Her么me “World in Color” Jakarta

Hey honey bunnies!

Sorry for the radio silence this week, I am sooo tired! Not too much mentally, but just physically. Long hours at work + long commute + gym 3 times a week = not much time for nail painting 馃槈

But don’t worry, I haven’t been walking around with nudie nails! I’ve been wearing a stunning shade by聽Her么meJakarta from the World in Color collection. This shade was a gift from the gorgeous Sabrina. I really count myself as very lucky that she picked it out for me, because it is utterly gorgeous, and not available in France!

O.P.I. – My Vampire is Buff – NL E82

Sorry to spam you with swatches this weekend – after the nail art challenge in April, I have a huge backlog to get through. Plus, I like having plain photos like this as a reference!

I grabbed My Vampire is Buff from O.P.I.‘s Euro Centrale 2013 collection. It was just about the only one in that collection that really inspired me, since a lot of the others are similar to the China Glaze Spring collection – which I can buy cheaper than O.P.I. – sorry, it comes down to that for me at the moment !



My Vampire is Buff is a pale neutral, perfect as a nail art base. I used three coats to get it opaque, though I can’t stand thick coats, so I think if you are a bit more generous with your nail polish, two would be enough. Formula was pretty good, and I just got minimal bubbling – because I didn’t let the first coat dry properly, I suspect! That’s pretty standard with creme polishes though!

Basically, a nice, plain, clean, opaque base, for neons, pastels and/or nail art 馃檪

piCture pOlish – Beige

This evening has gone very quickly !

Not as fast as Tuesday evening; I took 3 hours to get home from work. I could have taken a heck of a lot longer, but Mr D came and picked me up in town. Otherwise I could have faced a two-hour walk home! I usually take about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 to commute, so I really freaked out about that ! Luckily, yesterday was Labour Day in France, and I didn’t have to work, so I got some time at home in the end.

I have a quick swatch for you at the moment. I’m not feeling the pastels/neons just yet – it’s still mostly dreary weather in France, but I’m sick of my winter polish. So I’m really falling in love with the neutrals right now !

PiCture pOlish is a brand that most bloggers seem to know about, so I won’t go into great lengths, other than to say it’s pretty pricey and hard to find out here. Once again though, Pshiiit’s nail polish shop聽is my favourite way to get hold of this brand !

Swatch – O.P.I. – Did you ‘Ear about Van Gogh ?

A quick post for this morning and I’ll put up a better longer one this afternoon. I just worked out how to watermark, switched to a better camera and from the Window’s native photo editing software to Picasa, so although I’ve been quiet recently, it’s been for a good reason 馃檪

Here is my third swatch from O.P.I.’s Holland Collection :聽Did you ‘Ear about Van Gogh ? Why not check out the swatches for I Don’t Give a Rotterdam and Thanks a Windmillion ?
