It is a base of two coats of OPI Alpine Snow topped with Seche Vite and allowed to dry then stamped with the leaves image from Bundle Monster plate #04 with China Glaze Westside Warrior, City Siren, Papaya Punch and Color Club Almost Famous. I put drops of different colours on each leaf image then scraped to make multicoloured Autumn leaves then stamped them. I topped the stamping with a coat of China Glaze Golden Enchantment and then Seche Vite.

Orly Flash Glam FX: Spazmatic

We've completely been spoiled by glitter this past year right? Glitterbombs are every where. Long gone are the days of there only being glitter polishes you had to layer 5+ coats to get any kind of coverage. There are also amazing glitter top coats that are filled with varying colors and sizes of glitter. There are a lot of great choices when it comes to glitter. I thought Orly's Flash Glam FX polishes would fit right into this, but overall I'm pretty disappointed. This is one I picked up, that I feel rather "meh" about.

Spazmatic over Zoya Phoebe

Spazmatic is a mixture of medium electric blue hex glitters and light blue shimmer.

I think part of the problem is my choice of color to layer this over. Zoya Phoebe is a shimmery polish already, so the shimmer in the Orly does get lost. My fault there. Still, the glitter itself in this...-yawn-. This was two coats, and I felt like I was fishing for the glitter to come out and fighting for it to stay on my nail. It's one of those times where I look at other blogger posts, and question if perhaps I got a bad bottle? A lot of the glitter in the bottle if you can see in the pic, looks as if it has sunk to the bottom.

 I was hoping this glitter would be denser, not a glitter bomb, but certainly not this sparse. While some other bloggers manage to get more glitter on their nail than me, the glitter is still very sparse. This just has too many negative things against it where I really cannot recommend it. Plus, you're paying more for these special Orly polishes. While, you may not have the same color options I'd stick to Milani Jewel FX or Jordana Specialty Glitters for your glitter fix when looking for glittery top coats. Honestly, as non-professional as this sounds, this glitter flat out sucks.

Happy Friday!

Jade Vermelho Surreal

I have a strange relationship with holos. I love them. I need them. I "ooo" and "ahh" over them, but I hardly ever wear them. I know strange right? I think it's because good holos have become so hard to find in recent years that I want don't want to use them up. That's even funnier. I've never used up an entire bottle of polish. We nails polish addicts are certifiable! Thankfully, I am hoping with the 2013 release of those China Glaze holographic polishes, good holos will be back on the market. In the meantime, I'll be using my holos sparingly including this awesome Jade red holo.

Jade Vermelho Surreal

Vermelho Surreal is a deep red linear holo.

This is an awesome red holo. I've come across some other red holos, namely SH Golden Tourmaline and OPI DS Ruby, and this Jade red holo trumps this both as far as color. My experience with red holos is they tend to have some pink or lighter tones to them. This is definitely different.  I've never seen such a rich red holographic. It's gorgeous!

I got this polish on Ninja Polish. It's currently out of stock, but you can sign up to be emailed when it is back in stock.

Happy Wednesday!

China Glaze VII

China Glaze VII was one of the first China Glaze polishes I purchased. It has received a lot of love, despite how it looks in the photo below. I've used about half of this polish up. This is definitely one of my go-to colors for fall. It never fails me!


VII is a deep eggplant creme.

I know this is not an original color. I'm sure there tons of colors just like this, but I'm loyal to it. It's been in my collection for almost 4 years, and whenever I see a color like this I always think "No need, I have VII!". It's a great color for fall. I also think this just a great classic nail polish color. I think everyone could use a color like this in their stash.

Happy Monday!

Manicure Description: I did a sponge gradient using Sinful Colors 24/7 and Orly Decades of Dysfunction then I freehanded the pink heart with 24/7.
Favorite Polishes: Julep Pippa, Color Club Worth the Risque, OPI Jade is the New Black, Zoya Valerie, Zoya Shelby and Zoya Wednesday.

