50s Day Dress and Birds Of Paradise

Only 1 outfit photo today, Miss 11 took a horrid job of taking them and most had to be deleted. 
The trials of using your children for professional photography purposes....sigh.
This 50's day dress is a favourite as the color flatters my skintone and hair.  And the collar stands up.  Always a bonus.
The hair flower makes it first appearance today and is made by Uncle Fezter Flowers.  I buy my hair flowers exclusively through Steve now as I have learnt it's worth the few extra bucks to get an exceptionally well made piece of art.
No mascara! The HORROR!

Girly Bits Eggnogoholic


The second polish I won from Femme Fatale and Lacquerheads of Oz Giveaway.  This was 2 coats of Girly Bits Eggnogoholic.  I have a very soft spot for white polish and this one had perfect smooth formula and tiny gold glitter.  Stamped with Konad Warm Black on day 3 of wear and finished with a coat of Seche QD.

I won me a competition over at Lacquerheads Of Oz! And included is an unreleased shade from Femme Fatale Cosmetics! Yay for me!

Yummy Milky Strawberry Pink base with large and small glitters in Red, Pink and Purple shades.  This was 2 coats and no base coat is needed to acheive opacity.
I am unsure on the release date Sophie has for this baby, but please join up with an account to stay abreast of all good polishy news!  Thanks again Sophie and Lacquerheads girls for my great prize!

Gelicious Aztec Blue

Recently, Gelicious posted a Facebook offer on their page offering starter kits for 70% off RRP. Even tho I own a UV lamp, and several bottles of Gel polishes and base/top coats, I was interested in trying Gelicious so purchased a set for $64.50 with free postage. It came with a LED/UV lamp, Aztec Blue and a top coat.
This is 4 thin coats of Aztec Blue, each cured for 1 minute between coats, and finished with Gelicious top coat, cured for 2 minutes.
Even tho it still has visible nail line, I really love this color and was extremely happy wearing it until day 6 when this happened:
This is the first time a Gel brand has peeled ans snapped off so badly after only 6 days of wear.  As you can see, the rest of the fingers were perfect, without any tipwear.  I had nail art plans for this color when I reached a week of wear, so I was a little disappointed.  I could have repainted this finger and kept on going...but you know what us nail freaks are like, can't keep the same color on for too long anyway!
I'm eager to try the Gelicious black as I haven't yet had a good run finding a decent Gel black formula.  Anybody else have either of these colors and what do you think of Gelicious?

Enchanted Polish Magical Mystery Tour

Preciousssss!  Isn't this rather lovely?  Magical Mystery Tour is the easiest color shift polish I have in my collection.  I layered it over black for these photos, as it didn't get dark enough for my linking on it's own afer 3 coats.
All these photos are in shaded natural light, no flash.  Easy peasy color trying to coax it out in the sun for this baby!
And in full sunlight those holographic sparkles come into play with full on bling.
