Gold Gradient

Hello everyone!
Hope your day is going well. I am hoping to get rid of some nail polish, to only keep my favourites, and do some nailart posts rather then just swatches. But I will still do swatches whenever I get new nail polish.

Today's post is a gradient I did using as a base Orly's Ola, and on top Milani Gold Glitz.

I love the base color, corals, oranges and other combinations of the two are really my favourite colors for nail polish. This Milani is one of the one coat glitters. I love the way they look together hope you like it too.

Butter London - Disco Biscuit

As some of you who follow me on IG have seen, I only have one Butter London, that Carolina sent me from the states, because we can't find these polishes in France.

I love everything about these polishes!! I am totally in love! The shape of the bottles is to die for, the brush is great, the formula is excellent, and so on.

The color I chose is a red to fuchsia jelly with little blue sparkles. The color on its own needs about 4 coats to get it opaque, so I decided to apply it over a similar pink cream - Kiko 313. I applied one coat of the Kiko, and on top of that one coat of Disco Biscuit. This polish needs topcoat, since it dries a bit gritty.

It lasted very well on me for like 4 days, no chips. It lasted 4 days, because I decided to take it off, cause you know me I get bored, not because it chipped.

Here are the photos:

Jail bars

Hello people!!
Yet another day in the life of a polish freak. I am going through my favourite polishes at the moment, and wearing them with a lot of pleasure.I am now wearing my favourite dark burgundy Zoya Anja, a very good formula, and gorgeous color, almost a one coater.

I applied on my middle finger a coat of Kleancolor Salsa much, and then stamped a design from my Bundle Monster plate BM 209 with Kiko 400.

I think it came out pretty ok, but not impressive.
Anyway here are the photos, hope you like it: Sorry for the crappy hand pose, this is my right hand which normally takes the photos, but since on my left hand I messed up the design......

Golden day

I have decided to stop buying nail polish, unless it is really a color I don't own. I have already reduced my polish purchases a looooot. I am also thinking of having a blog sale, in order to purge some of the polishes, because let's face it I can't honestly use up 500 bottles of nail polish in a lifetime. So why not pass them along to somebody else, who will get more use out of them than me.

So let me know if a blog sale would be of any interest to you. I will do an international one.

Also since I have no new polishes to show you, today's post is a revisit with an old friend - Essie Playa del Platinum, and a small nail art I did ( that is if you can call it nail art).

I really love this nude. I rarely wear them, but this one looks great on small nails. I had to cut them down, because they started peeling again, and then breaking.

The accent nail is China Glaze I'm not lion, and the stamping is done with Dior Timeless Gold and my Konad stamping plate n°M78. Hope you like it as much as I do.
