Friends on Friday - Owls

Hello lovelies!

I did one of my friends nails again, this time inspired by a wrapping paper in which had been a present she had gotten me recently:

I don't remember all the polishes I used, there were a lot. I just sort of freehanded everything.

That was fun! I'm holding on to the wrapping paper, because I want to do my own nails like this too, lol!

Ms Sparkle Playtime Collection - Akira

Hello lovelies!
As promised, I present you "Akira", the second polish in this collection that Simone named after me <3 Click here to see "Lothwen" Akira is amazeballs, check it out:

"Akira" is a glitter topper with black and platinum leopard spots, yellow stars, neon green blacklight reactive hexes, purple micro glitter and big holo circles... It's an 80's party in a bottle and it's one of the most fun toppers I own, if not THE most fun!

I applied two coats of Akira over a white to purple gradient base. The black leopards did not require much fishing, the platinum ones however did, so weird! But that's a minor detail with a deliciously awesome payoff like this ;)
Ms. Sparkle "Lothwen" is part of the new "Playtime" collection and will be in the shop tonight!

What do you think of this polish and the leopard spot glitter in general? Do you like it better in a topper or in a crelly like "Lothwen"?

Ms. Sparkle Playtime Collection - Lothwen

Hello lovelies!

I'm over the moon with today's post; the wonderful Simone from Ms. Sparkle named two nail polishes after me! She wanted to thank me for helping her ^_^ I'm so honoured! I mean, you know something must be a big deal, for it to have nail polish named after it... and now I, ME! has nail polish named after ME! Wow...

So of course, I get to do the swatching honours, so today I present you... Lothwen!

"Lothwen" is a gorgeous white crelly with pink dots, purple shreds, black micro glitter and black LEOPARD SPOTS! Yes, that's right! It's all the rage in indie land and I got it! Whooooooooo!

This is three coats of "Lothwen". It applies nicely and no fishing is needed for the big leopard spots, although they do require some placing, which is normal. A smoothing top coat also comes in handy, so I used 1 coat of gel look top coat (Essence) and 1 coat of SV.

I love it, I love it, I love it! Thank you so much, Simone! It's the sweetest thing ever <3

Ms. Sparkle "Lothwen" is part of the new "Playtime" collection and will be in the shop tonight!

What do you think of this polish and the leopard spot glitter in general? Go here to see "Akira", the second polish in this collection and a different take on the Leopard Spot Glitter mania!

Catrice Plum Fiction

Hello lovelies!

Today another pretty from Catrice, Plum Fiction, from their Luxury Lacquers line. This is a glitter bomb that is opaque in two coats.

It is jam packed with two sizes of purple glitters and some copperish orange-ish glitter, that is especially visible in more dimmed light, like here:

Application was very difficult, because of the high glitter density. It needed a lot of top coat and unfortunately the top coat bubbled. That was such a shame... But the polish is very pretty and eye-catching and does give a luxurious feel!

What do you think?
