Pretty Serious ‘Type 40′…and some overdue updates

It’s been months since I last blogged, I know. Last year was a pretty big one, with a wedding, a (seemingly never ending) house extension and some pretty major business changes so it’s probably not surprising that blogging has taken a bit of a back seat.

Powder Perfect Egyptology Part one – The Lower Kingdom

Powder Perfect Lower Kingdom

This collection makes for one hell of a sparkly post! This is part one of Powder Perfect’s Egyptology series – The Lower Kingdom – a set of five super sparkly glitters.

You can read more about Jacinta’s inspiration for the collection here, and I’ll never get bored of saying how much I admire her sources of inspiration that go way beyond over-done pop culture, but I’ll crack on with the sparkly pictures now!

Morgan Taylor Cinderella

Morgan Taylor Cinderella

The latest live-action film from Disney is Kenneth Branagh’s ‘Cinderella’ with the lovely Lily James (of Downton Abbey fame) and Richard Madden aka Robb Stark from Game of Thrones – he’s no Jon Snow but he’ll do. Morgan Taylor have a cute collection of pastel pinks and blues out for the official Cinderella release, and I have 3 to show you.

Pretty Serious Rooftop Soiree Collection

Pretty Serious Rooftop Soiree

I know, I know, it’s been a while. Lots going on outside the world of blogging for me lately, but I did swatch these around Christmas (as my nail length shows – they’re now pretty short) but have only just found some time to write a post for them! The polishes in this post are the offerings from Pretty Serious Cosmetics for the festive season of 2014, the Rooftop Soiree collection (fun fact: I mistype ‘roof’ as ‘foof’ every time).

A VHTF Illamasqua gradient – ‘Destiny’ and ‘Propaganda’

I’ve been dying to show this manicure, but PR commitments have gotten in the way a little (I’m not complaining), but in the spirit of my post in which I explained my desire to blog for myself and myself alone, I’m posting this now because I’m sick of looking at it in my backlog! I have already posted about Illamasqua’s Australian exclusive ‘Destiny‘, and when I picked up a discontinued colour called ‘Propaganda’ I knew a gradient would be happening.

Barry M Winter 2014 Silks

Barry M Autumn/Winter 2014 Silk nail polish on pollypolish.com

Barry M are back with some more silks for winter. The spring silks caught me by surprise a little because I loved them far more than I thought I would. Pastels aren’t really my cup of tea though so I was excited to see more silks for winter, but in some very festive colours.
