A Little Understated...

 *** Remember to enter our 1st Birthday Giveaway! Open internationally. ***

I did have some nail art planned for you guys, but I had a rather eventful (or uneventful depending how you look at it) weekend that consisted of food poisoning and my first ever experience with hay fever, so unfortunately my nail painting got cut short after the first layer of polish and I was left with mannequin hands. Why oh why did I choose OPI 'My Vampire Is Buff' as the base colour for said nail art? All sickness aside though, I do have something to show you:

Lamp light (facing away from light source)

Lamp light (facing in to light source - more colour accurate)

This is China Glaze 'Luxe And Lush' layered over OPI 'My Vampire Is Buff' (which was to be the base for my nail art before my nose started creating a puddle). I'll have to save that nail art to show you guys another time I'm afraid. I must say though, I'm pleasantly surprised at how much I love this combination. It's much more neutral than anything I would normally wear, but I'm ok with that. 'My Vampire Is Buff' works wonderfully with my skin tone, and 'Luxe And Lush' adds an elegant sparkle without being too over the top. I think this is one of those rare glittery combos that would still be acceptable if you worked in a corporate environment.

What do you guys think? Maybe my illnesses turned out to be a blessing in disguise? Or maybe not. I don't know if I'd want to go through all that again just to discover one polish combo!


  1. Luxe And Lush is so gorgeous! -adds to wishlist, haha-

  2. Hello I love your blog and your nails. I started my blog a little while, hope you can honor me with your visit. In it I write about Brazilian glazes. Hugs. Carolina
