Holy Grail (Old Edition) - A England Polishes

Hey guys!

I know it's been a while since I've had a chance to post here, believe it or not - I hardly do - but classes are finally over!! Now I only have one more paper that's due Wednesday and then FREEDOM!! God, I can't believe a whole semester is done.

And you know what the best part is?! I have all the free time to dedicate to nails now!!

Today's post is very simple, but I recently got my second A-England polish, I had previously bought Saint George and fallen in love with it, so when I say Lucy's Stash review about the two shades of Holy Grail (New & Limited Edition) I just knew I had to get my hand on it!!

Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away 3D - Swatch Post!!

Hey guys, I'm really excited about today's post because my China Glaze - Cirque du Soleil "World's Away 3D" polishes have finally arrived!!!!!! I can't tell you how much I've been waiting for them and when they arrived I may or may not have giggled like a little girl.

Pretty sure I was judged by my mail guy.

But regardless!! Below are the swatches of the 5 polishes I got; It's a Trap-eze, Whirled Away, Running In Circles, Water You Waiting For and Get Carried Away!!

This is my first attempt at swatching things on my nails. Please don't judge me too badly. =P

Candy Cane Stripes + Mistletoe!!

Hey guys, so I know it's been a while since I've last posted, truth is, real life has been really insane lately. It's finals time so I have a billion things to do - which is why playing nails sometimes gets left behind.

BUT! Luckily, tonight I had some spare time, which is good, because I couldn't get this idea out of my head. I had painted my nails red for the day, really simple, and all through the day as I was snacking on Mini Candy Canes, this nifty art design happend.

Water Marbling - Green Edition!!!

So you guys might remember my previous post where I swatched some Beauty UK polishes I got from a friend of mine. Well, this darling friend of mine happens to live in Northern Ireland which so happens to coincide with an obsession of mine...SHAMROCKS!!

Yes, it's true, I am a self-proclaimed "Lil Leprechaun" and have thus gained my status by having my darling Kazzie also proclaim such feat. When a real Irish gal tells ya, it's 'cause it's true!

Behold, the green of the Irish - water marbling style!

Beauty UK - Swatches Post

So, like I mentioned a couple of posts ago, I got a Nail Mail from one of my good friends, and - she knows me SO WELL - of course there was nail-polish in there!! So, this brand is called Beauty UK, I've personally never heard of them before, but they seem to have some really awesome stuff! 

My friend, again, knowing me oh-so-well, sent me 3 beautiful shades of green; Green #47, Sage Green #62 and Jade #76. So I've got some swatches for you guys!

Saint George - A England Polishes

So I've recently decided that it was more than enough time for me to lose my A England Polish virginity. I've been fawning over their colours for a while now and decided that I just had to have them.   You can buy them on-line from their website (linked above) or from any other on-line distributor as well, they're quite common.

I asked my friend Phyllis over at Beauty Base Zero which colour I just had to have, since I couldn't seem to make up my mind by myself. This was the most I've spent on one single bottle of polish yet, so I had to make sure it was worth every penny - and was it!

Knowing my love for the green shades, she recommended Saint George. 

And oh my. It was love at first sight!!

China Glaze - Cirque Du Soleil Worlds Away 3D

Hey Guys!!

So I may be a little late to the party, but I've just recently found out that China Glaze is planning on launching a Cirque du Soleil collection at the end of the month and I CAN'T WAIT!!! I'm originally from Montreal and have grown up watching their shows almost every month! And this month too, here in Vancouver Aqualuna is coming and I already have my tickets ready. I love them!!

Polish Names, from left to right, top to bottom;
- Surreal Appeal - Escaping Reality - Hanging In The Balance - Creative Fantasy 
- Bend Over Backwards - Igniting Love -  It's A Trap-eze - Whirled Away 
- Def Defying - Running In Circles - Water You Waiting For - Get Carried Away

The colours look like they're going to be the most amazing thing ever and I've already decided that I want all of the colours!! ...Sadly of course, I don't think my wallet will highly enjoy that, so according to these swatches I've narrowed it down to the 5 I think I'll end up buying;

  • - Whirled Away
  • - It's a Trap-eze  - the Star Wars side of me loved this pun!)
  • - Running in Circles
  • - Water You Waiting For
  • - Get Carried Away

I'm especially looking forward to Get Carried Away, it looks like it's going to a really awesome shade! Like one of my friends said "Looks a little like galaxy nails but without the effort!".

Have you decided which colours you'll need to buy once they come out??

Inverted French Nail!!

So, I know I was supposed to stick to the whole Hallowe'en thing, but that's really hard when one just got a bunch on new nail mail and I just had to play around with some of the colours! So, this is how this nail art came to be. I'll be honest, I still don't know if I like it or not.
