I couldn’t help myself… I had some unposted swatches of some gorgeous polishes and figured I’d share them in a spam post. 🙂

First up, a-England’s Elaine. Stunning, regal, elegant. A perfect purple creme, with an incredible high shine – like the rest of this collection. I adore a-England.

Elaine became the base for this stunning glitter, from Aphrodite Lacquers’ Friday Night Glitter Bombs Collection (previously reviewed here, here ,here, and here), Velvet Rope.

Isn’t this beautiful? Here is one more photo as the sun was setting:

One of the most gorgeous OPIs (in my humble opinion) from the Muppets collection was Wocka Wocka, a rich, deep, cool-hued red with a multi-chromatic shimmer. I wish I wore this colour more often because I adore it.

Wocka Wocka became the base for another Aphrodite Lacquers Glitter Bomb:  Catfight, just reviewed yesterday in a jelly sandwich. 🙂

Finally, one of my summery go-to colours from OPI, Miami Beet, a beautiful deep berry creme, became the base for Aphrodite’s Pre-Party, a sheer pink polish base with color changing shimmer that goes from pink to coppery gold, and multiple different pink, black, and white glitters.

Here is one of it in the shade… I love the shimmer reflecting off this.

Most of these OPI colours are still available at fine salons, and Aphrodite Lacquers can be found on Aphrodite’s Etsy shop.  And don’t forget to follow Aphrodite Lacquers on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news!

Today I have for you another jelly sandwich! This one was photographed in the fall but I didn’t get a chance to post it with all of the things that have been going on lately (my big move)….

You may remember my adoration of the Zoya Gloss trio, a collection of perfect jellies that I cannot get enough of (see more here and here!). In this mani, I used Zoya Katherine, along with one of my favourite indie brands, Aphrodite Lacquers…. squished together in a jam-like polish. 🙂

Catfight was from Aphrodite’s Friday Night Glitter Bombs Collection released in early September, and described as a sheer red polish, with a pinkish purple shimmer, and multiple different red, black, and white glitters. It’s gorgeous in its bottle – a deep red jelly glitter. Instead of wearing this alone, I decided to layer this polish between coats of Zoya Katherine, a deep aubergine jelly in the highest shine, glossy formula I have ever seen.

It looks slightly sheer in the bright sun, but in the shade, below, you can see the depth and high shine of this combo. I just LOVE how this is bordering on the edge of both vampy and glittery…  And did you see that slight purple shimmer?

I believe Zoya Katherine is still available at Zoya.com as well as Nail Polish Canada and anywhere else Zoya is sold. Unfortunately Catfight may now be a HTF polish as it seems to be sold out on Aphrodite Lacquers’ Etsy shop, but keep an eye on her shop, Facebook page and on Twitter for the latest updates!

Do you love jellies as much as I do? 🙂
