...And a happy New Year!

The year is coming to a close, so I wanted to post my Christmas nails at least before January. Basically a repeat of the previous snowflake theme, but in more traditionally Christmassy colours.

Have a fantastic 2013, everyone!

Though I care little for snow and cold, the aesthetic of snowflakes appeals to me. Infinitely complex works of art on a microscopic scale! What's not to be fascinated by?
Base minty green is a Hema polish; 82. They really ought to name them, so dull this way.
On the accent nail and thumb - tiny glitters are a Herôme polish, and the bigger ones are courtesy of Wild & More.
I had a lot of fun really using my nails as a canvas again!
For Christmas I'll probably do something similar, but in red and gold. I can't really help it, I've got a bit of a fever for painting snowflakes because of this!

Wouldn't Call It 'Magic'.

I haven't updated in a month, to the day! I'm extremely ashamed.
I have here one of Essence's  Colour and Change polishes.. called '01 Wonderlicious Green'. Looks pretty darn blue to me. I thought maybe the effect would bring out this allegedly wonderous green, but it did not. It remained, well, blue. Given to me by Sinterklaas, I thought I'd test it out with a few simple stripes. An effect I wouldn't particularly describe as "magic".
The base polish is extremely pigmented which I liked and has a nice, cool metallic look to it.
It's a cute polish, technically does what it says on the label, but wouldn't exactly call it 'top' innovation.
