Orly - Glowstick and Melt your Popsicle. Neon delights!!

Orly has some gorgeous neons out this year. I love neon polishes so I got my two favourite colours and jumped on the gradient bandwagon. Here is the result.

I used a white polish first, then applied...........

At least two coats of Glowstick. You must wait until each coat has dried before applying the next stage.  I then got a sponge and on a piece of paper I put some Orly Glowstick and .........

Some Orly Melt your Popsicle side by side. I then took my sponge and dabbed it on the two polishes and gently sponged it on the tips of my nails. I gently moved the sponge up and down to get that mid gradient. You must wait for each coat to dry too or it will lift the previous coats.
When you are satisfied, apply a coat or two of your favourite top coat. I reason I say two is because when you do a gradient the polish is sometimes a little bumpy and two top coats smoothes it out and helps blend the polishes (in my experience anyways).

This is what you get!!   Gorgeous and super bright, especially outdoors.

As soon as the sun went down, I switched on my black lights, boy these would be fun in a nightclub.

I hope you try this and enjoy them as much as I did. Thanks Orly for the lovely neons.

Heavens rainbow caught in a bottle! This is one where you have to be careful driving and not staring at the awesome colours flashing as you move your hand. Its truly an amazing polish.
Some of the photos are blurry but I couldnt leave them out as they were mezmerising. I used this polish as a top coat over a lovely rich purple but thats for another post. It applies easily and dries fast. Back to Ozotic.

I love this amazing polish. Even my little dog appreciates it!

OPI DS Extravagance

This is one beautiful polish. Its a red wine colour full of micro sparkles that give off a 3d effect.

Please excuse very short thumb nail, it broke so I cut the others too. Anyways, look at this polish, it glows, it sparkles, its love!

It took two coats to achieve full opaqueness! its long wearing especially with a top coat which adds the extra shine. Didnt try it as a matte but I am sure it would be just as pretty.

If you are looking for something pretty and amazing, this is the one for you, its become one of my favourites. Thank you OPI for this amazing polish.

I seem to be obsessed by Chartreuse or bright lime. I found Color Clubs, Limelight is right up my alley.
Its bold, bright and in your face gorgeous!

This above shot was in the sun but watch what happens when taken indoors, no sun light, its like its a totally different shade.

At first I thought I had been given a dud, it didn't look anything like I saw online. How can it be so differen?  It applies really smoothly, dries relatively fast. I like it so here is another shot outside.

Wow, its almost blinding, don't you think. The best part is when it got dark, I turned on my black I am in Heaven!

ORLY - Oh Cabana Boy

I am not really a fan of the colour pink however on nails, I kinda like it. There are some lovely pink polishes out there and this beauty caught my eye, Orly's Oh Cabana Boy!

Its a very girlie colour, its bright, happy and sexy! It applies smoothly, two coats and your done. Add a top coat and va va voom!

You will get loads of compliments with this colour, I just love it when you see people do a double take when they see your nails. It makes me feel good that people appreciate them.

 Please forgive the dirty window in the below photo, I  have to remove the mesh cover to clean it, it is on my list!

I hope you get this one, its aboslutely gorgeous!

Zoya Phoebe

I am really into the blue polishes this year. Zoya Phoebe caught my eye. It is a bright pretty blue.

The application went on really smooth. It dries fast and matte. I added a top coat, which I wish I hadnt because the matte look is gorgeous. Next time, next time!

It kind of reminds me of a sunny day, lying on the grass watching the fluffy clouds go by, lol. Silly I know!
You can buy Zoya Phoebe online, its not expensive and I am sure it will be a firm favourite if you love blue polish.

This one was taken indoors. Loving it!

I have so many favourite nail polishes but my number one, best of the best is Gosh Rainbow. Sadly the manufacturers have stop making it!  I was very lucky last year to be able to find one online. I treasure it and use it very sparingly. So without further ado.... here she is!

I used a dark blue base but any dark colour will do. Gosh Rainbow flashes green, gold and red. Absolutely gorgeous.

I have found two other colours online which claim to be dupes for this colour. I got one in yesterday, Kleancolor chunky black holo. The other one has not arrived yet, it is called CND Sugar Baby.
The chunky black has glitter not flakies, like Gosh but they reflect the same way. The CND, we will have to see.

I hope that the dupes are as good as this as this is a really lovely polish. What girl doesn't want rainbows on her nails!
