Essie Trophy Wife

Monday, April 24, 2017

Happy Monday Blues! I'm almost caught up with my schedule of posts for the blog which makes me happy. The weather has been a lot better during my days off from work so I was able to take some decent pictures for my blog posts. I have a polish swatch for today so let's see the color of it then.

Essie Trophy Wife is a deep teal pearl. The finish on this polish reminds me a bit of a metallic polish even though its said to have a pearl finish to it. The formula and application on this polish was okay for me. The first application I did was a little streaky but the second coat did smooth everything out. I did notice that this color does leave some brushstrokes on the nails but its not too noticeable in real life unless you look really closely. This is two coats.

I don't wear this color a lot but I still think its really nice. Its definitely a color that stands out when you have it on the nails too. What do you think?

Icing Glitter & Go

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Hi everyone! I'm going to be sharing a polish swatch today. I'm happy that I've been doing a lot more swatching since it makes me try out polishes that I haven't worn at all at least once on my nails. I haven't bought any new nail polish in a pretty long time so these posts shows me what I have in my collection too. Anyways, let's see the polish.

Icing Glitter & Go is a rosy pink micro glitter in a clear base. I'm not a huge fan of most micro glitter polishes so this one was just an okay polish for me. The formula was more clear base heavy compared to glitter so if you want a more full coverage look, I recommend sponging the glitter on. This is two coats over Misa Green With Envy with top coat.

Even though I didn't particularly love this polish, I'm sure this glitter would be appealing to other people out there. I do however like the shade of rosy pink the micro glitter is especially layered over the green. What do you think?

Happy Monday Blues! I hope everyone had a nice Easter over the weekend. My family had a last minute dinner planned so it was nice catching up with them. Let's see what polish I'm sharing today then.

Nicole by OPI Such A Go-Glitter has a mix of a vibrant blue and silver holographic glitters in a clear base. I do tend to not like micro glitter polishes all that much but for this one I don't mind it. It is a little clear base heavy so if your looking for full coverage, I recommend sponging on the glitter. However, if your looking for a sparse glitter topper, then this one is it. I found the formula pretty good so I didn't have to use the dabbing method all that much to get an even amount of glitter on the nails. This is one coat over Sephora by OPI Havana Dreams with top coat.

Even though this glitter isn't a favorite of mine, it was still a pretty nice polish The addition of those silver holographic glitters was a nice touch with the vibrant blue glitters. Overall, a nice glitter polish that's great for layering over any base polish. What do you think?

Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by a Movie

Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is inspired by a movie. I don't really watch much movies but since the Beauty and the Beast movie recently came out, I thought I would create a manicure inspired by that.

Beauty and the Beast Inspired Nail Art

I used American Apparel Sunshine State on my ring and middle nail. I stamped with American Apparel Downtown LA with stamping plate BM-H16 from Bundle Monster. For the rest of the nails, I used China Glaze Champagne Bubbles. Finished with KBShimmer Clearly On Top Quick Dry Top Coat.

I went pretty simple with the design for the theme. I mainly went with a yellow and red color scheme and stamped on a rose design since a rose plays a pretty important part in the story. What do you think?

Happy Monday Blues! I was able to get some blogging done on my days off from work but I'm still a little behind on where I want to be still. Hopefully, I can catch up on how far along to schedule my posts for by these next few weeks. Anyways, let's see which blue polish I'm sharing today.

Sephora by OPI Havana Dreams is a light pastel baby blue creme. This shade of blue is perfect to wear during the Spring time especially for Easter. Even though I really like the color, the formula left a lot to be desired. I found the formula thin and watery so it made application pretty difficult. I had to be extra careful when applying the color to prevent flooding on my cuticles. I also had to apply each coat pretty thickly to get an even coverage on the nails. This is three coats.

This was another blue shade I liked but sadly, the thin formula disappointed me. I don't wear this polish all that often since I have to be extra careful when applying the color too. What do you think?
