Pumpkin Spice Latte, Now Available as a Nail Polish...

Seems like everyone's jumping on the PSL (pumpkin spice latte) bandwagon nowadays! 
Now you can get your hit of PSL on your nails! Color club just announced its Pumpkin Spice Latte scented polish, exclusively available online on their website! I grabbed this pic off their insta @colorclubnaillacquer. Will you be grabbing some? 

Personally I've never tried a PSL as coffee make me feel like death... But I bet it smells yummy :) also the colour is right on point with trends, featuring what looks like a neutral latte colour creme? Hard to say as the pic they provided totally has shopped fake nails... I kinda want one... I love my cinnamon scented color club polish...Someone buy me one? Please?

OPI Alkatraz Rocks - Liquid Sand

Today I'm sharing OPI Alkatraz Rocks. I think this is a great colour for fall. I used 2 coats of this OPI Liquid Sand with no top coat. 
I haven't used any of my "texture" polishes in a while. I'm really drawn to the deep colour and intense glitter of this one. It was hard to capture the colour and I think it comes off more blue than in real life. To be completely honest, I chose a sand because I dropped my top coat and had to clean it off the walls the other day...

I did get a lot of compliments on this colour at work. Maybe I should use my liquid sands more often. I don't tend to wear glitters unless it's a special occasion, but these sands are subtle enough for me to wear anytime.

Spotted at H&M! New Nail Polish Collection!

I spotted this at a Canadian H&M this weekend. A new sleek packaged make up line, including a whole collection of polishes priced at $6.99 each. I've heard great things from my European friends that have had awesome H&M polishes for a while now. I even spy a Chanel peridot dupe on the left side! I didn't pick any up because I was short on time, but I'll definitely stop by again to grab some. I asked the cashier about the new line and she said the make up was really pigmented! 

Have you tried the new H&M polishes yet? If so, let me know how the are! If not, will you go look for them?

One of my favourite "neutrals"

I've been busy with work and my jewellery later but I did find some time to paint my nails. Here's one of my favourite polishes, OPI Designer de Better from the 2011 OPI Holiday Muppets collection. I'm also holding a pink macaron from Cafe Joie! So yummy!
Designer de Better has a gorgeous silvery beige foil finish with specks of bronzey-orange. It is really unique, a very simple but gorgeous polish!


Unfortunately I've been away so long and didn't realize this colour is now HTF! (hard to find). It's upwards of $30 on eBay and Amazon... Luckily I got a back up the moment I fell in love with it. If you don't have it you're really missing out! Luckily I here there's a decent Sally Hansen dupe! Let me know if you know of Amy other dupes!

A Nail Polish Mess

Random thought of the day:

I definitely need to clean my nail polish stash, destash and organize... Do people still do blog sales? Is that still a thing?? Geez It's been over a year since I mailed out polish... But alas, I've been away from the bottles so long that I can't remember where they all go and I can't find a bunch of the ones I need for my jewellery! I had a mini panic attack when I couldn't find my Ozotic multichromes. I ended up finding them in the back of a drawer but I still think I'm missing a few!! Oh the woes of a previous polish addict...

Anybody want to take some nail polish off my hands? or come help me organize? Please? lol

In lieu of a nail post, I'll leave you with a cute dog picture!

To Polish or Not Jewellery

Hello! Is anyone still out there listening?

Sorry I've been so MIA. I've just been very busy with school and not being able to paint my nails while on practicum. I've decided to channel my polish addiction back into jewellery making and have revived my jewellery line. Enjoy!

NOPI ~ Be Awesome - Some awesome glitter placement looks bloggers have done!

The other day I was in Shoppers Drug Mart and stumbled upon this interesting NOPI glitter. Its called

Nicole by OPI ~ Be Awesome

This polish really is awesome. It has multicoloured diamond glitters in a clear base. I would have taken it home if it wasn't for the $10.99 price point.

Anyways, since I don't have a swatch to show you guys, I figured I'd highlight some amazing glitter placement designs that other bloggers have done using NOPI ~ Be Awesome. I've never done glitter placement myself, I don't think I have the patience!

These looks are all incredible! Click on the pictures to go check out their blogs and posts.

NOPI ~ On What Grounds?

Hello Everyone!

Today on the way home I stopped by Shoppers and found these interesting Limited Edition NOPI "Roughles" polishes. There were 4 spring textured colours. I decided to grab the teal: 

"NOPI ~ On What Grounds?"

I would have grabbed all 4 (yellow, pink, purple, teal) but they were $10.99 a pop =(

On What Grounds is a teal texture "Roughles"?? polish with darker teal and grey specks. It looks both bright and pastel depending on the lighting. 

The instructions tell you not to use a top coat. This is to allow the textured effect to show!

The finish starts of pretty rough, but as it wears it gets smoother. I would recommend not wearing delicate snagable fabrics while wearing these polishes.

So what do you think of it? I'm on the fence. I love the colour and I think it's definitely better than plain creme textured polishes, but I'm not sure if I'm sold. I asked my mom what she thought of it and she said it looks like concrete =( I think it somewhat resembles candy speckled eggs! 

I wore 2 coats of "On What Grounds" without a base coat and a week later it still looks perfect! It's just a bit sanded down and smoother now, but there were no chips and only slight tip wear which is expected.

I think I'd like to try a few of the other colours from this collection, if only they were cheaper! Well hopefully they go on sale lol...

Do you like this polish??

Can anyone tell me what "Roughles" means???
I get that it's a play on words of "rough" but "ruffles" still doesn't make sense to me for this polish... lol oh well

edit** I found a full display the other day so I snapped a pic. Here you can see the other colours =)
