Bad blogger! Bad!

Firstly, apologies for being a bad blogger. I broke a lot of nails last week and my heart hasn't been in it as a result. I'll have some older manis up starting tomorrow until my nails are in better shape.

See you then,

Jess

Emily de Molly - Harmony

Hello all. I'm back. For the last week I've been doing a wear test of Emily de Molly's Harmony. I love this polish. I've been wearing it for 6 days now with absolutely no tip wear and I'm only now getting sick of staring at it.

Harmony is a pale grey crelly with purple, turquoise and white glitters. It's wonderful to apply and look at; it has this soft peaceful beauty to it. I've used two coats with Ozotic Top Coat for these pictures.

So what do you think? This is definitely a winner for me.

I'll be back (relatively) soon with another Emily de Molly for your viewing pleasure. Until then,

Where to buy:

Emily De Molly Polishes can be found at her Etsy and Big Cartel stores in Australia.

Say you're happy now... Once More With Feeling

Once More With Feeling!

I cannot express the depth of my love for Once More With Feeling. It's what I watch on my birthday or when I'm feeling down. No matter what is going on in my life, Once More With Feeling always makes me happy and now this polish does too. I'm going to have to leave the diatribe at that or I'll spend all night rambling on. Enjoy.

This is two coats of Once More With Feeling with Seche Vite Topcoat. It appears a bit more purple than blurple on the nail but there isn't a whole lot of difference. I really adore this polish. Like REALLY adore it. It's so subtle that it's stunning.

So what do you think? I'm dying to know your thoughts on this pretty.

I'll be back tomorrow with a wrap-up of the collection. Until then,

Grr Argh!

Grrr Argh!

Who didn't have a love/hate relationship with this guy watching Buffy? You love him because- well he's pretty awesome. But you hate him because it meant the end of the episode. But regardless of how you feel about him, you've got to love this polish.

Am I right? How could you not love this polish? It is so shiny. You turn it one direction and it flashes red; turn it another and it flashes blue. It is really pretty.

I have used two coat of Grrr Argh with Ozotic Top Coat for these pictures.

So what do you think? I love this one. Every time I look at it I feel like I have to do the monster hands. It just makes you feel happy.

Tomorrow marks the last of the Sunnydale Collection. Tune in for Once More With Feeling tomorrow. Until then,

Where to buy:

The Sunnydale Collection, (minus Giles which has, unfortunately, sold out), can be found here.

Bunnies, Bunnies it must be Bunnies!

Bunnies are Evil!

Xander: "That's your scary costume?" Anya: "Bunnies frighten me."

I have always maintained my firm belief that bunnies are evil and Anya is definitely with me. If you've ever seen Buffy it is more than likely that you've seen the musical episode 'Once More With Feeling' (Accompanying polish to be reviewed in a few days). One of the most iconic moments is Anya's Bunnies Song. Enjoy.

Don't you just love it? Now for your continued enjoyment, Bunnies are Evil.

This is two coats of Bunnies are Evil with Ozotic Top Coat. Bunnies is a funny one to classify; at the simple level it's a purple base with silver Flakies and Holo pigments. But when you look at it it can appear duochromatic from a dusty pink to a dark purple. It's a lovely little polish that can be both everyday and then dressier when the light hits it.

So what do you think? Personally I think this is a great polish. It's not in my top 5 of the collection but it is undeniably beautiful.

Join me tomorrow for Grrr-argh. Until then,

Look it up: Slayer comma the

BUFFY!

I'm the Slayer. Slay-er. Chosen One. "She who hangs out a lot in cemeteries"?

I can't imagine a world without Buffy. I grew up with Buffy. Buffy gave me wonderful knowledge like otherwhere, the wacky, wiggins and an elsewhere to be. Buffy taught me to speak and be kick arse. So enjoy the Buffy love.

This is two coats with Ozotic Top Coat. Isn't she gorgeous?! Every time you think you've seen everything this polish has to offer, you'll shift your fingers and find something you haven't noticed before. It's wonderful.

Cordelia, your mouth is open, sound is coming from it. This is never good.

Okay, I'm cookie dough. I'm not done baking. I'm not finished becoming whatever the hell it is I'm gonna turn out to be. I make it through this, and the next thing, and the next thing, and... maybe one day I turn around and realise I'm ready. I'm cookies. And then, you know, if I want someone to eat- or enjoy warm, delicious cookie me, then, that's fine. That'll be then. When I'm done.

I didn't jump to conclusions. I took a small step, and conclusions there were.

When Giles sends me on a mission, he says "please." And afterwards I get a cookie.

I'm gonna give you all a nice, fun, normal evening if I have to kill every person on the face of the Earth to do it.

So what do you think? Personally, I love this polish. It's sultry and sparkly and lovely. The entire collection is truly great with something to suit your every mood; from dark and broody (Angel) to goofy and crazy (Xander).

So what's your favourite? Personally my picks are Oz, Buffy, Willow and Giles. But that's me, I'd love to hear your picks.

I'll hopefully be back tomorrow with one of the LEs (if they arrive in time). Until then, enjoy a few more Buffy quotes.

What else would I want to pump you for? I really just said that, didn't I?

Sorry, but I'm an old-fashioned gal. I was raised to believe that men dig up the corpses and the women have the babies.

You named your stake? Remind me to get you a stuffed animal.
