Simply Beautiful “Smaug’s Breath” – simply breathtaking

Simply Beautiful Smaug's Breath and OPI Up front & Personal

Simply Beautiful “Smaug’s Breath” and OPI “Up front & Personal”

I’ve got nail mail today, it was my order from Simply Beautiful (www.simplybeautiful1973.bigcartel.com) that arrived. I only ordered one polish, but what a polish!! “Smaug’s Breath” is a stunning glitter mix of holographic gold, red and orange glitters and the clear base is filled with tiny holographic gold glitter. Pure glitter joy!!

The formula was quite good for a glitter this dense. I did two coats with some dabbing of glitters to cover more bald spots after first coat.

I paired this stunning glitter with an equal stunning golden champagne polish – OPI “Up front & personal” and I’m quite happy with the outcome. A really sparkling and festive mani suitable for a holiday party or just to cheer up a dull and grey Monday!! 😀

Hmm, I got a rogue little hair showing in the pictures 😛 Don’t you just hate when that happens?!

“Magic” glitters from Mavala


I’ve bought two glitters from Mavalas new collection “Magic Stardust”.  Magic Saphir (139) and Magic Sari (143). Both glitters are stunning and very appropriate for this season or when ever you’d like some bling.

Magic Saphir is a mix of blue, purple, magenta and silver glitter. Magic Sari is a mix of red, pink, orange and green glitter.

You can wear both glitters as toppers layered over another shade or on its own.
