L’Oreal Nail Polish The Muse’s Attitude + The Mystic’s Fortune

purchased myself buttonHello wonderful readers! Thank you all for your lovely comments yesterday – I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one who has been having blah days. LOL! Awhile back I was polish hunting at Ross (because you never know when they’ll have good stuff!) and I found a package of L’Oreal polishes. I ended up really liking two, and have them to show you today! 🙂

L’Oreal The Muse’s Attitude [affiliate link] is this glowy green that shift slightly to a darker blue-ish purple. This is 2 coats with Barielle top coat:

If you can buy these, you definitely should. I was actually surprised on the formula; usually L’Oreal’s formula is so dang thin and always floods my cuticles, but this time the formula was so much better! I’d love to know which of these you prefer, so hit me up in the comments!

Get Lucky Nail Art Challenge: Ireland-Inspired

It’s day two of our Get Lucky Nail Art Challenge, and today it’s Ireland-Inspired. This category includes anything Ireland: the flag, the flowers, plaids, crests, claddaghs, the countryside, etc.

I decided to try for a partly cloudy sky with green landscape and Irish flowers. I used A Girl Obsessed It Rains Diamonds on Jupiter and Wet n Wild Teal Slowly and See for the sky, with WNW A Blank Canvas for the clouds. For the green, I used L’Oreal Hyde Park (lighter green) with Revlon Balsam Fir (darker green).

I did a bit of research, and I found that a native Irish flower is St. Patricks Cabbage, which seemed appropriate for the challenge! The flowers were done with Jessica Yellow Lightning, Jessica Sharktooth, and Jessica Conch Shell. On my ring finger, I decided to try to do a claddagh ring, which didn’t really turn out well at all! I used OPI L.A.M.B. and Black Onyx to create it.

What do you think? I like how my flowers came out, but really not happy about that claddagh. LOL! I can’t wait to see what everyone else did, let’s look!

I’d like to thank everyone who commented and supported me during yesterday’s #RAK4Lucy. I really did have an amazing day, and my heart was so full it was almost bursting. I didn’t do any of the random acts of kindness for acclaim but rather to focus on giving to others instead of being insular in my grief. Thank you to those who sent messages and also did random acts of kindness. You all are amazing! Until tomorrow,

L’Oreal Gold Dust Nail Polish: Too Dimensional

purchased myself buttonGood morning everyone! How is your day going so far? I’m up and at ’em with a large cup of coffee, trying to wake my eyelids up. 😉 I have to apologize to weathermen (people?) after yesterday’s post. We ended up getting a few inches (though not the 9 inches they predicted!).

Today, I have for you swatches of Too Dimensional, from L’Oreal’s Gold Dust nail polish line. I’ve already reviewed Hidden Gems, and Sexy in Sequins.

The formula on this was just as the other two – slightly thick but workable – and I’ve used 2 coats on this one as well.

The gold almost edges the blue out without topcoat, but I think it’s a nice balance between the blue and the gold.

The next three photos were all with 3 coats of topcoat.

As you can see, applying topcoat helps bring out that blue a bit more, but that gold is still hanging on!

I didn’t think I’d end up liking this one as much as I do, but now it’s my favorite of the three. With or without topcoat, I really think this is the best. Have you picked up any of these Gold Dust nail polishes yet? I had the hardest time tracking these three down, unfortunately. Since these are limited edition, grab them while you can!

Later today I’m linking up as part of FingerFood’s Theme Weeks Nail Art!
