Addition to Urban-Night.

This is with Nubar White Polka Dots added. One coat, no Top Coat, because I didn't do it at home.
Shocking picture I know. Sorry bout that.

Orange and Blue

Just like last time China Glaze Life Preserver was awful to work with. My set of this collection (Anchor's Away) is really really thick. And to make matters worse it really didn't look good with my skin tone. So I put CDN Ice Blue Shimmer on top. Slipghtly better but still only lasted one day with this mani. Please excuse the fluff on my ring finger.

Cropping... Kinda

This is one of my first attempts at cropping.
I just read Jacie's (You've Got Nail) instructions on how to photograph, and decided to give cropping a go. However I still have a bad case of tension fingers. Must work on this.
This is Orly Glitz and Glamour. I still haven't decided if I like it on me or not. Three coats of a warm gold foil.

Really Bad Orange and a Plea

This is Revlon Orange Fizz, a scented polish. It's smell is yum, yum, yum. But, yet again, I didn't put any base colour underneath and it was really bad. Totally didn't suit my skin tone at all.
P.S Can somebody please find me Santa's Cinnamon and Gingerbread Man from Color Club Scent-tuous Collection. Not available in Australia, silly Australia. :(

Underwear Needed

This is Orly Here Come's Trouble. Three coats. Clearly I need to put a base colour on first.

Layering Mirrors.

As I have run out of remover till tonight I had to do something to extend my mani. So I put on a coat of China Glaze Fault Line, the purple Crackle Glaze

My New Place To Shop... and .... I Made Mirrors.

If you want a fantastic place to buy polish, contact Janet at Boulder Creek Boutique. Lovely lady and so helpful.
And check out the 'custom polish' (Thank you Cathy) that I made. Using the suspension base that Cathy sourced for all of us, and 'Sterling Silver Glitter Powder' from Coastal Scents I made an almost mirror polish. I'll put a few pics in so you can see how well it reflects.

Sunny Shadows

Here is a shadowy sunlight photo of what I'm wearing right now.
China Glaze Paint The Town Red. Two coats with Nubar Diamont on top. I chose this pic because it's the closest to the colour IRL.
Also I have a confession.
Is it bad that I ordered Essence Choose Me when I already have Orly Halley's Comet, OPI Catch Me In Your Net and Zoya Charla. I definately have a problem.

Yay, Yay, Yay

China Glaze + Hunger Games = I Can't Wait. See here for details

Traffic Jam

I always get jealous of bloggers who can think of cool names for their posts. I am not one of them.
In case you hadn't guessed this is China Glaze Traffic Jam from the Metro Collection.
This is an inside photo, even though it was gorgeous in Melbourne on the weekend I am totally incapable of taking photo's in the sun. I even change all the settings and everything. Any tips please?

Secret PeriWinkle with Stamping

Sorry about the shockingly unoriginal title. This is China Glaze Secret PeriWinkle with some cherries stamped on in Konad Special Black.
The reason the photos are of non clean ed up nails is because I didn't like them and took it off straight away. Looking back now I can't actually see why I didn't like it though.

Makes Me Angry

That I can go a whole long weekend and not have anything bad happen to my nails.
And then I get too work and within two hours break three and can see another one on its way.
What makes me happy is the Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe that I wore on the weekend.
This is three coats. I think next time I'll pu a black base coat on first. It's very hard to capture the gloriousness that is ATU
