Swatch: Out of This World

Painted Fingertips | Swatch: Sinful Colors Out of This World

Hi everyone!

I took a look through my nail folder the other day and found a whole bunch of swatches I had never posted. I did these a while ago, before I improved my lighting setup, so I keep avoiding posting them as I have better-lit pictures so share with you. These are still great polishes though, and I don’t want the pictures to just lie around gathering dust! I also have a lot of things going on in my life right now so it’s the perfect time to pull some pictures out of the vault. I’ll try show them all to you over the next few weeks! (more…)

A while ago Tip Top came out with a collection of indie-like glitter-filled polishes. They were unique and beautiful and I was very disappointed that I wasn’t able to get any. Enter Siobhan from For the Love of Nail Art who sent be an amazing package including the best polish from the collection! This polish went STRAIGHT onto my nails so I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to show it to you. (more…)

Swatches: LA Girl 3D Holographic

Painted Fingertips | Swatch: LA Girl 3D Effects Brilliant Blue

Hi everyone!

I am really excited to share these polishes with you. I have wanted them for a long time and I was finally lucky enough to get 3 of the shades as a late Christmas gift from my niece. When I first started getting into nail polish about 2 years ago, I started following a lot of nail blogs. At this time the boom of textured polishes was just beginning and I was fascinated by the pictures I saw – I had never seen a textured polish before. I was desperate to get my hands on one but just couldn’t seem to find any in-store – either we didn’t have the brands here, or only core lines or older polishes were stocked. One day I saw the LA Girl 3D Holographic polishes and thought because they said ‘3D’ that I might have found some textures. Once I saw they weren’t textures I was disappointed and put them back – I was on a mission and missed these beauties. Before long I regretted it because by the time I went back, they were sold out! I was excited when they were brought back recently but I couldn’t buy them myself – luckily my family listened to my strong hinting and I got the 3 I wanted most! (more…)

Hi everyone!

Today I have some Sinful Colors polishes to share with you. Before we start though, I wanted to show you the new Stash page I have created.

Just click the ‘My Stash’ link at the top of the page, right under the header picture and you’ll come to a list of all the polishes I own. I have linked to swatches where I could.
