Anne is a polish that was simply MADE to be on my nails. As soon as I saw this dark olive green beauty I knew it had to be mine. This polish is rather awesome. Not only is it a gorgeous murky olive tone, but it’s filled with antique gold and bright fuchsia pink shimmer! I have a few greens like this in my collection but none of them hold a candle to Anne!

At the plate this evening, Layla Hologram Effect 08 Flash Black. I almost always layer my holos over a base color to save on polish, well to save on the holo polish that is. I layered this one over a plain creme black and WOW does it ever POP!

Bubble Yummy is a strikingly beautiful semi-sheer purple base with a mixture of glitter… silver and purple fine glitter and bright blue hologram medium hex glitter. This polish combination is absolutely stunning on. It’s bright and very fun…it definitely attracts attention! It looks great over other colors (see the swatches up above) or alone with 2 to 3 coats of polish. This polish has a smooth finish after applying a top coat. Please apply a thick top coat to seal in the glitter and allow for a smooth finish! Happy Polishing!!! :0)

Hi guys!  Today’s post is going to be another full of swatches like I did the other day with the Revlon Colorstay polishes.  This time around I will feature some lovely Bettina polishes! Bettina 28 is AMAZING.  I am not sure there are even any more words needed to go along with these pictures. This is just 2 coats of polish.  I am in love.

Glitter Sponging

I used A-England Bridal Veil – a black scattered holographic – as a base and sponged Girly Bits Into The Night – holographic glitter in a black jelly base – on to the tips!

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

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.

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

It doesn’t have the most imaginative name but it pretty much sums up the polish, a gorgeous black with fine holographic glitter. In the photos I applied two coats but because the formula is pretty thick and opaque you could get way with one coat.

Color Club Wild At heart Fashion Addict  3

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