Mucking About

Not the most brilliant of titles.  This is three coats of Butter London - Lady Muck.  It's pretty with a little shimmer. I put on a top coat of Jessica Diamonds which I found in on of my boxes.  I don't think I have ever used it, but it's quite good actually.

C texted me this morning, reminding me about OPI on Catch of the Day - and said that I should buy some. He's the best husband in the entire world!  I also read Kelz86's note. Peer pressure. I swear I wasn't going to buy anything.

I bought a few colours from the Nicky Minaj collection that I wanted, and although I'm sure I could have gotten them cheaper somewhere else, I'm lazy. Feeling a little like I'm a Lady Muck (say that a few times quickly).

Side note: I really like Nicky Minaj. I bought her CD.

Isn't it a pity that KBSHimmer on etsy doesn't ship overseas?

Butter London haul

As we live in the middle of nowhere, C and I are members of heaps of online shops such as Buyinvite, Grocery Run and Catch of the Day etc. Often they run nail polishes, and my inabler of a husband tells me that OPI will coming up again.

Recently I caught Butter London polishes, which arrived on Friday:

  • Artful Dodger 
  • Keeker
  • Victoriana
  • Fairy Lights
  • No More Waity, Katie
  • Lady Muck
 I also have another batch on their way as well.

  Pretty Random posted about a site, Ozsale, which I'm also going to have to check out!

Cat's Meow

When I was on the Gold Coast, during Xmas holidays, I found and fell in love with this cute Korean make-up store – that I was only ever allowed to go into once – and whenever I tried to sneak back there I found it shut.  It had heaps of Tony Moly stuff and other cute products – I could have gone nutso in there – but I didn’t. I just bought 2 bottles of Peripera polish and a no-name glitter with hearts in it.

I have to say, that I have used both the Periperas, and I pretty much love them.  They are really great to apply, quick to dry, fairly opaque within two applications.  That being said, this mani needed 3 coats basically because I wasn’t paying attention to what I was doing – I'm watching X Files at the moment – yep all of it.

But the thing I love the most is the bottle...

 I didn't realise that cats make such good backgrounds!

Base: Peripera – an orange (not named)
Glitter: LA Girls Glitter Addict – Uninhibited (most awesome polish which I rarely think to use)
Swish: OPI – Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous (what the?)

 My husband picked the colour scheme.

I have since decided to buy more Peripera polish – and more Korean make-up purely for its packaging!!!
