So when I was swatching the Zodiac nail polish collection from Hot Topic’s Blackheart Beauty line, I thought that Capricorn looked familiar. I went through my OPI polishes and pulled out three I thought looked similar. Continue reading

Stripe Nail Art with OPI My Voice is a Little Norse, Lucky Lucky Lavender, Vant to Bite My Neck

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
OPI My Voice is a Little Norse, 3 coats and no top coat
OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender, 3 coats
OPI Vant To Bite My Neck, 2 coats

I’m back with more purple polish to show you for OPI Mad Love Color of the Month! I had fun with this but what’s silly is that when I went to paint on my lines, I couldn’t get them straight. *face palm* I just rolled with it and made them all diagonal. 😀 So now it looks like I did it on purpose. 😛

OPI Catherine the Grape with accent nail #vintagepolishfriday

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
OPI Catherine the Grape, 2 coats plus top coat
Nicole Diary Chameleon 3D Nail Studs Triangles

So I finally had a hot second to pull out an old polish to join in Of Life and Lacquer‘s Vintage Polish Fridays. I love to see older polish shades get some love! I don’t know if I’ve ever worn this as a full manicure before this, kind of kicking myself tbh. It’s absolutely delightful! And of course, I couldn’t leave well enough alone, so I stuck on some nail studs – but just for an accent nail. Oh, and this also works for OPI Mad Love Color of the Month which is purple!

Layered magnetic nail polish manicure with KBShimmer and OPI

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
OPI Turn On the Northern Lights, 2 coats and no top coat. Good formula, a little on the thin side. If I was just wearing this on its own, I would have done 3 coats. It’ll stain your nails!

KBShimmer So Jelly, 1 coat plus top coat. Use a light hand, basically float the polish on. I wish the unicorn pee shifting to green was easier to see on the nail. :/

KBShimmer Orbits and Pieces, 1 coat plus top coat. I used a light hand with this as well, since I wanted the beauty of So Jelly to shine through.

Okay, so I’ve currently become obsessed with magnetic polishes and I bought the whole KBShimmer Launch Party magnetic collection; I don’t think I’ve bought a whole collection (especially one so large) ever!

OPI We’ll Always Have Paris Suede compared to Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Virgo

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Virgo, 2 coats and no top coat
OPI We’ll Always Have Paris Suede, 2 coats and no top coat

So while I was swatching the new Zodiac nail polishes from Hot Topic (still no luck with the Sagittarius though!), I thought that Virgo looked really familiar! I decided to pull out my bottle of OPI We’ll Always Have Paris Suede and do a little comparison.

In the bottle, they look super similar, right? The BhB is a little cooler and silvery than the OPI.  Continue reading

Simple Stripe Nail Art with OPI Polish and Bad Bitch Polish

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
OPI Nail Polish I Can Never Hut Up, 3 coats plus top coat. Formula was thin but not unwieldy.
Bad Bitch Polish Olive You

I based this mani on this one I saw from koba_nails_studio on instagram.

Good Sunday evening everyone, I hope you’ve had a good weekend. My husband didn’t work today for the first time in 3 weeks so it was really nice to have him home. Though I’ll be honest, I’m kind of down tonight because I realized/it hit home that the anniversary of my mom’s death is Wednesday. Like, I always know the date of it, but I just got to thinking about it tonight. And I just … it makes me so incredibly sad because of everything she has missed. Everything that has happened since her death that I wish I could share with her – the highs and the lows. The kids and I will still be doing the random acts of kindness in her honor, but tonight I’m allowing myself to feel the grief and sorrow over her death. I guess this muted mani matches my mood.
