Quick Blue.

Just a quick one of what I have on now.

Color Club Wicked Sweet. Gorgeous blue with an odd scent. Very sweet but not an identifiable scent.

Devastation then Relief.

I lost my USB that contains ALL my nail photos, and my polish database. Looked for it for days at home. Then ten minutes ago I came to my local library, and someone had handed it in here. Thank you, whoever you are. That's why I've been gone for so long.
This is the mani I wore on Christmas day.

Green - ORLY Here Comes Trouble
Red - Nubar Fire Sparkle
Silver - Color Club Magic Attraction.

It matched my christmas tree which had red and silver baubles, and was green (DUH)

Storage Part I (Pic Heavy)

Finally, I have taken photos of my nail polish storage.

These are my 2 Ikea Lennarts. I realy want an Alex but just can't afford one at the moment. The Lennarts aer only $20 each so I'm happy with them at the moment. They reside in my bathroom between my cupboard and washing machine.

Drawer One: Australis, Ulta3, Rimmel, Miki, Essence, Sally Hansen

Drawer Two: Nubar, Chanel, Gosh, Wet'n'Wild, CND, Faces of Australia, Oroton, Maybelline

and I think my Butter London is in there but I cn't see it. This drawer also has my Frankens and random single polishes.

Drawer Three: Revlon, Crayola, Zoya, Blue Cross, OPI, Klean Color

Drawr Four: BYS and Top Coats, Base Coats, Drying Drops, Thinner Etc.

Drawer Five: China Glaze

Drawer Six: More China Glaze, Color Club, Orly.

Yep, I love Chian Glaze. And it looks so nice all together.

I also have things like foils, glitters, Fimo sticks and other nail art products in two boxes in my book shelf.

Hope you enjoyed my storage post as much as I enjoy all of yours.

My Charts

I will do a storage post very soon. But in the men time here are some pics of the charts I have done in the last couple of days.

The main reason for these charts is because I have a slight prejudice towards the cheaper brands, which is utterly ridiculuos I know, some of them are just as good, if not better than the more expensive ones. I figured if I did these charts I would then choose totally based on colour and not on brand.

I have 5 of these charts altogether, but the fifth has only 5 dots on it.

In other news. My nails do not seem to be getting any healthier, so I may as well resume with the polishing.

Fun With Glue

Anyone remember back in primary school, in art class. When you'd smear PVA glue over your hand just so you could then peel it off.
You can do the same on your fingernails.

Step 1. Waiting for the glue to dry.

Step 2. Apply polish and wait for it to dry. Try not to go over the edge of the glue onto the nail.

Step 3. Peel off glue. And polish

Step 4. Clean nail and a pile of polish

I haven't yet done a full mani with this, or found out how long it will last but I'll let you know.

Teeny Tiny Nubbins

Couldn't help myself. Had to put on some colour after just 2 naked days.
This is 2 coats of Orly Sapphire Silk. I really like it. To me it's a really dark dusty teal.

Had to chop my nails. Mostly because I've got bad hayfever at the moment, and with chopped nails I cant hurt myself scratching. And also cause they weren't in very good shape. I'm just hoping that they can grow enough in the next 3 weeks so I can o a good Christmas mani.
Here they are in all their naked, short glory.

Pretty Pretty Glitter

This is the gorgeous Wet ' n' Wild glitter, Believe Me It's Real, from the Ice Baby collection. My camera (or photography skills, definately photography skills) aren't as good as other swatches i've seen, but it truly is beautiful. Small blue glitter with meduim purple glitter thrown in too.
Also it's goodbye to my nice shaped nails after today. At work I've been moving books on shelves and have broken corners off six nails. Ah well, maybe it's time for a shape change anyway.
