Blueberry Swirl

Blueberry swirl 4

I started off with two coats of China Glaze At Vase Value, followed by one coat of Seche Vite.

Using the polish brushes, I placed some random blobs of China Glaze Crimson and At Vase Value.

Using a plastic bag, I pressed it onto my nail and twisted it a bit to swirl the polishes.  I finished with one coat of Seche Vite.

Black and White with Glit...

Day07 02

I used W7 Cosmic Black – a black jelly packed with Silver glitter – as a base. Then I took a sponge and used it to apply W7 Cosmic Mauve from the tips. Then I added some Wet n Wild White to the mix but because it’s not very opaque, it gave it a milky look. Finally I used a little more Cosmic Mauve right on the tips and used about 3 coats of NYC Top Coat to smooth things over!

Violet is the last color I am sharing with you from the polishes I’ve sampled from this line.  This was super hard to capture correctly, as my camera tends to hate purple shades.  But I got this pic which I think is accurate and gorgeous.  I love the shimmer in this color, there’s definitely some hidden pink hues trying to peek out!  Plus you can’t beat that shine.

to the max

I have the last polish in the Cult Nails Divas and Drama Collection for you today, Seduction. This polish is a simply gorgeous purple/red jelly base absolutely filled with red, blue and pink iridescent flakies.

I made dots with Fashion Addict (unfortunately I don’t have a holographic version of this beauty ) and a dotting tool. Easy and quick.

Tip fix

Definite tip wear! So typically when this happens, I take the polish off and put a new one on… but I just wasn’t ready to part with Carly!

Bar, hex and square glitters in lots of fun colors including turquoise, lavender, chartreuse and purple in a clear base.

Taboo?

Boots no7 galaxy 1 

I heard this polish is a dupe of Chanel Taboo, so naturally that made me go out and buy it! Unfortunately I don’t have Taboo to show you a comparison, but it really is very similar! 

Boots No 7 Galaxy is a deep black-purple base (looks more maroon coloured in the bottle) full of red, copper and purple shimmer. I don’t know whether I’d call it an out and out dupe, it seems to be SLIGHTLY more red toned in the bottle, but on the nail I can’t really see any difference.

Dandy Nails Make It Realis chock full of gold microglitter and medium gold hexagon glitter pieces, all in a purple shimmer suspension base. It’s opaque in two to three coats or can be layered over a purple-based “underwear.”

It’s one of those violet purple colors that is so hard for me to capture, so I’m showing you what it looks like in natural light and indoors in artificial light. You won’t have any trouble telling the difference. LOL! First, natural light…I was already wearing the new Zoya Carly, so I used that as my “underwear” but it really doesn’t need anything under it.

China Glaze Put a Bow On It is made up of fuchsia microglitter. This is two thick coats and if you look closely, you can still see some bare spots near the tips of my nails. I would recommend either layering this over a similar base color or doing three careful coats.

Fish Egg Friday

Fish Egg Friday

Because I already did a mixed manicure I decided to go with just one color and it looks like I made an Ombre Fish Egg Mani. I actually didn’t even remove my last Leopard mani, so I just applied a fresh coat of matching base color and sprinkle the beads on. I didn’t add any top coat because I remove it right after I took pictures. You can see a list of polish I used under the pictures… I know it’s not perfect, because it was made in just couple of minutes but you get the idea.
