful pale gold ever invented.  Followed by Seche Vite topcoat and that's it.

I've had this on my nails a week now and I'm not planning on taking it off anytime soon, so I might just stamp over the top of it for next week.
