Polish 'M Neutral Party

Hi everyone!  April has been a crazy month so I've taken a bit of a blogging vacation, but I'm back.

Today I have Polish 'M (formally known as Laquerlicious) Neutral Party from the spring collection. It has a nude base and is filled with gold shimmer, neon pink, yellow, and green, as well as baby blue glitter and white and nude square glitters.  I love the neon and nude together.

Application on this was very easy and it's smooth after just one coat of topcoat.

This is 3 coats, but you could probably get away with 2.

Polish 'M Neutral Party retails for $8 per polish.  Be sure to check them out at the links below!

Twinsie Tuesday - Watercolor Nails

I'm a little late with my Twinsie Tuesday post, but I had a presentation today and things have been so crazy it slipped my mind.

Anyways, watercolor! I've been meaning to try this out for a while and this was the perfect opportunity.  There are a couple different ways to go about this, and I decided to do use sharpies since that's what I have (I guess I should invest in some acrylic paints).

Materials:

  • White Polish (I used China Glaze Snow)
  • Matte top coat (I used Essie Matte About You)
  • Sharpie markers (Use whatever color you want, just make sure they're "juicy")
  • Plastic ziploc bag
  • Isopropyl alcohol
  • Small paint brush (I used the ELF concealer brush that I use for cleanup)
  • Top coat (optional)
Steps:
  1. First paint your nails white and after it's dry apply your matte top coat.  The matte topcoat helps the the water color stick to your nail.
  2. On the plastic bag color a section with one of the sharpies.
  3. Dip your brush into the alcohol and "mix" it with the sharpie that you colored in on the plastic bag.
  4. Using the same brush dab it on your nails however you want.
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 using different colors and until you get your desired look.
  6. You can leave as is if you like the matte look or you can add a top coat for some shine.

Ever After Polish Spring Back to the Future Collection Swatches and Review

Press Sample

Hi everyone! I meant to get this up on Wednesday and my sd card corrupted in the middle of uploading, so I had to run to the store to buy a new one and reswatch some things. It's better the sd card than my camera or computer though!

Today I'm showing you the Ever After Polish Spring Back to the Future Collection which consists of 7 Back to the Future themed polishes.  I loved Back to the Future and the ride at Universal Studios was my favorite.  I'm still kind of mad they closed it and the E.T. ride down.  Anyways, on to the swatches!

Twinsie Tuesday - Seasonal Opposites

Press Sample

Today's Twinsie Tuesday post is all about seasonal opposites.  This prompt is pretty broad, but since it's spring and its opposite is fall, I'm going to go with a tape mani using two colors that represent opposite seasons.  I used China Glaze Dashboard Dreamer, a pastel blue with orange gold shimmer, to represent spring and Elevation Polish Thunder Basin, a dark brown creme, to represent fall.
