Happy Birthday

Kissy3

Zoya Kissy has a reddish-pink tinted base with lots of bright pink/red shimmer and pink and holo tinsel/bar glitter pieces. It went on well and I didn’t have to pick at the bar glitters TOO much afterwards. It is pretty top coat hungry so I ended up using one coat of Gelous and two coats of Poshe.

Hot SF winter

OPI Embarca Dare Ya! is a magenta with a hot pink shimmer. Shown above is two coats, and just like the other two, it applied easily and flawlessly. This is a great Autumn pink!

Opals

 Darling Diva Rose Opal 5

The Opal Collection is made up of 7 new shades of jelly flakies that can be layered or worn alone. In order to suspend the flakes and iridescent glitters and holo shimmer goodness, they are a bit thicker than a regular topper, which is why they build to opacity in 2 to 3 coats (most in 2 coats) and I would recommend layering the lighter shades (Opal and Blue Opal). I had no issues with formula or application on any of them! You will need to excuse my ravaged cuticles though. When “winter weather” actually makes it to South Texas my cuticles are the first thing to revolt.

Darling Diva Polish Rose Opal. This one is a bright violet pink and I’ve worn it alone with 2 coats for opacity and one coat of top coat.

I filled an empty bottle just over 3/4 full of Crystaline Opal, then added in a half teaspoon of BeBe pigment and approx. 1 tablespoon of the hot pink glitter.

Dodge & Burn

For this… I pretty much experimented with adding and subtracting nail polish. A good thick layer of black to start and then a few colors from the Color Club Poptastic collection. It started with Chelsea Girl (blue) and Wham! Pow! (orange). Then got a layer of Twiggie (green). Then Chelsea Girl and Wharhol (pink). And then acetone and a paintbrush!

Shocking

Today I have a blogger collaboration piCture pOlish color to share with you – Shocked, created with Claire of Shatter Me Claire. Shocked is a gorgeous pink jelly polish with holographic shards in it. I have to confess, the little irregularly shaped holo shards is my very favorite PP finish – I am obsessed with it!! I want ALL of them! Take a peek at how beautiful this polish is and the nail art I did inspired by Claire’s blog name below.

KB Shimmer Beach Please borders on neon magenta pink. This is so close to being a neon, but thankfully it photographs better than neons do, so you can get a real idea of what it looks like. This is two coats.

Fish Egg Friday

FishEggNails

This picture was never actually meant to be posted. I decided to try the “fish egg” look a couple weeks ago and took this picture just to show some friends and my mom.

However, after I started seeing these “Fish Egg Friday” posts going up around the nail blogs, I wanted to join in. I support my fellow bloggers and it’s irritating to see companies attack them for ridiculous purposes. (Not to mention, it’s kind of just plain stupid on their part if they understand the blogging community at all.)

Cowgirl Up On Steroids

This is one coat of Speciallità – Atena over two coats of China Glaze – Cowgirl Up. A dreamy combination, isn’t it? I’m in love. The red-purple glow from Cowgirl Up combined with the amazing prismatic sparkles from Atena.. it’s almost too hot to handle!  

Mardi Gras

I want to share some crazy nails I created using the JulieG Mardis Gras Collection. This set includes six blingy, mega-glitters that give you a textured, jewel encrusted look without topcoat, or a super glittery finish with topcoat.

To get this look, I took a small nail art brush and dabbed on each of the six colors in a random pattern. It took two passes to get everything opaque. I didn’t worry about creating a gradient between shades, nor was I going for crisp lines. You could say this was sort of an experiment. But I LOVE how it came out! It’s definitely not for the faint of heart. I wore this out to run errands (on only one hand…LOL) and got stopped everywhere I went!

Rainbow Honey

Hi guys! Today I have a double whammy for you – some swatches of some popular polishes from Rainbow Honey, and an overview of the latest obsession, HK Girl Glisten and Glow Super Shiny, Fast Drying Top Coat. I have heard so many amazing things about this top coat, so I decided to put it to the test by pairing it with some chunky glitter polishes from Rainbow Honey. You’ll find my opinion about the top coat at the bottom of this post! Let’s get started with the polishes:

Let’s start with this gorgeous unreleased glitter topper called Papillon. This polish is going to be part of Rainbow Honey’s spring collection, I believe. It is packed with girly pink holographic glitters and irridescent purple glitters in a bunch of different sizes, and even some holographic butterfly glitters as well! I am not usually attracted to girly polishes, but this one really caught my eye. I loved this combo with a dark pink base as well. Shown is two coats of Papillon over Julep Evelyn.
