Morning all! I hope you are having a good week – it’s cold here and raining. I mean, I love spring rain, don’t get me wrong. But when it’s accompanied by cold temps and cold wind, then nah, I wanna pass. Good thing there’s always polish to distract me…speaking of which, I have some Formula X glitter polishes to show you today: Firecracker, Spark, Mind Blowing, Crash, and TNT. Continue reading
Happy Easter all – that is, if you celebrate it! If not, Happy Sunday! 😀 I hope you all have had a relaxing weekend – to be honest, it’s been crazy here. But I really quickly want to show you my manicure today with Parrot Polish Blue Macaw, China Glaze Bite Me, KBShimmer Salt Water Sassy, and CrowsToes Nail Color Sweet as Sugar…Cold As Ice. I’ve also used nail gems from Crystal Parade.
I started with 2 coats of Blue Macaw on my fingers. Formula is a bit thin, and it does dry a bit brush-strokey. Continue reading
Hi everyone! I’m back again with a couple more China Glaze polishes that my hubby bought me for Christmas presents: China Glaze Swing Baby and Star Hopping. (The other two being I Sea the Point and Counting Carats.)
Swing Baby is an antique gold polish with a rose-ish tinge to it. It reminds me a lot of China Glaze Strike Up a Cosmo [previously reviewed]. Formula was of good consistency; this is 3 coats and no top coat.
Star Hopping is a navy blue base with glitters of green, blue, teal, and holographic silver.
Formula is a little thick but there is good first coat coverage; it does dry textured. This is 2 coats plus matte top coat plus shiny top coat.
Star Hopping is really gorgeous and I’m glad he picked it up, even if it’s a little thick. Which of these is your favorite?
Morning all! Today I have two polishes to show you that my hubby gave me for Christmas: I Sea the Point and Counting Carats. Funny story, it wasn’t until I was editing photos that I realized I already had I Sea the Point. haha! Oh well.
I Sea the Point is a bright blue creme nail polish. This dries matte and fast; formula is thin. This is 2 coats and no top coat.
Counting Carats is a clear based gold glitter topper with small holographic glitters. This has lots of clear base but weirdly enough was thick with glitters. It does end up lumpy on the nail so when I use this again, I’ll use the sponge method to apply it.
I’m quite proud of the polishes my hubby picked out – he did pick up 2 more China Glaze polishes which I will show you at a later date. Thanks for reading!
I started off with Model City Polish Glisten. It’s a white-grey scattered holographic base with holographic micro glitters. It has a good thickness but is uneven; it does dry gritty. This is 3 coats plus top coat. Continue reading
Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! Who else is excited for 2016 to be over? I mean, it’s been a crazy year in the world, but I know that personally it was a pretty good year. But still, I’m ready for a new year and exciting things (like a baby, hopefully soon!). I decided to do some sparkly nails for NYE, based on a mani I saw by BreezytheNailPolishLover on Facebook. I’ve used ILNP I See You, ellagee My Sweet Romantic Teenage Nights, CrowsToes Nail Color Maxxed Out, and China Glaze Golden Enchantment.
ILNP I See You is a creamy champagne holographic polish.
Formula is fairly sheer, but it has a really nice holo flame without top coat. This is 2 coats and no top coat.
I then used ellagee My Sweet Romantic Teenage Nights for a half-moon manicure. This is one of my older indie polishes, and it still performs great! It is also the blackest holographic polish I own (I believe).
Over MSRTN, I first used CrowsToes Nail Color Maxxed Out in a waterfall pattern, then China Glaze Golden Enchantment (which is a clear base with holographic specks).
You can tell my half-moons changed. Well, I wasn’t happy with them so I tried to make them deeper and they ended up looking like cat heads. Sigh. I try to do one simple mani and they end up looking strange. LOL. Now that I’ve seen cat heads, I can’t stop seeing them, either!
Anyway, I hope you have a safe & fun New Year’s Eve – our crew will be at home celebrating. May 2017 hold nothing but the best for you & yours!
