Marbled magnetic manicure with Sinful Colors, L.A. Colors, Moonflower Polish, and Shleee Polish

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
Sinful Colors 2476 Shimmy Shimmy from Vanessa collection, 3 coats plus top coat. This is a bright blue polish with strong purple shimmer and cobalt blue flakes. I was disappointed in how it applied, it was super sheer and pulled away at my tips.
L.A. Colors 116 Swiss Coffee. I would call this a cafe au lait color, a lovely neutral.
Moonflower Polish Sprinkles from Summer Neons June 2018. This is an insanely bright pink neon.
Shleee Polish Ghost Bird, 2 coats plus top coat over Blackheart Beauty Black Vamp Satin Matte (1 coat, previously swatched). Before a magnet is applied, this is a concrete blue-gray with pink/red to gold/green shimmer. After magnet is applied, a bright blue stripe appears that shifts purple. Good coverage and formula.

Man, this week has just been such a gray week so far. I am not enthused to do the things I need to do, as a result of gray weather. School stuff, family stuff, house stuff. Blergh. At any rate, I’m trying to get myself together enough to write blog posts and edit photos. Even though this isn’t the oldest mani I haven’t shown you lately (slacker-itis over here), it’s one of my favorites! Continue reading

Marbled magnetic mani with OPI, Moon Shine Mani, KBShimmer

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
1 coat base
KBShimmer Insert Coin [June 2018 Polish Pickup Pack], 3 coats. I would say this is a burnished coin base and when a magnet is applied, a gold band appears and the base shifts from blue to purple.
Moon Shine Mani The One With All the Candy [February 2018 Polish Pickup Pack], 3 coats. I would say this is a multichrome red-orange-pink base with similar multichrome flakies.
OPI Check Out the Old Geysirs. A baby blue base with intense blue shimmer.

Swirled magnetic manicure with Tonic Polish Becoming + L.A. Colors Hot Blooded

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
1 coat of base
L.A. Colors 406 Hot Blooded, 2 coats plus top coat. A creamy “Hot Tamale” red that covers better than I expected and self-leveled nicely.
Tonic Polish Becoming, 2 coats plus top coat. This is a magnetic multichrome polish with a dark blue base that shifts purple to green when magnet is applied. It also has red-orange flakes that shift green. Application was a breeze and formula was wonderful.

This is my current mani and while I like it, it didn’t turn out like I expected. I think the red dried darker than I expected so it doesn’t pack the punch against Becoming like I wanted. It’s still a glorious manicure, which is why I took a lot of photos. 😛  Continue reading

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

Hey there! I meant to have this post up yesterday but I was just too exhausted to get my photos edited in time, which brings us to today!

I had seen in a polish group on Facebook that someone had picked up 3 of these Vampire Matte nail polishes and so of course I had to go try to find them myself. I ended up finding 6 and I think that’s all there is. Of course, if there is more than I shall update posthaste.