Name: Essie Rae

Manicure Description: This is Butter London "No More Waity Katie" over Zoya "Kelly". This polish was really popular when it was released in 2011 and I grabbed it as soon as it hit stores. I wasn't very impressed the first time I put it on; however, I have learned to work with it and now I LOVE it. In order to appreciate this polish, you have to view it as more of a speckle rather than a sparkle. The pieces of glitter blend in with the grayish purple base...I would say this is a jelly sandwich all in one pretty bottle. I have collected a bunch of Butter London nail polishes and have been pleasantly surprised by the formula and unique shade selection. Favorite Polishes: OPI Tickle My France-y & Pedal Faster Suzi, Butter London Wallis, Orly Nite Owl, and am appreciating some new Indie polish lines such as KBShimmer and Whimsical Ideas by Pam.

Spontaneous Saturday: Fall Faves Bottle Spam

We've made it to fall! I've been seeing some fall favorite polishes posts around, so I decided to take bottle spam form!

 I know it's been awhile since I did a bottle spam. I couldn't narrow down my fall favorites to just a few, so bottle spam seemed the best bet. I wanted to go with colors you could easily purchase now, either you could walk into a store and get it or find it on an e-tailer or brand website without any hassle. These are colors that have either been my tried and true fall favorites or new fall colors I've been reaching for!

a-england Perceval, NOPI Sealed with a Kris, Zoya Bliar, and OPI German-icure

Zoya Gloria, Zoya Tiffany, China Glaze Life Preserver, and Orly Space Cadet

OPI Designer De Better, Sally Hansen Gilded Lily, OPI Warm & Fozzie, and Zoya Angelina

Zoya Evvie, Zoya Yara, a-england Dragon, and Cult Nails Living Water

Sinful Colors Rainstorm, Zoya Kotori, China Glaze First Mate, Sally Hansen Co-bolt Blue, and Cult Nails Time Traveler

a-england Princess Tears, Revlon Perplex (aka Naughty), Cult Nails Spontaneous, and Essie No More Film

China Glaze VII, Zoya Roxy, Milani Black Cherry, OPI Every Month is Oktoberfest, and Orly Fowl Play

Confetti Moonstruck, Zoya Kelly, Milani Silver Dazzle, and OPI Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous

These are my picks! I know there maybe a few in here you maybe confused about. There are some in here that are even from spring collections! The reason I picked some of these is because they have a muted or subded quality that I think makes me appropriate for fall too :).

What are some of your fall favorite polishes?

Happy Saturday!

American Apparel Sheer: Redondo Beach

"Do you remember the 21st night of September?, love was changing the mind of pretenders, while chasing the clouds away....Ba de yaaaa say do remember Ba de yaaaa dancing in September Ba de yaaa never was a cloudy day" --That  Earth, Wind, & Fire song has been in my head since the beginning of September, but since it's the 21st it makes more sense to sing it now!

I think blue has been my color of the year. I noticed while going through my folder of swatches a huge percentage of them are blues. If  you did not know, when I first started blogging I avoided blues. I actually thought blues did not look good me. It's all about finding the right blues! It turned out that blue has become probably my favorite color of nail polish. Times have changed. I was really curious about the American Apparel Sheer polishes when I first heard about them, so when I spotted them I picked up this pretty blue!

Redondo Beach
Redondo Beach is a sky blue jelly.

I used 3 coats here, and I'm calling this a jelly. While, it is sheerer when applied with one coat, it's not my idea of a sheer. When I think of sheers I think of those pinky-nudes that take 5 coats to build and are a pain in the acetone to get opaque. This has more coverage than a sheer, and builds up way easier. In Steph's world this a jelly. This was easy to apply and built up so nicely. I love the color. I don't have any complaints. I think this would great to do jelly sandwiches too if you use less coats.

Happy Friday!

China Glaze Prismatic Collection

*Hey everyone! I have a guest post over at iHeartPrettyPolish today. Be sure to check it out and follow Essie's blog. She's a great blogger and very sweet too! 

I know, the China Glaze Prismatic collection was out like half a year ago. I've had this collection swatched and ready to blog about for ages. What held me back? I had no idea how to describe these colors. I usually like to try to give my own descriptions of colors in my blog unless it's items I get for review. These just stumped me though because they are so complex, and I was too lazy to try to come up with something on my own. So, these swatches have just sat around for months. Guilty. I finally just sucked up my pride, and will use the official descriptions of these polishes by China Glaze. These can't sit around forever, and I'm still lazy to come up with something on my own. :P

Full Spectrum

Full Spectrum- Baby pink bursts into holographic magenta to party with silver, gold, blue, pink and green particles.

