Halloween Special

  *Enter my first giveaway here! Open until October 31st 2012*

Happy Halloween! We don't really celebrate Halloween here in Australia, very few kids go trick-or-treating and I doubt that those who do get given much candy. However, we do love an excuse to dress up and be silly, so it's quite common for people to throw Halloween parties. With all that being said, I give you my Halloween nails:

Overcast light (don't those orange glitters pop!?)

Full sunlight (I only got 1 minute of sunlight so please excuse the sub-par photo)

Close up - full sunlight

Here I've used one coat of Gloss 'n Sparkle's 'Witches Britches' layered over OPI's 'Do You Lilac It?' on all my nails except my ring fingers. On those nails I've done a base of China Glaze's 'Liquid Leather' and used a nail art brush to paint on some stitches (or creepy fences if you would prefer) with OPI's 'A Good Man-darin Is Hard To Find' and 'Plugged-In Plum'. I've then stuck on some pumpkin fimo slices that I got from ebay a while back that I had no other appropriate use for.

'Witches Britches' is Gloss 'n Sparkle's limited edition Halloween polish. If you're in Australia there are still some bottles that can be purchased from the etsy store. For those of you outside of Australia, I believe that Angela will be providing Shoppe Eclecticco with half a dozen bottles when they start stocking her polishes in *hopefully* 2-3 weeks time (exact date is yet to be confirmed), so if you want a bottle make sure you jump on the opportunity. Join the Gloss 'n Sparkle facebook page to stay up to date :)

'Witches Britches' has a purple base (which is a cross between a creme and a jelly) and is packed with black, green (almost teal) and orange glitters in varying sizes. I love that this polish can be worn year round without screaming 'I'm a Halloween polish!'. Opacity can be reached in 3 coats but I'd recommend layering one or two coats over a similarly coloured polish. Application is really smooth and there's absolutely no fishing for glitters. Perfect! :)

Also! For those of you who love Rainbow Honey polishes, they're giving away a full set of the Yokai Collection, which are their limited edition Halloween polishes. Today is also your last chance to buy the polishes before they're removed from the website. Unfortunately being all the way down here in Australia mine still haven't arrived so I can't show you a review, but if you head over to Steffels blog she has swatches :) Click here to enter the giveaway.

So what about you guys? Do you celebrate Halloween in your country? Or is it just an excuse for a select few to dress up and be silly like it is here in Australia?

Unicorn Spawn: Revamped

 *Enter my first giveaway here! Open until October 31st 2012*

Quick post tonight! I got bored (ahem...procrastinating) so I've revamped my Unicorn Spawn mani. Here I've stamped some bows from plate QA36 (available from Meliney) using OPI's 'You're A Pisa Work'.

Artificial light

Unfortunately, the spots on the border of the bow really only showed up on my thumb. Can't explain that one!

ALSO! For those of you who missed the exciting news, Gloss 'n Sparkle will be stocked at Shoppe Eclecticco as of November (no exact date just yet sorry), so all you girls outside of Australia will be able to get your hands on Angela's amazing polishes. Shipping rates depend on how much you spend and where you live, but they seem reasonable compared with what I've seen from some other distributors. Their shipping details are here.

P.S. I've just added a couple of sections to my blog, one is a complete list of my polishes because people seem to be interested in that, and the second is a list with photos of my tutorials so that they're all in the one place to make it easy for you guys. Links are just under my blog header above :)

Unicorn Spawn

*Enter my first giveaway here! Open until October 31st 2012*

Fans of 'Unicorn Droppings' rejoice! Gloss 'n Sparkle have released a sister polish, 'Unicorn Spawn'. I must admit I was very excited to get this order in the mail. In fact, I had a rather heated wrestling match with the bubble wrap in my excitement. And before those of you who don't live in Australia tune out at the mention of Gloss 'n Sparkle, Angela has said that she has some exciting news to share with you international ladies on Sunday (hint hint...overseas stockist!). Join the Gloss 'n Sparkle facebook page to be the first to find out who it is!

