Blackheart Beauty Pale Pink Shimmer, 3 coats plus matte top coat. This is super sheer but dang is it pretty! Formula is on the thin side.
Fancy Gloss Mystery Box Prototype 2016, 2 coats and no top coat. This is a light blue with gold shimmer and blue holographic specks. It does dry textured.
Sally Hansen White on Time, 2 coats underneath KBShimmer flower water slide decal [press sample, previously swatched]
Crystal Parade Romance Mix
This is my current mani – man I need spring so bad. I also need my bed really badly but I’m waiting for the toddler to go to sleep before I get into pajamas and pass out for 2 hours until the baby wakes up. Not that I’m bitter about lack of sleep or anything. 😛 But I did wake up at 5:30 this morning (thanks baby) and got 2 glorious, amazing, beautiful hours by myself with coffee; 2 fantastic hours where no one touched me, yelled at me, asked me for anything, hurt me (toddlers are rough, yo), or whined at me. 😀 That was awesome, in the truest sense of the word.
CND Creative Play Pinkidescent, 2 coats and no top coat
Horrid formula – super thin and floods the nails, plus it’s sheer. Just…no. I had such high hopes because it is so pretty in the bottle!
Don Deeva Stripper Glitter
Don Deeva Box Office Bitch [previously swatched]
This is 1 coat of Stripper Glitter over Box Office Bitch with 1 coat of top coat. This is top coat hungry but applies even and has good consistency.
Cameo Colours Lacquers Rainbow Moonstone Magic for Polish Pickup January 2018, 2 coats plus top coat. Beautiful polish, great formula. No complaints!
Zoya Pixie Dust Waverly
Have you ever just been so bone-deep tired that you feel like you could sleep for years? Yeah, that’s how I feel right now – for literal years. Like, a hungover kind of tired, except without the fun of drinking the night before. And I feel that way every day. Enough about my problems, this is my current mani and I guess I’m just feeling blue. I riffed off of this manicure guzelia_gold posted on instagram. I quite like that the Revlon is barely there! I will have swatches of the Revlon holographic polishes soon. I hope!
CrowsToes Nail Color Headless Bride [gift from maker], 3 thin coats plus top coat. This was a little uneven but 3 coats evened it out. It had good glitter coverage.
Fancy Gloss Denim Daze, 2 coats plus top coat. This was almost a One-Coat Wonder, I didn’t need to top coat for it to shine.
Crystal Parade Pearl/Crystal Snowfall Mix
L.A. Colors Color Craze
3 Plum Smoke
789 Deja Blue
Plum Smoke is so fantastic and you should go buy it right now.
Celestial Cosmetics Are You Mooning Me? 2 coats plus top coat. Formula was a bit thin but covered beautifully.
Polish ‘M Shamrock, 2 coats (umm, how could I not use this for a St. Patrick’s Day mani?). Formula was a bit thick but again, it covered beautifully and leveled nicely.
Baroness X Oz
Okay, I just couldn’t wait to show this off because I really love how it turned out! I used this tutorial from kombucha_witch_. I’m going to have to practice with this technique because it’s really nifty! I bought Are You Mooning Me? all because of Tanya’s swatches. It looked so amazing on her, I just had to buy it. And I’m so glad I did! I literally cannot stop staring at my nails. 😛
