Up to date indie stash..

I'm quite surprisd by how many polishes I've actually made! Next thing is I'm in desparate need of a big shop, but it has to be done! The top  two pics are my non-holographic nps, and the bottom to show all the holo ones I've made. Not too bad, though I say so myself! What do you think? Also, I'd love for you to name these polishes, as I have no clue as to what I should call them, so your help would be fantastic!
Anyway, I'm going to show you the nail polish in it's bottles today, and I thought I'd show you all the swatches tomorrow.Be warned, they really don't look all that great, but there are a couple of real beauties hidden in this stash!

Photo one - The non holo's
Not too many, I know. Not super original colours either(please remember I'm a complete novice at this!)
Pictures 2 and 3 - the holo's
These are my special babies. One of them is the holo brown that I made with such resounding success on Facebook.
There are some totally gorgeous colours in this little lot! More to be reveal in a few days! Again, any ideas for colours please shoot me s message! In the mean time g'night! Be safe.

See you soon lovies!

Post note- The spelling in this post was seriously lacking, I just had to go back through and do some major editing! That's what happens when you take your meds then attempt to write on your blog! Lol! Lesson learned I guess, srong opiates and blogging don't mix too well.

Lemming for OPI Creme De Menthe

This is a nail polish that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it. It is also, as you know VHTF. I've looked everywhere, and I've had no luck getting my hands on it. I decided to try and make it for myself.  This is my latest attempt...

I don't know where I'm going wrong, but I'm nowhere near close. I've made a pretty green alright, but it's nothing like Creme De Menthe. I don't know if it's not green enough? Or maybe it's too green? I know 'mI lacking on the gold and I'm not sure how to resolve that. I don't think adding more gold mica will solve the issue, because the gold is part of the duochrome effect. Do you have any ideas as to what I can do now? Do you know of any micas out there that will create that gold duochrome effect I need? Does anyone have any recipes where they've successfully recreated a Creme De Menthe indie or franken? Any input would be fabulous, thanks ladies!

Anyway, I'll see you all soon. Loads of love!

A new indie.

I don't know about you - those of you that make indies that is, but I have a list of the various colours I wanted to try and make. This is one of them. I wanted to make a milk chocolate coloured holo, but thought it would be practically impossible. Was I wrong! Now only was it easy to make - the first attempt was a resounding success! I am so pleased with how this came out. My only problem now is the name. I think Milk Chocolate is very boring personally. What do you think? Do you have any ideas for names for this colour?

Here's some pics for you all to feast your eyes upon. Good enough to eat, don't you think???

After the year I've had, it's nice to have something turn out right! I can't wait to end 2012. I think it's been one of the worst years of my life, it really has. Anyway, enough of that.

I noticed some people have stopped following my blog, and I'm so disappointed, more so in myself than anything else, I know I only have myself to blame. I've been a crap blogger. I haven't been able to get sale items and swap items out in a timely manner.  Things have gone so wrong for me this year, and consequently other people have suffered, even though that wasn't my intent.

I'm sorry for my lacklustre blog performance. I'm sorry for my tardiness in many things. I aim to make it better. I want my blog to shine. I want people to enjoy it. To  love reading it, to enjoy my photo's, to have fun when buying from my blog sales. To have fun when swapping with me. I know I've let people down, and I'm sincerely sorry.  I've been very sick for a while now, I've spent a lot of time in hospital this past year or so. I lost the love of my life. It's been a bad year. 2013 will be a better year for me, fingers crossed. Put it like this, it can't get any worse, and I can't sink any lower. I'm going to stop making promises I don't keep, I'm going to stop letting people down. I'm here, and I'm here to stay. Thank you to all of you who've stuck by me, I know it hasn't been easy. You're the best! I'll see you all soon, on my next post!

Loads and loads of love,

It's been a litle while since I showed my nail art... I thought today was the perfect opportunity to show you all some more of my masterpieces! Well, maybe not masterpiece, but you know what I mean, lol! My talent doesn't seem to be getting any better, but I still love trying, it's such good fun. I love the array of products you can buy too. I have bought so much stuff from Ebay, and it's so cheap. Anyway, on to the pics. Let me know what you think!

Please bear in mind that I have absolutely no imagination. All of these designs have been copied from Youtube and various blogs. Sometimes I change things a little bit. Maybe use different colours, different flowers, rearrange where everything goes, but that's about my limit!
Thank you for bearing with me all this time, I do appreciate it. I know I've not been at all reliable, and I don't deserve any of you. You're all the best! Anyway lovelies, I'll see you all next time!Take care of yourselves, loads of love! xoxoxo

I haven't forgotten you!

How are you all doing? Where does the time go? It seems to me that only yesterday it was Spring, and here we are, nearly in the Winter! I promise(I know, I'm full of it!) to make a decent post tomorrow or Sunday. See you then!
