100K by Glam Polish

Glam Polish is sooo close to hitting 100K followers on IG! Tomorrow morning at 8am (Australian time) Glam Polish will be releasing a super special polish called "100K" to celebrate their amazing achievement. This polish is a sliver glitter polish with a rainbow of colourful microglitters. This limited edition celebration polish will also be available from Mei Mei's Signatures on Monday (only a small number are available). I had the wonderfull opportunity of swatching the beautiful polish "100K." For my swatch I used two thin coats plus a glossy top coat. It was like a glittery party on my nails, totally worthy of 100K followers!

Nail Art using HeHe Stamping Plates

I got some new stamping plates not too long ago, so I have used some of the designs in a little bit of nail art to share with you all. I hope you like it, maybe even find some inspiration for your own nail art!

I'm a mermaid! I used "Ariel" by Glam Polish stamped with "Leaf" and HeHe stamping plate 005. I added some pearl nail studs from the Born Pretty Store for the finishing touches.

Soft, simple, and delicate. I used "Glints of Glinda" by O.P.I. as my base then stamped with "Midas" by Celestial Cosmetics using HeHe stamping plate 005.

As happy as a kitten with a ball of string!  I used "Fairy Floss" "Whimsy" & "Tango" by Picture Polish, along with a black and white polish. I used HeHe 022 stamping plate using the reverse stamping technique.

Sparkly pink rainbows! Oh my! I love this more than I ever imagined. I can't stop staring at my nails (again)! I used "WHAM!" "Sweet Heart" "Hey Mama" & "Princess Parking Only" all by Glam Polish. I used stamping plate HeHe 045 and the reverse stamping technique.

Party pineapple nails! For my base I stared with "Snow Me White" by Sinful Colors then sponged on a pink and blue gradient with "Fairy Floss" by Picture Polish and "Baby's Got The Blues" by Miss Ashleigh. For my pineapples I used Qgirl stamping plate 003 with "Pitch" by Celestial, "Mellow Yellow" by Picture Polish and "Pistache" by Sinful Colors.

Think Pink & Got The Blues Trios by Glam Polish

Recently Glam Polish released a pink trio followed by a blue trio. I have swatches of both trios (...you can also see how much my little nubs grew over the course of a month).

 The Think Pink Trio launched lat month (July). It is a limited edition trio but there are still some left if you're a lover of pink polishes!

"Its a Secret" - Orchid pink holographic base with purple, blue glass flecks and pink/purple flakes. I love how the flecks and flakies look like tiny black specks in the pink base.

"Heart Breaker" - Berry pink ultra holographic polish with bronze glass flecks. Gotta love a berry pink holo in sunlight!

"Crystal Couture" -  Bright pink, orchid, silver & lavender holographic glitters in a holographic base with purple glass flecks and strong pink shimmer. I had a lot of trouble capturing the true beauty of this polish, but believe me, it is there. Beautiful in every single way!

 The Got the Blues Trio was released at the beginning of this month (August). I love that the base concept of the glitter/flakies combinations are the same as the pink trio, but in blue! I kind of hope that there is a purple version of the trio!

"Paradise" - Aqua blue holographic base with turquoise glass flecks and blue/green flakies. I love the base colour, "Paradise" is such an appropriate name for a blue that looks like crystal clear tropical waters.

"Storm" - Indigo ultra holographic polish with violet & indigo glass flecks.

"Ice Palace" - Sapphire, ocean, turquoise, silver & sky blue holo glitter in a holographic base with glass flecks and bright blue shimmer. I feel I captured this one a little better than the pink version, but seeing this polish in real life outweighs any of my photos. If the saying is a picture is worth 1,000 words, well then in this case seeing it in real life is worth 10,000.
