day one hundred and fourteen, orly prince charming, opi mamma mia

here's something a little different. this is my second to last orly (ya rly!) polish in my collection, also from the fairy tale collection (i swear one day i'll write about a collection and remember it's name! but to me..just knowing the polish name is the most important, you can find the collection from the name on your own if you wish!). it's a nice brown colour...a nice creme. but i had it on and wanted something more. creative nail design (CND) redesigned their brand awhile back and added 'effect' polishes which are sheer polishes you can layer on top of other polishes to create a specific effect. i don't own any of these polishes but i do own sheer polishes and i used one, mamma mia (from the same collection as la boheme and rent) to give this (kinda boring) brown a pink shimmer. it's really obvious in daylight (and really pretty) but it doesn't overpower the polish. i'm really quite pleased with the results, especially because it doesn't detract from the brown of the original polish!!!

i've already broken my no nail polish till february ban...i did some damage at the illamasqua counter in selfridges today. unfortunately their polishes weren't on sale but they will make their debut here shortly. one colour has totally revitalised my love of purple...so stay tuned in about a week's time (the next 7 days of polish have already been determined)

happy boxing day....4 christmases in the UK and i still don't see a purpose to boxing day. it doesn't even have anything to do with boxing!

The Orly is better with the OPI definitely.
Boxing Day? Hm, it may have been a gift box given to the servants with perhaps a brief half-day holiday. Nobody needs to know but Christmas without Boxing Day simply isn't Christmas!
