Hi everyone! I’m back again with a couple more China Glaze polishes that my hubby bought me for Christmas presents: China Glaze Swing Baby and Star Hopping.
Swing Baby is an antique gold polish with a rose-ish tinge to it. It reminds me a lot of China Glaze Strike Up a Cosmo [previously reviewed]. Formula was of good consistency; this is 3 coats and no top coat.
Star Hopping is a navy blue base with glitters of green, blue, teal, and holographic silver.
Formula is a little thick but there is good first coat coverage; it does dry textured. This is 2 coats plus matte top coat plus shiny top coat.
Star Hopping is really gorgeous and I’m glad he picked it up, even if it’s a little thick. Which of these is your favorite?
Morning everyone! I’m so happy to finally be showing you this collection from Sinful Colors called the Desert Divas with the Stoned Crystal Shimmer finish. I have the whole collection, save for Super Cooper which is on its way to me (courtesy of a lovely lady in the Sinfully Polished Nails group on fb). When I receive that polish, I’ll be sure to update this post! All of these have the same silvery flakie in them, as well as a slight teeny pink sparkle.
Hello, hello, my dear lovely readers. 🙂 I hope that your weekend was absolutely amazing. 😀 Today I have a manicure to show you with Pahlish Munchkinland and Fancy Gloss Pixie Rose and a black/white watermarble.
Pahlish Munchkinland is a pale pink base with rose gold flakes of different sizes. I layered 2 coats of this over OPI I Couldn’t Bare Less for a more pronounced white look. I dotted with Fancy Gloss Pixie Rose.
Fancy Gloss Pixie Rose is a pink holographic micro glitter with green flash/shimmer. Formula is very thick, and dries very textured. I used 3 thin coats but it took me THREE coats of top coat to get a glossy shine. I had no texture after 2 coats of top coat but no real glossy shine. No bueno.
I used OPI polishes to create the black & white watermarble. Of course, my other hand came out a bit better (and of course, I didn’t take a picture of her).
I love how this turned out – it’s just kind of a funky skittlette manicure (and you know how I like those!). What are your thoughts?
Morning everyone! Lately I’ve noticed that reviewing makeup notwithstanding, I’ve fallen into a rut with my makeup looks – I tend to play it safe with neutrals & browns or neutrals & purples. I mean, yeah, play to your strengths but I need to stretch myself a bit.
That’s how this makeup look with Glamour Doll Eyes Dreamboat and Cozy Sweater with Jesse’s Girl Sounds of the City eyeshadow palette came about. I’ve also used an untried lippie from Jordana, Cinnamon Toast from the Sweet Cream Matte line. Continue reading
Morning everyone! I worked on comparison posts this week with unicorn pee polishes – so called because the pigment used to make them is so rare. Today I have one of the newest on the market: ILNP The Magician to go up against a similar polish, Baroness X Sir Cockicorn [previously swatched].
Ugh you guys. 😦 Do you ever have a polish that you just want to love because it’s so darn pretty but in reality is the worst, most awful applying polish ever?? Yes, that’s today’s experience with Morgan Taylor Sapphires, Rubies, and Emeralds Oh My.
Sapphires, Rubies, and Emeralds Oh My is a dark purple based polish with glitters of purple, blue, lilac (somehow no red though? lol). Formula was so gloopy and clumpy. It does dry textured because of the glitters. This is 2 coats plus matte top coat plus shiny top coat.
Even looking at my pictures, I really love it! It just goes to show you that you can’t always judge a polish by its pictures. 😦
Hi everyone! I have two more Kandee Johnson polishes to show you today – these are both “sugar” finishes aka textured polishes. Here are Mint Sugar and Pink Sugar.
Mint Sugar is a minty-green textured polish with gold shimmer. Formula is of good consistency. This is 2 coats.
Pink Sugar is a bright pink textured polish (no shimmer). Formula is of good consistency but uneven application. This is 2 coats.
These are nice additions to my collection but I wish Pink Sugar would have had some sort of shimmer in it. Your thoughts?
