Birthday Nails!

It was my birthday last week and I decided to wear my most favourite colour of all time, not only is it my favourite colour it is also the colour that got me back into nail polish in a big way.  This time I was able to take some half decent pictures too! Let me introduce you to OPI Blue My Mind the most beautiful pearl mid toned blue with a touch of purple.

And as if that wasn't enough I topped it off with Shades Of Phoenix You're A Wizard the bonus polish that came with The Dark Arts Collection which is pink and blue glass flecks in a clear base. Followed by one coat of Seche Vite.

And its my blog's Birthday on the 1st October, so make sure you come back for an extra special "Giveaway"!!

Shoot The Butterfly

Aww please don't! Well you needn't worry, no butterflies were harmed in the making of this particular post! Instead we have a long overdue post about Crows Toes Shoot The Butterfly part of the springTHIS collection. All I can say is that it is finally Spring in Australia so that is my tenuous link for today.

I choose to pair it with OPI A Womans Prague-Ative a beautiful rich shimmery orange similar to Kleancolor Metallic Mango. So on to my mani then two coats of OPI A Womans Prague-Ative, two coats of Crows Toes Shoot The Butterfly followed by one coat of Seche Vite.

Crows Toes Shoot The Butterfly is a wonderful concoction of orange, white and black glitters in a brownish base to represent the Red Admiral butterfly and is, as is always the way, far more stunning in real life!

Le Weekend! Painting Everyone Else's Nails!

We had our daughter and her family spend the weekend just gone with us, and as per usual everyone wanted their nails painted! Also I'm going to be using old photos here, as we did not get around to taking any new ones (my bad).

Miss 3 decided on pink because no other colour was going to cut the mustard! And she made an excellent choice of Ozotic Pro 901 a beautiful baby pink. 

OMG how old is this photo? In case you are wondering its coming up to one year. Mr 4 decided upon Chanel Graphite because its grey and that's a boy's colour... No amount of explaining that it was a steel like silver was going to wash, so I give you Chanel Graphite grey.

My daughter was actually going out and leaving me in charge during the day (eek) and she wanted something special to wear and the only thing I could think of that was very special was Chanel Taboo.
I was actually wearing Enchanted Polish Electric Feel, which is just gorgeous by the way and you'll just have to take my word for that until I wear it again and get pictures! Suffice to say I can understand all the furore surrounding Enchanted Polishes.
