Sinful Colors 2476 Shimmy Shimmy from Vanessa collection, 3 coats plus top coat. This is a bright blue polish with strong purple shimmer and cobalt blue flakes. I was disappointed in how it applied, it was super sheer and pulled away at my tips.
L.A. Colors 116 Swiss Coffee. I would call this a cafe au lait color, a lovely neutral.
Moonflower Polish Sprinkles from Summer Neons June 2018. This is an insanely bright pink neon.
Shleee Polish Ghost Bird, 2 coats plus top coat over Blackheart Beauty Black Vamp Satin Matte (1 coat, previously swatched). Before a magnet is applied, this is a concrete blue-gray with pink/red to gold/green shimmer. After magnet is applied, a bright blue stripe appears that shifts purple. Good coverage and formula.
Man, this week has just been such a gray week so far. I am not enthused to do the things I need to do, as a result of gray weather. School stuff, family stuff, house stuff. Blergh. At any rate, I’m trying to get myself together enough to write blog posts and edit photos. Even though this isn’t the oldest mani I haven’t shown you lately (slacker-itis over here), it’s one of my favorites! Continue reading
1 coat of base coat
Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Midnight Galaxy, 1 coat as a base applied thickly.
Bee’s Knees Lacquer The Band of Exiles [not in stock as of this writing]. Without magnet applied, it is an orange to green base with green/orange/yellow iridescent flakes; when magnet is applied I see a brilliant green to pink/purple shift.
Shleee Polish Psychedelic [not in stock as of this writing]. Without magnet applied, it is a royal purple to magenta to yellow/orange to green multichrome polish with blue/red shimmer; when magnet is applied, I see a brighter pink/purple/yellow shift.
Tonic Polish Jubilee [in stock as of this writing]. Without magnet applied, it is a primarily mossy green to blue to yellow to purple multichrome polish; when magnet is applied, I see bright gold to brighter green come alive.
Dreamland Lacquer Ooh Shiny QDTC, 1 coat
Yeah, you’re getting another magnetic manicure. I’m just an impatient bish and wanted to share my current mani with you straight away. I’m going to revisit each of these and share swatches with you but for now, let’s get to this mani! Continue reading
1 coat base
Shleee Polish Reptilian, 3 coats. Formula was a bit sheer but application was really easy. I would describe this as a yellow-green-teal base. Apply a magnet and a flash of gold shoots through and reveals a more emerald green to teal base.
Dreamland Lacquer Ooh Shiny, 1 coat
You know, I just need to sit my happy butt down and get posts scheduled. Because it really makes my blogging life so much easier. It also takes forever to do a month in advance, which is why I’ve been avoiding doing it. 😀 Continue reading
Sinful Colors 2432 Rave New World
Shleee Polish Nightmarish, 3 coats plus top coat
KBShimmer Solar Flair [previously used]
I really need to sit down and swatch polishes but I just don’t wanna. I just want to do my nails in pretty ways. 😀
Shleee Polish Dream Within a Dream
Don Deeva Acid Crush [previously swatched]
You all know I’ve been on this kick with magnetic polishes, and you’ve seen my previous attempts at magnetic + thermal nails (including magnetic thermal flame drag nail art, magnetic and thermal gradient nail art) so here’s another one! I couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out.
Shleee Polish Area X, 3 coats plus top coat. Slightly sheer but this is a beyond gorgeous magnetic polish!
Polish ‘M Tip Tau-pe Through the Tulips, 3 coats
Jessica Cosmetics Starfish Glow, 3 coats plus top coat
Anyone else having their kids drive them crazy already this summer, or am I just that special? 😛 I love my kids but goodness gracious this summer might just kill me.
This is how I started off this manicure and the more I looked at it, the more I realized something felt off. I just needed a bit more extra.
Fancy Gloss Sodalite, 3 coats
Shleee Polish Cosmological, 2 coats plus top coat
This was my first attempt at a thermal + magnetic manicure match up and it didn’t work (I actually did this one before the thermal/magnetic drag marble nail art or the thermal/magnetic gradient nail art). But it is totally still pretty! Continue reading
