Essence : Special Effect Top Coat Circus Confetti

Hi guys ! Hope everyone is as glad as me that it's weekend ! This week was seriously way too long for my liking. Hopefully everyone has something fun planned. Tomorrow we have my little man's godmother's little one first birthday party . ♥

So today I'm showing you a Special Effect Top Coat from Essence. This nail polish is called Circus Confetti, and this baby is a glitter bomb ! There's multi coloured fine glitter and small multi coloured hexagon glitter in this fantastic polish. This glitter fantasy contains blue, purple , gold, orange and green glitter.

I layered one coat of Essence Special Effect Topcoat Circus Confetti over Tip Top French Manicure white in the photos below -


And since I know I got some requests last time to make the glitter polish matte, I have included some photos too. This is currently how I'm wearing this combo -


Isn't this just a fantastic combo ? I personally prefer this glitter bomb matte, makes the glitter pop so much more.

You can get the Essence Special Effect Top Coat from Deschem for R39,95 ♥

Avon : Daring

Hi guys ! Hope everyone had a great weekend, and hopefully a stunning stress free week ahead . ♥

Today I'm showing you guys another nail polish from Avon's Colortrend State of Mind Range. This one is a blue jelly called Daring .

First off , I have to say, I LOVE the brush on these nail polishes. This colour however did need some "undies" since it was very sheer. I used two coats of Tip Top Twilight underneath two coats of Avon Daring. I just love the silver glitter in this jelly-based colour. Looks like a calming ocean. It was however a little streaky , the top coat did help smooth it out a little.
The colour in the bottle close- up ♥
Isn't this just a fun light blue sparkling colour ?

Revlon : Charismatic

Hi guys ! It's finally weekend ! Thank goodness. Hope everyone has a fun weekend plan . I'm going shopping tomorrow, so looking forward to that.

Today I'm showing you guys another nail polish from Revlon, this one is called Charismatic. It's an orange / coral nail polish . I have to say, although I'm not fond of orange nail polishes, this one kind of grew on me, and I must admit I like it now.

The polish applied fantastically and smooth, no streakyness whatsoever . I used two coats of Revlon Charismatic in the photos below..


Isn't this just a bright summer colour ? Perfect for the warmer weather that's starting now.♥

Shoe Inspired Mani ♥

Hi guys ! Hope everyone is having a good week . I think my cold might finally start being on its way out, about time, sick and tired of being sick and tired. :)

Today I'm showing you guys my shoe inspired mani I did over the weekend for the Tip Top I luv Shoes inspired theme.

The colours I used :
French Manicure White, Black Forest , Cherries in The Snow and Boston Lights

I used my favourite pair of high heels, and although I might not wear them too often , they are still my favourite for the last 5 years .

My shoes that inspired this mani ♥
I have to say, I just loved the outcome on my design . On the statement nail, I kept the red bow nice and simple, but I love how it pops against the black and white stripes on the rest of the nails. ♥

Tip Top : Night Life Glitter Matte

Hi guys ! Hope everyone is having a great week so far . It looks like my cold is finally getting a little better.. Yeah !

I had a few email requests , asking how the Tip Top Night Life glitter looked matte... So I decided to show it on here as well ... I used one coat of Tip Top Nail Chic Matt-Nificent over the Night Life Glitter.

This is the same mani I posted about on Monday, just matte now :)

I have to say, the glitter looks fantastic like this.. Never thought of trying this out, but glad some of you requested it. :) The glitter looks intensified, as the matte doesn't dull the glitter particles. I think I might prefer glitter like this. ♥

Tip Top : Night Life Glitter

Hi guys ! Hope everyone had a relaxing weekend. Mine was okay, even though I was still as sick as can be. Note to myself - Never ever think litres and litres off orange juice will get you better quicker , it just doesn't work that way . It's a miracle I didn't turn orange..

So today I'm showing you guys another glitter polish from Tip Top. I have to say I just LOVE how these glitter polishes transforms an ordinary mani into something spectacular.I used one coat of Tip Top Night Life Glitter (a nice dark pink glitter ) over Tip Top Melting Marshmallow. Like any Tip Top polish, the glitter applied easily, and smoothly. It's a nice dense glitter too . ♥
I just love this combo ! Hope you guys like it just as much. This was a limited edition colour, so if you see one in a Clicks and want it, I'd recommend you buy it now ! Before its all sold out.
