Leopard print

Ok it's been ages but I was home sick from work today and decided to have a go at free hand leopard print and I think it turned out ok.

Base is China Glaze For Audrey, spots are Art Club Satin Silver and Black. Next time I'll have a go at doing all my nails.

Nubar 2010

I finally got my hands on a bottle of this little beauty from eBay.

It arrived last night and I am in love already!

Nubar 2010 over OPI Dim Sum Plum.

Ulta3 Waterlily with OPI Mad as a Hatter tips.

I had my nails painted in waterlily the other day and when they had a little tip wear I decided to fix it up with a little mad as a hatter.

I think they look pretty fun. The contrast was a bit more noticeable in real life.

My Stash

I took a couple of photos of my nail polish stash today. I store them all in a Billy bookcase from Ikea.

The whole bookcase.

The top shelf- OPI and China Glaze.

1st shelf- Zoya.

2nd Shelf- Ulta3, Nubar, Rimmel, Essie, Revlon etc...

3rd Shelf- Nail art, foils, Remover, Top Coats, Base Coats and Treatments.

Bottom shelf- Colour Pops, Nail Wheels, Mani and Pedi implements- Files, Cuticle sticks, Nail Cutters, Toe Seperators etc...

It doesn't look like it but there is over 130 polishes there, plus my sister has borrowed a couple and a few are at my mums...

Short Nails

So I decided to cut them all back and start again... I might post some NOTD pics from the last few weeks but my nails were all different lengths and not looking great!

This colour is Ulta3 bouquet with a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust. I love glitters and Fairy Dust adds a little fun to plain colours when I can't be bothered attempting nail art.

So i have had another casualty, my 3rd broken nail in 2 weeks (hence the absence from my blog).

I'm not sure what to do... Do I cut them all back? Or would a nail tech do just a couple of tips for me and I can take them off when they grow out? Or will this look funny? Or do I just leave them ad they are and hope my broken ones grow fast?

See below for the current state of my nails...

Essie Resort- Lapis of Luxury

I ordered the Essie Resort Mini's and they arrived at the start of this week, and I have to say I think I have found my favourite blue!

Lapis of Luxury is a beautiful creme sky blue. I have had it on since I received them which is not like me at all, I normally change my polish every day.

It wears very well and I've had no chips or tip wear. I'm wearing 3 coats of Lapis of Luxury over Seche Clear Base Coat with a coat of Seche Vite on top.

The following pic is off my iPhone because we are having terrible weather in Melbourne at the moment so it's hard to get a good pic.
