Designer Piggies: Pacman

Today I tried out these cute water nail decals from Designer Piggies in the Pacman design.

Per the instructions I painted my nails with white and cut the decals to fit my nails.  After my polish dried, I wet the back of the decals, slide them off and placed them on my nails.  The decals come off the backing really easily so you don't tear them when you slide them off.

The inner nerd in me loves this design and I've gotten tons of complements on them already.

These do have a bit of a learning curve.  I stretched mine on my nail a bit which made it look like I have cracks in the design.  They aren't really visible, but of course macro makes it look more obvious.

All in all I like these and plan on purchasing a Halloween set.

You can find these and other designs here.

*This product was sent to me for an honest review.

China Glaze Purr-fect Plum

Purr-fect Plum is from China Glaze's Safari collection for Fall 2012.  It's a vampy berry creme.  It's nice, but it's nothing we haven't seen before.

Application was a bit thick, and I got a few bubbles, but that could be from me just rushing.  Honestly, this isn't the best mani I've done.  The pictures come out looking better than it looks in person.

Anyways, this is 2 coats.

Throw Back Thursday: Cover Girl Midnight Forest

For Throw Back Thursday, I decided to we Midnight Forest which I found in Dollar Tree a year or two ago.  I'm actually not sure how old this is but I believe Cover Girl has stopped making polish  (correct me if I'm wrong) .

Anyways, Midnight Forest is a blackened green as it's name suggests.  I boarders on being frosty and seems to have some silvery frost/shimmer in it.  It's gorgeous!

As for the application, it was a little runny for me, but other than that I had no issues.

This is 3 coats.

Nubar Violet Sparkle

I bought this one a few years ago.  It's from the Sparkle collection for Spring 2010.  It's a gorgeous purple glitter polish.  I love it!  My pictures do it no justice.  It's almost bright, it's so sparkly.

This is 3 coats.

Throw Back Thursday: Hard Candy Ghetto Girl

It's been a while since I've posted and I've missed a few Throwback Thursdays.  School has gotten the better of me along with breaking a nail so far down it bled a bit.  It's grown but it's still not even as evidenced by the pictures in this post.

Anyways, today's Throw Back Thursday is all about Hard Candy Ghetto Girl.  I bought this one in high school about 9 years ago.  It's a metallic silver that is slightly iridescent and gives way to a golden color.

I have no complaints about application, but it's a bit brush stroke-y.

This is 2 coats.

Sidenote: If you decide to search for this polish in google images, make sure you have safe search on.  Let's just say I saw some things that cannot be unseen.
