Grrrr This Polish Drove Me Krazey...
Sinful Colors Purple Kraze I felt like something a little different today so I thought I would give matte finish a try. For this I chose Sinful Colors Purple Kraze from the Kylie Jenner collection. I painted my nails in the evening because I had plans to spend Sunday with Mr. Nailvanna. The formula had a great consistency and I didn't have any issues applying it. Because I knew I would not be adding top coat I gave it ten minutes between coats and I applied two layers. I t
Essence 138 OK girls... today I am going to confess to a hideous crime. I am very sorry for my actions and promise never to do it again... No my fingers are not crossed... not all of them anyway. Pictured above is Essence 138 L.O.L. My daughter received this in a makeup kit for Christmas and since she takes my stuff all the time I figured it was my turn! I own a few other polishes by Essence and I have liked the ones I have tried in the past but they were all glitter toppe
Bonne Bell Paradise The days where I get to stop at the post office to pick up mani mail on my way home are some of my favorites. Can you really blame me though? My post office is in the back of a drug store so every occasion I have to stop in I run through the nail polish isle. If you are surprised in any way by that you must be new to my blog. I have walked past the Bonne Bell display every time and reminded myself I should really check that one out sometime. I had the
This Little Hottie's a Killer!
Hard Candy Little Hottie Hard Candy Little Hottie is definitely hot stuff. A shimmery deep pink that shifts closer to a red than a pink. I loved the finished look of this polish, it looked like a foil without actually being one. The shimmer from the bottle translated beautifully on the nails and the formula has a great consistency that makes it very easy to apply. I used three coats but two may have been enough for opacity before I applied top coat. I was asked many times
Orly Risky Behavior Sunny days have me reaching for my bright and happy colors and Orly Risky Behavior has been waiting for me to wear it since Christmas. It's a shame to keep such a pretty polish waiting don't you think? The formula for this nail polish was nothing short of fantastic. One coat and I had opacity. Are you listening my stamper friends out there? It has a great consistency as well so no streaking or running. Risky Behavior is very well behaved in my opinion.
Let It Reign!
L'Oreal Reign Of Studs Since I really had a lot of fun playing with the last textured polish I though I would give another one a try. I liked the look of L'Oreal Reign Of Studs in the bottle and thought it would make a more then suitable candidate for the texture experiment. I have tried another polish from the 3D textured Gold Dust Collection a while back called I Like it Chunky and I drowned it in top coat right from the beginning. This time I wanted to give the textured
Thistle Do Nicely
China Glaze Thistle Do Nicely I never would have believed it a few years back if you would have told me that I would seriously be crushing on the neon nail polishes. I tried one on just to be polite when I received one as a gift and I was sold! I loved having crazy bright nails and that illusion of having a tan is pretty appealing. This past weekend I took mini me shopping for shoes and of course we came home with nail polish as well. China Glaze Thistle Do Nicely looked so
ILNP Valerie ILNP Valerie is described as a a stunning and incomparable mulberry leaning jelly by ILNP.com. It's a very berry purple jelly filled with scattered holographic micro-flakes. It's the last one that I had left to try from the 2016 Spring Jellies Collection and now that I have tried them all I can say with certainty that I loved every single one. The formula for Valerie was smooth and easy to control just like the rest of this collection. I used three coats for
Revlon Joker's Wild Revlon Joker's Wild was an easy to work with formula but it was a bit on the thin side. I found that I needed to go a little slower with this polish because of that and needed three coats for opacity. I would recommend thin coats if you want to avoid flooding your cuticles. I used my regular top coat instead of the Color Stay Gel Envy because it's awesome and I feel that it dries glossier. When I'm wearing a creme polish I want it glossy, very glossy! Jo
I'm All About That Base!
Maybelline Porcelain Party I love how clean and crisp white nails look and there is something just so feminine about it. Unfortunately white nail polishes are more often than not streaky, have issues leveling and it feels like you are painting your nails with acrylic. I don't even want to try to put a number on how much money I have spent on nail polish in my life so far *cringe* but you would think I would have found the perfect white by now. Why is it that just about any b
