Testing out a new look because my other one was simple. Might change it up from time to time to keep it interesting.
Hope you like it.
So, continuing on with my nail polish trends, I bring to you Fuchsia
It’s a bright, sassy colour that is great for vibrant, coloured candy outfits or what I prefer fuchsia against black.
The nail polishes listed above from left to right are:
Butter London offer Disco Biscuit for $14 and be bought directly off their website for people living in Canada, UK or the US. For Australian customers, you can try Adore Beauty, Kleins Perfumery, Green Organics, Peachy Clean for $22, Honey Honey for $19.80 or Skincare Store for $19.95 – this was the cheapest I could find.
MAC offer Toco Toucan for US$16 direct off their website. Unfortunately it wasn’t available on the Australian MAC website but you can always go to your local Myer to the beauty counter to see if they have this. I also couldn’t find the nail polish at local beauty websites and Amazon had it for $29.
Nails Inc. offers Notting Hill Gate for £11 directly off their website but only ships to the UK and Ireland. I did manage to find other shipping options for US and Australian customers from Sephora for US$9.50 and Beauty Bay for Au$15.40.
Here are some other cool finds that might tickle your fancy.
Essie offer Flirty Fuchsia which I think is brilliant because it’s a neon Hot Pink. I found this on Amazon from store AVEYOU Beauty for US$8. I could not find any local Australian stores that stock this shade of nail polish. Essie is an American brand.
Barry M offers Shocking Pink which can be bought from their website for £2.99 which is approx. AU$4.60. They do offer international shipping when emailed. Another in your face colour with a casual outdoor outfit. Fun for the beach!
China Glaze offer 108 Degrees from the Island Escape Collection and is a deep pink nail polish with glitter. The glitter is hard to see in the pic. I like this shade as it borders on a reddy, rosey colour as well. Found this for $2.35 on Amazon seller My Beauty Smart. It is also available at My Beauty Halls for $8 and $5.99 from Sally Beauty.
Ok, I am a totes sucker for presentation. I love how this bottle of nail polish looks. This is on offer from Filthy Gorgeous London for £9. This I also found from Blue Banana for the same price. It is part of their 3D collection and it meant to sparkle and dazzle with a crystalized effect. Looks very flashy and shimmery and I think it’s perfect for going out for a girl’s night out!
Rimmel offer Funtime Fuchsia from their 60 seconds range. In Australia, it will mention where to buy it but no online options. You can check out your local pharmacy, Priceline, KMart, Target and Big W for approx. AU$7.95. For UK customers, I managed to find Chemist Direct for £3.39, Superdrug for £3.69 and Clockwork Pharmacy for £4.69. I think Rimmel is a reliable brand and who doesn’t want their nail polish coats only taking 1 minute to dry. It is a solid fuchsia colour with a matte finish.
Zoya offer Kimber from their Surf Collection range for $8 directly from their site for US customers only. This is meant to be a beachy colour and offers a hint of glitter through the deep fuchsia. mBeauty Lounge offer international shipping and sell this product for $6.60. I like this nail polish for the hints of gold/yellow sparkle that tints the fuchsia making it dainty in appearance. Different take on the glittery fuchsia.
So this is the 2nd part of my nail polish series for upcoming trends in 2012.
I tried to go with neon and glittery fuchsias to pizazz up your nails coming from summer into Autumn.It’s not a colour for everyone but does suit all skin tones depending on the depth of colour you choose.
Please feel free to hit me up for any requests.

7 random facts about me
I work for an internet company and can’t afford to study full time to become a Vet Nurse because I have a mortgage.
I collect perfumes and have over 50 of them.
I find beauty in most things such as an old couple holding hands, a teacup pig, the clouds in the sky, the smell of rain, cats hugging one another whilst sleeping etc. I could go on but the list would be way too long
Whenever I feel down, I think to myself that someone else has it worse off so I remember to be thankful for what I have.
I have been best friends with my oldest friend since I was 10 years old. That makes it 18 years so far.
I wasn’t really into fashion until maybe a year ago. Funny right?
I love my life right now and the people in it and am glad to be blogging to socialize with more people.
So, that was a really hard task. Choosing 15 bloggers to showcase was tough. I really wanted to give you a mixture rather than all fashion blogs.
Thank you for taking the time to nominate me Lalalinee. Thank you all for reading my blog!
