Morning everyone! Today I have two Pahlish mystery polishes to show you, a bronze and a green. I hadn’t picked up mystery polishes in some time and then I let them just sit there on my untried table. For shame!
This green polish is a jelly base with teal and blue micro flakes, gold glitters and scattered holographic effect.
Application was a bit thick. It is also more green than the teal green my pictures show. This is 2 coats plus matte top coat plus shiny top coat.
This bronze polish is a jelly base with color shifting flakes, and orange and gold iridescent glitters plus scattered holographic effect.
Application was also a bit thick but otherwise good. This is 2 coats plus matte top coat plus shiny top coat.
I like the mystery polishes that Pahlish puts out, it’s a good price for something that you might love. Have you ever picked up a mystery polish from Pahlish?
Hi everyone! I bought KBShimmer None of Your Bismuth last week, received it on Saturday, and put it on my nails on Sunday – that’s how pretty this polish is. I’ve been taking a ton of pictures and I seriously have so many to share with you (multichrome polishes are so pretty!). This polish is only available until March 1 and I’ll let you know how to purchase it at the end of this post.
These inside photos were taken under my “professional” lights (har-har), near the pro lights, and by my desk LED lamp.
None of Your Bismuth is a multichrome polish that shifts from all shades of purple (royal, blurple, cool purple, red purple) to multiple shades of blue to teal green to icy teal blue to red to red gold and I swear I saw dark green as well! (Many, many, many photos to follow – I couldn’t stop taking pictures!) Continue reading
Well, how was everyone’s Valentine’s day? Do you celebrate and whoop it up or do you ignore completely? To be honest, if my husband and I didn’t have kids we would probably ignore it completely since our anniversary is at the beginning of this month. Slightly related (not really), I have Pretty & Polished Valentino and Not Enough Claritin in the World to show you today.
Pretty & Polished Valentino [gift from maker] is a clear based black and white glitter topper. I found this to be a little base heavy but application was smooth. This is 1 coat plus top coat over Morgan Taylor Beach Babe.
Pretty & Polished Not Enough Claritin in the World is a white based crelly polish with neon glitters of yellow, pink, orange, blue, green. The base is a bit watery so application was sheer. I got a good amount of glitters out on the brush but it was almost hard to get enough base out because of the glitters. It also clumped up on the nail but that is probably partially my fault for not letting each coat dry well enough. This is 3 coats plus top coat.
Even though application was tricky, I still like NECITW because of how pretty it is! What are your thoughts?
So I had a post all ready for today, typed up and everything. And then somehow, it disappeared. No trace of it except that I had uploaded the pictures. Since I was starting over anyway, I decided to replace the post with this mani that I wore a couple of weeks ago with Pahlish Just Like the Setting Sun and Pretty & Polished Smoke & Mirrors.
Hey there! Serene here from Copycat Claws. When I heard Jessica was having a baby and might need some blogging help, I jumped at the chance to help out. Jessica has always been such a wonderful member of the nail blogging community that I definitely wanted to lend a hand.
For those of you who don’t know me, my little sister named my blog for me when I first started getting into nail art. It seemed I was always finding inspiration in random places (i.e. copying) and my nail art for my guest post today is no exception. Does your town have Paint Nite’s, events where people get to hang out together, usually at a bar or restaurant, and try their hand at painting? I’ve done a couple and they’re a blast (even if I don’t have much artistic ability…hence I’m a big time stamper). Sometimes I just check out their website and look at the paintings which is what happened here. I saw an awesome neon snowflake painting that I wanted to try to get onto my nails.
To do these I started with a white base and then did a fan brush gradient with pipe dream polish Masquerade, Harlequin and Celebration. I don’t know why I don’t use the fan brush more often. It’s easy and quick and I always love the effect.
The stamping was done with Mundo de Unas White and UberChic Beauty Christmas 01. See, sometimes holiday plates can definitely be useful at times other than the actual holidays!
I’m not even sure what season this mani fits into. It’s neon like summer but covered in snowflakes. Maybe we all just need a bit of summer thrown into our winter but never the other way around. I hate snow in summer. There’s no month of the year here that is safe from snow. After all, I am Canadian…
Thank you to Jessica for letting me hang out and congrats on the newest addition to your family. I’ve always been in awe of the moms who blog. I can barely keep up without babies so kudos to those who can do it with munchkins!
And thanks to the rest of you for checking out my guest post on Jessica’s amazing blog. If you’re interested in seeing more of my nail adventures, you can follow me on Bloglovin’
‘Til next time…
Hi everyone! Kind of a late in the day post, I know. But I wanted to share with you my nails that I wore today for Henry’s baptism and my makeup. Life update at the end of this post!
I wanted something delicate since my outfit was kind of loud. LOL. I started with 3 coats of Sinful Colors Just Deserts from the Stoned Crystal Shimmer collection. It is slightly more pink in real life. (I’m really hoping to get swatches done of this collection this week, btw.) Then I added an iridescent glitter stud to the nails with Just Deserts on them.

Hello all! I hope you are having a good day. Today I have 3 Polish ‘M polishes to show you: Beach Walk, Key Lime, and Tropical Mango. These are all from last year.
Beach Walk is a light sky blue based crelly polish with glitters of dark blue, aqua, light blue, and purple. Formula was very sheer, had a good thickness, and the glitters spread well; it does dry matte. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
Key Lime is a light green based crelly polish with glitters of blue, green, lime green, and dark blue. Formula was very sheer with a good thickness; it does dry matte. The patchiness you see on the nails was not really apparent in real life. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
Tropical Mango is a pinky orange based crelly polish with glitters of red, pink, purple. Formula was sheer with a good thickness; it does dry matte. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
Surprisingly, Tropical Mango ended up being my favorite. Which one do you like best?
