Making a Tranzition for the New Year

Happy New Year 2013! It's been such a great journey so far for this blog and I look forward to continuing making wonderful encounters with beauty along the way with you. Let's start of this year with a new transition, a China Glaze Tranzition!


It's so interesting that nail polish companies are coming up with more innovative ways than just supplying a regular colour polish. With the tranzition polish the idea is that the colour for "Modify Me" is a soft lilac colour when applied straight from the bottle as shown in the picture above. It is really opaque in one nice thick coat. But it was really amazing to see the colour gradually deepen on application of the China Glaze Fast Forward top coat to a dark indigo blue.


It takes a while to fully develop the dark colour so just have a little patience. Here you can see the gradually darken and the full colour. I also did a bit of experimenting in that I used other top coats to see if these would also change the regular colour and they did. Some made it change in spots and not reach its full deep colour. So I would say stick to using the fast forward top coat which is was designed to work with.



Now suppose you added some "Snowflakes" onto your nails, this is how the colour would develop. So rich and vibrant.


Ok so what kind of transition are you going to make this year? Hoping it's as bright and rich as this beautiful colour!

Happy New Year!!!

  2. I initially wasn't impressed by swatches I saw of this collection but the change is so much more evident in yours! The topcoat info is very helpful and I love the version with the flakies!

But I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass. 

Nail Challenge Day 10: Blue Black Gradient Nails

Just when I thought my Rainbow nails were my favourite so far in the challenge, along came the gradient nails and replaced my love in an instant. I couldn't believe how stunning the combination of black and blue would look together. It's a truly simple design that is very popular with the DIY nail polish crowd.
