#52WPNMC Favourite Brand

Hi Goddesses

Siiiiigh ....  a favourite anything is always a difficult prompt, but favourite BRAND?  Wow, where to start when there are so many, and what to reveal when it's so close to revealing your end of year favourites?

And then the answer collided with me.  I was working out my mani, thinking what I could do and then deciding I could just stamp on top .. and I realised, MoYou, they're my favourite brand.

Every Friday MoYou release new plates.  They send out an email on a Wednesday and I read it with equal excitement and trepidation, hoping to be wowed, but also hoping I won't want to buy and spend MORE MoYou money lol.

I love their creativity, marketing strategy and - most important here - their quality.  Even if you think you can't stamp, you definitely can with MoYou.

And so here we have another new Polish Bar lovely (Star Voyage) dabbled with the purple Polish Bar loveliness of Dream Galaxy and then stamped with a pattern of pure amazingness from MoYou Kaleidoscope 06.

I absolutely love the melodrama of these nails :)  there's something deliciously, vixenly gothic about them.  God bless MoYou :)

Barry M Chilli - Do You Want Dots With That?

Hi Goddesses

Another Barry M post for you today, again featuring Paprika, Mustard and Chilli.  Today Chilli gets her own post, and what a lovely she is!

Chilli is a dark Gelly red - not ruby dark, but pure red dark - like a red with all the light bled out of it.

I love the slightly dull quality of this colour.  That sounds like an insult, but it's not.  It's hard to describe that this is dark in tone without being a darker colour.  The flatness is what makes it so special.

For fun I did dots, and added Paprika and Mustard.  Together they sang and looked very very happy.

This might have looked better on the Paprika base, but I still think they look warm and autumnal together.

#52WPNMC Brush Stroke with the new Polish Bar Winter Collection

Hi Goddesses

Today you get a sneak peek of the new Polish Bar Collection, which you will see in full swatch-o-vision at the weekend.

The collection is very Christmassy, and one of the polishes makes a perfect base AND topper, so of COURSE I had to play lol.

The base of this mani is a semi-opaque white holo called Starlight, with brushstrokes of 4 other polishes on top.

Brush strokes is NOT the same as distressed nails.  With the latter, you have to wipe your brush, but with brush strokes, you're just swiping.

I was worried the mix of dark polishes and gloss top coat might not do the mani justice, so I decided to matte it and try Starlight on TOP.

Janice describes Starlight as a polish that can be worn on it's own or as a holographich topper, and I really like how a few swipes of it here really dialled down the melodrama of some of the colours, and evened the pattern out.  See, lovely playtime!
