Marbled magnetic manicure with Sinful Colors, L.A. Colors, Moonflower Polish, and Shleee Polish

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
Sinful Colors 2476 Shimmy Shimmy from Vanessa collection, 3 coats plus top coat. This is a bright blue polish with strong purple shimmer and cobalt blue flakes. I was disappointed in how it applied, it was super sheer and pulled away at my tips.
L.A. Colors 116 Swiss Coffee. I would call this a cafe au lait color, a lovely neutral.
Moonflower Polish Sprinkles from Summer Neons June 2018. This is an insanely bright pink neon.
Shleee Polish Ghost Bird, 2 coats plus top coat over Blackheart Beauty Black Vamp Satin Matte (1 coat, previously swatched). Before a magnet is applied, this is a concrete blue-gray with pink/red to gold/green shimmer. After magnet is applied, a bright blue stripe appears that shifts purple. Good coverage and formula.

Man, this week has just been such a gray week so far. I am not enthused to do the things I need to do, as a result of gray weather. School stuff, family stuff, house stuff. Blergh. At any rate, I’m trying to get myself together enough to write blog posts and edit photos. Even though this isn’t the oldest mani I haven’t shown you lately (slacker-itis over here), it’s one of my favorites! Continue reading

Hey everyone! Long time no see. I’ve really been incredibly busy, exhausted, and struggling this week, hence why you haven’t heard from me. School is starting soon and along with that craziness is just general life craziness plus anxiety. Yay! <_< All that adds up to me not wanting to do my nails or edit photos or write up blog posts. But I will strive to do better this week! Continue reading

Veil nail art with Polish ‘M and Tonic Polish

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
1 coat of base
Polish ‘M Cold Hands, Warm Heart, 3 thin coats. This applied really nicely and evenly. I would describe this as a pale sky blue base with glitters of white, pink, blue.
Tonic Polish Hush
Dreamland Lacquer Ooh Shiny QDTC, 1 coat

Polish 'M Cold Hands, Warm Heart | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I can’t believe I waited this long to wear this Polish ‘M. It is so interesting! I think it would be too blue with the added blue shimmer and glitters, but it just brightens it up. Also it did not dry too gritty either.

Afternoon everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. It has been over 100 for the last few days so I’ve been staying at home, doing nothing and trying to remain cool. Well, as long as you don’t count housework, I’ve been doing nothing. 😛

Marbled magnetic mani with OPI, Moon Shine Mani, KBShimmer

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
1 coat base
KBShimmer Insert Coin [June 2018 Polish Pickup Pack], 3 coats. I would say this is a burnished coin base and when a magnet is applied, a gold band appears and the base shifts from blue to purple.
Moon Shine Mani The One With All the Candy [February 2018 Polish Pickup Pack], 3 coats. I would say this is a multichrome red-orange-pink base with similar multichrome flakies.
OPI Check Out the Old Geysirs. A baby blue base with intense blue shimmer.

Dreamland Lacquer Ooh Shiny QDTC, 1 coat
