I’ve been sitting on this Sinful Colors for…4 months? Something like that. I just couldn’t find anything to pair it with that made it look good while not overpowering whatever polish I put it with. I think I made a good decision, do you?

Purchased by Me button
Polishes used:
1 coat of base coat
Sinful Colors 2509 Defiant Matte Finish, 2 coats. This is from the Radical Matte Finish line and the only one I picked up. In some lights it looks rather grapey purple, in others a more mauve-y purple. Application was easy, almost a One-Coat Wonder.

Do you know how long it’s been since I’ve picked up an actual book and read it? Ugh. I used to love reading so much, immersing myself in the world of whatever book, imagining me right there with the characters (I have an overactive imagination!). Lately (lately? more like it’s been years!) with the kids and their activities and my own interests, I just haven’t picked up a book. Which is a shame because I have a bookcase that is literally stuffed to the brim with books.

Marbled magnetic manicure with Sinful Colors, L.A. Colors, Moonflower Polish, and Shleee Polish

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
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

A few weekends ago was my gramma’s 100th birthday celebration (her birthday is in February, but had the party in the summer) and I created these nails that weekend. I actually smooshed the neons around on a plastic baggie, let them dry overnight, and applied them the next morning.

I was perusing instagram the other day (as one does when one is ignoring one’s children *ahem*) and noticed someone I follow (samantha1027) posted a photo about #polishswatchsunday. Curious about it, I clicked on the profile and wanted to jump in! The prompt for this Sunday is “toolbox red” and I pulled out an oldie: OPI The Thrill of Brazil. And because I can’t leave well enough alone, I created some nail art to go with. πŸ™‚ Continue reading
