NOTD BYS Red Carpet

So it turns out that being a Mum is pretty hard on your nails, so please excuse the condition of mine.

Today I am wearing the very beautiful BYS Red Carpet. This is the first time I have worn this polish and I am very impressed by the gorgeous vibrant red that seems to glow from within. I used two coats of polish but probably could have got away with one. The only downside to this polish is that it was a little thick which made application tricky but I should be able to fix that with a bit of polish thinner,

Not a great picture, it's early morning so I couldn't get a nice sunlight pic. It is a much brighter red in the sun.

I'm Back

Sorry for taking such a long time to return to you, life has been rather hectic since my little bubby girl arrived. Now that she is a bit older I am going to get back into the blog.

stay tuned..............

China Glaze 2NITE

Ahhh, pale blue holo goodness. I feel calm just looking at this polish. Love it! This is such a pretty colour even when you can't see the holo effect.

China Glaze Rodeo Fanatic

Please excuse my poor little nubins, I broke my thumb nail and had to cut all the others down. In my post with ChG Gussied Up Green I was saying how much I loved the Rodeo Diva collection, here is another polish from that collection. I was sitting here starting at my nails (does anyone else do this?) and thought that this colour would make a perfect base for Nfu.Oh 52. I was right - they are a match made in heaven. I have included a picture of that combo at the end.

China Glaze Gussied Up Green

I love this! It's one of my favourite greens. It is so rich and deep and just beautiful. China Glaze really outdid themselves with the Rodeo Diva collection and I ended up purchasing quite a few of them. After I applied this I had a thought that is would make a fantastic base for Nfu.Oh 55 so I have included a picture of that as well.

China Glaze Bridezilla

I am really enjoying wearing this polish! China Glaze Bridezilla is a super pretty pale pink with glass flecked shimmer. This is what I wanted from OPI Princesses Rule but that one was just to glittery for me.

China Glaze Cords

Hmmmmm, not really a great colour for me I don't think but I will keep it because I don't have anything else like it. I think this is one of those colours that would be perfect for a specific occasion or with a certain outfit but as an everyday colour it's just not for me. I had some serious issues with bubbles / dents / sheet marks so please excuse the rather lack luster photo - I don't think it was the fault of the polish, my application skills weren't great.
