Thanks to the excellent prices that were offered, I hauled happily at this year’s BeautyAsia trade fair. Not only did I manage to stock up on nail accessories and my favourite quick-dry topcoat from Poshé, I also purchased:
- China Glaze Optical Illusion and Liquid Crystal
These 3-D glitter polishes from the Prismatic Chroma Glitters collection have a dash of holographic effect that enhances their multi-faceted quality.
- Deborah Lippmann Don’t Tell Mama, Razzle Dazzle, Wicked Game and Hit Me With Your Best Shot
In varying finishes, these appealed to me on different levels. I couldn’t resist the teal depth of Don’t Tell Mama, the dense glitter in Razzle Dazzle, the multi-chrome of Wicked Game and the smooth gunmetal of the polish named for Pat Benatar’s hit. :)
- Misa It’s You! and The Great Green Whatsit
One has intensity of colour with an occasional flash, while the other is a subtle duo-chrome.
- NfuOh 53
An ocean-blue gel base chock full of multi-coloured flecks, this lovely flakie polish will spiff up any polish in a jiffy!
- Orly Space Cadet and Galaxy Girl
I’ve had a taste of these two with MAC Formidable (I love this one so much that I think I only have less than half a bottle left) and MAC Mean & Green. Even so, I couldn’t help but pick up these gorgeous Orly Cosmic FX duo-chromes.
- Zoya Chloe, Maisie and Marina
Two flakies from Zoya (one warm, one cool) and a steely grey with a touch of blue.
- Zoya Izzy, Kissy, Noel, Twila, Holly and Rina
From the Gems & Jewels Holiday 2011 collection, these rich complementary hues of metallic shimmers and glitter glazes can be worked in a plethora of combinations! ♥
