China Glaze DV8 and Tigger!

by 10:39 AM 10 comments

I was never a fan of Winnie the Pooh. I don't know why. I never liked the cartoon. Pooh was so...I dunno. Piglet annoyed me and Eeyore whinged too much. I did always like Tigger though. I like his attitude. So I thought I would do some nails with a Tigger decal that I have. I quite liked it. The mani chipped super quickly though.

I used China Glaze DV8 with a Tigger decal on each ring finger. I believe these are Kiss decals, although I can't be 100% sure since I bought them off Ebay.

I used 2 coats of DV8, which dries super quickly since its a holo. I do really love this polish. I love holos, I love greens, so this one was always going to be a winner with me. It was really easy to apply, although I have heard that some of the OMG collection were horrible to apply, I have not had this problem with any of the four that I have.

The photos were taken in sunlight no flash(hooray!) except the close up of Tigger, he has flash.

  1. Damn thats pretty! I love these form the OMG collection and DV8 is one of my favorites.

  2. Absolutely love the polish. I must have!!!!!

  3. These swatches of DV8 are so lovely that I really want that colour now! Previous swatches of it I've seen are not nearly as pretty.

    And how could you not like Winnie the Pooh?! I loved the show when I was a kid, I loved Piglet til I learnt he was a boy (but I still couldn't completely shake off my love of him) and I loved Pooh, who was always so sweet and kind. :)

  4. Hi Jessica,
    Nice to chat in real(ish)time for once. Thanks, I love it too. I think DV8 or maybe LOL are my faves.

    Howdy Twister,
    Thank you. I really do think this is a must have polish.

    Piglet is a boy?!?! Lol. I haven't watched it for a while, but the thing that used to annoy me about Pooh is the fact that he was too nice.
    And thanks so much for the swatch compliment.


  5. Love this color and the effect, and it's soooooooooo cute :)

  6. Well I've just bought this CG and to see you pictures, I know I made the good choice XD
    Wonderful on you !!

  7. Lovely mani and I loved Winnie the Pooh as a kid and Tigger was annoying and fabulous all at the same time. I wish I could find those stickers. :)

  8. Hi Liloo,
    Thanks very much! I love it too.

    Hi Saori,
    A very good choice. It's an amazing colour. I don't have anything else like it.

    Hi LWFT&T,
    I think that if I was friends with Tigger, he would annoy me too, but I'm not so he is just straight fabulous for me. I found the stickers on Ebay. I'll see if I can track down the link and will send you an email.


  9. Thank you. I love it too.
