Is Copper Dreams a dupe for Gingerbread? No, but is similar. Gingerbread is straight up bronze with glass flecks, Copper Dreams is more copper in tone with a slight duochrome to red. Also Copper Dreams has more of a shimmer finish than Gingerbread which is more glass flecked.

TAG: Confessions of a Nail Polish Addict

I have done this TAG before however that was around two years ago and so thought it was time to update my answers.

1. What nail polish are you wearing on your nails (and toes) right now?
As I write this I have Leighton Denny Blueberry Blood with Hare Midsummers Midnight on top on my nails and Barry M Copper Mine on my toes.

 

2. What is one nail product you can't live without?
Leighton Denny Crystal Nail File - My answer hasn't changed on this, crystal nail files are really good. I really don't like my nails having any uneven edges, this files and shapes the nails but it has such a fine grit that it means putting on tights isn't a problem. No clicking of tights or catching on hair which is so annoying.


3. What is your favourite nail brand (mainstream and indie)?
Again my answers haven't changed on this one.

Mainstream - Barry M, I like the Gelly polishes, especially the new brush.
Indie - A England, it's easy to forget they are an indie brand because the whole operation is professional. I adore all of the gorgeous holos.

4. What shape nail do you wear (short or long)?
Since I last did this I changed my nail shape again to a more almond shape, this still lets me grow them long but helps my fingers look more feminine than sausage like, the rounded length I had previously looked slightly spoon like and I prefer the almond look on myself.


5. What is your go-to colour?
Same as last time, black or dark purple.

 

6. What is your favourite nail polish finish?
Holographic polishes are stunning.

7. What’s on your nail polish wishlist?
Mostly Barry M polishes!

8. When do you usually paint your nails (morning, afternoon or evening)?
Usually evening.

9. What’s your top nail tip you swear by?
Fast dry top coat - Glisten and Glow HK Girl.

10. What nail polish do you regret buying?
I don't think I regret buying any of them.

11. Neons or pastels? Brights or darks?
Neons over pastels which has changed since last time, and I still prefer dark colours over bright nail polishes. Dark and interesting polishes get more wear for me.


12. What is your holy grail white, black and nude polish?
White - Barry M - Cotton (Gelly)
Black - Barry M - Black Forest (Gelly)
Nude - Barry M - Lychee (Gelly)

  

13. What is one brand you want to try but haven’t yet?
Since I last did this I bought two Dark Metal Lacquer polishes! But I am yet to buy anything from Nubar.

Stamping Plate: Born Pretty Store BP-L056

Review-Stamping-Plate-Born-Pretty-Store-BP-L056-BPL-056-BPL056

This is a large rectangle stamping plate, hard plastic backed with 14 full nail images. Images are around two cm tall so ideal for longer nails.

Review-Stamping-Plate-Born-Pretty-Store-BP-L056-BPL-056-BPL056

The plate is winter themed and all of the images stamped across well. I got this stamping plate this past summer and am exited to use it this season.

You can see all of the nail art I have done using this stamping plate here, once I have used it.
