Misunderstood Nail Girl

Every now and then people say the weirdest things to me. So much so, that I figured I would make a post about these quotes! I can't wait to hear if any of these have ever been said to you, or if you have other weird quotes.

'I couldn't possibly buy that polish you recommended me- I already have twenty polishes!'

'So... Holographic is basically just glitter?'
OMG I freaked over this one.
  1. There is no such thing as JUST glitter!
  2. It's not glitter, it's HOLO!
'Is this polish I am wearing orange? My mum says it's orange.'
It wasn't orange. It was a perfect salmon. OPI Hot & Spicy.

And of course the much heard 'Don't you already own a pink/purple/red/etc polish?'
Plus the related "I see you are out of storage room. I suppose you're done now?"

Now, for some Nail Polish memes! I found the first two over at NailsLikeLace, so go and check out the other memes there.

This one was sent in for a giveaway over at The Polish Addict. As a Trekkie, I love this even more :D
Seriously, get a thinner! I love the one by OPI.

This I found over at YouGotNailz. My younger sister and I know this entire movie by heart so I sing this meme, rather than read it =D

And this one, over at WOW Polish. Heehee.

I also just had to make one myself. Wonder if any of you can relate? ;-)

My Lacquer Family posted this gem just today:
Great. Now I'll have that song stuck in my head for the next couple of days.


What is your favourite nail polish meme? Or what is the weirdest thing someone ever said to you about nail polish? Let me know!

Euro Indies: Let It Glitter

Pretties,

today I have something for you that I personally find very exciting. It will be a lengthy, picture heavy post so I've added a break.
By now everyone is familiar with indie polishes and can name two or three brands. Relatively harder to find though, are European indie polishes. I think this is partly because it's just so friggin' hard to get a good suspension base here. Most companies are hesitant to risk shipping them due to shippers' policies.

So, you can imagine how excited I was to discover a Dutch indie brand! Guys, let me introduce you to Let It Glitter.

And really, the name says it all. If it's not glitter, this girl isn't making and selling it. I decided on half of the Christmas collection. The Christmas collection is divided in two sets (clever!), being 'Winter' and 'Wonderland'. I got 'Winter', and today I'm showing you the polish that made my mind up <3
The polishes arrived quickly and there was a personal note attached. I just love that <3

First, this is 'Winter':

Let It Snow, Christmas Eve, Jingle Bells, Santa Baby and Gingerbread Man (Etsy/letitglitter)

Doesn't Suzanne take the prettiest pics of her polishes?

Super Easy Nail Art: Brick Lane Gradient

Happy Monday pretties! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend.

Another super easy mani for you today. Super easy but quite fetching, I think!

I have written about Nails Inc Brick Lane before. I love how easy it is to change your entire mani with just a splash of it. For this look I first did a gradient of grey and blue, then added one coat of Brick Lane. I love this look! I think it's good all year round.


I used: Rimmel Grey Matter, OPI Unfor-Greta-bly Blue, Nails Inc Brick Lane

NOTD: Darling Diva Polish Get Off

Pretties,I know I am behind on my nail art. Good thing it's FRIDAY today so I'll be able to finally sit down and do my nails properly. I hope you are all looking at a fantastic weekend =)

Quick Nails of The Day. Nail polish of the Day, actually.

This is Darling Diva Polish Get Off. I got this by ordering the 5 for 25 deal on their Etsy. This means you get five polishes that are no longer listed. I love this deal!

Get Off actually is still listed, but the swatch is different. As you can see, my Get Off dries up more blue-silvery than you'd expect from the bottle. No problem for me, as I went into this without any expectations. I love it just the way it is <3

This is what you get if you order a bottle of Get Off:

Because of this and the fact that they say they put no longer listed polishes in this deal, I actually think my bottle may be labeled incorrectly. Either way, I love the polish.

Have you ever tried deals like this one? Any deals to recommend me?
