Ready for Christmas

Feels like there are a couple of dozen manis in my folders I haven’t gotten around to posting this year. Probably feels that way, because it’s true. 😛

Still, with this mani I’m not playing catch-up as I added the top coat minutes ago and now all I need to be completely ready for Christmas is to bake my gingersnaps. 😀

So, not having done nail art for a long time, I was just overflowing with ideas for what I wanted on my nails for Christmas.

And when there’s a difficult choice to be made… go with everything. 😀 So, skittles it is.

My thumb was the deep yellow of Pupa No 088 topped with Twinkle Lights and Pot of Gold.

I love every single nail! 😀 😀

That said, I’d forgotten just how gorgeous Ruby Pumps is! It’s been over a year since it was on my nails and with all the fascinating multichromes and stuff coming out lately, it’s easy to forget such a classic. But seriously. It has to be one of the most beautiful polishes ever made. Not even kidding. 🙂

Hope everybody is enjoying their holidays! 🙂

Bringing Sunshine to…

…the dark autumn days. 😀

Hello, gorgeous! This is my favourite shade of yellow. Deep, vivid… ochre or egg yolk or whatever you want to call it.

Pupa No 088 went on easily in two coats and it’s instantly become one of my favourite creme polishes. 😀

This has been matching my outfits for days. 😛 I have enough tops, sweaters, skirts, dresses, pants *and* a blazer in this shade of yellow I could play matchup for ages. 😉

And yup, not just being my favourite shade of yellow, side by side with royal blue this is one of my two favourite colours. 🙂

Holo Time

There’s no sun. And I still have two Pupa holos to try out I bought this summer. Well, at least I can wishful-think that wearing a holo will bring out the sun.

Pupa – Holographic No 081 is a light cool green linear holo. The formula and application of this reminded me a lot of the China Glaze OMG collection polishes. As did the stunning linear holo effect. Almost a one-coater and needing careful application on the second coat.

Actually, even if the polish description calls it light green, there’s a pretty strong blueish tint to it.

Stunning polish, really. 🙂
