Chanel Ming & Miami Peach

I really do apologise for my absence, but this weekend mum let me swatch a little of her stash. Her two new Chanels, Ming and Miami Peach. I also have some good news for Kiwis at the end of the post.

I also apologise for my nails, I bit them all off. Mum has given me her bottle of Qtica Nail Growth Stimulator treatment so we can test that again.

Ming - two coats. Beautiful formula, beautiful pink. 

Miami Peach - two coats as well. Also a nice formula, a tad more runny though. Still easy to work with.

OPI Hong Kong Pinks Comparisons

Ok so I thought I would compare the pinks together as I thought they were closer but really... they aren't :)

Lined up we have: Don't Think Just Pink, Lucky Lucky Lavender, I'm Ok You're Bouquet and Panda-monium Pink.
Don't Think Just Pink compared to Lucky Lucky is much more red to me and a little more squishy looking.

Lucky Lucky compared to I'm Bouquet again is more lilac toned. I'm Bouquet is quite a yellow toned pink.

I'm Bouquet compared to Pandamonium Pink is again more yellow and I guess softer looking. Pandamonium Pink is more stark, more pastel like.

My favourite shade out of all of them: Lucky Lucky Lavender. I think I will change For Audrey and put it on! First time I have worn polish for a little while, it's almost exciting again :)

OPI Black Cherry Chutney

This was one that I bought ages ago! But I gave it to my sister awhile back and then had to swap her something to get it back! :D

After all that effort to get Black Cherry Chutney, it only looks good in the sunlight. It mostly looks black indoors. So I do reccomend to wear it in the Summer time :)

I used just two coats here. Cherry Chutney is well pigmented. The formula is really nice too. 

I really did like quite a few polishes from the India collection... more to come I guess :)

OPI Done Out In Deco

Today I thought I would show you OPI Done Out In Deco. When it first came out I didn't really like it all that much, but after loving it on my sister so much I just had to try it again.

I do quite like Done Out In Deco the second time round. Isn't it funny how that happens? Hate a colour then later on love it? 

Done Out In Deco came out at the start of 2009 in the South Beach collection. I have posted a few colours from that collection so make sure you do a little search on NJ if you are interested :)

I only needed two coats from Deco to get full coverage. The formula is alright, not quite as amazing as the Hong Kong collection but definitely not bad at all.

Also on I guess a sadder note, i'm not too sure how much longer Nail Juice will keep going. It has been so much fun but there are a few issues in life at the moment that are just taking the time, fun and excitement out of it.
We'll see how it goes :)
