Mixed Animal Print holographic manicure with CrowsToes Nail Color, OPI, Turtle Tootsie Polishes, Painted Polish

Morning all! I hope that if you’re having a heat wave like we are in Montana, you’re staying cool! I am sweltering and not staying cool because my 6month old is on a nursing streak and he’s sweaty – which makes me sweaty and him more sweaty. Ugh. It’s a sweaty mess. How about a mani that isn’t a mess….or maybe it is? I dunno. At first I didn’t really like it but then it grew on me. Let me know at the end what you think.

CrowsToes Damned If You Do, Turtle Tootsie Polishes Aquarius, Painted Polish Gray Goddess  | Be Happy And Buy Polish

So I started off with OPI You’re So Vain-illa on my ring and pointer fingers. On my pointer finger, I used a giraffe print (maybe it’s a cheetah print?) decal and used Painted Polish Gray Goddess, then outlining with China Glaze Liquid Leather. I added some gems from Crystal Parade in the corner – didn’t really like how it turned out though. Continue reading

Turtle Tootsie Polishes 5 Months of Bills | Be Happy And Buy Polish

5 Months of Bills is a dark forest green metallic polish. I had good coverage with 3 thin coats plus top coat. Just make sure that you’re letting each coat dry before applying the next coat to prevent dragging.

I used 3 thin coats plus top coat. I had great coverage and the glitters spread evenly over each nail. The sparkle on this would just “pow” you in the face when you least expected it.

Turtle Tootsie Polishes Pumpkin Cheesecake top coat with 5 Months of Bills | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I also received a sample of Turtle Tootsie Polishes scented top coat in pumpkin cheesecake. In fact, that’s the top coat I used for both of these polishes!

I also used it on top of my manicure last week and I was pleasantly surprised. You do need to let it dry on your nails before you smell any scent. For the first day, I could smell the scent about 4 inches away from my face. The second day, the scent had faded somewhat but was still pleasant closer to your face. I am sensitive to smells but this was really lovely. Like a pumpkin scented candle following you around all day!

As I said, this duo will release Black Friday at midnight and is only available through Cyber Monday at midnight on Turtle Tootsie Polishes website. They will be $12 for the mini 6ml set or $20 for the 12ml set. The scented top coat will be able to be purchased with the duo for an extra $3. There will also be a store-wide sale for Black Friday weekend! Use the code “blackfriday25” for 25% off everything!

I’d love to know what you think about this splendid duo so holler at me in the comments below!
