Dancing nails by Sinful colors

20131002-175243.jpg

Hey lovelies! This weeks mani is more on the femme side. I don’t often do pink but this one I could not pass up. It’s called dancing nails from the hot flash metallics collection. I used two coats. Application was very smooth, no dragging at all or bubbles 🙂 and dries pretty quick too! You should all go out and by it! On my accent nail I did a water marble with I think it’s called dark bronze. Hope you guys like this weeks mani. And here’s my new YouTube video as well on makeup I got at the drugstore and a score I made on some awesome palettes for only $2.99!!

Hey guys! I have always wanted to start a youtube channel so I just went ahead and did it a few days ago. Of course it’s going to be all about beauty topics. I have only my intro video posted but will be posting another video soon. The theme is affordable products and whats good whats not good and maybe down the line nail and make up tutorials. I thought I would run it by you guys since I know all of you are already interested in anything beauty related. Check it out and subscribe! Thanks all my beauties!

Mystic green “holographic”

Hello my beauties! I have another new polish I got a couple days ago. I saw the display for the maybelline holographic collection and there was one color I just had to have. Mystic green!

Even though the bottle says holographic it’s not. It’s still a wonderful color though and I say buy it! The application was smooth as can be but it’s sheer. Normally that would deter me but the color goes on so smooth and dries really fast so three coats didn’t bother me much. It has the most beautiful shimmer and my indoor and outdoor, sun and shade pictures look like totally different polish! So I guess in some lights it could be a duo chrome.

I would say the only downfall is how sheer it is. Even with three coats it’s not the color the bottle is. You could go for a fourth coat since the formula is so thin.

But like I stated above the smoothness of the application and the gorgeous color makes me forget all about how sheer it is! I give this polish a thumbs up!

Pure Ice “I’ll never tell” swatch/review

Hey guys! I’ve been feeling under the weather lately and feeling like allergies are getting the best of me. I just switched to a different medication and the past few days have been a bit better so I thought I would try out a polish I’ve had but haven’t used yet. It’s by Pure Ice and its called “I’ll never tell” it’s a dark rich brown with what looks like brown glitter and a slightly lighter maybe silver hued flakies.

The color was opaque in two coats. I was wary bc I bought another pure ice which I thought would be opaque and it turned out to be very sheer so I was pretty happy with this one being opaque. The flakies makes the application a bit tricky. It’s not terrible but it’s not smooth either. I would highly recommend a thick layer of top coat after applying this polish. It dries rather slow so I used a fast dry top coat, seche vite. On my accent nail I used some striping tape to add a couple diagonal lines to add some character and then a gold glitter polish by sinful colors called all about you. I love love love all about you. It’s very dense with gold glitters and some copper ones throughout. You can see the base color below just enough but I can easily get covered up by all the glitter so be careful and use a thinner coat when using this polish. It goes on super smooth as well.

I would recommend “I’ll never tell” being that it is only $1.98 at Walmart. It’s a good polish for the price and I love the color. It’s the first time I’ve tried out a brown polish and I love it! Def a thumbs up! The only downfall is the flakies making it a bit tricky to apply. Hope you guys like this swatch/review. Have a splendid week and weekend everyone!

Vampy, Sultry manicure

Hi everyone! This week is another simple mani. I’ve been super lazy lately and am enjoying the more..simple look. Besides with dark colors I think it’s almost better to have a simpler manicure.

I went with a very dark red leaning brownish bronze. It could easily be mistaken for black in dim lighting but don’t be fooled it is a dark luscious red! Makes me think of a vampire nail polish 🙂 I used sinful colors rich in heart and for the accent I used sinful colors all about you over the rich in heart. The application was smooth and very opaque. Only needed two coats and if you are a super skilled manicurest (I think I just made me own word?) then it could be a one coater!

Hope you guys enjoy this color!

PLUMmet from the sky! Mani

Hey guys! This week I was going to do another gradient effect mani but I didn’t feel like all the clean up and I’ll be honest I didn’t feel like doing anything special so I went with a color I have but haven’t used yet.

It’s called I’m a pool for love by Nicole OPI. I think it’s from a spring collection? My sister and law gave it to me so I’m not 100% sure what collection. It’s a super dark purple blue. It looks black in dim lighting but has an awesome blue/purple glimmer. I wanted to add some sparkle as usual. So I used a silver holographic looking sparkle from funky fingers. I love this glitter! It’s so sparkly and it’s silver but sparkles like a rainbow!

I used two coats for this color. Application was smooth and its not super thick. Two thin coats is perfect for me. Topped off with seche vite. Let me tell you I could not capture the color of this polish for the life of me. Some are blurry to show the purple blue glimmer. Hope you guys like it 🙂

I think it’s a bit dark for me. I might take it off in a couple days but I do like the color in general.

Hey ladies! I’m still not sick of the gradient/ombre theme so I have yet another one for this week. I really love the coloring that peacocks have and I wanted to give that color scheme a try with the gradient effect. I used an emerald green, a royal purple blue, dark purple and a gold. On my ring finger I added a copper glitter just to add some more sparkle. You can use any brand and shade you want but the exact polishes I used are….

China glaze – running in circles
Pure Ice – deja vu
Sally hansen hard as nails – rock bottom
Sally hansen – golden I
Sinful colors – all about you
Seche clear
Seche vite

Over all I like this mani and it came out decent. I messed up a tiny bit but I would be the only one who can notice it. I love the colors together. The only problem I had was deja vu and rock bottom seem to be pretty sheer and I had to sponge several times before it would show up on top of the green. But other than that it reminds me of a peacock! Here’s the pics and I hope you enjoy!
