Whoa.

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

Happy Birthday

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.

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.

Shades

 Shades of Phoenix Were All Mad Here IMG 9710

Here’s a polish I knew I had to buy the moment I saw it – Shades of Phoenix’s We’re All Mad Here, inspired by the colours of the Cheshire Cat from the Disney version of Alice in Wonderland.

I’ve always loved Lewis Carroll – Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are such timeless books. I’ve been re-reading them since I was about 7. They never get old.

Wing Dust Waking Dream Swatch 2

Wing Dust Waking Dream is a dark purple jelly with pink, red and silver glitter, including hexes, circles, stars, and tiny hair glitter. It also has a very subtle shimmer, but it’s not very noticeable on the nails. I do love how dark and dreamy this one is – a classic Wing Dust! Application was good, but I recommend two coats of top coat (or Gelous) to smooth out the glitter. This was 3 coats.

Dazzle Holiday

China Glaze Dash of Dazzle Nail Art 2

For a fun, festive look, I decided to do a simple skittlette. I used all three polishes from the China Glaze Dash of Dazzle set, plus OPI My Vampire is Buff, and a plain black polish. I love how easy it was to do, and it’s such a great look for a holiday party!

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.
