Random But Awesome Spam

China Glaze Ick-a-body

Armour Rain Glitter

China Glaze For Audrey.

Spotty Dotty Black over For Audrey

Essence.....something. It was horrid and frosted so I ditched it. Ugh.

Lancome Triple Tenue 366 over above Essence. This is not glitter but not quite flakies, unusual and awesome. Cost me a fortune on eBay after Kaz suggested we all buy it. She is the WORST enabler.

HITS Grafite Night.

Cosmetic Arts, un-named and un-numbered. Bought in a blog sale, but if you find it anywhere, BUY's DIVINE and the color is so unique.


Chi Chi My Bad. So hard to capture but it's filled with flakies and glitter. This was a mini from Target.

Girly Bits CU Blue.

Rainbow Honey Mare of the Moon.

Pink Panther Gets Stormy

I promise I will get back into my stamping one day. When this obsession with glitter is finally over, I will pull out my plates once again!


Lush Lacquer's glitters are particularly yummy and aren't scrimpy on the glitter. One coat is all you need. This is Pink Panther over P2 Stormy, which is rather lovely on it's own.


On another note, what do you think with my new nail shape?

Hey Jude

I've worn this 3 times now and I am still not happy with the photos I have taken! This polish is so complex, it's hard to explain what colors it is let alone try and capture them on film.

Here is one coat of Enchanted Polish Hey Jude over black under artificial light. It looks the same with 3 coats on it's own, but I intend to 'skimp' on this polish so as to make it last longer!

But this blurry shot is the actual true color of the polish under artificial lights! 


These shots are in natural shaded light. You can see the color shifts easily here and the holographic shine has taken a back seat.

(Excuse the Nutella on the fingers, I was baking biscuits with Miss 4.)

I don't know how I like this polish a holographic or as a multi chrome.......but however it looks, it's unbelievably gorgeous and I love it more each time I wear it.
Make sure you manage to snag this from Llarowe or Harlow and Co next time it's up for sale.

The Worst Possible Thing

Two coats of The Worst Possible Thing by Rainbow Honey over Black.  Glitters really pop in natural sunlight, making them glow at their best.  Finished with Seche QD.

Girly Bits Shift Happens


This mani was a little work in progress in that I started off with Zoya Anja for a day then added Girly Bits Shift Happens for another day, then on the thrid day decided to stamp it with China Glaze 2030. Finished with Seche QD.

Sheaves of Wheat & Leopard Prints

I'm slowly getting into the whole mixing pattern thing.  And I think I kinda like it.
This dress was a steal on eBay.  It was listed several times and always passed in, then around the 4th time I saw it for sale I stuck a bid on it at the last minute almost hoping I got outbid.  I didn't.  So then I stressed about why it never got any bids and what was wrong with it?  
When it arrived I loved it.  It has a gorgeous little pointed half collar, DEEEEEEEEEEP pointed pockets on the front and rhinestone studded buttons! 
But of course, it was cold and I had to wear a cardi.  Even tho we are half a month into Spring.
50's dress: Ebay
Cardi: Best n Less
Shoes: eBay Hong Kong
Sunnies: ASOS
Belt: Op Shop

A Geisha, a Sumo, a Tiger & a Ballerina

So, we went to a costume party.  Of course we had to go all out. 
I even wore socks with my sandals.

Kid's facepaint does not make for a flawless white face base.

The Sexiest Man was a Sumo and I was his Geisha wife.  (Do Geisha's even get married???)

Our Hosts, the Flapper Trophy Wife and her Nerd Billionaire Husband.

Costume swapping.

The Art Of The Hot Rod

Castlemaine is THE Hot Rod centre of Australia. So naturally, my local library stocks some super cool books. I found The Art Of The Hotrod on the shelves last week and HAD to show you some FABulous cars that were inside.

I'll have one of everything.  Please.

Absolum Your Potions Master

I'm a tad obsessed with Crows Toes. I LOVE her thick, goopy formula with OOZINGS of glitter. You need one coat of any of her colors.  This is Absolum over black.  Doesn't it glow?

Finished with a coat of Seche QD.
