Hidden Shimmer Pt3...Accessorize - Nevada

Hello Everyone,

Enjoying the Olympics? The opening ceremony I must admit surpassed my expectations. Thought it was rather spectacular. Living in London I was a bit underwhelmed with the whole thing, however now it's here I'm quite looking forward to the events. Today I have the third polish which I picked up from Accessorize - Nevada. You can see the other swatches of Utah here and Colorado here.

Natural Light



This is two coats of Nevada. A terracotta orange with copper shimmer. This was the one I was most looking forward to, although I think Colorado pipped this to the post. Still a lovely colour and unusual in comparison to the available shades from other brands here in the UK. Accessorize have done wonderfully with these I think. 

Available from Superdrugs and Accessorize.

What do you think? Which is your favourite?

Makeup Store - Kaja

Hi ya all, 

Today I have another holo to show you. While its sunny I might as well take advantage of it you never know when it will be out next here! I picked this up on my trip to Carnaby Street a couple of weeks back. I don't normal splurge on high end polishes but I couldn't resist. This is Makeup Store's - Kaja. I also picked up a teal holo Charmaine.

This is two coats of Kaja. A cornflower blue with a subtle holo shimmer. Like the colour of this one, although the holo doesn't appear strong. Formula was okay bit thicker than I was expecting, nothing like the other holos which Makeup Store has such as Madeleine. Overall this is a bit of a disappointment for £11. I don't know if other brands have spoiled me such as Glitter Gal with polishes such as Lizard Belly and the Jades which I've shown this week. Maybe I'm beginning to develop polish rot where I'm not appreciating polishes through over exposure. Dunno?

What do you think? Would you pay £11 for Kaja

Jade Holographic - Magia Negra + Giveaway Reminder!

Hello Everyone!

Firstly last chance to enter my giveaway which will close in 10hours click the picture on the side bar to enter. I'm Right, that's out of the way now holo business. I have the second Jade holographic polish to show you all, this one is Magia Negra a fabulously amazing blinging black holo.

This is two coats of Magia Negra, a black linear holo. Isn't this stunning? Coverage was really good on this one, thinner than Vermelho Surreal. I think the holo affect is more prominent too, its so sparkly.

I know a few of you are waiting to see the Barry M Chameleons so I'll hopefully get to play with them this weekend and get some swatches up.

Speak soon

Jade Holographic - Vermelho Surreal

Hello Everyone!

Finally my usb lead arrived for my camera although I've treated myself and ordered a new Nikon for passing my degree. Its only a compact digital one, but I'm looking forward to getting a new camera as mine has seen better days. I also treated myself to a couple of the new Jade holographic polishes as they looked so pretty. I got two, this one is called Vermelho Surreal.


This is 2 coats of Vermelho Surreal. A red linear holographic polish. Apparently a Brazilian brand (they do some cool polish over there). Its advertised as a 'true' red polish, although I would disagree and say it leans slightly on a copper tone. The formula was quite jelly like for a holo but had good coverage.

I got mine on Llarowe for $10.00 each. Bottles are not massive but this polish looks amazing in the sunshine. Also don't forget, last two days to enter my giveaway!!

What do you think?

Catrice - Heavy Metallilac

Hello All,

How you all keeping? got a few camera problems at the moment, my usb lead is broke :-( so awaiting another one in the post. I have a few swatches to put up but they will have to wait. Today I have a polish which featured heavily on the blog network Catrice - Heavy Metalilac. The only Catrice I own.


This is two coats of Heavy Metallilac. It a purple metallic which contains a glowing shimmer. My pictures do not do it any justice. Probably one of the most blinging purples I own. Formula was really thick but for a shade like this I don't mind. Excuse the cuticles in the shots I was swatching glitter before and it was a bugger to remove. Luckily I got this in a swap. 

So hopefully new posts up and running soon as I get the new usb cable. What a pain.

Miss Sporty - 313

Hello Folks

A purple post today, I picked this one up a while back. This is Miss Sporty - 313. Miss Sporty polishes don't really get that much attention however I think they are an absolute bargain.

Natural Light


This is two coats of 313, could of done with a third as I have a little balding on my pinky. Formula was on the thin side. The shade however is deep and shiny. The bottle looks amazing with shimmer all twirled inside. Cost £1.99 either from Superdrugs or Miss Sporty online.
