 FUN Lacquer Christmas 2013 Wishing Star007

How lucky I am to be able to show you some FUN Lacquer today!! I’d been admiring the Princess Collection from afar so when I was offered the chance to review the Christmas collection I jumped at it. I’m pleased with every single one of them! Let’s take a look! 

FUN Lacquer Wishing Star a yellow thermal polish with gold shimmer. A bright sunshine yellow in it’s cold state, and it’s an icy pale yellow with shifts from gold, to green to blue when it’s warm. Three coats needed with this one for opacity. I couldn’t resist showing off Wishing Star with Decentber tips. Such an unconventional french, right?

Yellow gold

Nostalgia swatch for blog0

I Love Nail Polish Nostalgia, 2 coats  An incredibly unique Ultra Chrome effect that gives this polish a festive green, gold, and red color shift. My swatches really do not do this justice, in fact I’m not extremely excited about these swatches because the polish is really just so much more amazing in person.

NO SPOILERS!

I haven’t finished the series yet – I’m so behind! – but this amazing nail art gives nothing away…

Breaking bad nail art

I’ve chosen to do a recreation of a Heisenberg sketch done supposedly by the Mexican cartel but in a Warhol style. I’ve actually tried to find out who has done the sketch but no one knows.

IridescentEye2

Today I’m going to be showing you all a Chanel Peridot dupe by Jessica called Iridescent Eye! Jessica is a brand I hadn’t heard of until recently and I was surprised to find is quite affordable.  You can pick up Iridescent Eye and many other Jessica polishes at Ninja Polish for $5.00 to $6.00!

Highlighter

Unlike Essie Funky Limelight, there’s no green in Celtic Sun at all so it’s not quite as perfectly highlighter yellow but it’s close (and it’s definitely a neon, I’m not sure what your computer screen is showing this color as but it’s a neon yellow).

Glass Fleck Water Marble

I used Color Club Daisy Does It as my base and marbled with Color Club Daisy Does It, Color Club Wing Fling, Color Club Sparkle and Soar and Color Club Fly With Me. I’ll have swatches of the collection sometime in the next week or so, I gotta say…it’s pretty awesome!

Brazilian Rainbows!

OPI Brazil Textures Rainbow Nail Art Nailart009 

OK, you all know I love texture polishes so these shades included in the OPI Brazil collection were a treat. The only problem? They are minis :( I wanted to show off each shade while creating a fun nail design…take a look!

I would never have the patience for this!

Welp, finally done did it.  Full on rhinestones, no mucking about.  Maya sent in a request a few weeks ago for a tutorial on how to do the full-cover bling nails, so I went for it with the first round of colors from a new wheel (for the record, it took about 2/3 of one of those wheel pockets to cover); turns out the colors were very Irish!  You’ll also note that one of the yellows snuck into the bed of gold stones, so that’s a fun little accident that hopefully only I notice in real life. These are actually pretty easy, aside from being time consuming.  I used clear polish for this, but you can use any color that will work for you; if you’re not packing them really tightly together just pull something that’s a little matchy (or not!) with your stone color.

To get you in the spirit of today’s holiday, here are two looks!

Hunger Games Inspired

This first design is my interpretation of the fire nail design that Katniss is given to represent her “Girl on Fire” persona. It might sound silly but when they mentioned Katniss getting nail art, I felt a little giddy inside!

I used this amazing flame mani by Jane from Nailside as a guide and started with a base of yellow and then sponged on a sheer neon red colour to create a gradient. I then freehanded the outline of the flames using a striper brush.

Poisonous Dots Nail Art

Poisonous Dots 3

I dotted on various size dots in Barry M Acid Yellow and China Glaze Pink Voltage, but didn’t seal with a top coat, so the dotty texture would remain. I love it! Most fun nails I’ve worn in ages!
