Hong Kong has lovely Revlon glitter polishes which I don't find here and this is another one, Revlon Girly, that I picked up on my recent trip. It is aptly named as it really does look sweet and girly ;)
I used 1 coat of Essence Enchanted Fairy underneath as I wasn't sure how opaque it was gonna be but I think 3 coats should be sufficient if you are using it alone. Above is 2 coats.

Just wanted to share this lovely NARS palette which I got back in late Dec but since it is still available online, guess it isn't too late? :)
Description from the NARS website:
Top left: Zen (Neutral beige)
Top right: Miss Liberty (Soft, shimmering peach)
Bottom left: Desire (Bright pink)
Bottom right: Deep Throat (A flirty, sheer peach with golden shimmer)
I only had NARS Gaiety so this was a good addition, and I liked that it has a contour/ highlight shades along with pink and peach blushes that go well on my skin tone.

Have a couple of posts to catch up on so hoping I can clear my backlog soon (-.-)" Here is Couleur Inc Iris, a very dark navy blue (such a misnomer right? :p), which I got as it reminded me of Chanel Blue Satin.
I stamped with Sally Hansen Silver Sweep + Pueen 44, and added Daiso holographic glitter polish for a starry night look :)
I also tried out Revlon Liquid Quick Dry but it was a major fail. Click below for plain swatch and the result of the quick dry.

With this, I have finally finished swatching my Catrice haul, phew....Catrice No Snow Petrol is a gorgeous medium petrol blue with blue shimmers and applies easily in 2 coats. I got the Pueen stamping plates as I loved the upholstery/wallpaper kind of design ;) So here I have stamped with China Glaze Passion and Pueen 49 and I like the result despite my sub-par stamping :p

Hi, I meant to post this on 1 Jan but was lazing around too much that day :p Anyway, happy new year! Took the opportunity to try out Revlon Ruby Ribbon (fushia glitter with magenta and holographic bar glitter), which is on my index and pinky. I have 2 coats over 1 coat of Essence Glamorous Life which appears similar in color. You can see the close up bottle shot below.
As it was New Year's, wanted to have an appropriate theme, so for middle and ring fingers, applied Essence Galactic Black and I haphazardly drew on the fireworks with Color Club Halo Hues shades.
That's all for my first mani in 2014, which I'm not entirely satisfied with, but I guess that means more room for improvement? ;)
Thanks for viewing!
