OPI OY another Polish joke

I've been waiting for some sun to try out this colour but have given up here it is! OPI's OY another Polish joke is as bright as a gold gets. It is yellow based with full on micro glitter particles which is perfect for those who like to be noticed and would look even more amazing on a darker skin tone. I have applied 3 coats aswell as deciding to give stamping another go, O.K I know the placement isn't perfect but hey I'm really enjoying it!

Leighton Denny Cool Blue with stamping

Today I have Leighton Denny Cool Blue which is one of his newest exclusive to QVC colours. It was previewed back in September but only released a couple of weeks ago and I have to say the wait was worth it. It applies beautifully as you would expect from LD polishes and is a gorgeous full coverage baby blue which I absolutely love. I have at last tried stamping for the first time for the tips which although not exactly perfect I really enjoyed and think it has added to my mani. I'm not sure why but it makes me think of the sea and surf...hope you like it!

Nails inc sprinkles Sweets Way

Nails inc Sprinkles Sweets Way immediately came to mind when I was thinking of my easter mani. The name's ideal for the Easter weekend and the colours have a very spring like feel to them silver, baby pink and turquoise glitter particles all set within a milky base. I have applied 2 coats which gives a lovely covering of glitter but allows the natural nail to show through which I think suits this polish. I've also been super brave as decided I fancied a change so the long nails have gone and are now shortened...hope you like them still!

Leighton Denny Dusky rose

Well today I thought I'd keep it simple and paint a polish to match my pointe shoes! This is an exclusive to QVC Leighton Denny colour called Dusky rose which I have just received in the latest auto delivery drop. It's a soft pink with a slight silver sheen running through it which helps to give a naturally well groomed look to the nail. I've applied 3 coats to give full coverage with crystal finish top coat to give it it's gloss...pretty pretty pretty!

OPI Can't find my Czechbook

This is the one I've been saving as I knew I was going to love it.  Can't find my Czechbook is another from my fav of the moment  OPI Euro centrale collection. It's a vibrant teal blue with a hint of green and really comes to life on the nails. They say I hope you take credit, because I must have this aqua! which is oh so true as have just ordered my second bottle so I don't run out!

Nails inc London Town Magnetic

This is my first go at a wave effect magnetic and I have to say I found it alot easier than the fishnets to get right. London Town looks pretty subtle in the bottle but when you get it on the nails it comes to life. The magnet effect always brings out the different colours in the polish to give it that truly airbrushed 3D effect which I love. This one has shades of milk chocolate and taupes in it and I have to say I can't stop looking at it!

Nails inc Camden Town Neon Crackle

So I fancied something a bit different for my mani today...and boy did I get it! I applied 2 coats of Nails inc Floral street a pure white for my base followed by a coat of NI Camden Town Neon Crackle which is a true bright in your face neon pink. The white base seems to partner neons perfectly bringing them to life and showing off the vibrancy they deserve. Only trouble is it makes me hungry everytime I look at it as it reminds me of jam and cream...yum yum!!!

NOPI All Kendalled-Up

Here's the second from the NOPI Kardashians collection I got at the weekend All Kendalled-Up. To be honest the first one only lasted a day on my nails as I wasn't sure it suited so here's one much more to my personal taste. I love hot pink polishes and this one's a beaut. It's a great cream high gloss hot pink which applies very smoothly and is full coverage in 2 coats so gets the thumbs up from me. This one will definately make it past the it.

Nicole by OPI Kim-Pletely In Love

OK so I don't really do nudes as some of you will know but when I picked up the Nicole by OPI Kardashians Kolor collection at the weekend thought I'd give it a go. Kim-Pletely In Love is basically a pink sheer with tiny particles of green, silver, blue and lilac which although looks pretty in sunlight is too much of an understated colour for me. I built it up with base, 4 coats of colour and top coat but alas it's still sheer...never mind onto the next one!

OPI Suzi's Hungary AGAIN!

OPI Suzi's Hungary AGAIN! is the 2nd polish I've got for you from the much loved by me Euro collection. It's a beautiful salmon pink which is bold enough to be noticed, and was even commented on by my visit to the bank today so I know it's a winner! It says Thank goodness there are zero calories in this warm and yummy pink! and is very similar to my all time favourite LD's Just Perfect so of course I love this one and think it will look even better in the Summer.

OPI You're such a Budapest

OPI You're such a Budapest is from their Euro Centrale collection which launched 2 days ago. It's the collection I've most been looking foward to and it doesn't disappoint. This polish is a periwinkle blue/purple and is perfect for those of us who can't wait for spring as it's so cheerful. It says If I let you borrow this periwinkle-purple, will you go away?  I'm not sure I'll be letting this one out of my sight it's so gorgeous!

OPI DS Classic

OPI DS Classic is a great neutral with a twist. It's from their Designer series and is infused with diamond dust which makes it dazzle on the nails. It's an elegant shimmer of rose beige which has holographic qualities and looks amazing in sunlight. This collection applies so easily to give the smooth finish we are all after, perfect for those of us who are looking for that something extra special in a polish...I'll be hunting out some more to add to my collection!

Leighton Denny Steel Appeal

Leighton Denny Steel Appeal is in fact Leightons favourite from his range so far. It is as dark as grey gets before it becomes black. It's a charcoal with tiny multidimensional multicoloured particles which give it it's depth and enable it to glisten rather than being a flat colour. I have tipped it with I am Diva siver glitter to contrast and give it a touch of bling!

OPI Gouda Gouda Two Shoes

OPI Gouda Gouda Two Shoes is from their Holland collection and goes with anything. It's a dark peach/rose with a hint of terracotta which could almost be described as brick colour. It also has tiny microparticles of gold shimmer set within it which although very subtle contribute towards making it expensive looking especially at night. It's the perfect neutral for those of us who aren't too keen on barely there nudes and applies like a dream. A perfect addition to anyones nail wardrobe!

Nails inc Camden Crackle

Nails inc Camden crackle is from their special effects range. It's a true black and as I was unsure as to whether I would like it I have teamed it with two coats of NI Primrose Hill as a base to give a more subtle look. It looks amazing and I love it so am looking forward to trying it with a more vibrant colour as a base soon. I added a top coat to give a glossy finish which is fab...I love that it makes it so easy for any of us who aren't very good at nail art to get the look!

OPI 3 Plums I win

OPI 3 Plums I win is from the Las Vegas collection which was launched 2002/3 (one of my favourite places I've visited so far). It's a fab colour for all us pink/purple fans as it combines both to give a striking mix of the two tones. The metallic sheen it has makes it truly captivating in any light. I found this one hidden away in an old box at the weekend and I'm really glad I did...isn't it great when you rediscover polishes from the past?!!!

Nails inc The Thames

Nails inc The Thames is perfectly named to resemble the colour of the river. It's predominantly a grey which changes depth from mid to dark depending on the amount of light which is on it, changing with the weather and time of day. It's a great neutral to choose after all the party nails of the season, a classy classic to take you to any occasion.
                          HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL X
