pic’n’mix like it’s 1994

Hey there! Hope you are all well. I don’t often do nail posts yet it’s one of the things I try and keep up the most – I feel more confident if my nails are beautiful! Anyway, I don’t have any amazing Konad skills or particularly good painting skills and a lot of you put me to shame but I have a lot of respect for a good nail varnish!

I’ve been after OPI’s My Private Jet for a little while – yet aware of all the controversy. I’d love to own the original version of this but haven’t found it anywhere and don’t think I ever will, so I delved deep into my own nail varnish bag and tried to come up with something similar, just to satisfy my cravings for now. Mine is much more purple than brownish and it’s not holo but I like it just as much 🙂 It’s obviously not exactly the same but it’s a good cheap dupe and I likes it!

First I painted GOSH Purple Heart, then GOSH Vanilla Ice, then just because I cannot say no to glitter – a coat of GOSH Magic Star. I love it! I have to say, i’m seriously impressed with GOSH’s staying power, I’ve been using their polishes for a while and I think they’re probably the best thing in GOSH’s line. I’m really pleased with the way this came out and I shall carry on pic’n’mixing my nail varnish layers! Edit – I actually wrote this last night but i’ve been at work on the tills all day today and I had not one, but two ladies – actually two(!) ask me if my nail varnish was OPI! They actually name dropped OPI, I was surprised too!

I know, I know, it’s nearly summer, why am I rocking dark dark nails? Ahhhhh who plays by those rules? Uh, that’s about as likely as me playing by someone else’s rules besides my own. Which I would never do. I play by my own rules, nobody else’s, not even my own. (props go to you if you get the quote reference!)

Lots of love, Z xox
