Purple, glitter and duochrome! Yes, please!

Hello everyone ^_^/

It's a lovely Sunday and time for another post too.

Today I will show you the mani I did for my recent trip to London.
I was going through my stash and found a bunch of Sinful Colors polishes that I haven't used, plus I recently randomly discovered Sally Hansen's Garnet Lapis at a local store so I decided to combine all these in a manicure and see what will happen. And this is what I got.

Here are all the nail polishes that I used.

From left to right, Seche Vite top coat, Sinful Colors I Miss You, Daddy's Girl and I Love You, Sally Hansen Garnet Lapis and Color Club Vitabase.

First I painted half of my nails with Daddy's Girl and half with I Love You.

The colours look quite similar in the bottle but on the nails Daddy's Girl is a more blueish purple (it's on my pinky and middle finger).
Then I painted some nails with I Miss You and some with Garnet Lapis. Topped everything with Seche Vite and I was ready to go.

It was very interesting seeing how differently I Miss You looked on Daddy's Girl and I Love You. Garnet Lapis on the other hand looked the same over each colour.

Recently I do not have enough time to do my nails which is why you haven't seen a lot of nail art or stamping from me, but I found that combining different colours and finishes is another way of spicing up a manicure. Also this one lasted almost 10 days with no chipping whatsoever, even when I was dragging my overstuffed suitcase at the airport!

On another note I would like to let you all know that my giveaway is now closed.

Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I am really happy and touched by all your sweet messages *^_^*

I now need to verify and count the entries and then I will announce the winners. Also as during my giveaway, my blog passed the 1000 followers mark, I picked up a couple of special items from London that will be a 1000 follower special prize. The winner of that will be picked from all my current followers and will be announced along with the winners of my giveaway.

Hope you're all having a fab weekend :)
