Revlon Star

Hello! I have just a couple swatches here today. I picked up Revlon's Star in a haul a while ago and decided to try it out and see how dense the glitters are. (forgive my stained nails) : 

One coat

two coats

three coats

three coats again

As you can see, it is pretty build-able. This is definitely something that would look great over some other colors.
The formulation is not too bad, it was a bit difficult to get the hexagonal glitters though. I felt I had to try pretty hard to get the brush to catch onto the bigger glitter pieces. It did glide on pretty smoothly and again, I think would look great over some colors.

What do you guys think?

Nubar 2010!

Oh hello there lovely readers! I will definitely be at least a little bit less absent in the next coming days/weeks. I have some things lined up! ;) YAY. finally. haha Okay! So here is the famous Nubar 2010

I put two coats of Nubar 2010 over two coats or ELF's Black
This was probably my first nail polish that I specially sought after and bought online. I've seen so many pictures and drooled over for so long before I allowed myself to justify the cost. It wasn't all too expensive, but the cost of shipping along with the actual price of the bottle is still more than if I went to the store to by the polish (obviously..). But, NO REGRETS! Definitely not, it is absolutely gorgeous!! 

I don't have the Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure, so I can't compare them, but I have definitely seen swatches and comparisons of them and they look pretty similar. What do you guys think of this polish?


Awesome Giveaway!

I just wanted to let you know about an awesome giveaway! So many prizes and so many chances for winning!

You guys should check it out! :)

I Sea some Corals

Hello everyone! Yet another puny title :) 
Today I have such a pretty mani to show you guys! Really loving this combo. And of course, more blue for this month to bring the awareness of Autism. :) 

Here I have two coats of China Glaze's Sea Spray and on my accent nail I have two coats of Orly's Gilded Coral. I absolutely love both colors so much. And the formulation was pretty good. Had not trouble with the application. 

What do you guys think?

Hello everyone!
As most of you know, today is 4/20, I thought I would put up a mani that SEMI resembles the day. I actually don't condone this day, and am personally pretty grossed out by the smell, but to each his own, I guess. 

So here is a mani I actually did not really enjoy. It's funny too because I've eyed these two colors for such a long time because I decided to throw in the towel to buy them, but they were a bit of a disappointment. 

Here we have two coats of O.P.I's Jade is the New Black and on my accent nail (ring finger) two coats of Essie's Incognito

I think it could just my skin color. Or maybe I'm just not use to wearing darker greens. Or maybe..both? Either way, I just felt unsettled when I had this mani on. I might go back to these colors in a bit, because I know that there are some colors that I love now that I didn't like a couple months/years ago. 

What do you guys think?

Sally Hansen HD: Laser

Hello! I have yet another blue mani for this awesome month for Autism Awareness Month!

Here I have four coats of Sally Hansen's Laser. Definitely an awesome color. It was a tiny bit hard to work with partially because it was so thick and partially because it wouldn't really dry due to the amount of coats I put on. But still, what a lovely color!!

What do you think?

This mani Blue My Mind!

Oh man! I am just so punny!! I crack myself up all the time :) 

Okay, so as you can guess the mani I have for you today is a very blue mani! As most of you know, this month is Autism Awareness Month, and the color to represent Autism is blue. Here is what I have:

excuse the tip wear: pic taken a week after mani
On my nails I have: two coats of O.P.I: Blue My Mind and on my accent nails I have 4 coats of Orly's Winter Wonderland. I absolutely love the colors individually and the combination today. I apologize that the picture isn't the best with the flash, but it was night time.

The gold stars just add even more awesomeness to this mani :)

China Glaze Frostbite

I'm back!! wohoo!! I do apologize once more for not being more active. But I do want to try to start posting more! Wish me luck!

This month is Autism Awareness Month and the color that represents that is blue! So here is a mani I really like! 

I'm not sure why I posted both pictures up, they kind of look exactly the same. haha But I always love lots of pictures on other people's blog, so I guess two is better than one. Ignore the tip wear, I think I've worn this mani for about a week before I remembered to take a picture of it. 

On all my nails except my accent nail is China Glaze: Frostbite and my accent nail was kind of inspired by Chloe's Nails on her Dorothy & Her Diamond Necklace post quite a while ago. I really like the way she put China Glaze's Dorothy Who over black, so that's what I did. On top of that, I put Boundless Color: Gold Rush, just to be more glittery. I actually really enjoyed how this turned out, and got quite a few compliments on it, which is always a plus! 

Hope you guys are all doing well!
