“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:

“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.

“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.

“Flamingo Fling”

One of my favourite things about visiting Cyprus (where my family live) is the drive from the airport where we pass the beautiful salt lake. Each summer, the flamingos visit and it is one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen.

So, in honour of my favourite bird, I am coming up with a polish centred around the fabulous flamingo. It’s going to be a delicate glitter polish with a romantic feel – after all, the flamingo’s are in love. The photos I have taken are not the finished product, I’m thinking chunky pastel pinks against a darker brighter pink with a dash of blue. But this is at least a start.
