Throwback Thursday

I’ve been away from home for a few days, so I’m really out of step with my manicures, so this is a bit of a cheat post, but I’ll be back to new things soon. Besides, I have been intending to re-swatch this polish for ages, and now I finally have, and it has only strengthened my love for it!

This is HITS Mari Moon Cutie Pie, a Brazilian multichrome that I picked up from Llarowe for my birthday last year. I used 2 coats over black (Revlon Knockout) this time, which is starting to become my default for multichromes and thin duochromes, and it makes the colour shift so much more dramatic.

This is really doing nothing to cure my addiction to multichromes… I must have more!

Good news…

cutiepieOK, I’m back on the swatch wagon. My nails are still stubby and my fingers are a mess, but I don’t care, because it was my birthday party yesterday, and I couldn’t go without something on my nails. I feel naked without my mani! There will be a big post about my birthday shortly following this one, but first, this is what I wore for my party, HITS Mari Moon Cutie Pie (around £8.50 including shipping/llarowe.com). This stunning multichrome has got at least 5 different colours in it, most obvious are the purple and turquoise, but I also see gold, blue and pink in it under certain light. It’s quite thin, but 3 coats gave nice coverage, and it’s holding pretty well, so the formula is good quality. I will definitely be wearing this beaut again when my nails are longer.

Watch this space for my epic birthday haul post, coming right up!
