I am still alive!!

Hello everyone, just to let you know I am still about but can't really take any photo's for blog as my camera is a bit iffy. It's ok for some pics but for really close up ones they're fuzzy. A good hit to the camera didn't work (unsurprisingly!!) and I'd rather have decent in focus pictures than ones I'm not happy with. Until I can afford a new one probably after christmas, I will not be posting but will still be reading all your posts. :-)

Hope you will hang in there till I can sort something out! 

Cheers Esther! xxx

Polish Days: Glitter Sandwich using Ciate - The Glossip and Color Club - Platinum Record

Hello everyone, yes I do still exist! I have been taking a bit of a break from posting as not really feeling up to it lately, this crappy weather is not helping. 

Anyway I've decided to participate in another of the Polish Days set up by Hannah from Polly Polish, and todays challenge is a glitter sandwich.

 For the manicure I used a coral jelly by Ciate called The Glossip, and filled it with Color Clubs Platinum Record, which is a glitter packed polish sent to me by Bridget of Polish, and Make-Up, and Cars, Oh My! The colours are accurate in the bottle picture below but I have no idea what happened in the actual manicure pictured as they seem very orange. My camera does not like the lamplight I use!

This is actually a triple decker sandwich, with two layers of The Glossip, one of Platinum Record, another of The Glossip, another of Platinum Record followed by a final layer of The Glossip. I finished with a final layer of Color CLub clear polish to smooth the surface.

I liked the triple layer effect as it gave the manicure a lot more depth, and think I'll try with more colours in the future. 

Please check out my fellow bloggers manicures as I look forward to seeing what they have done too:
