Miss Sporty Clubbing Colours Blueberry

Hi there,

Today I'm bringing you Miss Sporty's Blueberry. Last week I did a layering combo mani, and layered OPI's DS Original over this. But Blueberry deserves a post of it own. Blueberry is a gorgeous Indigo polish and applies perfectly.

The first coat was a bit blotchy, however I don't mind this, as I'm not accustomed to one coat polishes yet.

Miss Sporty Blueberry: 2 coats

I've been really lazy recently, and haven't been using a top coat, but luckily this polish dried super shiny.

Hope you all enjoy and see you guys soon.

Franken Polish: Blue's There?

Hi there,

Today I'm bringing you my franken polish- Blue's There? Blue's There? is a bright blue holo polish. Couldn't find the bottle, so grabbed my Nail Tek Intensive Therapy II for the pictures.

Blue's There? : 2 coats

My camera disappointed me, and did not show the holo effect. IRL it's actually more holo.

I hope you all enjoy and see you again soon.

W7 Metallic Jupiter

Hi there,

Today I'm bringing you W7's Metallic Jupiter. Metallic Jupiter is a sheer purple, leaning black, polish with a blue duo chrome. It looks better in the bottle than my nails and unfortunately, I really do  not like this polish.

W7 Metallic Jupiter: 2 coats 

Unlike Metallic Neptune, which is from the same collection, it's quiet sheer, and I got a few bald spots. BOO! This didn't stay on my nails long- say a day. 

I hope you all enjoy and hopefully see you guys soon.

BK Diamond Duet no 6 and stamping

Hi there,

Today I'm bring you another holo polish from BK. This is BK no 6, which is a super holo pink. Thought I'd subtle out the holo-ness and stamped and image from Bundle Monster BM 206. Really impressed with the BK holo polishes. Super holo gorgeousness. 

BK Diamond Duet no 20: 2 coats
Stamping Plate: BM 206
Stamping Polish: W7 Black
Top Coat: Miss Sporty Glossy Tech

Got so many compliments and when the sun hit my nails, boy did the sunglasses come out. LOL. This chipped however after a day, but don't know whether it's the top coat or the polish itself. But I did not have this problem when using my HG top coat, Seche Vite, with BK 20. 

Hope you all enjoy and see you guys soon.

Miss Sporty Clubbing Colours Blueberry & OPI DS Original layering Combo

Hi there,

Today I'm bringing you a layering combo, as I'm still pining for OPI's DS Glamour. Why is it soooo hard to get hold of? Still can't justify paying £35+ for a nail polish, so still trying to control myself from pressing the 'purchase now' tab on eBay. 

So for this mani I used Miss Sporty's Clubbing Colours Blueberry and layered one coat of OPI DS Original.

Base Colour: Miss Sporty Clubbing Colours Blueberry: 2 coats
OPI DS Original: 1 coat

Still not quite there yet, but still love this combo.

I hope you all enjoy and see you again soon.

W7 Metallic Neptune & Holo Bomb

Hi there,

Today I'm bringing you guys yet another combo with my franken, Holo Bomb. I've been trying to get the perfect green/dark blue holo, so it could keep my addiction to buy Glitter Gal's Lizard Belly at bay.

I know it's nowhere close, but love this combo, and don't feel the need to buy Lizard Belly- for now. W7's Metallic Neptune is a purple & teal duochrome polish, which required 1 coat!

W7 Metallic Neptune: 1 coat
Holo Bomb: 1 thin coat
Miss Sporty Glossy Tech Top Coat

Love how this shifted to purple then back to teal depending on the lighting, I sure didn't get bored looking at my mani in different lighting. It's actually more teal in real life. 

Check how my franken has discoloured. Freaking BB's I got were supposed to be no rust, but check how my franken has gone a browny coppery colour. EWWWW....

I hope you all enjoy and see you again soon.

Valentines Mani 2

Hi there,

Today I'm bringing you the second Valentines mani. I used MUA's no 20 as a base- a gorgeous hot pink, then stamped some hearts with Konad Special Polish white and Miss Sporty's Planet Pink. 

Collection 2000 no 20: 2 coats
Stamping Plate: BM 202
Stamping Polish: Miss Sporty Planet Pink & Konad Special Polish White

Check out the dodgy stamping on my pinky and ring finger. I used the small end of Konad's stamper, and thats what happened. Turned it over and used the big end on the index and middle finger and it turned out ok. So maybe I have a dodgy stamper? Let the experimenting begin. LOL

I don't know which mani to choose now. 

Hope you all enjoy and see you guys soon.

Stamping Polish: Konad Special Polish White

Loving the Big Hair, especially the name. LOL. 

I hope you all enjoy and see you again soon.

Help Wanted: Which MPJ Do I have?

Hi there,

Just a quick post today, wanted to know if anyone knew which version of OPI's My Private Jet I have? I know there are around 4 versions out there.

OPI: My Private Jet: 2 coats

This was actually opaque in 1 coat, however I added 2 just out of habit. No top coat was added. In normal lighting my MPJ looked nothing to write home about, just a dark brown with flakes, that don't even shine or shimmer.

Would appreciate if someone could tell me which version I have.

Hope you guys enjoy and see you again soon.

Justification... Purple holo's

Hi there,

Today I'm bringing you a few polishes. I wanted to justify my stash of purple holo's. Justisfy to myself, that is. LOL. I noticed when I was doing my my holographic collection that I had a load of purples. 

Index: Color Club: Wild at Heart: 1 coat
Middle: NuBar: Treasure: 3 coats
Ring: Milani:Hi Res: 2 coats
Pinkie: OPI: DS Original: 3 coats
All were without top coat.

I think they're all very different. But I've got to admit, I could do with Nubar Treasure, as it not as holo as the rest, and it's quite similar in shade-but not as holo as DS Original. My favourite has to be Color Club's- Wild at Heart, then Milani's Hi Res, the OPI's  DS Original. The only reason DS Original was my least favourite is because it took 3 coats to look half decent! Maybe I'll try next time, I'll layer it with a purple base color, as this polish has an AMAZING holo! This was THE polish to get me into holo's in the first place, now I'm addicted! Reading my past posts, you'll think I had a vendetta with OPI, but I don't, honest. I have a few OPI's in my collection, and love each for it's amazing colours, but the wear of the polish can be a bit of a bum sometimes- unless I'm doing something wrong? 

I did not include Catherine Arley 673 and China Glaze's LOL, as they're quite dark, so may do a post comparing it to Wild at Heart soon. 

I hope you guys enjoy and see you again soon.
