This is a grey polish (derp, I said that already) with multicolored flakes. It applied like a jelly polish, and had a good consistency. This is 2 coats and no top coat.

I dunno, there’s something classy about this polish, don’t you think?

Thermal Drag Marble manicure with KBShimmer We Make Your Dreams Come Blue and Fancy Gloss Siren’s Lure

Hi everyone! I hope you’ve had a good weekend. I’ve been working out more often and trying to get more fit, so I’ve graduated from walking, then walking with running intervals, then running with walking intervals, and now full on running. Don’t get me wrong, running isn’t my favorite thing but I am trying to vary my workouts. I have discovered I enjoy lifting weights, so there’s that! Anyway….today’s mani is a thermal drag marble with KBShimmer We Make Your Dreams Come Blue [gift] with Fancy Gloss Siren’s Lure [purchased myself].

Mint to Be Mine is a white toned crelly with glitters of white, gold, mint, coral. Though this applies sheer, it has a good consistency. This is 3 coats plus top coat. 

I also just realized I’ve probably had this polish for 2 years before I tried it out. Dang. Maybe I should get better about trying out my untrieds!

KBShimmer Got It Sandaled + Alchemy Lacquers Sweethearts manicure

Hello everyone! Today I have a simple manicure with KBShimmer Got It Sandaled [gift] and Alchemy Lacquers Sweethearts [purchased myself].

KBShimmer Got It Sandaled is a blurple polish with pink shimmer. This is 2 coats plus top coat. Unfortunately, this polish is a miss for me. The formula was difficult – it was thick but applied patchy which consequently made it hard to get even. Plus it was a bit stinky (but I chalk that up to probably a pigment in the polish – which happens with this color). I really hate to say something bad about KBShimmer – they are literally one of my favorite brands because they are so consistent! Continue reading

Anyone else a Whovian? What did you think of this year’s episodes?

Mixed Animal Print holographic manicure with CrowsToes Nail Color, OPI, Turtle Tootsie Polishes, Painted Polish

Morning all! I hope that if you’re having a heat wave like we are in Montana, you’re staying cool! I am sweltering and not staying cool because my 6month old is on a nursing streak and he’s sweaty – which makes me sweaty and him more sweaty. Ugh. It’s a sweaty mess. How about a mani that isn’t a mess….or maybe it is? I dunno. At first I didn’t really like it but then it grew on me. Let me know at the end what you think.

CrowsToes Damned If You Do, Turtle Tootsie Polishes Aquarius, Painted Polish Gray Goddess  | Be Happy And Buy Polish

So I started off with OPI You’re So Vain-illa on my ring and pointer fingers. On my pointer finger, I used a giraffe print (maybe it’s a cheetah print?) decal and used Painted Polish Gray Goddess, then outlining with China Glaze Liquid Leather. I added some gems from Crystal Parade in the corner – didn’t really like how it turned out though. Continue reading
