Foxy Paws Just a Meaningless Kiss

What's this then? A blog post! Shocking, I know. I've been keeping to Instagram mainly recently, but this one just needed more than just the one picture, so here I am!

Just a Meaningless Kiss

Just a Meaningless Kiss is from the Foxy Paws 2014 Valentines collection. It's a soft holographic pink with different sizes of black glitter. It has the usual great Foxy Paws formula, spreads evenly and covers well in 2 coats.


In bright light, the polish shows it's beautiful soft side.

This polish is a great mix of the soft baby pink holo and the hard black glitters, I think they go together really well. The baby pink makes for a girly, Valentine-y polish and then the black glitters adds that bit of edge, so it will also work for hardened un-romantics like yours truly!


Close up
If you want to grab this, you'd better hurry up! Unfortunately Foxy Paws is closing down shop for a while, starting on the 1st of february due to unforeseen illness in the immediate family. Let's all hope that it all get's better soon, so we can have our Foxy Fingertips back!

For now, you can buy it right here: Foxy Paws Just a Meaningless Kiss


This product was sent to me for my honest review

November What's In-die Box?


I have been getting the Australian monthly box of surprise indies for a few months now (see the post about the september box here) and I am continuously impressed by the standard of these polishes. They manage to make a good, creative mix while still including colours that appeals to a lot of people.


The November theme is Rock n Roll, and has polishes from Gloss n Sparkle, Bella Belle, Lilypad Lacquers, Peita's Polish and Toya-Jade. For me, it is the first time I try both Bella Belle and Toya-Jade.

First up is Riders on the Storm from Gloss n Sparkle:


A gorgeous grey with glitters in grey and turquoise. It is slightly purple-leaning, but nowhere near as purple as it looks in these pictures. Cheers for that, camera!



This is opaque in 2 coats, and still jelly enough to let the glitters peek through. I love the simple colour mix in this, and it is a lovely neutral-ish polish.

 The bottle shot is much more colour accurate:



Next up is My Blue Suede Shoes by Bella Belle:


A gorgeous blue glitter with so much sparkle, i can't stop staring! Anyone who knows just a little bit about my taste will alread have guessed that this is an instant favourite of mine. Simple, shiny and blue - you just can't go wrong with that! It also comes with a lovely nail polish ring.




Then we have the Lilypad - the brand that has quickly become known for it's gorgeous holographic colours. This is Nothing Else Matters:


 As far as gorgeous holos goes, this one really does not disappoint. It is stunning!



 Next up is Purple Haze by Peita's Polish:


This is a lovely purple glitter topper, and I layered it over Elevation Polish Musala.


It demanded a little bit of dabbing, but wasn't too difficult to get even.



 Last up is Bed of Roses by Toya Jade:


This is a orange-leaning red jelly with various small glitters. I used 3 coats to get it opaque.






What do you think of this months selection of polishes?

You can order What's In-die Box every month from Peita's Polish

Girly Bits: D!ck in a Box and What the Deuce?


Back in September, Girly Bits released their gorgeous fall collection. I really wanted them all, but in the end I settled on the three I wanted most - though I may just have to get a few more at some point. The three i picked were these:

Dancing Phalanges, D!ck in a Box, What the Deuce!


D!ck in a Box and What the Deuce are both holos, and they go so well together, that I decided to pair them up for this mani:

This is in artificial light, but the holographic effect is still quite visible.

I just love the play of colour in the holo in D!ck in a Box!

Close up - full of awesome! Now, if only these babies could get a bit of sun to play with *glares at winter*

I got my Girly Bits from Foxy Fingertips here in Europe, but they are also available from Girly Bits' own site.
