I must confess, I was sent these polishes a few months ago but I haven’t been able to sit down and swatch in quite some time. I finally rectified that this past weekend so let’s check these polishes out.
L.A. Colors Energy, Ultra Violet, Nuclear, Gleaming, Fluorescent, Radiation
China Glaze Night and Slay, 3 coats. This dries fairly gritty, hence I needed two coats of top coat on these nails.
P.O.P Polish Scared Slick, 3 coats [press sample, previously swatched]
2 coats of top coat
My brain is fried, I’m currently trying not to cry on my computer because I’ve got cramps up the wazoo. So enjoy this manicure back from October!

Oh gosh, I’ve been meaning to post this all weekend, and it was just a tough weekend over all (more on that later). I hope you remember the fluid nail art I created with this polish from CrowsToes? (Go ahead, I’ll wait while you look.) It has been really popular on Pinterest and now you get to see this polish in its full glory, all by itself!

I couldn’t wait to show you my current manicure, so here we are. I picked up a few new polishes from Hot Topic and I received a new polish to swatch; while they were sitting together two of them looked incredible together so I decided to combine them together. Buckle up, buttercup, I’ve got quite a few photos to show you! Continue reading

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!

Oh my gosh you all, it’s Doctor Who Day! The new Doctor premieres today and I’m so excited and jumping up and down. I’m unsure about a female Doctor but I’m more than willing to see where this newest season takes us.
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.
Yesterday I shared with you swatches of the Halloween polishes from P.O.P Polish (launching today!) and right now I’m back with two manicures I created with those polishes.
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.
