OPI Ogre the top Blue with konad imageplate that i can’t remember 😛 The stamping polish is Chanel Blue Satin
AH! dry cuticles!!! darn camera showing things i can’t see in real life 😛 These pictures are kinda cool, i think! I had i tiny sliver of sunlight through a window.
On to the polish! it’s a coral creme with excelent formula! Two coats! and this was a $5 polish! I really love this colour! It looks great both on tan and pale hands! Get this if you have the chance!!! so pretty!
This is kind of a wierd colour! It’s a pink jelly-ish base with gold shimmer! It is a true beauty! To be honest, this swatch is quite old (see the break on my index!), so i don’t remember how it applied and the number of coats!
And about my break here, was in Egypt for a week (where do egyptians buy their nailpolish? all i found was so old the polish had separated completely), and after that i have been working non-stop! Have you done anything exciting so far this summer?
So Linnie from Linnie’s favourites has a soccer-contest going! Personally i don’t like soccer that much, but my boyfriend is obsessed. So i decided to do a mani in honor of his favourite team, Liverpool FC! This is all freehand! The middle is the logo, the ring finger is the number of the BF’s fav player, Torres. The red with the white stripes is representing the shirts, made by adidas!
The red is China Glaze Vermillion, The white is H&M Love at First sight, the green is Jade is the new Black from OPI and the yellow/orange is Happy Go lucky and some Vermillion, both China Glaze!
I would love it if you voted for me ;D
I saw that Also Known As had done this, and it looked like fun, so.. yeah 😛
How many polishes do you have in your stash?
I have no idea… about half a Helmer 😛
Which brand do you own the most of?
China Glaze! It was my first love!
What colors do you own the most of?
blues and purples!
Do you have a color/texture you do not own?
I have only two holos! 😦
What’s the one polish you always pick up to lift your spirits?
Mad as a Hatter from OPI 🙂
What polish do you keep looking at and wondering why you haven’t gotten rid of it yet?
an orange one from H&M and a few neons from the Ink collection from China Glaze that i just can’t get the hang of!
Franken any? or I’m nervous to try it?
I franken! I just don’t do it a lot! I have just started adding pure pigments, so thats fun!
Do you franken for new/original polish ideas or franken for polish you won’t be able to own?
Depends! If i see an amazing franken, and i have the polishes used, i’ll try! But i have also tried to franken Particulaire (mega fail btw)
Go-to Base Coat?
OPI base coat… Not too many options here 😛 We don’t have the huge beauty supplies other countries have
Go-to Top Coat?
OPI top coat or Micro Cell top coat
What’s your sexiest polish?
Hot Pink polish from Depend! I think pink is sexy 😀
Stamping vs Free Hand?
both! I’m not that great at freehand yet! I have no control over my left hand, so i can’t do a full mani of freehand!
Bling me, baby? or No bling for me, please!
I consider my nails basically nekkid if they don’ t have some kind of design?
nope.. all is good! Now, no polish, thats naked!
My favorite plate/tool/technique?
Full designs! I think it’s so hard to place those tiny ones 😛
What I haven’t tried and want to within the month?
my own glittermix for acrylics.. doing acrylics for Egypt, because i can’t bring my entire polish stash 😛
The one elusive polish you want and can’t seem to get?
Chanel Particulaire (but won’t ever get, because i found out chanel do animal testing!), Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure, China Glaze OMG collection and Nfu-Oh
What was the last nail related thing you bought?
I bought a custom “manicure set” for my sister! Just treatments, files, cuticle pushers and polish
How many nail related hauls have you bought in the last 7 days (on-line/in-person)?
If you’ve ever been on a no-buy, how long did it last? Is that what you planned?
I have never intentionally been on one… Sometimes it just happens, mostly because i run out of money 😛
(and one question to grow on) Hobby? Addiction? Compulsion? Passing Fancy? Love?
All! But mostly a compulsion! I can’t stand having the same, unchanged, nailpolish for more than one day at a time! i think my “personal best” is three days 😛
Everyone who wants to do this, knock your socks of 😉
Ruby Pumps is another revamped swatch! Look at this beauty! OMG! so pretty! Red jelly with red glitter! This one came out (again?) with the Wizard of Oz collection! I’m so happy i have this one! A true gem in my collection! Need backup of this one!
Later i’ll do a post on how i take my swatch pictures.. i think i have perfected it quite well now!
