Ls3

Chanel Lilac Sky is a cool-toned pinkish lilac with tons of silver shimmer. Pastels are so often warm-toned that they really don’t work on me at all, but this one, with the cool blue undertones actually makes it quite wearable for me. Application was actually better and less sheer than I expected. Two coats for opacity and no formula issues to mention. Even though it’s a bit frosty, it doesn’t really show brush strokes, but if you’ll be taking close-up photos, just make sure to do straight and even strokes. I noticed nothing until I saw my photos and there are a few very faint brush stroke marks that you couldn’t really see at arms length.

 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.

Drip ice cream sugar spun nails 1b

I wanted something cute today because it’s sort of grey here in Miami. And it’s also a little chilly – so what’s more fun than some cute ice cream nails?! I really like this melted ice cream tutorial because it’s super adorbs and because it taught me an interesting way to do drips – drawing them with a dotting tool from a different direction than I typically do it!

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.

Hey guys! Today I have a some polishes to show you from Wing Dust Collections, a Canadian indie brand with beautiful unique polishes that will make your jaw drop! They are packed with glitter and amazing color combinations, and I love them. These polishes are from the Fall 2013 collection, which will be available on November 18th.

Did I not warn you about how beautiful these polishes are?! Muskoka Sunset is a bright purple crelly filled with bright pink, orange, periwinkle and lavender glitters that suspend perfectly in their base. This polish truly looks like a beautiful sunset, and it is so unique. Shown above is three coats, no fishing or dabbing required.

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.
