Morning all! This week must be the week to show off some unicorn pee polishes considering I’ve already shown you Baroness X Fire Opal. How about some shimmery goodness with Illyrian Polish Space Oddity [gift] and ILNP The Magician [purchased myself] (which you’ve seen in Unicorn Pee comparison posts here and here).
Space Oddity is a blue polish with green teal shimmer and purple shift. It applied sheer and patchy – my mistake was that you need to let each coat dry thoroughly to avoid dragging and I didn’t do that. It does dry satin. This is 3 coats plus top coat.
Hi everyone! As you may have figured out from the title of today’s post, I have a pedicure to show you! I’ve used Daisy Sweet Romance [gift] with ILNP Juliette, along with nail gems from Crystal Parade’s nail art gold mix.
If you’re not a fan of pedicures, then don’t look beyond this point! Continue reading
Hey everyone! So last weekend, I did a comparison of ILNP The Magician to Baroness X Sir Cockicorn. While I had all my unicorn pee polishes out, I decided to do two massive comparison posts. Today’s post is going to compare Darling Diva Polish Ringer Goes Blonde, Baroness X Sir Cockicorn, ILNP The Magician, and Baroness X Fire Opal. Just to warn you, I have a lot of photos in today’s post!

Morning everyone! I worked on comparison posts this week with unicorn pee polishes – so called because the pigment used to make them is so rare. Today I have one of the newest on the market: ILNP The Magician to go up against a similar polish, Baroness X Sir Cockicorn [previously swatched].
Happy day to you all! I hope you had a great weekend. Today I have some nail polish swatches and layering to show you with SuperMoon Lacquer Mystic Mountain, ILNP Phoenix, and Bad Bitch Polish Dripping Icicles [press sample, previously swatched].
(Hey all, from here on out for a while, posts are scheduled ahead of time because Henry is here! If you want to see a picture, here ya go: https://www.instagram.com/p/BPTtw5KA5fb/ )
I started off with SuperMoon Lacquer Mystic Mountain, which I received in a swap with another blogger. This is a multi chrome polish that shifts from blue to purple to green. The green was much more alive & glowy in person.
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!
Morning all! I’ve been trying really hard to get some photos edited and posts typed up, but obviously you can see how well that went. But I made it for today! I’m back with my Pick Three Polishes series where I randomly pick three untried polishes out of my stash, swatch them and then attempt to make nail art with them. For today’s post I’ve used Daisy Island Oasis (a gift from Michelle at Manic Talons!), Formula X Voodoo, and ILNP Home Sweet Home.
Daisy (brand name) Island Oasis is a beautiful bright teal green. It isn’t as bright as my photos show, but I took about 50 pictures and gave up trying to get color accuracy, tbh. LOL. 😀 This is 2 coats plus top coat but it’s almost a OCW.
Formula X Voodoo is a metallic pink holographic polish. The holographic effect is more noticeable in real life, even inside. Continue reading
