So, 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
I 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 😉
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?
