Soft as Cashmere goes Spotty

I have worn Soft as Cashmere since Saturday, apart from some tip wear (hands are constantly in water, I don't wear gloves, lots of housework etc!) it is still in good nick.  But today I updated it with a few spots.

Color Club - Soft as Cashmere

Another Color Club from my haul last month.  I had been wanting this one for as long as I can remember.  I don't think I have any polish similar to this colour in my collection (and I have some!).  Is it Beige or Greige? I don't know!
Anyway, I am not disappointed, I love it.  This is from Color Club Untamed Luxury Collection from 2010. This is two coats and no top coat.  There is no sun at the moment, so photos aren't great.
Mid week I re-did my manicure.  I used my newly hauled Color Club Pure Energy.  For the ring finger I used a glitter by LA Colors - Aqua Crystals.
The next day for something a little different I put on some navy stripes.  Inspiration from here.

...WWW updated

 ... I wore this Tuesday and a day or so later I added some nail art using my sticky back plastic, Sinful color Black on Black and a dotting tool.
 I got my inspiration from here.

China Glaze - WWW.....

  ... Who's Wearing What by China Glaze, a lovely dusky mauve colour.  I put this on on Sunday night and it is two coats but I think I should have applied three coats.  But even so it is a lovely shade and fairly opaque.

Catherine Arley - 677

13 JULY 2011
A lovely pink, not as holographic as I expected but nevertheless, it was beautiful.  I had this on for 5 days!

Blue Sponge Gradient

A favourite manicure technique of mine.  Sponging, so easy and quick.  Normally I would do this lighter colour at the cuticle working to a darker shade to the nail tip.  I did it the other way round this time.  I used Sinful Color - Whats your name for the darkest shade, in the middle it is China Glaze - Blue Sparrow (neon)  and for the tips China Glaze - Bahamian Escape.  Topped off with SV for a smooth shiny effect.

Color Club - She's So Glam...

5 July 2011 - My Birthday Manicure
... and my nails certainly felt glam.  This was just the colour I needed after my last manicure which I did not like much at all.  But this certainly cheered me up no end.  Although the end product looks good, it was a pain to apply, really streaky and bald patches if you went over a brush stroke.  But I soon learnt what not to do and I was happy with two coats to get this rich opaque bubblegum pink.

Catherine Arley 806

Another Catherine Arley lacquer to share with you today.  This is number 806, a burnt orange shade. Just subtle holographic in this one.  I have to say it is not the sort of colour I would go for.  It doesn't do anything for my skin tone but I did not want to take it off, so I added some nail stickers.

Some Nail Lacquer Hauls!

I had been saving like mad and also had not bought any lacquer for a while, so I went a bit mad.
