How now brown cow

Hey girls! I'm so sorry for my lack of posts but my computer‘s down and I can't get it to work for more than 5 minutes before it hangs. I'm trying to see if it‘s possible to post straight from my phone but I also need to find a watermarking app. If anyone has any watermarking apps to recommend, preferably free, that would be wonderful!

Thanks for stopping by!

Polish Haul Saturday #10

Hey ladies! It's Polish Haul Saturday #10!!!! I never thought I would ever reach this number haha. It's like a mini milestone, marks how much polish I have bought since I started this blog. Which reminds me, I've always wanted to make a list of all the polish I own, to keep track so that I can stop buying similar-looking colours. I'm always attracted to a certain shade of pink. Any recommended methods to catalogue my nail polish? I heard some bloggers use Microsoft Excel. I came across a blogger that used her phone contacts list to catalogue the polish along with a photo so that she could easily search up a polish in her collection with her phone. I thought that method was brilliant. And, I found the link! 

Okay, on to my new polishes of the week!

From left to right we have Orly Pretty-Ugly, Essie Naughty Nautical, Essie The More The Merrier, Essie Sunday Funday and Orly Ridiculously Regal. The photo is overly exposed, I'm sorry. I took it this way and I forgot to play around with the lighting and colour settings. Check out the close-up bottle shots for more colour accurate photos.

I found that I could only avoid those glaring, over-exposed if I held the bottles up near my lamp. So that's what I ended up doing.

Orly Pretty-Ugly. A gorgeous blue with some lovely shimmer although formula is a little sheer. I tested it out on my toes. Couldn't resist :P

Essie Naughty Nautical. Can't wait to try this teal shade.

Essie The More The Merrier. My first lime green polish! I'M SO EXCITED!!!

Essie Sunday Funday. I can never resist these coral, reddish shades!

Orly Ridiculously Regal. This is from the Orly Flash Glam FX Fall 2012 collection. Such a pretty glitter. I can already imagine it looking gorgeous over black or white polish!

Thanks for stopping by! :) Tell me in the comments which polish you want to see swatched first!

Catrice Denim Moore Swatch

Hello all! I have a Catrice swatch for you today. I wore this a few days ago. Denim Moore is a dark periwinkle blue with a slight shimmer. Formula was a bit thick but sheer so I applied 3 careful coats to even out the surface. Unfortunately while I was applying my top coat on my thumb, I dragged the polish below :( My thumb nail is also wonky because I keep accidentally chipping it. 

I'm not sure if this colour is supposed to be close to denim since it's named Denim Moore. But I think it's much lighter than the colour of denim although, I still love this colour. What can I say? I'm a fan of blue :)

OPI Lunch At The Delhi Swatch

Hey all, quick post because I finally have time to post again. I initially wanted to post yesterday but the website that I use to watermark my photos was having some connection issues. So sorry about that. I have been painting my nails really religiously; about two to three times a week just that I'm really slow to get the photos and posts up on time. Anyway, today I have OPI Lunch At the Delhi. This is a gorgeous coral pink that looks red under some lightings.

Impromptu photo so the background's a mess but I think this is the most colour accurate. Such a pretty shade.

I really love this shade! I'm starting to think that reds and pinks are my go-to nail polish colour when I'm not sure what to wear. And they all seem to look good with my tan skin.

What is your go-to nail polish colour? Do share with me in the comments :)
