Orly Sunglasses at Night is part of the Flash Glam FX collection. All of the polishes in this collection are really different, designed to be layered over the top of another polish. I think that they are quite similar to a lot of indie polishes which are out there.
Difficult to photograph, shown over ELF Black.
Sunglasses at Night is basically a holographic strand polish in a sheer grey base, perfect for layering over black. Was a bit of a pain to work with as any flitter type polish is, that was because the bits of glitter were extending past the end of the nail. Really like Orly polishes as the bottle has a rubberised lid which makes it so easy to open, and to keep it in your hand for perfect application.
For the nail art challenge B I was going to do beach balls, however when I saw these nails on The British Beauty Blogger Blog I had to try my hand at them. Marian Newman for Fred Butler SS2013, bee's with sharp stingers.
Nails are the same as clothes, if you look at any fashion show chances are no one is going to wear the outfits. Designers take bits from fashion shows and turn them in to something wearable, in this case the nails aren't wearable this is just a recreation of something from the catwalk.
Holographic polish, described as a dusky purple. I would describe it as a dusky mauve colour, the photos aren't all that colour accurate. The outdoor photos are better than the indoor ones although the shade is a few tones deeper. Holo wise the photos are accurate, not too much in your face especially indoors. Stunning in the sunlight!
I used two coats of the polish and its wonderfully pigmented, 3 free, not animal tested, great bottle shape, brush is standard. Amazing.
Also I really like my nail length in these photos!
I really a not too sure that summer 2012 actually happened here in England, certainly not where I am.
Summer technically did happen, perhaps I blinked and missed it! Anyhow now it is September and therefore summer is officially over in the northern hemisphere, time to whip out the browns, reds and other autumn / winter nail colours.
A small feather found on my sofa, no idea how or where it came from but ideal size to stick to my nail!
