Orly Cosmic FX Covered in Diamonds

Hello everyone,

Today I have for you another gem from the Cosmic FX Collection - Galaxy Girl.

I actually think this is my favourite one in the collection. It is a deep red-toned purple with green shimmer fx.

This is full coverage in 2 coats. Such an interesting colour and I think it has unfairly been overlooked a little due to the hype of Space Cadet. This picture is after 3 days of wear so it's pretty hardy.

I decided to layer it with Color Club's Covered in Diamonds.

I think this look is awesome! This does dry a bit bumpy but with a thick layer or 2 of top coat will be fine. Sorry that the picture is blurry, I'm still getting my camera sorted!

I hope you've all had great weekends.

Tilly, xx

Nails Inc - Cambridge Circus

Happy Monday everyone!

Mine's been surprisingly good! I am looking for a new job at the moment and have decided that being optimistic is the way forward and this has put me in a good "I-can-do-anything" mood :)

This is 2 coats of Cambridge Circus.

This is a beautiful medium lavender creme. I love it. Very pretty and girly after indulging in some of the cosmic fx's which I have on again now - will try to post pics tomorrow if I can get some good ones.

While you're here I just want to say thank you for sticking with me while I've been useless. I've not blogged through the Autumn/Winter yet I am finding it really difficult finding time in the daylight to take pics. I leave for work at 7am - it's dark. I get home at 6pm - it's pretty dusky and will soon be dark! I'm sure I will figure something out that works for me in the mean time I appreciate you reading :)

Tilly, xx

Hello!! A Catch-up.

Hello everyone.

I'm soo soo sorry I've been MIA. I've been on holiday and then since then it's been a whirlwind! I won't bore you to death with the details so...

Here are my latest purchases:

Avon: Golden Wine, Vintage Blue and Green With Envy. American Apparel: Poppy and Summer Peach.
Eyeko: Rain, Vampira, Military, Cosmic, Indigo and Lilac. Nails inc: Cambridge Circus.

A nice varied selection I'm sure you'll admint. Can't wait to wear Golden Wine and Cosmic Polish!

So here's what I'm currently rocking.

That's right it's Space Cadet (at last!) I don't need to babble on about it because you've seen it a gazillion times. All I have to say is that this is 4 coats and I have vnl!

Oh god these pictures are terrible. Not only am I taking pictures on my phone because my camera is still broken, but I have lost my base coat and run out of top coat - so my manis are just the polish on their own! It's a bit troublesome, I'll be honest.

Now I really need some advice from any of you lovely ladies (or guys) that have OPI Rapidry. I recently purchased a "new" bottle off ebay, but it absolutely reeks of nail polish remover. When I used it my polish came off slightly on the tips of the bristles. It dried pretty quickly but actually dulled down the finish and wasn't shiney at all. Is this the same with all Rapidry's or has this person just topped it up with remover?? Please help because I want justice if this is the case!!!!! Thanks guys :)

Love, Tilly.
