Elevation Polish Yeti's Healing Vibes

Hi everyone!  I hope you've had a great week!  I for one have been looking forward to the long weekend.

Today I have a charity polish from Elevation Polish called Yeti's Healing Vibes.  Lulu created this special Yeti to raise money to help aid Nepal.  It's being sold for $12 and during the month of May, Elevation will donate $10 for each Yeti's Healing Vibes sold and from June on, they will donate $5.  The proceeds will be donated to the American Himalayan Foundation.  You can read more about it in Lulu's blog posts here and here.

Yeti's Healing Vibes is a dusty light green crelly filled with ultra chrome flakies as well as some shimmer.  The formula is a little on the thick side, but goes on nicely.

This is 2 coats.

Twinsie Tuesday - Inspired by Your Favorite Mug

Hi everyone! Today's Twinsie Tuesday inspiration is my favorite mug.  I have no idea where it came from (my mom bought them for me), but it's definitely my go to for everything, especially hot chocolate and chai tea.  I'm not much of a coffee drinker unless it's in my frapuccino, ice cream, or tiramisu.

For these nails I used the fan brush technique.  For the colors I used China Glaze At Vase Value (I forgot how much this formula sucked!), Essie Greenport, and Elevation Polish Thunder Basin (which came out looking black, but I swear it's brown!).  I love my mug, but this look did not translate AT ALL.  I wanted to incorporate the brown rim in my mani, as well as the random brown dots.  I should have left that out, but I'll definitely try the fan brush mani again soon!  In the mean time, don't laugh!

**Elevation Polish Thunder Basin was sent for an honest review.

Check out the other Twinsie's posts! Hopefully they did better than me!

Pahlish May Duo - Golden Afternoon

Press Sample

Hi everyone! Today I have Pahlish's May Duo to show you.  This month's theme is Alice in Wonderland.  I'll have the Through the Looking Glass Collection up on Friday or Saturday, but for now let's take a look at the duo.

First up is Dizzy Daffodils.  This one is a pretty peachy pink cream with pink micro flakies.  No application issues.  This is 2 coats.

The second part of the duo is String of Violets.  This one is a topper and has holo, pink and ultrachrome flakies and a bit of shimmer.  It seems like the base has a bit of a pink tinge, but that make be because of the pink flakies.  I put one coat over Dizzy Daffodils.
