Chanel Swatches!

Hallo! ๐Ÿ™‚

After my last post I realized that I haven’t shown my Chanel polishes nearly enough love lately, so here they are in all their glory! ๐Ÿ˜€

I have had these for quite a while so the bottles are looking a little on the “well loved” side… But if you are anything like me then that shouldn’t matter too much as it’s the scrummy insides that you want lol!

Chanel Black Satin

Black Satin

This is Black Satin, it’s probably the blackist black nail polish I own, this is two coats over base coat, but you could easily get away with one!

Chanel Black Satin 219

Black Satin

The formula is wonderful, creamy, self leveling and with the slightly longer bristles in the brush it really is one of the easiest black polishes to apply!

This intense red polish is called Dragon.

Dragon is a bright red cream, the formula is just as wonderful as Black Satin. This is also two coats, for some reason I completely forgot to wrap my tips Ooops!

Chanel Dragon 475

Dragon

This one is called Black Pearl.

Chanel Black Pearl

Black Pearl

It’s a shimmery dark silver grey, I find the formula for this polish to be a tiny bit thinner than the others, it wasn’t difficult to apply, just not as easy as the others.

I applied three coats, I really like the subtle iridescent shimmer in this polish, It makes the polish slightly different, and maybe a bit more special than all the other dark silver shimmers polishes out there!

This bright pink cream is called Splendeur.

This applied polish in one coat! the coverage is amazing! Splendeur is a fabulous pink, it’s almost a neon but still really glossy.

This is Paradoxical, it’s one of my favorites!

Chanel Paradoxical

This is a lovely warm grey with a purple iridescent shimmer. this took two coats to be opaque and dries really quickly!

Chanel Paradoxical 509

This is the classic Rouge Noir

Out of all of these polishes this was the most tricky to apply. The formula is slightly sheer/almost a jelly so this took three coats to be opaque, the colour is a lovely dark wine red and it’s incredibly glossy.

The last polish is Vendetta

Vendetta

This is a stunning dark purple, and the formula is amazing, it only took one coat and dried in about 60 seconds!

It was really difficult to capture the intense purple shimmer with my camera, it looks so much better in real life!

Chanel Vendetta 483

Vendetta

Vendetta, Paradoxical and Black Satin are definitely my favorites from my little collection of Chanel polishes!

I just have to keep telling myself to stay away from the Chanel counters when I’m out shopping just in case I “accidentally” buy all of them!

Ruby Wing Dotticure

Hi!

Today I have a Ruby Wing colour changing dotticure to show you!

Ruby Wing Crowd Surf

Ruby Wing Crowd Surf

I picked this bright pink one up in my local Sally’s and the shade is called Crowd Surf.

I applied two coats of Crowd Surf over my usual base coat, the formula for this polish is lovely and it dries really quickly which is always a bonus!

For the dots I used a medium dotting tool with Barry M Black, Orly Velvet Rope and Poke from Illamasqua.

Outside!

I really thought that it was only going to change colour a little bit. I was really surprised that it actually changes to much! I really like the dark purple shade!


Sparkly Striping Tape Nail Art!

Hi! ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I have a sparklyย mani I created using striping tape to show you.

Striping Tape Nail Art

Striping Tape Nail Art

for this I used

  • Rimmel Space Dust – Aurora
  • Filthy Gorgeous – Twilight
  • Striping Tape
  • Seche Vite

I began with two coats of Aurora, this is a really pretty polish! It is a slightly textured nude with loads of silver glitter, I added a thick coat of Seche Vite to even out the the texture to help stop the black polish from bleeding under the tape.

I used seven strips of tape for each nail, apart from my pinky which only needed six. Starting with my thumb nail I applied the tape, then carefully dabbed on the black polish, then using tweezers removed the tape while the polish was still wet. Then I applied another coat of Seche Vite over the top and continued with my other nails.

Rimmel Aurora and Filthy Gorgeous Twilight

I never realized how much easier a decent quality striping tape is to use! There was no curling up, sticking to itself or refusing to stick to my nail!ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

31DC2014 – Day 14 Flowers

Pink Roses

Pink Roses

My flowery nails for day 14! For a change I decided to stamp with white polish!

I started with a coat of China Glaze White On White, then I used the cling film technique to apply

  • Maybelline – Lilac Charm
  • Sally Hansen – Lavender Envy
  • China Glaze – Get Outta My Space
  • Sally Hansen – Good To Grape
  • Minnie Mouse – Pink

I ended up with really pretty pale pinky/purple sparkly nails that looked like marble!

For the stamping I used some more White On White with Pro collection 07 XL from Moyou.

GOT Polish Challenge – Pastel

GOT Polish Pastel

GOT Polish Pastel

Here are my Pastel nails for today’s GOT Polish Challenge!

GOT Polish Part 2

For this I decided to have a try at water spotted nails and it was surprisingly easy! ๐Ÿ˜€ The Polishes I used are Lathering Lilac which is another of the free ones (that I haven’t used) from Bizzybee and Pink Flamingo from Barry M

I started with two coats of Lathering Lilac, when that was dry I used Pink flamingo for the water spotting. I have to say it’s a really fun technique, loads easier than water marbling!

Then when that was dry I applied a coat of color club top coat, then a final coat of Matte Finisher from Elf

Green Braided Nails With Pink Rose Decals!

Braided Rose Nail Art

Braided Rose Nail Art

I decided that I wanted some pretty spring time nails! And here they are! ๐Ÿ˜€

I started by making the rose decals, for these I used

  • Sally Hansen – Grass Slipper
  • China Glaze – Near Dark
  • Rimmel – Double Decker Red
  • Sinful Colors – A Slice To Go (striper)
  • China Glaze – White On White
  • Color Club – Top Coat
Braided Rose Nail Art

Braided Rose Nail Art

I applied a coat of white on white over my base coat, for two reasons the first so that the greens would pop and the second being that green stains my nails more than any other colour!

For the braid I used

  • Zoya – Logan
  • China Glaze – Agro
  • L’oreal – Owl’s Night
  • China Glaze – White On White

After I finished my braided nails I ended up having to do some washing up (ugh) and the tips of my nails ended up with a few little chips ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Booo!

I applied my rose decals with a little bit of color club top coat, then sealed them in with another coat over the top.

I think the greens I chose where a little too dark but it still looks pretty ๐Ÿ™‚
