Pink Wednesday: China Glaze Electra Magenta konad

I’m still without power at home, but at least the weather is great, very nice and sunny, and I can do my nails by the window with the sunlight. So, I have my Pink Wednesday ready for today! 😀

Haven’t done any stamping in a while, so I gave it try for this mani. I started with two coats of OPI Steady As She Rose and stamped a design from a Konad plate (I don’t have it with me to see the number), with China Glaze Electra Magenta.

I really like how this turned out, even though I missed a spot on my pinky, it’s a cute stamp! Happy Wednesday! 😀

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! 😀

Color Club Revvvolution

I had a really hard time photographing this one, the sun hides every time I wear a holo so that didn’t help!
I tried but these pictures do not make this polish justice:

I used two coats and it was opaque. It’s awesome!

And a close up that kind of shows the pretty holo:

I will have to try this one again, and get some better pictures. I’m not sure if this is the good holo version, or one of the duds but I love it either way! 😀

Pink Wednesday: China Glaze 3D Fantasy

It’s Pink Wednesday again! Today I tried a scattered holo from China Glaze Tronica collection. And of course today the sun didn’t want to come out!

3D Fantasy

I like the color, reddish pink with a bit of coral, but I don’t see much holo 😦

3D Fantasy

Happy Wednesday! Thanks for looking! 🙂

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! 😀

This is Nubar Reclaim and it’s amazing!! It’s my first Nubar too, I wish they had more holos like this one!
I took several pictures because I thought this polish deserved it!

So pretty!!

I love having rainbows on my nails!

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.

Milani Hi-Tech

I’ve had a rough month between moving, working crazy hours, being sick and the horrible weather we’ve been having. So I blame the packing/unpacking and the winter for the my nails, hands and cuticles not being in good shape.
Anyway, I wanted something bright and happy on my nails since it’s so dark and gloomy out here and I decided on Milani Hi-Tech, it’s a very pretty holographic green.

It definitely brightened up my mood, and the holo really comes out in the sunlight! 😀

Color Club Fashion Addict

I’m really behind on posting pictures, I have been busy with work and wedding planning!

Anyway, this is Color Club Fashion Addict. I loved it so much I took lots of pictures.

And close up shot:

It’s lovely in the sunlight, and lasted more than the other CC colors I’ve tried, which is great because I was ready to give up on that brand! 😀
