Pretty Serious Cosmetics Type 40 Swatches

*Press Sample.

Hi there everyone!
I've posted my pics most places but totally realised I'd not actually blogged this polish!!!!! *facepalm*  So today I'm sharing the Pretty Serious Cosmetics Type 40 polish. I loved that PSC released this colour, That special blue box is one of the things I remember from my childhood and as I have grown up, I have been lucky enough to share my love of Doctor Who with my daughters,

I have been to the original Doctor who museum in Llanglollen north Wales back in 1999 (my hubby family are from Llanglollen so it was one of the first places he took me!!) and When we re visited the UK in 2009 I took my daughter to the new Doctor who museum. Here are a few pics ;)

Zoe was SOOO little then!!!!!! she still loves doctor Who and watches it all the time!!!!
Shes been to comic con as the TARDIS as well as going out in her Black milk TARDIS Slouchy!!!

We even had a TARDIS Gingerbread house this year for christmas... 

So lets get on with checking out Type 40!!!!

It is a amazing blue which you only need one coat. I used 2 but I did not really need it!

As you can see with this polish a slightly different light source changes the colour completely I tried so hard but could not get 2 photos the same!!! and for me that's no something that usually happens to me!!

All I can say is the polish is perfect. And I went and brought 2 more bottles after my Press Sample arrived!!!

You can still purchase from Pretty Serious Cosmetics for $9.95 a bottle

Until next time.....

OPI Infinite Shine Polish Road test.

Hi there everyone!
Today I wanted to share the OPI infinite shine polish series,
The idea of this polish range is to provide a hard wearing polish range that will give clients up to 14 days wear.I purchased the base and top coat plus one colour to road test.

I read the instructions and applied a layer of base coat, then 2 coats of colour and finally a single layer of top coat. I did notice that the base coat took a little while to dry, while the top coat dried super fast.

Here is Day One.

Day Three- After the first 3 days I noticed a small amount of tip wear on 2 nails. this was it. the only other thing I noticed was the top coat was not as shiny as it was on day 1.

Day Five- By day 5 I had more tip wear and I also noticed some wear on other parts of my nail. Not a great deal but it was starting to bug me.

Day Eight-  So I totally forgot to take a picture before I removed the polish. But I ended up with even more tip wear. At no time did I actually get any chips which for me was amazing!!!!
For most people I think they would get 2 weeks of wear from this collection. For me the tip wear annoyed me way too much as I am so use to changing my polish every day!

You can purchase  Infinite Shine polishes at International beauty supply for wholesale purchase.

Until next time.......

 This was a big deal!!!!! Ever since they deleted it many years ago, people have been trying to buy this polish, It has even sold for several hundred $$$ on ebay!!!!
There has been a few dupes over the years, but who would not want a essie version!!!!

Rimmel Super Gel polish Swatches.

*Press Samples.

Hi there everyone!!!!
Today I have the Rimmel Super Gel polishes. There are 15 in the collection and I ahve 12 to share with you today.

The Premise with this particular polish collection is that it has the durability of gel but no UV or LED lamp is required. The polish "cures" under the normal UV rays outside.
This is suppose to give the polish durability and the claims are it lasts up to 14 days.

I wore Rimmel Blue Babe to road test these claims. I wore 2 coats of the colour and one coat of the special top coat that came with the colour. The top coat is suppose to help the durability. The polish dried super quick as did the top coat. When I wore it i had hard gel overlays on my nails, so the polish went straight over these.
 I had 7 days wear and did not get a single chip. I was very impressed as i usually chip my polish in a day!
On the 10th day I had some decent tip wear so I removed the polish to swatch the rest.
Very impressive.

OK so lets check out the colours.....

Pretty Serious Cosmetics Breathless Limited Edition Swatches

Hi there everyone!!!!
Today I have the Pretty Serious Cosmetics  Limited Edition polish Breathless.
There was only 300 of these polishes made and as soon as it was released I made sure I purchased it!
Two reasons really, first cause well.... it was green! and second I had to ensure my collection of Pretty Serious Polishes was complete! I own every polish that PSC has released so I could not stop now!!!

Breathless is a bright "frog"green polish with a tiny what I would call silver type of flakes/shimmer in it. You can pretty much get away with one coat but I used 2 thinner coats.

It is truly beautiful!!!!

You can purchase the Limited Edition  at Pretty Serious Cosmetics until it sells out. The polish retails at AUD$9.95 a bottle.

Until next time.....
