Morning all! This morning I have a fun thermal manicure to show you with Polish ‘M Trans-Allegheny and Turtle Tootsie Polishes Frankenstein’s Mask.
Trans-Allegheny is a light purple that shifts to a blurple to a deeper purple, with iridescent micro flakes. (Psst, it’s sold out as an individual, but you can still buy the 4-piece Halloween collection from Polish ‘M!) It looks like it dries textured but it doesn’t. It has a smooth application. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
I decided to pair it with Frankenstein’s Mask [press sample]. Here’s a reminder of what that looks like! (Psst, this is still available as an individual listing at Turtle Tootsie Polishes!)
Good Monday morning everyone! Now that we are in the swing of school stuff, I’m hoping that I’ll have a bit more time to do stuff but I’m a little doubtful. Okay, a lot doubtful. Distraction in the form of nail art? Why that sounds great to me!
I started with Baroness X Rainbow Serpent on my Rainbow Serpent is a blue to green shifting polish. I had good coverage in one coat but this is 2 coats, with Darling Diva Polish Mermaid Pee over the top. Continue reading
Happy Monday to you all! Tomorrow I will have a 7 month old in the house! He is such a cute lil stinker who gets into everything and has 6 teeth. Lately I’ve had zero time to swatch polishes so I’ve been relying on manicures and swatches I’ve done months ago – like today’s manicure comes to you from June! Let’s check out this mani with KBShimmer Cubicle Pusher, Polish ‘M The House Always Wins, and Baroness X Panty Dropper.
KBShimmer Cubicle Pusher is a purple toned brown holographic polish. Pretty straightforward but it’s pretty! This had good consistency and applied well. This is 2 coats and no top coat.
Hi everyone! It’s the start of March, and I don’t know about you but I always feel like the beginning of March is spring (though usually that’s when Montana gets a ton of snow!). So let’s celebrate with Polish ‘M Spring Prototype 21 and 27 from last year.
Prototype 21 is a lilac based crelly polish with glitters of blue, pink, yellow, lime green and though it’s imperceptible to the eye it does have a golden flake shimmer. Formula is thin, and unfortunately it dried lumpy because of the glitters. This is 3 coats plus top coat.
Prototype 27 is a creamy based crelly polish with glitters of yellow, pink, white, blue, and grey; it also has beautiful gold shimmer. Formula had a good thickness but it was clumpy on the brush because of the glitters. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
Though the formula isn’t my favorite, I liked Prototype 27 the best. What do you think of these two?
Hello all! I hope you are having a good day. Today I have 3 Polish ‘M polishes to show you: Beach Walk, Key Lime, and Tropical Mango. These are all from last year.
Beach Walk is a light sky blue based crelly polish with glitters of dark blue, aqua, light blue, and purple. Formula was very sheer, had a good thickness, and the glitters spread well; it does dry matte. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
Key Lime is a light green based crelly polish with glitters of blue, green, lime green, and dark blue. Formula was very sheer with a good thickness; it does dry matte. The patchiness you see on the nails was not really apparent in real life. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
Tropical Mango is a pinky orange based crelly polish with glitters of red, pink, purple. Formula was sheer with a good thickness; it does dry matte. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
Surprisingly, Tropical Mango ended up being my favorite. Which one do you like best?
I was feeling super meh about doing my nails one week and decided to google “striped nail art designs” when this manicure by Paulina’s Passions popped up. I wanted to do something similar and here’s what I came up with using Pretty & Polished Weather the Storm, Polish ‘M Festival of Fall, and KBShimmer Poppy Kisses.
I started off with Weather the Storm on all fingers except my thumb and ring finger. This is a stormy grey-blue dusty creme. Good formula, though I needed 3 coats for evenness. This is 3 coats plus top coat.
On my thumb and ring finger, I used Festival of Fall. This is a “teal leaning dark blue base with blue/green/gold duochrome shimmer, galaxy holo, magenta holo shreds and multi-iridescent flakies“. This is 3 coats plus top coat.
Let me tell you, I feel like I should have just stopped here. But did I? Nope. 😛
Then I used striping tape and KBShimmer Poppy Kisses to create the rest of the manicure.
Maybe it was the fact that I was dreading doing all that work on my opposite hand, but this mani didn’t last much longer after taking the photos! But I’d love to know what you think of it! 🙂
Happy Thanksgiving Day to all my American readers and happy Thursday to everyone else! 😛 I hope that you will have an enjoyable day, and failing that, plenty of booze to help you get through any political discussions. 😉 Just a quick post to show you my manicure that I have on my nails today with Polish ‘M Instant Human (Just Add Coffee), Bad Bitch Polish Chestnut, and Fancy Gloss Mystery Box Prototype.
I used 2 coats plus top coat of Bad Bitch Polish Chestnut on my index finger. Just like all of BBP cremes, this was pretty much flawless, and didn’t need top coat for shininess.
On my pinky finger, I used 3 thin coats of Polish ‘M Instant Human (Just Add Coffee). This is a dark brown base with gold shimmer, gold, silver, orange, green, blue, and purple glitters. Good formula, a teeny bit thin for me but I like my formulas on the thicker side.
On my thumb, middle, and ring fingers, I started off with a base of white. Then on my thumb and ring fingers, I used a Fancy Gloss Mystery Box Prototype. This is an orange base with red and green-gold teeny flakes.
On my middle finger, I used the Fancy Gloss and Chestnut in a needle drag technique. It isn’t my best needle drag but I’m okay with it. I finished off with a bow charm (last used in this Barbie freehand nail art manicure).
Anyway, this was a fun little manicure to do! I hope you have an enjoyable day – I get to splurge and have a piece of pie, with the doctor’s blessing even! That reminds me, I haven’t written an update on this pregnancy lately and I really should – so much to say. But, another day!
