12 Days of Christmas: Santa and Elves

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the 12 Days of Christmas Challenge is Santa and/or Elves. A while ago a friend sent me a picture of a Santa hat nail so I decided to go with Santa and elf hats and coats. Painted Fingertips | Santa and elf hats and coats (more…)

Hi everyone!

I’m a little later with today’s post, but it’s still the 16th! Today’s theme is geometric nails. I decided to go with an old favourite of mine, a combination of tape and texture. Painted Fingertips | Tape and texture for geometric nails - day 16 of the #31DC2014 (more…)

The Neverending Pile Challenge: Dupes!

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the Neverending Pile Challenge is Dupes – match an untried polish with a tried polish. Usually when I am buying polish I will try to avoid any duplicates – I’d rather spend my money on something I don’t already have – but in this case I had one I could use for this theme. A few months ago I took part in a polish swap and one of the polishes I was gifted was this silver texture:swatch-cliche-glamour-rainha-silver-texture-nail-polish


Swatches: Rimmel Space Dust Collection

Hi everyone!

Today I have swatches of all 5 polishes from Rimmel’s Space Dust collection. I know for you US/UK ladies this collection is old news, and probably already disappearing from your shelves, but it is a new arrival here in South Africa. I was so excited to see it since I’d loved all the swatches I saw that I bought all 5 the second I saw them. When I got home I wondered if I really needed them all, but I am glad I did get them all because the couple I might have skipped, I ended up loving!

First up, I’ll address the formula of these. I found that they all had a great formula which dried really quickly. They were a tad on the thicker side but applied really smoothly and it actually made them easier to control. I used 2 coats for all the swatches below. rimmel-space-dust-aurora-swatch-nails (more…)
