Jelly Sandwich with Rescue Beauty Lounge Fire Queen


Hello all!  I was very eager to use Rescue Beauty Lounge Fire Queen in a manicure, and I haven't done enough jelly sandwiches in my lifetime, so I combined the two.


I started off with two coats of Fire Queen, then added a coat of OPI Pirouette My Whistle (so glad that I finally have this polish!)  I finished with one more coat of Fire Queen and then top coat.


At three coats, Fire Queen still wasn't completely opaque, but the nail line was pretty well disguised.  I like how this manicure turned out; very soft and sweet, and Fire Queen truly is such a gorgeous colour.

Pretty Serious Blue Gums On Boxing Day


Hello all!  Another swatch for you, of one of my older untried polishes.  This is Pretty Serious Blue Gums On Boxing Day, a green jelly shot through with blue shimmer.  I used two coats but I really should have gone with three as it was still a bit sheer; the formula was very easy to work with, though.  It's a nice polish but I don't think I'd wear it without nail art as plain green isn't my favourite nail colour to wear.



My fingers look a little funky here - sorry about that, it was overly bright when I was taking the photos!

Rock Lolly Water Marble \ white, yellow, orange & pink


Hello all!  I have a gorgeous water marble to show you today, it reminds me of rock lollies.



I started with two coats of Sation Strumming My Nails (white creme), then water marbled with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, China Glaze Happy Go Lucky, Zoya Thandie and OPI Shorts Story.  All the polishes worked beautifully for marbling.



I used a bit of a different technique from the 'flower' shape I've done before; I tried a design like you see on the top of mille-feuille desserts.  Here's an example on video by My Simple Little Pleasures.



I absolutely love how this manicure turned out!  The colours are amazing, the design looked fantastic and they are so bright and happy.  Everyone said my nails looked like lollies and candy.


My right hand!
