Dance Legend Provence Petunia

Dance Legend Provence Petunia
Hi loves! Today I have the last glitter topper for you from the Dance Legend Provence collection, and it's called Petunia. Maria from Hypnotic Polish was so kind to send me this along with the previously reviewed Orchid and Pansy. The Dance Legend Provence collection consists of 18 shades, they all are glitters in a clear base meant as toppers. Fun fact: there is a little led light in the brush cap :-D.

So today I am showing you Dance Legend Provence Petunia which is a very girly glitter topper. It's made up of medium lavender, red and blue hexagonal glitter, with small lavender and tiny white hexagonal glitter added to that in a clear base. Finding undies for this one was a bit more tricky but I think that OPI Steady As She Rose is a nice match for it!

Swatches, Review & Nail art - Shimmer Sophie & Linna

Hi guys! I've got a whole bunch of pretty things to show you! I've got 2 new Shimmer polishes for you this week: Sophie is a very sweet pink and red glitter mix with some iridescence mixed in and Linna is a very pretty green and silver mix with some multicoloured sparkle. I am also showing you a new P2 polish I picked up called Summer Lovin' and I am also using some stencils again from She Sells Seashells!
Do you want to see how I combined all these goodies?

China Glaze Seas The Day

Hi loves! Another beauty sent to me by PrettyPolish, this time China Glaze Seas The Day from the 2014 Summer collection called Off Shore. PrettyPolish is a nail polish stockist that has a great mixture of indie brands and mainstream labels. The most exciting thing is they stock brands we usually can't get our paws on brands such as Zoya and Color Club, but also piCture pOlish, SpaRitual and other brands. Shipping is available internationally so be sure to take a look and check out what they have to offer!

China Glaze Seas The Day is a bright red creme shade. It actually looked a bit pink to me in the bottle but that totally disappears once you put this on the nail. The formula is lovely, 2 coats were all I needed and they went on smooth and buttery. One of the reasons I love reds from China Glaze is because I love the brush so much. I can apply with minor mistakes making clean up an easy job. Also, this one didn't stain my skin while doing clean up so extra yay!
