Models Own Silver Fox & Some Glittery Layering

Well everyone I am really getting into the party season and was craving some glitter.

I chose Models Own Silver Fox.

First I did 1 coat of Essie Loophole and then layered 1 coat of Silver Fox. I LOVE this sooo much. It was subtle enough to wear for work but pretty enough for people to notice. The only down side is that it took 3 coats of Orly Sec 'n' Dry topcoat and it still was a tiny bit bumpy. Sec 'n' Dry is the thinnest topcoat I have ever used though. Does anyone else have a similar opinion?

So I got home and went absolutely crazy with my other Models Own Glitters and Color Club's Magic Attraction.

Thumb - Silver Fox & Magic Attraction, Index - Silver Fox & Magenta Divine & Emerald City & Gold Finger, Middle - Silver Fox & Magenta Divine, Ring - Silver Fox & Magenta Divine & Gold Finger, Little - Silver Fox & Gold Finger.

All of the above are topped with 1 coat of Magic Attraction to give it extra sparkly holoness :)

I think these could give some of the OPI Burlesque glitters a run for their money!

Now I've got to try and get these off. Does anyone have a chisel?!

Tilly, xx

Eyeko - Vampira Polish

Good evening everyone.

Well my week has been busy..."again?!" I hear you say. Yes, well...I got the job!!!! I am so, so happy as it is in a brilliant company and is a major step-up into the field I am interested in. I never dreamed of getting everything I wanted in a new job, but I feel very lucky as it seems this job has it all - pay rise, better hours, large office with professional and young staff, great future prospects and they pay for their staff to learn and get a qualification while at work! Hopefully things will settle down enough - now that I have taken care of the job front - that I can start blogging properly again.

Today I bring you Vampira Polish from Eyeko.

This is 3 coats of Vampira it needs a top coat to give it that extra sparkle and shine. I love it though. Black with red glitter.

I thought I would do a comparison of my black/red shades as I had a couple of people ask me about them.

L-R is BB Couture Napa Valley Red, Eyeko Vampira, Avon Wicked and Eyeko Vampira (without topcoat).

Wicked and Vampira are quite similar in colour, but it's when you look closely that you notice that Vampira is that little bit more special. Definitely worth £3.50.

Napa Valley Red is obviously gorge and not really at all like the others - I just thought I would throw it in for good measure!

See ya soon.

Avon Golden Wine

Hello everyone :) I've missed you!

I'm sorry it's been so long. Life has been busy... job interviews, family crisis's, more family crisis's, not many daylight hours...knitting! Lol. Yes, I've taken up knitting as there's not much else to do when it's dark in the winter.

Here today I have the beautiful Avon Golden Wine.

A gorgeous deep red jam-packed with gold shimmer. It's just stunning. This is 3 coats.

And look how it looks with flash too...

I am still without a decent camera but will hopefully have this solved soon. I have a second interview on Tuesday for a great company that I would love to work for. So wish me luck!

Until next time.
