Shattered Turquoise!

I finally got hold of the Essie Resort 2010 Collection. This is the first one i'll show from the collection. I'm sure you've all seen them on other blogs etc seeing as it IS the 2010 collection haha but i don't care, this is my blog! haha.

This is Essie's Turquoise & Caicos. This is my first Essie and i love it! It applied well. This was 3 Coats.

After wearing this yesterday, I added Silver Shatter last night before going to bed.

I personally love the shatters and i am not over them yet. I just received my blue & Turquoise shatter and am yet to play around with them. I also want the China Glaze Metal shatters too but am yet to own any. 
What do you think of the shatters? Do you own any? Whats your favourite combination?

Bye for now

NOTD + Some Frankening!

This is todays nails! Colour Club's scented polish in Raspberry Rush. Seems familiar? i realised after putting it on, i'd already done this colour not long ago! Who cares? right? I then stamped it with Color Clubs Revvvolution and with the bow from the Konad Plate, M59. 

Lately i have been playing around and frankening up some polishes! This is what i came up with for one of them. It was Ulta3's Silver Grey and i added the Silver Hologram Glitter i got from Coastal Scents a few weeks back!

It turned out ok. It looks a bumpy mess but there is so much holo going on, you barely notice it IRL! I was going to do one thin coat over the CC Raspberry Rush i already had on but that didn't work out the way i was hoping. I don't know why i even thought it would work! Derh!!!! So i slapped a second coat on after that. Sorry, no clean up was involved because as soon as i took the photos, i went back inside and took it all off! Franken Fail? or is it really ok? I might call this franken "Space Cadet" unless someone else has a better name for it?

ohhhh holo goodness!

Stay tuned for some more frankens coming up soon.

Milani 3D - Hi-res!

Just a quick one. This is what i wore on Thursday and Friday to work!

Can't go wrong at $3-99 a bottle though!

Sorry my post was so short on words today but i have lots to do and i really wanted to put this up and procrastinate on housework before i go out tonight haha
Hope you all enjoy your weekend!

Massive haul! (pic heavy)

I got these from an eBay seller that doesn't really sell a lot on eBay anymore. I just emailed them my wish list and they tell me out of that, what is in stock and what isn't. I then send my final list to them and they sent me a PayPal invoice. Pretty easy! The polishes are a little bit dearer than the likes of nailetc and some other ebay sellers but you do get FREE, FAST worldwide shipping! Well, as long as you buy 10 or more polishes. One (out of 27) did break in transit so they sent out a new one straight away.  It took just over one week to get to me and one week exactly to get the replacement bottle. It was the first time i bought from them and i'm definitely happy and i would buy from them again! Anyway, on to the polishes!
I had a crappy time trying to photograph these polishes, i have no photography skills whatsoever! and a crappy camera, in fact, in the end these were taken on my iPhone, along with taking these when the sun was going down! So sorry in advance!

Gargantuan Green Grape, You Don't Know Jacques, Teal The Cows Come Home.

Turquoise Shatter, Blue Shatter.

 Play the Peonies, Be A Dahlia Won't You, Come To Poppy, I Lily Love You

Wow, that was all of them! I haven't had much of a play around with them yet but i can't wait to use them! I'm also still waiting on more polishes to come. Yes, more! haha 
If anyone wants details on the eBay seller just sent me an email. Also, just letting you all know, I bought these with my own money and i am not affiliated with this company. I just wanted to let you all in on this awesome seller and i'll be buying from them again in the future.

Enjoy the rest of your day,
Bye for now! xo

Weekend Mani!

Hi all,
Just a quick one today. My partner picked out these colours for me to wear over the weekend. I think he did a good job. I got these two colours i'm wearing, in my recent BIG Haul, which i am yet to post up as i was waiting for replacement colour that broke, to arrive. Now that it is here, i will have a haul post next week!

Ben (the partner) picked OPI The One That Got Away from the Katy Perry collection. It is a deep berry wine colour with glass flecks which doesn't photograph very well! It applied well with 2 smooth coats. I didn't think i liked this or was going to get it but i loved it when i saw it in the "flesh" at DJ's (before buying online haha). 

He then picked Teenage Dream, from the same collection to lay over the top. This was one coat of a VERY Sheer pink with lots of small silver glitter and sparse big holo glitter.

Crappy inside pic.

Blurred to show holo goodness!

Enjoy what's left of your weekend!

Coastal Scents Haul!

Yay! Finally got my package from Coastal Scents yesterday! Can't wait to have a play around with these!

Silver Hologram, Black Magic Hologram, Fairy Dust (holo), Ocean Blue.
1 ounce of each so should last a while!

Silver Hologram, Black Magic Hologram, Fairy Dust (holo), Ocean Blue.

Cappuccino, Sahara Sand, Purple Punch.
All just a sample size, 1 Teaspoon. 

Capuccino, Sahara Sand, Purple Punch.