Full sunlight

So this is 'Unicorn Spawn'. It has the same shimmery milky white base (which is super hard to photograph) as it's older sister 'Unicorn Droppings'. However, instead of those amazing vibrant rainbow coloured glitters in 'Unicorn Droppings', 'Unicorn Spawn' has pastel pink, blue, and yellow glitters. For me, this was love at first sight. You all know I love anything girly and I'm loving pastels at the moment.This is a perfect alternative to 'Unicorn Droppings' if you want a more subtle look, it reminds me of candy and cupcakes!

Above I've layered one coat of 'Unicorn Spawn' over Essie's 'Blanc' and then used Revlon's 'Blue Lagoon' to do a rough french tip. I played around with using torn tape as a mask to get this effect but found I could get a similar look by doing different stroke lengths with the brush. The formula of 'Unicorn Spawn' is the same as 'Unicorn Droppings', so check out my post here for info on that.

Bottle shot

For those of you in Australia who want to get your hands on 'Unicorn Spawn' you can buy it from the Gloss 'n Sparkle etsy store here. Those of you overseas...stay tuned! Angela also released five new polishes yesterday so go check those out, and there are still about 10 bottles of her limited edition Halloween polish 'Witches Britches' left. I finally got around to ordering mine so cross your fingers that I have it to show you by Halloween!

A First...

*Enter my first giveaway here! Open until October 31st 2012*

A quick blog post today guys (yeah yeah I know, when are my posts ever quick?). I've had friends pestering me for awhile to do their nails, but I've always declined because while it's one thing for me to do my own nails, it's a whole other thing to do someone else's. I tend to get nail polish all over my cuticles and didn't want to inflict that on someone else. This time though, I thought why not? So here you have it, my first attempt at painting someone else's nails:

Painting someone else's nails is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT from painting your own. I guess it's something that gets better with practice, but the angles are completely different and suddenly you're dealing with a nail shape that's different from your own. I think for a first attempt though this isn't too bad. My clean up job could have been a little better though. You'll have to forgive the photo quality, I usually take my photos outdoors in natural light, but since I did this at night I didn't have that luxury.

My friend requested something 'pink, lavender and sparkly'. Here I've used 2 coats of China Glaze's 'Light As Air' followed by a coat of China Glaze's 'Fairy Dust'. I've then freehanded a pink moon at the base of the nail using OPI's 'If You Moust You Moust', followed by dots using a dotting tool in Essie's 'Blanc' and OPI's 'If You Moust You Moust'.

Queen of Hearts

*Enter my first giveaway here! Open until October 31st 2012*

I'm busy at the moment trying to cram as much Japanese vocabulary into my head as I possibly can before my final speaking exam on Thursday, so sadly I'm still short on time. This unfortunately means no nail art until my next post, however, for those of you who like indie polishes I have a special one from Gloss 'n Sparkle to show you.

Overcast lighting (sorry guys, there was no sun this afternoon!)

Overcast lighting

Overcast lighting

This is 'Queen of Hearts'. For those of you who are familiar with the character from Alice in Wonderland (which I would hope is all of you), you will see why this is such a fitting name for this polish. The irregular shaped glitter reminds me of the chaos the Queen of Hearts leaves in her wake. In fact, I told Angela of Gloss 'n Sparkle this and she liked it so much that she included my quote on the 'Queen of Hearts' etsy listing (feeling just a little bit famous).

'Queen of Hearts' has a clear base filled with red, white and black matte glitters in all shapes and sizes, and red hearts. I wanted to stay true the Queen of Hearts' character, so I've layered it over China Glaze's 'No Name Yet' on my ring thingers and thumbs, and used Revlon's 'Rio Mango' on my other fingers. I'd love to try this over other colours sometime when I'm not trying to be so literal.

The consistency of 'Queen of Hearts' is perfect, not too gluggy or runny. Application was smooth and one coat supplies a generous amount of glitter. I did occasionally have to fish for the hearts, but since they're bigger than the other glitters they catch onto the brush easily. Anyone who hates fishing for glitters should really just avoid glitter polishes all together, let's face it, it's a trait common to pretty much all glitter polishes.

