Silver Elephant Walk Nails

Because glitter makes everything special! That should be my newest saying. So the next China Glaze colour from their Safari Collection is called Elephant Walk. I'm crazy about Kalahari Kiss so was pretty excited to try out Elephant Walk. To be honest, its grey shimmer colour would not be one I would normally reach for (Imagine I passed up the blue goodness of Man Hunt!).



So this beautiful colour does indeed remind me of an elephant's skin. It's not as harsh as a concrete colour since it is lighter and the shimmer within the polish makes it appear softer. 





It took me just two coats to achieve an opaque colour. This is just the way I like my polish. It applied smoothly without any bubbles, pooling or patchiness. 



Now here's where the glitter came in to the picture. It's probably just me but I found the colour looked absolutely gorgeous on the nails but not for my hands! Does that make sense to you? Anyway, to make it all better I sponged on Milani PC Girl starting from the tips upwards in a gradient style.



Ah, that was so much better. Told you, glitter makes everything special! Care to join me for a silver elephant walk? 

Happy Elephant Walking!

Maybelline Color Tattoo and Loreal Infallible Eyeshadows! Plus More!!!

I can go for weeks, maybe a month without buying new makeup. I have that discipline but all that goes to south (I’m a north girl) when new products come out to play and particularly when I was literally stalking the stores to see if there was a sighting of the new Maybelline color tattoos. Come back next month. Ask me again in two weeks time. These were the comments I kept getting but finally there are here and what better way to celebrate their arrival by going nuts and buying their showcase neighbours as well, the Loreal infallible eye-shadows. I love Pennywise!
