Quo by Orly – Celestial Star

I’d like to start with a little bit of an apology for not being as consistent with the amount of posts I am used to normally doing, and the amount that will be lacking in the next few weeks.

Coming up, at the end of January or early February – I will be starting, what I am naming my “Indie Polish Blogathon” 🙂

Each day will feature a different indie brand, and a selection of their polishes (info and swatches).  I am getting a bit overwhelmed (and totally excited) about the actual amount of polishes that I have to swatch!  (you know how much glitter indies usually have??  I love it!!! But it’s brutal on wee little fingers and nails!!!)

But anyways – c’est la vie  – and this is not the only exciting thing coming up – but I will save that for another post 😉

On to the polish of the day!!

Orly’s Celestial Star

Very similar, in idea, to Turquoise Moonlight that I posted about a few days ago.  But this is more of a, sometimes royal blue, sometimes purple with a teeny bit of gold, micro glitter polish.  Unfortunately, I found it exceptionally difficult to capture the multi color changes and real beauty of this polish.  What do you think?

Time for bed!  Thanks for reading!

Quo by Orly – Turquoise Moonlight Review/Swatches

Oh, how I wish I could figure out the settings on my camera so I could show the true beauty of this polish!!!  🙂

Obviously, it is a turquoise, but it also shifts to gold – and catches the light (sunlight and indoors) like no polish (aside from a holo) I’ve seen.  With one coat, it can be used as a topcoat, as it is quite sheer – but in the photos, I have 3 coats, and it seems fully opaque to me 🙂

The only issue I have with this polish is, the color of the polish comes from glitter….teensy weensy little glitter that spreads all over your fingers when removing it.  A small complaint, and a little scrubbing will remove it after a few washes.

This polish was purchased for $7.99 ($10 when not on sale 😉 ) at Shoppers Drug Mart (in Canada)

Quo by Orly Glitter Polishes

This might be polishes that are only available in Canada @ Shoppers Drug Mart, but I’m not sure… They are pretty fabulous, and I have had a lot of searches looking for these on my blog.  So… as, I happen to have a few from the collection, I thought I would post some swatches 🙂

I think there might be one more, in a red sparkle style – but, it was out of stock… 😦

My favourite?  Without a doubt, Cheers to You!  I love the gold holographic glitter and flicks – it is spectacular when worn over black!

Have a great day!!

(ps – probably my posts will be farther between for a week or two until my nails start growing back in.  I totally dried them out and ruined them while trying to remove the yellow and blue stains.  So, out came the clippers and off went the nails… 😦  I am trying not to cry!!!)

 

 

 

 

 

Monday’s Mani and What I thought Jelly polish was

 

Yes, yes… I realize that it isn’t actually Monday – but this is the manicure I wore yesterday 🙂

 

 

 

These are the nail polishes I used:

Layla Fluo Color F10

Kleancolor Chunky Holo Poppy

Ok, so I had a thought about the Kleancolor polish as I was using it.  It was almost clear, with just a tiny bit of an orange/red color.  And it was nice and thick (but it was sticky, which was annoying)

 

Isn’t this what a Jelly polish is supposed to be?  The last Jelly polish I bought was opaque with a thin consistency and not shiny at all.  Yet, Kleancolor does not advertise that this is a Jelly.

 

I think I am very confused about what makes a Jelly polish, a Jelly polish.

 

  If anyone can help me out with this, feel free to correct me 😉 I won’t be offended at all.  I just wanna know the difference!

Sunday’s Manicure Fall Harvest

LOL  I can’t believe I names my manicure!
It really looked like it needed to be named Fall Harvest though, take a look 🙂 :

 

 

And look at the glitter!!  Doesn’t it remind you of hay?  In autumn?    ok, maybe not….still pretty though!

 

The polishes I used today were:

base – Essense 116 Gorgeous bling bling

glitter polish – Quo by Orly Cheers to you 59346

top coat – Nubar Diamond seal and shine
