NOTD: Updated crackle nail polish

It's a black bottle of nail polish. Or is it? It's a crackle nail polish. I have been wanting one for the longest time, so when I saw this one, I went for it.
Please click for closeups of this crapiness. I was soooo disapointed. I don't know what I was expecting, but it was not streaks. It doesn't look 'cracky' but more like lines running down my nails. This was taken indoors with flash to show the 'effect' or lack there of.

Boooooooo... I think this is going into the swap pile. >,< Maybe it works better in non-tropical climates... It does dry SUPER fast so watch out for that.

And I was home this arvo, so I decided to bully my black dog, Floppy.

Yeah! I think he's rocking the pink!

PS I gave him a doggy treat to make up for the humiliation.

Wow! This is a giveaway!

As I am preparing for my giveaway, I stumble upon the motherlode.

Babbling Brooke is celebrating her 2nd... blog birthday! So she is giving away some awesome awesome polishes. 42 of them to be exact. Isn't the picture drool worthy?

Go enter!

NOTD: OPI Jade is the new black, Rumple Wiggin', Funky Dunkey and TINS (Love) Warning: Feet Pictures

Hellos all! I'm back and will be posting again. I was sick and my job was super crazy. More work, same pay. But I do enjoy what I'm doing most days. I also had to deal with the "all by myself" syndrome. I was swimming in self pity for a while but I'm over it now. We all get like that some times I guess. ^^

Anyway first picture above is OPI Jade is the New Black and some glittery TINS polish. I think it's called Holiday Cheer but don't quote me on that one. I had it done in the shop. I LOVE TINS! It went on smooth. This manicure is about 4 days old so there is tip wear. Taken indoors with flash.
This is 5 days old. Outdoors no flash in sunlight.

And I got my tootises done. So WARNING! FEET PICTURES AHEAD!

The OPI Sherk collection! Dark purple is OPI Funky Dunkey. And the light purple is OPI Rumplin' Wiggin. I didn't catch the movie. I wanted to but by the time I could, it was out of cinemas. Booooooo!

And yes, I brought something naughty.

Guess what?
It's acrylic colours! Yeah! So I'm looking for suckers, I mean volunteers, for me to practice on. I think my Hongie would be a good one. *muah ha ha ha ha ha ha*

And yes, I did notice, I have 78 followers!

I'm putting together a giveaway. I shall let you guys know in just a few days. It's gonna be a pretty one!

Sorry for the lack of posts.

I have been running a fever and stomach flu for the last 4 days.

Hopefully, I will feel better soon and start posting again.

Have a good one all! ^^

NOTD: Voxy Glitter Purple

This polish has the prettiest name. It's called Dancing Fairies. This was taken indoors without flash. And yes, that is my bedroom wall.
Indoors with flash.
Outdoors in natural light.
Voxy has fantastic glitter nail polishes! I love how dense it it. This is just one coat of Voxy! Loads of different sized glitter and it dries really fast. Where is Voxy from? *hmmm*

And why do I have glitter on? I'm going out for a manicure soon.

My friend gave me a voucher for Christmas and it expires today!

So I need to use it. I wonder what colour I'm going for today...

Wow! 69 eh?

Thanks guys! I can't believe I have 69 followers!

I think I'm going to have another giveaway soon

My 2 past winners, Glitterkitty and Heather, are ummm different?

Glitterkitty got her package! (Yeah!) And I'm glad she enjoyed the polish.

I have no idea if Heather got hers. Did ya? Please let me know. I haven't heard anything from ya.

I think I know why people put a lot more rules than I do. >,<

Oh well, you live you learn.

I shall have another giveaway once I hit 78 followers.

78? Why?

Cos I'm greedy, that's why. ^^

NOTD: Unnamed Cheap But Pretty Polish which I then screwed up

This is a nameless cheap $1 bottle of  polish. These shots were taken indoors with flash. Click to enlarge to look at the green, red and blue mirco-glitter suspended in the warm brown.
The bottle indoors.
The bottle outdoors in full sunlight.
Look at the pretty colours! Sorry for the pre-clean up pictures.
Then, I fuged it up. I thought gold would be lovely with brown.

NG. *beep beep* Wrong answer.
This is a dense gold glitter. I piled on a coat and above, was the result.

Pretty ugly huh? Sometimes, too much is way too much if you get my drift.

What inspires you?

What makes you decide what colour you wear for today?

What designs do you come up with and how?

I look around me for designs, and I find my home and plants are usually the biggest sources of inspiration.

Beautiful hibiscus in my garden. Imagine this as a reverse manicure. *drools*
Or this on your toes. Orange and yellow, beach colours!

A happy tree. Name unknown. Green nails with orange flowers on the tips.
The kitchen table. And yes, that is a tv in the kitchen. It's a 42 inch LCD. I would love golden brown nails with rainbow sprinkles. Silver cake tins? Shiny mirror nails ala Chanel.

And the Goddess of the kitchen. The orange Kitchen-Aid. The source of all joy in baking.

Now see orange and silver on your nails in lines. With some silver circles. Tacky? Maybe, you never know until you try.

SO ladies, here's a question: What makes you do your nails the way you do? ^^
