NOTD: OPI Swimsuit…Nailed It!

(or NOA few days ago, that I couldn’t get to post because of the weather)

Hello! When I started seeing swatches of OPI Miss Universe I knew I had to get Swimsuit…Nailed It! It looked gorgeous in pictures and when I tried it, it did not disappoint!

This is so gorgeous!! I love blues, and add some foil-y, glass flecked shimmer, and I’m all over it! 😀

And because I can’t seem to leave things alone, after a few days I added a coat of OPI Servin’ Up Sparkle

These pictures don’t really show all the different colors and sparkle on this, it’s so much prettier in person! I love Servin’ Up Sparkle so much, I want to layer it over everything! Maybe if I do I might get a color accurate picture 😛

Edit to add: This stained a lot, I still have blue on my nails! Next time, I’ll double on the base coat, it is worth it though!

NOTD: Glitter Gal Blue

Hello! It’s rainy and dark and miserable out today, I hate days like these! 😦
Luckily yesterday was sunny and beautiful, so I decided to try my new and only Glitter Gal polish!

This is…Blue! (very original, I know)

Look at the awesome gorgeous holo!! I did three thin coats, next time I’ll probably apply it over something else so I can do less coats, because the bottle is tiny! The brush is ok though.
It’s so amazing in person, and very distracting, I couldn’t stop looking at my nails! It deserves more pictures, so here you go:

And my brother’s kitty tried to sneak in one of the pictures 🙂

It’s a bit on the expensive side for a tiny bottle, but if you love holos (and I do!) I think it’s worth it. I know I’ll be ordering more Glitter Gal polishes soon! 😀

Blue Iguana

China Glaze Blue Iguana from their recent Island Escape collection:

Blue Iguana is a sparkly, foily blue glass fleck with turquoise and purple-ish shimmer, although the purple is more noticeable in the bottle than in the nail. This was pretty sheer, so I did three coats and there is still some vnl. I love the color so I don’t really mind though.

My husband has gone camping until tomorrow night (or Sunday morning), so I’m home alone now and there is a storm going on, it’s supposed to go on until midnight. I hate thunderstorms! I think I’m going to swatch some polishes on my nail wheels and then go curl up with my kitty.

Essie Coat Azure

I didn’t really plan any holiday manicures for the 4th of July, and I knew I wouldn’t have much time today, so I did my nails with Essie Coat Azure, which is blue, so it counts right?
Anyway, Happy 4th!

Essie Coat Azure

I think the picture is a little lighter than in person. I did two coats but one thick coat would probably be fine.

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! 😀

Essie Smooth Sailing and why I love it so much…

I got Smooth Sailing and a few others a while ago at Rite Aid, when they were having their sale on Essies. I remember the cashier said, wow that must be good polish! (in a nice way) when I dumped the handful of polishes on the counter. And I said YES!! They are awesome! Ok, I didn’t say it like that but I was thinking it! I really love my Essies, they last forever on me and haven’t had any problems with any of them so far.

Anyway, this is Smooth Sailing, and it’s beautiful!!

See how pretty? With it’s lovely blue base color and the sparkly silver shimmer! So so pretty! I think it’s obvious that I’m in love with this color, it has quickly become one of my favorites, I think I’ll have to get a backup! 🙂
And I couldn’t choose a picture so there’s lots!

And a closer shot:

And even though I thought it couldn’t get any better, after a few days I added CND Sapphire Sparkle on top, and it turned into this!


(sorry about the tipwear, I’d been wearing this for a while!)

My pictures don’t really show how sparkly and beautiful this turned out, it flashed purple, blue and silver 😀


I loved this combination!

Anyway, I’m really glad I picked this one up and I enjoyed wearing it so much!

NOTD: Butter London Victoriana

Hi! I was at Ulta when I saw a Butter London display I hadn’t seen before, I had a coupon so I picked up Victoriana! I remembered seeing swatches online and loving it so I couldn’t wait to try it!
It’s a muted blue with a bit of green and lots of silver shimmer, I did two coats here but maybe one could be enough. I’m in love with this color, it’s beautiful! I gravitate towards blues and shimmers so it shouldn’t be a surprise that I love this one so much! 🙂

And here is a detail shot:
