Jade Diamond Twist

Happy Monday to my lovely readers!

I'm so sorry my posts have been a bit sporadic recently, to tell the truth I've just been completely exhausted since I got back from my trip. I mean like, can't keep awake past 8pm kind of tired. I don't know what's been wrong with me but I had a really nice and restful weekend so I'm feeling a bit better now.

Also, I've just got a MacBook Pro when I'm used to a PC and it's kicking my butt! I feel like I can't do anything on it, it's a big learning curve I wasn't quite expecting! Anyway, I have all my pictures and documents loaded to it now so hopefully I'm on the up now. Anyone else have this problem? How long will it take for me to get used to it??

Anyway, enough of the chat and some time for photo's of nails!

This mani I wore for St Patrick's Day yesterday. I fully meant to do some nail art with a pot of gold and a rainbow but alas that didn't materialise and the polish is easily gorgeous enough on stand on it's own 2 feet!

I was lucky enough to receive this beauty from my friend Tracy who is part of my birthday club. Jade Twist is one of the Jade Diamond collection. It is described as a blue /Turquoise duo-chrome, I have to say that in the bottle it did look green which is why I chose it. On the nail it really did have a nice duo-chrome going on, flashes of purple and the glass fleck finish is just stunning. I really liked it on it's own and I can't wait to try the others I have, I think I need the whole collection.

For this mani I used 3 coats of Jade Twist and a coat of HK Girl topcoat. I thought this would be a stainer but when i took it off last night nothing, such a bonus.


Just because I haven't posted any pics of Miagi lately i thought I'd share. This is what I was up to last week, luckily I have a little companion who is more than happy to keep me company!


  1. lovely colour, and nice to see Miagi helping you to rest, just love a cuddly cat xxx

    1. I know Debbie, he is just the most lovely to cuddle to! x

  2. Such an amazing, vibrant colour! x

    1. Thanks Char. I was really surprised that the duochrome showed up on the nail. I actually think it is better on the nail than in the bottle and that doesn't happen often!

  3. Very pretty polish! I think it's good that I don't run across Jade in stores--I'd buy way too much from them. :)

    1. Thanks Karen. I soooo wish I could see them in stores, they are a great brand. Problem is i'd be there staring like a mad woman! lol.


Thanks so much for commenting. I took off the annoying verification thing so I thought I better add some moderation to avoid spam messages, you know what the internet is like!

Anyway, it's great to get comments and I'll verify them as soon as they get to me.
