China Glaze Metal Crackle skittles

I went to Sally’s and they had an almost full display of the metallic crackles! I picked up Latticed Lilac, Haute Metal, and Oxidized Aqua. I tried them over my current Essie Braziliant mani I posted earlier.

Oxidized Aqua, Haute Metal, Latticed Lilac, Oxidized Aqua

And this is my right hand:

Oxidized Aqua, Haute Metal, Latticed Lilac, Oxidized Aqua

I really like these crackles! I did thin coats and they applied and crackled well. Haute Metal and Latticed Lilac look very similar in the pictures but they are different in person. Since these are a little paler/lighter and not as bold as creme crackles I think they would look better over a bright colored polish. I think they all look good over Braziliant, my favorite is Oxidized Aqua! 🙂

NOTD: China Glaze Senorita Bonita

Hello! I got three only polishes from China Glaze Island Escape collection, and the first one I tried is Senorita Bonita:

This is as close as I could get to the right color, my camera wouldn’t pick up how pretty this really is. It’s purple/pink with pink and blue tiny glitter. Very bright and glowy! 😀
I did two coats and it was a bit sheer, I probably should have done three.

And I closer looks that shows a little bit of all the sparkles in this polish:

Orly Bailamos

This is Bailamos from last year Orly’s summer collection. It’s a teal turquoise shimmer, so pretty!

And this is what I was wearing when I got my Crackles, so I added a coat of Black Mesh on top, I was in the car and tested it really quick so the only one I liked was my index finger. But I liked the color combination!

China Glaze Pelican Gray with Milani Silver Dazzle

Hello! This is China Glaze Pelican Gray with the tips in Milani Silver Dazzle from their One Coat Glitters, it took me a while to track these down, but finally found this one, the blue and purple one which were the ones I wanted.
I used tape to do the tips but didn’t wait long enough for Pelican Gray to dry so it’s not very crisp and smudgey, not as good as I hoped.

Milani Dude Blue with China Glaze Atlantis

I tried to do a gradient with more coats of Atlantis at the tips, but I’m not sure if the pictures show it very much. Still, it’s so pretty and sparkly!!

We finally got our house a month ago and I’ve been really busy with wedding stuff, and moving/fixing up the house, I didn’t have internet for about a month and my laptop is almost dying, so haven’t been able to post but I’ll try to post my recent manis.

Christmas manicures!

I have two manis I did for the holidays.

This is Orly Meet Me under the Mistletoe

I was expecting it to be a little more flakey and shimmery from the bottle, but I still love this green! I had this on the last couple of days and got several comliments! 😀

And this is the one I’ll wear this evening and on Christmas day tomorrow
China Glaze Re-fresh Mint

Stamped with bells design from a BM plate in China Glaze Ruby Pumps.

My index finger got smudged but I still have lots of gift wrapping to do so I can’t redo it now and I like how the rest of them turned out!! 😀

Merry Christmas!!!
