Showing posts with label glitter

Hi everybody!

Hope you're all enjoying the weekend..I AM! Not only we will have two days extra off work because of the Queen's diamond jubilee but I found 15(!) Barielle polishes in the shop for a bargain price! Great day :)

Today's post is all about Models Own Hed Kandi polishes, especially Ibiza Mix. Ibiza Mix is a colourful glitter with differently sized hexagons in a clear base. There's a lot of glitter in the bottle so it applied nicely and I didn't have to 'fish out' additional glitter out of the bottle. I've applied the Ibiza Mix over Balearic Cool from the same collection.

Hello lovelies!
Today is the next day of a Summer Challenge and the topic is Chelsea Flower Show! Up until now I haven't heard of this show but apparently it's a big deal in the 'flower business' :) 
I didn't have much time to do a special manicure with nail art even though I'd love to do a flower mani. So For the Chelsea Flower Show theme I've chosen swatches of Peggy Sage Tulip Glitter. Just the name is flowery and look at the colourful glitter in a jelly base! Awesome!
Tulip Glitter- dark wine red jelly with different coloured and sized glitter. This is such a beautiful polish! I love the jelly shade and the different glitter in it. Just imagine the glitter represents flowers - you can see red, green, blue, white and pink! 
I've applied two coats and as you can see they were opaque enough. It applied ok but the jelly formula played up a bit. The polish dried very fast so I've experienced little bit of patching and also polish was 'glooping' around the bottle neck so I might need to use thinner later. No topcoat.

These are the girls participating in the Summer challenge, Check out their blogs and see their interpretation of the 'Chelsea Flower Show' theme:
