CrowsToes Dragon In Drag 3

CrowsToes Dragon in Drag is a glitter topper full of various sizes and shapes of blue, green and gold glitter. This is my favorite of the collection, it looks all under the sea over blue! The formula was a little thick but very glitter dense and easy to apply. I used 1 coat over Misa Winter Bluesy Blues for the photos below.

The KBShimmer Winter 2013 Collection includes some glitters, some multichromes and even some holographic multichromes! There’s something for everyone with this one. KBShimmer Snow Flaking Way! is an indigo jelly base with blue, purple and silver holographic glitters in various shapes and sizes, including snowflakes! We first saw snowflake glitters in Snow Much Fun from the KBShimmer Blogger Collection and although I’m usually not a fan of hearts and stars and those types of glitters, I actually really like the snowflakes. Though as I said in my review of that collection, the snowflakes do not want to lay flat on the nail. The formula was good, but I did have to fish some of the snowflakes out. My swatch shows three coats.

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may have seen the EPIC nail mail I received from Barbra at ILNP awhile back. It’s no secret that I literally squeal over her polishes. Every creation is more fabulous than the last. I’ve been soooo backed up with swatch commitments and I knew the holidays would slow me down…so Barbra knew it may be some time before they made their appearance on WPP. But it’s been KILLING me to see all of these ILNP pretties just sitting there…waiting to be tried. I was looking at all the bottles lined up in a row and loved how four shades looked together. I took a cue from the Manicurator (who has done swatch posts with one matching accent nail) and put everything together in today’s post. All of these shades are STILL available in the ILNP store.  :)

I Love Nail Polish Molly…wow. You’re probably tired of hearing me say how much I like berry shades of polish. Add some ultra-sparkly holo and I’m sold. The finish is absolutely gorgeous! This one makes my heart melt. LOL.

Today’s manicure incorporates three beautiful Darling Diva polishes from the Queen inspired collection (reviewed here). All three are duochromes with holographic particles in them so it’s given that they look stunning. I have used a striping tape to help me get straight lines and Seche Vite topcoat to seal the design. The shades used are: Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Bohemian Rhapsody and Killer Queen.

I received a lovely package from \ with some gorgeous shades…all the way from the UK! The polishes I used were so vibrant so they worked perfectly for the “psychedelic” look…kind of remind me of Pucci.

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.

I used an abundance colours here, far too many to list them all! My base colours are Barry M Greenberry and Illamasqua Jo’Mina. I layered on lots of different greens and purples using the technique, and finally I dabbed Illamasqua Caress over the top.
