Holographic Matte Dotticure

Ohhh I'm really excited about today's design! Not only does it look really cool with the matte effect and holographic dots, but this is also my first successful attempt at a flawless and perfectly even polkadot pattern! After the success of my singular dottified nail in the last skittle mani I posted, I was feeling brave and went for a full dotticure, and I am glad to say that I finally feel like I have mastered the dotting tool! Fuck yeeeaaahh! 

So without further ado, let's see my first perfect dotticure!

And just so you can appreciate the holo-y goodness of the polkadots, here's a close up!

To do this mani I started with a simple black creme polish for the base, and mattified it using my awesome Mode matte top coat. To do the polkadots I used a large sized dotting tool with Nfu-Oh 61, a bright silver holographic polish which already has an almost matte finish all of it's own and tied in perfectly with the base.

So what do you think? Have I finally nailed the dotticure?! (pun totes intended haha)

My First Skittle Mani!

Though this is a post I prepared months ago and have dragged out of the vault whilst I am busy getting life organised in Italy, I'm hitting a first with today's mani, my first (and so far only!) skittle! I don't actually know why I haven't done a skittle mani before, I guess it just never appealed to me more than all the other stuff I wanted to do, but then I got these 2 polishes that were sent to me for review (I already showed you swatches of them late last year so they may be familiar!) and they were just such great colours together they actually inspired me to do a skittle for the first time!

So the polishes I used were as follows: Mint Green = Mode 'Cool As'. Lavender = Mode 'Gorg'. Holographic glitter is Nfu - Oh GS07.

Despite many previous dodgy and wonky dotticure attempts I managed to do a nice even polkadot pattern  on the index finger. On the ring finger I used masking tape cut into chevron shapes and painted over it, and for the little finger I used a fine striping brush. Of course I had to have a glitter finger too to give it some sparkle!

I'm actually quite pleased with my skittle mani, it was more fun than I imagined it to be, and it was actually quite simple and not very time consuming, you've gotta love those designs that have high impact with minimum effort!

Carneval Nails - What I should have worn!

I'm back today with the last of my carneval themed mani's, and today's design was inspired by the 'costume' of Brazil's 'Miss Carneval' Pageant winner. I say 'costume' in parenthesis because it's actually just body paint! Brazilians don't have any problems with plenty of lady flesh on TV!

Basically the pageant was held by the leading TV channel in Brazil who went on to do full coverage of the parades in Rio, and Miss Carneval's role was to do a cute little samba dance to the opening and closing credits of the show, and they also super imposed her in giant size onto the parade runway to introduce the next samba school of costume clad people! The channel is called Globo, and the word for beauty in portuguese is 'beleza', so her title is the 'Globeleza!'

Though her body painting was rather daring and didn't leave much to the imagination, it was rather amazing and done in glitter gradients up her legs, take a look at the picture and see how fab it is!

I decided to do a stripes and spots design with glitter polishes, but it turned out I didn't actually have that many on me, when I left Australia I posted the majority of my polish collection to my mum in the UK so I wouldn't have to travel to Brazil and then Italy with it all, and so I didn't really have a good selection of glitter colours to be able to blend them and do a gradient, but I'm still happy with what I came up with and it looks really fun!

I chose to replicate the glitter paint on naked skin effect by using a nude base.The base is a Brazilian brand which I borrowed from my mother in laws stash, the brand name is 'Risque' (I didn't buy any of their polishes in the end because they have a very basic colour range and I was looking for special effects and glitters mostly) the polish is 'Meia Calza' which my husband tells me means 'stockings'.

The glitter polishes I used were from my Brazilian Cora milky way collection, and one Hits Specialita' glitter, all of which have been swatched for you just a couple of posts ago. ;)

So here is my mani!

As you can see I wasn't exactly spoiled for choice on glitter colours and I would have had a hard time getting a good gradient by combining these colours, but I think that once I get my full collection of polish back I'll give it another go with gradient stripes. I am rather impressed by my dots, I have really struggled in the past to get a nice unifrom effect with my dots all the same size, I think I pulled it off really nicely this time!

As I'm currently nursing two teabag repairs on my blogging hand, the next few designs you will see on the blog will be past designs from the vault that I have still yet to show you!

Carneval Nails - What I could have worn!

I have another carneval inspired mani today (I'm playing catch up for those of you that are wondering why I'm so late!) and today's is a pretty glitter placement design that I would have loved to have worn if I had actually had the time to do something this complicated!

