Sation Class Clown + You Butter Tell Me

So I was hoping that because I bought these 2 at the same time that they’d look fairly decent together as well as on there own. So what do you think?

Sation You Butter Tell Me + Class Clown

3 coats of YBTM and 1 of Class Clown. I think this is fun looking and a friend of mine said it looks like a plastic Easter egg.

Sation, Shyest Shade

Here we go! Another Sation! A darling white hexagon jammed packed glitter polish! I will compare and re update later but I find this to look quite similar to OPI Pirouette My Whistle , but alas time constraints are h0lding me back ATM.

To me Shyest Shade is a good name for this polish, it seems to subtle but once you get it out of  its shell  botttle it has SUCH a sparkly personality.

Sation Shyest Shade

Sation Shyest Shade is one coat over  Sation Oh My Oceania. Love how Sation’s glitters come out very easily, they’re thicker so it seems like less messing around on placement. They just gone on with few strokes. I don’t really have too much to say except that I hope to be ordering more from Miss Professional Nails soon. 😀

Sation Class Clown

So I recently ordered 4 polishes from Miss Professional Nail- Sation. I have only just started hearing about them this year even though they’ve been around for awhile- but apparently just redid their bottles. I really like this new shape- very unique, good size, the older ones look like the round Claire’s bottles, from what I’ve seen. Anyways, Class Clown will be the first of the four I will show.

Sation Class Clown

Sation Class Clown  is a red and blue medium hex glitter, with MORE fine glitter and a smaller sparse amount of black hex glitter in a lime green jelly base. 3 coats and a top coat.  A little gritty but so super glittery. Formula is a little on the thick side but that is so good in this case, it doesn’t glob up. I didn’t really notice in the bottle that there was black glitters because there’s not a lot but I managed to get 2 on 2 fingers haha. Sooo cute and would look great over a green (duh!). Also I know it looks like there’s other colors besides blue and red but it’s just the way light is reflecting off the glitter- I only mention this because looking at the pictures I had to double check the bottle.

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. 😛

China Glaze, Blue Sparrow

 

Oh how I loathe and ♥ this polish. So beautiful in the bottle yet so very difficult to deal with! ALSO IT’S A FAKE!  As in it’s labeled as “Splish Splash” from the summer 2012 collection but alas its not, I have been fooled.

China Glaze Splish Splash

China Glaze Blue Sparrow looks pretty cool in the bottle but it the biggest pain to apply. I did it out doors so maybe that’s a factor, but it dragged a lot and clumped up and dried out fast. Which is why this looks so bumpy. 3 coats and a top coat very pretty but maybe not worth the hassle. If I do put this on again I will do it indoors and I will update this post! It might make a slight difference- but until then- this is all ya get.    -.0

Milani Purple Passion + Milani One Coat Glitter Purple Gleam

Hello! FIRST! I must warn you that I have a lot to say about the following polish!

Today I want to show you the hardest polish to capture on camera! You will see in a few pictures that it almost looks like they are completely different colors.  I think its just my camera, because after this I have another purple polish that doesn’t look like how it is when I have it in my hand or on my nails. But maybe partly it does seem a bit different outdoors.

Milani Purple Passion

Milani Purple Passion

Milani Purple Passion is 3 coats with Sally Hansen Insta dri top coat. This is really smooth and has a hidden blue and pink shimmer that is really stunning outdoors. There was some bubbling but I’m not sure if that had something to do with my top coat?? I will have to re- swatch and update about the bubbling….. These are all outdoors, some are outdoors with a diffused flash.

When I was outside swatching this it all looked like the same thing I was looking at with my own two eyes at the moment. When I started looking at them on my computer I noticed the very first two pictures where NOT even close to being the same color. Then I put my finger next to the screen and was like “Whoa! This looks more blue then purple!”

Milani Purple Passion with computer screen shot and actually polish inside, no flash.

That is actually compared to the picture above and it leads me to believe my camera just want’s it to be BLUE. So, thats STILL not exactly right. Imagine if you will….a little lighter, more of a royal purple color. Thats what it looks like inside.  Sorry this ended up very disappointing. Still a pretty color, just wish my camera didn’t freak out!!!

Here it is with Milani One coat Glitter Purple Gleam

Milani Purple Gleam

If you’re wondering- this is one coat, a slightly thick one with SH topcoat. It wasn’t clumpy either. This is made up of mostly purple and black glitter in a (very light) black tint base. I had to spread it out very thin with a nearly dry brush on a white piece of paper to even be able to tell that the base was very lightly tinted. That’s how densely packed this is. Its a little on the gritty side when dry and definitely needs a top coat.  I used 2 coats of top coat for the following pictures.

China Glaze Prismatic: Prism

Hello! Today I want to show you one of the new China Glaze Prismatic’s, Prism! Which is when described by China Glaze it’s “Grape purple holographic gleams with pink shimmer and glitters with pieces of pink, blue, green, orange, silver and gold. ”  Some of these picture’s turned out a little better then I thought. Be sure to click on the pics to see shimmers and glimmers. 😉

The formula was surprisingly good. Flows onto the nail very smooth for a glitter. 3 coats in these photos with Sally Hansen Inst Dri top coat. If you have a nice thick topcoat and really want this to feel like glass, you should definitely use it. But otherwise it isn’t terribly rough.

