I don’t have much to say about Ozotic 513, apart from the fact that it is AMAZING! It’s a little bit pink, a little bit purple, a lot of awesome! Look at that holo! And sadly, this picture does not do it justice! It’s even more amazing in real life. Another great thing about it is it’s actually quite a lovely colour even when it’s not being all sunny and holo-dazzling.
In other news, I may be posting slightly less over the next 3-4 weeks (by less I mean twice a week instead of three times a week). We’re coming up to an excruciatingly busy part of the year at work, known to staff as “Rush”. Pretty much says it all. To give you guys a bit of a scale of the whole rush factor, we’ll go from having about 100 customers a day to 5000 a day for a solid two weeks. Yep, it’s called Rush for a reason! So, I’m guessing (since I’ve never actually experienced Rush) that I’ll be pretty tired of an evening and might not be the chirpy bloggie lass you’re all used to. I guess we’ll see how it goes!
I actually still have this manicure on, and I did it on Wednesday night, which is a really long time for a mani for me! That’s how much I loved it!

My amazing birthday surprise nail polish was Chanel Peridot. Isn’t it gorgeous!!! It was even more amazing in real life. Thanks again to Lucy, the best housemate for buying it for me. Unfortunately, now that I know how amazing Chanel polishes are I may not be able to control myself around them! I always justified not buying them because they were so expensive compared to other good quality nail polishes. I could get one Chanel, which retails for $39 in Australia (US$40.90, yep ladies, 40 bucks!), or I could pay retail for two OPIs, or I could get like, thirteen China Glazes online (not including postage of course)! Why buy one when you can have thirteen? Next time however, now that I know how amazing they are, I may just be tempted!
Peridot was a dream to apply, so smooth and it flowed beautifully! It was everything you want in a nail polish. And it lasted a lot longer than most other polishes. You can see a tiny bit of tip wear, but that was after three days so I think it lasted quite well for me, considering usually when I change my polish after one day the tip wear is just as bad, if not a lot worse!
It’s official. I am on a flakie spree! I can’t wait for winter when I can wear dark nail polish constantly. It always feels a bit weird wearing super vampy colours when it’s super hot outside. I spotted an Inglot store the other day and carefully looked at the whole place for the famous flakies. I couldn’t find them so I asked the girl working there, and she had some that weren’t on display that she let me have a look at. Even though they’re $16 for a teensie bottle I couldn’t resist! 204 is amazingly blue and I’ve always wanted a really blue flakie.
Sorry about the lack of actual nail art recently. Hopefully I’ll have some cool stuff coming up soon!
Into The Dark only needed one coat! That’s right, that up there is just one coat. I think out of my bajillion nail polishes I only have about three that only need one coat. Good job Essence!
Choose Me (from the regular Colour & Go collection) is apparently a dupe for OPI Catch Me In Your Net, Zoya Charla and Orly Halley’s Comet. I don’t own any of these (and now apparently don’t need to!) so I can’t compare them. Choose Me is really beautiful in real life, although while it looks completely opaque in two coats in the shade, in the sun it seemed to become a bit sheer. This was three coats.