Bottle shot

Gloss 'n Sparkle polishes are available here. Since the introduction of the new bottles (which I'm quite liking by the way) Angela has dropped her prices from $10 to $9 a bottle due to the 1ml difference in bottle size. Personally I think she could easily continue to charge $10, her polishes are wonderful and how often do we actually finish a bottle of polish anyway? If you're interested in 'Queen of Hearts' or any other Gloss 'n Sparkle polishes I recommend not placing your order until Friday afternoon when Angela will be releasing more new colours (join the facebook page for swatch updates). Unfortunately shipping is still only available within Australia due to legal issues. Sorry international girls, I'll update you as soon as she manages to sort something out!

Flutterby Garden

 *Enter my first giveaway here! Open until October 31st 2012*

I'm a bit short on time at the moment, university is starting to heat up again with assignments and exams looming just around the corner. Unfortunately, this means that my posts might be a little bit delayed in the weeks to come, although I promise I'll try to be as organised as possible! Today you're in luck, I have a very pretty indie polish to show you. I didn't think that I'd get around to showing you this for a couple of weeks, but I was so dissatisfied with my last mani that it didn't last the distance. So, get ready for a bonus mani!

Full sunlight


Partial sunlight (excuse the top coat bubbles on the butterfly on the right!)

This is 'Flutterby Garden' by Emily de Molly. Flutterby Garden has green, lime, lavender and pink hex glitters, along with pink squares and some delicate green bar glitters all in a clear base. To top off this lovely glitter combo there are holographic butterflies thrown into the mix too. I bought a couple of other Emily de Molly polishes as well (which I'll show you at a later date), but this one is definitely my favourite. It's very girly and pretty without being pink/purple dominant which girly polishes generally are (obviously this also depends on what colour you choose to layer it over).

In the photo's above I've layered one coat of 'Flutterby Garden' over two coats of China Glaze's 'Light As Air', and finished off with Essie's 'Matte About You' topcoat. Note: the glitters in 'Flutterby Garden' are usually shiny, I just thought it looked nice mattified. I did use a dotting tool to put my normal shiny top coat just on the butterflies though, as they lost their holographic effect with the matte top coat and just appeared silver (hence the dodgy top coat you see in the photos haha). I should also mention that while I did occasionally (once) have to fish for the butterflies, they were quite easy to find and they love to stick to the brush, so it's hardly an issue and the pay off is well worth it. If you are 100% against fishing for glitters though then this one might not be for you.

Bottle shot

The Emily de Molly etsy store is currently on hiatus for a couple of weeks, however, this is good news. I know you're all thinking that this statement makes no sense, however, up until now Emily de Molly was only available to Australians due to shipping restrictions. The good news is that Llarowe have decided to stock Emily de Molly polishes, so everyone (except those in Italy) will be able to access them :) If you want to check out the range in the meantime I suggest liking the Emily de Molly facebook page. Polishes should be available again on the etsy store within a couple of weeks once Hayley from Emily de Molly has Llarowe set up with their stock :)

 *Enter my first giveaway here! Open until October 31st 2012*

I'm not one of those people who has a popular name that ends up on keyrings and mugs, in fact, my name never ends up on any sort of merchandise (not that I think I'd feel the need to buy a keyring with my name on it anyway). But keyrings and mugs aside, you can imagine my excitement when I realised that Zoya had a polish named after me. Well, not named after me as such, but we share the same name, and so I had to buy it for novelty's sake. It's been sitting on my rack untried for months. Until now...

Full sunlight - gold showing through

Full sunlight

This is Zoya's 'Anthea'. It's the only Zoya polish I own. I can't say that the colour is particularly 'me', but this was an impulse buy and I have to admit I don't have anything like it. It's a red colour that leans towards pink and has an orange undertone (complex right?). It also has a lovely pearlescent gold shimmer through it. Since my name means 'flower' I've stamped some flowers over the top from Konad plate m83. To be honest, I just felt like doing some stamping. Sounds more interesting when there's a story behind the design though right? :p

I'll admit I'm not at all happy with how this turned out, my stamping skills still need some practice and it's much less intricate than most of my nail art. Just to top things off, my new bottle of top coat streaked the stamping terribly. Guess you can't win them all.

Have you ever bought something you didn't need just because it had your name on it, or held novelty value for you?

Mermaid Tales

*Enter my first giveaway here! Open until October 31st 2012*

Today's mermaid tale is about a mermaid's tail (see what I did there?) Ok, I'll stop being lame now and just show you the photos...

