Birthday Haul

I have so much to swatch and the weather hasn't been good enough to get good pictures. I've swatched a few but didn't bother trying any purples because they are hard enough to photograph even when the sun is out.

This is what I've got since my last post:

Chi Chi - Scene Queen
Sally Hanson Effects Real Nail Polish Strips - Bling It On

Ulta3 - Watermelon

China Glaze - For Audrey
China Glaze - Platinum Pieces

Orly - Here Comes Trouble

Specialist Paints Holographic Flakes

Look at the holographicness!! I bought 150 grams worth of silver holographic flakes from Specialist Paints for $43.79 including postage. They didn't list Australia on their list of countries that they deliver to and I didn't notice this until after I had ordered and paid. I sent them an email to apologise and to see if they can still send it to Australia. They never replied and then a few days later the flakes showed up.

I don't think these holographic flakes are as fine as Spectraflair holographic pigment but it's so much cheaper. I've seen 25 grams of Spectraflair for $275!

I'll be posting swatches of these colours soon!


  1. I wonder what sexy person got you a majority of your new toys : P

  2. I wonder if you have a franken of your holographic flakes from Specialist Paints. Would you mind showing it to us? Thanks.

    1. I think I've only made one, I have a whole heap of fraken supplies that just sit in my drawers. I'll make something and try to swatch it this weekend for you. :)
