Trelly’s MISC Polish – Dance Education

One more giveaway polish on my blog today!
This is Dance Education from Trelly’s M.I.S.C Polish. It is a clear based polish with red square and hex glitters, black square and bar glitters as well as white bar ad small squares.
I love the combination of colors and glitters here. I am not usually one for bar glitters but somehow the ones in Dance Education doesn’t bug me much!

I layered  only one coat of Dance Education over Zoya Dove, a grey cream which I love! I actually went back and forth while picking the base color for this polish. I wanted to layer it ovver something that can show off all the different glitters in Dance Education. Do you think picked a good color?

I love how these glitters came together. Although I have seen polishes in the same color combination before, this is definitely a one of a kind polish in my stash 🙂

Christmas Skittletes!

I finally found time to sit down and write this post! It was a really busy Christmas for me! I had so much to eat I think I would need to go on a diet after this. LOL.
Anyways, I do hope all you girls had a great Christmas with your families 🙂
I am sure you have noticed this manicure from a few days ago! The inspiration for this monotonous manicure was from Marta form Chit Chat Nails. She always posts the most interesting skittlete manicure which I love. A few weeks back, Marta had a Skittelete Manicure Contest so I decided to try my luck with this!
I took me a long time to decide what skittlette to do but I finally decided that I wanted to incorporate the new polish I got from my Glitzology Haul – Robots in Love.
I first painted  coat of Color Club Harp on It and topped it off with one coat of  Robots in Love to bring out the holo goodness in Robots in Love. I even managed to get a heart out for this!
I then proceeded to paint my thumb, index and middle finger with two coats of OPI Alpine Snow and, to avoid it looking to stark white, I topped it off with OPI Pirouette My Whistle.
This was a competition held before Christmas so I thought it would be nice to have a little Christmas Tree incorporated in it. So I did that with a nice grey – Zoya Dove – and some striping tape. I topped the litle Christmas tree off with a holographic star I fished out from Robots in Love. 2 quick coats of OPI Black Onyx on my pinky and I was good to go!
And while I was taking photos of it, I realised that I did an Ombre manicure! Ha!

Well, I did not win a prize in the Skittlette Contest but I sure did have fun coming up with the manicure. You should check out all the awesome entries and see if your favorites won!

The polishes I used were:

OPI Alpine Snow

OPI Black Onyx

Samurai Dove!

I have an awesome polish to show you guys today. But before I proceed, I would like to apologize for my poor cuticles. Ever since I got back from the island my skin has been really dry, just shy from peeling to be honest. I am trying my best with lotions and balms to keep things moisturized but it seems I need to bump it up a notch.
Okay. With that out of the way, let me show you this pretty polish I got from Sonnetarium not too long ago. Anyone can guess what it is from the title of this post?
It’s the awesome black and white glitter – Samurai Princess!! I mentioned in my previous post that I only bought this polish because I caved in to the B&W glitter trend which everyone was talking about. I do not regret getting this now! Not one bit!
Samurai Princess is filled with small and medium sized hex glitters, bars and a dash of super fine round glitters. Coverage with this polish is quite good. All I used is 2 thin coats is the photo above. The photo below is one coat PS over 2 coats Zoya Dove. You can see that there is a decent amount of glitter on the nail, and quite a variety too!
I added another thin layer of glitter in the photo below. The coverage is much better with no bald spots. It looks like the pinky has a huge spot with no glitter but, in fact, it is covered in glitter – small white ones.
And somehow, almost everytime I use a glitter polish to paint my nails, my dominant hand always looks better. Go figure!
The brush in my botthe wasn’t perfect with a few strands of the brush sticking out on the side. It didn’t cause me any trouble and could be made to join the rest of the bristles by wiping the side of the bottle when taking the brush out.
And a few shots of Zoya Dove on its own.

Happy 4th of July!

Happy Fourth of July to the ladies in the US of A!
I hope you all already have plans to go somewhere to look at the 4th of July fireworks! I remember when I was in the States last year over 4th of July weekend. My friend and I went up to a golf course/driving range on the hill to look at the fireworks. It definitely was a night to rememeber because the last time I ever saw a fireworks show was at least a good 5 years away!
I decided on a tape mani over Zoya Dove that I had on yesterday. I used OPI Alpine Snow, OPI No Room for the Blues and Cult Nails Evil Queen on my tips. I kinda did this really late last night. My lines aren’t as crisp as I’d like them and it seems that NRFTBs have bled slightly into Evil Queen and gave my red tips a slight purple hue.

Zoya Dove

A quick post of how my nails are like today. I had to cut them down to nubbins because they were getting a little too long for my liking. I ended up giving myself quite a few scratch marks the few days and it wasn;t fun.
Zoya Dove is a lovely grey color from the Intimate Collection of Spring 2011. It is a light grey creme that leans neither blue or green. Unlike OPI My Pointe Exactly, Dove maintains it’s grey hue at all times.
Application was quite easy and was opaque in two coats. Do excuse the dents and dry cuticles in the photo below. I realised that after I took these photos and removed repolished my nails. Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo then. They are now half way through a design I have in mind. Hopefully it’ll turn out good!
