Sexy in the City

The next to be tried from my recent China Glaze Haul is Sexy in the City. Can I just say, I'm in love (with this colour)! It is divine. You may have deduced I have a thing for Blue/Turquoise/Purple :p

Turned Up Turquoise

This is my first China Glaze swatching! I was pretty excited when I found out that there was a Sally's in the UK, and I could buy from them so easily as there's a store not far from me - yay! You can also buy online, but I do like being able to select my colours in person :) I purchased Turned Up Turquoise, Sexy in the City and Skyscraper. I also got a top coat free with the purchase of two polishes, so I chose the No Chip Top Coat. I was so excited I didn't know which to swatch first! So by random selection, here we have Turned Up Turquoise:

Fulham Palace Road

This is just a fleeting post about Nails Inc Fulham Palace Road. I didn't actually realise I owned this colour until I went through my collection (again). Aha! A quick Google search has shown that it was part of the Limited Edition Cashmere Collection, which I never actually bought! So this belongs to my sister :p

Dream of Dreamers Island

This is my first Nubar nail polish, so exciting stuff! I had heard of Nubar, but didn't know where to find it in the UK (I'm not an ebayer I have to admit). After a few online searches, I decided to try Beauty Bay, and then spent hours finalising my first order (including Orly's Rococo-A-Go-Go and Rock The World). In the end I settled on Dreamers Island.

A Barry M Navy Night with Orly Snowflakes

It's snowing outside, so when better to share a little bit of seasonal nail art? In these short days, to me this colour is an almost-perfect representation of the winter night sky.

A Purple Gradient

This is a quick post to show off my niece's Christmas present to me :) I initially set out to simply paint my nails with the Barry M Limited Edition Lilac Foil. This is a wonderful colour, with a frosty finish.

I Can Rock The World!

That may be a slight exaggeration. I obviously cannot rock the world. In fact, since my regular guitar playing days when I was ten, I've only picked up a guitar a handful of times. It's wearing Orly Rock The World, that makes me feel I can.
