I Love Nail Polish – Undenied

Hey girls!

Today’s been a bit of a nightmare, so I’m blocking it all out by posting. That seems healthier somehow than going crazy and shouting my head off 😉 these are photos I took a couple of weeks ago, but hadn’t had time to get them blog-ready since, so it’s about time!

You may have noticed that I have a bit of an obsession with the I Love Nail Polish Ultrachrome line. So when some new ones were brought out for Spring, I couldn’t resist getting them! Especially Undenied, which, since it has a burgundy-violet-purple-indigo shift, is right up my street, ya know? I love the colour range! It didn’t have the gold shift that ILNP talks about on their website for me; maybe it has to be swatched underwater for that. Me? I’m an air breather, so, ya know…

This is 3 coats (since 2 was a little patchy), over a clear base coat, and no top coat.

Has anyone else gone for any Ultrachromes yet? Are you happy with them?

I Love Nail Polish – Sirene

I Love Nail Polish - ILNP - Sirene - Collage

Hey ladies!

I hope everyone is having a better week than I am. Work is really tough right now. Long hours, and I have to try to keep a cool head when it feels like everyone else is freaking out. It’s pretty draining.

Still, on a more positive note, I have a gorgeous multichrome to show you again, by I Love Nail Polish. Sirene is also in the ultrachrome line, which means you don’t have to put it over a black base. My swatches are with no base coat, and no top coat either. It doesnt dry fast, but if you’re in a rush, a quick dry top coat will be your best friend! Continue reading

I Love Nail Polish – Nostalgia

I Love Nail Polish Nostalgia

 

Yep, I have another photo-heavy duochrome swatch post for you 🙂

I love I Love Nail Polish! It’s a little pricey, but totally worth it. So I’m trying to collect all of the Ultrachromes. I got Birefringence, Cygnus Loop, Mutagen and My Little Glacier and talked about them in this post, and today I have the fifth to show you, Nostalgia. As usual, totally bought with my own money, and if you like what you see, you can order it here 🙂

ILNP - Nostalgia -005

Also as usual, these swatches are not taken underwater. If any mermaids are reading, lucky you! Your nails must look great 😉

I used 3 coats over a clear base, and finished it off with a coat of Sèche Vite (although it dries shiny anyway). Nostalgia has a very original colour shift (at least, that I haven’t seen before!) : merlot-rose-copper-gold-green !

I only have 2 reservations about this polish – (1) you need 3 coats. Two coats remains visibly patchy; and (2) it does show brush strokes a little. So, neither are really deal breakers, but if they are a very big deal for you, then it’s best to know that before you pay $12.50 for the bottle (12ml) 🙂

And here’s some more pictures!

Ozotic 502 Swatches *picture heavy*

Ozotic 502 Collage

 

This is the last of my Ozotic collection, I wanted to get around to swatching them all, so here ya go!

502 changes from red to burgundy, through orange to gold. There’s a hint of green in the bottle, but I didn’t get that to come out on the nail.

Application is pretty standard for an Ozotic – I used one coat over black, since that brings out the colour shift most strongly. The swatches aren’t underwater, and there’s no top coat 🙂 Continue reading

Ozotic 504 *picture heavy*

Ozotic 504 Nail Polish Collage

Happy Hump Day honies!

We’re half way thorugh the week, so I thought I’d celebrate with a duochrome photo fest 🙂 today’s nails are Ozotic – 504. I know that these guys are going to be selling out since they aren’t being manufactured any more, but a few are still available in some places, so check out the Picture Polish distributor list if you really want to get hold of them. All of my Ozotics are my own purchases, so this isn’t a press sample or anything. Pictures are of 2 coats over black, but no top coat.
