A Nail Polish Mess

Random thought of the day:

I definitely need to clean my nail polish stash, destash and organize... Do people still do blog sales? Is that still a thing?? Geez It's been over a year since I mailed out polish... But alas, I've been away from the bottles so long that I can't remember where they all go and I can't find a bunch of the ones I need for my jewellery! I had a mini panic attack when I couldn't find my Ozotic multichromes. I ended up finding them in the back of a drawer but I still think I'm missing a few!! Oh the woes of a previous polish addict...

Anybody want to take some nail polish off my hands? or come help me organize? Please? lol

In lieu of a nail post, I'll leave you with a cute dog picture!

To Polish or Not Jewellery

Hello! Is anyone still out there listening?

Sorry I've been so MIA. I've just been very busy with school and not being able to paint my nails while on practicum. I've decided to channel my polish addiction back into jewellery making and have revived my jewellery line. Enjoy!

For now I leave you with this amazing set my friend Anisha did! I can't wait till the minion movie comes out!

NOPI ~ Be Awesome - Some awesome glitter placement looks bloggers have done!

The other day I was in Shoppers Drug Mart and stumbled upon this interesting NOPI glitter. Its called

Nicole by OPI ~ Be Awesome

This polish really is awesome. It has multicoloured diamond glitters in a clear base. I would have taken it home if it wasn't for the $10.99 price point.

Anyways, since I don't have a swatch to show you guys, I figured I'd highlight some amazing glitter placement designs that other bloggers have done using NOPI ~ Be Awesome. I've never done glitter placement myself, I don't think I have the patience!

These looks are all incredible! Click on the pictures to go check out their blogs and posts.

NOPI ~ On What Grounds?

Hello Everyone!

Today on the way home I stopped by Shoppers and found these interesting Limited Edition NOPI "Roughles" polishes. There were 4 spring textured colours. I decided to grab the teal: 

"NOPI ~ On What Grounds?"

I would have grabbed all 4 (yellow, pink, purple, teal) but they were $10.99 a pop =(

On What Grounds is a teal texture "Roughles"?? polish with darker teal and grey specks. It looks both bright and pastel depending on the lighting. 

The instructions tell you not to use a top coat. This is to allow the textured effect to show!

The finish starts of pretty rough, but as it wears it gets smoother. I would recommend not wearing delicate snagable fabrics while wearing these polishes.

So what do you think of it? I'm on the fence. I love the colour and I think it's definitely better than plain creme textured polishes, but I'm not sure if I'm sold. I asked my mom what she thought of it and she said it looks like concrete =( I think it somewhat resembles candy speckled eggs! 

I wore 2 coats of "On What Grounds" without a base coat and a week later it still looks perfect! It's just a bit sanded down and smoother now, but there were no chips and only slight tip wear which is expected.

I think I'd like to try a few of the other colours from this collection, if only they were cheaper! Well hopefully they go on sale lol...

Do you like this polish??

Can anyone tell me what "Roughles" means???
I get that it's a play on words of "rough" but "ruffles" still doesn't make sense to me for this polish... lol oh well

edit** I found a full display the other day so I snapped a pic. Here you can see the other colours =)

Nabi 3D ~ Navy Blue

Nabi Holograms might not be new or recent, but they are still gorgeous!! A cheap alternative to pricey holographic nail polishes, I got a bunch of Nabis last summer for around $2 a pop! Here is:

Nabi 3D-Rainbow Effect in Navy Blue

I find this colour in particular is more of a scattered holographic. The linear qualities don't show up as well in the dark colour. 
I love how bold the colour is though! A contrast to the bright colours of summer. I can't wait until summer...

Anyone else looking forward to summer???

Nails Inc. ~ Hammersmith

Today I have a gem to share with you. I got this polish on sale at Sephora for $7! It's nails inc. Hammersmith from the nails inc. Special Effects 3D Glitter collection. 

I love nails inc. polishes, but they tend to be quite pricey. Regular price for them here is about $11.50 for only 10ml. As a comparison, OPI is about $9 for 15ml, at salons. 

Anyyywayys, Hammersmith is a gorgeous combination of multisized teal and silver glitter. It's so sparkly that it's blinding in the light. I was very impressed with the polish. I already have Marylebone, the pink from this collection, which I used here. I also bought Maida Vale which I will show you in an upcoming post. 

So basically, if you love glitter and don't have this polish already, go and grab it before it's gone!

Color Club Halo Hues ~ Cherubic

This is another gorgeous holographic polish from Color Club. This one is a neutral light peach colour. Cherubic is great for when you want a subtle look but still a pop of holographic rainbow. 

I love the polishes in the Halo Hues collection because they have a very strong holographic effect. They also dry quickly and only 2 coats were necessary for full opacity. They also have a glossier finish than polishes like Nfu Oh and Make Up Store, although not as glossy as the OPI DSs. Overall I love them! 

PS - As always you can click on photos to enlarge them! Here's a close up of Color Club Cherubic! I took it with my new phone courtesy of my bf. What a wonderful Christmas gift! 
Look at this close up!!
 Blurry so you can see the holo!!

I think I need to get my hands on the 2nd set of Color Club holographics!!
