Pink Wednesday: China Glaze Rich & Famous with CND Effects

Hello! It’s Wednesday again and that means we wear pink!

For today’s mani I used China Glaze Rich & Famous, this is my go to pink, it’s bright and pretty without being a neon (which I don’t think look good on me), dries quick, and the formula is nice and smooth!
I did two coats here and could still see a bit of vnl, but it’s not too bad. And I added a coat of CND Effects Amethyst Sparkle

(sorry about the cat hair on my middle finger, it’s everywhere!!)

And a closer shot to see the sparkle:

I love the CND Effects, so pretty! 🙂

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! 🙂

Zoya Rica

Hi, here’s a quick pic of Zoya Rica from their Sunshine collection. I got it a while ago, but I didn’t really like it much on me, here it is anyway:

This was two coats, I believe. I was hoping it would be more orange on me, but it’s mostly coral, I should’ve gotten Tanzy!

Pink Wednesday: Essie Super Bossa Nova with Haute Metal

Hello and happy Wednesday! For my pink nails today, I put on two coats of Essie Super Bossa Nova

It was really pigmented so I could have done one coat, but I always do two. I love this pink, it’s bright but not neon, and has lots of purple fuchsia shimmer!

Look at all the shimmer:

And then I added a coat of China Glaze Haute Metal:

I really like this week’s Pink Wednesday!! 🙂

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!! 😀

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.

Pink Wednesday!

Today I’m doing my first Pink Wednesday mani.
I chose Essie Your Hut or Mine:

It’s a pink with a bit of coral and golden shimmer. Lovely! The formula was great and it applied in two coats.

And then just for fun I added some polka dots with Essie Absolutely Shore on my ring finger:

It was the first time I tried this so it’s less than perfect and my SV bubbled and smudged one dot :/
I still like it and think it’s a fun mani(although I may end up redoing that finger)! 🙂
