Sinful Colors 2336 Rebel Rebel Transforming Top Coat
CrowsToes Nail Color Well, isn’t that just f@#ing marble-ous, upcoming polish for April Polish Pickup Pack
Morning everyone! I’m sitting here with a cup of freshly ground and brewed coffee and for the moment at least, I feel like I could conquer the world. I’m sure that feeling will go away any minute so I better get while the getting’s good. 😀
Lauri, the head crow over at CrowsToes Nail Color, sent me her polish for April’s Polish Pickup Pack. I’ve been wanting to try this tutorial for awhile, so I figured why not? I have to say, I think it came out spectacularly! I will have swatches of this polish soon, but for now remember that it will be available April 6 through the 9 only at Polish Pickup Pack, and it will be $12. Continue reading

I talked to you about how I was feeling on Sunday and I guess that feeling hasn’t gone away. My kids still want to do the annual random acts of kindness in honor of my mom; to be honest, I don’t feel like doing it. I wanna stay at home and eat my feelings and not change out of my pajamas. But I’m gonna buck up and do it for my kids. And then maybe tonight, I’ll sit with a piece of cheesecake and some wine and just cry.
As always, I hope you join me in doing a random act of kindness today in honor of someone you love and cherish. Hashtag it #RAOK4Lucy so I can see too.
Polish ‘M The Great Pumpkin, 2 coats. Good formula, if a little sheer; if I was going to wear it by itself, I would have done a third coat to cover my nail line completely.
Sinful Colors Coco Bae
Funky Fingers Dark Knight
Formula X Naughty Newton, 2 coats. This dries textured. Good formula, just a tad sheer.
Formula X Oh! Zone, 1 coat plus 2 coats of top coat over Naughty Newton.
Un-frog-gettable Cuticle Cover so I didn’t have to do so much clean up. This stuff works really nicely, is inexpensive, and comes in unscented.
This is my current mani and though the tiger stripe isn’t perfect (and my top coat smeared a bit), I really love how it came out. I haven’t done an animal print manicure in quite some time, and I got this idea after watching a video from kombucha_witch_ on instagram. (Go watch, I’ll wait.)
I first used Coco Bae, and just kept going over it on the stamp head until it started drying out and pulling up. Then I applied it to the nail. Then I did the same with the black polish, I just used more of it. Of course, my other hand came out much nicer. Continue reading
Sinful Colors Undead Red, 2 coats and no top coat
Sinful Colors Bite Me, 1 coat over Undead Red and no top coat; 3 coats by itself and no top coat
Undead Red was runny, the black shreds are sparse AND they stick up. Boo.
Bite Me (1 coat over Undead Red above)
Bite Me (3 coats and no top coat) was very runny and sheer but the glitter had okay distribution.

Tonic Polish Sophia 2017
Bad Bitch Polish Crabapple
Sinful Colors Black on Black
This is my current mani! I’m not sure if I like it or not, it’s kinda trippy though. I was following along with this tutorial from alla_nails but kind of deviated at the end. I did start off with This Game is Rigged as a base, I’ll show you that swatch at a later date. Sophia just friggin’ glows though!
