China Glaze - Glitter All The Way

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Today I have some old swatches that I forgot about to share with you! I love Christmas polish collections so much! If you're a red, green, blue, or glitter I WILL snatch you up! There were so many great polishes in China Glaze's 2012 Holiday Joy collection, and today I have Glitter All The Way to share with you! This is less of a holiday polish to me, and more of a Mardi Gras polish for SURE! I'm obsessed with New Orleans, well Louisiana in general, and Mardi Gras has always fascinated me! It's a party it a bottle!

Glitter all the way is clear based with purple, green, red, and gold various sized glitters swimming within. The result is a bling-y manicure indeed! This two.....maybe three?... coats over a pink polish and I love the way it looks! I can't wait to see what China Glaze has in store for us this holiday season!

Enjoy your Sunday!

Digital Nails - Oh, Fionna!

Hello there!

My interest in indie polish has resparked recently when my fiance and I started watching Adventure Time and I found an Adventure Time collection from Digital Nails! First up I have Oh, Fionna to share - a polish based off the character Fionna the human. The glitter was a tricky one, I had to flip the bottle upside down let it set for a while, then shaking the bottle up a few times. Kind of a pain, but the outcome was worth it! The nude base has such a pretty iridescent shimmer that I loved with my skin tone! Mixed within is irregular shaped white glitter (some squares! YAY!), yellow hex glitter, and turquoise round glitter. This is three thin coats. I have to note how this polish wears like iron! I wore it for four days with very minimal tip wear or chips.

Have a great day, all!

Orly - Ancient Jade

Good Morning! 

Don't know why I've been reaching for only new(er) polishes lately. I barely have time to paint my nails let alone go digging through my Helmers. I have been snagging the first one to catch my attention. I was in the mood for a crisp creme the other day, and a mint green type polish really had my attention. Ancient Jade is from Orly's Spring 2011 Precious Collection. I think I swatched this back when I very first got into polish and haven't touched it since. I think I want a more minty green (lighter) in my stash so I'll have to keep my eyes open for one this Spring. This is two coats.

Have a great day, lovlies!

Oh hey there!

Yea, yea, yea. It's been almost three months. I know. Life's gotten into the way. Planning a wedding, getting a new job and promotion, having more of a social life, having other new hobbies/passions (Warhammer 40k, wax blogging) that polish blogging just took a back seat. I stopped buying for a while, I even stopped painting my nails for over a month and a half. The passion's coming back to me though! I've been buying polish like crazy again (poor wallet) and I might even be up to swatching if I ever get the time! For now I have a quick swatch to share that I never uploaded, China Glaze's Running In Circles from their Cirque Du Soleil collection. Who can go wrong with a great green glitter this bright?! I hope this isn't my last post for another three months, I'll be back soon! ;)

Have a great rest of your Sunday!