I took my inspiration from my location for this one, and choose the colours green, yellow and blue from the Brazilian flag! I didn't take a pic in full sun as it was too harsh on the glitter and you couldn't make out the colours of the glitter properly for the reflections, so have a couple of different shade set ups because I couldn't decide which one was best!

The index finger is a little extract from the brazilian flag, and the middle finger represents the parade where the different samba schools who march have their own color theme, resultings in large coloured blocks of people that make the parade look stripy from above! The ring finger is a part of a flower as the costumes are covered in millions of them, and the little finger, not being able to fit much on there, represents the special stadiums in which the brazilian carneval parades takes place, it's kind of like a gigantic concrete models runway with bandstands on either side, called a Sambodromo!
I placed the glitter over a base of Ludurana 'Ouro Puro' (pure Gold)

I did the index finger first and I was super impressed with my very careful and neat glitter placement, after that I'm not sure what happened, It all got a bit higgeldy piggeldy! It looked awesome though! I just wish I had had the time over carneval weekend to do these nails for my partying, I'm sure it would have gotten lots of compliments from the Brasileiros!

Carneval Nails - What I Wore

Hello Lovelies!

Been out of touch again for a month as I made my move from Brazil to Italy, but now I'm here and things are settling so I can get back to it! 

As some of you my know I got to spend carneval in the best place for it - Brazil! But as soon as carneval was over I had to crack on with packing my stuff and getting prepared for the big move here to Italy, so I didn't have time to work on some carneval inspired nails, which lets face it, due to my location at the time was an absolute must!

So all be it late (as has been the case more often than not in these last few months of world travel!) I decided to do some carneval nails anyway, I only managed to get a couple done which I will show you during this week, for today I'm going to show you the nails I actually wore to attend carneval, as even though I didn't get time to do any blog stuff, I did at least manage to snap a couple of pics of my nails before I headed off for a wild weekend of partying Brazilian style!

The mani I wore is a simple glitter gradient, it was a pretty intense weekend and I just didn't have the time to do something elaborate, so being forced to keep it simple I went for a super bright colour and glitter! What more do you need for carneval anyway!?

The base is Australian brand Mode ' Love Me' with Cherimoya 'Electric Heaven' Mylar Glitter topper in a gradient. I love this colour and this glitter together!

Here are two pictures that I took in direct sunlight and in shade.

This week I will post a couple of manis a bit more elaborate, with designs that I might have worn had I had the time to do them!! One is a glitter placement mani which took me hours! and the last is inspired by a 'costume' worn by a lady who won Brazils 'Miss Carneval' Beauty pageant!

Stay tuned!

Ludurana Duo Chromes 'Violet - Blue' 
This was my favourite Ludurana Duo Chrome, and it's versatile as it can be worn on it's own and over black for 2 different looks! I don't know anyone anywhere who doesn't wish they had a Ludurana in their collection!


Hits Specialita' World Glitters Collection!

This is Ibiza, dark orange - red jelly base with small holographic magenta dots, and medium hexes in holographic magenta and gold.

This is 'Roma' Pale pink jelly base with small holographic magenta micro dots, 
medium holographic hexes in blue, purple and gold, and medium and large hexes in matte white.

This Sampa collection is inspired by Sao Paulo and named after its
This is 'Ibirapuera'
I mentioned in my blog post that this kind of green was impossible to capture on a camera, and impossible to colour match in photoshop, it had to be seen with your eyes to know the true colour, so how I could I not include it!

This polish also from the Sampa collection is called 'Garoa'. Both this and the previous green colour are crellys layered over a white base in my pictures.

These next 2 are from the Via Lactea collection and this one is called 'UV' - a dark antique rose with ultra fine gold glitter that builds up coat by coat into a fleck like effect.

This is called 'Radius' and is a bright teal blue with ultra fine gold and green glitter that builds up coat by coat into a fleck like effect. These are my favourite Cora's ever!

I have purchased these polishes and will pay for the shipping out of my own pocket (and I haven't worked for 6 months!), so if your prize does not arrive then WE BOTH loose, please be respectful of that!

Brazilian Polish Swatchathon - Ludurana Supernovas

My god ladies do I have some beauties to show you today! I mentioned in yesterday's post that the 'Aurora Boreal' collection was at the top of my wish list, but that's only because I didn't know that this collection had been released since then! (Aurora would still take a very close second place though!)