The Particles size for all Pigments (except Silver Holo, that is 0.006) were 0.004 so these are safe for face, eyes, lips and of course in Nail Polish! 

It seems they threw in a sample of Mica Pigment Sample in Bordeaux. Looks amazing! 

I also got these! 10 little measuring spoons! They were only $1-40 for the lot so i couldn't pass it up as i'm hopeless when it comes to being careful and not spilling any! haha. Not that i need 10!

I can't wait to have a play around with these on the weekend and i'll let you know what i come up with! :)
Happy Friday! Enjoy your weekend!

OPI Teal The Cows Come Home!

Have you ever looked at a car and thought the colour would look good on your nails! I have! and i'm sure most of us have at some stage! haha. This is probably my dream car or something close to it! i WILL own one, one day soon! It's a Ford Falcon BA XR6 Ute in Blueprint!

 Clicky to take in all its glory!

And i think OPI Teal the Cows Come Home is a pretty close "dupe" if you would call it!
I wouldn't call this "teal" It's more Turquoise with some shimmer to it, not quite Metallic. It was a little streaky which disappeared when dried. Excuse the thumb, i have a "silk wrap" on. I have a nasty tear in the side of my nail :(

3 coats, outside shade

Outside, Sunlight

Then i did a little bit of freehand nail art with my LA Colors Art Deco striper in White. Sorry these next three pics show my lobster hands as they were taken in crappy lighting at night!

Looked ok! I didn't like the middle finger though!

Enjoy your day! Bye for now! xo

Hi Guys
As you can see i've changed my blog up a bit. I will be doing a few changes to it still, so if it doesn't quite look right, don't worry, i'm probably right in the middle of fixing and adjusting everything :) especially the txt, :( It's being such a bugger, i may have to change each post manually.
You'll also notice that my blog name has changed. I bought a domain name last week and found Kelly's Kolours and Konads is a bit long and i wanted to shorten it. So now, i give you "Kelly's Kolors", That's right, no "u" in Kolors. I thought it would reach a more wider audience, not sure why i thought that seeing as it's starting with a "K" anyway haha. The old web link still works and is fine to use so you don't need to change anything, it will just redirect you to my .com address. This is still through blogger.
Gumleaf Mafia girls, if you could kindly change my name/link to the new one, that would be great!

Bye for now! xo

OPI Nice Stems Collection!

I received one of my massive orders yesterday in the mail! So excited for it to arrive and early at that! I wasn't expecting it until Monday at the earliest! In that order, I got the OPI Nice Stems polishes. 
At first i didn't want them all but definitely wanted Come to Poppy. The collector in me, was saying "buy them all" even though i would never wear Play the Peonies, and Be a Dahlia Won't You didn't look that unique and might even have a dupe out there somewhere! So i ended up getting the Mini's. Problem solved? Not really, i kinda regret it. I really should have just got a full sized Come to Poppy. Don't get me wrong the others are nice colours too, but i just wouldn't wear them! At least those ones are only mini's i guess. Mini's are also a PITA! They really are just too small which means the brush is too small and kind of a waste, in my honest opinion. Anyway, on to the pics! 

L-R: I Lily Love You, Play the Peonies, Come to Poppy, Be a Dahlia Won't You.

Play the Peonies, 3 coats then PTP with 1 coat of I Lily Love You.
Be a Dahlia Won't You, 2 coats then BDWY with 1 coat ILLY
Come to Poppy, 2 coats then CTP with 1 coat ILLY
I Lily Love you, 1 coat then I Lily Love You 3 coats.

Play the Peonies is a very pale pinky pearl colour, it was a little bit streaky which you can see and it also didn't help that i was using the mini brush. Not that fond of this colour and i don't really like I Lily Love you over it. It looks a streaky mess.

Be A Dahlia Won't You is a shimmery fuchsia in a jelly like base. This one has grown on me a lot since owning it but i have colours similar (but not dupes) to this.

Come to Poppy is my absolute favourite! The one i wanted from the start. It is a pink coral with lots of shimmer. I really love this. It could be that i don't have many corals and i was on the hunt for corals but this is a beauty! I think the must have if you were to get just one from the collection!

I Lilly Love You is of course better used as a layering top coat. It has flakes not quite holo, rainbow glitter of different shapes and sizes all suspended in a sheer pink jelly.

Blurred close up of I Lily Love You.

Hope you all enjoy your Thursday! Bye for now!

Jeans for Genes Day! NOTD

Today is Jeans for Genes day! So my nails today are inspired by that! A week or two ago i posted THIS about the nail polish vending machine i found on my recent trip to QLD. Well i'm am using that polish in today's post. It's from an Aussie brand PiCture pOlish! It's called Denim (get it now haha).

 It applied ok, was fairly thick, you could get away with one coat but i did two and some nails i even did three. It was a tiny goopy by the time i did the second/third coat, so thin coats would be better! It's a "blurple" type colour with little glass flecks with blue and purple micro glitter.

To go with this i may even wear my Jeans to work today! hehe
Enjoy your friday!
