Slow Saturday Spam

I am spending my day cuddled up inside watching the crappy weather go by outside. Riveting stuff.

I have quite a huge backlog of swatches and NOTDs to share. So how about a spam post? Haven't done one of them in while.


Rainbow Honey Sakura Matsuri. One coat over one of Sally Hansen First Blush. Pretty flowers! The iridescent glitters give it a delicate, twinkly feel.




China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy. Three coats. One of my favourite neons. Such a fascinating shade.


With a layer of Nostalgic Lacquer Jem. Not sure I'm a fan although it might just be my choice of base.






CrowsToes Cheshire. One coat over China Glaze Let's Groove. At least.. I think it's Let's Groove. The more I look at the pictures the less I think it is. My favourite part of Cheshire are those dashes of gold.




Essie Sew Psyched. Two coats. Sorry about the scuff marks. I was late for a dinner one night and I realised my nails were naked. The horror! I managed to do this mani, get dressed and do my makeup in less than 15 minutes!





Candeo Orchid. Two coats. Orchids are my favourite type of flower. Mine are currently in bloom! I want to try my luck with microwave drying a few blooms this year.




Sportsgirl Nude. Two coats. A peachy-nude with hidden pink shimmer. It's like Ulta3 Blossom Fever with a much better formula. Looks really good with my skin - no lobster hands!



With a coat of Lush Lacquer Party Hearty. There were a ton of hearts in there so no fishing required. Only thing is... I couldn't work out whether I thought it was ugly or not!






Darling Diva Polish Sparkler. One coat over TBN Blue Fluoro. I quite liked the colour combination of this one. And the subtle iridescent base was a nice touch.





China Glaze Let's Groove stamped with 2030. Plate m65. I really love this design. Pretty roses!





Zoya Kylie. Three coats. Gifted to me by a sweet friend. It's my perfect soft pink - no lobster or zombie hands here! I feel as though I have been looking for this shade for years. Seemingly ordinary and even slightly boring, yet.... perfect.

  2. Gorgeous bunch of nail photos. I'm seeing so much of the indie polishes and it's making me tempted to give some a go. Some just look so fun.

  3. Omg I NEED Sakura Matsuri. I hope she does bring it back like the website says she will, it's so pretty! Were the flowers easy to get out or did you have to fish for them?

  16. *swoon*  Your spam is always so amazing!  I just bought that Lush Lacquer after seeing your pic.  I have passed it up so many times, just assuming it was another Happy Birthday dupe, but it really is something different!!  :D

    i know what you mean about NL Jem - i think it's the white bar glitter - it's too long! i think if she got rid of it or used a shorter/smaller size I'd wear it all the time. Sakura Matsui is so sweet on you!

  21. everything looks amazing <3

  22. Yes. I think you might be right. I can't pinpoint it, but something is a little off...

    ReplyDelete
  23. You um.. do need Sparkler :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. It's very diff from Happy Birthday etc. Still not sure I'm convinced by it though. Will have to try it again!

  25. I was in such a frenzy! Granted all I did for makeup was slap some BB Cream, liner and mascara on XD
