P.O.P Polish SurfSlick, 3 coats
L.A. Colors Flannel Grey, 2 coats

Oh man, I remember this mani! Not just because it was so striking but also because I’ve been growing my nails out since this mani – I had three really bad (down to the quick!) breaks on my swatching hand and my fingers just hurt.
L.A. Colors Sheer Perfection, 1 coat as base
P.O.P Polish BootylishSlick [bottle shot post]
L.A. Colors Metal Marvelous
1 coat matte top coat
This mani is one of those that I curse my apparent inability to take a good picture of a multichrome polish, in this case BootylishSlick. In real life, this mani was so damn gorgeous, but I could only capture a fraction of that beauty on camera. Continue reading
JReine Cosmetics Hiya Georgie [September 2018 Polish Pickup Pack], 3 coats
Bee’s Knees Lacquer It, 1 coat over Hiya Georgie
P.O.P Polish Radioactive Glass [press sample]
This is like a “kitchen sink” mani – keep throwing stuff at it and see what works. 😛 I’m not sure that the thermal really works under this but I did really love it!

Oh my gosh you all, it’s Doctor Who Day! The new Doctor premieres today and I’m so excited and jumping up and down. I’m unsure about a female Doctor but I’m more than willing to see where this newest season takes us.
Anyway…I’ve shown you swatches of the newest P.O.P Polishes and yesterday you saw two nail art manicures with a few of those new polishes. I really wanted to do something interesting with the blacklight reactive top coat from P.O.P Polish besides using it for its intended purpose. I decided to created swirled decals. I looked around and found some polishes that looked nice together, which included a magnetic and a mainstream blacklight reactive polish.
Yesterday I shared with you swatches of the Halloween polishes from P.O.P Polish (launching today!) and right now I’m back with two manicures I created with those polishes.
First up is this dry brush/gradient with FrankenSlick and Jack O Lantern. Doesn’t this look like copper that has a patina?
For this mani, I started with a base of Scared Slick and created a sponged gradient with it and Eye of Newt. It turned out incredible!
I have one more mani to show you but you will have to wait until tomorrow! 😀 It will be worth it, I promise. 😛 Hint: it has to do with the Radioactive Glass that is blacklight reactive.
Jack O Lantern
Eye of Newt
Hey everyone! I hope you know at this point how much I love the Pastel Oil Slicks from P.O.P Polish. Well, the maker was looking for swatchers for upcoming Halloween nail polishes and I jumped at the chance. I was sent 5 nail polishes and 3 top coats (a glossy, a matte, and blacklight reactive). These are launching tomorrow at the P.O.P Polish shop, so let’s get to it! 😀 Continue reading
1 coat of base polish
L.A. Colors 109 Blankie, a soft blue-grey creme polish.
Tonic Polish Helpless, 3 coats, a multichrome magnetic polish with indigo iridescent flakies. I see blue, green, teal. It was more see-through at 2 coats than I liked, hence the third coat.
Moonflower Polish I Just Can’t Wait (Polish Pickup Pack May 2018), a hot coral stamping polish.
P.O.P Polish SandSlick, 3 coats, a pastel multichrome. Primary colors: nude, blush, tan, pink gold; secondary colors: green, blue; tertiary colors: cobalt, lavender. Check, check, and check! Good, buildable formula.
1 coat of quick dry top coat
Do you know what I would do if money wasn’t an issue in my life? Besides setting up a non-profit for dental work for those who fall through the cracks, I’d never wash my makeup brushes again. I’d just give away my brushes when they got dirty and buy new ones. Wasteful, yes. But my goodness do I hate to wash my brushes!
