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! 😀
