Mirenesse - Silent Mauvy

I just threw this on quickly before my daughter's school Christmas concert in December so not much time for photos. I chose this because apparently it doesn't need base coat or top coat and I didn't have time to do either.

Mirenesse have great products but they are a bit expensive so lucky this one came free with a magazine.

Mirenesse have a VIP club where you pay a certain amount each month and they send you a package every 3 months and you also get discounted products and free postage if you need to purchase other products. I had to drop out of that as I have received so many products that I'm still working my way through.  I highly recommend their products both skin care and make up and of course nail polish.

Their new Glamm boxes are also worth a look at too.

Ninja Polish - He Went to Jarred

When Ninja Polish restock, you've got to be quick to get what you want.

This is the 12K white gold topcoat called He Went to Jarred.  I've layered it over China Glaze First Class Ticket which is a beautiful dark purple.

He Went to Jarred is beautiful although the clear base is quite thick and some of the gold flakes are larger than what I would like or compared to Zoya Gilty.  I found that the flakes also required careful placement on the nail rather than just being able to swipe it on. The white gold is gorgeous and can be layered over many colours.

Beauty Bay Limited Edition Beauty in Demand Box

I was lucky enough to order one of these beauty in demand box's from Beauty Bay during their Advent Calendar promotion.  Apparently these sold out almost instantly.  I ordered on 14 Dec and it arrived here in Australia on 27 Dec which is pretty good considering all the public holidays during that time.

I received 5 products that I am very happy with and they arrived in a very nice box that has a magnetic closure and was tied with ribbon.

1. Tangle Teezer brush
2. Matrix Shine Endure Spritz Firm Hold Shine Spray
3. China Glaze nail polish - China Rouge
4. BareMinerals Glimmer - Summer
5. Stila Lip Glaze - Jingle

Zoya Gilty Trio

Zoya Gilty Trio

This was one of my Christmas presents. My husband bought this for my daughter to give to me. He's such a good thoughtful husband.

The 3 polishes come in a nice little gift box. They all have a really good formula and go on nicely and dry to a smooth finish.

Purity (white) - bright white, no shimmer
Raven (black) - shiny black with a very slight shimmer
18K Real Gold TopCoat - absolutely brilliant, the gold doesn't clump and spreads easily

I highly recommend getting these if you can. They're gorgeous and once you've got the gold topcoat you can layer it over any other colour that you want.

(These pics looked great and were nice and bright til I uploaded them to Blogger and now they look dull so I'm not sure what's going on there.  Think Blogger is having problems because it also won't let me upload any new photos).

NYE Nails 2012 - Loki's Lacquer 3 Wise Men

Happy New Year

This is what I wore last night for New Year's Eve.  I got an iPod Touch for Christmas so I was experimenting with taking photos on it and using the collage app.

This polish is called 3 Wise Men and is made by Aussie Indie brand, Loki's Lacquer.

3 Wise Men has gold squares, iridescent squares, brown glitter and ultra fine copper glitter.

I've layered it over Ulta3 Crystallina with an accent nail of Zoya Jules.

On the nail wheel I also tried it over Zoya Zara (3rd from left) Zoya Neeka (4th from left).

You can keep updated with Loki's Lacquer on Facebook and purchase through Etsy.
