Oh, Spiderman

Spiderman collection 070

Just Spotted the Lizard is a gold and green duochrome. I’ll say it once and I’ll say it again. I love an affordable dupe to an expensive polish. With that said, this is a dupe of Chanel Peridot. Very pretty and interesting color for any collection, and the formula was great too, three easy coats for full coverage.

Today I have two amazing polishes from Dandy Nails on Etsy! This is two coats of Dandy Nails Parallel Universe with one coat of top coat. My photo doesn’t show the duo color as much as I would like, but this is a pretty aqua/lavender duo chrome polish! You can see the hint of lavender on the outer edges of my nails! It went on flawlessly.

Red Queen Astatine is the most duochrome polish in this collection. The color you see in the bottle is generally how the other polishes look, with their respective color undertone (in the other pics, the bottle is tilted so you can see the shimmer). Red Queen Astatine is a white shimmer polish with a reddish-purple undertone. On the nail, Red Queen Astatine changes from orange to red to purple. This polish is named for the 85th element, astatine. The photos above show this polish layered over black.

For your viewing pleasure today though is Models Own Indian Ocean from the new Beetlejuice collection, over CG Four Leaf Clover. I really liked it – even though it’s nothing like Aqua Lily, because FLC for some reason went really green with the Models Own over it (it’s still turquoise around the edges where it didn’t get coated…weird, given the MO is blue-based).

Electric Cinder

June01035

This color is so amazing and so is the photograph!

I choose Orly Rock Candy to pair with OM’s “Cinder” pigment. Cinder is a dark smoky black with teeny tiny purple glitter flecks. This was actually the second franken I made with Cinder…the first being a FAIL. Not a huge fail, but still not what I wanted, and these pigments are so darn pretty they deserve nothing less than a 100% effort on my part! Rock Candy was a wise choice, and I only needed about a teaspoon of Cinder pigment.

Essie 006

I want to start reviewing entire nail polish collections as the come out! So today I am reviewing the Essie fall collection.

Amazing holo

Mutagen – green multi chrome metallic. The base colour is rich green that changes into dark green, gold, brown-green, blue and purple. When I put my nail into a bowl of water, the colours were changing into blue, orange and pink. I’ve applied one coat of Mutagen over black but two coats by themselves are opaque. The colour is slightly streaky an dries fast.

Dollish Polish Looking For My Mr

Looking For My Mr. Big is a violet with a beautiful duo-chrome, flashing from Violet to Blue and linear holo pattern! The holo in this was pretty subtle but it was more noticeable in real life than it came out in my photos. The formula was the same as it was for Master Chief, I used 3 coats for the photos below!

This is another collection that I’m way behind on posting, but I’ve been getting a lot done around here so I’m finally ready to share it. The OPI San Francisco collection should still be out and available in stores now and you should definitely be able to find it online if you are looking!

OPI Muir Muir on the Wall is a very pretty duochrome that shifts mostly from purple to green. This is two coats, but I think this polish would work very well layered over a black base.

Play doh

I’m loving this crazy blue!

IKB: 2012: A bright, vibrant, electric blue with blurple (blue-purple) in a jelly finish, hence, the creation of the most densely pigmented jelly-like finish I’ve ever made.

Surprise pink

Rescue Beauty Lounge Halcyon is a gorgeous sage green with lots of shimmer. The application was smooth and easy and fully opaque in two coats. No issues to report. (And this one is still available as I type this…for NOW. But they are Limited Edition so if you want it, hurry!) It was difficult to capture the duochrome qualities of the shimmer but in person it’s not difficult to see at ALL. It shifts from pink to copper!
