Andrea Fulerton Trio Nail Polish - Rainfall

Hi Everyone!

Yes, It's Friday and I have that Friday flakie feeling! Seriously how wonderful has this weather been?! I'm loving the sunshine!

I have another flakie polish for you today Andrea Fulterton's Trio - Rainfall. Now I know my last review of the trio polishes wasn't so flattering, I had some serious gloopy applications problems going on, but I thought I would give this brand another chance at redeeming itself seeing as I loved the Andrea Fulterton's Mischa so much.

This is 2 coats of the flakie polish contained in the Trio. I only used this polish as I wasn't blown away by the colour of the second polish (the metallic blue), it looks nice enough but nothing special. The 'flakie' polish in this trio is a bright blue/purple/blurple sheer base containing blue/green flakies.

I used 2 coats of the flakies on 2 coats of OPI - Yoga-ta get this blue a gorgeous navy blue polish. I love this combo so much. I couldn't stop staring at my nails, truly mesmerising. My pics don;t do this any  justice. If I was to suggest getting any of these trio polishes, I would suggest getting this one. It's my favourite so far. Using the flakie polish over an OPI polish gave me no problems at all.

I'm going to try using the flakie polish with the other Trio blue metallic polish and see what results I get. I have also included a couple of Andrea Fulterton products in the giveaway I have planned, but that's not til I reach my follower milestone :-)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Another Pound Shop Purchase - H.C.M.J

Hello there!

How has your week been? Mine has been kinda rubbish, but that's how the cookie crumbles I guess sometimes. Less of the negativity...more about polish!

Today I have one of my pound shop purchases, a H.C.M.J no name glitter. Bottles look like an OPI impostor but they had some interesting colours so I thought I'd give them a go. This a a dark red, almost maroon colour glitter suspended in a clear polish base. I started off with two coats of NYC - Battery Park Purple ( a dark purple creme) and used two coats of the H.C.M.J polish over the top.

(In direct sunlight)

In shade


As you can see from the shade pics, there are odd silver bits of glitter in the polish as well. Don't know if that's intentional or not, although it doesn't really bother me much. Drying time was good, although it was a stinker, smelt mostly of chemicals. Still not bad for £1 :-)

Anyone tried this brand?

NOTD - Nails Inc Garrick Street

Hello Everyone

It was such a lovely day here in London today. Can't believe how warm it has been, but It's getting harder to take swatch pics as we are losing the light. I don't have a posh light box, I use my garden :-) I had to use the window sill to get the last bit of today's sunshine. Today I have for you Nails Inc - Garrick Street. A blue/purple/green duochrome. Absolutely stunning and super glossy.

I got this off ebay. So glad I did, it's gorgeous. The formula was good on this too. This is 2 coats. Can you tell I like duochromes just a little bit :-)

My Meh Spectraflair Fraken - A Khaki Holo

Hello Peoples!

Today I have for you another holo franken (hope your not sick of these). Let me tell you I have had so much fun with the spectraflair. It's like being a kid again playing with a chemistry set or being in science class. I'd been dreaming of a Khaki holo for quite some time, so I thought I would try and create one. This is my attempt.

It's not quite there is it? I'm a bit 'meh' over this. In theory this should be great, but it doesn't quite pack the punch I wanted to. It needs to be a deeper green. I'm going to have a search and see what other polishes I can throw in it. China Glaze - Westside Warrior might be an option. So name for this one is 'Mossy Meh'.

Recipe (approx)

10 drops Essie Sew Psyched
10 drops MUA - Shade 23
10 drops Me Me Me - Proud
5 drop Me Me Me - Patient
Rest Clear Polish
3 scoops Spectraflair

What holo franken would you make if you had the chance? I've also had an attempt at making a Pumpkin colour for Halloween. I'll get some swatched up soon to show you.

Thanks for reading!

Mushroom Holo Spectraflair Fraken

Hello Lovely People

I have another spectraflair fraken post, this time my attempt at a brown. I wanted a deep chocolate brown holo, instead I got a mushroom. I'll take that. Please excuse the horrific cuticles :-( Ahhh they disgust me! Why can't I have have pretty fingers?!

I only stopped adding more of the Miss Sporty polish because I had reached the top of the bottle! I like this fraken. So while I'm now in a habit in naming my creations (oooh check me out) I call this creation, Mushy Brown. Original I know. It's quite a nice colour, a hint of purple in there, a nice fit for Autumn. I still want my dark chocolate holo though! Will have to work on that one.

Recipe (approx)
5 drops Nails Inc Jermyn Street
5 drops Rimmel 60 Seconds Torrid
3 drops Beauty UK Golden Chesnut
1/4 bottle Miss Sporty Simply Brown
Rest Clear Polish
3 Scoops Spectraflair

Thank you for reading as always!
