Nails of the Week #2

Hey polish pals! Monday comes again in only a matter of hours, I don't know that I'm quite ready for another week of work. It's been a busy week for me this week, so fewer opportunities to switch up manis.

Let's see what I did wear though!

MONDAY & TUESDAY: Spotty & Stripey 

I got in early on Monday doing my Tri Polish Tuesday nails, and wore them a full two days. I actually didn't want to take them off! 

WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY: My oldest Shades of Phoenix

Shades of Phoenix - Eris


Over in Phoenix Flames, the Shades of Phoenix fan group on Facebook, Teneil asked us to show our oldest SoP polish. Mine was this spectacular beauty known as Eris. Sadly no longer available, you'll have to trawl blog sales for this one.

FRIDAY: Contrary Polish

Contrary Polish - Aruba


I've been looking at my favourite blue polishes this month so when I noticed what I thought was a blue in my untrieds I thought in the interest of fair consideration to all the blues I should give this one a try. Aruba is definitely more in the teal camp, but it's gorgeous for sure. Beautiful shimmer and lovely formula. Note to self: buy more Contrary Polish.

SATURDAY: Swatching fest

Rimmel - Bronze Princess - Metal Rush collection

Saturday was a sad old rainy day here in Brisbane, so I had a big swatch fest of some untrieds that came from grab bags and clearance bins. This Rimmel was my favourite of the bunch. Bronze Princess, from the Metal Rush collection, is not necessarily going to be everyone's cup of tea but I loved it. 

It's one of the most unique duochromes I own, and it's effortlessly shifty. That shift required no weird angle and no black base - its just always there. I'm going to be looking for more of this collection now for sure.

SUNDAY: #mynailsandmynetflix

Mckfresh Nail Attire - Buffy

I may have binge watched a good 5-6 episodes of Buffy on Netflix this afternoon. I've been watching it start to finish for the first time ever and I just got to Season 3 today. I'm hooked - it took me until late Season 2 to really get the love for the show but now I'm in it for the long run. I have to admit, Drusilla is probably my favourite character - she's completely loopy and dopey and I kinda love it.

Anyway, obviously I thought it would be super appropriate to wear Buffy from Mckfresh Nail Attire. Correct choice! The maroon and gold glass fleck swimming in a black jelly base is totally perfect.


Alright Monday, I think I'm ready for you!
