Mecca Cosmetica Girl's Best Friend and my Twilight Christmas tree!

Lastnight I mentioned that I purchased the Mecca Cosmetica girl's best friend nail set which includes two very pretty nail polish shades: Diamond and Shine. Despite appearing like a cream formula from afar, they actually have a very subtle and pretty shimmer to them:

Onto the swatches! I tried Shine first which is this bold barbie like pink:

Isn't that just gorgeous? And even in natural light it's just as eye catching:

This is going to be a delight to wear this summer. It reminds me of the poolside polishes from China Glaze. So bright!

Ah the purple (Diamond). Even though it's quite light and almost lilacish it's still stunning. I honestly don't know which one I like better.

Hmm I think the pink wins for me. Diamond is also very pretty but Shine is outstanding! And while I'm on the subject of pretty purples, I thought I'd share my Christmas tree which is almost complete (still needs pretty lights). Yes I was completely inspired by the Myer twilight tree (no, not the movie, the colours of twilight which now that I think about it, doesn't really bring purples to mind but anyway)...

So I only have a little 4ft tree but I'm not even going to be here for Christmas day. I'll try to take another shot when it's lit up at night :-) Well I have some exciting holiday posts coming up so I better get cracking! Until next time...


  1. Beautiful post :D i’m new on blogger :D if you want to follow me i’ll follow you back :D xoxo

  2. i love them! they remind me of barbie colours. the purple looks sooo pretty. Ive never heard of that brand before (but i do live in the uk, so that probably explains it!) lol x

  3. Yeah they remind me of barbie colours also! It's an Australian brand and while the online site doesn't ship internationally, you can phone order their Mecca branded stuff and have it shipped overseas :-)
