This is two coats over a base of Nailtiques 2 and topped off with Nails Inc Kensington Top coat.  Formula was good, creamy and easy to use.  It certainly gives me mannequin hands!  Its a great clean, classic look.  Great for when you want neat nails without drawing attention to them.

On the website you can search by collection, there are eight sets and one set of top and base coat www.nellamilano.com.  You can also visit the brand on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or Facebook to keep up to date with releases and current shades.  The price point is £8.95.  But this week, Peach Schnapps should be on offer for £4.95, so if you like the look of this, this is the week to take the plunge and buy!

Kilo Cupcake Nails – 650 Peach

I have a bit of an older polish to share with you today, this one I picked up over the Summer and forgot to upload the pics…. d’oh!  Anyway, I’ve seen a few of these knocking about on blog sales so thought it was worth posting anyway.  This is shade 650, otherwise known as Peach.

This is an orange leaning peach shade, with hints of red within it.  It does dry quite rough, a bit like hundreds and thousands, so probably why they are called Cupcake shades.

Formula was OK, easy to work with, but it dries quickly and can start to go a bit gloopy on the brush.  So just a bit of care is needed.  This it two coats over a base of G&G Stuck on Blu!  No top coat otherwise that would chnage the look.  I did quite like this when I had it on my nails – it was summery and fresh.  Bizarrely it picked up all sorts of dirt because of the rough finish so by the end of the day one or two of the nails had obvious black bits on.  But maybe I’m just a messy so and so.

Anyway, I’m still loving a good textured shade!  Let me know if you picked up any of these over the summer!

365 Days of Color – Frolicking

Its another 365 Days of Color polish for you today, you may remember before my holiday that we saw Nomad, a lovely spring yellow with teal glitter.  This is also part of the La Boheme Collection.  I treated myself to three from this range because they are beautiful, but now I kinda wish I has bought the whole collection!

Now this one just SCREAMS spring.  Its like a Japanese blossom storm on the nail.  I got lots of comments about how seasonal this polish is and how lovely it looks on the nail.  I can’t disagree, they are quite right!  The colour combination is just divine, a wonderful seafoam green with glitter in pink and peach colours.  the glitter is a number of different sizes and there aren’t just hexes there are little squares and finally very small brown (or black) dots that pull it all together and give it a bit of an edge.

Application for this was great, above you see three thin coats.  The glitter was evenly dispersed throughout the polish and there was no issue with it whilst on the brush.  Glitter placement was very even for all three coats leading to this lovely look.  I based with Nailtiques 2, followed by a layer of Seche Clear and them topped with Seche Vite for a lovely glossy finish.

365 Days of Color can be bought directly from Sunny at her store, you can also read her lovely blog and ‘like’ her page on Facebook. She does ship internationally and do check her store often for new collections and special offers that come up.  Her creations are so lovely you are going to want to buy many of them as well as treating yourself to some of her lovely beauty balms.
