Wandering the isles of my local department store I found a lonely Color Club all by it’s lonesome on clearance for $2.00, since I’m a sucker for blues I couldn’t pass it up!
This gem is called Moody Blue, and I’ve honestly never (never!) heard of it, nor can I find any information on it at all. It’s a bright blue cream that is a dupe for Nails, INC Baker Street and Sinful Color Endless Blue. I was so happy to find this, because Baker Street is a lemming of mine.
Formula wise I had a bit of trouble with it, if you don’t let the first coat dry completely it will pull and streak. Once I figured that out, it wasn’t too bad. On the accent nail is OPI Crown Me Already!
Have you ever heard of this color before? What collection was it from?
Kittens again?! I know, I can’t help it though, these decals are just so adorable.
This was just a quick simple gradient manicure with all OPI colors, this is Can’t Find My Czechbook with Which is Witch sponged on the tips. I am seriously so in love with both these polishes, I think I might grab them in Gel color just to have back ups.
If you follow me on twitter (here) or instagram (here) you’ll know that I recently moved from Ann Arbor to Washington D.C. (Yay!) I’m working on getting my license switched over from MI to DC, and soon I’ll be taking on clients. Let me know if you’re in the area and would like a manicure or pedicure! ^_^
I actually gasped when I saw this polish. This is from OPI’s newest Euro collection called OPI… Eurso Euro and if you don’t have this one, run (right now) and grab it. It’s a perfect indigo. An indigo to end all indigo polishes. It’s fantastically pigmented, and a tad bit purple leaning and I love it to bits already.
This is two coats, just because I’m obsessive, but I could have gotten away with only using one.
I should have left well enough alone, but I went ahead and attached a small 3D crystal studded bow to it, though I do like it.
What do you think?
WHOOO LIQUID SAND.
Can you tell that I like this stuff??
This is from the new Mariah Carey collection from OPI, called Liquid Sand. It’s a texture polish, that has a slightly rough, bumpy feeling. This is called Can’t Let Go, and I love it to the moon and back.
I must say I was fully prepared to hate it. I turned my nose up at the thought of gritty bumpy polish. I mean, it even goes against the name “polish”. I grabbed it on a whim, a mini bottle to take a whack at it and as soon as my nails were dry I got back in the car and bought a full bottle. I also fully plan on buyinganotherbottle just so I don’t run out!
What do you think about this polish?
I really love all the rainbow manicures that are out now, so I wanted to try it myself.
First I painted on French Quarter For Your Thoughts, then started dotting away! I kept my friend Roy G. Biv in mind while dotting, so here are the colors I used in order: China Glaze Hey Sailor, OPI Red Lights Ahead, Where? OPI on Collins Ave, China Glaze Papaya Punch, China Glaze Happy Go Lucky, Sally Hansen Lickety-Split Lime, China Glaze Gaga for Green, Barry M Cyan, Sally Hansen Fairy Teal, SpaRitual Undercurrent, and last but not least, SpaRitual Heliotrope!
Whooo! That was a handful! What do you think of the doticure??
Whoooo!! I love Fall. It is by far my most favorite time of the year, and I look forward to it all year. With this mani I wanted to recreate a manicure that looked like a bonfire, or as close to it as possible!
I started off with a base coat of OPI We’ll Always Have Paris, followed by sponging of I’m Suzi & I’m a Chocoholic, Bullish on OPI, Red Lights Ahead… Where?, A Roll in the Hague, Take the Stage and China Glaze’s Electrify.
And, since I don’t know when to quit, I matte-ified it:
Which version do you like better?
I recently went to the International Salon and Spa Expo in Chicago and I just had to do my nails up!
I used OPI Funky Donkey, which is one of my favorite colors; Orly Cupcakes and Unicorns, Essie Pure Pearlfection, Orly Can’t Be Tamed and one star, picked out and daintily placed from Wet n Wild Stars and Stripes. Then because I have a problem and don’t know when enough is enough, I slapped on two giant roses from NailGrafx.
I love this design so much, it’s so busy! What do you think?
YAY, more new indie polishes to show off!!
This is the first in a set that I got from a new indie maker, Paper Heart Productions.
This is Sugar and Spice, a beautifully unique polish, and I honestly don’t have anything like it in my stash.
It’s got tiny holographic pink glitters, then large gold and silver holographic squares. The squares were what drew me to the polish at first, I don’t see it used often and it’s so neat. I am actually blown away at how beautiful the squares are, these things are beyond breathtaking, when they hit sunlight (or really any type of light), they just explode with color. I had a time trying to decide what to layer this with, so I went with OPI’s Who the Shrek are You? and Andrea’s Choice Tightrope.
I seriously cannot say enough good things about this polish (or Kelley the owner), and here is the best news- if you’d like to try it yourself, Paper Heart Nails is only $4.50 for a full sized bottle and $3.00 for a mini!! Shazam that’s a deal! Not only that, but she has a great indie starter kit that ships internationally if you’d like to make your own.
Disclosure- Products were provided to me by the manufacturer for my opinion and honest review. See here for more information.
It’s still Halloween here; I can post this without feeling bad!
This beauty is Spectral Pup by Dollish Polish, and it’s a humdinger. I caught the restock sale of them recently so I was able to snag a few of her Halloween Nightmare Before Christmas polishes at a steal.
This is based on Zero, the adorable ghost dog from the movie, it’s a glow-in-the-dark glitter bomb, with a clear(ish) base with large and small orange and white hexes, and large and small white squares. It also seems to have smaller blue/green flashes to it. I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls from the Spider-Man collection as the undies.
Now onto the part you’re waiting for, a night shot!
