I painted this wheel long ago and it was none too sparkly, so I gave it a dusting off and each chip a fresh coat.

Ludurana Aurora Boreal Magnifica

NCLA Drop of Teal (why do almost all of my NCLA holos have wonky brushes? I avoid them due to this serious flaw …)

Toasty brown holos + li’l monkey man for CNY!

In the wee hours of last night I ordered these Innisfree x Paul Frank varnishes in honour of the Year of the Monkey …

… but they likely won’t arrive in my stockpile until early March.

So, let’s monkey around with what we’ve got!

Essence C&G Pink & Proud.

A gorgeous foil which turned out to be very expensive for me cos this hot little number is not sold in the U.S.

I ordered from a European website where shipping costs more than the merchandise…

Formula X for Sephora Intergalactic.

A scene-stealing diva and my first Formula X varnish.

Don’t anybody tell her she was obtained at a discount retailer in a farming town on the super cheap…

OPI It’s My Year and Zoya Daul

SONY DSC

These two are part of that PFF clique of pink, then purple varnishes with crazy gold shimmer.

Zoya Daul appears to have a brighter blurple base than It’s My Year, no?

SONY DSC

I was nuts over the whole gamut when these first came onto the scene.

Had most all of them, then shuffled, traded and repurchased until I was left with these two.

Will save that tale for another time when the sun, rather than the moon, is shining.
