Today I have a swatch to show you of a colour which is well and truly outside of my comfort zone. I don’t think I have ever really worn a colour like this in all my years of polish wearing. My Vampire Is Buff is from the OPI Euro Centrale Collection which was released in spring 2013 and it is available in both regular and Gelcolor formulas.

Have I got a stunner to show you today! This is the gorgeous Orion Nebula by Different Dimension. It’s absolutely beautiful! I have been chomping at the bit to wear this one since it arrived a few weeks ago, more so after I swatched it on a swatch stick – woah it glided on like buttah!

So I have a bit of a confession to make…. I love skittlette nails and I also love a good old bit of tone on tone stamping, in fact I think tone on tone is my favourite kind of stamping!
Today I have a beautiful, feminine skittlette manicure to show you. On my index, middle fingers and thumbs I am wearing IBD Just Gel Road To Paris and on my ring and pinky fingers I am wearing IBD Just Gel Mocha Pink. I am wearing two coats of each.

Today I have not one, two, or three but four firsts for you!
This is my FIRST manicure post on my new blog. Yaay! I am super excited to be starting out blogging and sharing my soak off gel and regular polish manicures with you.
Second, third and fourth (firsts) are as yet untried IBD colours which I have to show you, all on one pretty little skittlette manicure! I say these are untrieds as I haven’t used them on my nails until now - although I have used them on my mum and sister.
In recent months I have been bitten by the Indie polish bug. HARD! In fact, I think there may be bite marks...
At the start of this year I knew and had heard very little about the fantastic world of indie nail polish. Skip forward a mere 6 months and I’d made my first purchase, the cult neon glitter called Clowning Around by Lush Lacquer. Fast forward another few short months and there I am going mental on the iPad ordering all and sundry from Etsy independent nail polish makers otherwise known in the nail world as ‘Indie’ polish.

So, after over a year of having my page on Facebook, I have decided to dip my toe (or should that be fingernail?) into the world of Nail Blogging!
As some of you may know, in the past year I have developed rather a penchant for collecting soak off gel polishes. I’m actually quite proud of my ever growing collection. I told myself I would stop at 100 so off gel polishes. So being the cunning little polish addict that I am, when I realised I was nearing 100 bottles I quickly switched my focus to regular nail polish. Bingo! This way I can buy new polishes and nail stuff, without exceeding my self- imposed limit. Clever huh?!
With the brands releasing new polishes which I simply adore and the fact that I already have more polish of the regular and soak off gel variety than I could ever use in my entire lifetime, I figured I should just go ahead and start blogging about the lovely polishes which magically find themselves proudly amongst my collection. Actually, there’s not much magic involved it’s more like me feverishly scrolling through page after page of nail blogs searching for swatches and then hitting up the likes of Etsy, Llarowe, Ninja Polish and eBay like a woman possessed - but hey ho- it sounded good so I’m going with it.
I hope you enjoy the blog and reading more about the colours used in my manicures and of course, lots of additional photos!
