So the other day was the Enchanted Polish restock, and when I seen I love you Lilac I knew it had to be mine, but alas I did not get it :( I did get others though, but not that one! So the next day I was thinking to myself I must try and recreate this look, so this was my best go. Opi Rumples Wiggins and Girly Bits Hocus Pocus on top.
The top two where taken in direct sunlight and the bottom one was in the shade, I think I got the look I wanted, is an exact dupe? not really but its the same look. Does that mean I wont buy the Enchanted if I can? Nope! I totally plan it it hahah!
Today I have what I think is a special polish, Illamasqua Raindrops! I know it was very popular in the nail polish community when it was first released a few years ago, but it was LE and hard to find.. Now Illamasqua has brought it back!! I can see why so many people love it. Its is beautiful, subtle and unique.
I would say this is a blue toned gray with small silver/white glass fleck. It is sheer but buildable without any issues, I used 3 coats to get full opacity, the formula was awesome there was no streaking or tugging at the cuticle when I added the next coat and it didn't get thick and gooey after 3 coats.
The only problem is that its only available on the Illamasqua website and the shipping is rather expensive coming from the UK, I bought this in a group buy to save on shipping and I paid about $20 USD, but I think this is very very much worth the 20 dollars, I also bought the LE Pink Raindrops and I should be getting that in a few weeks so keep your eyes open!
So what do you think, are you planning on picking this up? Let me know if you have any questions :)
Happy almost Valentines Day :) I hope you all have a fantastic day tomorrow whether you are staying in, going out or you kids are your Valentine this year! I my self plan to watch some Dr. Who and cuddle my cats hahah because the bf works every Valentines Day evening :( He's a cook and every year the local firemen "borrow" the restaurant do the waiting and dishes, they pay the cooks but the fireman keep the profits from the evening because they are volunteer its like a charity thing. So being that I'm going to be alone I wanted to have something pretty one my nails but I'm not very good at nail art.. I mean I can to ok on my left hand but to try and do the same on my other is a real pain in the but! So I normally stay away from it and stick to glitter and such which makes it look like I did something, when I really didn't Today I wanted to try and do something for Valentines so i whipped this together :)
Excuse my dry cuticles.. I do not understand how I can have oily skin and cuticles this dry, I use oils and creams on the all the time and they don't get much better then this :(.
I used China Glaze Ruby Pumps and OPI Alpine snow to make the hearts. So did you guys do any Valentines Day nails or did you do anti Vday nails? I'd love to hear about it.

Does it bug anyone else when Brands change their bottles or labels? It drive me bonkers! then they dont match on my racks and it messes up the flow... no? just me?
Hi! I've been on a real indie kick lately.. and I've gone a little nuts, I have a bunch more in the mail from all different brands, cant wait! anywho today I have Hare polish Cosmo Blossom to share with you all. This one and hare's Afterglow were my 1st and they did not disappoint.
Cosmo Blossoms is medium purple with micro and small green glitter. It can be opaque in 3-4 coats, however in these pics it is 2 coats layered over Essie's Nice is Nice.
I took these pictures in the sun but they still turned out a touch more blue, in real life they are bit more grape purple.
The formula on this was awesome, I never had to fuss with the glitter it just went on even, yay! It also dried super fast but it was little rough so used 2 coats on Butter London's topcoat, but 1 coat of something thick like Seche Vete would also work just fine.
So what do you think? Have you tried any hares, and what are your favorites?
