China Glaze 108 Degrees and Silver Shatter

This is the last of the polishes I got from China Glaze Island Escape collection, and like the other two I love this one as well!

Lovely bright pink in that glass fleck shimmery finish that’s I love! This was 2-3 coats.

And a closer look

After a couple of days I added OPI Silver Shatter

I loved this combo, so sparkly and pretty!! 😀

NOTD: OPI DS Coronation w/Black konad

Hello! This is my mani for the day, the sun finally came out so I decided to try a holo.

I started to with three coats of OPI DS Coronation over a coat of Essie Matte About You. I had to do three coats because it was a little sheer and I could still see bald spots after two coats. But it’s so pretty and sparkly! I couldn’t stop looking at my nails in the sunlight!

I used Essie MAY as my base because I don’t have a holo base and I’d read matte top coats work well for holos. I don’t really know whether it worked or not. I had chips on 3 or 4 nails after a few hours. But, right after doing my nails I baked cupcakes and washed dishes which I never do, so I’m not sure if that had something to do with it and I didn’t let them dry for long enough.

Anyway, because I was going to konad over it, it didn’t bother me too much. I stamped a design on plate m64 with black polish.m

The holo was more obvious in person but maybe it wasn’t sunny enough for it to show up in pictures. I really liked how this turned out even though I didn’t realize until after that the stamp on my index finger was on the wrong side! 😀

NOTD: Zoya Caitlin w/Navy Shatter

I’ve been trying to use some of my untrieds and I’ve had Caitlin since Zoya had that whole collection on sale.

Here is two coats of Zoya Caitlin:

It’s a blue grayish purple, I think is lovely!

And I’ve playing with shatter/crackles lately, so I added a coat of OPI Navy Shatter:

Navy shatter applied well, so far I like it most of all my OPI shatters!
I like the combination, I think when I wear this shatters I prefer to do it over colors that are similar or in the same color family, instead of really contrasting color. They look subtler that way and I guess I like that look more! 😀

Hello! I’m back from my wedding/honeymoon/house-buying and everything else! 😀

This is OPI Planks a Lot from their new POTC collection:

Pretty dusty purple!

And I added some lines using tape and Milani Purple Gleam:

First time I tried something like this, it’s not perfect but I’m ok with it, my SV started bubbling though, not sure why.

Valentine’s Day Nails

I’m late posting this, but I didn’t have my laptop with me yesterday so I’m doing it today!

This is two coats of OPI Do You Think Think I’m Tex-y?, then I stamped a heart design from a BM and put a coat of CND Amethyst Sparkle on top.
