Christmas Nails

Christmas is a time for children and this seems more true than ever at the moment, so we were very glad that we were able to share this special time with Mr 4 and Miss 3 as they excitedly tore open their presents at some ungodly hour after Santa had visited.

Knowing that we would be gone for the week I decided upon a rather simple mani this year.

And this was the only half decent photo from my rushed photo shoot gggrrrrr. Two coats of the wondrous Chanel Malice and an accent of OPI The Man With The Golden Gun followed by a top coat of Seche Vite.

Future Reflections!

This is Enchanted Polish Future Reflections and there is not really much more I can say about this... it is just sooooo gorgeous!!! And it is so much more holographic in person with a blazing flame that is even more noticeable in real life.

You will have to excuse my middle finger the break has finally grown out! And you can see I tried stiletto nails which really shows off the blaze of holographic goodness. On to my mani then this was two coats of Enchanted Polish Future Reflections followed by one coat of Seche Vite which did not dull the holo flame at all.

Catching Up With Chanel!

Well this was one of those purchases that became a beautiful mistake! I ordered something else and got Chanel Infidele instead and then decided that this polish was worth keeping rather than go through the rigmarole of sending it back etc. etc. Chanel Infidele is in fact a Limited Edition from 2012 Fashion Night Out and is a beautiful mauve pink rose. It really does have the colour of a most perfect flower.

So on to my mani then two coats of Chanel Infidele pure perfection which really didn't need a top coat but you've guessed it I used the tried and true Seche Vite.

Blood and A Mother's Love!!

A strange title I know, so I will give you the background story. I had to go and have some blood tests and then they lost(?) my blood so I had to go back and do it all again!! So when Sophie of Femme Fatale Cosmetics  sent me some polish to review all I could think of when I saw Rainbow Honey Ruby Weapon in that tiny vial was: that looks like blood!!
Anyway moving rapidly on, I swear I was only going to swatch so I didn't prepare as much as I normally do. But Rainbow Honey Ruby weapon is so beautiful being a rich ruby red with copper and gold shimmer that I did all my nails.

Another polish I was sent was Girly Bits A Mother's Love which at the risk of repeating myself I swear I was only going to do an accent nail. I must have been faint from the lack of blood (ha ha) but I did one nail and thought that looks so pretty I then did the rest. And this mani I ended up wearing for the entire week!

So what is Girly Bits A Mother's Love? Well its chock-full of holographic pink and gold glitters of various shapes and sizes in a clear base. It also has a gold shimmer to it and includes pink holo hearts. I didn't know about the hearts until one got on my thumb. On to my mani then two coats of Rainbow Honey Ruby Weapon and one coat of Girly Bits A Mother's Love followed by a Seche Vite top coat.

A strange angle I know but you get to see the Girly Bits holographic goodness trying to out dazzle the Rainbow Honey shimmer!