This is the Supernova collection, and they are multichrome holo's! My favourite things all in one ohhh lordy! I told you I alway saved the best til last! ;)

 They are 'multichromes' but seem to have 3 main colours, with only 2 colours at a time being seen in different lighting situations. They have a strong holo flare in full sun though this does diminish the multichrome effect quite a lot. Unlike other multichromes the colours do not show up with underwater photography, and layering these over a black base does not help at all, it actually does the opposite of what you would expect and almost cancels the multichrome effect completely, but you do get a different and interesting darker shade of the dominant colour within the polish, and the holo effect is much stronger over black too. I have found that the best lighting in which to appreciate both the multichrome and the holo effect at the same time, is with the harsh white strip lights or with very bright white day time bulbs, but to be honest you get lots of different effects in all kinds of different lighting. I have been wearing a couple of them over the last week and have seen them in sun, in shade, in a dark garage, under storm clouds, sat outside smoking a cig under a dingy light at night... you name it.. and in every lighting situation the polishes look completely different, anyone who owns these will just not be able to take there eyes off their nails when wearing them! There were so many shades and combinations of colours to these polishes that it was just impossible to get photos of every possibility, and with multichromes and holos being a bitch to get good photo's of at the best of times, you can imagine how hard it was with the two effects combined! While looking at the pictures just remember - however lovely you think these polishes are in my pictures, they are a 100 times more awesome in real life!

I managed to get 3 from this collection and I <3 them all, but as usual I always have my favourites!
Let's start with 'Orion' who's shifty colours are navy blue to blurple to pink with a good holo flare.
Here I am wearing 3 coats without a black base, and this first pic was taken in full sun.

As I said the multichrome was difficult to catch in full sun, though in my pics done in the shade it doesn't look much better either, it is much more visibile in real life. In the shade you get a much more pastel version of the colours. You don't see much blue and the blurple looks much more like lavender with hints of pink.

This next picture was taken indoors under the bright white lights I mentioned before, as I was not using a lightbox set up the picture is not the best quality and not very sharp, but that's the sacrifice I had to make to capture the colour shift better under the harsh white light.

 In this last pic the polish is 2 coats layered over a black base, the multchrome is pretty much gone, but you get a nice navy holo out of it!

The next polish I have in this collection is called 'Onda De Luz' (Light Wave) and shifts from very pale mellow yellow gold to peach to pale rose pink, it is totally lush, but the worst of the 3 polishes to take pictures of! Again here I am wearing 3 coats without black base, this first pic taken in full sun.

Here it shows up as a really warm and rich nude colour, but in the shade it's much more mellow with the gold tones more visible. Though the rose colour is not really visible per se, it does give the whole polish a slight pink glow to it.

Here is the pic that I took under the harsh white lighting, there is a more warmer richer gold tone under this light with the pink shift being much more visible.

Though I would not say that the pink was the dominant colour in this shifter, thats what you got when layered over a black base.

The final polish of my Brazilian polish haul and swatchathon, and probably my favourite of them all is 'Fenomeno' and shifts from a light powder blue to aqua green to violet. This has the most obvious colour shift of all them and looks fricking amazing in harsh white light! Here it is in full sun first where the light blue and violet (which looks more lavender here) are the most obvious colours.

In the shade the aqua green is much more obvious and the violet looks more like mauve.

 I want to show you the polish layered over black before I show you it on it's own in white light, cos it's damn glorious and totally the right pic to end my 3 week swatchathon, so here it is over black first and in full sun.

And now you can see the polish on it's own in harsh white light, you should probably grab a towel or something because you're undoubtedly going to drool all over yourself just at the sight of it. This is why Fenomeno is my favourite polish of the whole haul....

Isn't is just fu*king glorious! I want to paint my whole body like this, I want clothes bags and shoes like this, I wanna glow and sparkle in pretty girly colours like a frickin holographic unicorn! And I aint even the girly, frilly bows and unicorns kinda gal! How could anyone not fall in love with that? Seriously, try to tell me you don't love it and I must insist that you are not really a polish addict! I dare you to not like it dammit!

The formula on this polishes was wonderful, a wee bit sheer but still opaque in 3 coats, smooth glossy finish and quite long wearing too. These polishes have been out for a while as far as I'm aware, and I don't know of any comercial brands that have started doing multichrome holo's yet, Indie makers have only just been doing them since the beginning of this year, but Ludurana did it first so in my book that makes Ludrana an official trend setter!

I have loved swatching my brazilian haul for you, many of those pollishes I bought remained untried, so I'm really pleased I got to wear them all and see them and appreciate them properly, and that you came along with me for the ride!
It's got to be said that the Brazilian polish addicts are very lucky and have got some seriously amazing polishes going on here. Normally I would be totes jealous but I'm actually really happy for the Brazilian ladies.

