Dannii, you're delightful

Hi everyone~! I have the most delightful polish to show today :) Dannii is from Zoya's Initimate collection which was released earlier this year as part of the spring collection. This shade of purple is more cool toned and not normally one I prefer - I like my dark and vampy purples, I do :P However, the beautiful silver flecks really drew me in and I gave in to purchasing this.

Dannii definitely doesn't disappoint (how's that for alliteration? :P)! I love the lightness of the purple with the cool shade, what a perfect combo :D
What do you think of this polish - hot or not? :)

Neon, to fight the gloom

Hi everyone~ :) All last week was filled with rain, rain and more rain over here so I thought I'd fight the gloominess with a bright neon manicure :P.

I used two coats of Sportsgirl Citrus and as with all neons it was sheer, so I started off with one coat of Ulta3 lily white before layering Citrus over it. I applied a coat of OPI Black shatter to soften the brightness a bit ^^

Apologies for the lobster fingers but this was the only photo which showed the true shade of the polish. Personally I'm a bit too afraid of drawing attention to neon shades on my tips so I think shatter/crackle polishes are awesome for layering over them :). What do you think?

Rose water decals

Hello~ :) Woohoo, I've finally finished exams and am ready to party haha ♥ I wore this mani into my exam and was constantly distracted by it...good thing it was an easy exam :P The full nail water decals are from Viva la nails and part of the blogger sample pack I received awhile ago.

I spent waaay too much time trying to get the water decals to work though, they just refused to dry and stick onto my nails! :( And on top of that, I ruined my pinky one and had to make do with left over decals. Because of the oopsies I made, I used some rhinestones and bullion beads I received from Born Pretty Store - a nail art etailer - to cover them up. I loove the rhinestones, they're so easy to use :)

And a picture of the rhinestone wheel. My favourite has got to be the beautiful light blue under the purple rhinestones on the left. It seriously flashes so many colours ♥

A pink manicure

Hello~ :) As most of you know, I'm not a fan of pink or reds on my nails. So I really don't know why I decided to pick out a rare pink nail polish in my stash for this mani :P. I applied two coats of Ulta3 natural spring which is a sheer, pastel pink polish. I then layered two coats of OPI Teenage dream over it, giving it some bling with the beautiful holographic glitter. I had to adjust the photo a bit because the polish came out too light, hence the slightly redder fingers!


What do you think of it this mani? I wore this for one and half days before I took it off. For some reason, I just don't like how pink looks on my nails. Anywhere else is fine, just not for a mani :P
