mmm.. Gold Glitter!

Mm.... Glitter.. Gold Glitter! I'm in love!! well.. kind of lol. This is Sinful Colors 'All about you' This is a clear base with small copper(almost burnt sienna) and gold micro glitters. Obviously this is a topper, but who doesn't like straight glitter sometimes?! :D

I can still see my tips in the light, but almost full opacity with three coats. I used three coats here with no base or top coat.

This reminds me of Christmastime for some reason. I think this would look beautiful layered of a burgundy or red.

Well I hope you enjoy!! have a great day!

Gray's Anatomy.. I don't even watch that show

I bought a ton of Wet N Wild Fast Dry polishes when they came out in late 2010. I haven't worn too many of them, but I really have been meaning to! so last night, I did!

This is 'Gray's Anatomy' This is four coats, with no base or top coat.

First thoughts: a bit sheer, reminds me of putting an alien's skin on my nails lol. Gray's Anatomy is a steely gray, with a purplish color, and also a sea foam-ish green. This is pretty opalescent. I really like it, although I had to build it up, and that I'm not too sure about it

On to the pictures!

ahh!! my tips!!

Well thanks for reading.. have a great day

So everytime I go to Sally's they always have some discounted China Glaze, and as a sucker, I usually always pick some up, lol. Here I'm swatching 'Peace on Earth'. This came out during the 2010 Holiday Collection. This is 2 coats with no base or top coat. This reached full opacity with two coats. This is a gorgeous olive green, and dries to a glassy shimmer.. in love love love!! Not just for winter time, looks good this time of year too! Hope you enjoy! have a great day!
I love this color! What do you think?

Dream On Baby

'Dream On' is a matte neon from Sinful Colors. This is a wonderful Fuchsia. It goes on a big sheer, but in my history most neon's do. It's a beautiful matte and  even better with a top coat.. I love, love, love it!

This is three coats with no base, and with Seche Vite as a top coat.

With or without a top coat... I LOVE this color!!

Thank you for reading, I hope you have a great day!!!

Copper Penny..woohoo a foil!

So I've been picking up some Revlon polishes lately, and this one is 'Copper Penny'. I am so into foil finishes lately... lubbs dems! Check it out :)

This is two coats, with no base and no top coat. 'Copper Penny' is a bit more taupe than an actual penny, but still really pretty. It comes out lighter than what is shown in the bottle.

Sorry about all the light reflection..i forgot to clean my camera lens lol.

I was doing swatches back to back, I didn't get 'Lubu Heels' all the way off lol

 Thanks for reading! Have a great day!

Milani Holo

So if you've been keeping up with my blog, you know I recently won a giveaway, you can read about it here. One of the polishes I won was Miliani's 3D holographic in 'Digital'. I'm swatching that today.

First thoughts.. not a complete holo, just micro glitters and bigger flecks. great formula, super cute color. And it still shines crazy in the sun, so who cares if it isn't a complete holo :)

This is 'Nail life gripper' base coat, four coats of 'Digital', and one coat of Seche Vite on top.

The clouds kept covering the sun.. Ack!

my camera wanted to photo my deck instead.

I still see tip, but without direct sunlight, they're not visible

Final thoughts, If you can get this, def do. It's so pretty, and girly. Light enough to wear to work, or class. I love this!

Thanks for reading, have a great day, and Easter!!

Semi-New Sinful Colors

Well technically these aren't really really new, but a few months Lol. I recently went to my walgreens and picked up some new colors. Unicorn and Fig. I wasn't going to pick up either of these, but I saw so many awesome swatches I had to!

I also tried something I never had before... Polka Dots.. this is a Polka Dot Fail :)

 Unicorn is two coats, with no base coat and no top coat.

Unicorn is a yellow creme without shimmer or sparkle. It is light yellow, and perfect for Easter-time/ Spring time.This is a perfect canary yellow, and sort of what I think of when singing "itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini" lol.

This is pretty goopy, and really not my favorite. It looks so amazing in the bottle and the color does pretty transfer to the nail, but it's formula is kind of ridiculous

 Fig is two coats, although it could be opaque in one if your coat was thick enough.

I love this color!! it is a perfect berry shimmer. It stands between a fuchsia and purple.. with just enough shimmer to sparkle in the sun, but not be gaudy.

I would love this color for a little pop of color in fall/winter months, but this close to summer and I'm still loving it!

 I did this with a toothpick. They are not straight, nor in unison. But it was my first time and I'm pretty darn proud :)

All I did was put some of Unicorn on a piece of paper, dip the end of the tooth pick in and dot it on my nail.

I noticed the more polish I put on the tooth pick the more dense and bigger the dot would be.

Anyway.. I lubbs dem:) they're cute together

This is during removal. I thought this was toooo funny..

Thanks for reading!! Have a great night!
