Cameo Colours Lacquers Shuttity Up Up Up! [November 2017 Polish Pickup Pack], 3 coats plus top coat. I was worried with how packed this is that I would need a lot of top coat, but I didn’t! Everything laid down flat and formula was really nice.
L.A. Colors Energy, 2 coats as base
L.A. Colors Luminous (coral), Electric (purple), Nuclear (blue)
This is my current mani, although I think I’m taking it off later today. The blacklight/neon nails are wearing at the tips really fast, which is annoying. For whatever reason, whenever I have nail art like that, it wears off too fast. But I keep doing it because it’s pretty. haha! Continue reading
P.O.P Polish SurfSlick, 3 coats
L.A. Colors Flannel Grey, 2 coats
1 coat of glossy top coat
Oh man, I remember this mani! Not just because it was so striking but also because I’ve been growing my nails out since this mani – I had three really bad (down to the quick!) breaks on my swatching hand and my fingers just hurt.
Last of lip swatches and makeup looks for awhile – at least until I get up the energy to do more. I picked these up a good three months ago (procrastinators unite – tomorrow) but I’ve been using one of the lippies on repeat since I picked it up. Click through for product photos and swatches of Icing on the Wall and Queen’s Blood! Continue reading
Bee’s Knees Lacquer SS Georgie, 3 coats
Tonic Polish Indiglo, 3 coats
L.A. Colors Glows Energy (white), Radiation (yellow), Ultra Violet (purple)
1 coat of glossy top coat
Sometimes when I type on my computer, I remember typing up papers on my mom’s old typewriter. There’s just something about the clickety-clack of typewriter keys that just is so satisfying. Of course, it’s utterly frustrating to mess up and not have a backspace key. 😀
L.A. Colors Sheer Perfection, 1 coat as base
P.O.P Polish BootylishSlick [bottle shot post]
L.A. Colors Metal Marvelous
1 coat matte top coat
This mani is one of those that I curse my apparent inability to take a good picture of a multichrome polish, in this case BootylishSlick. In real life, this mani was so damn gorgeous, but I could only capture a fraction of that beauty on camera. Continue reading
JReine Cosmetics Hiya Georgie [September 2018 Polish Pickup Pack], 3 coats
Bee’s Knees Lacquer It, 1 coat over Hiya Georgie
P.O.P Polish Radioactive Glass [press sample]
This is like a “kitchen sink” mani – keep throwing stuff at it and see what works. 😛 I’m not sure that the thermal really works under this but I did really love it!
Pure Ice Limited Edition Bubbling Brew, 1 coat as a base
Quixotic Polish Bug Day [September 2018 Polish Pickup Pack]
L.A. Colors Glows Wave Length
Hey everyone, I hope you’re having a good week so far! This past weekend felt incredibly long to me and I needed a few days to recuperate. Last night I got to pamper myself with a hair trim, eyebrow wax & dye, and then an actual sit-down dinner by myself. It felt wondrous.
