Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from me, everyone!
Not much to say, kind of a last minute effort. (Which I suppose is fairly obvious but humour me okay I have a life no I don't I'm lazy.)
Lovely orange, though, being Herôme W.I.C's '150 Zagora'.

Island Palm.

I have absolutely zilch when it comes to a pun for a title for this post, so the name of the polish it is going to have to be.
It being '170 - Island Palm', a Givenchy polish. And what a beautiful one at that! I think I can count this one among my favourites. A stunning and exotic metallic colour that shifts between the greens and blues of the spectrum.

Don't you love that bottle detail?

I think it's an amazingly bold colour that really jumps out at you, especially in the right light. It takes some a few coats to cover (I think this was at least 3), but for this polish I don't mind in the slightest. It's fantastic, a real eye-catcher.

I do think the summer months would do this one more justice, because in the drab weather of October it rarely gets the chance to show its full potential.

All that glitters is not gold.

Oh my god, I haven't updated in nearly a month!
It's been a case of boring manicures which often chipped before I got around to photographing them, or me being too busy to post or even do my nails (which are sadly the first to suffer when I have things to do).

So, without further ado, here's some admittedly boring pictures of Dior's '668 City of Gold', taken inside because there was no sun to be found at the time.

Border Nails.

I know, I should be (and am) ashamed for posting my nails in the state they're in. I was late in taking pictures, and at this point the manicure had already seen the best days of its short life.

Wanted to try border nails, a nail art trend I think can look either fantastic or horrible.
Sadly, my attempt did not fall in the 'fantastic' category.
When lining white (which is what it started off as) over Rimmel's '700 Block Your Green' I realised I had made the wrong choice, colour-wise. It just doesn't look good, and within a short period of time the white had absorbed some of the green and turned yellow. Experiment failed, sadly.

But on the bright side, Block Your Green is a pretty polish and I'm glad I bought it.
(I know, I know, I'm sorry!)

Just reminding you all the discount is still valid! Use it while you can!
