TIGGER THEMED NAILS!

Hi everybody! Tonight I am going to a 21st dress up party and the theme is CARTOON so I decided to go as my favourite character...TIGGER! YAY :-)

Of course, I had to plan my nails so I decided to do orange with black shatter and an accent nail with a tigger water decal! I think it's pretty cute..what do you think?

I used 2 coats of OPI's In My Back Pocket and 3 coats of White on White by Revlon for the accent nail, followed by OPI's Black Shatter and 2 tigger water decals I bought on ebay for about $1 :-)






Cutie cute cute!! Yay I love it :-D

Lay It On Me - Holographic Collection + Kleancolor - BLACK CHUNKY HOLO

Hi everybody!! Today I am happy because 2 good things happened!
1. I finally found whiskers for my tigger costume on the weekend (It sounds like it wouldn't be hard to find, oh but it was!)
2. I found a beauty trade supplies store (Glama co) that is 10 minutes away from me and sells very cool stuff like CHINA GLAZE and ORLY! I have only succeeded on finding OPI and Essie in stores so this is a big relief!

When I went shopping at Glama co I found this interesting brand of nail polishes called Lay It On Me. . .basically all these colours had 3 different colours in the bottle, stacked on top of each other like oil floating in water. I was really intrigued to give it a go so I bought one. Here are some swatches! The colour code says "Holographic Collection" - that caught me deffinitely!





 Eeeeekkkkk! I do not like this colour at all! I thought it would turn out really cool but I only slightly managed to get pink accents in the coats which is a pity :-(

I had to try and transform this vomit colour into something decent so I decided to layer Kleancolor - Chunky Holo Black over the top! Yay!!

Hallelujah! It made it much nicer! I actually really like how it turned out. a semi transparent (no VNL) cargo green with pink shimmer reflectives and then the gorgeous auburn and green hexagon pieces! I like it.

I am also trying a new top coat out by Orly called "Glosser" I like it so far! :-D






It has a bit more grey tone in this due to the chunky holo black's sheerness of two coats.
I really really like this combination. . it's really different to what I usually lean to!

I have a really cute TIGGER themed nail post coming! Stay tuned and ALSO don't forget to enter my giveaway here!
