Where did I go??

Hi guys... long time no blog!!

I stepped away from blogging to focus on my YouTube and Instagram pages.. have also adopted 2 dogs since my last post, taking the house count up to 5 animals (we already had 3 cats) and built a brand new house and are finally settling in after a year of being here (boxes are still packed and I don't wanna talk about it...).

I'm not sure if I will be blogging regularly from now on because life is crazy.

Thanks for all the lovely comments about my blog and wishing me well during my absence. It was not unseen.

If you miss my posts you can always follow me on Facebook, Instagram or YouTube. I upload to those a bit more frequently.

Polish Envy Swatches & Review!

Hi guys!

Today on the blog I have some beautiful polishes from the Melbourne based polish company, Polish Envy. 

They contacted me to try some of their polishes and I was really excited to, since I love Australian polish and supporting Australian companies, plus I had never heard of the brand before and I love trying new companies to test formulas and quality.

I got sent 4 frosted shimmer polishes to review from Polish Envy that are the perfect shades for Easter and spring, so let's get to the swatches!

Bettie Pain Polish - Bowie Collection Swatches & Review

Hi guys,

Today on the blog I have the new Bowie Collection from the Australian artisan brand Bettie Pain Polish. Personally I think the best Indie polishes are the ones from Australia, but I may be bias because I think we do most things better than the rest of the world ;)

David Bowie was a legend and an icon and inspired generations of 'misfits' and 'weirdos' to embrace their strange, and in doing so influenced some of the best new artists of our generation. I know Bowie was a huge influence to Megan, the creator of Bettie Pain Polish, so I knew how special this collection was to her and that it would be incredible.

I wasn't wrong. 

The polishes are so unique and gorgeous and their formulas are so easy to apply and self level like a dream! I only applied top coat to the first polish 'China Girl' as it dried with a slight textured finish, but all the other polishes have been photographed without top coat. They didn't need them!

Let's get right into the swatches!

Powder Perfect The Castle Collection Swatches & Review

Hi guys!

Today on the blog I have a swatch and review of the Powder Perfect The Castle Collection for you guys!

I just absolutely adore Jacinta's polishes so I am really excited to share these with you. If you haven't purchased any Powder Perfects for your polish collection already then you are missing an amazing and vital polish brand!

I had to swatch these twice as my original pictures got 'lost' but the polish is so easy to work with and opaque that it wasn't a big deal at all. Even the lighter pastel colours are opaque in 2 coats which is a huge plus when you are swatching.

Let's jump into the swatches!

Edgy Splatter Polish Nail Tutorial

Did you say Hello Kitty by OPI splatter Nails? Sounds like a great idea to me! 

To do these I used 4 of the Hello Kitty by OPI polishes. SO edgy and graphic without any tools or high skill level needed. Just make sure you give yourself a break between doing each hand or you may pass out from all that blowing. 

That's what she said. 

But seriously, I got a touch light headed by the time I moved to the other hand

This easy (and very messy) design is perfect for any skill level and all you'll need to do them is polish, a drinking straw and a peel off barrier or tape to help with clean up.
