I picked up a POPbeauty polish from Sephora the other day. I have always been eyeing them but as long as I could remember, they always were priced at RM49 (~£10/USD15) a tad on the expensive side if you ask me. But when I saw them going for RM29 (~£5.90/USD9.25) I knew I had to buy them. Even if just one of them.
I grabbed this gorgeous red glitter polish which I now know as Xmas from the POP beauty website. I thought it looked a lot like China Glaze Ruby Heels which I still do not own.
What to do when you are wearing a red mani and just purchased an awesome red glitter? Why, top the existing mani off with some glitter of course!
Xmas looks even more gorgeous on my nails that it did in the bottle! It gave my half moon manicure a lit from within quality! I think I only applied one coat on all my nails but somehow it seems like my middle and ring finger has more glitter in them than the other two fingers.
I have to post this photo I took with flash! *drool*
I just love bargains! And this is definitely a winner in my books 🙂
I haven’t done half moon nails in a long time. I wonder why.. Hmm..
Today I topped off Calypso Gold with a Splash polish that I have, Splash 10 to be exact. 10 is a rich bold red creme polish but upon application 10 seemed like it is a jelly. Weird right? I only needed 2 coats of it to cover up Calypso Gold though.
One thing I found facinating about 10 is that although it has fully covered Calypso Gold the shimmer from Calypso Gold could still shine through it!
Gorgeous or what?!
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!
