Manicures Galore 
(Wet n' Wild, Etude House, 
 Catrice, Tip Top) 
Hi Divas!

I haven't blogged in like FOREVER! Sorry ladies, I have been very busy with work, travelling and family stuff. My head has been all over the place lately and since it is almost Christmas time the madness is just getting worse. I hope all of you are surviving the end of year crunch time. You know things always tend to unravel this time of the year. To help keep me sane I did a little shopping to ease my busy mind. Retail therapy always helps! I bought some new nail polishes and have been testing them out recently. Hope you enjoy my little reviews.

Wet n' Wild Megalast On a Trip
I am absolutely in love with this lavender colour. When I saw it in store I just had to have it as I don't own any light purples in my collection. This is my first Wet n' Wild nail polish that I have tried and I must say that I am very impressed by the quality of the nail varnish. The consistency of the polish is quite thick. Two coats would be sufficient for a pretty manicure. In the above picture I added three coats. The brush is wider and thicker than most nail applicators so do be careful to not paint your whole finger in the process. Hehe, you know what I'm talking about, don't you? ;-) With a top coat my manicure lasted four full days with no chipping. I think that is very impressive considering the low price of these nail polishes. I am definitely sold on this brand and will be purchasing more colours soon.

Etude House Play Nails #4:
Etude House is a very famous Korean cosmetics brand. I have tried their makeup and skin care products and I really wanted to add some nail polish to my collection. I ordered three shades from Ebay and #4 is one of them. This is a pretty baby pink shade that is perfect for spring. Unfortunately the consistency and the lasting power of this nail polish is not that great. I did get two full days of wear with no chipping and then it all went down hill from there. The polish can apply quite unevenly if you are not careful. I think the trick is to gradually build the colour up with light strokes. It needs about four strokes for the desired effect I created above. Sigh, I really wanted to like this polish but it is not one of my favourites. I still have to try the other shades I bought from this brand. Will let you know what I think of them later.

Catrice Get the Blues:
I have never used  duochrome nail polish before so I was very excited to play with this polish. For those of you who don't know, a duochrome nail polish changes colour according to the light. Two colours would appear as the light reflects off the polish at different angles. With this shade a metallic blue is the main colour and with it a pretty metallic purple hue would appear reflecting off on the sides. It reminds me of fishes scales as it changes colour according to the light reflecting off it in the water as they swim. When I wear this nail polish it makes me feel like a mermaid ;-) The polish glides on smoothly too and lasts a really long time with a top coat. A sure winner for me.

Tip Top Cherry's in the Snow:
This is a beautiful strong classic red. It would be really pretty to wear Christmas time. It applies very smoothly and evenly on the nails. Two coats is just enough to create a pretty manicure. The polish is a little runny on application and can be smudged easily. So make sure your nails are completely dry before you do anything after you are done painting your nails. The polish chips easily without a top coat so I do recommend wearing this nail polish with a good base and top coat. I am not a big fan when it comes to red nail polish. I only have two shades of red in my collection. This shade of red is very classy and warm and can be worn to any occasion.

Much love beautiful Divas!
