Nicole by OPI, One Less Lonely Glitter

So I’ve been on the hunt for this purple glitter for a while now. YES, it IS a Justin Bieber polish from the One Less Lonely Girl Collection- in his fave color. Luckily T.J. Maxx had it in a combo pack. So they ended up being…$3 a piece? Pretty good considering they’re more then double that at Target and Walmart. Can’t beat a good deal…and pretty glitter. O.O

Nicole by OPI. One Less Lonely Glitter

One Less Lonely Glitter is one full coat on the ring finer and dabbed on the tips of the rest. I can see me using this glitter on LOTS of other colors. Very pretty, very easy to work with, subtle but pretty. Lavender glitter in a clear base could be opaque in 3-4 coats I bet. A right hand photo did you notice that? Haha, kind hard to do but its done lol.

Here’s a quick look at Sinful Colors Slate that I use underneath. 3 easy coats super nice and smooth. Subtle silver shimmer though it.

Sinful Colors, Slate

Sooooo pretty!

P.S. Sorry I didn’t clean up for some strange reason, I must have been to excited to photograph it. 😛

NOTD: Copper & Terracotta ;)

Here’s a fun combo I did with some recent polishes! Sinful Colors Pandora and Wet n Wild Penny For Your Thoughts.

Sinful colors Pandora and WnW Penny For Your Thoughts

Sinful Colors Pandora

Sinful Colors Pandora

So before I say anything about how many coats I used and the like, I wanted to express how difficult it is (for ME!) to describe this color!! It’s somewhere between brick and rust…. Like a light brick? It’s sorta brown/coral??? Ugh! You know what the best I can think of would be terracotta. Ok so skipping a color description-

Sinful Colors Pandora in 2 coats! I thought this might be a bit more sheer then it actually was. Built up really nice, very smooth and has a beautiful subtle pink/gold (bronze?) shimmer to it. This I think was from their Cast Away collection. I don’t think I would have been able to get this when I did because the display has been long gone but our Walgreen’s is so dead 80% of the time that this bottle was still floating around the beauty department. Lucky me! But that being said- sometimes I underestimate and things I think will still be there later- wont be (hence the frenzy of me buying 3 bottles of Green Ocean).

So despite my incapacity to describe this color, it is pretty isn’t it? If you disagree feel free to say so. My 5 year old said to me “Mommy stop painting your nails that ugly color and come play with me.” Usually mommy painting her nails gives her a chance to bug me because I can’t do too much but sit there and listen!! XD

Sinful Colors Firefly

Sinful Colors Firefly

Hello! I am just itching for summer. You see, where I live, spring has just barely sprung. So to cheer all you north westerner’s up I put a beautiful sunshiny yellow polish before anything else for this post! I actually purchased this because it was on a promotional display (on sale 99 cents!!) which means once its gone I wont be seeing it for a while. Also, because I was rather angry with Sinful Colors Unicorn, a very soft yellow and frustrating beyond belief.

Sinful Colors Firefly

Sinful Colors Firefly is in 3 coats. It is a little bit sheer and smooth. At 2 coats there was still a bit of a visible nail line. It seems there might be a slight VNL in these pictures.The little bubble on the ringer finger is because of my topcoat. I would almost say this is a shimmer BUT it appears to be more glass flecked. Maybe a combo of both. Either way, its stunning for a yellow. I’ve never been partial to yellow but this would be on my top 3!

Firefly IMO goes on a lot better then Unicorn.

OPI Pirouette My Whistle, Skittles Swatch Part 2

Hello! If you missed part 1 click here! I’m not going to say anything else about Pirouette My Whistle (PMW) because it’s all in part 1. But I will say that I love it and I will be using it again in a post, who knows when though?

So here’s the right hand! PMW is 2 coasts on all nails with Sally Hansen Intsa Dri Topcoat. Sorry about the middle finger I was already beyond frustrated to fix it!

OPI Pirouette My Whistle over Kleancolor Melon Green

Kleancolor Melon Green is 3 coats. Kind of frosty builds nicely.

OPI Pirouette My Whistle over Sinful Colors Secret Admirer

3 coats of Sinful Colors Secret Admirer. This doesn’t dry real fast but it doesn’t take forever. 2 coats probably would have been fine. I’m not exactly sure what I was thinking when I choose this. Individually this is different from a regular black because it’s loaded with very fine silver glitter that is just a tiny bit smaller then the silver in the in PMW. So is basically the same as my other index finger just a bit more silver glitter. 😛

OPI Pirouette My Whistle over Revlon Minted

Revlon Minted is in 3 coats. This is another polish that likes to bald badly. So I ended up putting the last coat thick. So apparently while picturing the left hand first I must have pressed it to hard into the camera. I was pretty sure it was dry and since I already had to monkey with it just to get it on the nail in the first place I didn’t want to go through another headache to fix it. Pretty much the same as SC Unicorn on the middle finger, left hand.

