I'm George, and I'm Kas's best friend and fellow polish addict who will now be contributing here! I had my own blog briefly, but we decided it was silly to be separate, so I'm moving over here!
A little about me: In addition to nails and nail-related posts, I'm a skincare junkie, so I will be posting reviews for skincare products too. I love glitter, bright colours, and all things eye-catching, so my posts will be leaning more toward the crazier end of the scale. I have a few neutrals that are basically relegated to the "job interviews and tea with the queen" part of my polish rack. The gaudier, the more I'll love it.
So, to introduce you all to me and my style, here are some recent favourite manicures from me!
Valentine's Day. Very subdued for me but still cute. Still mastering small details on my non-dominant hand, so the other middle finger had a larger heart and spots. Obviously took this pre-cleanup. Polishes used: Illamasqua Load and Illamasqua Throb. Couldn't resist those names!
Dots - These are quite old, and I used OPI's Fly and Did It On Em from the Nicki Minaj collection.
China Glaze Ruby Pumps and Pure Ice Crushed. Pure Ice Crackles are the best I've found. Excellent formula cracks like a dream.
Explosions with OPI's Fly and Did It On Em. In case you couldn't tell, I'm a little obsessed with these colours. Another pre-cleanup shot.
Excuse the old blackberry picture! These were my NYE 2011 nails. Polishes used: Zoya Julieanne, OPI Last Friday Night, Sally Hansen Urban Chic(China Glaze Fairy Dust is a dupe), and Orly Glitz and Glamour.
Goldfish scale nails with Finger Paints Outta Sight Orange, China Glaze Solar Flare(Milani Gold is a dupe), and OPI Y'all Come Back Y'Hear.
This one was a surprise! Julep Taylor with a single coat of OPI Servin' Up Sparkle. The glitter changed the colour of Taylor, which is rather periwinkle. It was such an odd and profound shift!
OPI Crown Me Already over OPI Lucerne-Tainly Look Marvellous. This is my go-to for when I want to be blinding!
Until next time, George.
