Collection 2000 Hello Sailor! August 22, 2009

I realised that although you’ve seen this Konaded in an earlier post, I’ve never put up a proper swatch of it, and I really feel I should because this is my absolute favourite EVER polish.  I saw on Glittermillie’s blog that she has recently bought and swatched Boots 17 Peacock, and I reckon that it is Hello Sailor!’s twin…HEREis her post about Peacock, and you can see some pictures of Hello Sailor! below.

Isn’t it lovely?  I totaly love it to pieces!  Speaking of pieces, see the awful mess my fingers are in?!  That’s a combination of, as mentioned in my other post, dry chapped skin as a result of too much hand washing this week, and a very brutal manicure i gave myself after I took the last lot of polish off.  Too trigger happy with the cuticle trimmers 😦  I also have a crack across one of my nails like I did when I reviewed Streamer for the first time, which will probably end up getting trimmed out this time since my nails are all still very short, I’ll just keep them that way till it has been trimmed out.  I don’t know how I do it, I really don’t!


Thanks for reading!  😀

  1. Oh it is definitely very similar! I love those kind of colours 🙂

  2. I can easily see why this polish is a favorite. It’s a dreamy and effervescent blue!

    Gorgeous color on you. Love it! Shame about your cracked nails. Have you tried Orly’s Nail Rescue. I read about it on All Lacquered Up. Michelle has used it for cracks and other nail things. You put some kind on bonder on your nail and dip it in this powder. Then I guess you buff it. Seems to look like a good thing to have. I need to get some to use of my nails that are peeling. Try it.

      I have recently got some Nails Inc hardner which seems to be for cracked, flaking/splitting nails so I will give that a try first. It’s difficult for me to get Orly over here 😦

    Thank you so much for your help with the fauxnad plates! I had no idea there was a plastic film on the plates but once I took it off, they worked beautifully! I bought them several months ago and I was really discourage because they wouldn’t stamp but I’m so excited to play with them now. Thank you, again! Can’t wait to check out your blog!

      You’re welcome, I didn’t figure out that they were covered either, I tried a couple of times to use them and then had an almighty strop that I couldn’t get them to work. My husband took them off me to see if the designs were properly etched….and said “you do realise they have a covering on don’t you?” D’oh! Glad to help! Happy Fauxnadding!
