Etta can best be described as a vampy cabernet with a hint of violet micro pearl.

Alia is really pretty, good formula, no running or pooling, as this is a jelly and wearable in different coat levels, I did two for my photos and there are three on my swatch stick.

Etta is a stunner, I love the browny flash undertone, good formula, no running or pooling and opaque in two coats, Etta did stamp but probably best over a lighter colour.

Last pics are of my weekend mani, I did some hidden stamping over a pair of Fancy Glosses, on my left hand I had Cosmic Candy and my right hand was Purple Confetti both two coats each, then stamping with Zoya Iris over Cosmic Candy and Savita over Purple Confetti, they matched really well.

Cosmic Candy is a tri-thermal going from black (cold) periwinkle blue (warm) to pink (hot) jam packed with multi-coloured flakies.

Purple Confetti is a purple (cold) to white (hot) thermal also jam packed with flakies.

I wasnt able to post for a few days as I was fighting a bad migraine attack since Saturday, migraine finally left last night, abortives were not working neither were painkillers. I think the weather and pressure changes had a hand in this one.


  1. These are both nice and I do like a Jelly from time to time. And loving weekend mani too :-D

    Hope you are feeling better now. It has been so warm in Scotland these last 5 or 6 days. I cannot take the heat well at all

    1. Yeah finally feeling ok, head isnt quite happy, think its the barometric pressure changes.
