ILNP Masquerade - Duochrome amazingness!!

Can I just say WOW! I have to say this is maybe the most magnificent polish I own (see the others in my last ILNP haul post)

This is my first ILNP (I Love Nail Polish) polish and it is simply gorgeous! All my favourite colours in one go! How could it possibly get any better?!

I'm delighted with the shorter flatter brush which gives excellent control and a decent amount of polish on each application. Loving the matte non slip bottle lid as well. The formula of this polish is quite thin and I needed three coats. Might have managed two if my application was thicker and heavier.

On to the pictures:

ILNP Haul!!!

It's been quite some time since I ordered nail polish online and got that kick of receiving 'nail mail' but today has made up for it! - wow - what can I say? Amazing! Quick and reasonably priced delivery (even to New Zealand) I'll definitely be purchasing from here again :)

So here's what I got:

Electric Carnival, Bikini Bottoms, Masquerade, Atomic Sherbet

The packaging is adorable. Each box is individually named with a little heart cutout on the front. The bottles have a unique matte (almost rubberised) handle which I really like.

Electric Carnival: Duochrome flakies

Bikini Bottoms: Holographic hot pink

Masquerade: Duochrome purple/green/bronze

Atomic Sherbet: holographic orange

Can't wait to try these out!!

Cult Nails Nevermore stamped with Konad M89

Since it's been such a long time since I've had my nails regularly polished and stamped I've missed out on a few updates of Konad stamping plates. I recently purchased Konad M89 (I'm not even sure if it is a new plate but new to me anyway!) I also got M95, M99, M93 and S17 - happy days!

I didn't get the opportunity to take any great shots of this stamping but managed a few quickies with my phone . . .

Base colour: Cult Nails Nevermore
Nail plate: Konad M89
Stamp colour: China Glaze 2030
Topped with Essie Good to Go

BL Fash Pack stamped BM405

An old favourite - Butter London Fash Pack - a warm taupe cream polish. Stamped with a new, or rather unused plate from Bundle Monster.

I quite like this - it reminds me of the embossed writing on the back of luxury milk chocolate!

A England Sleeping Palace

Sleeping Palace is a beautiful dusty plum from the Burne-Jones Dream Collection - simply elegant and gorgeous. Typical of all A England formulas - opaque in one coat and effortless to apply (although my swatches show two coats)

Unfortunately the sun would not play nicely today and the lightly scatter holo effect is not evident.

Artificial light in my bathroom to show the holo effect

Cirque Xochitl and Holo Haul!

Today's swatch is from Cirque Colors
I ordered these four polishes quite a while ago and have just got back into wearing polish after a long break. Perhaps coinciding with the sun making a tentative reappearance on our side of the world . . . ?
If you're going to wear holo - you need sun right?! lol

Anyway onto the swatches of the dazzling Xochitl (any idea how to pronounce that?)

Still gorgeous in the shade
And the other polishes yet to try:
