“Oh my 4th of July”

I made this a long time ago but have been a very bad blogger and have not posted for a longg time. This is my absolute fave and looks best over Black, Blue or Red in my opinion. Here are some photos because words are failing me..

Bloomin’ Labels!

Took me forever to align the labels with the document, but got it sorted. Looks slightly profesh :’)

“Cosmic Rubble” DO-OVER

Excuse the pun but, i’ve NAILED IT! Cosmic Rubble has had a make over and is now less of a cheap whore and more of an elegant, mysterious woman! Completely new glitter and I’m really happy with the result. This can only really go over Black/Navy/Naked nail because the intended effect is to look like a starry night so that is why there isn’t a variety of base coloured photos. This is the polish that started my idea of creating polishes so I’m super happy with how it has turned out and I hope you like it too!

 

“Precious Petals”

Because Spring/Summer are the best for dressing like a girl, I have concocted a little floral inspired polish. It’s called “Precious Petals” because the glitter looks like delicate little pieces of petal confetti. There are lots of pastel shades in this and also little daisy shaped glitter. I really like this on a nude nail as it’s so girly and sparkly 🙂

“Flamingo Fling” Revamped

So, I’ve had a play around over the last few weeks and have decided to go for a high quality glitter over the previous glitter used in FF. It’s a slightly different colour but it’s a lot brighter and it has a dash of heart shaped glitter too. It’s still the most subtle of the polishes but I really like it and I hope you do too 🙂

“Saved by the 90’s” take 2

After playing with different base coats, I’ve decided I do like this polish so this will be joining my initial collection. Yey! The photos are without a flash, which is why they will look dark, but I wanted the true colour of the glitter to be seen. Each pop has one layer of base colour, one layer of llo polish and one layer of Seche Vite top coat. Take a look-see:

“Saved by the 90’s!”

This started as a graffiti inspired polish after I went to an event in Birmingham called “Sneaks and Peaks”. Super rad event which you can catch up on here:

The colour palette of the polish was inspired by this piece.

Graf.
So I made the polish and it’s pretty but every time I look at it, I just see hideous/beautiful 90’s shell suit jackets and Saved by the Bell’s opening theme tune background.

This is my hideous jacket which my boyf’s mum calls the “Jimmy Saville Jacket that can’t step foot in my house” *sigh*. Lucky for her, I only wore it to a 90’s party last year. But I still can’t help but think it’s cool…
jim'll fix it

As a child of the 90’s, I do feel I should honour the hideous decade of obscene colour clashing that brought me so much joy, but to be honest, I’m not 100% sure about whether I love this one or not, so feedback would be super 🙂 Heres a little look at what I have so far on a blue base:

“I ♥ LDN”

Following a year of British triumphs and a general love affair with the big ol’ Capital, I have come up with a Polish which I have named “I ♥ LDN”. As I read the name of this polish to myself, I say it in tune with the Crystal Fighters song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGZbIZRAUM4) which makes it seem so much more rad than it actually is.

A big part of the colour scheme is do with my fave little guys, the Royal guards  (my socks are so much better than the real people!)

I especially like it over the glitter blue because I think it looks quite union jack-y.

“Sea-greed Siren”

Remember the merpeople in Harry Potter?! Well, this is what this polish is inspired by. Its kinda sexy, mermaid lookin’ but murky and dangerous too.

The pictures to follow are on a dark blue base coat to look like a dark sea. Anyway, take a looksee! Please excuse my terrible paint job and workman’s hands.

“Star Glazer/Cosmic Rubble”

I have long searched for a glitter polish that looked like a night’s sky but have never found what I had in mind. For me, they have always been boring [insert dark colour here] with a touch of sparkle. NOT GOOD ENOUGH!
I’m currently in the process of making a BUSY night’s sky with a quantity of glitters. It does need a little tweaking still, I want it slightly darker and more stars! But, here it is so far – Sorry about the messy painting/bad photo.
