So much to my avail I can't get ahold of Eyeko's cosmic polish -.-
Today I created my own alternative

Without flash

And again,

With flash
I used Rimmel 809, Blue Me Away, With 17 Nail Xtras as a topcoat. 
The random gems are from the poundstore, there's literally nothing they don't sell! 

This is a pretty messy one I must admit, I was going for a brown leopard print before, but it just wasn't working -.-

Green Envy

So yesterday I was scouring Boots when I came across the sale shelf/bin, I've gotta be honest, never seen so many lipsticks and glosses in my life, all reduced to crazzzzy prices. I nearly bought a red lippy but it didn't have a sticker :( and it being lunch hour I didn't wanna risk being late.
I did however snap up this polish!
Models Own - Evergreen, I've teamed it with  Revlon's Matte Emerald City, for a more interesting look.

With flash 
These photos don't show it well, but Evergreen is a goregous shimmer green, and Emerald City is super smooth and has a slight shimmer to it as well. 
I was really impressed with Emerald City as I got even coverage in one coat! 
Evergreen was only 2 coats, I thought I might have to do three as it comes out quite thin but it definitely builds up well!

However I did get a bit of bubbling which I'm pretty sure is my fault for being impaitent with my nails :P

So my lovely boyfriend bought me a bunch of nail varnishes for valentines day, Inc Eyeko vamp polish!
Here's one of the polishes in action,

GOSH Holographic
(With flash)
(Without flash, half shade)

This is a pretty hard polish to photograph, but basically, you know the disney logos on dvds are all sparkly? yes? , No? either way it looks quite like that :)
I did find when i was applying it that it is quite hard to get even, i've never used GOSH products before so I don't  know if this is something that runs through or if it's just holographic.
I also now have 'Nero' which is basically black so i guess i'll find out!

Double whammy

For some reason I did my nails twice today as i didn't seem to like the first time around,

The picture doesn't show it well, but this was two different shades of lilac, Barry M (Berry Ice Cream) And Rimmel 60 sec (650 Magnetise)

I also tried out these nail  gem things i bought from the poundshop, decided I can't get on with them, but maybe another day they'll work, either way not bad for a pound.
This was swiftly replaced with 

Barry M (297 Blue Glitter) ~No topcoat
I really like how this looks actually like you've dunked your hands in glitter 
It is quite rough on it's own though but unlike some it was opaque in 2 coats which is pretty rare for a glitter.
