Nails of the day!

Hello! I would like to start sharing more posts so I figured NOTD posts are a pretty good place to start. Short and sweet 🙂 For my first NOTD post I have some neon, holo, and glitter! The turquoise linear holo polish is Swerve from Liquid Sky Lacquer. Super smooth and opaque. 2 thin coats with a coat of Sally Hansen Color Frenzy textured glitter polish in Green Machine. The neon green polish is Grass Is Lime Greener from China Glaze. This polish takes 3 coats. Not the best formula :/  I used regular scotch tape to make the triangle shape. Before I removed the tape, I stamped a random line design using Pueen stamping plate pueen05. I then added a silver square stud. Topped it all with what else but Glisten & Glow’s HK Girl fast drying & super shiny top coat! Hope you enjoy my NOTD!!

Please excuse the hair! 3 furbabies does that lol!

Drip Drop Nail Paint ~ Prototype #808

 Happy New Year everyone!! I hope everyones holiday was wonderful! My family and I had a great Christmas 🙂 Now I am back and have a pile of swatches and other reviews to post! Lets check out this first beauty from Drip Drop Nail Paint. I bought a few prototype bags a while ago for me and for some nail mail ladies!! I kept more than I planned on, which was only 3, but I had to have them. This one is number 808. I think out of the 3 I have this is my favorite. It is a pastel purple with very slight holo dust scattered throughout. This formula isn’t exactly a total crème but has a touch of jellyness to it. I believe I have seen it called a cremelly. I may be crazy but either way I like it 🙂 Because the holo is so fine I had the hardest time capturing it. I did, however, make up for it with stamping!! I received some new plates and wanted to play lol. These swatches are all 3 thin smooth coats with top coat. I used Winstonia stamping plate w101 using China Glaze Seas The Day.

                            I love this combo!! Stay tuned for the other DDNP I have for you 🙂

China Glaze ~ Shell We Dance?

Good afternoon my friends! For the past few months I have doing nail mail swaps with Mildred. (@millnpolish on instagram). She has cheaper access to my favorite main stream brand and I have… Well, depends on the time of swap! Yesterday I received a package from her with 5 of the 6 polishes from the China Glaze Sea Goddess collection. The only one I am missing now is Sand Dolla Make You Holla. I should have it pretty soon 😉 Today I have Shell We Dance? I am such a sucker for textured polish. I just love it so much!!! This one did not disappoint! I used 3 thin coats of this dusty, matte, rosy color. Even though it is matte, it has quite the sparkle and shimmer. In fact it doesn’t even look too matte at all. More an effect of the texture. And for a textured polish goes on very smoothly. I feel that CG has definitely upped their textured game! I did use top coat on my ring finger but I skipped it on the rest so you could get an idea of just how textured this polish is. I cannot wait to swatch and show you the rest 😀 This polish has small metallic silver and rose glitters and a slight shimmer that just make this polish pop! See for your self and let me know what you think!!

Julep ~ Lizanne

Who got their Julep Maven box?!?! Well, hopefully everyone has because it took me a week or so to get to posting this. I am an it girl 🙂 What type of box do you get? This month I was actually going to cancel my box but forget, then it showed up! I am actually super glad it did because I absolutely love the colors this month! I did also get a cotton candy flavored old fashioned candy stick but my 8 year old daughter pulled the wrapper off and shoved it in her mouth before I could even read the label!! So for this post I will have Lizanne. Lizanne is a dark greenish teal color with a green shimmer. I drooled over this in the bottle… wasn’t so happy with the final outcome on the nail. It lost a lot of shimmer even when I applied Glisten & Glow H K Girl fast drying & super shiny clear top coat (which as you shall see in an upcoming post on my experience)!! I even tried to use a matte top coat, as you will see on my pinky, also to no avail. Still, it is a nice color and from what I have seen so far (I don’t own it) it looks a lot like O.P.I’s   Amazon…Amazoff. Just more on the green side. This polish applied OK. It wasn’t finicky but it wasn’t nice either. Dry time was average. I used 2 coats of this crème polish for these pictures. Check them out and let me know what you think in the comments 🙂

Inspired by @rachell_rachell

Hi lovelies ❤ I hope so far everyone is having a wonderful day!! I am in high spirits today and excited to show you my "inspired by" manicure!! On instagram I follow this super talented lady! her ig name is @rachell_rachell. Definitely go give her a follow!! Today she posted these awesome nails that I had to recreate. I will show you hers and then mine. They differ in color but are pretty much the same. For my nails i used 3 coats of Sephora by O.P.I  looks like rain, dear. I topped that with my Glisten & Glow HK girl fast drying and super shiny clear top coat.(A review of that will be coming soon). After that I used nail tape to place in a chevron design. The colors I used for the ombre effect are Rimmel French white tip, Sinful colors sweet tooth, China glaze spontaneous, China glaze coconut kiss, and China glaze VII. Maybe someday I will do videos and tutorials but until then feel free to ask questions in the comments!!! I topped my design with my G&G top coat and I just love it. I hope you all like it as much as I do!!! 🙂