Full sunlight


Indoors - artificial lighting

Close up - full sunlight

Are any of you still reading after this my obnoxious opening sentence? If you are, you will have figured out that these nails were inspired by mermaids, and from the colour combination you can tell that I watched 'The Little Mermaid' more than once as a child. As you can see I've cut my nails fairly short. It wasn't intentional, it was one of those things where you think to yourself "Hmmmm my nails are getting a bit long, I should probably file them back a little". Next thing you know you've filed one of them a bit too much and then have no choice but to do the rest to the other 9 nails. Aren't nail blogger's problems trivial?

The colours I've used are China Glaze's 'For Audrey' topped with one coat of Gloss 'n Sparkle's 'Spectra Flair' top coat (this is an amazing linear holo top coat that I'll show you in more detail some other time, it's most effective with two coats). I've then used a fine nail art brush to paint lines with OPI's 'Do You Lilac It' and finished off with some rose pink glitter pieces that I got from the Born Pretty Store.

Before I go, I very quickly want to let you know about a couple of upcoming collection launches, as well as some info about my Konad Q1 plate:

  • I know after seeing my Candy Land and Sherbet Sparrow designs some of you were lemming after the Konad Q1 plate, however, the plate was a limited edition plate released only in the UK and was quite expensive and difficult to get your hands on if you didn't live there. I have good news! Meliney now stock a copy of the plate, and it even has a couple of little candies on it that my Konad plate doesn't! It's $4.99AU which is much better than the $25 I paid for mine on ebay. I can't give a direct link, but if you visit the Meliney website and then click on 'store' and 'more image plates' it's on page 9 (it's plate MLS301). And yes, they ship worldwide.
  • Gloss 'n Sparkle are releasing their new polishes today (Friday October 12th) at 5:30pm AEST (that's 6:30pm for those of you on daylight savings time). All of their previous polishes will also be restocked in the new bottle shape. Unfortunately, Gloss 'n Sparkle are still only able to ship within Australia, but Angela is still working on sorting something out for you international girls. Don't give up hope! You can check out swatches of some of the new polishes on her facebook page.
  • Rainbow Honey are releasing their Yokai collection for Halloween tomorrow (Saturday October 13th). The collection consists of 3 colours inspired by Japanese spirits. For those of you in Australia, I've worked out that the release time of 12am EST is 2pm in Australia (3pm if you're on daylight savings time). For swatches of these colours check out the facebook page.
  • Pretty Serious have just released their Monster Mash collection for Halloween, as well as their limited edition 'Emma Louise' polish. Make sure you check it out before they're all gone!

50 Subscriber Giveaway!

Well guys, it took us a little while but we got there in the end. 50 Subscribers! Thank you to every single one of you, it means a lot to know that you want to share in my nail-obsessed adventure.

So, as promised, here is my first giveaway! As I've previously mentioned, it's only a small one since it's my first, but you can expect bigger and better things in future :) And yes, it's open internationally! Here's what's up for grabs:

1x Rainbow Honey 'The Worst Possible Thing' nail polish (7ml)
1x Rainbow Honey 'Sakura Matsuri' cuticle balm

'The Worst Possible Thing' 7ml *Image from the Rainbow Honey website*

Don't be fooled by the size of the lid in comparison with the bottle, these 7ml bottles still hold a generous amount of liquid, and one coat is all you need of this very special polish to realise it's full potential. If you're interested, you can read my review of 'The Worst Possible Thing' here. I wanted to show you how versatile this polish is, so I've updated my review with some swatches of it layered over a few different colours.

'Sakura Matsuri' Cuticle Balm *Image from the Rainbow Honey website*

The 'Sakura Matsuri' cuticle balm is an item I now swear by, I use it every time I take my nail polish off and I've seen an improvement in my cuticles since I started using it. Nail polish remover really dries out your skin and I find that the 'Sakura Matsuri' cuticle balm helps rehydrate it. And did I mention that it smells heavenly? Even if it didn't help my cuticles I'd use it just for the smell!

