Urban Decay Woodstock

Ladies and gentlemen; meet Urban Decay Woodstock.

Woodstock, you hurt my eyes with your prettiness <3

I can not believe I have had this polish for just under three years and never, ever worn it before. I was shocked at how neon it was! I just had to show it to you.

You may or may not remember me using the OPI neon mini's for my neon water marble and the cracked neon skittle. If you're not familiar with those, you apply a white base, then two coats of the neon polish and then a top coat.

I was going to do a pink water marble for the first prompt of the new Valentine Nail Art Challenge hosted by datyorkLOVES (more about that later today =D) and decided to use this as a base. I was just blown away by it! You guys, this is one coat. One coat. No white base, no top coat.

Woodstock was part of Urban Decay Summer of Love mini kit which was released in Spring 2010. I'm real bummed now that it's a mini as I can see myself wearing this all the time come summer =D

Have you ever been real surprised by an untried? Have you ever had an untried this long?

Be sure to check back later for the Valentine Challenge =)

Essence Breaking Dawn Pt 2 LE

Yes, I know I am so behind with this. However, I have had these polishes for some time now and just wanted to show you what they are like. It's quite cool because I also have a LE polish from when the the first movie came out, when the LE was still called A Vampire's Love rather than Twilight!

There are four polishes in this LE. A blue glitter named Jacob’s Protection, a purple glitter named Alice had a Vision – Again, a golden polish named A Piece of Forever and finally a dark grey/hard coal glitter named Edward’s love.

I took this pic and as you can see, it didn't work out. But I just couldn't not show you just how interested Ezio is in my polishes ;-) He loves playing with my polishes and dotting tools, the little rascal.

The colours are best visible from the bottom of the bottles. 

My absolute favourite is Alice Had a Vision - Again. It's a gorgeous purple packed with glitters and shimmers. It's the only polish I have photographed of the LE so far, so I think I might just skip on swatching the others ;-)

Foamy Oceans

*scheduled post due to city break*

After the disapointment from Essie Bikini so Teeny and the Chocolate Cakes/Decadent Dish blunder, I decided to try another Essie colour. Everyone deserves a second chance, right? =)
So I went and got Dive Bar. And dark blue with green and purple shimmer in the bottle.

Good news: in contrast to Bikini so Teeny, the glittering specks were very visible on my nails, yay!
Bad news: I couldn't manage to see any purple sheen once it's on the nails. Very disappointing =(
I had seen swatches like this one from Polish or Perish so I hadn't expected to not see any purple at all. It was a weekend with sun as well as a bit of rain so I kept looking at my nails constantly and from all angles but no luck.

However, I was very pleased with the mani and got some compliments, again, so I will definitely use Dive Bar again. I have just decided to prepare myself to get results that differ from what I expect when buying Essie. I was quite pleased with the Fingr's French pen, it cost a small fortune but thankfully the quality is immensely better than the Fingr's nail art pens.

I used: Essie Dive Bar, Fing'rs French Manicure Pen
