Good morning! How was your weekend? I hope you had a great one. :) We didn’t do much, just cleaned up a bit and lazed around. My husband made my mom’s cinnamon roll recipe on Friday, so we’ve been enjoying those all weekend as well (yes, and right now as I type!).
Do you ever come across a polish that you’re like “Hot damn, yes, I love this!”? Well, today’s polish made that impression on me. I just am a sucker for a hot sexy red polish.
Sally Hansen Moto is just that….a sexy red polish. This is 2 coats – almost a One Coat Wonder – with no top coat.
Even in natural light, it really is a gorgeous polish! I did experience slight staining on my skin when taking off this polish (no staining on the nail as I had used a base coat), so just keep that in mind if you buy this polish.
I’d love to know what you think of this *raowr* polish, so drop me a line below in the comments. :) Did you do anything fun this weekend?
Good Friday morning, lacquer lovers! Are you ready for the weekend? I’m excited as this is the last weekend my husband has to work all weekend long for awhile. *phew*! Today I have a 5 piece nail polish collection from Barielle called the Gentle Breeze collection. Let’s take a look! (All swatches shown with Barielle top coat.)
Champagne Bubbles is an orange-brown crelly nail polish. To be honest, this one isn’t my favorite – I feel like I’m way too pale to pull off a color like this. This is 3 coats.
Gray Sky is a pale grey with just a hint of purple. It’s almost too frosty for my liking, but stops just short. This is 2 coats.
Pink Parasol is a really lovely bubblegum pink. I did have trouble with getting it to even out. This is 3 coats.
Heaven Sent is the star of this collection (for me). It’s a brighter blue polish, but there’s just enough drops of green in there to make it turquoise. This is 2 lovely coats.
Last is Under the Sea, a shimmery teal polish. My camera wanted to make it either too blue or too green, so this photo shows just a bit more green than it actually is.
You can pick this set up for $25 through Barielle, though for my money I would only pick up Heaven Sent and possibly Pink Parasol.
I’d love to know your thoughts on this polish collection, so holler at me in the comments!
Good morning everyone! It’s Wednesday and you know what that means…

No? It’s kind of how I’m feeling this Wednesday. LOL. Anyway, I have 5 Doctor Who themed polishes from Pahlish to show you today. Click through after the collage to see more!
Good morning all you wonderful readers! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. Today I have a couple Model City Polish polishes to show you, so let’s get to it!
Model City Polish Strawberry Jam is pretty much exactly what the name suggests: a strawberry colored jam (aka jelly) polish. It also has small iridescent hexes.
Though I like this one, it’s just a bit too sheer for me and I couldn’t get the hexes to spread evenly. Next time I use it, I’ll probably layer it over another similar color.
PB&J is also a jelly, with a grape colored (I almost said flavored, haha!) base and iridescent hexes of different sizes. My photos really show this more blue than it is but it really is the perfect grape color.
I found that the hexes in this one spread out more evenly than Strawberry Jam. And yes, this is just as sheer as SJ, but the hexes make up for it, to me. They really make this one sparkle so nicely!
I’d love to know what you think of either of these polishes, which one is your favorite? Neither of these is currently available from MCP, unfortunately, but I’m sure you could find them from re-sellers!
Coming up this week on the blog: Barielle’s spring polishes (oh so pretty), and some Pahlish swatches (Doctor Who themed!). I’ll see you later,
Good Friday morning everyone! I hope you are looking forward to a wonderful weekend. :) Today I have a limited edition beauty from Scofflaw Nail Varnish to show you! Rain Dogs is described as a “plummy shimmer polish, full of green and blue shifting sparkle.” Though the description on the website says opaque in 2 coats, I used three thin coats for opacity. The gorgeous green/blue shifting sparkle is seriously stunning, but I was surprised how holographic it is! Though the sun has been hiding for a few days and I couldn’t capture it, just trust me on this! This natural light shot shows the color a bit more true to life than my lightbox photos shows, and it also gives you an idea how it really looks on your nails in regular light. Though it’s pretty to look at lightbox photos and how nicely they show off all the facets of a polish, sometimes it’s nice to know how a polish “really” looks just normally, you know?
Just a note on the finish, I’m not sure if it was because I was rushing it or if that’s how it is, but it seemed like it dried sort of gritty, and I ended up using 2 coats of Digital Nails Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That for a nice glassy finish. Otherwise, another great polish from Scofflaw – but unfortunately, a limited edition polish that is no longer available. I hope you’re able to find this second hand if you’re really lemming after it. :)
I hope you have a great weekend, and I’ll catch you later,
Good morning beautiful readers. :) I hope you are having a great morning! Today I have Different Dimension’s Black Dahlia to show you.
Black Dahlia is a black-grey holographic base with glitters of aqua, purple, and I think a hint of purple-pink.
In natural light, you can really see those aqua green and blue glitters so nicely. This was 2 easy peasy coats with Wet n Wild’s shiny top coat.
In the sun, the holographic really comes out to play, of course, but those glitters are still prevalent!
This is my second wonderful experience with Different Dimension (see my post with Tulips Are Better Than One), and I need to get more DD! Do you have any recommendations? Black Dahlia can be purchased from Different Dimension.
On a programming note: unfortunately right now my health has really taken a dive. I’ve been to the doctor’s and am waiting on test results as we speak, but for the time being, I’m going to be cutting back my posting to probably 3 to 4 times a week. I hope you stick with me while I’m going through this health stuff!
