Paris Sparkles: Chataigne

I did a pedicure with a glitter polish I got from etsy quite some time ago – Chataigne by Paris Sparkles. Chaitaigne is French for chestnuts and this color is really quite close to it. Chaitaigne is a mixture of brown and bronze glitters in a clear base.
This glitter polish is jammed pack with glitter I tell you! If you are lazy, you could easily get away with one thick coat. It is rather gritty so I used 2 layers of Seche Vite to smoothen it out.

Summer Sale at models own!

50% off!! OMG!!

I am so tempted to get some polishes from them but I am quite scared actually. I have heard lots of horror stories on shipping stuff from the UK. Apparently it can take up to 4 weeks before the parcel leaves the UK and another 4-8 weeks before it arrives in my postbox.

*decisions decisions*

Owh, I almost forgot! Pop by ModelsOwn website here and use the code SUMMERSALE at checkout for the discounts to take effect.
Happy shopping!! Do let me know if you grabbed anything interesting!

They have arrived!

I am super duper happy!! If you didn’t know, I was going on about how my package from this shop who keeps their stock in two different states last week. The package took about 10days to travel between states and be assembled before it could be sent out.
The girls packed this package much better than the last I would say. Still no box or padded envelope but at least it’s in a medium flyer instead of a large flyer this time. And they did take more time to separate the bottles with bubble wrap.
Anyways I got some Glitter Gal polishes as well as a few OPIs in this order. I believe that these colors from GGs have been discontinued though. If I do fall in love with any of them I am gonna be so so sad! ūüė¶
Top row L-R: GG White Sparkle, Suede 3D Holo, Bronze Sparkle, White Gold Sparkle
Bottom Row L-R: OPI Happy Anniversary, Warm and Fozzie, I Don’t Give a Rotterdam

Skittles!

This manicure is ancient. By the look of the messy cuticles and the super nubbins I would say that this manicure is at least 2 years old!! If my memory serves me right, I chose to do this skittle mani because I was down with fever and wanted something to lift my spirits. And it did!!
All the colors used in this mani are OPIs: No Room for the Blues, Greenwich Village, Need Sunglases, Flit A Bit and Big Apple Red.
Not long after I decided to make my mani less in your face, I went with half moons topped with OPI Private Jet – holo version. I actually got Private jet from a friend as a present. She was gifted it but found that it was not to her taste. Lucky lucky me!

Charmingly Happy

Today I have another untried from Cult Nails! I present to you Charming form the Cult Fairy Tale¬†Collection¬†that came out a few months ago. On her blog, Maria said that Charming is ¬†purple creme, but to me, Charming seems more like a purple jelly. Although this picture doesnt really show off it’s shimmer, it is definitely there, trust me on this!
 
Cult Nails polishes can be bought at their online store. Do follow Maria, the creator of Cult Nails on her blog, Facebook and Twitter for more updates and news on the brand.
My Prince Charming definitely could use a Happy Ending don’t you think?
I added Happy Ending from The Cult Fairy Tale Collection to my tips and all over my index finger as an accent finger. I did not fall in love with Happy Ending at first sight but I think I can grow to love it ūüôā The shredded glitter sure adds a different dimension to this manicure!
