Too Many Untrieds 2: Zoya, W7, Nubar etc

W7

W7 Pink Suede – 1 coat, no top coat

W7 Pink Suede

no sunlight! But this is a very pretty deep pink, and I’d imagine top coat brings out that silver shimmer.

W7 Metallic Jupiter – 2 coats, no top coat

W7 Metallic Jupiter

Oh, wow. I love glass fleck shimmer, and multi-chromes, so no surprise that I adore this. I was surprised at how opaque it was at 2 coats! And the pink/purple/blue shifts were gorgeous.

NUBAR

Toasted Marshmallow – 2 coats, no top coat

Nubar Toasted Marshmallow

This is a very jelly polish, but it became opaque at 2 coats. Strange! Also, it reminds me of baby poo. Not good. But a nice flattering colour, and for me, a good base for some of my other glitters πŸ˜€

Nubar On The Radar – 2 coats, no top coat

Nubar On The Radar

Crelly, and just a gorgeous colour. My camera wants to show all these as much lighter than they actually are, argh! But it was a flattering deep terracotta orange,Β  looking almost red in the sunlight. This polish had been sitting for a good few months, and some of the pigment was separating out, but a good shake got it all mixed back up again.

Nubar Contempo – 1 coat no top coat.

Nubar Contempo

Matte!Β  Surprise! Lovely deep raspberry, blue toned pink.

Nubar Reclaim – 2 coats, no top coat.

Nubar Reclaim

I’ve been wanting to try this for ages, and I’m sad I waited so long, it’s gorgeous. Deep emerald green, and even though there was no direct sunlight, you can see the holographic shimmer still. Sorry I couldn’t get a better photo!

Peripera Rose Nail – 3 coats, no top coat.

Peripera Rose

Pretty pink jelly with scattered white hex glitters. Quite sheer, nail line is still visible after the three coats.

SpaRitualΒ  Greenhouse – 3 coats, no top coat

Sparritual Greenhouse

Very pretty! Needs three coats for opacity, but has a lovely gold shimmer. I still love their bottles…

NYX Girls 131 – 2 coats, no top coat

NYX 131

Almost a one coater, and a very pretty deep red with pink and gold shimmer. I do LOVE these shades!

Nail Mail in JULY! WHEEE!

I got some nail mail! Yay! It’s been quite a long time since I’ve got any polish in the mail, and it’s soooo exciting πŸ˜€

This was my haul from Harlow & Co. I love Harlow & Co, but I have noticed their shipping has slowed down a lot lately. Hopefully that isn’t the norm, and others have better stories. I still adore their polishes, and their site!

Quick, fun, manis – St Paddy’s Day & Camo…

My nails for St Patricks Day – which was on Sunday here, but I went on Friday night, as the local watering hole had a live band. It was a lovely night, great music, good friends, fun dancing πŸ˜€

So, for quick and easy I went with a skittles of my untried green polishes, and added some little green flower doo-dads on my accent nails. So, right to left; on my thumb I have MUA 13, then Orly It’s Not Rocket Science, Color Club Fly With Me, Nubar Reclaim and then Ozotic Scatter 915.

2013_03150002

Three coats of each, top coated with Misa BREAK neck. Nice, sparkly, and quick!

And today’s effort – these are my attempt at camouflage nails!

2013_03210020

One coat of China Glaze Kalahari Kiss, then I blobbed on Essie Sew Psyched, China Glaze Budding Romance, Chi Chi Fast Love, and more Kalahari Kiss. Topped off with Misa BREAKneck.

I do quite like this, but I think it would be better if I’d made my blobs more irregular, as it is it almost looks like eggs.. but still. Fun. And I’ll do better next time!

Have a great day

Nail Mail!

This was my birthday present to me… it didn’t turn up by my birthday, but thats fine, just meant I had two birthdays. Second, second birthday πŸ˜‰

These preciousssesss (to continue a theme) were from Harlow & Co – really nicely packaged. Shipping seemed to take a while, but taking into account we had Christmas and New Years stat holidays in the middle, I suspect it was pretty good shipping time, really! πŸ˜€

I bought THREE Girly Bits polishes! And can I say, that name kinda makes me snigger like a 12 year old boy, sometimes. πŸ˜€

Girly Bits Polishes

This is, left to right, Arctic Sunrise, Magically Delicious, and Star Spangled

And then:

2013_01040003

Left to Right: KB Shimmer Quantum Leaf (MEEEEP!), Nubar Reclaim (meeep MEEP!) and Kolt Lunatic.

I’ve been lemming half of these polishes for quite some time, (Girly Bits, Nubar) but fiercely lemming Quantum Leaf since I saw it (also Toucan Touch This and Splat, but good things take time – and not being sold out, yeah). I GOT Quantum Leaf!

And over the weekend I had more turn up – don’t worry, I don’t have many more coming in, this will be the last of the haul posts for quite some time πŸ™‚ Pahlish: Sitting in a Tin Can and Pianos Filled with Flames:

From Candy Girl:

Layla Mirror Effect Black As Ebony, OPI Don’t Touch My Tutu!, OPI Goldeneye, OPI Every Month is Oktoberfest, and Zoya Feifei. They also sent a Niju Brightening Essence Mask – looks like fun πŸ™‚ My mother bought me a voucher for Candy Girl, which is why I was able to get so many amazing polishes. Thank you!!
