China Glaze Frostbite with Fairy Dust

Oh My God!! I am sooooo in love with Fairy Dust!  How come I have taken so long to come across this little beauty?!  I very nearly didn't buy it, but all China Glaze were buy 2 get one free in Sally's,  the display was almost empty so I just picked it up for the sake of getting a freebie!  It just looked like another "glittery top coat" on the dimly lit display rack.  Took it home and put it with the stash and there it stayed for a week until I was trying out a sponged nail and needed a glitter top coat to "blend" the colours I had sponged.  I painted a coat and the sun hit the nail,  (we don't get too much of that shiny yellow thing in the sky here), and it was love at first sight!  It is so sparkly and gorgeous, almost holographic.  I have since been Fairy Dusting everything!

Anyway, enough of me raving on.  Here is the mani I have been wearing all week.

As always I used Nail Envy as my base, 2 coats of China Glaze Frostbite (which is a little darker than the picture shows) 1 coat of the lush Fairy Dust and my faithful top coat Seche Vite. 

The picture doesn't really do the mani justice.  It really is much more sparkly in real life.

I have been wearing this now for 5 days with no signs of tip wear at all so I am really pleased with that and I have had so many people compliment me on the colour.  Now all I need to decide is what colour and design do I paint for my holiday?  I go on Friday (yayyyyy!!)  One thing i am sure of, is, it will most definately be topped with Fairy Dust!

Oh and here is a quick picture of the nail I was creating when I fell in love!

Thanks for reading

Leighton Denny Leopard Print/OPI DS Sapphire

I have just spent a week in Center Parcs, not something I EVER want to do again!  It was for my work so I had to go and stay in a "shed" with 2 of the ladies I look after.  It poured with rain every day and was awful!  If  I never see another shed or tree as long as I live it will be too soon!  Anyways, I'm home now and have finally had time to do my nails so enough of me moaning on about  having to go on the "holiday from hell".

This week I have used Leighton Denny 3 Times A Lady for the base colour, China Glaze For Audrey for the stripe and the spots are Leighton Denny Plush Pink.  

As always I used OPI Nail Envy as a base and Seche Vite for the top coat.

Those of you who have read my previous blog may remember how excited I was to have found OPI DS Sapphire on ebay so here is a quick picture of that:-

It is absolutely gorgeous!  I am now on a mission to find the DS shade Original but that seems to be a bit like trying to find rocking horse poo.  I found one on ebay for £20 plus p&p, which I would happily pay, but the seller only accepts paypal and I no longer use paypal as some scum bag hacked into my account and stole my money :0(  I will keep looking though!

OK, I am gonna leave you with a picture of  "the shed"!  Thanks for reading!