So, the part you've been waiting for, here's the entry form. I've tried to include enough options so that everyone can enter, and none of them are mandatory. Sorry for those of you on Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram though, I don't have any of those so I won't be including them. This giveaway will be open until the 31st of October (since time zones are different everywhere it's probably best to keep an eye on the countdown timer rather than trying to give a specific finish time). I've listed my terms and conditions below the entry form, so please give them a quick read. Good luck everyone!

First things first...we did it guys! We reached 50 SUBSCRIBERS! Thanks to everyone who has subscribed so far. This blog originally started out as a place for me to keep track of my nail art attempts, but it's turned into much more than that for me and I'm glad you all want to share in this journey too.  As you know I have a giveaway lined up, and I'll try and have that all sorted and ready to go by Wednesday night so stay tuned!

So, on to today's nail art. As promised, there's no pink (well, very little. You know I can't help myself). You'll have to excuse my nubby little nail on my index finger, sadly it snapped and I couldn't bring myself to cut the rest to match.

Sunlight! I only got 30 seconds of full sunlight, but managed to snap a couple of (sub-par) photos. Check out those holo diamond glitters!

Partial/overcast sunlight

Partial/overcast sunlight

Sadly it was overcast and threatening to rain all day, so I only have one full sunlight shot. I've used one coat of Rainbow Honey's 'Lunairetic' layered over OPI's 'Glitzerland'. I've then done a stripe of OPI's 'Plugged-In-Plum' and secured some 2mm gold square studs from the Born Pretty Store in my clear top coat. The red reflection in the studs in my photos is actually my camera, I didn't realise it was so obvious until I got the photos onto the computer. Oops!

I have to tell you a bit about 'Lunairetic' by Rainbow Honey, simply because this one really surprised me and I'm in love! (But then again, are there any Rainbow Honey polishes that I don't fall in love with?). 'Lunairetic' is from the Chrono Cross collection. Chrono Cross is a Playstation game that was released about 12 years ago. Has anyone played it? I played some of it's predecessor, Chrono Trigger, when it was released on Nintendo DS in 2008 (yes, I'm a dork), but I can't say that I know the story behind Chrono Cross. Nevertheless, I love where Rainbow Honey draws her inspirations from. For anyone who has played the game, Rainbow Honey says that 'Lunairetic' was inspired by Harle's Level 7 tech and the gorgeously bright moon she eclipses.

As you can see, 'Lunairetic' is absolutely PACKED with glitter, and while it is a teensy bit thick, it's also very manageable. If you were concerned about the thickness you could always add some thinner, but personally I'm not going to bother. When I ordered this polish I was a bit concerned that the polish was going to be a bit too 'busy' for my liking, now that I have it in person though I think it's absolutely perfect. 'Lunairetic' contains red, gold, purple and magenta glitters as well as holographic hex and diamond glitters. This isn't one of those glitters where you need to fish for the diamonds either, there's tonnes of them in there. Since I couldn't get a decent bottle shot due to the weather here's the shot from the Rainbow Honey website:

Bottle shot from Rainbow Honey website

You can purchase Rainbow Honey polishes here. She has also just announced her 'Yokai' collection for Halloween which will be released on October 13th. I'm super excited about the collection even though it's a possibility that orders won't arrive here in Australia in time for the 31st (I've found that shipping tends to take just over 2 weeks). If you want to see the swatches of the collection as she's releasing them you can stay up to date on her facebook page.

花見 Hanami

  ***Remember to subscribe! I'll be holding my first giveaway at 50!***

My plan was to only do one pink post for Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), but on Monday Rainbow Honey announced that they would be supporting BCAM, and what do you know, on Wednesday I received my Rainbow Honey nail mail. Put two and two together and you can work out what's coming...'Think Pink - Part 2'.

Full sunlight

Full sunlight - see that iridescent shimmer!

Full sunlight

This is 'Hanami' ( 花見) which means 'flower viewing' or 'cherry blossom viewing' in Japanese (once again my Japanese classes are coming in handy). Here I've layered 'Hanami' in a gradient effect over OPI's 'Got A Date To-knight!'. I originally swatched this over a darker pink in an attempt to use a polish that wasn't featured in my last post, but the glitter just got lost. 'Hanami' definitely looks most effective over a light base.