OPI Pirouette My Whistle over Sinful Colors Nirvana

3 coats of SC Nirvana. It seems like a few of the SC’s like to bald and never dry. This one isn’t as bad as Unicorn but you have to carefully lay it on thick.

OPI Pirouette My Whistle over Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby

3 coats of SC Ruby Ruby. I pretty good formula especially compared to the majority of the other SC’s I used for this swatching.

I hope you enjoyed the swatches of PMW.

OPI Pirouette My Whistle, Skittles Swatch Part 1

So when I first saw OPI’s  New York City Ballet Soft Shades, I didn’t feel like  it looked like anything I would want. After seeing lots of other bloggers do swatches of the entire lineup there was one that I knew I really wanted. A glitter of course, Pirouette My Whistle!

I did this as a “skittles” swatch because I find it fun to see how some polishes can be very versatile. I also do it this way when I just buy it and I want to try it over everything!!! Sorry the colors aren’t really themed or corresponding, I just grabbed what I thought would be neat under it.

I usually sum up the polish after some pictures but I’m doing it before this time because there are a lot of pictures and I’ve got a bit to say about the colors themselves. In this post I have it on its own and on 4 color polishes.

Pirouette My Whistle(PMW) is in 2 coats  on all nails even on its own with Sally Hansen Insta Dri Topcoat. You could probably skip topcoat. It has a white almost pearl like hexagon glitter with a very fine silver glitter in a clearish base that seems a teensy bit milky in the bottle but doesn’t  translate to the nail that way. The silver glitters have great even coverage of course, not sparse at all. The white glitter on the other hand doesn’t always want to go on. I think that’s mostly due to the base being a little tiny bit runny(which isn’t bad in this case), but its good enough that swiping it over again a few times gives it good result and it isn’t super gloppy. They settle done well and don’t always pull themselves off with each stroke. I think it’s meant to be sparse, but I personally like a little more. I love this polish though! And as with 99% of glitter polish, this is a PAIN to remove.

OPI Pirouette My Whistle over Wet n' Wild Black Creme

OPI PMW on amazingly 1 coat of Wet n’ Wild Black Creme. It was one flawless coast, need I say more?

OPI Pirouette My Whistle over Sinful Colors Unicorn

Sinful Colors Unicorn was 3-4 very frustrating coats. It takes forever to dry. I wanted to scream and break it because it balds badly. Stains like a you wouldn’t believe. Last time I used it was for the rainbow mani, over a white base so I didn’t notice last time.

OPI Pirouette My Whistle over Kleancolors Sheer Pastel Nude

3 coats of Kleancolors Sheer Pastel Nude. I would have left it at 2 but it really is sheer and I thought without the third, there’d be no difference between it and PMW on it’s own.

OPI Pirouette My Whistle over Wet n' Wild On A Trip

WnW On A Trip is 3 coats. Dries fairly quick. Its from the Megalast collection that has the new “ManiCurve Pro Brush”. Very nice brush btw! One stroke for the pinky every time.

This is all on my left hand and part 2 will be on my right! Stay tuned….

Sinful Colors Zeus + Milani Jewel FX: Gems

Hello and welcome! If you’re new here you should check out the last 3 posts so that the next statement makes sense. This is the last of “the ugly hangnail” photos.  Again, I apologize!

Sinful Color’s Zeus is from their spring Cast Away collection. I’m hoping the display is still up, there are a few other’s I would like. The collection has a lot of blues, some purples and a few greens. I think maybe they’re all exclusives to the line except for maybe one.

Zeus may be a dupe for something but I can’t think of it and I don’t own any!

Sinful Colors Zeus

The formula is pretty good, wasn’t as sheer as I thought it might be. I used 2 coats and one coat of SH Insta Dri. this picture is a bit shaded but you can still see the pinky shimmer.

Sinful Colors Zeus

Here you can see the pink shimmer glow!

Sinful Colors Zeus

Sinful Colors Zeus + Milani Jewel FX: Gems

This is 2 careful coats of Gem. The formula was very good a little thick but not soo much that it’s pulling all the glitters away with it. I say careful because when it comes to multi sized glitter I can be a bit particular about where things go. I bought this because surprisingly with the almost half my collection being glitters- I didn’t have a multi color glitter polish. Before buying this I had Jordana’s Glitters Gemstones, Wet’n wild Party of Five Glitters and this one in my hand. I choose this because WW just didn’t have enough color- or many primary colors for that matter.  Jordana’s Gemstones was very similar to Milani’s Gem but it seemed a little more faded, and if I remember correctly- it’s didn’t have multi-sized glitter.

