Cadillacquer The Dark...Whatever

Tonight we have another little Cadillacquer beauty.  I hope you are not sick of these yet, but I don't see how you can get sick of such pretty polishes..but anyway.  I have quite a few left to show you and am looking forward to doing so.

This one is from Cadillacquers very first collection, Do You See What I See? Even at the start Madeleine seems to have had such an eye about what goes well together.

The Dark...Whatever has a sheer blue/grey base with small black, small iridescent and bigger blue hex glitter.  As in the description, the base is a little sheer, but builds up nicely and shows off the glitters so well.

This is 1 coat of the Knight, 3 of the polish and 1 of the Shield.

Unfortunately, this one is no loger available on the Cadillacquer site, but you can buy others there and you may be able to get it from another retailer such as Llarowe, Harlow & Co or Rainbow Connection

Thanks for looking <3 xx

Cadillacquer Now and Then

Today I have another pretty little Cadillacquer to show you all.

This is another sadly discontinued one, that is no longer available on the Cadillacquer site, but I never want to miss out on showing you such a pretty polish just because it may be a little harder to get.

This one is called Now and Then and has white base with lavender, purple and white glitters though it, such a great mix and the density of the glitter is great, without being too much.

This is 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of the polish and 1 of the Shield.

This one is from the third Cadillacquer collection called All These Shiny Things - I recently got a list of all the collections and polishes within each so am loving being able to confirm this now, as sometimes, if they were no longer available polishes, I had no clue what collection they used to belong too, ha.  Although, having a complete list of all the polishes showed me how many I have, but also how many I still want...

Anyway, I digress, Cadillacquers bought from can be official site, or from from Llarowe, Harlow & Co and Rainbow Connection

Thanks for looking <3 xx

A Giveaway and a Review of some Mont Bleu Glass Nail Files

I have for you all today a little review of some Mont Bleu Glass Nail Files, I am so happy to have this product on my site again.

I think I first reviewed this product about a year and a half ago and even though I had tried Czech Glass Files before, I was so glad to find a site that sold them, and shipped to the UK, as any other time I had picked them up while in Prague.  I have used the files I got last time consistently since I got them and honestly have not noticed any lessening in how good they are when filing my nails.

I have tried many other brands of glass files, before finding this site, but these ones are hands down - no pun intended - the best I have tried. Which is one of the reasons am I so glad to have some more to show you.

Mont Bleu have a lot of different types, sizes and designs on their site.  I have a few different ones to show you. I picked one from the Elegant Line, one from the Crystal Line and one from the Hard Case Line.

The Elegant one I picked has red square crystals and little clear crystals as the design.  The Crystal one I picked has black and clear crystals in different sizes.  Both of these come in a little black velvet pouch.  Lastly I have the one in a black hard case, until now, I have been carrying the mini file I got last time in my bag, and even though it is still in perfect condition, I always worry it might break, and now with the hard case, I will have no such worry.  The file is also fitted into the lid of the case so is actually quite nice to hold when filing.

Anyway, onto the pictures.

Now, you see how pretty these are, I absolutely love both of the designs on these, and love the practically of the hard case file.  There are so many to choose from on the site, so I am sure there is something to everyones liking.

And I haven't even mentioned the file really yet.... it is made of tempered czech glass and is it noted on the site that there is a lifetime guarantee on the abrasive surface!  The size of the standard file is 135mm(5.5 inches) long and the file in the hard case is 125mm(4.92 inches long).

Now if you are still around after listening to my gushing over these files, I have a little giveaway for you.  The lovely people at Mont Bleu have kindly offered a prize of one of their sets of files.  

In this set there are 3 files with a “Waterfall” design.  A mini file which is ideal for your bag (90mm/3.54 in), a standard sized one (135mm/5.32 in) and a large one for pedicure (195mm/7.68 in)

Here is a picture of the set you can win.

This is such a great set, and good luck to all of you that enter.

The only mandatory entry is to 'like' Mont Bleu on Facebook, and the others are just for extra chances to win.  The giveaway will be open for just over 1 week and again is Worldwide and Mont Bleu will send the prize directly to the winner upon my choosing..

Cadillacquer Out Of This World

Today we have another Cadillacquer, from one of the newer collections, Love The Music.

Now not only does Madeleine have great taste in TV, she has great taste in songs, some of these are inspired by my favourite songs, and some I couldn't recall off of the top of my head.....Out Of This World as not one of them.

In case you don't know Out Of This World is by Bush and is from the album Golden State (which I actually still have the CD of from back when I can't remember buying it...).  I love love this song, and also loved that it was used in an episode of Buffy (Season 6, Dead Things I think, I could google but if I'm right I will worry about myself..).  Mr Rossdale has such a great voice and is way more than just Gwen Stefanis husband, haha, as I know as lot of people only know him as that.  Anyway, I totally digress and my geek is well out on show tonight...haha!

Anyway my main point from the ramble above is this song is great and you should listen to it now, if you haven't before, and the polish inspired by it is just as good!

OOTW is a plum base with an amazing blue shimmer and if that is not enough, holo too.

This is 1 coat of the Knight and 2 of the polish.

This one, any many others, can be bought from the official site, I have just indulged in some more of the discontinued polishes I am missing  You can also purchase them from Llarowe, Harlow & Co and Rainbow Connection

Thanks for looking <3 xx
