Purchased by Me buttonUgh you guys. ūüė¶ 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. ūüė¶

Purchased by Me buttonMorning all! I hope you are having a good Friday. ūüôā Today I have a polish that you’ve seen on the blog before, underneath Formula X Alchemy III. Let’s take a look at Brain Power by itself!

Formula X Brain Power | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Brain Power is a camel brown creme polish. Though the formula is thin, it self-levels nicely; it does dry satin. This is 2 coats and no top coat. 

It’s nice to have such a neutral polish in my polish arsenal but I’m glad I didn’t pay full price for this!

Guest Post by The Jedi Wife: iKat nail art manicure

Greetings, everyone! It is such an honor to be a guest blogger here at Be Happy and Buy Polish while Jessica is busy taking care of her new little bundle of joy! My name is Jen, and I am the blogger behind TheJediWife.com. For my guest post, I wanted to share a cute ikat nail art look with you; let’s check it out!
Between the holidays in December and then Valentine’s Day in February, red has really caught my attention lately. I’ve been wanting to do something fun with my bottle of Ellagee Polish Bad Romance, and I’m really loving this design!
On my nails with the ikat pattern, I started off with Zoya Purity as my base. On a mat, I stamped the ikat pattern from Color Club¬†Abstract¬†stamping plate with China Glaze¬†Liquid Leather. I filled in some of the open areas of the ikat pattern with Bad Romance before transferring the design onto my white base and then sealing everything in with Glisten & Glow‘s HK Girl top coat.
I really enjoyed creating this look, and with several fun images on the Abstract stamping plate, I’m going to have to play and design more nail art looks with it for my blog! I hope this post has been inspiring for you as well, and I hope to see you over on my blog on occasion! Thank you for reading, and thank you to Jessica for allowing me to share this with you!
Thank you Jen! I love this funky look and it’s using a nail art look¬†that I so admire. Bad Romance is gorgeous! Please go check out Jen’s blog, TheJediWife.com, and give her a follow on¬†Facebook, instagram.
