Chinese Nail Polishes

I found these cool polishes at Lottemart which is kinda like Walmart but the street level floor is separate little shops and one was Lenle. Lenle is a lot like Claire’s with hair accessories, jewellery, nail polish and other beauty items including face masks. I got some great colours to round out my collection.

I got a neon orange which is brighter then anything else in my collection. The pink that I got was a muted purple pink. I  also got a light teal cream with no hint of shimmer or sparkle but it will be a gorgeous base colour for a number of manicures.

The burgundy is pretty with a gold sparkle.

While shopping with a friend we both got a sparkle polish, mine has blue, red and silver hexagonal big glitter with silver micro glitter.

Sally Beauty Haul – featuring Orly

Sally Beauty was having (and may still be having) a 2 for 1 sale on Orly polishes, so of course I took advantage of it. I got four polishes all together; 2 one day and I went back a couple days later and got 2 more.

The first two I got were Fantasea and Royal Velvet. Fantasea is a pink purple with a hint of gold, it is an odd colour to describe but in person, I can’t stop looking at it. Royal Velvet is a match to one Orly put out in their Dark Shadows Collection in 2012 called Mysterious Curse. It is a purple with a blue shimmer but very dark so if you don’t like dark colours steer clear. I like it. 🙂 Both of these polishes have been on my wish list for a while.

Mysterious Curse + Fantasea

The last two I got are complete opposites. The colours are Goth and Oh Cabana Boy. Oh Cabana Boy is a neon pink shimmer. My bottle of Oh Cabana Boy was mislabelled as La Vida Loca. La Vida Loca is more of a purple pink though not a hot pink like this.While hot pink is usually not my thing, I love it. I think it is because it is neon. Goth is a black with silver sparkles (pretty self explanatory) and I don’t have any black in my collection with the exception of my nail art black so I thought this would be a nice addition because it isn’t just a flat black. I looked at the colour Liquid Vinyl but decided the one with a little depth because of the sparkles was a better choice. The black I really want is Scorn by Illamasqua but I can’t justify the cost at £13.50 even though it is on sale now for £5.00 the shipping charges are outrageous.

A Belated What I Got for Christmas Haul

Sorry this took so long to post, I have been very busy lately.

While shopping for Christmas presents I found this gem for a great price at Winners. It is a set of mini metallic shimmer polishes from Kleancolor. This set included pink, yellow, purple  navy, brown and one called jungle which is teal colour.

I got some fabulous surprises for Christmas and had a wonderful time with my family before my Mom had to return to work in Beijing. In my stocking I got Orly Flare, a gorgeous gold metallic shimmer; clearly I have a fixation when it comes to shimmer polishes. :S

“Santa” also brought me another Kleancolor set but this one was a mini treatment set which included a calcium nail strengthener, base coat, High shine Top Coat, a garlic nail growth , a nail hardener and finally cuticle oil.

I got a perfume that I have been dreaming about for a while, it is “G by Harajuku Lovers”  Harajuku Lovers is a brand started by Gwen Stefani and this perfume “G” is supposedly based on Gwen Stefani’s personality. Gorgeous bottle 🙂

My boyfriend kept teasing me before Christmas about what he was getting me and I admit I was getting a little nervous but he ended up getting me some fabulous presents. First was a nail stamping kit that I have wanted for a long time. It included 5 nail plates, a double sided stamper, scraper and a piece of silicone that is supposed to help hold the plates but just ends up being a little silly.

He also got me 3 polishes. They were Essie polishes, a teal called Trophy Wife and a purple called Sexy Divide. Both are gorgeous colours, I used the purple in my Royal Sparkle nail look as the base colour.

Last but not least is a dazzling purple and blue micro glitter in a clear base from Nicole by OPI called Gone Wishin’. This was also used in the Royal Sparkle look.

So all in all, I had a great Christmas because I got to spend it with my family who I hadn’t seen in months because they now live in Beijing. I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday season and spend it with your loved ones.

Thanks for Reading! :) :)
