Nails of the Week #4

What a week! I'm gearing up for the 31 Day Challenge today, but sneaking in a quick roundup of my nails of the week.

MONDAY: Horrorland

Mckfresh Nail Attire - Horrorland

I have a whole bunch of untried Mckfresh and I'm slowly working my way through them. Horrorland is a lovely flecky navy blue with a perfect formula. Loving all the Goosebumps inspired polish from Mckfresh so far, Kate makes some amazing dark polish!

TUESDAY - THURSDAY: Previously on...

Tuesday saw my Tri Polish Tuesday lightning bolts, and Wednesday and Thursday I luxuriated in my favourite blue, Atlantis to Interzone from Dead Set Babes.

FRIDAY: Femme Fatale

Femme Fatale - Twilight Sorcery (matte)

This weeks theme on AIPAS was vampy - I'm not known for my high vamp looks, so I combined this with the Femme Fatale Fiends Facebook group challenge (so much alliteration!) of Matte It Up. Twilight Sorcery is a deep fuschia thermal that changes to a warm purple when cold, with plenty of gold shimmer. Mattified, I think it looks like luscious suede.

SATURDAY/SUNDAY: Swatching!

Petal Polish - Alyssum over China Glaze - At Vase Value


I spent the weekend sick, sleeping and swatching. My favourite of the weekend swatch session you will see later in the week, but this was a close second. 

Alyssum from Petal Polish was sent to me by its lovely creator Christine with a few goodies from her upcoming collection. I swatched it over an approximate butt-tonne of colours over the weekend but this was my favourite - China Glaze At Vase Value. I tried to capture the scattered holo sparkle, but my camera just refused to pick it up on the nail. Be assured it is both delicate and vibrant, and works over almost any base you can think of.

Alyssum is discontinued and available for only $6.50 from the Petal Polish Etsy store!
