Emily de Molly Spam

Hi lovelies,

This should be the last scheduled post I did, I'll be free and back to swatching and doing nail art very soon, can't wait XD And to make it up for the lack of post in October, I put together a swatching spam for you, and the shades are all by one of my favorite brand, Emily de Molly, so you know it's a good spam ; )

Head over Heels a lavender holo with a strong pink shimmer. Two easy coats with topcoat.




Dramatic Entrance, blue leaning teal holo, the holo effect is totally mind blowing!! Shown is two thin coats with topcoat.




Setting Sun is a bright (almost neon) coral holo, the holo in this is subtle, but pretty! Again two thin coats.




Lost in Paradise, a light blue holo with a strong pink to gold shift, kind of like a strong silver holo with a twist.




Blue Prediction is a bright blue jelly with various sizes of silver holo hexes, really packed!




Sabotage, a dark red toned purple jelly with silver ultra holographic micro glitter.




Love Triangle is a cute glitter topper with white triangles and hexes with blue, neon pink and orange to green iridescent glitters. I layered it one coat over OPI Pink Friday.




Folklore, a lightly tinted turquoise jelly with turquoise holographic micro glitter. This shade dries textured, which is shown in the first three pics; I applied a thick coat of Seche Vite for the last pic. Loving both finishes!





I hope you enjoyed this long and pic heavy post : ) xx

Glam Polish Welcome to Storybrooke Collection Multichrome Holos

Hi lovelies,

I hope you're all doing well, I've been juggling between assignments, lol. No time for swatching or nail art whatsoever, I really miss the fun of swatching and the excitement of seeing pretty polishes on my nails. These are the multichrome holos from Welcome to Storybrooke Collection by Glam Polish, the collection includes new shades inspired by the Hit TV Series Once Upon a Time.  

Hat Trick is a multichrome holo thats shifts from copper-red-pink-violet. This one is the favorite of mine, the color shifting is absolutely divine!! Shown is two thin coats of Hat Trick over black, the formula and opacity of these are great, and you could achieve the same opacity and effect with one thicker coats over black. 





The Thing You Love Most is a multichrome holo thats shifts from violet-red-gold-orange. The holo is between linear and scatter, and definitely obvious.





 Selfless, Brave & True is a multichrome holo thats shifts from cyan-purple-red-orange.





Available for purchase on October 15th from www.glampolish.com.au with shipping to Australia & USA shipping rates to USA are $7.95 for the first polish and an extra $1.00 for each addition polish.

Long Weekend Getaway Nails: Missoni Zig Zag Scratch

Happy Labor Day!! On the last day of the weekend I decided to stay home, get some rest and type up a post. I'm all worn out from the awesome road trip we were on the last two days : P 

Below are some fun nail pics I took during the trip, the first one was taken at Pebbly Beach. It was such a lovely day, the view was beautiful and totally perfect for a relaxing beach walk, soft warm sands under your feet and cool ocean breeze.


The next two pics were taken during wallaby feeding at Featherdale Wildlife Park yesterday, I love petting zoos XD obviously, because I love interacting with cute animals!! Besides the wallabies I also got to pet a koala and took a lot of pictures of koalas, trying so hard not to use up the storage on google, lol. I'll post the video of Archer, a very active and young koala, on my IG, he still got some baby fat (don't all of them have?!).



A closer look of the nail wraps, Missoni Zig Zag Scratch. They were sent to me last year, so I'm not sure if you can still find them. Here's my review for another Missoni wraps.

Glam Polish Mei Mei's Signatures Dark Terror Duo swatches, review and nail art

Hi lovelies,

Today I have the latest Mei Mei's Signatures exclusive Glam Polish shades to share with you. They're limited editions, only 140 numbered are created, and are sold as a duo only. Both polishes have amazing formulas as Glam Polish usually do, almost one coaters since they're pretty dark shades, I used two coats for the swatches though. They dried in a semi-matte finish, so a topcoat was applied.

Don't go in the Woods (LE) is a blackened forest green holo with emerald glass fleck shimmer. The glass flecks are slightly color shifting in person, which I didn't capture in the pictures at all : P the flecks shift from green to gold to pink.



And matching stamping for the polish, I used the tree pattern from BM-407.


So in love with this underwater shot, a very mysterious scenery.


Black Water (LE) - blackened blue holo with sapphire glass fleck shimmer. The flecks are more violet in person, which shifts to green in a very acute angle.



Again matching stampings, the pattern's from ESNA A32 stamp.



The duo is available from Mei Mei's Signatures now at the cost of SGD$37 per set.

Fireflies in the Field at Sunset inspired by Chalkboard Nails

Good morning lovelies!

So glad that I had time to do a mani for the last day of the challenge. I picked the fireflies at sunset mani Sarah (Chalkboard Nails) did for the gradient challenge for it, such a beautiful scenery and perfect replication, it's the "honor nails you love" I wanna do at first sight!

I used China Glaze Fancy Pants as my base, then sponged on the gradient with more colors, Sinful Colors Scandal, China Glaze Mimosa's before Mani's and Zoya Arizona; then painted the grass with Essie Licorice.

The halo of the fireflies was created with yellow acrylic paint using the bubble technique, if you're not familiar with the technique you should check out Sarah's post, it has a link for the tutorial there. The fireflies are just yellow dots, I used OPI Need Sunglasses? for them.





A pic of the nails with one of a million shakes I had yesterday, lol. This is lemon sorbet, mango sorbet with sparkling water, yummy! It's probably the shake I would be drinking while watching fireflies at sunset : )
