Catrice Times Square at Midnight & NYX Blue Ave

Hi dear readers !

I hope your weekend is fine ! I just got a new laptop, the other one was a bit old, so I spend my time transfering files from the old computer to the new one ... But I don't forget you ! And I started by moving my nails folder :p

Some weeks ago I made my first order at Cherry Culture and I couldn't resist to get some NYX flakies ! You know how much I love those wonders ...

But first, let me introduce you Catrice Times Square at Midnight from the winter 2010 LE, Glamourama. It's a dark purple with blue and pink shimmer which turned more blue on the pics, sadly :(


So, unfortunately the pics turned blue but you can see all the shimmer in this polish. It's really pretty :)

Then, as I just received my Cherry Culture order, I needed to try NYX Blue Ave., a light blue sheer base with turquoise and orange flakies. I didn't know how it would look, I just wanted to try the flakes quickly, but it was really gorgeous !

Ready for that ? This post will be picture heavy ! :D





WoW. Isn't that pure awesomness ?

Depending on the light or sun, the turquoise flakes will look more green, they are a bit color changing. I also love how the flakes look like engraved in the nails, as you can see on the two last pics.

I also ordered Peach Ave from the same collection, but I think I need to get more of them :D Flakes are a very good option if you want to add a twist to your classical polish. I'll also try them over my next french manicure, I'd like to see how it looks on bare nails ;)

Did you like it ?

Have a nice day :)

It is sooooo nice! I think it is a little too dark for the summer, but in the winter I could wear it myself. I love the shimmer in this one.
The flakies are amazing, they really are! Have you ever tried to put a matte topcoat over it? That makes it even more amazing ;)
