Orange you glad you aren't a TIGER:)

Chirality has done it AGAIN!!!! Just before Dawn, is a stunning polish, even I Like this Orange:) No wait I LOVE this Orange. I am sooooo not a orange person either.  When I first got this polish I was meh about it, it sat on my untried shelf for about 3 months.  I finally broke out this bad boy this weekend and was completely blown away!!!!
This is a flame orange, scattered holo!!!! This polish covers beautifully in only one coat!!!! The formula is perfection. and did I mention that you can stamp with it too:)
 Speaking of stamping.... As I was eating a bowl of frosted flakes (MY FAV) and yes I know how much sugar is in one bowl... Inspiration struck...  I decided to tiger stripe my lovely orange nails:) I used Cheeky Plate CH2 and my trusty Konad black stamping polish.  TOTAL LOVE!!!!
Well hold on to your purse strings ladies, cause word has it that Amanda has a fabulous new line out:) it is slightly controversial... but gorgeous,  I know that I am super excited!!!!  You can get this polish and many more here  Happy Monday Ladies!!!

No WHINE Left...

Now I know what you are thinking, what do you mean No Whine left... Not that kind of wine silly, there's always more of that:)  But I am talking about a fabulous polish by KB SHIMMER:) No Whine Left, is an eggplant purple crelly polish that is loaded with tons of blue, aqua, fuchsia, and purple hex glitters in all different sizes.  Now I noticed application of this polish is a little tricky as it slightly thicker than what I am used to, but after a good shake it, the consistency evens out and gorgeousness erupts:)
Two coats and this gem was good to go!!! However this polish is topcoat HUNGRY!!! I used 2 coats of Gelous and 2 coats of SV to obtain this awesome smoothness.  KB Shimmer has some Knock you socks off fabulous polishes, along with soaps and lotions too:) This polish retails for $8.75 and can be found on the KB SHIMMER website.  Hope you are having a great Sunday:) because it is back to the grind tomorrow!!!

Holy Holo Stamping

I have a fabulous new mani to show you tonight:) I wore this mani for 4 days and that is un-heard of for me. I am just loving all of the new holo colors that have come out recently, and I can't wait to see the new China Glaze Collection scheduled to come out in the next couple of months.  For tonight's mani I used Color Club Halo-Graphic, a gorgeous pink Holo ,and Sinful Colors Black on Black.  
 Over the base color black I stamped with Halo-Graphic using the Bundle Monster plate BM-314. I was super surprised how well this polish stamped, most holos are too thin to stamp well with but this worked like a dream:) For my accent nail I just inverted the colors and stamp pattern:)
What do you think of Holos, I LOVE them. I'm also thinking about a giveaway soon... Maybe St. Patty's Day.  Green is one of my favorite colors after all.  What would you like to see as prizes???  Let me know and I hope you all are having a great week:)

China Glaze has a new collection out that is super cool!!! It is called Tranzitions, this is two polishes in one bottle:)  The color of the polish changes with the application of a top coat:) First up is Duplicityy, this light smoky teal has a subtle shimmer and it tranzitions into a dark teal.  The formula for this polish is butter, the tranzition is a little streaky so you may need more than once coat of topcoat.
 Next up is Split Perso-NAIL-ity, this polish is a dusty pink with a slight shimmer that tranzitions into a medium pink that leans slightly purple.  This polish has the same issues as Duplicityy, it is streaky when a top coat is applied and the color change is not uniform. I do think that If I had waited until the first coat was dry I would have had better luck with the streakies (I'm always in a rush).
  Finally we have Shape Shifter, this dark Metallic Grey is my favorite!!!! This polish tranzitions into a deep shimmery purple that I LOVE!!!! I think with this one I learned my lesson, I let my first coat dry all the way and look no streakies!!!!
Over all these polishes are sweet. I think 75% of my issues were due to the fact that I am super impatient and don't like to wait. But otherwise I Love these polishes!!! There are six polishes in this collection and they retail for $6-9. You can pick these up at Ulta, Sally's or anywhere else China Glaze is sold. Happy Sunday Dolls hope you have a great  week!!!

