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!

Marbled magnetic mani with OPI, Moon Shine Mani, KBShimmer

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
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

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

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.

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Purple Matte Sparkle, Wet N Wild Happy Hour Hop, OPI Ink Suede comparison swatch | Be Happy And Buy 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!
