A England

Hello Lovelies. Today I am sharing a swatch of a beautiful red polish called Rose Bower from the brand A England. This is my first A England polish. I recently came across this brand and my latest addiction to Holo polishes attracted me in buying this polish. Rose Bower is a red polish with scattered holographic particles. The formula is excellent and applied very easily without streaks or patches. I applied 2 coats of polish for the pictures below. I didn't see the Holo effect right away, inside the house. But when I stepped out in the sunlight, I am left speechless. Hence I took all the pictures outside in the sunlight. Hope you all will liked reading about this new brand of polish that I have discovered.

Gold and Diamonds

Hello Hello. I am very excited about today's blog post. I am sharing some swatches of new Fun Lacquer polishes. I have been eyeing them for a while and finally caved in and bought these two. (To see swatches of previous Fun Lacquer polishes click HERE.)

The first one is called 24 Karat Diamond. This is a silver holographic glitter polish. The type of glitter used here is much more sparkling than the regular glitter, so it sparkles like crazy when in sunlight, with multicolor sparks bouncing all around. The drying time is one thing that isn't very fast for this, but I don't care you can always use top drying coat for that. For the pictures below I used 3 coats of 24 Karat Diamond, without any top coat.


The second polish is Million Dollar Dream. This is a golden holographic glitter polish. Again this one is too, more sparkly than the regular glitter polishes and the effect in the sunlight is gorgeous. For pictures below I used 3 coats as it wasn't opaque enough in 2 coats. I also did not use any top coat.


Both these polishes retail at $16.00 USD each. Hope you enjoyed this post. To see more Holographic Polishes, click HERE.

Holo Chevron Nails

Hello Peeps, today is Chevron nail art day :) This design is inspired from @sveta_sanders. I saw her tutorial & knew I had to create this nail art right away with my new Island Girl Holographic Grey Polish (see it's swatch HERE). Other polishes used are OPI's Non-Stop White, Formula X's Dark Matter and Zoya's Darcy. I guess by now you all know how much I love matching my jewelry with my nail art. What do you think of my matching bracelet below? To see matching rings to my nail art click HERE.

Once Upon A Time

Hello Friends, today's nail art is dedicated to my latest favorite show called ONCE UPON A TIME. In case you have been living under a rock and haven't heard of this show before, its a fairy tale drama series that takes place in the fictional town of Storybrooke, whose residents are characters from various fairy tales transported to the "real world". Basically, any fairy tale character you have ever heard of, from Snow White to Rumpelstiltskin to Elsa to Wicked Witch Of Oz, you name it, can be found on this show. Every season, new characters get added to the story line apart from the original ones but it always amazes me how they all come around and are related to one another. The fans of this show are called 'Oncers' and I guess I am one of them ;) Currently the show is in its Season 5 and today is its 100th episode. So I decided to create a Once Upon A Time inspired nail art. Hope you all like these and if you want to catch up on this show, the seasons are available on Netflix.


And here is the original image from the show, that inspired my nails.

Polishes used are OPI's my boyfriend scales the walls, Revlon's Golden and American Apparel's Peacock. I used a dotting tool to create this nail art.