The poor people here get ripped off by their government at every turn who pretty much tax everything except the air you breath, and at ridiculous rates. People are starving here, continually drowning in floods because the infrastructure sucks balls, constantly getting robbed cos everyones just so damn short of everything, and all while the government pile millions into stadiums for football and the olympics - events which are going to break the people here, because while those events are going on the price of EVERYTHING will triple. People can't afford food as it is and I fear for what will happen to the Brazilian people when these events start. The saddest bit is that the tourist dollars won't even end up in their pockets, just in the governments via the enormous tax rates that business owners will be subject to while these events are taking place. It's just fucking tragic, it really is.
So if Brazilian gals can't afford our foreign brands now while they are set at the standard of 100% tax upon entering the country, imagine how much the poor loves are gonna end up paying during event time, even just for a normal drugstore brand like Sinful Colours or something,  it sickens me to think. You can forget about OPI in this country, cost of a bottle of that stuff will feed your entire family for a week here, and so amazing polishes like that remain but a distant dream for the loveley Brasileiras!
For that reason I am really really happy that the homegrown brands here in Brazil are really making an effort not just to keep up with the nail trends, but to set a few of them too, and provide some of the nail addicts here the awesome polish they deserve. I hope they keep it up, and give the rest of us a reason to envy the ladies here!

Tomorrow I will be posting my giveaway, so makesure you come back to check out the prizes and enter!

I still have a couple of weeks left before I leave Brazil, and like a good girl I've done most of my preparations to leave, so after Carnaval I'm really hoping to have some free time to do some nail art as I haven't done any in months! Even if I don't get the chance, I still have a few designs that I did last october, to keep you entertained until I get to Italy at least! Thanks for reading me during my swatchathon, I'll see you tomorrow for giveaway time :)

Brazilian Polish Swatches - Ludurana and Bonus Brand Mohda Flakies!

So I'm back with more gorgeous polishes for you (and these are truly gorgeous!) but I confess I told a little lie! I said this was Ludurana week because I completely forgot that I have another brand of flakies to show you! I had been saving them until now because I really wanted to show you one of them with one of the Ludurana polishes I will show you today, but I forgot all about it until I found the photos again last night, so today you get an unexpected bonus brand! Yay!

So I'm going to start with the Luduranas, this first one I found in a sale bin, and I almost didn't buy it until I actually opened the bottle. It's called 'Rubra' (Ruby!) and on the bottle it said was a creme polish, but I was confused because in the bottle it looked black not red, and I thought there must be some kind of mistake so out of pure curiosity I opened the bottle, and I'm sure as hell glad I did! What I discovered inside was not a creme polish, but an absolutely stunning deep blood red jelly! It reminded me of the fake gel blood you can buy at halloween, and it went straight in my shopping basket!

It's a very darkly tinted jelly and I managed to get full opacity in 4 coats which I was very pleased about, I absolute ADORE the colour, but what I love the most about this polish is the finish, it's the glossiest shiniest polish I have ever seen, it reflects the light like pure glass! It is so shiny that I dared not even touch it for hours because it just appeared to be wet and I couldn't be sure if it had even dried or not! I have never seen a top coat that can achieve this kind of mega gloss! Top coat would just ruin it!

I also took pictures of this polish in the shade where the reflective surface was even more apparent, but in the end I chose not to show them, because in that perfectly reflective surface on each single nail was a crystal clear image of my face! I looked a right mess too, shitty hair no makeup and pyjamas! lol! So as I also work as a model I have a reputation that does not permit me to circulate photos of myself looking anything less than FABULOUS! hahahahaha.

On to the next polish, and this one is from the collection that was on the very top of my wishlist! The absolutely incredible 'Aurora Boreal' multichrome collection! Unfortunately I was only able to find this one, it turns out the Brazilian girls don't like this particular colour much and I found it on sale everywhere, but only this colour! The only place I ever saw the rest of the collection was on the stall that I posted a pic of on last fridays's post, but they were really expensive, even if I had known that I would never see that stall again I still don't think I would have bought them. To give you an idea of how expensive, the average polish here retails for 4 Brazilian Reals, the average Ludurana polish retails at around 8 Reals, but the Aurora Boreal collection on this stall were a whopping 20 Reals each! I was with my mother in law too and I think she may have fainted had she witnessed me spending so much for one polish, especially in a country where saying that money is 'tight' would be a massive understatement! I have since found a Brazilian website that still has the whole collection for sale, and to be honest, I think once I get back to Europe and start earning again, I'm going to purchase the full collection (at a nice price cos the conversion from euro to real is awesome!) and have it delivered to my mother in laws house to keep until I visit next! It will be difficult to live until next January knowing that they are sitting there waiting for me, but at least they will be mine!!!

