Here is the fourth bottle of my Japanese nail polish stash that my wonderful friend brought back for me!
Canmake Nail Color Pink Glitter
How adorable is the little bottle!?! It holds 8ml of polish, this is shade number 34 and it’s called Pink Jelly!
Here is the English language version of the Canmake website.
Canmake Japanese Nail Polish Pink Glitter with flash
The formula for this polish is really nice, it has a huge amount of glitter that flowed from the brush really nicely. The glitter is a mixture of silver micro and circular silver holographic.
I applied two coats over base coat. The drying time was a bit longer than I would have liked, it was still a bit squishy after 15 minutes and the finish was a little bit grainy when it was dry, but a good fastdry topcoat would fix that!
The base colour looks so much darker with the flash… Luckily we had about 5 minutes of actual sunlight today!

This polish is definitely much prettier in ‘real’ light lol!

This is a really cute polish! I really love the glitter combination with the pink base colour 😀

Here’s week three of the GOT polish Challenge! Today the theme is Blue!
I have a lot of blue polishes so today I’m going to show you my favorite blue polish ever! This shade is called Bleu Cosmos from Bourjois and it was sadly discontinued a long time ago!
Bourjois Bleu Cosmos
It’s a lovely dark rich blue, almost black, jelly with huge amounts of blue, silver, purple and green iridescent glitter.
Bleu Cosmos Bottle
When was the last time you saw one of these bottles in a shop? Lol
This is three this coats over base coat, as I remember this polish tends to stain a bit. Even with no topcoat it’s still really glossy.
Unfortunately It had gone all thick and gooey so I had to thin it a bit before using it. but I have to say with how old it is, and how much I used it in the past, I’m surprised it wasn’t solid! 🙂
Look at the sparkles!
It’s so sparkly! I don’t think I’m ever going to find another bottle of this polish but I will keep looking! 😀
Have a look at the Pinterest Board with more amazing GOT Polish nails! 🙂

Flame Nail Art
Seeing as it is coming up to bonfire night, here are some fire inspired nails! I started with 3 coats of The Uptown from Color Club, which is a lovely purple jelly with Multi-chrome flakies! Then using Black on Black from Sinful Colors and a thin brush I painted on the flame pattern.

Halloween Blood And Flies
For this bloody look I started with base coat and a nude base colour I used nude from Barry M.
Starting with the darkest red which is Perfect Plum From Sally Hansen new lengths range, I dabbed it in patches over my nails, I used the same technique with Ravishing Dahling from China Glaze, so I had patches of dark red.
While it was still wet I added Double Decker Red from Rimmel London over the unpainted parts of the nail, then some patches of Elle’s Spell from Barielle Shades for some sparkle! Then While it was still wet I mixed it about a little with a dotting tool to give it a slightly marbled look.
This took ages to dry even with fast dry top coat! but when it eventually was I used the Halloween stamping plate from Messy Mansion for the flies with Konad SP in Black. I finished it with one last coat of fast dry top coat from Color Club.

Here is another first for me! Galaxy Nails! 😀
I used loads of nail polishes for this, I started with a base of Vamp Polish From Eyeko, then using a tiny bit of sponge I added a little bit of Blackened Bleu from Barielle shades and Alias from color club. Blackened Bleu is a lovely black jelly with dark blue and turquoise glitter, Alias is a dark blue jelly with purple duo-chrome glitter, it’s really pretty!
At this point it looked like a patchy gradient, after it had dried I added Gorgeous from sinfulcolors this polish is a bright turquoise metallic with a light gold sheen and secret agent from color club which is a light purple metallic polish. I put a drop of each polish next to each other onto an old plate and picked up both colours with my trusty bit of makeup sponge, and added a tiny bit to each nail.
when it was all dry I used Night Moves from Barielle shades for the stars, and the fine holo glitter is Sparkling silver from no.7
I finished it with a coat of fast dry topcoat from color club.

Here are six lovely polishes from Illamasqua!
This lovely Black has a wonderful satin finish, It is my favorite black polish! it dries in minutes and lasts for ages! I used one coat! with no base or top coat.
This is a lovely metallic dark purple, it’s almost a duo-chrome it’s so shimmery (almost but not quite) it has a very high gloss finish! This took two coats again with no base or top coat!
Apparently this polish is getting quite hard to find, I’m so glad managed picked this up when I did! This is a very dark blue jelly it’s almost black and incredibly high gloss, the formula for this is good but it does tend to drag if you are not really careful when applying it. This was 3 coats in daylight 2 coats would be fine but my camera was picking up every brush stroke
Illamasqua Faux Pas
This polish has a rubber finish, it is a lovely mid purple with a grey base for some reason it is looking more violet from my camera. This was two coats the formula is really lovely, no streaking or dragging and as with all Illamasqua polishes it dries really quickly!
This is a lovely metallic shade, it has so much shimmer that i would say its close to a foil! this was one thin coat with no base or top coats, I have found that this is a really good polish for stamping!
I absolutely love this colour! It’s a bright purple with silver shimmer and a satin finish, the formula flows really smoothly, it dries really fast and it lasts (on my nails) all week!
