Mai Tai is GORGEOUS! Super sexy red jelly with red hex, holo and silver shimmer. 3 coats here, though a careful 2 coat would suffice.

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.

Nanacoco City of Emeralds is a cool toned lime green foil. I absolutely love this color! Shown above is two easy coats. I think this was my favorite of the bunch, but it was the hardest to photograph.

Roasted

If you’ve been on the Bootie Babe storefront lately, you might have noticed some familiar looking nails! I spent several weeks swatching their entire polish line, which is around fifty shades. Fifty shades of Bootie Babe … now there’s your book title! Badum tss.

Anyway, I thought I’d show you my absolute favorite polishes!!

Bootie Babe Rump Roast is a deep brown with a vibrant purple shimmer.  The formula was rich and easy to apply.  I really love this one!  The purple shimmer really makes this shade stand out! Shown is two coats of Rump Roast.

Liquid Crystal Tips

I want to declare my love to Crushed Velvet from Diamond Cosmetics. It’s my fav dark purple creme, so smooth and dreamy… I love it to pieces! And with China Glaze – Liquid Crystal sponged on the tips I love it even more.

Glittery Gradient Nails

Apply a second coat of the glitter nail polish, this time starting halfway down the nail (roughly somewhere in between where the glitter color and the opaque color started) and going all the way to the tip. This will blend the glitter and the silver tips and help create a gradient effect.

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.

If you love grey and glitter, this is THE polish for you! This is two coats of Elemental Styles E=mc^2 with one coat of top coat! Whitney’s creations are inspired by her love for Chemistry and polish! Application was spot on and NO digging for glitter, which I love! It reminds me of cookies n cream–if only polish was edible!!

Under the sea

Sea Creature is a mix of dark emerald micro glitter and medium blue holo hex glitters with a sprinkling of small violet glitter. I’ve seen a few random pieces of medium silver holo hexes as well in there, but they’re kinda rare. This is all in a clear base, but it covers almost completely in two coats on its own, or in one coat over a base color (shown here over Rescue Beauty Lounge Teal).

Pink Gumballs

I used three coats of Candy Shop for the picture above, and seriously HOW FUN IS THIS?! I love the variety of glitter in the bubblegum pink jelly base, it’s just too cute. The formula was a bit thick, but not too problematic. Best part you ask? It’s super affordable!

Royal blue

Blue nail polish

a-england, per usual, knocks it out of the park with Order Of The Garter.  It took 3 coats for a solid finish, but I don’t mind being that extra-layer-patient with something so beautiful — just look at that sparkle!
