opi_russian_navy Accidentally discovered this colour when I was having a cheap manicure ($5!), I really really am fascinated by this colour, and am truly sorry that I haven’t the photography skills to capture the nuances of this colour. It’s a dark blue but with violet shimmer such that the colour changes depending on how the light hits it. Note however that the side effects of wearing this colour includes gazing into your nails unknowingly and being oblivious to the rest of the world :) Not necessarily a bad thing!

ydnj_greenportWas really deliberating about posting the picture because it came out slightly fuzzy, but the unexpected amazingness of the colour combination just made me want to put it up! To be honest, i did the diagonal greenport stripe only after the brown had some amount of tip wear so that i could drag out my polish longer. it turned out quite alright, and it was able to go for another 3 days!

 Night NailsI did this set of nails as an experiment for my ‘clubbing’ nails which I wanted to do for a night out. I tried a black-on-black (Black Konad Polish on a base of Man Glaze Matt) which seems to be all the rage – but can i just say that i thought of it way back when :p.

I also did a  Black Konad Polish on China Glaze’s Awaken (this is a great polish, especially if you’ve been lusting for OPI’s Earthquake like I have). The effect was amazing, my favourite had to be the black on black, but that was a little too subtle for my camera,  to fully capture. Perhaps if i went without a top coat? HMM!

A preview of the OPI You Don’t Know Jacque matt is on All Lacquered Up and I am super excited!

Apparently Lianne’s cousin and my sister are both coincidentally on the same flight returning from New York, both with our various hauls of nail polish (Lianne and I have a knack for saying the same thing, thinking the same thing etc so as serendipitous as it sounds, we’re kinda used to it)! I sure hope nothing happens to them as they approach our sunny, overpriced OPI shores.

Lianne and I are looking forward to a day of rolling around in our nail polish loot and will break only for meals and poops. Will keep y’all posted!
