Hello lovelies,

Hope you're all well and not too depressed that it's only Tuesday ;) I've prepared just a simple swatch post for today but I like the pictures very much so I hope you will too. Plus I need to start feature more polishes that I didn't get for review and are laying here and waiting for me to get to them. Some poor little beauties have been waiting more than two years to be swatched and I just don't have the time...it makes me really sad :(

CND Lilac Longing is a lavender creme shade that has very good formula. I didn't have any problems whatsoever with application and I also enjoyed the high pigmentation. I've applied two thin coats which dried quite fast. I still applied topcoat to finish it off.

The brush is thicker than China Glaze brush but not as thick as OPI. It was easy to work with so no complaints there either.

I was very pleased with this polish and I also got a feedback from a friend who is using CND Cream Puff (white creme) for stamping and she said it works great.

 

It is not quite easy to get your mitts on CND polishes, I've found few sources for you. You can purchase them in some of your local salons, search for them at www.lovecnd.com (UK). If you're a nail tech you can purchased from Sweet Squared (UK).

 

Another resources I found are Nail Polish Direct (UK), Nail Republic (UK)  Nail Polish Canada (CAN), Nail Supplies (US).

 

Have a lovely day!

Hello lovelies,

 

It's Movember again! I can't remember if I've done a moustache manicure last year but this year I'm prepared :) I love seeing all the funky moustache manicures all around the blogosphere so I wanted to add my bit. I've done just a classic black moustache accent nail in a 'skittlette' manicure.

For this manicure I have used CND VINYLUX Lilac Longing, Nubar White Polka Dot and OPI Alpine Snow.

 

For the moustache I have used black acrylic paint and nail art brush from the set below*. This set of brushes is from Tmart.com and it has proved to be good for intricate nail art designs. I have been using them for a while now and they are great value for money. You get four brushes for £2.56 (approx. $3.94) and the shipping is free.

 

I am using one brush in its original condition and one that I have cut few bristles off to make it even thinner.

I hope you liked my simplistic moustache skittlette manicure and see you soon ;)

 

Have a lovely day everyone! xoxo
