He's going in Circles!

Thought i might do a different colour today. I didn't realise i did so many blues in row! I just seem to grab what i felt like wearing out of the draw and they all happened to be blues. Well, not Today! Today i have a green.... A Holo green!
This is China Glaze - He's going in Circles. It's from their 2006 Kaleidoscope Collection.


 Outside shade


A Seafoam Green Holo. This was 3 coats but really could 
of used a 4th. Still a bit of VNL showing.

Have a great Thursday!

NOTD & my purchases from the last week!

Today's nails are China Glaze's For Audrey. This is one of my favourite colours. It is not an exact dupe for the Tiffany & Co. Blue but it's pretty damn close.

This is 2 Coats.

Over the last week i bought the mini 6pk OPI Avojuice skin quenchers lotions. I got these at David Jones on sale for $12-95 instead of the $19-95 they normally are. I guess because we are out of summer heading into winter and that's wheni really need them most. I'm glad i waited a week or two to get these, i almost paid full price. hehe.

L- R: Coconut & Melon, Ginger lilly, Cran & Berry,
Jasmine, Raspberry Violet, Mango.

Cran & Berry is my favourite closely followed by coconut & Melon. Can't wait to try these and might have to get a full sized bottle of a couple of these for summer! 

I also received my package this week i've been waiting for.
I got 2 Deborah Lippman Polishes. I've never had any lippman polishes until now :-D
I haven't used these yet so i'm excited to try them.

L-R: Glitter in the Air, Happy Birthday.

Happy Monday!

At work, when i'm trying to serve a customer and they answer their mobile/get it out to ring someone. -_-  or when i put my hand out for their money and they throw the money on the counter.. yeah sure i'll pick up your $5-80 all in 20, 10 and 5c pieces.

OPI Ski Teal We Drop!

Today's nails are OPI's Ski Teal We Drop. It is from the 2010 Swiss Collection.

A dark Blue-ish Teal Creme. 2 Coats

I then tried to Konad/BM it and it was a fail! I'm having trouble with the new BundleMonster plates. I don't have trouble with Konad or the first gen. BM but i am with the new set. it wouldn't pick up all the image. I tried and tried, then when it eventually did i went to stamp it on my nail and most stuck down on my nail while some parts didn't and it turned out like this.

That was plate 214 and was supposed to be the leaves. Stamped with Konad White.

Is anyone else having problems with the new BundleMonster Plates??

Mode Blue Steel & BM

Here i have for you an Aussie brand nail polish Mode. Today's colour is Blue Steel, one of the three i picked up from the chemist on the weekend.

I umm'd & arhh'd about getting this polish but thought what the hell it's only $2-45!!! What an amazing colour. I really love it and i am glad i got it in the end! It looked streaky in the bottle and i thought i'd have trouble with that but i didn't. I was thinking it would be more grey but its definitely blue with some shimmer. It is exactly as it's name suggests. This was 2 coats.

I also received my Bundle Monster plates in the mail on Monday. I haven't had a chance to do any stamping yet but i am loving the skulls and the gingerbread man and can't wait to try them out! The skulls might be the first to use. 

 (sorry they are a bit linty and dirty, i dropped them all over the floor
and didn't realise how dirty they were until i went to upload it here)

 If you've bought the first Gen. bundle moster plates you will know that they are quite sharp because they didn't have any backing, smaller designs that don't fit some nails and had a clear film on top that you had to remover prior to using. Well..... Bundle Monster your amazing! You listened to everyones feedback about the plates! The new plates now have a backing on them just like the Konad ones. They still have a tiny bit of sharpness to them but nothing like they were before. They have bigger images so they can fit your whole nail including Thumb nail, and they also have a clear blue plastic on top so you can actually see that the plastic needs to be removed before use.

Have a happy "Hump Day"..... Ohh and May the 4th be with you! (sorry had to do it)
