Color Club - Covered In Diamonds

Today I received a box of special effect nail polishes that I am super excited to try and my first choice was Color Club's Covered in Diamonds! This shade is clear with iridescent rainbow flakies and works perfectly over dark colours in particular! I have paired this with Bk black nail polish. Only 1 coat of Covered In Diamonds was needed and then I applied RapiDry Top Coat by OPI. I found the flakies very hard to work with as they kept moving around the nail, but that didn't bother me too much because the final result is just unbelievable! Believe it yourself and take a look!

These photos don't even do justice to the amazing colour that is created when these two colours are combined! This is a definite must have for every nail polish lover out there!

Feel free to post a comment and leave your opinion on this colour!

Love Mel.

Color Club - The Lime Starts Here

I have to admit, when it comes to nail polish brands (besides OPI) i'm very skeptical! For a while I would only stick to OPI nail polishes so I decided  that it was time to broaden my horizons and first up is Color Club! This bright neon lime green is a beautiful colour. I did experience some difficulties on application as it was streaky but when it dried that soon went away. It has the most amazing smell for a nail polish! a subtle lime smell which is very sweet and a real surprise as I wasn't expecting it! I found the brush very thin which was hard to apply the polish evenly. I applied 5 coats but if a white nail polish was used underneath less coats would have been needed.

This photo shows The Lime Starts Here without a top coat
This photo has a matte top coat. I used Essie's Matte about you.

This photo is in direct sunlight and really emphasizes on how bright this green really is!

All in all, this nail polish is a great colour and an addition to my collection and i cannot wait to try this with a black shatter over the top!

Thanks for reading and feel free to comment on your opinion on this colour!

Love Mel :-)

I've recently come to the conclusion that buying nail polishes is just as rewarding as being a kid in a candy store, filling up your bag with your favourite goodies! You not only look at the enormous range of colours and brands that produce these little delights, but you imagine yourself coming home and trying them instantly. It is the little delights in life, that make it all that much better. I am aware that nail polishes cannot really equate to an addiction, but i'm sure most girls out there would beg to differ. It is here, on my new blog, that I will share with you, my love, for the little delights they call, Nail polish.