Anyways, the polish! This one is called 'Espetacular' (can you figure it out?!) and is a multichrome wihich shows gold, copper, red, green and even a hint of blue at extreme angles.Personally I thought it was lovely and couldn't understand why it was the only colour that had not been sold out like the others. Being a multichrome I took a shit ton of photographs in different lighting and stuff, these first 2 were taken in full sun where the colours come up quite dark and metallic.

Tilted at an angle you can start to see the green coming through, but in full sun you can really only see this red, orangey copper and green.

These next pics were taken in the shade and the colours are much lighter with a lot more of the gold tones coming through.

Of course, to do a multichrome polish any real justice with photography, I had to dunk my hand in some water and catch ALL the magic colours. We had just had a lot of rain so it was too cold to get in the pool, I had to settle for lying on the floor next to it and dangling my hand in there to get the pics, but the family actually had work men at the house wondering around and fixing stuff, I swatched a few multichromes in the pool that day, and I'm sure they thought I was quite mad lying on the floor every half hour and dunking my hand in the pool to take pics, I was getting some very strange looks, but screw em', they wouldn't understand even if I had explained!

Look at all those amazing colours! I love how the red becomes so dark and deep but still goes through the whole colour shift all the way to the blue! I apologise for the reflections on the water surface, I didn't realise they were there until days later when I went to sort the pics, and I had already travelled to my husband's home city by then, didn't have the polish with me or access to a pool to re-do the photos! Here's one more pic that captured the blue just perfectly!

What I loved most about this polish is that I didn't need to mess around with a black base first, I did swatch a finger over black just to check, but the polish is so highly pigmented it made absolutely no difference, the formua is fantastic, the only polish I ever wore here that was flawless in 2 coats, and it has a really glossy finish too which is unusual for metallic type polishes, have another look at the pics taken in the shade and see how glossy it is, no top coat!

 Now for the flakies! This first one I wanted to show you with the Ludurana polish I just showed you, because it's a colour shifting flaky with exactly the same colour range, and turns a magic polish into a mind blowing one! The brand is called is 'Mohda' and the collction is 'Flocado Estilo' (Flaked style). This particular polish is called 'Techno' and had an amazing formula for a flaky, it's densly packed with flakes and you get a lot of coverage in just two coats, and it dries perfectly smooth, if you run your finger over it (when it's dry!) you wouldn't even know that there were any flakies in there!
This first pic was taken in full sun, which didn't show much of a colour shift in the flakies, but they gave the Ludurana a stunning sparkle and helped to bring out more of the Luduranas gold tones which without the flaky were not very visible in full sun.

This next pic was taken in the shade and the green and copper tones of the flaky are much more obvious, and combined with the colour shift of the base polish just looks frickin' awesome!

And of course, I took an underwater pic too! So gorgeous I can't even get over it! It's polishes like this that remind me why I love polish so much in the first place, you can get so many amazing effects that just can't be reproduced in make-up or clothing!

I also have a couple of pictures of this flaky layered over a plain black creme base so that we can appreciate the colour shift of the flakies alone without the added confusion of the shifting base below. The clouds were coming back to start raining again when I was ready to take this first picture and so couldn't get a full sun shot, but shifters don't fare well in full sun anyway so I figured you would forgive me! 

Ahhhh just as glorious even without a shifty base! I took a pic in the pool too and was surprised to discover a very blue tone to it, you couldn't see that even in the bottle!

One last flaky from Mohda and this is called 'Mix Ballada' which I was unable to translate! I should have swatched this one first, it's not a colour shifter but it's still pretty, it's just that after witnessing the magic of the last one it made me feel a bit meh! I have to get that colour shifter out of my head and try this other one another day and I'm sure I'll feel better about it! It has blue, green and copper flakies, and I have it here layered over black in full sun and shade. Though not as pretty as the last one the formula was just as great!

So that's it for todays post, I hope you enjoyed the bonus flakies and the shit ton of pics of colour shifters! lol! Tomorrow I have the very last of my Brazilian polish haul, but as always I saved the best til last, so if you thought that today's polishes were beautiful, tomorrow Imma' blow yer socks off! Don't miss it!
