Space Ghost

Hey all,
Tomorrow is Model City Polish's 2nd anniversary!
To celebrate Nina will be having an epic sale ^_^
You must check it out!!
Now if that didn't pique your interest, this will.
Model City Polish - Ghost Stories

I stamped with A-England - Excalibur Renaissance
and used Messy Mansion for the first time! Plate MM33.
And I LOVE it! *_*
Silver solar systems and space ships. Ohhh yeahhh.

 But Ghost Stories is what's really out of this world.
A dark grey holographic that defies description.

 Are you drooling yet?
I'm so happy with my photos.
I know I did the polish justice, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. (>"<)
If this doesn't make you fall in love with Model City Polish, nothing will.
You know what I'll be doing tomorrow ;)
Loading up on polish and amazing cuticle oil. Fresh cut grass scent must be mine!
Happy shopping ;P

Jumpin Jack Flash

Hey all,
Yesterday I hung out with an almost six month old baby.
And I got exactly what I wanted.
A million kisses on chubby cheeks and coy smiles. ^_^
So satisfying. His "Ladies Man" cap didn't lie.
Today I bring you... 
 ellagee - It's A Gas, Gas, Gas
It's A Gas, Gas, Gas is a beautiful fuchsia holo with tiny gold holographic glitter.
I love this shade of pink. And the holo is just stunning.
This is my first time trying ellagee and I'm super impressed.
I'm wearing ONE coat!! O.O Can you believe that?! A++ formula!
It's definitely on par with A-England, and for a much more reasonable price.

 I stamped with Konad - Black using Pueen Buffet Plate 72.

Have a great Sunday, and if you're in the States, happy Memorial Day weekend!

Model City Polish - T-Virus

Hey all,
Today I've got something from one of my favourite brands.
Took me awhile to get to it, but boy am I pleased with this knockout.
Model City Polish - T-Virus

T-Virus is a medium blue crelly full of holographic hexes, squares and micro bars.
It was too pretty to stamp over (my original plan) so studs it was!
Perfect contrast, ermagersh! ^o^

This shade of blue really is something special. It's like blue raspberry jello!
And with the holo glitter twinkling through? Devine!

I love the mix of glitter. I'm an insane square glitter freak, I don't know why.
Also, I must mention I hate bar glitter with a passion. But I LOVE the micro bars!
They're so cute. And they lay nice and flat and don't irritate me in any way.
Hurray! Another winner from Model City Polish. ^_^
If you don't have any MCP in your life, you need some!!
Have a great night!

Double your Dose

Hey all!
Happy Sunday!
As soon as I'm done this post I'm going to cook myself up a hot dog and enjoy a noon hockey game.
Sounds pretty luxurious to me ;)
And I'm very happy to say I'm almost done my crochet project! 
I've been really lazy with it this last week because I know our time together will be over soon.
Another baby to set free into the universe. Damn post-partum.
Today I've got two manicures featuring polish I scored at  AuttyW's blog sale.
:D (thanks girl!)
First up I have a gradient with Zoya - Neve, a beautiful sapphire metallic.
I can't believe I didn't pick this up when it was first released, this colour is right up my alley!

 I paired it with Zoya - Richelle, a bronze leaning gold with holographic particles.
And that was that! Give me a simple metallic gradient and I'm satisfied.

Keep it simple has always been one of my mottos ;)
All you really need is bold simplicity.
_ _ _

When the China Glaze textures first came out I thought they were the worst.
But It's been a year and my opinion of them has mellowed. Now I'm intrigued.
Autty's sale was the perfect chance to try one out. So I grabbed Bump & Grind, a bright dark pink.

This is three coats, it's a bit on the sheer side. But the texture spreads like a dream.
I love how matte and stucco-y it is. It's a nice contrast to my usual Pixie Dusts.

With Color Club - Kismet & Cosmic Fate using MoYou Fairytale Plate 04 
I stamped some very cute little stars. I would have loved this mani as a little girl. <3

I'm glad I decided to give China Glaze textures a try.
I was pleasantly surprised.
Any polishes you initially hated, but then grew to love?

Uh oh, got to go, game's on!
Have a good one!

Neely by the Sea

Hey all,
 Happy Humpday.
Tonight I have one of my favourite polishes
Zoya - Neely
The cremes of last years Lovely collection are still tops with me. Big time.

Stamped with AEngland - Excalibur Renaissance
Using MoYou London Sailor Plate 05
Belugas on my accent and beachy awesomness on the rest.

 I love this so much! The little starfish and shells are too cute.
 The belugas are kind of bizarre. They look like messed up budgies to me.
Still cute though, so whatev.
Which old collections are still setting your heart on fire?
Have a great night!
I'm off to do some crochet and celebrate Montréal's win over Boston. ^_^

Indigo Bananas - Great Scott

Hey all,
Happy Saturday morning.
I was trying to get back to bed when the cat accosted me for pets.
Fur babies are the best wake up calls.
Rub me till you're ready to face the world.
So wise cat, so wise.
 She's still sitting with me now, being so chill.
What a sweetie pie.
Today I have Indigo Bananas - Great Scott 

Great Scott is a medium blue fleck polish
 packed with gold/green shimmer and holographic micro glitter. 
It is absolutely amazing in real life, beyond anything I had imagined.
Twinkling and shimmering at the same time, you have to see it to believe it.

 Like all Indigo Bananas, the formula was fantastic. This is two coats.
It also happens to glow blue in the dark!
But I was a complete bone head and forgot to get photos. U_U
I'm super annoyed with myself. 

Just look at that! It's like sun rippling off the ocean.
Trust me, you need this in your life!
I stamped with Konad - White using Pueen Buffet Plate 73
Aw crap, the cat just left me T_T
I guess that means it really is time to get up and embrace the day.
Have a good one!

Porcelain Pop

Hey all,
I have been a very lax blogger as of late. My bad.
I've been feeling a shift in my life. A refocusing.
It's about time.
And I've been watching a lot of playoff hockey.
Like every night.
And my team isn't even in it.
But it's such good hockey!
It's like watching a singer you're not into but still awed by their talent.
Any who. . . manicure pour vu.
 The Lady Varnishes - Porcelain Doll stamped with China Glaze - Grape Pop

 Porcelain Doll is a very sweet lilac base, though my pictures are leaning bluer,
With stunning gold fleck and maybe a bit of pink shimmer (?)
The Lady Varnishes really knows how to make intriguing polishes.
They always surprise me with the little details, that little extra zazz you didn't expect.

I stamped with Pueen Buffet Plate 54 :)
Well, that's all folks.
Have a great night and watch some playoff hockey one of these days!
It's the best soap opera around!
