Stormy

Nailtisaneserpentsfang2

Nail Tisane Serpent’s Fang is a medium grey scattered holographic.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.  I really love this one!!  It’s such a perfect stormy grey! Shown is two coats of Serpent’s Fang.

Brrr…

Pretty & Polished Hybrid is a pale blue shimmer thermal that shifts to medium blue and then to purple when cold.  The formula was smooth and very easy to apply.  I absolutely love the triple shift in this one!   Shown is two coats of Hybrid.

Clover 4

Red Carpet Lacquer Clover is a yellow, green and orange multi-shaped glitter. Seems simple enough but what these photos do not show is the glow this polish produces. It’s like foil – it’s awesome! I could have gotten complete coverage with two (ish) coats but I wore one coat over China Glaze Starboard.

This is everything. I love the soft lilac pink, the silver hex glitter floating around on the nail, and the overall whimsical feel that this polish gives me. It’s everything I tell you!

Gradient Concert

Tumblr mpt0nujekY1qiaoh3o1 500

Back in July, I went to two concerts back-to-back, a One Direction and a Jonas Brothers concert. I was a bit unsure of what mani to wear since I didn’t have time to do a 1D mani and a JB mani (since the concerts were back-to-back). So, I pulled out the customized polish that I ordered from Shimmer Polish. Cindy helped create a beautiful peach, gold, and black polish that I customized for my friend Anouk. Ironically, Anouk and I met through Jonas Brothers and she actually introduced me to One Direction .. so what better polish to use, right? :D

Serum No 5 Love Preview 1

Serum No. 5 Love, Preview is a black base with various sizes of gold glitter. This also glows bright blue in the dark! This is such a great representation of all the gorgeous polishes Victoria makes, it’s beautiful in every kind of light and I really enjoy the glow in the dark! The formula was good, it was easy to apply and opaque in 2 coats.

A dead on dupe of Deborah Lippmann’s Ruby Red Slippers (Wet n Wild Behind Closed Doors is also a dupe). I don’t normally go for such dark polishes, so I definitely wouldn’t spend $18 on it, but for $2.99 I’m in. :)

Grab a toothpick

Radiosuperstar3

This is a really nice polish with blue micro glitter and big fuchsia with sporadic holo stars.  As cute as polishes are with the big glitter like the stars are, they are also a huge pain in the butt.  I had to put the stars in place with a toothpick because it just wasn’t happening when I brushed it on.   Oh well, you gotta do what you gotta do sometimes :).

Cracked ice is a blend of shredded translucent white glitter in a clear base.

NCLA Black Market Collection Prized Possessions has an inky purple jelly base filled with teal, blue, green and silver glitters. My application technique was the same as Emerald Bay. Prized Possessions is practically opaque in two coats. This one would also be stunning as a topper over a dark base.