Classy Simplicity

Since I have been wearing the lovely Vivid Lacquer for the last few days I figured I would show you a fabulous mani I did several weeks ago.  I started with a base of Chirality Katydid, a light green holographic polish. This is a loose linear holo, with a fabulous shimmer:)
 I did a black accent nail using Sinful Colors Black on Black.  I then added a black stamp using the BM 214 plate.  I only did half of the square scroll work design on the tip, and TADA!!!!    
I ♥ the classy simplicity of this mani:) It stands out because of the colors, but remains classy because of the design.  Now if you don't have any Chirality polishes you NEED them!!!! and for $7 they are a steal!!!!  And go show Amanda some ♥ on Facebook!!!!

vivid lacquer!!!!

Today I have 7 wonderful polishes from Vivid Lacquer:) Anni over at Vivid Lacquer is a polish genius!!! First up is Spaaaace! This cobalt blue jelly is jammed packed with white glitters,  white shards, and a splash of lime green micro glitter. I have 2 coats of Spaaaace! followed by a coat of SV and just look at that depth of color!!!!

Next is The Test Subject's Companion, this creamy gray is definitely not drab, with it's playful pink hearts and pink and white hexs, bars, and squares.  Two coats followed with a coat of SV and fabulousness!!!!
 The sparkle of Would you Kindly? is out of this world. The Gold, Silver and Bronze glitters in multi sizes make this polish truly shine.  I use 1 coat (dabbing method) over black and wow!!! 
 The Cake is a Lie, this mingling of Red  and orange hexs , with a smattering of white and lime green micro glitters make this polish a smash hit. 1 dabbing coat over black!!!!
Woo! Tangent over China Glaze For Audrey is perfection!!!! This Multi-colored multi-shaped glitter would look great over any color!!!!  1 dabbing coat is all it took:)
 Pick your Portal is a white crelly, with a light infusion of orange and blue. I have a love/hate relationship with this polish. I hate that I don't love this polish. It has a perfect formula but the color hates me!!!!

In the house of Upside Down, is a light blue jelly with pink butterfly glitters  and pink and blue round glitters.  This polish probably gave me the biggest headache out of all of them because It just doesn't look right on me:( I tried it over white, silver, and blue. I finally just left 3 coats with no base. 

Vivid Lacquer is just gorgeous!!! These polishes retail for $9 for a Full size or $4.50 for a mini at her Etsy store!!! She also has some gorgeous stamping plates that I'll show you next week!!! And Show her some Love on Facebook!!!

It's Lovely.... The Metallics

Ohhhh look at the shiny's!!!! I have the three metallic (shimmer) polishes from the Lovely collection by Zoya to show you tonight:) Now before I get started, this collection has taught me a very valuable lesson, pastels really don't look good with my skin tone:(  Up first is Julie, this is my favorite of the metallic.   This is a beautiful soft wisteria purple, and I ♥ wisteria.  I actually have my whole back fence lined with wisteria vines:) The formula on this is easy, complete coverage in 2 coats, but the shimmer is slightly irritating on cleanup.

  Next is Gie Gie, a gorgeous cherry blossom pink metallic. This polish is fabulous, but it looks terrible against my pale pasty winter skin:(   This polish a shimmery coverage in 2 easy coats!!!

 Lastly is Piaf, this polish is described by fresh forsythia yellow metallic. As much as I wanted to love this yellow, it just doesn't look great on me:(  This polish leans slightly green, the formula is excellent and just what you expect from Zoya:)

So how Lovely is Lovely:) I'm just hoping that these color will look fabulous on me once I get a little sun;)  And guess what Starting Monday running through the 13th, is running a special three polishes for free you only pay $10 processing and handling. Just use the promo code Zoya2013!!!

It's LOVELY... the Cremes

 Oh boy!!!! The Zoya Lovely Collection, and oh how lovely it is!!!  This collection is all pastels and spring flowers.  These colors are rich, creamy, and delicate!!!! Up first is Jacqueline, a perfect magnolia nude cream.  The color of this polish is perfection:) the application, however leaves something to be desired.  This polish was thick, and took three coats to achieve complete coverage:(
 Next up is Neely:) This polish was a easy 2 coat path to minty green perfection:) that is super easy to love!!! I can't wait to see what this polish looks like on my tanned toes this summer:)

 My favorite of the whole collection is Blu.  This polish is described as a lucky, hyacinth blue cream. I don't know if I would use the word lucky; spectacular, fabulous, or gorgeous would be more appropriate:)  I use two coats of this perfection in a bottle and I can't stop staring, even without glitter!!!!
These polishes are available on, and retail for $8. I will have the other three from the collection tomorrow!!!  Happy Hump Day Dolls!!!