I tried to make sure that I took pictures of this in tons of different settings/ lighting. I think none of these pictures (except maybe the second one; inside, no flash, outside light from window) show it being purple. Also, the 4th pic seems to show it a little bit pink/purple. This is such a pretty polish. I was debating between getting this one and “Liquid Crystal”, which is a bright blue. Blue or purple? That’s always a hard question for me haha. I may have to save up and get Liquid Crystal, because I really like Prism. Also if you can find them Wet n’ Wild has dupes of these in their “Coloricon Bejeweled” collection.

So what do you think of the ultra glitter polish?

3 Sally Hansen Polishes in 1 Mani! Golden-I, Rockstar Pink & Multi-Faceted, Oh My!

So lately I’ve been trying to “fill in the gaps” in my collection. I was surprised to find that I didn’t have a regular gold polish. Glitters yes, but nothing that made my nails look gold plated. This is the closest thing I could find to what I was looking for. I wanted something more yellow toned such as 24k gold. This color is more pale such as 10k. I’m still happy with it, especially since finding a gold polish was hard enough.

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear: Golden- I w/ Rockstar Pink on ring finger & Jewel Overcoat: Multi-Faceted on thumb.

The base color is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Golden-I in 2 coats very good formula. The polish is kind of a foil but it isn’t streaky at all and a bit sheer but built up very good. Pretty reflective I think! On the inside of my middle finger you can see a tiny pink reflection.

Rockstar Pink is from the SH Xtreme Wear line also. It has small fuchsia, red and blue glitter and a very fine gold glitter. I can’t remember but it’s most likely 3 coats on the ring finger and just a little bit thinly put on the end of the thumb nail. I was surprised at how well it built up for being a finer glitter. It’s no Milani One Coat Glitter (I’ll be showing that very soon!) but very exceptional!

Sally Hansen Golden-I w/ SH Jewel Overcoat: Multi-Faceted on accent fingers.

SH Jewel Overcoat in Multi-Faceted in 2 gloppy coats. I say gloppy because the formula on this does not want to give up those glitters! So beside the obvious black and silver hexagon glitters, there are some beautiful iridescent hexagon glitters in there. You can see a few a bit better on the outside edge of my thumb in this picture. When I first saw this in the store I thought it was silver, black, blue, yellow glitters.  Apparently there is more then one type of iridescent glitter. From what I looked at in my bottle there are indigo, orange-green & turquoise-green. Some flash a yellow in the right light but I think that might just be the orange green ones. As for the indigo I twirled that bottle around and around and it seems like it is not as iridescent as the others unless you consider it as clear-indigo.  Here is a pretty good picture of the bottle with all it’s goodies.

Sally Hansen Jewel Overcoat: Multi-Faceted

I’m so glad I found this at Walgreen’s for 2 reasons. First being I’ve been wanting a black glitter.  Second being….it’s limited edition!I hadn’t been there in awhile to find out that they had a new display, so I almost missed it.  There was a bunch more (so I’m told) but the one I got was the very last and there was only a few other colors left. Actually the only other Jewel OC left was Ring-a-Ding. Here’s a photo from Steph’s Closet of the display. *click link for better view*

I think Let’s dance would have been my second pick. It seems like Sally Hansen’s Diamond Strength line is very wedding themed, which you can see from this limited edition display and also in their new core line up. Save The Date is from their core line. I love the colors though, cheesy names and all!

So this is probably the most I’ve typed and put into one post so far, not sure if anyone really reads it but either way I hope you liked them. Snatch up a limited edition while you can! I’m sure their all gone considering where I live we’re the last to see these kinds of things.

Have any thought about all this? I’d love to know!

OPI Didgeridoo Your Nails + Jordana Glitter: Sequins

Hello! I just have to point out again before anything that this ALSO has the ugly hangnail. If you’ve read the last two posts you know why I have to point it out every time. But I think these photos has the least visibility of it.

This color is amazing! I’ve been wanting it for awhile now. I saw it last year online and recently a local beauty store received a bunch of discontinued colors and offered them deeply discounted.

OPI Didgeridoo Your Nails

IMO this is the prettiest berry pink nail polish. It has a beautiful gold shimmer that makes it seem like it’s glowing from within. The formula was very nice, good consistency -not too thick or too thin. For the photos- 2 coats+ SH Insta Dri Top coat.

OPI Didgeridoo Your Nails+ Jordana Glitter: Sequins

This is my first time using a Jordana polish. I bought Sequins because I didn’t have anything like it in my collection. It consists of smaller red glitter with medium sized silver, blue and fuchsia hexagon shaped glitter in a clear base. I like clear base because I feel like it gives me more to play with.  Here it is on it’s own.

Jordana Glitter: Sequins

The lighting in this picture is showing the fuchsia a bit more purple then I feel it is especially when looking at just the bottle. One coat for both pictures. The coverage is rather good. I was thinking that I might have to do several coats to get a good mix of the larger glitters with the small. In the near future I will try 3 coats and see how it turns out.
