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: 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!

OPI Touring America swatches

I recently picked up three colors from OPI’s fall collection, these are the only three that seemed interesting to me.


Honk If You Love OPI. Dark vampy purple creme, it’s dark but it still looks purple not black. I did two coats.


Road House Blues. This the one I really wanted from this collection, but I love blues so it’s not surprising! Dark blue creme, again it’s dark but it still looks blue. Two coats.

And a closer shot of the shimmer:

Color To Diner For. I hadn't planned on getting this one, but it looked so pretty and shimmery that I had to! It's a red with lots of red/pink and gold shimmer, I ended up loving this one. This was two coats.

Formula was good on all three, but normally I don't have any problems with OPI. These are the only ones I'm getting from Touring America though, all the other ones seemed close to something I already have.

I still don't have power because of the hurricane (I'm at my parents house so I can use the internet, I'm having internet withdrawals!), and I hear it might not come back until the end of the week. I'm not going to work either, most of the town is without power. Not fun, but at least we have water and there was no major damage so I'm happy for that 🙂

Pink Wednesday: Pink Sponging

Today I just have a quick iPhone pic (also I’m posting this from my phone so I hope it works), because I’m not feeling too good and I’m exhausted, I didn’t sleep until 4:30am and woke at 6:30, I just got back from work so all I want to do is go to bed.

I wanted to try sponging with three different pinks in a gradient and this is how it came out:

I used Orly Lollipop for the base, then I sponged OPI Sparrow Me the Drama on top and sponged the tips with Essie Big Spender. It was fun but I need more practice!
Also, what is that black string on my ring finger? I didn’t see it until after I applied top coat so I’m sure it came from my SV brush! It really bothers me but it was too late to redo that nail. Silly SV!

Pink Wednesday: Fuchsia Shock Crackle!

For today’s Pink Wednesday I wanted to use my Sally Hansen Fuchsia Shock Crackle Overcoat. I did two coats of OPI Steady As She Rose and a coat of the crackle.

I did a thick coat and no top coat, I like my crackles without top coat 🙂

Here it is in the shade:

I like the combo! 😀

Pink Wednesday: Finger Paints Did You Ast-Her Out? with glitter tips!

It’s Pink Wednesday again, yay!! Today I’m wearing Finger Paints Did You Ast-Her Out? with OPI Servin’ Up Sparkle at the tips!

Did You Ast-Her Out? is a bright pink jelly, very pretty! I did two coats and I could still see nail lines but I was covering the tips with glitter so it didn’t bother me.

Sadly the sun was a jerk and it went away, it’s raining now, so the pictures don’t show all the sparkle. It looks a lot more sparkly in person! 🙂

NOTD: Grape…Set…Match & Servin’ Up Sparkle

Yay, I finally found the OPI Serena Williams Grand Slam England, I’ve been wanting it since I started seeing pictures of it!

I did two coats of Grape…Set…Match. It’s so gorgeous!! It’s a reddish grape purple with tons of pink, purple and blue shimmer. I couldn’t stop looking at it and I took lots of pictures!

I took this one after four days of wear and there are no chips and only minimal tipwear, my right hand shows a bit more tipwear since I’m right-handed.

I added one coat of Servin’ Up Sparkle, I almost didn’t want to because I like Grape…Set…Match so much, but I wanted to see what it looked like with the holo glitter.

This is sooo sparkly!! I love this look as well, so I’m glad I got this set! 🙂

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! 😀
