Birthday NOTD!!!!

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

Laters! :)

Recent nail polish haul: OCC & Zoya

Good day!

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

Swatch, Extravaganza

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.
