Holy gorgeous glitter batman!!

Hey guys! Here today with a special treat! The gorgeous Chelsea over at Pretty & Polished sent me a mini of one of her brand new frankens called Carni for review. For those of you that don't know, Chelsea is the queen of dusty hunting (most of my silver cap China Glaze have come from her) and she also has an Etsy page with all of her amazing one of a kind works of polish art!

So looking at this polish in the bottle, I figure it would be a full coverage glitter with a few coats, but I still wanted to show each on it's own as well.

The glitter is pink blue and purple small round, with a few big pink and blue hex glitters, and a few medium silver hex glitters. I love the little pop of a big glitter here and there, it makes it more interesting in my opinion.

It went on quick and easy, no sliding around of the glitter like a lot of others (with the exception of the biggins, but that's to be expected), it actually dried a lot faster than I was expecting as well. The pictures go in order from one coat to three. I LOVE this on it's own, but it would be beautiful layered too!

What do you guys think of it? I think I'm gonna blind people with my blingy nails in Zumba and in class tonight ;)

Until next time! Happy painting!

OPI Linkin Park After Dark Suede

Hey guys! Yes I have been lucky enough to get myself another suede. I have one on the way, then two more and I'll have them all.

I scored this beauty off eBay for $12.99 + shipping. I thought that was a pretty good deal!

This is two coats and no top coat.

What do you think? Do you have a favorite suede?

Until next time, happy painting!

Julep dots

Hey guys! Today I'm going with easy nail art! I honestly don't remember what blog I saw this on, or I would site her! This was NOT my idea! But I did use it :)

So for today's nails I used the three colors I got in my December Julep box! All you need is a straw!

I used two coats of Helena, and using each end of a normal straw dipped it in Kim and Chloe and added circles, half circles etc.

What do you guys think? At first I wasn't too happy about it, but then I did clean up and it grew on me :)

Until next time, happy painting!

China Glaze OMG, silver holo day 5

Hey guys! I wanted to try and save the best for last :) This OMG I got along with two other polishes from the OMG collection from a salon down the street from me...for $16.50!! I hit the jackpot there ;)

I used two coats, and as most of us know the ChG holo polishes dry really quick which is always awesome :)

What do you think?

Until next time, happy painting!

Rivka Miranda, silver holo day 4

Hey guys! Day 4 :) Rivka Miranda is a Brazilian holo from an entire set Rivka put out. From what I understand it's been discontinued, but I was lucky enough to get this beauty from one of the girls in my PLOP group :)

This is two coats, it went on great and dried pretty fast too!

What do you guys think? I officially have the rest of them on my Brazilian wishlist :D

Until next time, happy painting!

OPI DS Coronation, silver holo day 3

Hey guys! Day three here :) This is DS Coronation, not really HTF but as far as I know it's not one of the current DS polishes.

This is more of a scattered holo, took two coats for full coverage. I think it's really pretty but it's not something that would turn my head from across the room, but would I give it up? Probably not ;)

What do you think?

Until next time, happy painting!

OPI DS Shimmer, silver holo day 2

Hey guys! Day 2 of silver holo week :) Today is OPI DS shimmer. As far as I know this beauty is HTF, but I have an amazing bestie who is also polish obsessed and she sent this to me :)

This is more of a top coat kind of holo, too thin on it's own. This is three coats on my naked nails. It makes my nails look a bit more yellow than they are but eh, I'll get over it ;)

What do you think? I've used this two other times, over a neon yellow, it was amazing! And as part of my galaxy nails which turned out 100% better than I had imagined!

Until next time, happy painting!

Nfu-Oh 61, silver holo week!

Hey guys! Today is going to be day one of 5 of different silver holos, followed by a comparison post at the end ;)

Today we have Nfu-Oh's 61, I thought I would be disappointed honestly, because in my bottle it looked like it wasn't very holo at all, after drying it was a different story!! I used three coats because it was a bit lumpy and streaky. I also don't have aqua base so these pics are with no base or top coat.

What do you think? I also have 63 and love it!!

Until next time, happy painting!

Zoya Robin, with OPI Pink Shatter

Hey guys! Here today with what I'm calling my cotton candy shatter mani :)

I used two coats of Zoya Robin as a base, then one quick coat of the OPI pink shatter. I'm a fan of the OPI shatters, they normally spread pretty well, and quick too!

What do you guys think? I rather like how it turned out, the pink has a slight shimmer in it and would be beautiful over many colors :)

Until next time, happy painting!
