Anyway…I’ve shown you swatches of the newest P.O.P Polishes and yesterday you saw two nail art manicures with a few of those new polishes. I really wanted to do something interesting with the blacklight reactive top coat from P.O.P Polish besides using it for its intended purpose. I decided to created swirled decals. I looked around and found some polishes that looked nice together, which included a magnetic and a mainstream blacklight reactive polish.

First up is this dry brush/gradient with FrankenSlick and Jack O Lantern. Doesn’t this look like copper that has a patina?

For this mani, I started with a base of Scared Slick and created a sponged gradient with it and Eye of Newt. It turned out incredible!

I have one more mani to show you but you will have to wait until tomorrow! 😀 It will be worth it, I promise. 😛 Hint: it has to do with the Radioactive Glass that is blacklight reactive.

Hey everyone! I hope you know at this point how much I love the Pastel Oil Slicks from P.O.P Polish. Well, the maker was looking for swatchers for upcoming Halloween nail polishes and I jumped at the chance. I was sent 5 nail polishes and 3 top coats (a glossy, a matte, and blacklight reactive). These are launching tomorrow at the P.O.P Polish shop, so let’s get to it! 😀 Continue reading

CrowsToes Nail Color Between Rage and Serenity swatch + review [October Polish Pickup Pack]

Polishes used:
CrowsToes Nail Color Between Rage and Serenity for October Polish Pickup Pack

Happy Thursday everyone! What’s so funny is that yesterday I thought it was Thursday all day long and now that it’s Thursday, it feels a bit repetitive. Like…I’ve already done this once this week, and now I gotta do it again? 😛 But it is one day closer to the opening of the October Polish Pickup Pack, and the theme for this month is Villians! Madame Crow at CrowsToes Nail Color picked Magneto for her inspiration and with a name like that, you’ve got to have a magnetic polish of course!

Hot Topic Beetlejuice Handbook for the Recently Deceased eyeshadow palette swatches + makeup looks

Purchased by Me buttonHey everyone! I have several makeup/swatch posts that I’ll be sharing with you over the next week (two weeks?), starting with an eyeshadow palette from Hot Topic I picked up about a month ago, the Handbook for the Recently Deceased, which is a reference from the movie Beetlejuice. If you’ve never watched Beetlejuice, you should do yourself a favor and watch it before Halloween (or really, anytime of the year!). I need to rewatch it soon, I haven’t seen it in much too long.

First I’ll show you a look at the packaging, then the shadows and swatches, and finally the three different eye looks I created with this palette. Let’s get started!

The packaging seems sturdy and well-made. Some of the palettes at Hot Topic have very narrow openings and it’s hard to get product out, but this one bucks that trend.

L.A. Colors Glows Color Craze nail polish collection (bottle photos)

Purchased by Me buttonI must admit that I went a little crazy at Walmart the other day, because I found basically untouched displays of these L.A. Colors Glows Color Craze polishes, the Pure Ice Limited Edition Halloween polishes, and of Wet N Wild Limited Edition Halloween products. More on the Wet N Wild & Pure Ice in a few days but how about some bottle photos of the Glows polishes?

Anyone else stand in the bathroom looking at yourself in the mirror and have imaginary conversations? Either replaying a conversation you’ve had and making it different or just totally making up a scenario and playing it out? Or am I the only one? 😀 For whatever reason (maybe it’s because I hate conflict), I’ll play out made-up scenarios where I actually tell people what I think of them instead of being polite and swallowing my feelings.
