Matte Orange Swirl/Circles

 Today I did my friends nails and this is what I came up with :)

You can see it's matte-ness :)

I really like this konadicure, I think it's cute :) I used my new image plate by the way, I also used my new matte topcoat, I love it very much. Well, that's pretty much it for today, thank you so much for stopping by(:

Some New Goodies :)

 As you know, yesterday was Black Friday, so of course, I went shopping. I got a couple of nail related products and I decided to show them to you :) Probably the product I am most excited about, is my matte topcoat by Hard Candy!! I also got a big bottle of Konad Black Pearl Special Polish (It was on sale, $5) and a new image plate (that was on sale too, $7)

Image Plate M65 :)

I'll have a review on the topcoat as soon as I can :) Thanks for stopping by :)

Frosbite+Sparkle Topcoat

 Today I decided to layer my sparkle topcoat by Fingerpaints over Frostbite:

ewwww, nasty fingers

nastier fingers, why do they look like this?!

Ignore my finger discoloration lol, I don't know why they look that :/

Can't decide if I like it or not, hmmm....... What do you think??

China Glaze Frostbite

 Frostbite is about a shade darker in person
 Frostbite is a about a shade darker in person

Frostbite is pure blue gorgeous-ness. It's a darker blue, but it is still so vibrant! It almost looks like your nails are glowing(: Personally, I really like this polish. The formula was ok.... a little runny, but nothing to bad, application was average and dry time was fast. Frostbite doesn't dry that shiny so (if you like shiny nails) be sure to add a topcoat. This is two coats(:

Sinful Colors: Let's Talk

Here are some swatch pictures of a polish that was a pain in the butt to photograph. I have some new photos and some old ones.



This was taken inside

Let's Talk is this amazingly gorgeous dark purple. It's kind of shimmery so that adds to it's beauty. If you look really close, you can almost see some fuchsia and blue (extremely tiny) shimmer/glitter. The formula on this was really nice and application was great. Dry time was average. My only caution to this polish, is that if you decide to stamp it, don't apply a topcoat after wards or else it will mutate the color of your stamp. Has this happened to any of you??

Do you wear purple often?? If so, what's your go to purple??

China Glaze For Audrey

Oh.My.Gosh, this is such a pretty blue, I can't stop looking at it!! For Audrey is a gorgeous Tiffany Blue (Is that supposed to be capitalized??) The formula was a 'lil on the thick side, so ya, I got away with one coat :) (I usually don't like thick polishes, but this one was ok... like... not SUPER thick... but just a 'lil thick... if that makes sense) The drying time just a little below regular (But that is probably because I only did 1 coat lol). Overall, this polish is absolutely stunning, and if you don't own it, you HAVE to go and get it, you won't regret :)

Swatch: Hello Kitty Red

 Hey everybody!! So today I have a swatch of a red Hello Kittty polish:

When I tried this, I was really surprised that it dried matte!! What's really weird though is that it has a bumpy texture (do mattes usually have that??)... it looks like... a "frosted" plastic... for example, the bottom of a plastic container is "frosty" and the texture is kind of bumpy?? Well, ya, that is what this polish looks like. Anyways, I usually don't wear red just because I don't like the way it looks on me, so I was planning to see if it worked for stamping, just because it was opaque in 1 coat (but I still used 2 lol) I thought it would work for Konad stamping. 

Anyways, that's it for today, thank you so much for stopping bye :)

Hello Kitty Nail Polish and Water Decals :)

 Hey everybody!! So I won a giveaway that was hosted by Kganir :) Now, I won sometime last month, but I haven't checked the mail in a long time so just now I got the package. Inside were these items:

 Super Cute Bottle :)

 These ones not so much but thats ok because I usually have full nail designs on,

Everything :)

China Glaze Frostbite and M74

Hey everybody!! So today I did my friends nails using China Glaze's Frostbite :) I love the color, it is amazing, and I want to thank Cristina from Let Them Have Polish for swatching it, when I saw the swatch, I knew I had to have it :) Anyway, on to the photos:

Heres a close up of the design :)

Sorry about the ring finger, I thought the mani would look cool with a glitter topcoat so I tried it on that finger and I applied it a 'lil to thick :( So ya, that is why it looks all weird. Overall, I liked the way this mani turned out, and again, I am loving this color. Well, that's it for today, thanks for stopping by :)

  • Base Color: China Glaze Frostbite
  • Konad Color: White SP
  • IP: M74
  • Finger Paints Sparkle Topcoat was used on the ring finger and thumb

Orly: Meet Me Under The Mistletoe

 Hey everybody!! So today I have some pictures of Orly's Meet Me Under the Mistletoe:

 So this was my very first polish by Orly, and I have to say that I love this color!! It's a dark green with blue/blue-ish teal shimmers. It's absolutely stunning. The formula was really good I thought, a little runny, but good. The drying time was really fast, so that made me really happy, this is 2 coats :)

In other news, I now have pictures of the polishes I got from Sally's on my Nail Polish Collection tab, you can check them out if you want :)

Sinful Colors: Call You Later

Hey everybody!! So today I have a swatch of Call You Later by Sinful Colors :)

Look at all that awesome green glitter :) Ok, to start things off I want to say that this is 4 thin coats. I also want to say that each coat dried really fast :D Well, not sure what else to say..... Overall, I really like this polish, the dry time is quick, a lot of coats, but at least the dry time is fast right?? I also really like the color, reminds me of Christmas :) Anyway, that's pretty much it for today, thank you so much for stopping by :)

P.S. Sorry about the awful swatch pic, it was my first time using a glitter polish.... and it was hard evening the glitter out and stuff....
