Good morning all! It must be the week for clearing out my drafts folder, because I found another old post that I’m sharing with you today. :) This was a gift from a Hobby Polish Bloggers gift exchange awhile back and shame on me for not sharing it sooner!
LAC – My Mani? is an off-white creme polish. This is 2 thick coats, and I still had trouble with it leveling out.
Rouge 66 is a bright, cherry red polish. This is 2 coats, and it has a thin formula. Note: it did not stain my nails, but I didn’t have it on for long.
So Berry On Trend is a purple-ish red polish. Really lovely color! This is 2 coats.
Careful, It’s Vine-tage is a gorgeous polish that I could NOT get a good picture of. This is the best of the worst, basically. LOL. It is more red-toned than my pictures could pick up. This is 2 coats.
Last is Echo Dark, a navy blue polish. This is 2 coats.
As you can see, all the polishes have a waxy finish, but the colors themselves aren’t particularly unique. Still, though, my favorite is Rouge 66 – I just love that bright red!
Did you ever pick up any of these polishes? Let me know if you did, or which is your favorite!
Hey and good morning all! Continuing my series of “What’s In My Travel Bag”, I thought you might be interested in what I carry with me for my nails during a trip. I’m assuming you (like me) are starting your trip already having done your manicure.
For short trips I have just a few requirements: 1) whatever I bring has to fit in a small makeup bag 2) whatever I bring has to truly be a need. So let’s get started, shall we?
Hey everyone! I have an oldie post for you today. I was looking through my drafts folder and spotted this duo that I had never shown you! So let’s get to it. :)
Sephora Formula X Dynamic is a grey-beige nail polish. Formula on this was pretty flawless, this is 2 easy coats – and no top coat!
I decided to pair Dynamic with Out of Sight, a glittery gold topper. This has small gold flakes paired with pretty big gold pieces. I’m still not sure I like this polish and I’ve had it for a few months!
You will need a glitter smoother top coat followed by a shiny top coat to get the results you see here.
I wish this was just a bit more sparkly, but I guess sometimes you *can’t* have it all. :P What do you think of this duo?
I hope you have a great day and I’ll see you back here tomorrow,
Good morning! This week, I’m talking about “What’s In My Travel Bag” since I’ll be traveling soon. Today I’m sharing with you what I consider to be my makeup essentials for traveling.
My requirements for what goes in my makeup bag: 1) it has to be something I will actually use, 2) no repeats (double blush, double bronzer, etc), 3) it has to be a necessity, and 4) I can’t go buy something new just for the trip.
Good afternoon everyone! This month, Challenge Your Nail Art group is hosting the “All Things Blue” Nail Art challenge. It’s a short challenge: April 28-30. Check out the details below:
Good Monday morning all! I hope you had a fine weekend. :) I cleaned up my whole house and man, do I feel better walking through it today. The sun is shining, birds are chirping, and I don’t have to be grumpy because the house is messy. *happy sigh* Today I have a fun skittlette for you that I’m calling “beachy” only because it kind of seems that way to me.
I started off with 2 coats of Finger Lickin’ Lacquer Quite Contrary (press sample) on my pointer finger, then used Wet N Wild Listening to Blue Reed and a Blank Canvas for the flower, sticking some nail art beads in it while it was still wet.
On my middle and pinky fingers, I started off with 3 coats of Carpe Noctem Cosmetics Kintsukuroi, adding an additional 2 coats of KBShimmer Dressed to Gild on my middle finger, and creating dots with Wet n Wild Teal Slowly and See on my pinky finger.
On my ring finger, I started off with Wet N Wild Listening to Blue Reed and creating a gradient with Teal Slowly and See and A Blank Canvas.
This wasn’t my favorite nail art I’ve ever done, but it was sparkly enough to keep me happy for a few days! :) I hope you enjoyed it too.
I’d love to hear about your weekend, so drop a line in the comments below.
Hello and welcome to your Friday!! Woohoo, right? Well, that’s a definite WOOHOO for me! ;) Let’s start the weekend off with some holographic goodness with butter LONDON Dodgy Barnett.
I picked up Dodgy Barnett awhile back at TJMaxx and while it didn’t look like much in the store, I did catch a flash of holo that made me say “Wait just a minute!”
This is 3 thin coats with top coat. It isn’t the most holographic nail polish ever, but for $3.99, I was quite pleased with my purchase!
Well, do you have any fun plans for this weekend? Not much going on here, I’m just hoping for some actual spring weather. ;)