Liquid Crystal

Liquid Crystal- Bright blue holographic with purple tint dusted with silver, gold, green, pink and orange.

Optical Illusion

Optical Illusion- Aqua green glimmers with a hint of purple filled with pink, yellow, silver, orange and green 


Polarized- Silver metallic sheen sprinkled with yellow, pink, orange and green glitters.


Prism- Grape purple holographic gleams with pink shimmer and glitters with pieces of pink, blue, green, orange, silver and gold.


Ray-Diant- Greenish-gold shimmer filled with specks of silver, pink, green, orange and blue.

-sigh- I don't think China Glaze found describing these polishes easy either. Their descriptions are somewhat nonsensical and confusing.

Hmm, basically these are some really complex glitters. They have these cool duo-chromey sheens to them, they are super metallic, blingy, and have random multi-color glitter throughout. Usually, when I take a lifetime to review a collection it's because I don't like it, and can't figure out what to say about it. This is not the case for the Prismatic collection. I bought the whole collection! I really love these, they just happen to absolutely stump me because they are just that complicated. I've never had so much trouble describing polish before. That being said, these are entirely unique. I like these. I would actually recommend that a polish addict at least pick up one or two of these for their collection.

Thankfully, these have not disappeared into oblivion where you cannot get them any more despite my long delay in posting them. You can purchase these on Trans Design, Victoria Nail Supply, and Head2Toe Beauty

Rainbow Honey: Koi Pond

I love koi ponds and koi don't you? I remember we used to go to this outdoor restaurant when I was little that had a koi pond. The owner of the restaurant always gave me fish food, and while my parents were eating, and I was bored out of my mind I went and fed the koi.  Like most kids I loved all animals, so watching the fish was always fun and peaceful for me. Those were some good memories. I love when I can attach good memories to nail polish, and that's what Rainbow Honey's Koi Pond did for me.

Koi Pond over Nicole by OPI Khole Had a Little Lam Lam

Koi Pond is a dense mixture of varying sized black, orange, blue, green, silver, and aqua glitter in a clear base.

This is a great glitter. I absolutely love the idea behind it. The colors match perfectly to a koi pond. I love when indie polish makers take a concept, deconstruct it, and turn it into not only an amazing polish, but one that totally represents their idea. That is some creativity there. This glitter applies great. This was only one coat. Yes, one coat! That's a strong glitter there, and on top of that it was easy to apply. I definitely recommend this one for the glitter fans out there. I also recommend Rainbow Honey! I've loved all the polishes I've purchased from her.

Happy Wednesday!

Talk it Out Tuesday: The Blogger "Pet Peeve" Post

I came across a post in a nail polish FB group recently that got a very big reaction. In this post someone was asking what peoples blogger pet peeves were.

This is not my first encounter with posts such as this. I've seen a lot of similar posts and discussion on this on FB groups, Twitter, and even a blog post in my 2+ years of blogging.  A majority of the time I've seen posts like this and comments about this it causes hurt feelings, insecurities, and incites doubt into bloggers.

Some of the pet peeves included things like bad lighting, click to read more things, busy backgrounds, blurry photos, press release posts, and clean up issues. These are totally understandable, and I can agree. These were not the posts that bothered me. The responses that bothered me were the ones that included words like grungy, jacked up, scary, and disgusting to describe some people's nails, cuticles, or paint jobs on their blog that bothered me. Sure, it's an open forum, and everyone is entitled to so what they will, but it struck a chord with me. 

What struck a deeper cord was when someone responded to the thread saying they were scared to start a blog now based on these comments. That really hurt me. That's when I said something. This is a hot button issue for me because of my own experiences and with experiences other bloggers have shared with me over comments like this. I don't want any potential or new blogger feel inferior because of mean posts by a bunch of people who would rather bring people down than build people up. Am I just overly sensitive to this? Probably, but I care about how posts like this affect others and the blogging community. There are 1,700+ people in that group, and I'm sure there were quite a few people who this post negatively impacted. It's one thing to say I don't like blurry photos or bad lighting, it's another thing to say someone's nails scare and disgust you on their blog in public forum.

