Primark Angelica

This duo was absolute chaos to get the proper colour to camera, it appears as a beautifully shimmery purple a lot lighter than I can get on camera but in a diferent light it's more a musky purple brown colour. The colours I used was Technic purple, a cheap 99p I picked up from a stall earlier this year and the Primark Angelica I've already posted about before used with a light blue, so you can see total different effects with the different bases. 

Pictures below:

Enjoy! x

Ludurana Marmorizado: Carraro

This is another polish I got in a swap, Ludurana Marmorizado: Carraro. This is my first Ludurana and it did not disappoint. This is such a pretty pale pink packed with fine darker pink and silver glitter. The glitter is not over powering and very subtle. It reminds me of strawberry milkshake. 
Application was a breeze, I have used 3 coats here and you can see there is still VNL so either another coat or a base underneath would solve that. 
I would definitely love to try more Ludurana polishes.

Enjoy! x

Had better be.. Hufflepuff!!

Yes todays is a polish by Daring Digits, wonderfully named Hufflepuff which of course a massive Harry Potter fan and a Hufflepuff I was bound to love it.

A beautiful golden yellow with small and large pieces of black glitter , hufflepuff has a smooth application. I have applied 2 coats but it could have done with an extra as you can see a slight VNL.

I just love this polish, it is both pretty and rockin' after all it is Hufflepuff ;)

Jade - Energy

Today I have a new to me brand :) I got this Jade holographic in a swap this Halloween, this one is Energy and it is a beautiful green and an amazing holo. 
Sadly no pictures under natural light as it was dark out when I took the pictures and we barely have any sun out anyways these days lol

Here are a couple under artificial light, drowns the colour out a bit but I have one below of the gorgeous green. 

Application was simple, this is 2 even coats for full opaqueness and I had no problems applying it.  

Away from light you can see the beautiful colour, I really do love green polish.

I hope to be able to grab some more of the Jades, they are lovely holos.

Enjoy! x
