Omg! I can't believe I didn't add a heading!

Hey guys, sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've kinda had nothing to post. I'm really into glitter polishes (what a turn I've taken!) and glitter jelly sandwiches. And the polishes I have aren't really glittery in the way that I like. I have a lot of multichromatic glitter but no multi coloured and multi sized glitter polishes and it's bumming me out! So I spend like $50 at Beauty Joint on LA Girl, Milani and NYX glitters (I should have bought some Jordana glitter too, darn!) and they were all so RIDICULOUSLY CHEAP!!! Like $3-4 for a polish! I can't find polish that cheap in the shops here. So I am super keen for it to arrive next week! However, for now I have China Glaze Dorothy Who?

It is such a gorgeous blue. I really enjoyed wearing it.

Multichromatic Moons

This is my first attempt at half moons. I keep meaning to go into Office Works to get some hole punch reinforcements but I keep forgetting so I when I was in the news agency the other day I picked up some round stickers instead. They work just as well.

In shade.

 In sunlight.

I love this last photo because the semi circles have lined up! I used one coat of Cult Nails Nevermore and one coat of Ozotic 506.

Gaga Birthday Nails!

Hey guys, so sorry about the no posting. I'm trying not to do it so much since I have so many lovely ladies that comment on my blog every time I post something (thanks for that too!). So last Wednesday (the one before yesterday) I went and saw Lady Gaga! Greatest conecrt, greatest night. I was such a fan girl. When Gaga started, this was me. "OMG IT'S GAGA! OMG IT'S HER OMG IS SHE ON A REAL HORSE? OMG SHE IS SO CLOSE!" Giddly as a school girl. It was the most detailed, extravagant concert ever. And her voice... GUH! Her voice is incredible! She sung Edge of Glory acoustically and it was so magical! I just loved it!

Anyway my friend and I semi-dressed up. We tried but it didn't really work out. So made my nails to match!

 I started out with a base of Zoya Sooki and then added a coat of Ozotic 518. Then a coat of Sech Vite and free handed the leopard print with a striper brush. For the nude I used China Glaze TTYL and for the brown a mixed a polish from Oroton that I have called Bittersweet with Ozotic 509 to give it a bit of holographic edge. Not bad for the first time trying leopard print. Here's a few photos from Gaga.

The Most Wearable Silver Holo

By wearable I don't mean "Hey I'm going to wear this to my fluorescent lit conservative office work place".  No, I mean that this holo doesn't require any special base coat, it takes any topcoat without dulling and it barely chips! This is 3 coats Ozotic 509.

In overcast.

In sunlight.

I wore this for about two days, which I know doesn't seem like much but part of the reason I change my nails every day is because they chip really easily. These photo were taken on the second day and as you can see, barely any tip wear or chips! I'm glad I got this colour before it was discounted. I also have Nfu Oh 61 which is so vibrant but is so hard to work with and chips pretty much as soon as it dries.

Quick! Take a photo before the sun hides behind the clouds!

It was kind of a bad time for me to buy all the Ozotics I wanted. Which majority of them are holos. It's been really dull over the last couple of weeks, barely any sun.  So today, the sun has been hiding in and out of the clouds. And for this manicure it is a MUST for the sun. This my gray scale gradient holo manicure! Man I love gradient manicures.

In overcast.

I used a Base of Ozotic 590 and sponged on 59 with Layla Flash Black (which I don't think sponges well, I think the  holo turned a little scattered when sponged) and then Ozotic 526.

 In sunlight.

I think this a good way to wear holos in winter. Some holos look butt ugly without sunlight for direct light, but gradients always look good (if you do them right!).

My two favourite types of polish. Red and Holo. Oh my GAWD! This is Ozotic 518. This is part of Ozotic 500 series that is getting discontinued. Which sucks balls! But I'm happy because I've bought every polish that was on my wishlist!

It's just gorgeous. It looks a little metallic, which I don't love but who cares. RED HOLO!

ETA: I'm also going to the Gaga concrret a week from Wednesday (which is my b'day too) so I'm asking for ideas and inspiration as too what I should do my nails as!