Almost every blogger has had not some less than stellar paint jobs, cuticles, and nails some point in their blogging life. When that stuff is attached with such negative words like I mentioned above it is hurtful, not constructive, and outright mean spirited. What I'm sure may have not been recognized is many bloggers work very hard on their blogs. They have a lot of heart and dedication, but sometimes they don't have every perfect element, and even if you don't name names to call peoples work scary, grungy, jacked up, disgusting,and scary is just mean. There are less offensive ways to describe discontent. 

Sadly, I was in the minority in this discussion. Most people found no problems with the post and found it constructive. Their defense was no one named names. Still, that doesn't fly with me. I honestly think people found me and some others who disagreed to be as someone even said "holier than thou". I was not trying to be holier than thou. I just genuinely care about peoples feelings. I'm good at keeping my mouth shut, but when someone says they're afraid to blog because of peoples nasty comments I will always stand up for that. I never want someone's desire or passion for blogging to be stifled. 

All I can say is it is the internet, and people can say whatever they want. I shouldn't expect any different, but I'm not going to keep my mouth shut when I feel something is just wrong. I'm not trying to be superman. I'm trying to just do what I feel is kind and caring to others.

Zoya Song-- I think I'm a blue polish snob

I ordered Zoya Song with Zoya's last promo. In most cases people would say this color is a gorgeous shimmery blue. I can even see where they are coming from, but I really dislike this color. Blue has quickly become one of my favorite nail polish colors. I have a lot of blue, but this blue does not cut it for me at all.


Song is a medium bright blue with a silvery-blue glass flecky sparkle.

Great polish. Great application. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. If you want a medium sparkly blue, I have no reason to tell you not to get this. I just don't care for this shade of blue. I'm a cobalt and navy blue type of girl. This blue isn't rich enough or deep enough for me. Mediums blues are just not my thing.  It also doesn't seem very original at all. I think this probably maybe not dupey, but similar to China Glaze Blue Year's Eve and Sinful Colors Ciao Bella. I actually think those two colors maybe even better than this one. I look at it, and I want to like it, but I can name at least 10 other blue polishes off the top of my head that I'd rather wear than this. I'm so mean. I'm sorry :(.  I've definitely become a blue polish snob! In this case, this will be heading to the swap box.

Have you become a polish snob when it comes to some of your favorite polish colors?

(click photo to enlarge for description)

Name: Nathalie Roy
Location: Canada
Manicure Description: This is a sponged gradient mani. I've used Sinful Colors in Happy Ending ( light green) and Revlon Matte Suede in Emerald City. I then sponged a bit of Blue Glitter from Barelements. Then I top-coated it with Essie Matte About You so to not blind anyone since it was so bright!
Favorite Polishes: OPI (all of them) and the Barelements polishes for which I've never paid more than 2.99$!

Name: Abinaya
Location: India
Manicure Description  This is quite an old design , but it's my favourite :) For this design, I painted all my nails white, then did semi circles in the different colours of the birds. I then did the detailing with a doting tool and a thin brush. For the pig, i mixed a darker green and yellow to get the required shade and did the same. Finally I finished it off with a nice top coat.
Favorite Polishes: I dont actually have any favourite brands, I mainly focus on the colours. I love any purple nailpolish!

Zoya Angelina

Brown is definitely one of the least represented colors in my nail polish stash. I've never been much of a brown fan, but for some reason I was really craving a great brown . When Zoya was having their recent promo I picked up this brown, and I'm happy that I did.


Angelina is a blackened rich chocolate brown creme.

I will admit that in some lighting this will look black, but it has a softer touch than a true black. Outdoors or in brighter lighting you can really see the chocolate tones. I really love this polish. I find fall to have some of the most predictable and repeated colors of any season as far as nail polish. I have tons of muted and deep purples, reds, and blues. Brown...not so much. I think this is a nice variation from those typical colors, and a nice transition from a standard black creme. This is also really glossy. This is not a flat or blah brown. The shine and the richness of the color give it depth. It's a very sophisticated color. I approve!

Happy Friday!

I need your help!

Hey guys, off topic post for today.

