Orly Smoke Collection

Hi Beauties

I hope your pleased with last nights ‘One lovely blog award’ nominations, they were very hard nominations to make.

This morning I was browsing tumblr and I came across a lovely polish by Orly that was from the ‘Smoky Collection’, so i wanted to give you my throughs on the collection as a whole.

The first is ‘Smoked Out’ the name is quite deceiving as it brings to mind a black or grey toned polish, but ‘Smoked Out’ Is something else altogether, it is the most stunning deep green I have ever seen, in my opinion it’s still second to Revlon’s ‘Rain Forest’ but it is still an amazing colour, the metallic micro glitters give it a very mysterious look, like something out of a fairy tale.

‘Highlight’ is a pale grey shade that is perfect for the ultimate nude manicure, but in other respects it is a very basic shade, one to be worn with jeans, a T-shirt and your converse.

‘Darkest Shadow’ is another stunning polish, it has a deep base with copper and red glitters running throughout it. This polish is definitely different, to me this is the perfect shade for bonfire night it reminds me of the blazing orange bonfire against the smoky black night sky, love it.

Orly’s ‘Brush It On’ is to me a shade that is perfect for Halloween, ‘Brush It On’ is the perfect fall burnt orange shade it has a stunning orange base with burnt orange and silver glitter within it. I did a post on burnt autunm oranges with this polish would fit perfectly into, it looks like I’ve found my go to orange polish for fall 2015.

‘Edgy’ is again a pretty polish that couldn’t be better suited to the colder months, it has beautiful bronze and silver glitters that sit so perfectly on a deep brown toned base, ‘Edgy’ is perfect for both autumn and winter and for some reason reminds me of a snow covered wood.

‘Blend’ is a brown based purple shade, again this is one that reminds me of bonfire night but this time of the morning after when fog hangs thick in the air and everything appears to be covered in a faint purple haze, this is such a basic polish yet it is beautiful in its own right.

Thanks for reading Beauties I hope you enjoyed this post, I know I enjoyed writing it the ‘Smoke Collection’ has to be one of my all time favourites from Orly, come back soon for more,

October Nails

Hi Beauties

Well it’s halloween and I’m smart here bored, so I thought I’d blog about the colours I’ve been wearing on my nails for the month of October, here goes…

The first is part of Maybelline’s Mini Colo Rama collection, and is called ‘Black Current Jelly, it’s a very pretty purple-y red shade and is opaque in one coat.

Revlon’s ‘Ginger Melon’ is a staple pink polish I find myself coming back to again and again, not only is it a very versatile colour but it smells amazing too.

When I first purchased ‘Tokyo Pearl’ from Sinful Colors I was not that impressed by it, it seemed sheer and streaky, but last week I had some time to build up three coats of ‘Tokyo Pearl’ and the results were stunning.

Another October purchase from Sinful Colors was ‘Lets Talk’ which is a purple based blue and looks absolutely beautiful on the nails, in the right light it flashes deep purple and memorising blues, it looks simply stunning.

My final polish for October is ‘Cayenne’ from Revlon, in the bottle it looks a lot more red than it does on the nail, so as you can imagine I was shocked when my manicure turned out a rather unexpected burnt orange shade, it’s not really a shade is go for, but never the less I leaned to love it anyway.

Thanks for reading Beauties I hoped you enjoyed this post, I can’t wait to write Novembers entry,

New Additions

Hi Beauties

I haven’t done a new additions post in quite some time, so it feels slightly strange to be doing one now. All of my new polishes are part of the Maybelline ‘Colo Rama’ collection, here goes…

‘Vibrant Fuchsia’ is a very pretty hot pink shade (although it looks more lilac on camera)

IMG_3466.JPG

‘Coral Rose’ is more of an orange based coral than a pink based one, I think I’ll wear this on halloween.

IMG_3469.JPG

‘Blackcurrent Jelly’ is a very deep plum based red which is perfect for when the snow comes.

IMG_3468.JPG

‘Wine Red’ is a rich red shade with a deep pink shimmer running through it, love this shade.

Does anyone know how many colours are in the ‘Colo Rama Mini’ collection and also where I can get more of these, if you do please comment below ūüôā

Halloween Nails: Vibrant Vampires

Hi Beauties

I’m bored and hungry at the moment, but at the same time I can’t wait for halloween, I started planning my outfit months ago. This year I’m going bak to Whitby for the goth weekend and I can’t wait, I’m super excited to dress up and see the Abby again, love it.

I thought I’d do the final post in my halloween themed nail art collection, this week it’s vampires, and I love them all.

Halloween Nails: Magnificent Mummies

Hi Beauties

I can’t stop yawning today, I don’t quite know why I’m so tired, maybe I’m just being lazy lol.

I was wondering around a shopping centre yesterday that had a halloween store, I thought I’d have a browse and that’s when I got the inspiration for this mummy nail art post. When I was a little kid I’d wrap myself in toilet paper and make my mummy costume that way, talk about a lack of creativity but I’m happy to say creativity is not something this nail art designs aren’t lacking.

I think these are all super cute, I love anything with goggly eyes and the fact that these are halloween themed nails make them ten times better, I can’t wait to try them.
