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 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!

CrowsToes Nail Color Bitch on Wheels swatch + review [September Polish Pickup Pack]

Press Sample button

Polishes used:

CrowsToes Nail Color Bitch on Wheels for September Polish Pickup Pack, 3 coats plus top coat. I would say this is a scattered holographic red nail polish with gold glow and purple sparks (shut it, I’m having trouble thinking!).

This applied evenly, with a jelly-like formula. No trouble with staining my nails or my cuticles. I thought this might dry with a bit of texture even with top coat, but it did not.

This polish is based on the book/movie Christine by Stephen King, specifically the actual paint color of Christine! First, I gotta say I’m a huge SK fan so I was stoked to see this polish in the September “horror movie” themed Polish Pickup Pack. I’m a huge proponent of reading the books before watching the movies, and I probably read this book first in high school. Shortly after, I watched the movie. Now it isn’t my favorite Stephen King based movie but the book definitely is. Stephen King has a way of writing that you can just feel the dread creeping up on you. To this day, I still see faces in the grill of cars (older cars especially) and it freaks me out!

September Polish Pickup Pack is open this coming weekend, September 7 through 10. There are many beautiful polishes going to be available and I hope you put this one on your wish list! This will be $12 and will have no cap.

Update, per Madame Crow:
My Sincere Apologies to any that were offended by her given name…I totally spaced on this one… Fear Not! Your bottle of B.O.W. will ship with BOTH labels (just like we did with the power stone & the manslut)
The “G” Rated Version will read: “B!#ch On Wheels”
The “R” Rated version shown above will be enclosed with each polish. 🙂

Side note: I was hoping to do nail art with this polish but as of yet that hasn’t happened. I’ll have more in a post tomorrow but I’ve been really struggling lately and so haven’t put together nail art.

You remember the scene that the CrowsToes Nail Color is based on, right? The scene were Sandy shows off her new look to Danny?
