Thermal Drag Marble manicure with KBShimmer We Make Your Dreams Come Blue and Fancy Gloss Siren’s Lure

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].

Black + White Watermarble with Pahlish Munchkinland + Fancy Gloss Pixie Rose

Hello, hello, my dear lovely readers. 🙂 I hope that your weekend was absolutely amazing. 😀 Today I have a manicure to show you with Pahlish Munchkinland and Fancy Gloss Pixie Rose and a black/white watermarble.

Pahlish Munchkinland is a pale pink base with rose gold flakes of different sizes. I layered 2 coats of this over OPI I Couldn’t Bare Less for a more pronounced white look. I dotted with Fancy Gloss Pixie Rose.

Fancy Gloss Pixie Rose is a pink holographic micro glitter with green flash/shimmer. Formula is very thick, and dries very textured. I used 3 thin coats but it took me THREE coats of top coat to get a glossy shine. I had no texture after 2 coats of top coat but no real glossy shine. :/ No bueno.

I used OPI polishes to create the black & white watermarble. Of course, my other hand came out a bit better (and of course, I didn’t take a picture of her).

I love how this turned out – it’s just kind of a funky skittlette manicure (and you know how I like those!). What are your thoughts?

Purchased by Me buttonHi everyone! I wanted to show you my current mani because I’m just so excited about how it turned out! 😀 I’m in a great group of fellow OPI nail polish lovers called OPI Mad Love (please join us!) and we’ve been doing OPI colors of the week – and this week is blue.  I decided to try my hand at doing a mani!

I started off with OPI Keeping Suzi At Bay, a dusty ocean blue. Formula was a bit jelly and a little on the runny side. This is 2 coats and no top coat.  Continue reading

Thanksgiving Skittlette Manicure with Bad Bitch Polish, Polish ‘M, and Fancy Gloss

Happy Thanksgiving Day to all my American readers and happy Thursday to everyone else! 😛 I hope that you will have an enjoyable day, and failing that, plenty of booze to help you get through any political discussions. 😉 Just a quick post to show you my manicure that I have on my nails today with Polish ‘M Instant Human (Just Add Coffee), Bad Bitch Polish Chestnut, and Fancy Gloss Mystery Box Prototype.

I used 2 coats plus top coat of Bad Bitch Polish Chestnut on my index finger. Just like all of BBP cremes, this was pretty much flawless, and didn’t need top coat for shininess.

On my pinky finger, I used 3 thin coats of Polish ‘M Instant Human (Just Add Coffee). This is a dark brown base with gold shimmer, gold, silver, orange, green, blue, and purple glitters. Good formula, a teeny bit thin for me but I like my formulas on the thicker side.

On my thumb, middle, and ring fingers, I started off with a base of white. Then on my thumb and ring fingers, I used a Fancy Gloss Mystery Box Prototype. This is an orange base with red and green-gold teeny flakes.

On my middle finger, I used the Fancy Gloss and Chestnut in a needle drag technique. It isn’t my best needle drag but I’m okay with it. I finished off with a bow charm (last used in this Barbie freehand nail art manicure).

Anyway, this was a fun little manicure to do! I hope you have an enjoyable day – I get to splurge and have a piece of pie, with the doctor’s blessing even! That reminds me, I haven’t written an update on this pregnancy lately and I really should – so much to say. But, another day!

Pick Three Polishes: Fancy Gloss Glowing Icicles, Girly Bits Cosmetics Fragments, Baroness X Topanga Teal nail art

Purchased by Me buttonYou guys, I’m sad. I’m sad because when I had this mani on, I didn’t take a glow-in-the-dark picture of it. It was amazing and during the night it kept freaking me out. 😛 But I’ll show you the awesomeness of this mani anyway! I used Fancy Gloss Glowing Icicles (Glow-In-The-Dark), Girly Bits Cosmetics Fragments, and Baroness X Topanga Teal.

I started with Topanga Teal on my pointer, middle, and pinky fingers. I believe I used 2 coats for this step. Topanga Teal wasn’t this sky blue in real life, but it wasn’t as blue-teal as I was hoping.

Then on my pointer and middle fingers, I used a criss-cross vinyl pattern and sponged/painted over it with Fragments.

Lastly, on my ring finger and thumb, I used Glowing Icicles. Formula was a bit thick on this, but that’s understandable considering the amount of glitters in this polish. I believe I used 2 coats plus top coat.

I adored this mani, I think I wore it for a whole week because it was just fun looking! 😀 What do you think?
