Thermal Flame Drag Marble manicure with Polish ‘M and Fancy Gloss

Purchased by Me buttonSo, I’ll be honest, I can’t find my notes on this mani for the life of me. Logically, they should be in my nail notebook that I write all manis and swatches down in, but it’s not. And I’ve looked multiple times. I guess I’m just winging it today. 🙂

Now I know I’m not the first to do a flame drag marble manicure, and I’m sure I’m not the first to do a flame drag marble manicure with a thermal polish. I’ve seen multiple people who have done much better manis than me do these techniques. Continue reading

Halloween nail art manicures

Purchased by Me buttonI know, I know. Halloween has come and gone. And I would have had this post up on Halloween or before but I’ll be honest, I’ve really been struggling with anxiety this week and being seriously stressed and overwhelmed (still am 😦 ). So blogging took a backseat (thank you, past me for scheduling a ton of posts ahead of time) while I’ve been trying to sort myself out. I’m not completely sorted out (who is these days anyway?) but I wanted to sit down and show you the manicures I’ve had on my hands over the last couple of weeks leading up to Halloween. I’ve done a blood drip manicure, a disappearing/reappearing manicure, and a Frankenstein themed manicure. A copious amount of pictures ahead 😉

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.

Criss-Cross manicure with Baroness X, Polish ‘M, Darling Diva Polish

Press Sample buttonGood 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!

Manicure with KBShimmer Cubicle Pusher, Polish ‘M The House Always Wins, Baroness X Panty Dropper

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.

Polish ‘M Spring Prototype 21 + 27 nail polish swatches + review

Purchased by Me buttonHi 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.

Polish 'M Spring Prototype 27 | Be Happy And Buy Polish

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?
