Black and White with Glit...

Day07 02

I used W7 Cosmic Black – a black jelly packed with Silver glitter – as a base. Then I took a sponge and used it to apply W7 Cosmic Mauve from the tips. Then I added some Wet n Wild White to the mix but because it’s not very opaque, it gave it a milky look. Finally I used a little more Cosmic Mauve right on the tips and used about 3 coats of NYC Top Coat to smooth things over!

Essie 006

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

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

Tip fix

Definite tip wear! So typically when this happens, I take the polish off and put a new one on… but I just wasn’t ready to part with Carly!

Bar, hex and square glitters in lots of fun colors including turquoise, lavender, chartreuse and purple in a clear base.

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.

About the collection: All three colours are inspired by the gorgeous, sophisticated women entering the 2013 MISS UNIVERSE® competition, held November 9, 2013. “The colors are very glamorous – ideal for special occasions, a night on the town, or even being named the most beautiful woman in the world!”

OPI Miss You-niverse deep plum purple creme. Another gorgeous purple that I enjoyed wearing. The shade is rather blue-based and very dark, perfect for the winter season. It is well-pigmented and all I needed were two regular coats. I didn’t have any problems with application or drying and I’m wearing a topcoat as well.

Fish Egg Friday

Fish Egg Friday

Because I already did a mixed manicure I decided to go with just one color and it looks like I made an Ombre Fish Egg Mani. I actually didn’t even remove my last Leopard mani, so I just applied a fresh coat of matching base color and sprinkle the beads on. I didn’t add any top coat because I remove it right after I took pictures. You can see a list of polish I used under the pictures… I know it’s not perfect, because it was made in just couple of minutes but you get the idea.

Intensity

Runway pearl 024

Dancing in the Sheets is a really dark purple with bright blue shimmer. The color is interesting, but the formula is what really wow-ed me. I barely needed any clean up, it flowed onto my nails perfectly in two coats.

Mutagen – green multi chrome metallic. The base colour is rich green that changes into dark green, gold, brown-green, blue and purple. When I put my nail into a bowl of water, the colours were changing into blue, orange and pink. I’ve applied one coat of Mutagen over black but two coats by themselves are opaque. The colour is slightly streaky an dries fast.

Colour Base + black

For the base layer I used a beautiful blue from Boots 17 called Catwalk Couture, it has a very slight shimmer to it, followed by a layer of Orly Galaxy Girl a stunning purply red with lots of blue shimmer that tied in nicely with the Catwalk Couture, followed by the last layer of a-england Lancelot a blackened red to tie in with the Galaxy Girl.
