NOTW: Showgirl

NOTW: Showgirl

My first NOTW since getting back from Thailand and I had to cut my nails really short after biting them to death on the flight home – I’m quite a nervous flier!!!  I’m wearing yet another Ciaté polish, this one is called Showgirl.  Out of all of the Ciaté polishes I’ve tried over the past…

NOTW: Sand Dune

NOTW: Sand Dune

Can you believe that this is the very first gold nail polish I’ve ever owned?!  Sand Dune from Ciaté is the perfect gold colour, not too yellow and with plenty of shimmer.  I love it!

NOTW: Halo

NOTW: Halo

Here is the second Paint Pot from my Ciaté collection – Halo. I was a little disappointed when I applied the colour as in real life it looks as though it would be a pearly white with flecks of pink but it is actually really sheer.  I had to use four coats to build up…

NOTW: Oil Slick

NOTW: Oil Slick

A few weeks ago I got a load of new paint pots from Ciaté.  Oil Slick is the first one I’ve tried and I really like it.  The consistency is lovely, making it easy to apply and I only needed two coat to get full opacity. I love the way it changes between gold and…

NOTW: Glitter Crackle Attempt 2

NOTW: Glitter Crackle Attempt 2

A couple of weeks ago I broke out my glitter crackle polish that had been sitting in my nail varnish box since my first disastrous attempt at using it.  I’m pleased to say that my second go at using it worked out much better and I managed to get some quite impressive crackle patterns.  I…

When I painted my nails last week I was just experimenting really but I quite liked the end result so decided to keep it for a few days.  I used four colours; a yellow from 17, Stand Back from the Stay Perfect No7 range and Purple Dream and Dark Purple Glitter from elf. Which is…

NOTW: Silver Crackle

NOTW: Silver Crackle

This week I’m wearing a 17 crackle polish which I really like. A few weeks ago I tried the black 17 crackle with gold glitter but didn’t really get on with it.  This one is much better and the crackles worked really well!  I’m wearing it over an elf polish called teal and I think…

NOTW: Summer Glitter Tips

NOTW: Summer Glitter Tips

I think this is one of my favourite designs I’ve worn, it’s so bright and summery! I used my new yellow 17 polish for the base with Nubar Vogue Vert, Elf Purple Dream and Body Collection Crystal Suede in Midnight Blue on the tips.  I topped the tips with Nubar Hologram Glitter.  Do you like…
