What a bloody miserable Monday this is turning out to be!
Not sure where all my readers are based but in London it hasn’t stopped raining since I woke up this morning – as if Monday’s weren’t bad enough!
This weekend I was at the Beauty Show as described in my previous post. I had a really good time, the stands were brilliant and I spent a hefty amount of time at my beloved OPI! I will do a full post on the Beauty show tonight as I need to snap the bits I bought there etc... This will probably be up tomorrow so sit tight until then! Just to let you know they had the Skyfall collection available to BUY, so I nabbed myself a few - you'll see in the swatches below!
I have been meaning to do this post for a while now, so when I grabbed some new nail wheels at Olympia Beauty it was the perfect opportunity to add my most recent polishes to them and then post swatches of all the colours i’ve got. I often get asked how many polishes I actually own, if there is a colour I don’t have/like etc. The answer to that question is probably no! I have a rack in my room that is my pride and joy (saddo) and I also have boxes full of polishes that are either duplicates or won’t fit on the rack. Today I have swatched the rack polishes as these are my favourites – they are also sectioned into brands and are all the polishes I have from this brand. The spares in my boxes are other brands that I am not as keen on or don’t have room for etc.
As you can see from the rack, my favourite polish brands are Nails Inc, Models Own, W7, OPI and Essie. I also have a few randoms on the top shelf, one off polishes that are my favourites (such as Jo’mina by Illamasqua, Barry M, Seche Vite and a couple of 17 Magnetic polishes). I haven’t swatched the top rack, just the ones I have a decent amount of, but here’s a list of the top shelf colours - I haven’t written these down so this will all be done from memory... oops!
Random gold glitter from wholesalers // GOSH Silver Star // Illamasqua Jo’mina // Topshop Green Room // 17 Magnetized Gun Metal // 17 Magnetized Lilac // 17 Magnetized Teal // Seche Vite // Sephora for OPI Multi Glitter // Sephora for OPI Traffic Stopper Copper // Barry M Pink // Barry M Coral // Barry M Yellow // Barry M Orange // Barry M Raspberry // Barry M Chameleon in Purple // Barry M Grey // Barry M Pink Shatter // Barry M Black
I tried my hardest to show the true colours of each polish on the below nail wheels, but I had to take these pictures last night in my room in the dark when it was raining, so the lighting wasn’t the best – one of the problems of trying to snap nails in the winter when I spend most of the day light hours at work :(
I love looking at my nail wheels, I could literally sit on my bed and paint them all day. I would probably need about 10,000 for me to be able to paint all my favourite combinations. I think my favourite mix at the moment is OPI Lady in Black with Models Own Mirrorball Dancing Queen, the swatch of it is just UNREAL! I've attached a picture of that below just because I love it!
What do you think?
