Spark-tacular is a clear based glitter topper with glitters of silver, orange, green, pink, and blue. This is base heavy but has a good spread of glitters. This is 1 coat and no top coat over OPI Stay Off My Lawn!!

Daisy nail polishes swatch + review

Gift buttonHoly buckets, can you believe we are halfway through June already? Dayum! Some days I’m kind of in a fog, walking around like a zombie. I’ll blame the children – they wake me up so dang early! Anyway…how about some Daisy nail polish to show you: Purple Pride, Gulf Stream, and Forgotten Pink. These were sent to me years ago by the wonderful Michelle over at ManicTalons!

Daisy Purple Pride | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Purple Pride (and I’d like to apologize in advance for the color of my fingers!) is a bright punk (purple-pink?) creme polish. Formula is thin and sheer but it was fairly well at self-leveling. This is 2 coats and no top coat.

Daisy Gulf Stream | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Gulf Stream is a bright turquoise creme polish. It is brighter in real life. Formula was so floody but it was okay at self-leveling. This is 2 coats and no top coat.

Daisy Forgotten Pink over Purple Pride | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Forgotten Pink is a slightly pink-tinted base glitter with pink, blue, and iridescent glitters. Formula was thick; it dries gritty. This is 1 coat over Purple Pride plus top coat.

Forgotten Pink is my favorite here, it was rather eye-catching in person!
