Star of Bombay

Hey everyone!  Another gorgeous Fall color for you today...I found this beauty at TJ Maxx!
Orly Star of Bombay:

It was pretty difficult for me to photograph the shimmer but I tried my best!  I feel like you can see it better in the bottle than on my nail which is a bummer :(

 Happy Tuesday <3

Liquid Glam Lacquer

Hey everyone!  I'm SO exited to share some fun glitters with you today from Liquid Glam Lacquer's newest collection.

Here we have Fall Foliage, Cool Nights and  Fairy Tale:

First up is Fall Foliage:

This has multi-colored glitter with larger lime green glitters in a milky white base.  My first thought was to layer this but it was pretty opaque after 2 coats as you can see below.  I love the marshmellow-y look of the base.  

Next is Cool Nights: 

I absolutely love this one.  It has big and small holo glitters in a black jelly base, although the smaller glitters seem to lean a little more teal/green.  The holo pieces were also a little difficult to get out but I still fell in love! Here I have one coat over a black base.  I wish I could show you how magical the sparkle really is!

and last, I have Fairy Tale:

 This glitter polish is...just. so. pretty.  It has small iridescent glitters and larger pink star glitters all suspended in a shimmery clear base.  I layered this over 2 coats of OPI Steady As She Rose.

As you can see NONE of the star glitters transferred onto my nail.  I had to do a lot of fishing and once I got one I sort of ruined my nail trying to apply it :(
(This is shown over China Glaze Fade Into Hue and OPI Sparrow Me the Drama)
See my middle finger? I have no idea what happened.

 Overall, I loved each one of these in their own unique way and although I had a hard time getting some of the bigger glitters out of the bottle I still loved  the glitter payout.  Absolutely gorgeous! You can find these and other fun polishes, hand made by Brittany, by visiting Liquid Glam Lacquer here.

Happy Saturday <3

It's NOT black!

Hey everyone!  Today I have another Fall swatch from an older collection from this year.  This is OPI Live and Let Die:

When I wore this my husband said, "oh, so you're wearing black today".  I said, "it's NOT black it's tealish-green with glitter!" Men will never understand...

Happy Wednesday <3

Day 3 - Yellow

Hey everyone!  Today I have day 3 of the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge to show you.  I started with 3 coats of Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow:

and then since I love yellow and gray together so much I decided to add some simple gray accents.  It didn't turn out the way I planned but it's okay.  The gray is Sally Hansen Wet Cement.

Happy Tuesday <3

Day 2 - Orange

Hey everyone! I finally got around to doing Day to of the 31 Day this rate it's going to take me 31 weeks!  Anyway, day 2 is orange so what better than little baby oranges on my tips!
As you can tell, I started to fall asleep by the time I got to my pinky.  I used Zoya Arizona and a white striper.


Happy Sunday <3

Ms. Can't Be Wrong

Hey everyone!  Although I'm really not ready for Fall yet I thought I'd try a "Fall" color for today's mani.  Here is Sephora by OPI Ms. Can't Be Wrong:

This bottle totally tricked me!  There's some blueish/purple glitter in the bottle that did not transfer onto the nail at all.  It's still a pretty and classic Fall color though! 

Happy Friday <3

The 31 Day Challenge 2013

Hey everyone   The time has come again where The 31 Day Challenge has been floating around in the nail community.  This was originally created by the ever so talented Chalkboard Nails a few years ago.  I've wanted many times to join in on the fun, and as much as I love painting my nails, I just couldn't see myself carving out time for nail art every day.  Then I came across Chalkboard Nails 2011 post when she decided to try this challenge for the first time.  I think she said it ended up taking her about 3 months to complete - that was enough to encourage me to do this challenge at my own pace.  Sooooo, I will be attempting this 31 Day Challenge!  I'm excited to start as it will force me to be creative and work on my nail skills.  I will still continue to post other swatches and/or reviews as usual :)
Who wants to join me (at their own pace)??

Happy Monday <3
