Happy Monday everyone! I can’t believe August is tomorrow. Today we have an open house for the kids’ school and it’s like…holy crud, school is starting in a few weeks. Sh*t…we have how much left to do?? Ugh. So let’s distract everyone with pretty nails, mmkay? I’ve used Zoya Elphie, Olivera, and Alicia [gift] with Darling Diva Polish Fairy Pee Holo [press sample]. I’ve also used some nail studs from Crystal Parade.
Zoya Elphie is a deep forest green textured polish. This is 3 coats and no top coat. I did find that it needed that third coat to really deepen the color. Continue reading
Hi everyone! I hope you are having a good afternoon. I realized I hadn’t shown a makeup look in awhile and I had some lipsticks sent to me to try out – Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate in 40 and 41 – so let’s kill 2 birds with 1 stone here. 🙂 I’ve also used an older eyeshadow palette by Sephora tailored for green eyes.
Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate in 40 is a more yellow-leaning neutral lipstick (on me anyway). Continue reading
Morning all! Today I have a grey flakie mystery polish that I picked up from Pahlish like….I dunno, forever ago. I’m slacking at getting polishes on the blog in a timely manner lately. Oops.
This is a grey polish (derp, I said that already) with multicolored flakes. It applied like a jelly polish, and had a good consistency. This is 2 coats and no top coat.
I dunno, there’s something classy about this polish, don’t you think?
Hi everyone! I hope you’ve had a good weekend. I’ve been working out more often and trying to get more fit, so I’ve graduated from walking, then walking with running intervals, then running with walking intervals, and now full on running. Don’t get me wrong, running isn’t my favorite thing but I am trying to vary my workouts. I have discovered I enjoy lifting weights, so there’s that! Anyway….today’s mani is a thermal drag marble with KBShimmer We Make Your Dreams Come Blue [gift] with Fancy Gloss Siren’s Lure [purchased myself].
KBShimmer We Make Your Dreams Come Blue is a glowing blue nail polish with holographic micro flakes. This was an exclusive polish to one of the indie polish conventions, I think? I have a rubbish memory. >.< Anyway, Steph from Imperfectly Painted gifted it to me! Continue reading
Morning all! I just realized today is my mama’s birthday – or would have been anyway. I’ll go lay flowers at her grave later today and say hello. For today’s nail polish, I’m showing you Mint to Be Mine by Poetry Cowgirl Nail Polish.
Mint to Be Mine is a white toned crelly with glitters of white, gold, mint, coral. Though this applies sheer, it has a good consistency. This is 3 coats plus top coat.
I also just realized I’ve probably had this polish for 2 years before I tried it out. Dang. Maybe I should get better about trying out my untrieds!
Hello everyone! Today I have a simple manicure with KBShimmer Got It Sandaled [gift] and Alchemy Lacquers Sweethearts [purchased myself].
KBShimmer Got It Sandaled is a blurple polish with pink shimmer. This is 2 coats plus top coat. Unfortunately, this polish is a miss for me. The formula was difficult – it was thick but applied patchy which consequently made it hard to get even. Plus it was a bit stinky (but I chalk that up to probably a pigment in the polish – which happens with this color). I really hate to say something bad about KBShimmer – they are literally one of my favorite brands because they are so consistent! Continue reading
Hey everyone! Sorry I don’t have a spoiler picture for you today with my pedicure…yeah I’m being lazy. LOL. It’s work to take and edit a picture of polish bottles especially when I have limited free time nowadays. Don’t click through unless you wanna see my feets!
