Nails: Purple Glitz n' Glam -- Face Of Australia ft. Chi Chi

Hey there peepos! I hope you guys all had a wonderful and safe Christmas! Let me know how you celebrated Christmas, because all I did was stay home and paint ma nails.. Not even kidding!

I was playing with some purple glitz and glam -- Face Of Australia's 'Castle on a Cloud' from their Pastels collection and a purple glitter nail polish from Chi Chi (this comes in a set of 8 lacquers from Target called 'Bling It On').

'Castle On A Cloud' is a very light and pale lavender. It seems like the more lacquers I try from this collection, the better it's getting! The formula and pigmentation of this one was much better than their previous lacquer that I tried "I'll Take You to the Candy Shop" -- I didn't struggle with any streakiness or sheerness so 3 coats was enough for an opaque finish!

I topped that goodness off with Chi Chi's purple glitter top coat!

The clear-based glitter top coat contains large hexagonal glitters, accompanied by tiny round glitters. Although it did look pretty, I somewhat didn't like how the hex glitters are so large! I would've like it better at a smaller size..

The clear base is SO thick. Ugh. I went though a whole lot of trouble trying to get any hex glitters on the nails as the first coat gave me a fair amount of small rounds and about 1-2 hex's (sometimes, none at all). And because of its extremely thick consistency, I couldn't layer on a second coat or it'll never dry!

I'm really not impressed of this Chi Chi glitter coat, but I have two more bottles of these glitter lacquers to try until I can officially dub these as the 'thickest glitter top coats'! Hmph!

I wish you guys all had a wonderful and lovely Christmas where ever you are in the world! Today is my Mum's 54th birthday! My sister and I got beautiful peonies and lilies delivered to her workplace... ^_^

She asked me today, "If I were to receive flowers every year for my birthday, I wonder how many flowers more can I receive?".

You will be receiving birthday flowers for the rest of my life, silly! Happy birthday Mummy Pig!!! ^_^

I hope you guys are having a wonderful day! The weather is beautiful in Sydney today.. I'm home painting my nails.... again -_-"
