Nails: "in gold blood" part 2.

A quick update to the post I did a few days ago..

This is what happened when I added an extra coat to my nails that I had on the other day.

In normal light, you can't really see any of the gaps between the glitter.
I think it looks a bit like a broken version of minx gold lightening. I was super shiny, and I really enjoyed wearing it after I had stepped up the glitter content, and made it really special!

Nails: chinchilly with leopard print, over broadway nail real life brush on gel.

Today's nails are the result of a few experiments.. There are a lot of thing people like to try do at home, rather than pay for them to be done to save money, and I am one the them. I will give anything a go when it come to hair, make-up, and nails at home. I always dye my own hair, and have even tried cutting it (that one is best left to the pros!). So when I saw a nail extension kit that promised salon nails at home, I thought "why not?". The box promised it would be easy with no filing.

Here is the results.. 
After I did the gel extensions I put Essie Chinchilly with some gold leopard print.

Nails: "In gold blood"

Actually, it's just called Gold. The no7 summer collection is out, and the nail polishes in the collection are, a gold and a sliver glitter top coats. I have never been the biggest fan on No7 nail polishes, but they seem to have changed the formulation in the last few years, the brush is better too! but when I saw this in boots I had to have it. I was helping my best friend when she was having a bit of a problem and she picked it up for me as a "thank you" which was very lovely of her <3 
..So here the picture..
this is it just "gold" on it own. I think it will look fab over a pale pink, like OPI's pinking of you or Pink Friday.. Which are similar, post on that coming soon. 

Gold, is a clear polish with both tiny, and larger pieces of glitter. I am guessing that it will be limited edition because it is in the summer collection, but I couldn't say for sure.

What do you think of the new No7 collection?

Nails: Holographic nail polish comparison.

Ever since I picked up a bottle of GOSH holographic nail polish, I have been searching for another one.
Holographic nail polish aren't easy to come by in the U.K unless you are willing to pay a lot of money and pick them up online. 
Gosh holographic nail polish. Without topcoat.
-Top coat spoils the effect.
-chips VERY quickly (hours)
- Expensive online.
-Hard to apply.
- Pretty! The effect is amazing. Photos do not do it justice.
