Bikini2

Dior Bikini is a dusty spicy orange creme that applies smoothly and is opaque in two coats. No issues to report. Shown in various lighting with two coats and a top coat.

Color Club Sparkle and Soar 2

Sparkle and Soar is a beautiful golden orange! I love love love this one, for some reason I always grab for orange polishes like this during the summer. Usually I gravitate towards a couple of Zoya polishes but this might take their place! The formula was nice, a little sheer though. I used 3 coats for the photos.

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!

Creamsicle

Bliss is This 029

True Love reminds me of a creamscicle. It is a creamy soft orangey peach. The formula is a cross between jelly and creme. A ‘hybrid’ if you will. It is very pretty and flowed nicely on the nail in three coats. This is my favorite of the three. This is the Chanel June dupe.

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

Ombre Gradient Nails

GradientNails01

I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polishes in Sun Kissed and Green With Envy. I applied them following this tutorial. I sponged the colours on twice today which has given better results than last time – I think the graduation is more subtle and there’s less evidence that I even used a sponge because you can’t see so many sponge marks like last time!

Mango

I started with a base of Two effortless coats of Sation’s Bump in Beige, which is my perfect mannequin hands “crelly”(jelly-creme). Then I applied Two easy coats of One and only Orange by Sation. This is a NEON Tangerine Orange. I’ve been craving neons lately so this color could not have come in at a better time. My camera was all “DO NOT WANT!” lool I’m sure you guys get the picture. This is BRIGHT! On my ring finger nail I did a gradient using Sammy’s tutorial using OAOO and Sation’s Fan the Flames Fuchsia. Don’t worry, I will have swatches of all these Sation colors soon. I topped my ring fingers off with a coat of INM Northern Lights. On the rest of my nails I did a topper of Windestine’s Asbestos which is a White micro glitter in a clear base.

Graveyard

Spooky Halloween Graveyard Nail Art 4

To get this look: Base: Sally Hansen Firey Island Gradient: Sally Hansen Lightening, Sally Hansen Firey Island, and Essie Shearling Darling; use tiny pieces of make up sponge to add lighter and darker areas and get them to blend into one another.  Moon: OPI My Vampire is Buff Silhouette: Cult Nails Nevermore Top Coat: KBShimmer Clearly On Top and Essie Matte About You

The season

20141026 lacquer legion halloween 33

My base polishes are the two shades in the Morgan Taylor Halloween Collection. The set includes Little Black Dress (a great black!) and a crazy bright orange called Orange Crush. I used a fine art brush to create the jack-o-lanterns, skulls, spiders and bats and teeny dotting tools to make the dots.

I also introduced a new light source and used a different lens for these pics. Why? Because I’m never satisfied and always tinkering with my setup. I’m not sure if I like it. We’ll see!

Anyway, the polishes I used in this look are:

 Super Black 3rd Degree 1

Hello polished friends and happy Saturday!  I have four polishes from a new-to-me indie brand to share today: Super Black Handmade Lacquers.  First off, I was super impressed by the packaging and presentation…such a great look!  Plus, the polishes are great!

First up is Super Black 3rd Degree, a shimmering golden orange-red.  This is two easy coats.  I’m seeing lots of orange-reds like this for the holidays and winter, and I’m loving it.  I think this will work on more skin tones than a traditional red-red!

Yin-Yang

Now onto today’s post… I finally filmed a nail art tutorial!! O: I know, it’s been way too long! I’ve really been into yin-yang nail art lately and it’s such an easy design I figured I’d put my little twist on it and share with you all how I did it, I hope you like it!
