Russian Navy..Suede!

Hi guys! Quick post! - I finally tried one of the suede polishes I have. Behold OPI "Russian Navy Suede". These polishes are really neat - you apply them like normal polish, and they dry to a suede texture like finish. They are meant to be worn without a top coat. These dry REALLY fast, so you have to work fast as you apply them. The first coat may be a little bit streaky, but the second one evens it out pretty fast. Pictures is two coats and no top coat. This polish totally reminds me of dark denim!



Have a good day everyone!

Under My Trench Coat

Happy Monday! Today I wanted to show you guys a new Sephora by OPI polish I picked up called "Under My Trench Coat". It's a shimmery tan/beige/nude color with microscopic gold glitter throughout. I'm not a huge fan of nude polishes, but this one really caught my eye, and I really like it! The formula on it was great, and this is two coats:


Sorry my fingers look so slimy, I had just put on some cuticle oil!

Purple-Holo-Ombre?!

Hey there! I was organizing my polishes the other day, and found myself kind of staring at my purple, holographic polishes. Sometimes I feel bad about picking one over the other (I don't want any of them to feel left out!!!), so I decided to try an ombre mani. I don't think the shades were quite right for this, but I went with it anyway. And, I really liked it! I mean, you can't really go wrong with various purple holos! Here are the polishes I used:
Hits "Hestia", OPI "DS Original", Nubar "Treasure", Glitter Gal "Dark Purple 3D/Holo", Hits "Dionisio"

Thumb: Hits "Dionisio"
Pointer: Glitter Gal "Dark Purple 3D/Holo"
Middle: Nubar "Treasure"
Ring: OPI "DS Original"
Pinky: Hits "Hestia"





Hits "Dionisio"

Glitter Gal "Dark Purple 3D/Holo"

Nubar "Treasure"

OPI "DS Original"

Hits "Hestia"

Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did! Have a great day!

Wisteria vs Gothic Lolita

Hi everyone! Just a quick comparison post! A reader of mine commented on my Picture Polish, "Wisteria", post saying she thought it looked similar to the new China Glaze Electropop color, "Gothic Lolita". I actually just picked up the "Electropop Lights" collection, so here they are together! As you can see, they are actually not that similar. Wisteria is more blue based, while Gothic Lolita is more red. Also, Wisteria is a pure creme polish, while Gothic Lolita has a pink, shimmery sheen to it. So there you have it! Both beautiful polishes, but different enough to own both :)

Thanks for the great question, Polish lover! :)

Zoya Tallulah

Hi guys! Zoya had a recent promotion where you could get two polishes for free, and just pay shipping. I decided on Tallulah and Kissy. I decided to try Tallulah first, and I can honestly say this is now one of my top 5 blues. This polish is SO pretty. It's a shimmery medium-bright blue, and in the bottle you can see a purple flash. It barely translates to the nail, but it doesn't really matter.... this polish is just perfect! Two easy coats gives full coverage and I topped it with my beloved Seche Vite. 





Thanks for stopping by!

Happy New Year!

Hi everybody! Happy New Year! It's my first post of 2012. It has been such a long time!!!! I kept meaning to update and then ended up doing something else instead (like going to sleep!) and time just flew by! But I am back and am dedicated to posting a lot more often! Things have been crazy here in CA. I love living here, but I still don't feel like I really do. If that makes any sense. Still adjusting I suppose!! Anyway, let's look at some nail pics! 

When Cult Nails had their Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale (I forget when it exactly was) I immediately ordered a bottle of Clairvoyant. I know there has already been a ton of swatches of it, but it's so gorgeous! I heard that it may not be available anymore, so that's sad :( If that is the case, I'm glad I got it when I did! Since it is a sheer polish on its own, I layered it over Orly, "Le Chateau". It's a really deep dark green jelly. Here it is on its own!


And here is "Clairvoyant" layered over top!





Isn't it pretty?! It's like stained glass on your nails! I love putting Clairvoyant on top of other polishes!!
Thanks for reading and I will be talking to you all really soon! :)
