WingDustCollections Hope

*Nothing to disclose

Happy Sunday! I travelled up to the north of Tasmania this weekend to visit my side of the family before I leave for overseas in just two weeks from today! How exciting. Anywho, it’s just a quick update tonight now I’m back home to show you a polish I wore earlier this week. It’s WingDustCollections Hope. I’ve had a look at other blogs and I think the polish is meant to be more manageable than I found it; I bought my mini below from a blog sale so it was already partially used, so maybe that’s why is was a bit difficult to apply.

I wore Hope because I wanted to wear a light coloured polish and I thought “Hey, why not a white?”. Hope is a milky white base with blue, pink and holo squares and fine holo glitter throughout. It’s quite sheer, so what you see on my nails is two coats of Hope over one coat of Models Prefer No Angel. It is quite a pretty polish – and quite stark – but I found it difficult to apply in that the square glitters just wouldn’t budge out of the bottle. I found it so hard to try and swivel the little brush around in the little bottle! Even when I tipped it upside down it and the glitters sank to the “top” I had a hard time getting out the glitter.

  • Where to buy: WingDustCollections store (on holidays at the moment)
  • Cost: US$8.50
  • Volume: 15ml (I have a mini bottle)
  • Coats to opacity: Sheer, so I used two coats over white

Well, I’m off to get some R&R; all that sitting a car is hard work. 🙂 Thanks for reading!


Nail mail & WingDustCollections Save a Life

*Nothing to disclose

Hello! So today I received the best type of mail – nail mail! About a week ago I bought some polish from ErinZi’s Nails through Erin’s blog sale. Erin’s blog is fantastic by the way, if you have not visited it you should, Erin does the most outstanding nail art and she also makes her own nail sets, which she can custom make for you as well. So yeah, totally talented. And I am totally jealous. *Sigh*

Anyway, in the blog sale I bought four polishes. Well, one’s not really a polish but more of a pack. I purchased WingDustCollections Save a Life, a beautiful delicate lilac jelly with some small holo glitters, larger purple hexes and the occasional large white hex. I also bought WingDustCollections Hope, which is a white shimmery base with small holo glitters and then some large silver, white and pink square glitters. Two very subtle polishes.

I also bought a Sally Hansen Gem Crush minis set, which includes Big Money, Be-Jeweled, Bling-tastic and Lady Luck. This was such a great find as I was considering buying some of the Gem Crush polishes, but thought I would wait until I decided which ones! So four for AU$4 was perfect.

Finally, I bought Gloss ‘n Sparkle Fruit Tingle. I have been wanting to get my hands on this polish for so long that I could barely believe Erin had it for sale! It is truly better in person. It is a bold purple creme with small silver and pink glitters and larger blue and black hexes, with the black hexes two different sizes. I cannot wait to wear it.

Here’s a picture of my nail mail, which includes the four peach gummy candy lollies Erin included in my pack as an extra surprise!
