OPI Where Did Suzi's Man-go?

Hello everyone.
I have been late with my blog posts recently. This mani is one I wore 2 days ago and loved.
As I have said, the OPI Brazil Collection is amazing! And I have had fun trying my picks out. 
When I first saw swatches of the collection, it was this polish that stood out. Such a cool orange (orange polish always catches my eyes) and I have noticed that OPI does not do many oranges, or any, like this shade. 
On to the polish :)

Where Did Suzi's Man-go is a bright, almost pastel orange creme. Does that make any sense? haha.
It is so cute and summery, and lovely on the nails. I paired this with an accent nail of OPI A Woman's Prague-ative, a copper colour with gold shimmer. This was one coat over the base, and although I do not really like this polish, I thought the colours might work nicely together.

This polish almost makes me miss summer, and summer is my least favourite season haha. It's so bright and happy and such a beautiful tone. I think I will be taking this out again very soon!

OPI Live.Love.Carnival

Hi everyone :D
I have received the rest of my birthday present from my boyfriend in the mail today and I was so excited! I can't wait to try them all! I got a few from the OPI Brazil collection and one from the China Glaze Sea Goddess collection, which I was so excited for. 
OPI Live.Love.Carnival caught my eye in swatches, I love a good coral and this one was so bright and vibrant. I have been tossing up so much if I should buy OPI Toucan Do It If You Try which is quite similar but more orange (I also gravitate towards oranges haha).
On to the polish!

p.s. Do not take your nail photos after the shower, my cuticles look so dry D:

When I first applied this polish, it looked so red which I was really sad about. I have a colour so similar to it and thought this had much more pink to it. Certain lights give this shade much more of a red/orange tone.
In fact this is a dark coral leaning pink. I take my nail photos outside and I think it showed it the most colour accurate.
Live.Love.Carnival had a funny formula. It was a bit gloopy which I have found with a few OPI's lately, and it also tended to drag a bit. It could have been much worse, so this polish gets a pass haha. 
As you can tell from my swatches, the polish had some wear and tear today at work sadly. I had no big chips at all though so that was great.
Accent nail is one coat of China Glaze Snow Globe and all topped with Seche Vite.

Such a nice colour for summer, too bad summer's over now and we're going into Autumn :(
Have I mentioned how much I love the OPI Brazil Collection?? Such beautiful shades!

Until next time..

Glam Polish Frankenslime

How is everyone?
Sorry for the lack of posts, I'm starting a new position at work and it has been stressing me so much I have not wanted to paint my nails :(
I have been loving matte top coat though so I decided to try another indie I have not worn before. This is Glam Polish Frankenslime :D

Frankenslime is a purple and lime green hex and smaller glitter in a sheer green base. I love these colours together, they're really cool! I wish I had done another coat because as you can probably see, it's quite patchy and I can see nail! And in the next photo a big piece of lime glitter feel off before
This is layered one coat over one coat of In the Limelight topped with Revlon Matte Top Coat.

It is amazing in the bottle!
Thanks for stopping by

Glam Polish Energizer Bunny

Hey guys :)
I received a Revlon Matte Top Coat for my birthday because I've been wanting one for a while. I love the look of Matte nails and I was so keen to try it.
I have seen people mattify indie polishes and glitters and they look amazing! I decided to try it with Glam Polish Energizer Bunny.

Glam Polish is a really cute pink based polish with pink circle glitter, bigger circle silver glitter and purple and blue micro glitter. I love indie polishes so much, I just can't afford them haha. When there is a sale I'm sure to get some and really love Glam Polish because it's based in Australia and her polishes are gorgeous.
This is one coat over Orly Lollipop with Revlon Matte Top Coat.

I am keen to mattify some other indie polishes because it just makes the glitters stand out, I love it!


Birthday Nails!

Hey! This is quite delayed but I have been quite busy after my birthday trying to fit in everything, I'm kind of glad its all over haha.
Yes, I turned 21 on the 25th! :D I had a great day (even though I was working) but I came home and had a great night. I just can't believe I'm 21, I feel so much older all of a sudden :P
I didn't have time to plan birhday nails which I was quite disappointed about so I decided I would just jazz up my current mani with some glitter and try doing a cupcake!

I quickly took some photos in the car on the way to work. The cupcake did not turn out how I expected but I'm kinda proud of my first attempt. I just used stripers and a doting tool to do the bottom of the frosting. I then did pink polka dots on the frosting but they looked weird haha, so I dotted over them with white in hope they looked like sprinkles!

Thanks for stopping by!
