Yes, so today is my birthday!!
I always love wearing purples so I chose some of my recent acquisitions. Gold works really well with purple so here’s the royal manicure!
- Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Nail Lacquer in Cruising – a semi-matte pale gold
- Zoya Petra – on ring only, a midtone smokey purple cream with OPI Mad As A Hatter – multicoloured glitter in a clear grey base
- Pedi – Zoya Neeka -darkened smokey purple with silver microshimmer
I have taken advantage of some recent sales and collected a few more nail polishes to add to my arsenal. I got some stuff from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics and Zoya. Both are vegan lines, by the way.

Extravaganza by OCC
Extravaganza is part of OCC’s Fall 2011 collection, Pretty Boy. I think for autumn, it is an unusual colour as it reminds me of summer, but it is warm somewhere in the world, isn’t it? LOL! Extravaganza is a pinkish-coral with green-gold duochrome microshimmer. This was one of the stand out colours from this collection, I love it. It is bright but not neon and I think that it works well for women with darker skin as well as ladies with lighter complexion. Finally I think that this colour is pretty neutral, not to warm or too cool. I needed at least 2 coats for this one. The formula is on the thinner side and not too streaky.
