Hi 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
Hi everyone! Ready for a wintery manicure? I have one just for you featuring Model City Polish Glisten, Fancy Gloss Ocean Pixie, and China Glaze Strawberry Fields.
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 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!
You 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?
Hi everyone! I recently pulled out about 50 untried mainstream brand polishes, and combining that with my current stack of untried indie polishes, I have about 110 untried polishes. I decided to start a new series – Pick Three Polishes – in which I’d randomly pick three polishes, swatch each one, and then create nail art with the three. For the inaugural post I have Fancy Gloss Dark Chocolate (holo), Emily de Molly Cracks in the Walls, and Wet N Wild Ferguson Crest Syrah.
Fancy Gloss Dark Chocolate (holo) is pretty much exactly what the name says: a dark chocolate holo nail polish. LOL 😀 Formula was smooth and great. Almost a OCW *one coat wonder*, but I used 2 coats plus top coat.
It’s Sunday, SUNDAY! Woohoo! I dunno why I’m so excited, it’s going to be a long day because my husband has to work all day (Sundays are usually his day off). But, I’ll try to be cheerful anyway. But today I want to show you a Fancy Gloss polish I picked up awhile back: Prototype 12.
Prototype 12 has a reddish brown base with orange red flakes and green shimmer. It also has a scattered holographic effect.
This is 2 coats and no top coat. This is fairly unique to my collection, I don’t think I have another like it. This is no longer available on Fancy Gloss’ website, though. Sorry!
Now for the weekly Beauty Blog coalition links:
Hi everyone! I have a huge post today so let’s jump right in. I had such a hard time narrowing down my favorite indie polishes that I showed on the blog in 2015 but I finally got it down to 20…p.s. *phew!
