Sparkly Moons with Shimmer Erica and Sally Hansen Green Tea

A quick post showing a mani I created using Sally Hansen Green Tea as base and Shimmer Polish Erica for the triangle moons which I created by masking the area with tape. Let me know what you think. X

Dior Diorling and Windsor - Harrods Exclusives

Hi ladies today I have for you the two limited edition Dior polishes that were available exclusively at Harrods during their Dior at Harrods promotion.

Diorling is lovely light pink polish that is quite sheer but builds nicely in 3 coats. It's similar in colour to Dior Tutu but slightly more skintone/nude.

Windsor, a dark shimmery charcoal grey is the complete opposite to Diorling. You only need one coat for complete coverage, however, because it's a bit brush strokey you may need two to even the finish.

Thanks for reading. xXx

A word of warning

I had heard stories of Royal Mail clamping down on nail polishes being sent internationally but had not been a victim of their searches until today!

I got a snotty letter and the original envelope with all the content missing (including a lipgloss!!! yes because that's going to bring down a plane). What I don't understand is why they couldn't return the nail polishes. They let us send to UK addresses so what difference would it make? My theory is that they keep it all and sell it on.

Luckily this was a test package and I didn't send any polishes that were HTF!

Sorry it didn't get to you Barb :(!

Have any of you ladies been a victim?

China Glaze Fancy Pants topped with Penelope Luz Geisha

The lovely Barb generously sent me Penelope Luz 'Geisha' which I have decided to pair with China Glazer 'Fancy Pants'.

Geisha is similar to China Glaze Scattered & Tattered but instead of having foil glitters it has matte ones.

China Glaze Keep Calm, Paint On and OPI gold flakes

Hello is there anyone there!?

Work/life has been getting in the way of my blogging as you can probably tell but don't worry I'm not about to quit. Although I have to admit nothing has been wowing me recently and I've not had any urgency to buy or get swatches of new collections posted. I'm saving money as a result so it's not all bad!

Enough talking, here is the lovely China Glaze "Keep Calm, Paint On" topped with some gold flakes (OPI "The Man with the Golden Gun"). KCPO is a lovely minty green with silver shimmer. The formula was a little odd on this one as it dragged when I was a bit eager to paint the 2nd/3rd coat. It was ok when I put thicker layers on and let them dry properly. TMWTGG required a bit of fishing around but I expected that as it was a flaky. Overall I love this combo. Do you?