I've been really down in the dumps lately with stress and anxiety. I really want to find a creative outlet where I can turn some of this negative energy into something positive and fulfilling. Nail polish is always awesome, but I want something different.

I've always loved art/crafty projects, but I'm not really proficient in anything. Do any of you have an creative hobbies that you find are easy to pick up, and don't require a lot of money to get started on? Please let me know in the comments!

Thank you!

KBShimmer Bejeweled

If you've been following this blog for awhile you know my idea color combinations. I love any shade of blue or blue-green paired with a gold or a copper. The colors together are perfection to me. My Christmas tree last year was all decked out in aqua and gold.  Sadly, I've found this combination of colors not have a strong presence in nail polish. You are more likely to find blues or blue-greens paired with silver shimmers or glitters. Needless to say, whenever I find these colors in that combination in a nail polish it's an instant need for me. That's why I picked up KBShimmer Bejeweled.

Bejeweled over OPI Catch Me In Your Net

Bejewled is a mixture of varying sized purple, blue, teal, and copper glitters in a clear base.

Gorgeous glitter! I don't need to mention the colors. You know I love those colors together. It's beautiful combination. This glitter was also easy to work with, and applied nicely. This is one of those I don't need to get too wordy on. It's just flat out awesome, and I love it.

I got Bejeweled on KBShimmer's website for $8.50.

Happy Wednesday!

Talk it Out Tuesday: Blogs of Yesteryear

This is less of a talk it out and more of a share it out Tuesday?

 I was thinking yesterday about all the blogs I followed before I became a blogger that now have been abandoned :(. I was reading blogs a year and half before I started blogging myself. Many of the blogs I used to follow loyally have been deserted. It's kind of a bummer, but I understand peoples lives change. It is nostalgic to go back and look at these blogs even though they are not current. Some of these get updated every so often, but not at the capacity they used to be. They are great resources still. You can see swatches of a lot of older collections and some have great tips of frankening or other nail related things! They're still relevant and valuable in my opinion.

These were some of those blogs I had in mind. 

Sadly, quite of a few of the blogs I used to follow no longer exist.

You know what's cool though? When a blogger from a few years ago, who stopped blogging comes back to the blogging scene. This is what happened with The Polish Addict. Her blog was one of the first I followed along with Scrangie, Vampy Varnish, All Lacquered Up, and The Nailphile. It's nice to see her back!

Do you remember any of these bloggers? What were some of your favorite blogs that fit the subject of today's post? 

Happy Tuesday!

OPI German-icure

I admit it. I talked a lot of trash about the OPI Germany collection. I though it was totally uninspired, predictable, and uneventful. On one hand, I felt somewhat right. I passed over most of the collection without a second glance, but there were 2 that stood out one other (which I'll show you at a later date), and German-icure which I have for you today.. After I saw these two, I felt a little pang in my heart for being so cruel towards the Germany collection. Those 2 polishes made up for all the others.


German-icure is a deep rich maroon shimmer.

This polish is magical. The shimmer in it is really something else. The shimmer is very glowy. I love how vibrant the color is in the center of the nail and how it starts to fade darker into the edges of the nail. There is absolutely nothing ordinary about this polish at all. It is truly luxurious. I have a lot of red polishes, but none that glow or shimmer quite like this at all. Gorgeous. You need this one.

Happy Monday!

Reader Manis of the Week:

Name: Alexis
Manicure Description: Pastel Galaxy - A lavender-ish franken as the base and I sponged on LVX - Callais and Primrose, Julep - Robin, Wet n' Wild - French White Creme, a coral franken, and WingDustCollections - Jazzberry Pie. I tore up pieces (small and medium!) of a makeup sponge and using dipped them in colors (all except my base color and Jazzberry Pie) in whatever order I think looked best; added some in some spots and less in others. After that I used a tiny dotting tool to place 'stars' in just certain areas, I even used a striper dipped in white to make larger stars by creating and 'x'. After that I sponged on some Jazzberry Pie in certain areas for the sparkly holo bits. Finally I added two coats of top coat!
Favorite Polishes: Hmmm, this may be one of the hardest questions I've ever had to answer! I love holos, they're my weakness! I also love any polishes from WingDustCollections, Stephanie is such a talented polish maker!