Milani Jewel FX: Gems

Another 2 careful coats.

Personally I love purples and blues but I still can’t get over Zeus. Since that was the last one of my swatching that day I kept it on for as long as it would last me. Which if you know me, that wasn’t very long.

So what are your thoughts on Zeus?

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Are you going to wear green today? I don’t own anything green besides nail polish! Haha! Anyways here is my holiday inspired nail art!

Sorry about my uneven nails….I’m very stubborn when it comes to giving up all my claws just because one or two had to go and ruin it for the rest of them. But eventually I will breakdown and desire orderly-ness  on my nails.

I honestly can’t tell you what color’s where used for the rainbow without diggin’ through my stash. 😛  Majority of them were Sinful Colors. I did the rainbow using the “plastic bag method”, which if you Google that on YouTube you can find a bunch of tutorials and they’re all basically the same. Even though I could have done this free hand with a toothpick (or an orange wood stick) I didn’t feel like wait FOREVER for it to dry on my own hand and risk screwing it up. But yea- just use a white base so all your colors stay vibrant.  Oh and FYI I only did the rainbow itself and free handed the clouds on with the polish brush. ALSO, I had to use some tiny scissors to cute one end because it was too long and it stretched a little bit since it wasn’t completely dry. I’m so impatient.

Also a side note on the glitter over the green- in Kleancolors Gold Caviar they base is a jelly yellow and rather thick IMO so I put a blob of polish on a folded up paper towel and fished out the gold glitters with a orange wood stick and the back of a straight pin for the ones near the top. I still did a swipe on the tips but didn’t want to carry the yellow all the way up and completely changing the vision of green and gold I had!

Hope you have an excellent day and don’t get pinched!

P.S. I never heard of the pinching thing as a kid….not until like highschool. Is that a “new” thing, or did kids just avoid me in school? Hm, now I should go reflect on my childhood….. XD

Rainbow Manicure ♥

Hello! Are you ready for this?! Compared to my last post which made me want to scream with horror, this one makes me want to squeal with delight. I don’t want to type anything else until you see this! FYI I can’t stand the word pastel so I have omitted it from this post with my own “proper” term.

WEEEEEE!!!!!!! I love it! Doesn’t it make you want to hug a unicorn? I think this is something that would be either spring or baby shower appropriate. Now for the technique we’re going to go to one of my most FAVORITE youtuber’s Colette! She was inspired by another person on YT and I was likewise inspired by Colette but for something a little different and softer. I also wanted to show that this is doable on shorter nails.  Anyways she has a wonderful tutorial on how to do this rainbow manicure in neon’s and leopard print. It’s only 3 colors, 4 when you count your base coat. So real quick here’s what I used!

What I used:

  • Base color- OPI Alpine Snow (white)
  • Pink- Sally Hansen “Bubblegum Pink”
  • Yellow- Sinful Colors “Unicorn”
  • Blue- Sinful Colors “Cinderella”
  • Glitter on ring finger- Salley Hansen “Hallucinate”
  • Glitter on other fingers- China Glaze “Snow Globe”

So what do you think are you in love as much as I am? 😉

Sinful Colors Flakies Polish!

So on my weekly visit to Walgreen’s I nearly jumped for joy when I saw that Sinful Colors has their own version of a flakies polish called Green Ocean. It goes with their St. Patrick’s Day display! I honestly can’t tell you what else was on display because when I saw that- that was all I saw! I vaguely remember some skinny striping polishes….probably something they always have though. I’ve noticed that with SC, when they have a holiday display it usually contains colors from their core line. But not always…..especially in this case because I’ve never seen Green Ocean (GO) before. I wish I could have SC other “Ocean’s” a blue and a pink! But the pink is called Deep Red Ocean…? W.e! Picture time!

I’m not sure if I care for it over white….my hubby said it looked like a fungus. GO is a little bit gritty especially if you blob it on like I did on a few fingers. A thicker topcoat would work great. Right now I don’t own any other colored flakies but a short while back Zoya had a promotional thing going on where you got 2 free polishes- you just had to pay shipping. And with my polishes came a color chart with their True collection which has the flakies. I also received the Feel collection color chart with 6 empty spaces…sooooo I decided to fill in one with the GO to compare it that way since I do not actually own any Zoya flakies. I thought at first it might be just like Opal since its green too. But when I pulled the brush out I noticed that there was actual glitters in GO. And in the tray it was a bit less green. Kind of an in between Opal and Maisie( which is blue).

After I bought this I almost immediately regretted not buying a back up. I knew I’d be crazy about this! Luckily I live in a rather small town and when I went back almost a week later there was 2 bottles left so I bought them both!….Sad when you think that even those 2 bottles, actually all 3 are cheaper then a China Glaze or an OPI.
