Grape Set Match & Servin' Up Sparkle!

Happy Friday fellow nail polish lovers! I hope you all have had a great week, and an awesome weekend planned! 

I have had OPI's Grape Set Match/Servin' Up Sparkle Duo since it came out, and FINALLY used it for the first time. What was I waiting for!?!? I'll never know, but better late than never, I suppose! "Grape Set Match" is an amazing purple polish. It's a medium/darkish shade of purple, but has this pink and blue sheen to it that is just glorious. This color is incredible on its own. But, it's partnered with its sister polish, "Servin' Up Sparkle". This is more of a top coat. It is a clear base with small holographic glitter and larger hex holographic glitter throughout. This could obviously top a myriad of colors, but it does look especially nice over "Grape Set Match". OPI won with this duo, that's for sure!

Ozotic 515

Hey guys! Happy Thursday! Almost Friday!! Woo Hoo!! :) Today I want to share with you an amazing blue holographic polish: Ozotic "515". The Ozotic holographic polishes are AAAAMMMMAAAZZZIIINNNGGG!!!! And, the best part is, the application is flawless. No dragging. No bald spots. Just gorgeous, even color in two coats. I used OPI Nail Envy as a base for this and Seche Vite top coat. The holo-ness wasn't dulled at all. Seriously, I want to go back and get all of these holo polishes! They can be purchased from Australia at the Picture Polish website, or even better for us Americans, from Llarowe's site.

 After I wore this for two days, I decided to paint the tips. I used a Love & Beauty polish I picked up from Forever 21 the other day called: "Black/Fuchsia". It's an opaque black polish packed full of fuchsia micro glitter.




Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Another contender for a purple flakey!

Hi guys! First things first. I just got the new iPhone 4s! So far, I love it! There is a blogger app which I am testing out right now. So, this whole post is being done via cell phone. Second, the pics I am using in the post are taken with the iPhone camera. I am curious to see how this camera fares!

So, I recently did another swap with the famous Kati of the Netherlands. I love doing swaps with her, and will have more posts in the future of polishes she sent me! For this post, I want to show you a polish by the brand "Koh". The name of this color is: "Purple Universe!". It's so pretty, and as soon as I saw it I immediately thought "Fowl Play/Merry Midnight" alert!!! It is a little more sheer than the other two, but after about 3-4 coats, it is a pretty good dupe! See for yourselves:

Koh, Merry Midnight, Fowl Play

Ok I am on my computer now. Had to adjust the pic size and add a caption, but other than that, everything was done via the iPhone! I am impressed!

Have a great rest of your weekend, everyone!! :)

Oh My Ozotic!!

Hey guys! I'm sure many of you have seen posts about various Ozotic Pro polishes. I actually posted one a few weeks ago about a polish that my friend Karin had given to me. These polishes are really great!! I was lucky enough to purchase some recently, and I've gotta be honest... these are turning out to be some of my favorite polishes ever! First of the lot is Ozotic Pro 528. This is a multi-chrome glitter polish meant to be layered over a solid color. 
I started with Ibizia from Zoya. This color on its own is awesome!!! This is the first time I have used it, and I seriously love it!! It's a GREAT dark shimmery blue. I love that even though it is so dark, you can still tell it's blue. This polish is pretty much a one coater, although I did two in these pics just to be sure there weren't any weird streaks. A great formula, and another Zoya winner in my book! (When are they not!?)
After that dried, I added Ozotic Pro 528. I love, love, love the effect this polish gives!! It goes from teal, to purple with maybe little bits of red? It is just so awesome, and I'll let the pics do the talking! :)

Zoya Ibizia ..... We're going to Ibizia... Whoa!..Back to the Island... a little Venga Boys, anyone?

Have a good day everybody!

Another Spectra-Franken... A Spranken?

Hiiiiii everyone!!!! Oh my goodness it's been a long time. I feel like I am never home or on the computer anymore! Life in Cali is great, but I am so busy and it's like I am only home to sleep! I am going to fix that though! I feel like I've lost my blogging mojo! I just got a bunch of new polishes though, so it's back! 

I recently threw together another franken. This is a mix of Orly Velvet Rope and Sally Hansen Black Out. I added some coarse grade Spectra Flair pigment to it, and voila! I don't really name my frankens, but maybe I should start? Anyway, I really like this one, and I do like the coarse grade powder. I don't know that I notice that much of a difference from the finer grade pigment, but I can tell the particles are a little bigger. Anyway, here it is! :)
