Rockin' Smash-Up Nails

Hello, and it is a happy birthday to my boyfriend!

Now, my boyfriend is the loveliest most wonderful guy in the world... but he does not give a crap about nail polish.  However, I sometimes like to make believe that he does and choose my polish accordingly.  Today I am doing my mani in his honour!  His favourite colours are black, silver and purple and he tends to prefer (well the closest thing to any form of reaction) my more 'rock' manis, so I went with Models Own Black Smash-Up over Miss Sporty's Metallic Crystal.

Pow!  I used to be a goth so I am really quite happy with my nails today ^_^

This is a coat of Smash-Up over 3 coats of Metallic Crystal; I think I took this photo before applying a top coat, which is why the shatter looks matte.  The Smash-Up polish was a birthday present, and cost £5 at Boots.  I love this polish; it gives really distinct shatters.  It looks great over a glitter as well.  Hang on, I'll dig up the old photo where I wore it over Claire's pink glitter...

And, while I'm at it, here it is over Miss Sporty's Planet Pink (bought when they were 3 for 2 at Superdrug, along with the above Metallic Crystal and a gold):

Yes, I really do love this shatter!

Yesterday I joined Polish-aholics Anonymous on Facebook and discovered a veritable treasure trove of nail blogs to follow.  If you've noticed me pop up on your list, know that I've been drooling over your blog!

  1. Thanks for following me! I too envy some of the polishes you have over there in the UK. I love the crackle!


Thank you so much for reading! I love hearing from fellow polish addicts so comments are most appreciated. Just to let you know that I am unwell some of the time but will try my best to reply xx
