Well this is the last of the “nice” Valentine’s Day manicures, and tomorrow you get an anti-Valentine’s Day manicure. Have you enjoyed this series? Should I do something similar for St. Patrick’s Day? Let me know! 🙂 Continue reading
Sinful Colors Witches Please
Polish ‘M Bats About You, 3 coats
2 coats of QDTC
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?
Moonflower Polish Lemonade
Sinful Colors Late Night Haute
OPI Tile Art to Warm Your Heart, 2 coats
1 coat of matte top coat
1 coat of glossy top coat
Another current mani, though I’m getting horrid tip-wear with Tile Art to Warm Your Heart so who knows how long it’ll stay. I was inspired by this manicure from chitchatnails.
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.
P.O.P Polish Watermelon BubbleSlick, 3 coats. Formula is good and buildable. “Primary colors: Pink, Hot Pink, Champagne, Blush, Tan; Secondary colors: Gold, Green; Tertiary: Cobalt, Turquoise, Grey”
1 coat of quick-dry top coat
1 coat of Sinful Colors Radical Matte top coat
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.
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
KBShimmer Just a Phase, 3 coats
Baroness X Fire Opal, 1 coat over Just a Phase
Sinful Colors Neon Collection 2017
KBShimmer Oh Matte, 1 coat
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.
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. 😀
