A New Chrome Discovery

Hey guys! I know I've been M.I.A. for a few days, other than my constant twitter moaning, but it's exam period in Uni at the moment and I have 4 exams to study for. I got the first one out of the way this morning so I felt I deserved a break from revision and stressing to do my nails properly.

A few weeks ago, I saw swatches of a chrome polish from Avon at Goose's Glitter. I know how amazing chromes are for stamping and since I know Avon is a brand I can get my hands on here in the UK, I started my treasure hunt to get my hands on a bottle.

Avon aren't actually selling this on their website or in the book, but I found a few bottles on eBay and eventually won the bidding on this one at a good price. It popped through my door on Saturday but due to my lack of studying last week, my weekend was crammed full of it so I had no time to play with my new polish.

So today, as a reward to myself for all my work, I went a bit overboard with manicuring. I painted my nails about 5 different colours today before I was happy!

Plate: Bundle Monster - BM21
Base Colour: W7 - Blue Lagoon
Stamping Colour: Avon Mirror Shine - Blue Steel
Top Coat of NYC

  5. This mani is so HOT it makes my eyes water! I love it!

  6. I have been eyeing some avon polishes like that lately, now I know I'm going to buy it!

  7. I'm so so jealous! I never find good "off brand" lacquers for stamping, and I only have one chrome in general. I want your skills in tracking polish! :D

    Salla - I am a bit of a polish stalker! I always find my bottle hehe.

    Anonymous - good to hear from you! Just practice really, that's the best advice I can give :)
