China Glaze Ruby Pumps!

I have a classic to show you today! Ruby Pumps! I know you've seen it all before but you will see it again... here... Today!

Ruby Pumps is from way back in 2001 when it came out in the original Wizard of oz collection and then China Glaze decided to re-release it again in 2009 to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the movie. This was 3 Coats of beautiful red sparkliness! Went on like a dream! I'm not a big red fan and you probably won't see me wear red much at all but has got to be one of the best colours i think China Glaze has done.

I then did some stamping with the full image design of the shoes from the bundle monster plate BM-213. I never actually thought i would use the shoe design! I am not a "shoe person" but i thought it was fitting to use it here! sorry about some of the stamping fail on the index and middle fingers. Worked as i planned it to on my pinky finger though! I also used the big bow from Konad plate M59 for the ring finger. All was done in Konad black special polish.

Enjoy the rest of your day and stayed tuned tomorrow for my 25 days of Xmas!

Color Club Love 'em Leave 'em!

Today's nails are... Color Club's Love 'em Leave 'em.

I really love this colour! It's subtle but it has a small amount of holo to it! I reckon this would be good for work or for job interviews. Formula was fantastic. This was 2 coats with Sally Hansen Insta-dri top coat.

Enjoy your week everyone! I definitely have Mondayitis and never look forward to going to work on Monday's!

Color Club Foiled Collection. *pic heavy*

I thought i would do some swatches of the Color Club Foiled collection. Not sure if i can get in on the whole just doing swatches, but we will see. Also, just for clarification, i purchased these with my own money.

Silver based Champagne gold (foil, obviously) 2 Coats.

 Cold Metal.
Deep Sapphire Blue foil. Only 1 coat needed.

 Foil me once. 
Silver based light pink foil. 2 Coats.

 Hot Like Lava.
Magenta red/pink foil. 2 Coats.

 Silver based Icy Blue foil. 2 Coats.

 Perfect Mol-ten.
 Light Green foil. 2 Coats.

Overall, i was really surprised by this collection. I'm not a big fan of foils and apart from these i don't even think i have many others in my collection. I really liked all the colours in this collection. My favourites would probably be Antiquated, Cold Metal and Perfect Mol-ten. I umm'd and arhh'd over getting this collection but i'm glad i did. I don't know if i would wear them much on their own but they double as stamping polishes. Below, i have stamped each colour on a piece of paper. Just over the whiteness of the paper and then i used a straight up normal black and actually painted that on the paper. It worked out well i thought. haha. 

So there you have it. My first lot of group swatches from one collection. Please tell me what you all think? I'd love some feedback on how i went! =)

*****Oh, and if there's anyone out there that can get their hands on the Color Club Scent-suous collection and can or is able to  help a few Aussie fellow nail geeks out. I know myself and a few others here in Aussieland would love to get our hands on some! Thanks. *****
Have a nice afternoon!

Ulta3 Spring/Summer Collection: Mojito & silly nail art!

So this is the last colour i have to show in the Ulta3 Spring/Summer collection.

Mojito is a Mint Green cream. I love this colour and i knew i would so i saved it for last! This was 3 coats. It was easy to apply.
Then i did some silly nail art! haha. I was going to stamp it with some "leaves" *cough* Marijuana *cough* because i don't have any plate that had leaves on it that remotely looked like mint. Yes, i actually have an image plate that has hemp on it but i thought that might have been a bit inappropriate to do! haha So for my not so good freehand ability, you can see a cocktail glass. *That'll do Donkey, That'll do!*

Hope you enjoy whats left of your weekend! See you soon!

Ulta3 Spring/Summer Collection: Lemons & Limes!

Seeing as i couldn't log into blogger yesterday, (I thought it was blogger but it was my computer haha!) I have 2 lots of nails to show today. I have, both from the Ulta3 Spring/Summer collection, Tahitian Lime & Frangipani!

Frangipani is a bright yellow cream. For me, this was probably one of the easiest yellows to work with so far. This was 3 coats.

Tahitian Lime is a bright lime green cream. 3 Coats.

When i put these colours on, i instantly thought of Lemons and Limes! So i thought i would do some stamping over the top!
Both stamped with Bundlemonster plate BM04, with Konad stamping polish in Black.

The lemon on my ring finger is stamped with the same BM plate BM04 and China Glaze Happy go Lucky. I didn't like it. It looked out of place because i didn't have a green to do the other hand and it didn't show up very well, so i stamped over it with the black limes to fit in.

Hope you all enjoy your Friday!

Ulta3 Spring/Summer Collection: Blue Marlin!

Today i have Blue Marlin to show you, again, from the Ulta3's Spring/Summer collection.

This is a beautiful deep blue cream, a little jelly-like. Could almost pass as a ford blue that i'm looking for! haha This was only 2 coats, i didn't think it needed a third like most of the others from this collection needed. I then topped it with a fast-dry top coat.

See you tomorrow! xo

Enjoy your weekend!

Ulta3 Spring/Summer Collection: Orchid!

Up second from the Ulta3 Spring/Summer Collection is Orchid.

I really love this colour! Didn't think i would as i'm not a big purple fan! But this, my oh  my!
This is the only shimmer in the whole collection and i got away with ONE coat. I found orchid easier to work with than some of the others i have swatched so far.

Ulta3 Spring/Summer Collection: Sunset Pink

Hi all,
Sorry for the lack of posts, i have been quite ill since Tuesday last week and haven't been up to blogging or doing nails at all for that matter. I'm still not 100% but getting there. Anyway, on to nail stuff!
I now have all 8 colours from Ulta3's Spring/Summer collection. I will be showing/reviewing one at a time, hopefully everyday.

First up, Sunset Pink

This is a bright, almost hot, pink cream! This was 3 coats and there were still some VNL. It applied ok. Not sure if anyone else has noticed but since they are now made in China, they have a different brush. They are now white instead of black and i'm not sure if it's just me or because the bottles are a tad smaller that the brush (or cap) is smaller too and more difficult to use. I have fat hands! haha I find they don't glide as well! Could be just me... but oh well. haha

Hope you enjoy the rest of your day!
