Hey everyone! I thought that for once I’d prep a bit so that I could show you a series of manicures for Valentine’s Day! Even though a few days ago I showed you a polka dot rose manicure, I saw this manicure on instagram and decided to do my take on it. Bonus: it glows under blacklight!
Moonflower Polish Lemonade
Sinful Colors Late Night Haute
OPI Tile Art to Warm Your Heart, 2 coats
1 coat of matte top coat
1 coat of glossy top coat
Another current mani, though I’m getting horrid tip-wear with Tile Art to Warm Your Heart so who knows how long it’ll stay. I was inspired by this manicure from chitchatnails.
1 coat base
KBShimmer Insert Coin [June 2018 Polish Pickup Pack], 3 coats. I would say this is a burnished coin base and when a magnet is applied, a gold band appears and the base shifts from blue to purple.
Moon Shine Mani The One With All the Candy [February 2018 Polish Pickup Pack], 3 coats. I would say this is a multichrome red-orange-pink base with similar multichrome flakies.
OPI Check Out the Old Geysirs. A baby blue base with intense blue shimmer.
a random white polish in the marbled nails
Dreamland Lacquer Ooh Shiny QDTC, 1 coat
This is a mani I had created quite awhile ago – at least a few months. Yes, yes, I’m still working my way through old manis. Good news is, I’m catching up! Continue reading
OPI The Thrill of Brazil, 1 coat!
OPI Midnight in Moscow
Cult Nails Nevermore
Sinful Colors 2284 White on Time
KBShimmer Beach Please
A Girl Obsessed Fractured Spirit
I was perusing instagram the other day (as one does when one is ignoring one’s children *ahem*) and noticed someone I follow (samantha1027) posted a photo about #polishswatchsunday. Curious about it, I clicked on the profile and wanted to jump in! The prompt for this Sunday is “toolbox red” and I pulled out an oldie: OPI The Thrill of Brazil. And because I can’t leave well enough alone, I created some nail art to go with. 🙂 Continue reading
OPI Sailing & Nailing, 2 coats
OPI Color Paints Turquoise Aesthetic
OPI Comet in the Sky, 1 coat
KBShimmer Oh Matte!
Remember last week I showed you veil nails with neons? And a few days ago with a magnetic veil nail look? Well, I’m back today with a different kind of veil nail! I started off with Sailing & Nailing, which is slightly finicky but not too bad. Continue reading
Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Purple Matte Sparkle, 3 coats on pointer and ring fingers [previously swatched]
OPI Ink. Suede, 2 coats on pinky finger
Wet N Wild Happy Hour Hop, 3 coats on middle finger [previously swatched]
Another comparison for you! I hope you find these helpful, I always like to know when a polish comes out that might be a duplicate (dupe) for an older (not available anymore) polish.
Today I’m comparing Purple Matte Sparkle to Happy Hour Hop to Ink. Suede. As you can see, no dupes here! The WnW is way more sheer than I remember. And the OPI stains. So I would definitely choose the BHB – especially at the price point!
KBShimmer You Rocket My World, 2 coats over China Glaze Liquid Leather
Sally Hansen Champagne Supernova, 2 coats [press sample, previously swatched]

water slide decal from who knows where 😀
multichrome nail disc gems from also who knows where (actually I think Nicole Diary)
This was such a fun mani! My husband doesn’t often understand my mis-matched manis but honestly, I don’t care. 😀 I mean, my socks don’t even usually match and it drives him crazy.
Aww, I love you too, KBShimmer! ❤ What, you don’t see a vague shape of a heart here? Don’t ask me how I accomplished that because I have no idea.
