Aussie Nails Monday - Flowers

Oops, a bit behind on this post, sorry!  That is what the school holidays do to me lol   
This weeks Aussie Nails Monday theme is flowers, and luckily over the weekend I received some awesome fimo flowers thanks to the lovely Bec at Lacquer Dreams
This is the first time I have ever used fimo, and it definitely wont be the last!  They are so cute.

The base colour is You’re A Heartbreaker from Essence 50's Girls Reloaded trend edition (ugh I hate that name!).  It looks quite grey in these photos but is actually more blueish in person.  The red is foils..  it's also the first time I have used foil, and it turned out a bit shredded, but I ended up liking the look.  I then stuck the fimo flowers on with some quick dry top coat.  I was surprised, I was expecting them to come off in the shower the next day but they actually lasted 2 days.  They probably would of stayed on another day or two, but I couldn't resist the urge to pick them any longer.  ;)

I will definitely be using fimo in more of my manis!

Are you a fimo fan?

Don't you step on my Blue Suede Shoes...

I have the most gorgeous polish to show you today!  Blue Suede Shoes from A Girl Obsessed.  

This may be one of the most beautiful blues I own!
Perfect coverage in 2 coats.  I tried out my new HK Girl top coat over it, and now I cant stop looking at my nails.

I also did my Aussie Nails Monday mani, and this weeks theme is dots.  You know how I love my dots!!  ;)

I am quite happy with how it turned out, although I wish the dots were a bit straighter.. lol
If you want to check out some more of A Girl Obsesseds polishes, she has a Facebook page, and also Etsy.  :)

Updated mani

Hi all!
I got some gorgeous new polishes yesterday, from YOU by Terry White, and could not resist layering one of them over my current mani.   Shade #15 is a beautiful silver holographic glitter in a clear base.  I first saw it on the lovely Chantelle from A Polished Prance, and knew I needed it right away!

So sparkly!

Minty Fresh!

Hi all!
Today I have a colour to show you that I never would of thought I would love as much as I do!  Covergirl Outlasts Mint Mojito.  It's such a gorgeous colour!  If I hadn't looked at swatches online before I went out shopping I would not of even looked at it, its much paler than what I usually like to wear.

The top pic was taken outside in the sun, and the bottom was inside.  The sun pic shows it as being bluer, and with the inside pic the green shows up more.  This is 2 coats, with a top coat of Out The Door.  But it was super shiny without the top coat.  Priceline is having a buy one get one free sale starting Thursday 11 April, and going for 2 weeks (I think). 
Of course with such an awesome sale I couldn't buy just one polish....

Brown, Purple and Blue!  Now that's more like it.  ;)

Have you tried any of the new Covergirl Outlast polishes yet?

Boyfriend Jeans with dots!

Hey all!
I just have to say, I am so overwhelmed with how Paint It Blue has taken off.. we have nearly 200 members in the Facebook group, and over 2100 photos tagged with #bluenailsforautism on Instagram!  I am so happy.. I hope this is something we can continue to do every year, and get more people involved and help raise autism awareness.  :)
My nails for today are Nubar 'Boyfriend Jeans'.  This is considered a dupe for Chanels Blue Boy, which sadly I don't own.  Hopefully one day!  For now, I am quite happy with the Nubar.  :)

On my ring finger I layered Glam Polish 'Evie' over it.  I know its not blue, but I only just got it and I cannot resist dots.  Must have ALL the dot polishes!  ;)

BSOD & World Autism Day!

Oops sorry this post is a day late, i just could not get it together yesterday.  April 2nd  is World Autism Awareness Day, and I decided to do a very special mani for it.
This is Pretty Serious BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death). This is one amazing polish!  I was saving it for today and I am so glad  I did, it's just incredible.

Look at that sparkle!  Pretty Serious polishes can be bought at her website here.
 I also did a puzzle piece, not the best but not too bad for my first try.  :)

It's started!

April is here, which means Autism Awareness Month has officially started!  
In particular April 2nd is an important day.  Its World Autism Awareness Day, but also Light It Up Blue!    In honor of this day, many businesses, hotels, sporting venues, concert halls, museums, bridges are among the hundreds of thousands of homes and communities that take part to Light It Up Blue, to help raise awareness about autism.  This year, I am doing something extra.  I will be painting my nails blue for the whole month!  I talked to a few of my nail polish addict friends about doing it with me, and it has just taken off from there.  I have started a Facebook group for it, Paint It Blue.  We would love it if you would join us!

We also have an IG hashtag   #bluenailsforautism , and you are welcome to follow me on IG @gypsymoon73 .
My first mani is just a plain blue that I picked up in a local cheapie store..  Charm Limit,   polish #02. Tip wear already, but I guess thats what you get with $1.50 nail polish. ;)

I love this colour!!  
Are you going blue for Autism Awareness?