'Hanami' is a "beautiful blend of rose, pink, white, and iridescent glitters in a sheer and shimmery pink base" (Rainbow Honey website). There are medium sized hexes and small glitters in shiny rose pink, and smaller hexes and shredded pieces in matte white. The combination of shiny and matte glitters is interesting. Application of 'Hanami' was great, no fishing for glitters and no need to place them on your nail as coverage is even.

My only gripe? The reason I fell in love with 'Hanami' was those amazing iridescent glitters that flash lilac purple. These are particularly prominent in the bottle, but not so much on the nail. I'm guessing this is simply because the polish has more depth in the bottle than on the nail. I almost wish this polish had some small lilac coloured glitters in there so that the lilac was still as prominent on the nail as it is in the bottle. To show you what I mean, here's a bottle shot of 'Hanami' taken from the Rainbow Honey facebook page.

Bottle shot (taken from the RH facebook page)

Beautiful right? It's still a very pretty glitter and I definitely recommend it, just don't expect the lilac flashes to be so prominent on your nail unless you really build it up. Personally, I'm more of a one-coat-of-glitter kind of girl. I did play around with a matte top coat which brings the lilac out more, so that's another option you can try.

So, after all of that you've probably forgotten what I said about Rainbow Honey supporting BCAM. During the month of October, for every full sized (15ml) bottle of pink polish sold, Rainbow Honey will donate $1 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. You'll also receive an awareness bracelet. If you want to know more about this you can read Rainbow Honey's blog post here.

The Rainbow Honey pink polishes include:
The full size (15ml) polishes are $10 each, and international shipping is $16.95 for up to 10 bottles. If you're lucky enough to live in America where Rainbow Honey is based then shipping is $5.95. If you've been considering getting some Rainbow Honey polishes, now really is the time to do it, and there's no need to feel guilty because you're giving back to a worthy cause :)

For anyone who hates pink, you're probably sick of the millions of blog posts parading pink nails at the moment (even if it is for a good cause and to raise awareness). I promise there won't be a trace of pink in sight in my next post!

Think Pink

  ***Remember to subscribe! I'll be holding my first giveaway at 50!***

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (or BCAM). Yep, it's that one month of the year when products everywhere sport pink packaging. I have no issues with this, as most of you have figured out my favourite colour is pink! My Aunty was diagnosed with breast cancer several years ago, and while she was strong enough to overcome it many women aren't so lucky. As such, I'm doing my little bit to raise awareness with my pink manicure for the start of October.

So as you might have figured, I couldn't pick just one shade of pink. This is my strange take on ombre nails using OPI's 'You're A Pisa Work', 'If You Moust You Moust', and 'Got A Date To-knight!', topped with 'Nothin Mousie Bout It' without the heart glitters. Unfortunately the weather was not on my side today, so all my photos were taken in rainy overcast lighting. It's probably a bit hard to see, but I've sponged the colours onto my index and ring fingers to create a smooth transition between the shades of pink.

So, there are several pink products being promoted for BCAM, but these are my two lemmings:

1. OPI's 'Pink Of Hearts 2012'
So I want this for obvious reasons. It's pink and it's nail polish. 'Nuff said. The twin pack contains 'I Think In Pink' which is OPI's signature BCAM polish as well as 'You Glitter Be Good To Me' which as you can guess is a glitter polish (Google for swatches). Both bottles are the full 15ml size. The pack is currently available from David Jones in Australia for AU$24.95. 100% of the profits go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). China Glaze have also released a collection of 12 polishes for BCAM too, but I haven't heard of these being released in Australia. Does anyone have any information on this?

2. GHD's 'Pink Cherry Blossom Styler'
While my current GHD is about 5 years old, it still works perfectly, so I'm not entirely sure whether I can justify making this purchase (as much as I want to!). The styler has shimmering pink plates and comes with a satin heat-resistant bag with cherry blossom embroidery detail. In additon to being pink, the cherry blossoms just make me want it even more considering my love of Japan as a country. The styler retails for AU$289 and is available from the GHD website with free shipping, or alternatively it's available in salons nationwide. $20 from this goes to the NBCF.

For a partial list of some of the pink products available for BCAM see the NBCF website (I say partial because I know of some other products such as Berlei bras that aren't listed there). Are you lemming after any pink products for BCAM?
