Takko Lacquer Absinthe


Absinthe by Takko Lacquer is a unique bright yellow-green polish with fine gold sparkle. It's quite cool except for the fact that it stains a little. My nails just had an overall yellow tinge to them after I removed the polish. It went away in a few days.


I really love neon or bright green polishes. I think they're really fun. And definitely summery! The gold sparkle is not a pairing I would have really thought of, I love that!


You can buy Takko Lacquer here but looks like thispolish is sold out right now. Keep an eye out for it around the nets.

Bear Pawlish Ultra Violet


Ultra Violet by Bear Pawlish is an insanely holographic, super bright blue-toned purple. Probably one of my favourite polishes at the moment. I can't quite get enough. 

The holo is still strong even when you aren't in direct sunlight. Nothing worse than a holographic polish that looks grey when not in the light. I'll definitely be pulling this one out in the summer, though. How can I resist?


I have applied two coats plus top coat. Beautiful formula and finish. Easy to apply and no problems with staining (I do have a layer of Essie's base coat on), even with this rich colour.

You can buy Bear Pawlish here (but right now it looks like the site is down).

Springtime Nails featuring Zoya and Cult Nails



I hope everyone had a nice holiday weekend, or regular weekend if you weren't celebrating anything!


Don't these Spring-y nail colours just make you smile! All of the polishes have shimmer and/or sparkle, which adds to the whimsy of these nails. 


Starting with my pinky nail and working my way the polishes I used are as follows: Zoya - Daisy, Cult Nails -  Thrive, Zoya - Rayne, and Zoya - Leslie. I don't have any photos where my thumb nail is visible but I'm wearing Zoya Dot with That Boy is a P-I-G Pig by Crows Toes over top. 

The Zoya colours are all new releases from The Delight Collection for Spring 2015 so, keep an eye out for those beauts and get 'em while you can!

Love these colours and what they signify - SPRING! They all applied very well and have great staying power with Duri Top Coat. 

Some Spring-y tunes for ya ;)

Elevation Polish - Pic de Subenuix


These pictures were snapped the night before our grandmother had a stroke. Needless to say, it's kinda weird looking at them. But this polish is so pretty it makes it easier?


I love turquoise and purple and it's so cool to have them together in one polish! Polish magic in a bottle! Sometimes the shift in a duochrome is too slight for my liking but the shift is nice and strong in Pic de Subenuix.


So beautiful!!

You can buy Elevation Polish here and looks like it's still in stock! Yay!

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer - Untrodden SnowI


Hellooooooooo! Remember us?! It's been a while, we know! Life has been busy but that's no excuse because it always busy, amirite?


Today the weather actually seems quite Spring-like but I know there are many people still stuck in the snow so, this polish isn't totally inappropriate. Plus, I'm not even sure we're out of the woods just yet!


I absolutely love white polish, especially on short nails. It looks chic and fresh. The blue shimmer in this polish makes it a stand out in the white nail polish category. I found this polish was a little thick to apply but adding a drop or two of nail polish thinner fixes things up. Untrodden Snow was going strong after a week (topped with top-coat of course!) so, I was impressed. Love it!

You can buy Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer here but, unfortunately, Untrodden Snow is not available right now but maybe that's a good thing? Spring and Summer collections await!
