Beauty UK Smokey Lilac with a bit of OPI magic NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 23 - 2011

I liked this delicate combo of Beauty UK’s Smokey Lilac with OPI Golden Rainbow on top.  A dusting of holographic sparkle always goes a long way to brightening my day!

Of course, the Beauty UK polish is a bargainous snip at only £2.49 a bottle, though I believe that OPI’s Golden Rainbow might be a little harder to come by I’m sure that the effect can be reproduced with something like Northern Lights Holographic Top Coat.

The above mani shows three coats of the Beauty UK and a single coat of OPI Golden Rainbow.  Pretty!

What are you wearing on your nails today?

    I love greyed lilac shades like this. Beautiful!

  2. Robyn says:

    I *adore* the smokey lilac polish. It’s one of those ones that you think should cost a bunch more money.

    Lovely colour! My Mum has this polish but unfortunately it turned gloopy straight away :(

  7. That is such a pretty manicure! Today I’m wearing Avon Golden Wine and it’s distinctly passed it’s best after my cleaning efforts this morning. Gorgeous! 😉

  8. So pretty, especially with glittery top coat. I remember eyeing this up at The Clothes show and totally regret going for another colour now! x

    Love the colour with the top glitter coat. They go together so well, and look really great.

    Ooooh so pretty! I’m wearing Mavala’s The ELLE Grey with some glitter just at the tips. x

    I’m wearing Estee Lauder Surreal Violet :) which this reminds me of actually.

    Another similar topcoat is Servin’ Up Sparkle from the Serena Williams Wimbledon collection. The glitter is the same distribution/shape and also holographic. Perhaps the only difference is it’s a little more silver, but I couldn’t say without comparison ..
    Gorgeous manicure!

    (And my current manicure is Orly’s Fowl Play. It has flaky glitter … adore!)
