Peachy

Today’s mani is all about the colour peach! I used three coats of Barry M – Peach Melba on most nails and Catrice – I Scream Peach! for some accent nails. The circles are from Konad plate m65 and I stamped with Konad Special Nail Polish in White.

I used a silver LA Colors polish and the Blue Years Eve to make double dots.    This pics don’t show it very well but the LA Colors and Blue Years Eve are both really glittery and gorgeous.  They go really well together.  What do you think?

Red Queen Astatine is the most duochrome polish in this collection. The color you see in the bottle is generally how the other polishes look, with their respective color undertone (in the other pics, the bottle is tilted so you can see the shimmer). Red Queen Astatine is a white shimmer polish with a reddish-purple undertone. On the nail, Red Queen Astatine changes from orange to red to purple. This polish is named for the 85th element, astatine. The photos above show this polish layered over black.

Simple and pretty

This is one of my favorite colors.

According to the website, Lotus is a “very soft, dusty blue-toned amethyst purple with colorful shimmer that reflects pink, red and gold.” I LOVE the shimmer- it really does change depending on the light!

Peacocky

Peacocky is sure to be a hit with you guys! It is a multicolored jewel glitter topcoat with red, pink, gold, and blue glitter in it. For this swatch, I layered two coats of Peacocky over OPI Rumple’s Wiggin. It is a very dense glitter and a lot of fun! No application problems — it just went on smoothly for a bit of instant bling.

I love this blog – she mixes up new, creative polishes – so fun! I’ve got a few spotlights on her coming up, so hold on to your hat :)

I used NYC Clear, Pure Ice Electric, and fine purple glitter from INM. I poured about half each of clear and Electric into an empty bottle, and added about one tablespoon of INM glitter.

If you love pink then you will love this collection! The polishes are a cute tribute to Minnie Mouse and Disney fans. They all had great application, including Nothin’ Mouse ‘Bout It, which was a lot thicker than I imaged. I really love the glitter because its very versatile and can be used with our without the hearts, so its not a deal breaker if you don’t like hearts. Overall the set is fun and very girly. My favorites from the collection are The Color of Minnie and Nothin’ Mouse ‘Bout It!

Grape jelly

This polish is a beautiful sheer shimmery purple jelly base with green hex, blue micro, and lavender bar glitter. The color combination reminds me of one of my favorite gemstones, lepidolite.

Twenty Ten is small square red glitter, microfine and small blue hex glitter in a sheer black base. This color was one of my first ever made, it has had a few versions over the last couple of years and I am quite happy with this final one.

The base is a very sheer black so you will need 3 coats for a squishy look, or apply 1 coat over a black base color for a more solid dark black look.

For your viewing pleasure today though is Models Own Indian Ocean from the new Beetlejuice collection, over CG Four Leaf Clover. I really liked it – even though it’s nothing like Aqua Lily, because FLC for some reason went really green with the Models Own over it (it’s still turquoise around the edges where it didn’t get coated…weird, given the MO is blue-based).

Electric Cinder

This color is so amazing and so is the photograph!

I choose Orly Rock Candy to pair with OM’s “Cinder” pigment. Cinder is a dark smoky black with teeny tiny purple glitter flecks. This was actually the second franken I made with Cinder…the first being a FAIL. Not a huge fail, but still not what I wanted, and these pigments are so darn pretty they deserve nothing less than a 100% effort on my part! Rock Candy was a wise choice, and I only needed about a teaspoon of Cinder pigment.
